Instagram update to finally bring multiple account feature to Android

Instagram has been flirting with multiple account support and now that is finally starting to become real to more and more users. A while back, the app got multiple account support for some users, but it was rapidly removed. Now the feature is back and it is here to stay.

 

Insta

 

 

Instagram announced today via a post that the new feature is officially in full effect. In order to get it, you will need the v7.15 update. The multiple account feature is beautifully involved into the app. You are able to add a new account from the settings menu and in order to switch between existing accounts all you have to do is tap the drop-down menu on your profile page.

Your profile photo will appear throughout the app so that you know which account you are using at any given time. This change will basically make your life easier by letting you switch between a personal and a professional account at any given time.

 

You can download the Instagram app from the Google Play Store widget below. Will this new feature help you in any way? Let us know in the comment section below!

Twitter reportedly to increase character limit to 10K

Twitter may proceed to increase its character limit per tweet from 140 letters to 10k! Whenever you will feel like making a ranty post on the social media platform, you will be able to do so. No more short sentences full of meaning and no more getting to the point in 5 to 10 words.

There are no specifics out yet, but Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey tweeted a big screenshot of text explaining the reasons behind this increase in character limit. Additional reports suggest that Twitter itself will collapse your ranty post to 140 characters and you would have to tap to view it all. This change is expected to go in place around March, so there is still some waiting to be done until then.

If you love photography, but you don’t want to use professional cameras all the time, you can get into the Creative Cloud Photography plan, where you will get Photoshop and Lightroom, which are some of the most powerful editing tools on the market. This feature allows users to open and edit photos on their mobile devices and send them to the desktop version of the Adobe software, where they can refine their compositions even more.

Facebook Messenger update – send friends your location via messages

Facebook Messenger is updated again today and it is getting something interesting (read easier to stalk) for most of us. Unlike its Facebook app, the Messenger is actually getting changed for the better and the most recent change is the feature of allowing users to send a location to friends via messages. The thing is, it does not have to be the location you’re at, it can be any location.

 

Messenger

 

Using location on Messenger is still optional and this does not change how your location data is used by the app. Location sharing is bound to appear in the menu with the usual add-ons. When you tap on it you will be able to choose to share your location or other places nearby.

[App of the day] Touchless Chat allows you to send messages on popular messaging applications such as Facebook, WhatsApp and Viber by using your voice

Some developers love the virtual world and believe so much in creating the perfect experience that they strive to cultivate the perfect app. Touchless Chat could be such a thing, especially since it will push your phone to new limits. The app uses Google Now command integration as well as your voice in order to help you interact better via your device. You can thus interact via voice commands when it comes to sending messages to contacts. This way you can initiate conversations through your voice, without having to type.

 

Touchless chat

 

Touchless Chat requires quite a few permissions in order to work, including notification access, device administrator, and accessibility. Just say “thank you” you won’t need root access. The app lets users communicate with contacts from different widgets or through Google now and they can reply to incoming messages too by allowing you to choose a preferred app for each contact as well as a language to use when talking to them and a nickname to help you recognize them easier.

The app supports Hangouts, SMS, WhatsApp, Viber, Facebook Messenger, Telegram, Skype and other messaging applications. It also presents automated Smart Repliers that reads messages and sends specific replies when you are busy.

Touchless Chat is free to try but it will show a link to the app on every message you send. You can get rid of that if you make an in-app purchase that starts at $2 but that may go up as time goes by.

[App of the day!] Periscope – Twitter’s live streaming app – is finally live for Android users

Almost two weeks have passed since Meerkat got out of beta stage and fully released to Android devices all over the world and its fiercest (and more popular) competition Periscope finally managed to get an Android version as well. It’s been months since everyone on Twitter who also owned an iPhone could use this app, but now equality was reestablished in the social media world. Twitter’s live video streams made via phone can be viewed and made with Android devices as well.

 

Periscope

 

You can download it on your phone and tablet, depending on your Android toy of choice. This app will plug into your Twitter account even if it has its own client and when you start a stream it activates the default public mode which means everyone on periscope will be able to see you or what you are filming. You can also link your stream to Twitter or send private links to certain people.

 

Periscope itself is based on live streams and your videos can be replayed for 24 hours after they were broadcasted. After 24 hours they are automatically deleted, but you can delete them yourself beforehand if you want.
