Facebook’s communications platform Messenger will now be offering automatic translation services (it is optional) from the Spanish language to English (or vice versa) for all its users based in the United States and in Mexico.
Dubbed as M Translations, the functionality had actually appeared first at this year’s F8 conference hosted by the world’s biggest social media brand back in May. Back then, Facebook had showcased M Translations as one of several new tools that business owners could take full advantage of in facilitating transactions with partners, vendors, or clients in Marketplace.
Google has confirmed recently that it will be starting to roll out its Android Messages feature for web in the next few days. For those not familiar with the feature, it basically lets Android users send and receive SMS (short message service) or RCS (rich communication services) messages using their desktop computer by way of the Internet.
Facebook may still be facing flak over the whole Cambridge Analytica thing, but it is business as usual for one of its brands, Messenger, which now supports sharing of 360 degree photos and videos, as well as HD video (720p quality, to be exact). But the social media giant has noted that before they can be shared, those 360 degree images and HD content have to be shot outside the Messenger mobile app.
The world’s most widely used social media platform has decided to integrate video chats into its Messenger Lite. Indeed, it makes sense for Facebook to to continue expanding the capabilities of Messenger Lite, and a video chat functionality should be a welcome and useful addition to this service.
For those who think SMS based text messaging is cool, wait till they get to experience Rich Communications Services (RCS). Or perhaps they already have and just do not know it. RCS is quite simply the next step when it comes to texting, with popular mobile apps like Facebook’s Messenger, LINE, and WhatsApp already offering messaging features that are way cooler than those regular SMS texts.
It was only about a couple of weeks ago when Apple got to roll out an iOS update that came with a fix for ChaiOS, a bug that causes the iMessage app on iOS powered mobile devices to crash and cause locking and restarting issues. This week, the tech giant finds itself dealing with yet another iMessage bug, and this time around, this latest issue may be far more damaging.
Based on a recent teardown of an APK (Android Package) by the folks from XDA Developers and Android Police, it appears that Google’s Android Messages mobile app (which is basically the rebranded iteration of Messenger for Android) may soon provide support for text messaging by way of an Internet browser like the tech giant’s own Chrome, Mozilla’s Firefox, or even
One week ago, a flaw was discovered on iOS and MacOS powered devices and machines. First reported by a software developer named Abraham Masri, the ChaiOS bug not only causes Apple gadgets to lock up, crash, and restart on their own, it also can lead to other more serious issues, like battery problems and resprings, among many others.
When Facebook first started deploying its Messenger Lite late last year, the social media giant had intended to roll it out to developing nations, especially those with below average Internet speeds. But after about a year since it debuted the mobile app in over a hundred countries, the company is now looking to launch the Android version of Messenger Lite to the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Ireland.
According to Nick Fox, the vice president of Communications Products at Google, US wireless carrier Sprint and Canadian mobile operator Rogers Communications have completed the first ever cross carrier Rich Communications Service (RCS) interconnection in the North American continent. Fox had made the announcement by way of a recent tweet last week.
