The longer this crisis lasts, the higher the risk for small businesses and livelihoods. of their owners and employees, “said Facebook vice president of operations Sheryl Sandberg in a note.

Facebook should open the call for companies to apply for benefits in the coming weeks. For the time being, the official website of the program only offers the option of providing an email address to obtain updates on the initiative.

The social network also provided access to a resource center for small companies (Business Hub) with management tips during the crisis scenario. According to Sheryl Sandberg, the company is working on new virtual training on the e-learning platform Blueprint.

Another measure announced by Facebook is the payment of bonuses in the amount of US $ 1,000 to company employees. It is estimated that the company has approximately 45 thousand direct employees.

The measures announced by the social network accompany other series of initiatives adopted by technology companies to support employees and small businesses during the crisis of the new coronavirus.

WhatsApp Presents Automatically Deleting Messages Feature

WhatsApp has now become one of the most popular online messaging applications and is used by many people. This makes WhatsApp even more serious about bringing new features to its users.

After previously presenting various interesting features such as Dark Mode and permanent mute chat, now WhatsApp is back with a new feature that is no less useful, namely automatic message deletion or called ‘Disappearing Message’.

WhatsApp Presents Automatically Deleting Messages Feature

It is known that this feature allows WhatsApp users to delete certain messages automatically within a pre-selected time frame. This is of course useful for ‘erasing traces’ when users send messages to certain people

Currently, this feature can still be used to delete messages after the message has been sent for 7 days. But in the future, users may choose a shorter time, such as 1 day or 1 hour after the message is sent.

In addition, WhatsApp also informed us that there are limitations to this feature. Where this feature can only work if the user and the recipient of the message both activate the ‘Disappearing Message’ feature. If one user does not activate this feature, this feature will not work.

Then messages that are deleted automatically are not necessarily completely deleted from WhatsApp. Yes, the article still appears if the recipient of the message is forwarding it to another user.

WhatsApp Web Will Get Video Call and Voice Capabilities Soon

WhatsApp web can do many things like the mobile version. Instant messaging services can send and receive messages, photos, videos, and documents.

For the most part, the WhatsApp web can perform quite well as a Messenger service. However, one downside of this platform is the lack of voice and video call support.

However, everything changed immediately. According to a report from WABetaInfo, they found some evidence that suggests WhatsApp Web will soon introduce video and voice calling capabilities.

Basically, the presence of video and voice calls is not too surprising. In fact, the surprising thing is that it has taken time so far to introduce capabilities, as quoted from Ubergizmo, Thursday (22/10/2020).

WhatsApp is a messaging service owned by Facebook. Well, the Facebook Messenger service already offers a similar feature on the desktop along with other messaging clients.

So, it’s more of a matter of when than whether the feature will come to WhatsApp Web. In today’s video conferencing era when it comes to working and school, video call and voice features are needed as an alternative.

Apple has recently officially announced the presence of its newest smartphone, the iPhone 12 Series, which comes with a number of updates. But the main thing that Apple emphasizes on the iPhone 12 is support for 5G networks.

Yes, Apple is very pleased that they have finally been able to bring 5G support to its iPhone where other smartphone manufacturers have actually started releasing 5G smartphones from the end of 2019.

Despite having to sacrifice a screen that still doesn’t have a 120Hz refresh rate, Apple is apparently quite proud of their iPhone 12 that it says the word ‘5G’ too often.

Recently, a Twitter user by the name of OnlyTechAE has uploaded a video showing a cut of a presentation at the Apple Event on October 14, 2020 yesterday where Apple officials said the word ‘5G’.

The video also shows how many words ‘5G’ was spoken in the presentation. Where these words were spoken by Apple officials to their own CEO, Tim Cook.

One Twitter user also took the time to count how many words ‘5G’ were spoken in the presentation. As a result, there were 68 mentions of the word ‘5G’ in the presentation. This certainly makes a lot of laughs seeing how Apple is very proud of 5G.
