WhatsApp Video Could Soon Get Picture-In-Picture Support

Tyler Lee July 20, 2017

It wasn’t too long ago that WhatsApp launched the video calling feature for its platform. Given that there are a ton of other messenger apps that support video calling, we guess it’s only a matter of time before they introduced the feature, and now it looks like the feature could be getting a bit of an upgrade.

In a recent tweet by @WABetaInfo, it seems that in the latest beta for WhatsApp for Android, it looks like the video calling feature will be a picture-in-picture (PIP) mode. What this means is that users will be able to shrink the video calling window and move it around the display, thus allowing them to chat with others while maintaining the video call connection.

However according to the tweet, it seems that this particular feature is for Android and for Android 8.0. We’re not sure if by that they mean that it won’t be supported on older Android builds, or if it is only currently being tested on Android 8.0. There was also no mention of iOS, but we expect that if the Android version were to have it, the iOS version should be getting it too.

No word on when this feature will be exiting beta, but if you do rely on WhatsApp’s video calling feature, then this could be a convenient feature to look out for in the future.

LastPass Announces New Family Sharing Feature Coming This Summer

Tyler Lee July 20, 2017

Passwords are generally a personal thing, but sometimes certain things might be required for sharing. For example if you and your partner share the same bank account, then obviously both of you would need to know the password, and the same can be applied to other things like paying the bills for phone, internet, utilities, and etc.

With so many things to keep track of, things could get confusing and password manager LastPass has announced a new feature in the form of LastPass Families. According to the company, “Enter LastPass Families, where you can store everything from bank accounts to passports to credit cards. Your details are secure, organized the way you want, and easily shared with your spouse, kids, in-laws, and more. You can even give access to others in the event of an emergency. The family manager can quickly add and remove members to the account, making it easy to get everyone up and running.”

Basically users will be able to choose what passwords and details that they want to share with family members, but at the same time users will also be able to keep personal accounts private in their own vault separate from that of Families. LastPass Families will support up to 6 family members at once, and it only requires one user to purchase the subscription plan.

The feature will be launched later this summer and for those who are interested, you’ll be able to sign up for early access at LastPass’ website.

The Nintendo Switch Online App Will Be A Major Battery Drain

Tyler Lee July 19, 2017

As you might have heard, Nintendo has recently released the Nintendo Switch Online app for mobile devices. For those unfamiliar, this app is Nintendo’s way of offering voice communication for players as well as access to certain online services and features for its games. However it seems that the app will prove to be a massive battery drain for users.

According to a report from Eurogamer, it seems that one of the requirements for users to use its mobile app for voice communication is that their phone’s display has to be on all the time. This is versus other apps that offer voice chat, such as WhatsApp, Skype, Viber, and etc., where users are not required to have their displays on.

This means that having your display on all the time will quickly drain your phone’s battery. It also seems that voice chat will end when you swap between apps, so if you receive a message or email and want to tend to it while you’re chatting, no such luck, unfortunately. However we should point out that the app is still pretty damn brand new, which means that hopefully based on this feedback, Nintendo will do something about it, otherwise it seems unlikely that players will want to pay the company money to use its online services come 2018.

Nintendo made a rather interesting and controversial decision by launching the app as opposed to baking voice chat into the Switch’s operating system. The company tried to justify this by saying that since we have our phones on us all the time, it makes sense. Whether or not this will work out in the long-run remains to be seen, but for now it doesn’t look that way.

G Suite Gets A New Recruitment Tool In ‘Google Hire’

Tyler Lee July 19, 2017

If you’re looking for a way to attract and to hire new talent, Google might have something for you. The company has recently announced a new recruitment tool called “Hire” that will be integrated within the G Suite of apps, such as Gmail and Google Calendar, thus expanding the reach of the tool.

According to Google, “Hire makes it easy for you to identify talent, build strong candidate relationships and efficiently manage the interview process end-to-end. It integrates seamlessly with G Suite apps like Gmail and Google Calendar, which more than 3 million businesses use, many of them to drive recruiting efforts. With the introduction of Hire, customers now have a hiring app alongside G Suite’s familiar, easy-to-use tools that can help them run an efficient recruiting process.”

Like we said there will be integration with G Suite apps such as Gmail, and according to Google, this will be applied to communications where emails can be synced across Gmail or Hire. There is also integration with Calendar where you can schedule interviews and Calendar will include important information such as contact information, interview schedule, and even what kind of questions interviewers should focus on.

If this sounds like something you might be interested in, then head on over to the Google Hire website to learn more about it.

Nintendo Switch Online App Is Now Available

Tyler Lee July 19, 2017

A couple of weeks ago, Nintendo announced that they would be launching the Nintendo Switch Online app. This is Nintendo’s upcoming app that will be used for its online services, where users will be able to interact with other gamers, manage their games, and also more importantly use it for voice chat.

The app was scheduled for a launch on the 21st of July, but it seems that someone might have pulled the trigger a bit earlier than expected because the app is now available for download for both iOS and Android devices. That being said, it seems that there’s not much that one can do with the app at the moment since Splatoon 2 is the only game that will fully support it at the moment.

We expect that other games will be supported in the future, but for now if you don’t own Splatoon 2 then we guess you won’t really be using the app all that much yet. Do take note that according to Polygon, it seems that Nintendo is working on stabilizing the app’s servers which means that you might experience some connectivity issues for now, but presumably it will stabilize eventually.

Once it does, users will be able to log into the app with their Nintendo Account that is associated with their Switch console. If you haven’t linked your Account with your Switch console, then perhaps now is a good time to do so.

Adobe Lightroom For iOS Gains Support For 3D Touch, Apple Pencil

Tyler Lee July 19, 2017

The thing with the iPad Pro is that thanks to the Apple Pencil, it makes it the perfect tool to use if you want to draw on the go, or if you want to be able to edit photos in the field. Granted editing on a computer might be better thanks to a larger display, but if you had to edit in the field, the iPad Pro would come in handy, especially when paired with Adobe Lightroom.

The good news for photographers is that if the above describes your workflow, you might be pleased to learn that Adobe has recently issued an update for Lightroom for iOS, where support for the Apple Pencil is one of the new features that they’ll be introducing. To be more specific, users with the Apple Pencil will be able to make edits that might be pressure-sensitive. The changelog reads, “Supports Apple Pencil for pressure-sensitive application of enhancements”.

For those who don’t own the iPad Pro or Apple Pencil, not to worry as Adobe has not forgotten about you guys either. For iPhone owners, Adobe will be introducing a similar feature but instead of the Apple Pencil, it will rely on 3D Touch which is also pressure-sensitive. According to Adobe, “Supports 3D Touch for pressure-sensitive application of enhancements on devices that support 3D Touch”.

The update should already be live so if you haven’t done so already, you’ll be able to get your hands on it via the iTunes App Store.

New Snapchat Update Lets Users Record Up To 6 Video Snaps At Once

Tyler Lee July 19, 2017

snapchat uploadIf you’re someone who posts Snaps on Snapchat rather frequently, such as maybe multiple times a day, then you might be interested to learn of a new update to the app that will help make multiple posts a breeze. In the recent update, users will now be able to record up to 6 video snaps at once.

The feature dubbed Multi-Snap basically lets you record multiple snaps at once. All users have to do is press and hold the capture button to record a video Snap, and keep holding it where it will then record consecutive snaps. Given that even Snap lasts 10 seconds, if you keep holding it for about a minute you will be able to record up to 6 Snaps at once.

Users will also be able to delete any Snap that they don’t want, and the Snaps can then be posted individually to your Story and appear in chronological order, so if you have a particularly long video that you’d like to record, this will be one way to go about it without any interruptions. Other new features include Tint Brush that helps users add color to any object they want in their photo.

The features are already live, although it seems that for now the Multi-Snap feature is only available to iOS users, which means that Android users will have to wait for a while before it is enabled for them.

Google Introduces New Security Features To Block Unverified Apps

Tyler Lee July 19, 2017

Following a phishing scam that was targeting Google Docs users, Google decided to help beef up security. However it looks like the company’s efforts at protecting their users and services isn’t quite done yet (which is obviously great news) as they have announced new security measures that will be put into place.

According to Google, “Beginning today, we’re rolling out an “unverified app” screen for newly created web applications and Apps Scripts that require verification. This new screen replaces the “error” page that developers and users of unverified web apps receive today. The “unverified app” screen precedes the permissions consent screen for the app and lets potential users know that the app has yet to be verified. This will help reduce the risk of user data being phished by bad actors.”

This notification/warning to users about unverified apps actually serves a couple of purposes. One of which lets users know when an app hasn’t been verified and that they should proceed with caution, or not at all. The second, according to Google, will allow developers to test their apps more easily as users can acknowledge the unverified app alert and choose to help out in the testing if they choose.

Google writes, “We’re committed to fostering a healthy ecosystem for both users and developers. These new notices will inform users automatically if they may be at risk, enabling them to make informed decisions to keep their information safe, and will make it easier to test and develop apps for developers.

Court Grants Woman Divorce After Being ‘Ghosted’ By Husband

Tyler Lee July 18, 2017

In life sometimes there are uncomfortable moments in which we do not want to deal with them, so instead we ignore them, which is usually not the best idea. In fact in recent times when it comes to dating and relationships, a term called “ghosting” has actually been coined which pretty much refers to what we talked about above.

According to the Urban Dictionary, “ghosting” is defined as, “the act of suddenly ceasing all communication with someone the subject is dating, but no longer wishes to date.” However it seems that over in Taiwan, the courts do not look on the practice too fondly in which they decided to grant a woman a divorce after her husband had “ghosted” her by ignoring her text messages.

The husband had apparently been ignoring his wife’s text messages over the course of six months despite reading them, and the court concluded that based on this evidence that it was grounds for divorce. “The defendant did not inquire about the plaintiff, and the information sent by the plaintiff was read but not replied to. The couple’s marriage is beyond repair.”

This is actually an interesting ruling, although not the first of its kind. A couple of months ago, the Delhi High Court in India ruled that the blue ticks on WhatsApp (indicating that a message was read) can act as a proof of receipt for legal documents.

Latest 1Password Update For iOS Auto-Copies One-Time Passwords

Tyler Lee July 17, 2017

It is generally not recommended to use the same password for all the sites and services you use, because if a hacker were to get ahold of that password, all your accounts would be compromised. This is where password managers such as 1Password come in handy, where users can store and generate passwords without having to memorize anything.

Now if you’re a 1Password user on iOS, you might be pleased to learn that the folks at AgileBits has recently released an update for the app that brings about a rather convenient feature, which is the ability to auto-copy one-time passwords onto iOS’ clipboard. This means that this will save users the time and effort of having to do it manually, especially when it comes to two-factor one-time passwords.

According to the update’s changelog, “One-time passwords now copy to the clipboard automatically whenever you fill an item that has a one-time password”. The update will also bring about other features, such as creating vaults for your 1Password accounts, along with a bunch of other features that might not necessarily be applicable to you.

The update is now live so do head on over to the iTunes App Store to get your hands on the update if you haven’t done so already.
