WhatsApp introduces 'View Once' feature to Android beta testers

  Facebook is currently evolving into the world of ephemeral texting. After introducing self-erasing images and texts on Messenger and Instagram, Facebook is now bringing this feature to WhatsApp. WhatsApp's Android beta testers have started receiving a "View Once" feature, which removes photos and videos as soon as you view and dismiss them. According to WABetaInfo, you'll know if you have access to the new functionality if you notice a dedicated button (that appears like a timer) in the caption input box. Unlike WhatsApp's disappearing messages, which vanish after seven days, photos and videos sent with the view once mode is one-time-use only and vanish after you close them. Once your media has been seen, you'll receive an automated notification. Despite the added transparency of anonymity, there are a few peculiarities to be aware of before diving in.

iOS users can now easily share tweets as Instagram Stories

  Pic Credit: Twitter Twitter's iOS app has been upgraded to allow users to post tweets to their Instagram Story fast and effortlessly, according to the company . The new experience, which began as a test last year, is designed to assist those who frequently publish tweets on Facebook's Instagram. Users could previously publish tweets on Instagram — or any other social media — by capturing screenshots natively. The feature is accessible through the iOS share sheet: simply hit the share icon below any tweet and choose “Instagram Stories” from the list of applications. The tweet can be enlarged, repositioned, and enhanced with the image service's standard selection of text, stickers, music, and annotations once it's on Instagram. The upgrade is only available for iOS users, as the Android version of Twitter does not currently support sharing tweets on Instagram Stories. Of course, you could always take a copy of a tweet and manually publish it to an Instagram Story.

Samsung to Launch Its New Virtual Assistant: Sam

  While virtual assistants have been around for a while, Samsung is expected to introduce a new 3D virtual assistant to the next generation. The company may officially debut this character as 'Sam.' The brand's virtual assistant is currently a 2D character, but when a new dimension is launched, it may return with a new dimension. Like many other firms, the South Korean digital company has officially launched a 2D virtual assistant. The company, however, has opted to produce a three-dimensional variant to take the trend to the next level. The answer is simple: 3D characters are more appealing to the eye. As a result, once Sam arrives, people are likely to forget about Bixby. Although the character is currently two-dimensional, it has experienced a significant transformation since returning to social media. Samsung's new virtual assistant, on the other hand, will feature additional textures, positions, and expressions. The company's goal is to make its virtual assis
