New “Shake to Report” Whatsapp Feature for Android Users

WhatsApp has been testing quite a number of new features, and there are no signs that the popular IM will stop doing this anytime soon. Here are some of them which are expected to be released to Android device users at some point.

WhatsApp

Let's kick off with this new WhatsApp option, which if available, will enable android users unblock a contact and send a message simply by tapping and holding it(the option). Users should also expect the already-available invite link in iOS—which can be used to invite people to a group chat—to be added in the Android version of WhatsApp.

Also on the list is this new “shake to report” feature. Once it is enabled, you only need to shake your Android smartphone to contact WhatsApp if you want to report issues with the app.

We previously talked about the admin super power group features for WhatsApp which enables chat admins to modify subject and group info, add restrictions, send messages to participants and more.

Remember, these features are currently in beta testing stage, and unfortunately, not all of them will make it to the regular WhatsApp app.

Samsung Email app has just passed 100 million downloads on the Play Store

Samsung Email recently clocked and passed 100 million downloads on Google Play Store which is something to boast about. The app is adapted only for Samsung devices running Android 7.0 Nougat, and most of the phones already have it pre-installed, yet the number of hits are still counting.


As you might expect, Samsung Email does what email apps usually do. It also supports POP3, IMAP, and Exchange ActiveSync so that all of your emails can be used in a single app. Like most of you, I just use Gmail even when I get a Samsung phone, but I'm sure that some folks enjoy Samsung's own app more. It's worth noting that this 100 million downloads figure is not representative of any sorts of sales figures, as it was only added to the Play Store back in January of this year.

Though only Samsung phones can install it and you've already got it installed if you do have a Samsung Phone.

iPhone Xc Concept — a Cheaper, Colorful and Plastic Version of iPhone X




But what if the Californian-based OEM decides to old school with a new colorful version of the iPhone X, which will be codenamed 'iPhone Xc'? Well, this is just an imagination because I don't see Apple making a plastic phone in 2018, but it will look stunning if it's actually realized.

This new concept was masterminded by designer Martin Hajek, who is known for creating great-looking Apple concepts. The iPhone Xc sports the same gloss plastic finish with neon colors just like the 5c, but with the complete iPhone X styling: FullView display, the notch, etc.
