WhatsApp mute chat forever because it’s Facebook all over again

WhatsApp added an option to chats today that allows the user to mute said chat forever. The Facebook-owned app and ecosystem previously only allowed a chat to be muted for 8 hours, 1 week, or 1 year. This was fine, sure, but what if you wanted to stay in a chat and never, ever hear a notification from the chat ever, ever again? Now that's possible, if you dare.

ClipDrop AR Copy Paste is now available for a price

We now live in a world that revolves around digital objects but we still naturally have to deal with physical ones. Bridging the two have never been easy nor seamless but a lot of technologies, like augmented reality or AR, try to narrow the gap.

Xbox touch controls make mobile cloud gaming feel more natural

Xbox touch controls make mobile cloud gaming feel more natural

Microsoft is really pushing its Xbox game streaming, both with "local" Remote Play as well as cloud gaming via Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, previously known as Project xCloud. But while the likes of Google's Stadia initially aimed from TVs via the Chromecast, Xbox cloud gaming prioritized a more mobile experience. Gaming on smartphones, however, doesn't always have the same feel, especially when there are no physical controllers available. That's why Xbox is now rolling out its new Touch Controls to improve its cloud game streaming experience with a twist.

Huawei Petal Search and Docs take on Google and Microsoft

Huawei Petal Search and Docs take on Google and Microsoft

It is Huawei's big day and, as expected, it announced a slew of products to show the world it can still make it big. More than just hardware, however, the company also announced apps and services that practically boast of its independence from companies that it will no longer be able to do business with as per the US' rules. It remains to be seen, however, if Petal Search, Petal Maps, and Huawei Docs will be able to gather enough traction both from users and partners to stay in service for long.

Lyft just made it much easier to split your ride fee with friends

If you're using Lyft, there's a good chance you're catching a ride with friends. Until now, splitting the fare typically involved one person paying for the trip and the other people reimbursing them with their share of the fee, a time-consuming and somewhat convoluted method.

After a lot of talk, Google Play Music’s day of reckoning is here

It's been a long time coming, but it looks like the end may finally be here for Google Play Music. Google, of course, has been warning us about this impending sunset for a long time now, as its plan has been to shut down Google Play Music ever since it revamped YouTube Music into its primary music streaming service. Google has been taking incremental steps to kill of Google Play Music for good, but now it seems the day has finally arrived - for some users, at least.

Microsoft really wants PWAs to populate its app store

Microsoft really wants PWAs to populate its app store

Microsoft has had very little luck growing its own app store, at least outside of the Xbox games store. The first iteration for Windows 8 was a complete mess and while things have improved over the years, it still pales in comparison to other app stores, even with its compatibility layer to support win32 software. Its latest attempt seems to focus around the latest breed of web apps known as Progressive Web Apps, and it is trying to woo PWA developers to put their apps on the Microsoft Store instead of elsewhere.

Photoshop, Illustrator on iPad gets live streaming feature

Photoshop, Illustrator on iPad gets live streaming feature

For years, it seemed that Adobe was mostly ignoring the rising popularity of Apple's iPads as creativity tools even when the first iPad Pros came out. Its apps for the large slates paled in comparison to its popular desktop software and has allowed competitors like Procreate to become household names in that market. It is slowly but surely trying to make up for lost time by adding what has become a rather popular feature among digital artists, the ability to stream their work to an online audience.
