The first blow to Snapchat was kicked off on Instagram which has over 600 million monthly active users, compared with Snapchat’s 150 million daily users. Instagram launched its own Instagram Stories just eight months ago and has already hit that same 150 million daily-user level.
The direct connection with Instagram and Facebook helped Instagram to reach that feat in such a short time. This reduced Snapchat’s growth from 12% to 3%.

Snap Inc might have thought it might just stop at Instagram but Mark wasn’t still satisfied with the results, he decided to open up the floodgates.

The stories were added on Facebook Messenger and Whatsapp, which have billions of users. Also the stories are also coming to the main Facebook app as well. Snapchat still has a few perks Facebook hasn’t copied yet but may soon copy. If Snapchat doesn’t do anything, anytime soon is will become a place we all once knew.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed and see what Snap Inc Comes up with to save their social network. Hopefully we won’t see them doing this in a short while –

Egg Gang Already Has Haters

Just when I thought I’ve seen it all. Take a look at this tweet

From my calculations the only Nigerian Celeb with a higher follower count than the egg is probably Davido.

On another note, this is kind of Sad. My IG account hasn’t even reached 20k. 😥😥

Whatsapp To Add Fingerprint Security

Fingeprint security is finally coming to Whatsapp which means – no more snooping around on other people’s chats when the app isn’t open.

WhatsApp has been working round the clock to ensure you get the best out of it this year and while we expect to see lots of update in the future including the ads, the fingerprint security is almost here .



 

Whatsapp To Add Fingerprint Security
According to the WhatsApp beta update for Android, the company is said to be working on a new authentication feature which isn’t available globally yet as the feature is currently under development.

Once the Fingerprint feature is enabled , the app will be completely protected, so the you will need to authenticate your identity in order to open WhatsApp (from the app icon, from the notification or from external pickers).

It will protect the entire app, meaning you can’t use it to lock specific conversations for now.

The company is also rumored to be working on implementing Face ID and Touch ID for iOS. There will be a section in the app where users can enable the fingerprint authentication feature.

Availability

This feature is in an alpha stage of development and it will be available in a few weeks for Android users Marshmallow and above, and iOS users.

WhatsApp Audio Picker

WhatsApp is also working to improve the audio picker that will allow users to see the list of all available audio files stored in your phone. The user will be able to play the audio before sending it, and it is also possible to select more audio files to send!
