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.
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.
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 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.
We all know that recording even a little music requires top-notch technology, which never comes off easily. You definitely need to have a good amount of money to live up to your dreams. But, iZotope, an audio company, has a different plan for you. The company is already known for its top-quality recording gear and software, but this time, it has an intent to solve your problem with just a gadget called Spire Studio.
Yes, this cylindrical shaped hardware has inputs for instruments and microphones that connect the device to the editing app on your smartphone. Apart from this, Spire Studio has a rechargeable battery that, according to the company, can last for four hours. And, that means you can have plenty of time to record anywhere.
Let’s talk about its features.
Spire Studio has a built-in mic, two pre-amped inputs and audio effects to give your recording process a fine touch of professionalism. The recording pod is specifically designed to fit in your backpack so that you can take it wherever you want. And if your bandmates have their own Spire too, you can send your songs to them for recording the remaining part.
For professional musicians who like to have quick access to things, the Spire Studio is just a go-to option for them, whereas for beginners, this device is a perfect solution to learn the art of recording in an easy way.
Today is all about WhatsApp because the messaging app has rolled out status updates that will let you write whatever in your mind on a colorful image background. Well, it all started as a simple text-only feature, later it allowed users to add photos and videos. Now, users have the ability to choose fonts and background colors. Moreover, they can even add links to their status to show something specific.
“Now you never have to worry about getting the word out to all your family and friends. Whether you’re looking for vacation recommendations or notifying a group about the address for a party, the text-based status feature allows you to update your contacts in a fun and personal way.”
So now, a user has three options to add excitement and creativity to his status. He can go with emojis to accentuate a certain feeling, and with background colors and amazing font options, he can give an absolutely eye-catching look to the status update.
Apart from technical reasons, there is one big thing that gave Pixel and Nexus a slight edge over other competing smartphones – a complete access to all of the latest perks (services) from Google. And, Google Contacts was certainly one of those apps. But, wait! Things seem to be changing now as Google has made Contacts app available for all Android phones.
Sounds cool, right?
For those who don’t have clear understanding of what Contacts really is: It is a Google’s app that manages all your contacts. The app was previously accessible on Pixel, Android, Nexus and Google Play Edition phones, but now anyone having Android Lollipop 5 or above can make the most of it.
Contacts is extremely useful for people having multiple Google accounts and looking for a platform that can allow them to access all contacts easily from one channel.
So, if you have been utilizing third-party apps because you don’t have a Pixel, Nexus or Android One, don’t worry. From now on, Contacts will work perfectly on your Android phone as well.
