WhatsApp introduces new Snapchat stories like feature called Status

WhatsApp introduces new Snapchat stories like feature called Status

Following the success of Snapchat stories, Facebook wanted to bring their own version of stories which was introduced in Instagram not too long ago and now it has decided to bring the similar feature to its most used messaging app as well. WhatsApp has just launched a new tab that lets users share decorated photos, videos and GIFs that vanish after 24 hours. The featured titled “Status” is WhatsApp’s way of moving away from a traditional messaging app and more towards a social networking hub. All the messages would be end to end encrypted, a feature that WhatsApp is usually well known for. ‘Status’ was first revealed as an experimental feature in November when screenshots surfaced of the app on an Android device showing the tab between Chats and Calls. The new feature lets users scribble on images or add text and emojis – just like Snapchat. The update has already started to roll out on most devices starting from today so if you guys want to give it a try, update your apps today and is available for both Android and iOS...

Facebook Messenger adds group video calling feature for up to 6 people

Facebook Messenger has started rolling out a new update today which adds the much awaited group video calling feature for both Android and iOS. The group video calling feature currently works for up to 6 people at a time. More members of a group chat can listen in or join via a voice call up to maximum 50 people as that is the cap set by Facebook on its group chats. Initiating a group video call is easy, just open your desired group chat (or create a new one), and select who you’d like to ring individually, or call the entire group and see who picks up. It’s pretty straight forward but the real test is the actual performance of Facebook Messenger’s group video calls under various network conditions and data speeds. The feature is good especially for people who have relatives and friends living abroad. For those of you who have already received the update, we would love to hear your experiences with your first group video call in the comments below. Cheers!!...

Google starts rolling out a new refreshing UI for the Play Store

Google is known for its regular updates and since the introduction of Pixel, the first ever phone made by Google the company showed off a new Play Store UI in a support video for their  flagship device. Now, users are reporting that the new UI is slowly rolling out to devices. This update includes new colors and a revamped install page. The first change you’ll notice is on the home page of the Play Store. A new shade of green has taken over for the Android-y shade we’re used to seeing.

Moving on to the install page, the “Install” button is much bigger. The ratings and installs information looks completely different. They’ve removed the category icons, which makes it easier to read.
