Official! WhatsApp Users Can No Longer Take Screenshots of Profile Photos

In February 2024, WhatsApp tested a new privacy feature in the beta version to help protect user profile photos from criminal acts.

Now this feature has been officially rolled out to the regular version of WhatsApp, namely the ability to prevent users from taking screenshots or screenshots of profile photos.

This will provide better security for users and greater control over who can access their content.

In beta testing, attempts to take a screenshot would give a black screen along with the words ‘unable to take screenshot due to app restrictions.

Now on the stable version of WhatsApp, users who want to make this effort will get the same message.

When TechViral tries to take a screenshot of the profile photo, WhatsApp does not display a black screen but still gives a pop-up saying ‘This application does not allow screenshots’

We also noted that while we couldn’t screenshot individual profile pictures, when we tried to take a profile picture in a group chat, WhatsApp still allowed it to be taken. However, to take profile photos of each member of the WhatsApp group, permission is not given.

While this feature was launched, there is no further detailed information such as whether this feature is optional or not so there is no way to disable it if users still allow other people to take screenshots of their profile picture.

This is not the first feature to help protect user privacy on WhatsApp, previously there were options such as changing profile photo privacy settings, one-view media, and status privacy settings.

However, this is a step forward in helping provide users with a more secure messaging app, and it’s likely that more users will start seeing this feature on their devices in the coming weeks.

Instagram: A Visual Powerhouse Shaping the Social Media Landscape

From its humble beginnings as a photo-sharing app in 2010, Instagram has transformed into a global phenomenon, shaping the way we connect, consume information, and even do business. With over 2 billion monthly active users, it’s become a visual powerhouse impacting individuals, businesses, and culture at large. Let’s delve into the world of Instagram and explore its multifaceted influence.

A Shift in Social Sharing:

Instagram revolutionized social media by prioritizing visuals over text. Images and videos became the primary language, fostering a more immediate and engaging platform. This visual storytelling resonated deeply with users, leading to a shift from text-heavy platforms like Facebook. The rise of Instagram stories further fueled this trend, offering fleeting glimpses into daily lives and fostering fleeting connections.

The Rise of Influencers and Content Creators:

Instagram empowered individuals to become content creators, building communities and even turning their passions into professions. Influencers emerged, specializing in various niches like fashion, travel, food, and fitness. Brands saw the potential of influencer marketing, collaborating with these digital tastemakers to reach targeted audiences in an authentic way. This democratization of content creation fostered diverse voices and perspectives, shaping trends and cultural conversations.

A Boon for Businesses:

Instagram became a crucial marketing tool for businesses of all sizes. From showcasing products and services to interacting with customers directly, it offered a platform for building brand awareness and fostering loyalty. The introduction of shoppable posts and features like Instagram Live further facilitated commerce, blurring the lines between social media and online shopping.

Evolving Trends and Challenges:

As with any social media platform, Instagram faces challenges like misinformation, unrealistic beauty standards, and mental health concerns. The platform is continually evolving, introducing features like fact-checking and content moderation tools to address these issues. Additionally, the rise of short-form video platforms like TikTok poses competition, pushing Instagram to adapt and innovate to retain its user base.

Looking Ahead:

Instagram’s future seems bright. The platform continues to innovate, introducing new features like Reels and augmented reality filters to keep users engaged. With its focus on visual storytelling and community building, Instagram is likely to remain a major player in the social media landscape, shaping how we connect and engage with the world around us.

Here are some additional points to consider:

  • The impact of Instagram on mental health, particularly among young users, is a growing concern.
  • The platform’s algorithms and content moderation practices are constantly debated, with concerns about transparency and bias.
  • The increasing focus on video content reflects broader trends in social media consumption.
  • Despite challenges, Instagram continues to offer unique opportunities for individuals and businesses alike.

Instagram’s journey from a photo-sharing app to a global phenomenon is a testament to its ability to connect with users through powerful visuals and foster dynamic communities. As it continues to evolve, Instagram will undoubtedly influence our social interactions, cultural trends, and even the way we do business in the years to come.

As a result of layoffs, Google will eliminate 17 assistant features

Google Assistant will lose 17 rarely used features. Google said these features were removed so they could focus on improving the quality of Assistant in the future.

In its announcement, Google said starting January 26 when users enable one of the features being removed, they will receive a notification saying that feature is being removed. Most of these features will be removed on February 26.

The news about the elimination of dozens of Assistant features came after Google laid off around a thousand employees in a number of divisions, including employees in the Google Assistant division.

The removed features will impact the Assistant on mobile devices, smartwatches, and smart speaker/display devices. For some features, They offers alternatives to replace the missing features. But there are some features that are omitted completely, such as integration of the Calm meditation service.

Some of the features that are removed include the option to send video emails or audio messages using voice. Assistant users will also not be able to use their voice to make payments, make reservations, or post to social media.

Google also changed the function of the microphone icon in the app and Search bar. Now users who tap the icon will only get a response in the form of search results in Search.

This means that Assistant users can no longer tap the microphone icon in the application or the Search bar to give commands such as turning on lights or sending messages, as quoted from Tech Viral, Saturday (13/1/2024).

Google says this change also applies to Pixel devices as the microphone in the Pixel’s Search bar will call up Voice Search and not Assistant. A complete list of 17 Assistant features that Google has removed can be seen on the following page.

It turns out that Huawei is still using chips made by TSMC, is that okay?

Huawei apparently does not fully use chips made by SMIC from China, because their new laptop uses chips made by TSMC from Taiwan. How come?

The use of this TSMC chip was discovered after the Qingyun L540 — Huawei’s newest laptop — was disassembled by TechInsights. Inside the laptop there is a 5nm chip made by TSMC, namely the Kirin 9006C.

However, interestingly, this chip is not a new chip, but a chip made by TSMC in 2020. At that time, the US government had just implemented regulations that prevented Huawei from using chips with the latest technology.

This finding dismisses speculation that SMIC can already produce chips with the latest technology, not just 7nm chips made using old technology, as quoted by Tech viral from Bloomberg, Tuesday (9/1/2024).

Kirin 9006C is a processor made by TSMC using 5nm fabrication, and production in Q3 2020. Meanwhile, Qingyuan L540 was released in early December 2023 for the Chinese market.

Initially, this laptop gave rise to rumors that SMIC could already produce 5nm chips using contemporary technology. However, this rumor was ultimately not proven because the chip was made by TSMC.

The use of 5nm chips made in 2020 raises the assumption that Huawei is using chips from TSMC which they had stockpiled before being banned by the US government.

Previously, Huawei caused a stir after they released the Mate 60 Pro which uses a 7nm 5G chip made by SMIC, a chip manufacturing company from Shanghai, China.

This cellphone is said to be only a few years behind the technology in the newest cellphones. In fact, this is what the US government is trying to avoid through various prohibition regulations.

Wonderful! iPhone 12 Still Alive After 3 Months Drowning in River

A diver in California, United States found an iPhone 12 that had sunk while cleaning in a river. Miraculously the iPhone 12 was still alive after spending three months at the bottom of the river.

The diver named Lee found the iPhone 12 while cleaning the Stanislaus River on November 10. The iPhone 12 was found among rocks and was covered in algae

Lee took the iPhone 12 home to be cleaned, and he left it to dry for several days. On November 16, Lee managed to activate the iPhone after connecting it to a charger.

The iPhone apparently did not have a passcode, and Lee was able to unlock it to see information such as the last photo taken and contacts. The last content in the Photos application is a video taken at the river where the cellphone was found.

The video was taken on September 4, which indicates that the iPhone 12 had been submerged in the river for three months, as quoted by Apple Insider, Monday (25/12/2023).

Lee has not succeeded in finding the owner of the iPhone . However, he had planned to contact several numbers on the cellphone’s contact list.

The iPhone 12 itself has IP68 certification, which means this cellphone can be immersed under water to a depth of six meters for 30 minutes. However, in some cases iPhones and other waterproof cellphones can last longer in water due to several factors.

Water and dust can be prevented from entering the internal parts of the iPhone with the help of gaskets. So as long as the gasket is not damaged, the iPhone will not be seriously damaged even if it is submerged under water for a long time.

The gasket on an iPhone can be damaged by dropping it, being repeatedly submerged in water, or being exposed to steam. So it’s best not to drown the cellphone on purpose because it’s not certain that the gasket is still in perfect condition.

Twitch Releases New Rules, Can Perverted Content Be Broadcast?

Twitch has just released new rules regarding sexual content. This stems from the popularity of meta topless, which has suddenly gone viral on the platform.

The live streaming activity, which showed almost the entire chest area, certainly received a negative reaction from the audience. So many of them are wondering about Twitch’s views and the rules they apply.

“We received feedback that our policies around sexual content were unclear, so we’ve set clearer boundaries between what is and isn’t permitted on Twitch,” Twitch wrote.

They clarified some major changes. One of them is that now content that deliberately highlights the breasts, buttocks or pelvic area (when wearing clothing) is allowed, as long as it is labeled appropriately.

According to him, accurate content labeling can help viewers have a more satisfying viewing experience. Therefore, now they will activate labeling according to sexual content using the Content Classification Labels (CCL) system.

“We believe that some of the restrictions in our previous policy are no longer necessary. In addition to providing clarity, this update will also reduce the risk of inconsistent enforcement,” Twitch said.

Twitch said that they will now allow the following content, as long as it is “properly labeled”, as compiled Tech Viral from IGN, Friday (15/12/2023).

Some of the restrictions in our previous policy are no longer necessary in Twitch

1.Content that deliberately emphasizes breasts, buttocks, or the pelvic area

2.Fictional works (drawn, animated, or sculpted) depicting female breasts and/or genitals or buttocks in their entirety, regardless of gender

3.Bodywriting on breasts and/or buttocks featuring women regardless of gender

4.An erotic dance involving disrobing or disrobing movements, such as a striptease

5.Popular dances, such as twerking, grinding and pole dancing are now allowed without labels

As explained, this change was motivated by topless content which was currently popular. This content went viral because it was done by a Twitch streamer named Morgpie, who is also a creator on OnlyFans.
