Google is all set to launch Android Wear 2.0 and two new Smartwatches at CES 2017

Google are all set to announce two new Smartwatches at the upcoming CES 2017 next month in Las Vegas. Details of which have been kept a hush hush but what we do know for a fact is that both the devices would be operating on the all new Android Wear 2.0 which promises to add a bunch of new exciting features. The most prominent additions to Android Wear 2.0 is the support for standalone apps which don’t require your smartphone, support for Android Pay and support for Google’s voice-activated Assistant that can be currently found in the Pixel devices. The update is also scheduled to arrive on a bunch of newer devices but for those of you who have older devices like the original Moto 360  or the ASUS ZenWatch are (unfortunately) not supported due to their hardware limitations most noticeable being the absence of NFC which is required for Android Pay to work. The devices that are scheduled to receive the Android Wear 2.0 update include the following: Moto 360 Gen 2 Moto 360 Sport LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE LG Watch Urbane LG G Watch R Polar M600 Casio Smart Outdoor Watch Nixon Mission Tag Heuer Connected Fossil Q Wander Fossil Q Marshal Fossil Q Founder Michael Kors Access Bradshaw Smartwatch Michael Kors Access Dylan Smartwatch Huawei Watch Huawei Watch Ladies Asus ZenWatch 2 Asus ZenWatch 3 Even though we were  left a bit saddened by the fact that the Moto 360 would not be getting the update since that was our very first Android Wear device, it does give us an added incentive to treat ourself to any of the aforementioned or maybe even one of the new upcoming Google devices this holiday season. Will keep you guys posted on this in the weeks to...

Whatsapp working on a new update which allows you to Edit and Delete Sent Messages

Whatsapp has been adding a lot of new features lately with the most recent ones being the option to make video calls and share GIF files. The most commonly used messaging app in the world is about to add another useful feature, the ability to edit and delete sent messages. Our friends on twitter, WABetaInfo (one of the most reliable sources of whatsapp updates especially for iOS) claim to have discovered the feature in the Whatsapp 2.17.1.869 beta build for iOS. A video tweeted by them shows the deletion process in action. If you want to delete a sent message on both ends, hold the desired message long enough until the options for that message appear on your screen, select the “revoke” option and the message will be deleted on both ends. The edit option works the same way, hold down the message you want to edit and select the “edit” option to make amends in the message content. WhatsApp beta for iOS 2.17.1.869: how revoking messages work. #hidden#whatsappbetapic.twitter.com/pEfGfZO1gN — WABetaInfo (@WABetaInfo) December 14, 2016j Both the features are currently in testing stage on iOS (as in the case with all previous major Whatsapp updates) and there has been no official word out as yet from the company as to exactly when we can expect to get these on our Android devices. One thing is for sure though, the edit and revoke (delete message) features would definitely come in handy on a number of different occasions. For now, that’s all the update we have on this, will keep you guys posted on any news that surface pertaining the same in the weeks to...

Starting from today, our favorite web giants have added a bunch of cool new features to Google Assistant as well as Google Duo. The Santa tracker has been added to Google Assistant which tells you the whereabouts of everyone’s favorite old man. For example, if you ask assistant right now, it’ll currently say he’s preparing for departure at the North Pole and will leave in 5 days. There are plenty of new Santa jokes that have been added to assistant as well which further enhances the fun and humor not just among the younger generation but for all those who are young at heart. For those of you who are celebrating Hanukkah, you can also ask it to spin the dreidel, too. It’s all in the name of holiday cheer 🙂   Besides this, Google have also integrated the festivities within Google Duo, their official video calling app with a twist; in which few unsuspecting kids experienced the magic of Santa in New York’s Made by Google store. Check out the video below and see the excitement on the faces of all the children who were lucky enough to be a part of this wonderful activity.
