Back in July of last year, a report surfaced that said Facebook was planning on launching its own smart speaker, adding to the growing number of companies jumping on the bandwagon.
Facebook is rolling out a new ‘Protect’ feature for iOS users where it is urging then to install the Onavo VPN app on their iPhone. While this sounds good on paper, the Onvavo VPN app collects a user’s browsing history and data in the context of improving its service.
Facebook will be launching its subscription service tool on iOS beginning March 1. The social networking giant had introduced a way for publishers to sell their subscription to readers directly through Facebook in October last year. However, Apple and Facebook could not strike a deal on this due to which the subscription service was not released for iPhone and iPad users.
If you use Facebook Messenger on your iOS device, then you might have run into an issue where the app itself, or the iOS keyboard, become unresponsive.
What seems like a long time ago now, Facebook Messenger used to be baked right into the standard app. But then it got spun off into its own standalone app, and, since then, it has become an over cluttered mess.
For many Facebook users, the News Feed, the way they interact with the app more often than not, has become one giant advertisement. But that is finally going to change.
Facebook makes it easy to connect with people and places all over the globe, but one area where the social network has wanted to capitalize on even more is local.
Smart speakers are all the rage these days, along with the digital personal assistants on board. Even Apple is jumping on the bandwagon with the upcoming HomePod. And now Facebook wants in on the fun, too.
Way back in August of 2015, Facebook launched what it called “M”, which was a digital assistant baked right into the company’s Messenger platform.
Facebook is taking a leaf out of Snapchat’s playbook (again) by announcing “World Effects” for Messenger, an AR feature that lets you place 3D objects on top of people or animals around you. This nifty feature makes for some exciting videos and photos, with the current selection including hearts, robots and arrows.
