It is official fellas. OnePlus as promised updated their Google Now feature into Google Assistant. Fans are excited by the new assistant loaded on their OnePlus smartphones.

OnePlus CEO Carl Pei recently uploaded a screenshot of Google Assistant on his twitter account quoting – “Google Assistant, finally! 😊”. No wonder everyone or at least OnePlus fans are eagerly waiting for the update to roll out soon as Google already announced that Google Assistant will empower all Android Marshmallow and Nougat smartphones. We at Droidbeat are also thrilled to see the new update as it is the top notch piece of programming from Google till date.

Google Assistant is far better in functionality from its predecessor Google Now. Google Now was a great search UI where users can search for their favorite games or ask weather report on the go. Google Assistant on that extent took a giant leap and does much more than you can think of.

For instance, you can ask for a joke to crack or ask for a quote or search some random facts or even play games with the computer generated bot which is almost like interacting with a human self. Besides all these, Google Assistant can book a restaurant table or tag a reminder in your calendar app or send messages and call one of your friends from your contact book.

The sole concept of Google Assistant is to have a 24*7 assistant inside your pocket which you can interact, ask, interact and respond as you would in the real life. Google Assistant is the next level of UI with a combination of millions of possibilities users can do as they want.

Do all the nitty gritty with Google Assistant and let us know how do you feel about it.

Facebook


“Are you on Facebook?” Well! We are. Facebook was founded in 2004 by young Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg and fellow students. Facebook was originated from a notorious program “Facemash” which was compared to Hot or Not website where two photos of two different girls were displayed and users have to choose which one is hotter.

At first, Facebook was mainly designed for Harvard students which were later expanded to other regions as the active users increased day by day. According to the recent data, Facebook crossed more than 1 Billion active users per month in the estimate which is an astounding rate for any social network.

During initial days, the profile of Facebook was limited as it only offered basic information of an individual. Now users can do video chat or voice calls, play games with friends online, share videos or even go Live without any hassle. “Like” button was the first tab of Facebook which is meant to like anyone’s post if you liked the content. Now few more emoticons are added (like happy, sad, wow, angry and love), to let users reply according to their mood. Comment on your friend’s post, tag your other friends, share the post if you like and poke someone are some other features built in the system. Facebook is much more than social network now, it is a digital way to connect to your loved ones.

In 2016, Twitter holds the record of over 319 Million monthly active users. Twitter was first called as “twttr” and was designed to send SMS and communicate with small group.

If you are a normal user, just tweet something more relevant or about a current event and if some other group of people or individual follow the hashtag then within few moments it becomes the most trending tweets of the day.

A tweet consists of only 140 characters which is the only downside of the brand but people can share photos, gifs or video within a tweet to make more impressive stories.

Making profile is as easy as any other social networking websites. Sign up with your existing email id or mobile number and you are good to go.

Twitter allows you to add your friends through “Follow” tab. Once followed you can see their tweets whenever they post it online. If you don’t want to follow a certain group or member just unfollow them and you won’t get any annoying tweets from them.

Whatsapp is one of the most famous and popular messaging app with the integration of almost all the mobile operating system like iOS, Android, Windows, Bada, Blackberry, Symbian and what not. If you are Nokia users and have an old Nokia inside your cupboard you know what we are saying.

Whatsapp used to be as simple as just a singular app meant for messaging your friends with no advanced features included built-in. Now, Whatsapp offers a large variety of features like Voice Call, Video Call, Group Chat, Sharing Images, Videos, GIFs or files and much more. Just a few days ago, Whatsapp recently introduced an instant status uploading features which resembles pretty much like Snapchat and Instagram where your status will get erased after 24 hours of your upload.

Facebook Messenger

It also includes features like Video Calling or Voice Calling which is clear (varies upon on your connection). One great feature for the Android user is floating chat head which pops up when someone sends you the message.

WeChat


WeChat is the most popular messaging app in China with over 700 million active users worldwide. WeChat has one of the huge collection of stickers right now in the market. WeChat offers all the usual features like chats, group chats, photo sharing, voice calls and video calls which are perfect and consistent but WeChat offers some great extra features which no one provides i.e. “Friend Radar”, “Shake” and “People Nearby”.

“Friend Radar” and “People Nearby” shows the people according to your Geo location with the only difference is that the former shows your friends near your radar and later shows Unknown people using WeChat, which is quite interesting, Umm!

“Shake” on the other hand is quite a different approach, where user shakes their respective phone and WeChat lookup for other people on their server who are Shaking simultaneously and once the Shake is matched it shows the user along with the distance they are far away.

Besides all these WeChat also provide an extra attribute called “Moments” where every WeChat user has their own piece of profile where users can upload their photos and share among their friends.

Skype


Skype used to be the ultimate website and app for Video calling and call conferencing. Before the inception of other messaging apps, Skype was the first to provide Video/Voice calling feature. From the very beginning Skype calling was free between other Skype users but if anyone had to call over a landline or mobile phone they can do it over but with a minimal amount introduced by the company. Now, users can send Images, Videos, Gifs and many more just like any other messaging apps.

Snapchat


One of the most trending messaging app right around, Snaps are what people doing. Going for a trip, on vacation, on event or anywhere users Snaps their event on the go and post it online. Snapchat has changed the way of instant messaging to a whole new level. It is integrated with tons of live filters where people can record their Snaps according to their mood or even click the selfie and send over to their friends. If you haven’t tried Snapping, then go and do it.

Allo


2016 was the year where a whole new level of messaging was introduced by Google. Allo is a smart instant messaging app with new features like talking with bots where you can talk with computer generated UI aka bots and have a conversation with it. You can ask any question or any relevant node and Allo will answer it back or give a solution in the way of GUI interface where people can understand what is it about. In between the chats just ask for the nearest metro station with @Google tag and Google will answer the question with a proper answer without leaving the app and searching elsewhere. With the introduction of bots, Allo is much smarter and much informative. Allo also features all usual ways of messaging like sharing images, videos, geolocation or voice messages. Haven’t tried Allo, go check it out.

Viber


Another great messaging app with the main focus on calling feature. Viber is just like any other messaging apps with abilities like group chat, voice call, video call bind with games and public chat where tons of social media icons and faces are established inside the system where any random users can post anything and get the conversation started. Just follow your favorite figure in Discover tab and you are good to go. Besides, that it offers all the traditional feature of Sticker market with some free and paid stickers for your choice.

Hangout
 
Google Hangout is popular mostly among Google users. If you own a Google account then all you need to get started is log in with your Google account and chat among all your Google synced account inside it. Before Allo, Hangout used to be the standalone messaging app for the Google where people can make voice calls or do video conferencing throughout any corner of the world.

Telegram


Telegram is just like Whatsapp with the only thing it’s not a Whatsapp brother. Don’t laugh out loud. The UI is almost same as Whatsapp with little more extra features added. The best thing about Telegram is you can self-destruct your post i.e. after your friends see your post it will disappear from their timeline isn’t that great. Also, it is fast, reliable, secure and can transfer a huge amount of file on the go in between any platform. Telegram features a great collection of stickers with an extra feature like Start Secret Chat. The only thing it lacks is the calling feature which would make it a complete package.

The final wait is over people. Behold the Samsung Galaxy S8. A proper leaked image of Samsung Galaxy S8 is released by the famous professional leaker, Evan Blass, as he tweeted the one and only Samsung Galaxy S8 on his profile post.


From the leaked image and video(below), we can clearly see that the physical home button from the front is removed and placed to back side near the rear camera. Samsung has opted for more bezel-less design this year with round edges from the previous iteration of Galaxy brand.

Samsung Galaxy S8 is the most anticipated smartphone of the year and the leak images are more of the play this time around. Certainly, Samsung climbed back to the top of the list after the leaked image, withdrawing neck to neck competition with other rivals such as Nokia and LG.


Turnaround at MWC

MWC used to be the place where Samsung used to announce its flagship phones from past 3 years but this year they played a different dice and announced that they will reveal their new flagship on their Unpacked event in NYC later this month on 29th March 2017.
