Twitch Brings in FailArmy and The Pet Collective as Two New Channels

I think Twitch needs no introduction since it has been making a buzz around for quite some time now. And this time, Twitch has taken a step further by launching two new channels: FailArmy and The Pet Collective.

Interestingly, both of the channels publish funny content. FailArmy showcases viral clips submitted by a huge number of fans, whereas The Pet Collective displays trending animal videos.

Jane Weedon, director of business development for Twitch says, “The meteoric rise of IRL vlogging category on Twitch is a clear sign that our community loves commentating on everyday activities. We have also witnessed the appeal of shared experiences when it comes to watching programmatic TV marathons together. FailArmy has the top collection of IRL viral clips from all over the world and The Pet Collective is representative of the internet’s love for cute animals. Bringing their programming to Twitch breathes new life into the content by adding commentary from viewers, while tapping into their love of collective viewing.”

For your information, FailArmy is now live and going to debut a “Fails of the Week” series later today, while the Pet Collective will be online very soon.

Airbus Flying Taxi All Set to Make First Flight in 2018

2018 seems to be the year where you might have a chance to travel by flying taxi. You don’t believe it, right? Well, it is all real because the European aviation giant Airbus claimed that the company’s flying taxi concept will be able to make its first flight by the end of next year.

However, before making the trips fully autonomous, human pilots will do the job, whereas a flying taxi has a capacity to take up to four passengers at a time. Apart from that, Airbus flying taxi has been designed to take vertical take-offs that also aim to connect with major transportation hubs including airports and train stations.

After taking a successful ground test, the company is pretty optimistic about its launch. Therefore, this is what Marius Bebesel, City Airbus’s chief engineer has to say: “We now have a better understanding of the performance of City Airbus’ innovative electric propulsion system, which we will continue to mature through rigorous testing while beginning the assembly of the full-scale City Airbus flight demonstrator.”

According to CNBC, the Airbus is planning to operate the craft on fixed routes with maximum speed of 80mph. Well, this will certainly be an amazing ride to save plenty of time and avoid massive traffic on the roads.

Dating App Bumble Launches Bizz, A Safe Platform for Professional Networking

Bumble, unlike other dating apps, is unique in its nature because it allows women to choose who they want to talk to. By using Bumble, women have all the authority to make their choices. On the other hand, men have to wait to be contacted.

Just a few months ago, Bumble made an announcement that it would add business networking feature to its dating app. And, finally it’s here. The new feature is called Bizz and it has already been launched in US, UK, Canada, France and Germany.

The same “women make the first move” theme is integrated into Bizz. Whereas, the core purpose of Bizz is to “clear up the grey areas in networking that often make women feel uncomfortable”.

However, matching Bizz with LinkedIn is not right because it is not meant to provide recruitment services. Although the app allows women to network with professionals, but it won’t get you a job at all, as it is intended for networking and mentoring only.

Instagram Updates – Now You Can Use Filters & Masks in Live Video Too

Can you just imagine Instagram without its amazing filters? Of course, no. And, why would you? But unfortunately, till now, you have not been able to make the most out of its filters in the live streaming feature, right?

Well, the gigantic photo sharing platform has published a blog post in which it reveals that the face filters are available for live videos as well. Not only this, Instagram has also added a super-cool virtual sunglass as a filter to make you look more dapper, but it will only be live for the next week.

The excitement doesn’t end here as users will be allowed to tap on the glasses to make others believe that they are at a ravishing location.

The feature has started rolling out to Instagram users all around the world, so you will get to see it soon on your account too.

Google’s Pixel 2 Arriving on October 4th – Promises Better Camera & Battery Life

Google has finally revealed the launch date of its much-awaited flagship smartphone: the Google Pixel 2.

Yes, the company has announced that the new version of Pixel will be unveiled on 4th of October, a year after the successors Pixel and Pixel XL came out.

As per the new YouTube video, the search giant hasn’t revealed anything about the device so far, but has made some big promises to offer an improved battery life, memory storage and camera in Pixel 2.

All this has been exemplified in a video that shows a search with a user asking questions related to phone’s battery, storage and camera problems. He even asks why his device is extremely slow and fragile. And, this is why, Google has plans to resolve such issues with the new Pixel smartphones.

Furthermore, Google Assistant is also going to be an integral feature of the Pixel phones, whereas it is, once again, expected to be manufactured by HTC. On the other hand, a 6-inch follow-up to the Pixel XL is all set to be launched by next month. However, it will reportedly be manufactured by LG.

Both of the new versions will be comprised of the latest Android 8.0 Oreo, which is yet to be rolled out officially for the users.
