How to send spam calls straight to voicemail with Google’s phone app

TwitterFacebook

Google just gave us another good reason to use its phone app: better protection from spam callers. 

The company’s phone app for Android has a new setting that can automatically detect spam calls and send them straight to voicemail so your phone never even rings.

The app now has a “filter suspected spam call” option in its settings. When enabled, suspected spam calls will be routed straight to your phone’s voicemail. Your phone won’t ring, and you won’t get a missed call notification.

If the caller does leave a voicemail, you also won’t get a notification, though you’ll have the ability to view missed calls and voicemails that have been “filtered.” Read more…

Snapchat lenses just got a lot better, if you have an iPhone X

TwitterFacebook

Attention iPhone X owners: Snapchat is finally making good on its promise to make its augmented reality selfie lenses better.

Today, the company is officially launching a new lineup of lenses that’ve been optimized for the iPhone X’s front-facing TrueDepth camera.

First previewed last fall during Apple’s iPhone X launch event, Snap specially designed the lenses to take advantage of the face-tracking abilities of the iPhone X’s TrueDepth camera. What this means for you, a selfie-obsessed Snapchat user, is that the new lenses will be better able to “stick” to your face, making them look slightly more realistic (or, as “realistic” as a brightly-colored mask can look, anyway).

Finally, tech’s elite speak out against Silicon Valley’s unchecked power

TwitterFacebook

They helped create Facebook, Google, and other companies who claim to bring the world together. But on Monday evening, these people gathered to discuss how tech products are tearing us apart. 

“Facebook created a business model that essentially made people who believe [conspiracy theories] more valuable,” said Roger McNamee, an early advisor to Mark Zuckerberg, speaking at an event at The New School in New York City titled “The Dark Side of Design: A Conversation About Addictive Technology. “It was in [Facebook’s] interest to appeal to fear and anger.”

McNamee is one of the founders of the Center for Humane Technology, a new coalition of tech creators dedicated to studying the effects of technology. This week, the group announced a partnership with nonprofit media watchdog group Common Sense Media to launch an ad campaign on tech addiction.  Read more…

Facebook’s Workplace is turning into a serious Slack competitor

TwitterFacebook

Facebook may be the last company you’d ever expect to make software for serious businesses, but the social network is quickly proving the haters wrong.

A year after officially launching Workplace, the business-focused version of Facebook, the service now counts more than 30,000 businesses and organizations using the software, Facebook announced Thursday. 

That group, more than double what Workplace claimed six months ago, includes names like Starbucks, Spotify, Lyft, and Walmart.

Though not as huge as some of its biggest competitors — less than a year in Microsoft Teams counts more than 125,000 organizations — the growth is impressive, considering that it wasn’t that long ago that the idea of Facebook launching professional software seemed like more of a joke than anything else.

Let's all take a deep breath and stop freaking out about Facebook's bots 'inventing' a new language

TwitterFacebook

Tesla CEO Elon Musk made headlines last week when he tweeted about his frustrations that Mark Zuckerberg, ever the optimist, doesn’t fully understand the potential danger posed by artificial intelligence. 

So when media outlets began breathlessly re-reporting a weeks-old story that Facebook’s AI-trained chatbots “invented” their own language, it’s not surprising the story caught more attention than it did the first time around.

Understandable, perhaps, but it’s exactly the wrong thing to be focusing on. The fact that Facebook’s bots “invented” a new way to communicate wasn’t even the most shocking part of the research to begin with. Read more…

Google is using your entire search history to create a personalized news feed

TwitterFacebook

Google, perhaps more than any other tech giant, knows an astonishing amount about you. 

Your search history alone could be enough to paint a surprisingly vivid portrait of everything, from your current hobbies to your deepest darkest secrets . Not to mention everything you’ve ever done in Google’s many other services, like YouTube and Maps. 

Now, Google is taking everything it’s learned about you (and everything it’s guessed about you) and is using it to create a personalized feed. The feed will appear alongside search on Google’s apps and, eventually, in your browser and other platforms.

'Pokémon GO' celebrates Easter with egg-cellent bonuses

TwitterFacebook

Easter is just around the corner and Pokémon GO is celebrating with a limited-time Eggstravaganza.

No, you don’t get any free eggs, but between April 13 to April 20 there will be double XP as well as some generous egg-related bonuses. 

Throughout the week, your 2 km eggs will have a chance to hatch more than just the low-tier Pokémon they currently do. When the eggs hatch, they’ll give you more candy than before. Finally, lucky eggs will be 50% off in the in-game store, and they’ll give you 4x XP.

Unfortunately, Niantic Labs didn’t share exactly which Pokémon can be hatched from 2 km eggs during the Eggstravaganza, but hopefully there are some Exeggutors, Togepis, and Chanseys.  Read more…

Donald Trump-inspired app counts how often men interrupt women

TwitterFacebook

Tired of being interrupted? A new app claims it may be able to help.

Called Woman Interrupted, the app uses your smartphone’s microphone to analyze conversations and track how many times men interrupt women in a given conversation. 

Created by Brazilian ad agency BETC to coincide with International Women’s Day, the app’s creators say Woman Interrupted was inspired in part by the first presidential debate when Donald Trump repeatedly interrupted Hillary Clinton. 

The app, which is available for both iOS and Android, uses your smartphone’s microphone to track conversations and determine the number of interruptions in a given conversation.  Read more…

Yelp will now show you which businesses have gender inclusive restrooms

TwitterFacebook

Yelp will soon be able to tell you about a new aspect of restaurants and businesses that is often overlooked: whether its restrooms are gender inclusive.

The company is rolling out a new feature that will identify businesses that have “gender-neutral restrooms,” similar to how it identifies establishments that are wheelchair accessible or accept credit cards. 

With the update, Yelp will officially add “gender-neutral restroom” to its list of business attributes, which appear on a business’ page, alongside their hours, reviews and other details. Yelp says it defines these restrooms as those that are “accessible to persons of any gender and are a locking, single-stall bathroom.” Read more…

Love Pocket? Mozilla just bought the app to fix its mobile problem.

Mozilla is trying to get back into mobile. 

The company acquired Read It Later, the developer of bookmarking app Pocket, in what Mozilla called its “first strategic acquisition.” 

Terms of the deal were not disclosed but both companies said Pocket would continue to operate as an independent subsidiary of Mozilla, which makes the Firefox web browser.  

For Mozilla, the acquisition could help give the company something of a fresh start in mobile. Mozilla killed what was left of its Firefox OS earlier this year. Launched in 2013, the ill-fated operating system failed to gain traction despite the release of the company’s budget phonesRead more…

You might want to rethink what you're 'liking' on Facebook now

TwitterFacebook

Facebook’s reactions just turned one and the company is finally revealing how its revamped like button impacts your News Feed.

It turns out the company weighs reactions — love, haha, wow, sad and angry — over “likes” in determining what content to surface in your News Feed. 

“Over the past year we’ve found that if people leave a Reaction on a post, it is an even stronger signal that they’d want to see that type of post than if they left a Like on the post,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. “So we are updating News Feed to weigh reactions a little more than Likes when taking into account how relevant the story is to each person.” Read more…

You can now browse Pinterest via your smartphone camera.

Pinterest introduced a new feature called Lens, which allows users to search for Pins with their smartphone camera.

Available “in the coming weeks” for iOS and Android (in beta), the feature lets you snap photos of objects you come across in the real world and browse Pinterest for related topics based on them. You don’t even have to tell the service what it’s a picture of.

First previewed last summer, Lens uses computer vision and machine learning “to understand the objects you’re looking at and how they could be useful to you,” the company saysRead more…

As with other “Our Stories,” the content will be curated by Snapchat’s editorial team and be live in the app for 24 hours. To go with the Our Story, Snapchat has added a set of Black History Month-themed geolfilters meant to encourage users to talk about their backgrounds and what makes them proud. Read more…

Apple's iOS 10.3 brings cricket support for Siri and a way to find your lost AirPods

The latest iOS 10 beta update, 10.3, is sure to bring cheer for Indian users as Siri, Apple’s digital assistant, will now be offering cricket scores, stats and trivia.  

The new feature makes Apple’s intent in its fastest-growing market very clear. India is a cricket-crazy nation and the demand for such content is huge. However, Apple is actually playing catch-up with Google Now which added cricket support three years ago. 

Apple said in a statement that Siri will be pulling in information from International Cricket Council (ICC) tournaments and the wildly popular Indian Premier League (IPL). Users can ask for team rankings, live scores, individual player records, tour itinerary and other general match information. Queries can be as specific as: Show me Virat Kohli stats or as basic as when is the next cricket match?  Read more…

Reports of a glitch around Trump's Twitter account @POTUS are not true

The people are revolting. Donald Trump took the oath of office Friday and in part with that transition he has taken over the @POTUS account. 

Without any doing of your own, Twitter has made it so that if you followed @POTUS under Obama you’re automatically following his now archived account at @POTUS44 in addition to the @POTUS account under Trump. That shouldn’t come at a surprise — if you read Mashable or The White House’s official blog earlier this week.

But if you weren’t prepping for the Twitter transition, you might have been a little put off seeing tweets from Trump as @POTUS in the timeline. Even more off-putting, Twitter users are reporting that even if they weren’t following the account, Twitter has made it so.  Read more…

Big changes are headed for Snapchat — again.

The company is set to roll out a major redesign of its app in the coming days, Snapchat confirmed Thursday. The new look, which is being previewed to the company’s beta testers on Android now, adds a search bar, new navigation and a global live story that will feature snaps from all over the world.

The new look is much more polished than previous versions of the app and the search bar makes content much easier to find. It sits at the top of the chat, camera and Stories sections of the app.

There, you can search for friends and get shortcuts to other parts of the app. Finding a friend’s name brings up a one-on-one chat. Read more…
