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.
