Messenger Rooms

Facebook ready to rival Zoom via Messenger Rooms

Facebook is launching a series of new products to expand its options in the video chat segment

Scandal or lack of success and the high number of Zoom usage has broken every statistic. And the reaction from the competition was not long in coming. Facebook unveiled Messenger Rooms, a total reconception of the app’s video calling service.

Up to 50 people can access this video service, and people should not be invited individually, Facebook users can post the link on their wall or in groups or event pages. Furthermore, participants do not have to have a Messenger or Facebook account, a browser is enough and you can become a part of it.

But on the other hand, the example of Zoom infiltrations has increased security levels and the caller can close the room to unwanted people.

All the gallantry of creative backgrounds and new filters are also present here. 14 new filters that provide professional lighting for the environment and the face. Messenger Rooms are starting to spread today, the move came as a result of high demand, more than 700 million video calls are made every day on Messenger and WhatsApp

Also, Facebook is doubling the number of people in WhatsApp video calling from four to eight people, adding video calls to Facebook Dating as well, adding new live streaming features to both Facebook and Instagram.

New Facebook products are coming as global pandemic has forced hundreds of millions of people to stay inside and rely on digital tools for almost everything.

Facebook Gaming

Facebook’s latest move, a warning to YouTube and Twitch

Facebook will launch today an app for gaming fans called Facebook Gaming

A strong move from the social network, Facebook Gaming would be Facebook’s first attempt to confront the dominators of this market like Google YouTube and Amazon Twitch.

[td_block_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_2″]

The app will be free and comes years after investments that make 700 million of the 2.5 billion users per month engage in gaming content on the platform. The application is designed to view and record video game recordings, a growing sector in recent years.

While most of the world is isolated at home due to coronavirus, the $160 billion global video game business is marking a boom.

The company has tested Facebook Gaming in Southeast Asia and Latin America for the past 18 months and plans to launch it on Google Play on Monday while the iOS version when will be approved form Apple.

In the video game market, Facebook ranks third after YouTube and Twitch in terms of hours watched. Currently gaming content users see in it the main app. The new app includes games, access to player communities but the real success will be how much will be used to watch and broadcast live video games.

Instagram redesigns IGTV with creators as the focus

The Discover option may be the biggest update

Instagram is updating their IGTV app, likely in hopes of getting more people to use the service and promote creators who make long videos.

[td_block_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_2″]

The company indicated yesterday that the homepage has been completely redesigned to display a top-up creator, tailored to each user based on who they follow, and whose app content they think might be interesting to them. The app is also getting a Discover option to discover new and important IGTV content as well as a hands-free mode to record video.

The Discover option may be the biggest update, given that the app currently only displays videos from people already following users, as well as “popular” videos. IGTV is not widely used and requires people to log in to start watching. An ‘Discover’ option can make them see content faster and encourage them to actually use the app.

The company also releases a small but likely influential update to the Instagram app; users can post their IGTV content on their Stories, with the ability to play 15 seconds of content. This can make people click and watch the full video, giving the creators more attention.

All of these updates can make the app more attractive, at least in terms of creating videos and finding new content, but it’s not clear how many people actually enter the standalone app versus finding IGTV videos through themselves. 

The company declined to provide user numbers. (If it’s an indication, the Instagram app on Android and iOS has over 10 million reviews on both the App Store and Google Play. The IGTV app has just over 1,000 reviews on the App Store and about 25,000 on Google Play.) Still, no it’s surprising to see Instagram shift its focus even further to creators; as the company was recruiting talent from its Los Angeles office, encouraging them to use IGTV.

These updates seem to suggest that Instagram thinks people have trouble finding video, and that may be what is contributing to the low-numerical calculation on the platform. The company already allows people to post their IGTV videos on their feed, and thus popularize it on People’s Feeds, for similar reasons.

Instagram says it thinks IGTV is the “future of video”, so providing people who can actually find content to watch, as well as creators who like to keep them coming back, is essential to make it successful.

New Upcoming WhatsApp Features 2020

New features on WhatsApp, the first is coming in a few days

Aside from the temporary Stories, something else on Whatsapp will also be temporary.

Whatsapp has already reached a usage rate of more than 2 billion, with power that comes with accountability. It is precisely the level of security that the application offers. We have long seen an implemented “end-to-end encryption” level of security that guarantees that the conversation is private and read only by the recipient and the transmitter.

[td_block_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_2″]

Temporary messages will now be added. The sender will specify how long the message will last, from 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week, 1 month or 1 year, accompanied by a small clock icon indicating the status of the message and when it will disappear.

This option is next, as it is thought that the company will add other things like “screenshot report” or “ban text copying“.

There is no official release date for it yet, so let’s enjoy the “Dark Mode” feature for now!

The new Facebook design aims to make it simpler, easier and faster to use, it has larger fonts and a simplified layout to make it easier to use and make the site look more customized and more transparent.

Facebook is also introducing dark mode, which reduces brightness and thus has a slight effect on users’ eyes.

Dynamic E-mail in Gmail, what does it means for users?

Dynamic E-mail in Gmail, what does it means for users?

Google has updated the Gmail app for iOS and Android with support for AMP technology, giving users the ability to interact with emails as if they were dynamic web pages without having to open an external browser.

[td_block_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_2″ tdc_css=””]

The feature rolled out on Friday and comes after a presentation in July. Google gives some examples of what this innovation can be used for.

The search engine says you can use it to RSVP to events, manage subscriptions or respond to comments on Google Docs without sending an individual email.

So the feature makes it possible for emails to be updated dynamically, which means it’s hard to come up with outdated information. Even though Google is the one promoting the use of AMP, other companies are also supporting it. Microsoft for example has launched AMP support for Outlook.com

Facebook is testing the encryption of audio and video secret calls as a way to increase privacy in the app

Facebook is testing the encryption of audio and video secret calls as a way to increase privacy in the app

Earlier this year, the company was found to be paying people up to $20 a month in exchange for gaining comprehensive access to their phones.

[td_block_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_2″ tdc_css=””]

Consequently, in recent months, the company has begun to take steps towards providing a more private platform environment. And according to app researcher Jane Manchun Wong, Facebook has now begun testing another privacy-focused feature.

Currently, the mode of secret conversations embedded within Facebook Messenger encrypts only text messages and does not support the same for audio or video calls. Other unsupported features are group messaging, GIFs and online payments. But now, according to Wong, Facebook has begun testing encryption for audio and video calls in secret conversations.

Testing encoded audio and video calls on Facebook in this particular way does not mean that regular audio and video calls through the platform will also be encrypted.

From now on you can post to Instagram directly from Facebook

From now on you can post to Instagram directly from Facebook

Facebook has officially released an update to Creator Studio where businesses can schedule posts on Instagram and IGTV without leaving the social network for up to 6 months in advance.

[td_block_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_2″]

The ability to schedule postings on Instagram is not new because it has allowed it for third parties but will now be possible directly from Facebook by eliminating the restrictions that have existed.

Specifically you can post some images at once, which is impossible with third party tools. If you want about how to gain followers on instagram, you may check Simplygram.

What users need to do is link the business to Facebook with that of Instagram and then click the photo social network logo at the top of the page to post posts that will be published later.

But not only, because it will also be possible to add tags, location and crop images. However there is a disadvantage because it does not work with Instagram Stories.
