- A new version of Skype has come out for Mac. 7.10 – the latest available assembly – has helped take care of video call errors, rid the app of occasional flickering and video signal loss. The improved video quality is a very significant update that will put a smile on quite a few faces. The contact list has also changed its appearance; nevertheless, some problems with the phone number display remain. The firm claims that they are already on it.
- Spray is a new local messaging app. The product may become popular because it isn’t mainstream and it isn’t planning on blowing everybody away with standard texting options. Instead, the creators of the hyperlocal communication app position the product as an app that will enable you to communicate with people who are in a particular area. The standout feature of the app is its range. Spray lets you communicate with people who are within a 300-yard radius from your device. To contact one another you both need to have the app installed on your devices: quick, convenient, and a lot like Yik Yak.
- WeChat will allow users to trade in securities. In more detail, information has been circuiting online that the new messenger-based platform will be fitted with the facial recognition technology, and you’ll need a photo if you plan on opening up an account. It still isn’t too clear how the point-of-sale will be integrated in the messaging app, but the presence of the idea is truly a breakthrough for the entire Asian market, which is advancing in communication technologies by leaps and bounds as it is.
- Save Snapchat for last. This year the app is planning to earn $50 million. A bold statement for a company that started making money only a few months ago and still hasn’t got a Financial Director. It is expected that long-term updates, such as “Best friends” and “Live stories”, will help the app break the bank, because next year business analytics set the bar to 200 million in profits. The next financial director, whomever he may be, has his work cut out for him.
