Instagram is going in full gear to rip off what remains of Snapchat, sadly. In Instagram’s latest update in version 10.21 for iOS and Android, Instagram introduces new selfie filters which seem identical to Snapchat’s filters. You can also reverse the filters just like Snapchat.

Android, users can simply tap a button and enable the face filters mode. Here you can select from a number of filters at the bottom that update and animate in real-time. The copying didn’t stop there, Instagram also copied the actual filters.

The filters look very identical to those on Snapchat, they also have the same features like opening your mouth for additional effects and animations. You can also record a video with these or take a picture, which you can upload to your story or send in a private message or to a group.

Another “ripped off/new” feature in this update is Rewind, where a video plays in the reverse order.

Other additions include adding hashtags to your story photos and an eraser brush.

With this Instagram has almost rendered Snapchat useless. If Snapchat has any last breath to do anything they should do something before they’re gone down the drain. I

It has become a habit of applications to receive functionality in a non-uniform manner, especially with regard to different versions for Android and iOS. Not being the exception to the rule, Spotify also receives functionality at different times in its various versions.

After being released for the Android version last May, Spotify for iOS received finally the popular “Sleep Timer” feature. That is, iPhone users can also fall asleep listening to their favorite music / podcast without any problem.

How to use the new Spotify feature for iOS

To use the “Sleep Timer” feature is very simple. After selecting the desired song, you will need to click on the “three dots” icon in the upper right corner and select the “Sleep Timer” option.

Then you will only need to choose the timeout where Spotify will be playing the song. You will be able to choose times between 5 and 60 minutes.

Also, for whom doesn’t have a dedicated playlist for when you are getting ready for sleep, the app has also released a new section called “Sleep Hub”. Here you will find a wide list of perfect song suggestions to accompany you in a true “beauty sleep.”

Google Photos New tool will help you keep albums organized

Google Photos remains one of my favorite apps, presenting itself as the perfect way to keep all your photos and videos organized in one place. In addition, they are accessible virtually anywhere and on any device.

As one of the most popular Google Apps, they continue to invest a lot of resources in developing and implementing new features. The latest addition will help you keep albums organized by making it easy to find what you’re really looking for.

A small detail that can save you a lot of time.

The new implementation may go unnoticed for many users, but it is no less important. In the albums tab, Google Photos will start displaying a new option, which allows you to organize your albums according to different conditions.

For now, at this early stage, you will be able to keep albums organized by what has the most recent photo, which you modified less recently or simply in alphabetical order. Most likely, Google will continue to develop this new implementation to make it even easier to find the album you want.

This new implementation is coming first hand to Android smartphone users and is not yet available for iOS or the web version. However, it is important to note that it is being launched through Google’s servers. That is, it will not reach all users at the same time.

In order to receive the new implementation, you need to have the latest version of the App, so make sure you don’t have any updates available.

Although it has not been officially confirmed, it is believed that once reaching all Android users, the new feature will eventually also be available for iOS and the web version of Google Photos.
