A new set of app icons has been discovered in the backend code of Twitter’s app, based on the theme of seasonal celebrations and festivities.




The feature of themed icons is offered by Twitter Blue, which is Twitter’s subscription program that allows some of the platform’s dedicated users to get access to a variety of additional features.

 

One of the latest features offered by Twitter Blue includes the Undo Tweet option that allows users to retract a tweet within 30 seconds of sending it, to edit any errors. The Reader Mode and Bookmark Folders are also part of the offer, although there isn’t anything that extraordinary about them.

YouTube is developing a new tool for YouTube Studio, called Search Insights, which is designed to give insights about what users are searching for on the platform. The information will be provided to creators in relation to their channels and content, as well as for other general search queries.

 

The feature is currently being tested by YouTube and is going to be available in the Analytics/Research tab. There will also be two separate tabs for query research: the Your Viewers’ Searches tab that provides a listing of what viewers are searching for, and the Searches Across YouTube tab that provides insight into the most common search queries based on keywords.

 

The first insights tab will show what people who regularly view your content are also looking for on YouTube, including key topics of interest among them. It will also show the overall search volume of each viewer, along with the amount of traffic that your channel has drawn based on each query.

Online shopping and safety risks

Online shopping has become a huge trend where billions of people shop online through various websites over the internet. Even if the buyers take a rest for a few weeks, the brand comes up with massive sale campaigns that attract the buyers incredibly. Buying was never this convenient until the discovery of eCommerce.

Are you also a regular online purchaser? You must be overwhelmed with the sales offered frequently by your favorite brands, right? Currently, most of the brands worldwide are offering Black Friday sales where people get magnificent discounts on items that they couldn’t buy at their original price.

This is where people forget everything and rather than visiting the stores, head to the online websites to get their hands on their favorite items before the stock runs out. But, what they forget is the risk of entering too many websites without keeping in mind their data collection trends.

WhatsApp will soon release two new updates for its users

Being one of the most widely used communication mediums, WhatsApp keeps on adding new updates frequently to offer the users an improved experience. Up till now, there has been no such feature integrated by the company which users didn’t appreciate because, with every new update, the app just gets even better.

Having that said, the company is now all set to roll out two new features for its users regarding audio messages and improved message-deleting options. Since the company has always brought the best updates, the hopes for these two new features are pretty high.

Everyone has some people on their contact list who send longer voice notes and audio messages that seem dreadful to listen to just because of their length. Sometimes these voice messages are pretty important to listen but you lack enough time.

Thankfully, WhatsApp took this matter into consideration and has rolled out an update where you can fast-forward the voice notes from 0.5x to 2x speed. Now, the company is doing the same for audio messages as well.

Audio messages are simply the forwarded voice notes from one chat to another. Currently, this new update is being tested out and is in its beta version so, we can expect it to be rolled out anytime soon.
