Tinder Will Have Video Calls In The App

The Tinder said on Tuesday (5) the release of video calls an individual in your application this year. The disclosure was made in the balance sheet of Match Group, the company’s parent company. Few details have been released, but this will be a major release by Tinder.

Video chats are much more difficult to control than text messages. This makes the environment more prone to abuse, especially considering that Tinder has millions of users around the world. Of course, the company is probably preparing new security measures for its new feature. Users will also have to get used to the novelty of video chatting, not just text.

The Match Group also provided updates on the performance of its brands during the Covid-19 pandemic, with most of the world quarantined or lockdown, preventing real encounters. According to the company, Tinder reached its largest number of swipes (the movement of sliding your finger to like or reject someone) in history.

Female users under the age of 30 also increased their number of swipes by 37% in April, compared to the last week of February. There was a 27% increase in the daily number of messages sent on all the company’s products (OkCupid, Match.com, and Hinge) in April, compared to February – a figure that was 35% higher for users under 30 years old.

However, the Match Group noted a decline in the number of users making their first payment between February and March, although the total number is higher than that recorded in 2019. But the recovery was rapid, and the number of subscribers returned to normal between March and April.

“As the quarantines drag on, we saw some impact on young male users, while there was some recovery in the group over 30,” said the company.

The pandemic’s impact on dating apps should be seen later this year, although companies are struggling to keep users active with changes to their products. If the isolation lasts longer, people may save apps for when they can finally meet in person.

“This period of isolation would have been much more difficult for single people – who have no other means of getting to know and connect, like bars and shows – if it weren’t for our products,” concludes the Match Group.

YouTube Will Use AI to Automatically Determine Age Limits of Videos

Yes, it is said that YouTube plans to use Artificial Intelligence to detect and determine the age limit of a video. Later machine learning technology will help AI to find out what content is displayed in a video.

Based on the recognition of YouTube, later the AI ​​technology will be implemented on their main site so that later users who want to view videos that have age restrictions will immediately be taken to the sign in page to verify their age and determine whether the video can be watched or not because of insufficient age. .

“This helps us ensure that no matter where the video is found, it can only be watched by viewers of an adequate age,” said YouTube as quoted from the Ubergizmo website.

The presence of this feature is known to be caused by a problem that had occurred on YouTube, where there were several conspiracies and disturbing videos that actually exist on YouTube Kids which is actually a special platform for children with safe content.

This bug on Instagram allows hackers to take over your smartphone

Recently, researchers from Check Point Security have found a dangerous bug in the Instagram application where this bug can be used by hackers to take over the victim’s smartphone.

Yes, not just taking over the Instagram account, this bug is known to allow hackers to take over the user’s smartphone and it is possible that the victim’s smartphone will be planted by even more dangerous malware.

To take advantage of this bug, the hacker will first send a photo containing malware code to the victim via Direct Messages. Only with that, the smartphone of Instagram users can be taken over.

This is because the Instagram application itself initially has access to the user’s smartphone so that if the Instagram application is hacked, the user’s smartphone can also be hacked.

As a result of the discovery of this bug, the head researcher from Check Point, Yaniv Balmas, appealed to all smartphone users to be more careful in giving permission to the applications they install, be it trusted applications such as Instagram.

“People should pay more attention to every permission an application has. Most people don’t care about the access request message and immediately press the yes button. But that is the start of the cyber attack process,” said Yaniv Balmas as dictated by Ubergizmo.

Twitter Starts Testing Voice Messages Feature in DM

Alex said that later this feature could allow users to send audio messages with a duration of up to 20 seconds via Direct Messages. The reason is that previously users could only send text and images
