Google Stadia aims to be “faster and more responsive” than PS5 and Xbox Scarlett

In an interview, Stadia’s vice president of engineering, Madj Bakar, stated the goal of Google Stadia: to be faster and more responsive than consoles in one to two years. For this, new anti-latency technologies will be used.

The situation is particularly complicated when Xbox Scarlett and PS5 come on the market, the latter being officially announced for the end of 2020. Interviewed by the renowned paper magazine Edge, picked up by PCGames N, Google Stadia’s vice president of technology Alex Wiltshire put forward a particular argument.

Google Stadia aims for a total absence of latency

In one or two years, the Xbox Scarlett and PS5 of this world will be available on the market. However, the engineer seems convinced that he can solve the important issue of latency, which is the most important point to convince on this type of service.

For this, Google relies on the power of its servers and its artificial intelligence, but also on the “Negative latency”. This barbarous term describes the idea that the server can act as a buffer between the player and his game, and predict its actions in order to counterbalance connection wanderings or quickly increase the refresh rate to fill the latency between the pressure and the game. display.

Android 10: Google wants to impose its navigation by gestures

With Android 10, Google has finally reviewed its navigation gestures after a troubling first version on Android 9 Pie. It tries to impose on all manufacturers, who are doomed to hide their solutions in the depths of the parameters.

That said, many manufacturers have been working on developing their own version to cover this first mistake. While Google seeks to make the experience of its OS as close as possible between all mobiles, it discreetly imposes its version of navigation by gestures.

Google forces the use of its navigation by gestures

9to5Google makes us know that with Android 10 and the latest version of Google Mobile Services, manufacturers simply no longer have the option to offer their own navigation during the process of first booting a device. Only two options are allowed by Google: classic buttons, or navigation gestures.

Essentially, alternative navigation methods are allowed but must remain hidden. Only the most experienced users will have the curiosity to look for all this in the depths of the parameters. At least, it contributes to greater consistency between devices, and the disappearance of this ugly pill navigation.

Facebook Is Removing Likes Counter Feature

In an attempt to stem the never-ending race at Like, which we find endlessly behind every publication, Facebook has decided to take an example on Instagram by considering, too, to remove its counter from posts.

This is information that we owe to the engineer Jane Manchun Wong, and that could mark the end of the race to Like on Facebook. Note that just like on Instagram, which already tests the tool successfully in several countries including Canada and Brazil, the number of Like would still be accessible to the author of the post, even in case of general deployment of the functionality.

Asked by the site TechCrunch, Facebook has confirmed his desire to test sustainably the removal of the counter of Like, but without giving further details on the subject. While the likes have long been the main engine of interactions on Mark Zuckerberg’s social network, the platform seems to have been detaching itself for some months – at least in part from its historical system, by curbing the pressure of counting Like and the ill-being that the latter can sometimes generate in the user.

For Instagram, the company had justified its choice by explaining the goal “that your friends focus on the photos and videos you share, not the number of likes they get.”

Huawei Is Testing New Aurora OS As A Replacement for Android

Even after HarmonyOS, Huawei continues its search for alternatives to Android. As a test, the giant could sell 360,000 tablets under the Russian Aurora OS system to the Russian government.

Huawei, caught in an uncomfortable position internationally, has already developed HarmonyOS, a connected object operating system that could be used as a way out if the use of Android becomes too precarious.

“It’s a pilot project,” anonymous source told Reuters. We see it as the first step in launching the Russian OS on Huawei devices. ” The firm would like to sell tablets under Aurora OS to the Russian Ministry of Communications for the next census of 147 million Russians, as of this October. But we understand that it would be a way for Huawei to test life-size the implementation of Aurora OS on real devices.

Aurora OS was originally a Finnish operating system called Sailfish OS, based on Linux and dedicated to mobile devices. It was then dubbed by Moscow and the current owner of Aurora OS is none other than Rostelecom, the Russian public telecom operator. The latter happens to be the only entity entitled to purchase tablets for the census.

In total, the contract would provide for the purchase of 360,000 Huawei tablets under Aurora OS by August 2020. Nothing is yet final, as negotiations are currently underway.

Best Instagram Marketing Strategies

Best Instagram Marketing Strategies to Promote Your Niche-Focused Business

Instagram is one of the fastest growing social media platforms currently making to the frontline of the Internet. With more than a billion accounts, Instagram has created quite an impact especially among teens. It has become a social networking website that one just can’t ignore. It has now become an integral part of our lives and what’s more? It has also become quite the resource to promote business. 

However, not every brand on the Instagram market has earned its significant liberty to rapidly grow as some have. Doesn’t it make you wonder what some of these major brands are doing that’s working out for them? I am also eagerly interested just as you are. So, I took some time off from my busy schedule and performed the necessary research. Here are a few Instagram marketing strategies to help you promote your business effectively on Instagram. Now, you can also turn 0 to 100 real quick. 

Build a Community Around Actionable Hashtags

It is a great strategy that is most commonly observed being practiced by some of the major brands. 

Actionable Hashtags

To best explain the concept, let’s consider Nike. The business chose to run their Winter Campaigns captioned as “Choose Your Winter.” Nike used a hashtag campaigning method titled as #runfree campaign which really attracted a great number of audience and before you know it, the hashtag became quite the trend. Nike benefited from the hashtag by building its own community around it. 

You as a starter brand can do the same as well. Pick out hashtags or create the ones that are really impactful. Now custom-tailor your brand campaigns to favor these hashtags and run your campaigns. 

For example, Infatuation is a trendy restaurant review website found back in the year 2009. These guys weren’t quite the popular review sites on the Internet block, but with their hashtag #EEEEEATS, they created a significant impact and earned their popularity. The hashtag give them quite the virality. 

Be an Empath, and Relate to Your Followers

Most brands and businesses are empathic so they aim to understand their target audiences. By knowing the teeny tiniest bit of details and happenings in their life, they are able to create Instagram posts that are quite an attraction for them. As a brand, I am sure you’ve already established a few buyer personas of your own, and you already have an idea of what your average lead may look like. 

However now, it is that time when you have to seek why they are present on Instagram. Are they coming to Instagram because they want to kill boredom or are they there to check on their friends? 

A great example of empathy on Instagram is

empathy on Instagram is

So how can brands become empathic? 

Let’s assume that one of your clients love cakes and he or she gets super excited when they see one on their Instagram feeds. You are a cake selling brand and hence, you take some snazzy looking images of the cake. Now, just optimizing your Instagram campaign to show those images on client’s feed isn’t going to be enough. What you require is a bit of captioning and an Instagram harpoon. 

What are Instagram harpoons? These are humorously designed and well-written social captions. 

For instance, 

“Who would love to have this CAKE on a Sunday Breezy Morning with her beloveds? #sundaybreezymornings #fonduecakes #cakeseason 

Your Biography Plays a Significant Role

When you are creating your Instagram bio, just keep in mind that you design them a whole lot differently than your Facebook & LinkedIn profile. Your Instagram shouldn’t contain any boring details such as your long lasting Resumes and professional qualifications. What audiences nowadays are basically seeking is how human-like is the brand and can it connect with the audience requirements?  

For example, check how Mesmereyez, halloween contact lenses selling business has done it correctly.

To make your brand bio details shine out among your competitors, you can use a mix of emojis and humorous single-liners and create a more humanized connection between yourself and the audience. 

Why Not Share Videos on Your Instagram

The video feature on Instagram is not anything new but it has gained some significant popularity over-time. Many brands who are promoting their businesses on Instagram are leveraging the power of short 15-second videos to ensure that their brand message is heard loud and clear on social podiums. 

For example, here’s a video campaign that Oreo ran earlier this year. 

The campaign was pretty much designed to promote a chance to win something with Oreo. 

However, you can use video in different number of ways instead. You can use a video to promote a product launch taking place, for example, over here Oreo is marketing one of its maple creme cookies.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B1bbsOclSdw/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Or you can share some behind-the-scenes funny moments like Oreo did with Wiz Khalifa. 

You can even embed these Instagram videos on your website, if you have one. That’s the only puzzle which you are missing out on, to complete your perfect Instagram marketing circle once and for all. 

Promote Your Instagram Just About Everywhere

Creating a profile on Instagram and marketing your content consistently isn’t going to get you anywhere. If you want people to see your profile or reach out to you, then you need to make sure you promote your Instagram in other places as well. For instance, if you have a homepage or different product pages interconnecting to your social networks, put your Instagram social icon there as well.

Start internally by asking your stakeholders to share your Instagram account using relevant business hashtags. Learning the art of hashtagging is significantly important, and businesses who know how to leverage that art are the ones that expressively grow then those who don’t put their focus on it at all. 

Include your Instagram icon in your email signatures, on your social profiles, in your business cards, on websites and just about everywhere which can give your Instagram profile a good exposure. 

Instagram is the future’s way forward for businesses. It is not only growing at an immense pace but more than half the society is actively using it on a daily basis. Businesses who fails to pay attention to Instagram marketing often suffer a business backlash. It’s because they normally leave a large market untapped! If you haven’t invested your time in Instagram advertising and marketing, now is the time.

Instagram is working on a Snapchat-like app

Facebook is testing another Snapchat clone.

The app “is designed to facilitate continuous, automatic sharing between users,” The Verge said, and the company has released a model of the app based on screenshots of unpublished apps. The image shows a single feed where you can see a friend’s story or a brief “status”.

Facebook and Instagram have been trying to copy Snapchat at least six times over the years. However, these attempts were unsuccessful until Instagram launched Stories in its own application.

Of course, Facebook’s previous attempts to create a separate Snapchat clone were unsuccessful, and Threads could be as easy as other Snapchats that the company has been dying over the years. However, by integrating Instagram stories with the user’s “close friends,” the company at least indicates that it is willing to put all the features of Instagram into practice.

Google To Disable Youtube Messaging Feature from September 18

Google announced that it will soon turn off YouTube private messaging. This decision is for two reasons. 1) Not many people use YouTube Messaging. 2) Most children are using this feature, which brings them security issues.

This feature was launched in 2017; however, due to the availability of other messaging platforms such as WhatsApp, this feature is not universal. Although Google has not yet announced the official date, it is rumored that the feature will be closed after September 18.

YouTube is a video streaming platform that no one can complete. But this feature is not just for such a platform. After reanalysis, the company decided to stop using the messaging option. In addition, YouTube plans to focus more on improving public conversations than on wasting resources on this available feature.

Do not sleep with your smartphone charging in bed

Shortly after falling asleep, a 19-year-old woman from Michigan (United States) woke up with burns and a severe pain in her neck. Thinking that this wound was due to her collar, she pulled it out and headed for local emergencies. The source of this evil was actually different.

After examination, this injury was actually caused by the charger of her phone whose cable was under her pillow. The power supply was plugged into the power grid, but the phone was not charging at that time. According to the doctors quickly established the link:

We think that his injury was caused by the electric current from the charger, the end of which probably touched his collar, which allowed the current to pass“.

As a result of this incident, the doctors remind that “all devices using a USB charger can cause this type of accident“.

In addition, a study revealed at the beginning of the year that many generic chargers do not pass the electrical safety tests. It is therefore advisable to avoid first-price chargers of unknown brands to favor those of manufacturers or trusted and reputable third-party brands.
