Facebook update brings Live Audio broadcasting to Android devices

0

The latest Facebook update brings a new Live Audio feature for those who want to live-stream events without using video. Announced in a blog post earlier today, the feature should be super helpful for those who want to tell a story on Facebook with only their words and the audio around them.

Facebook says its new Live Audio feature will not only alert broadcasters if their signal is low, but also present another option for connecting with audiences in real-time from low-connectivity areas. And just like with live video on Facebook, listeners will be able to listen to audio content right from their News Feed, ask questions and leave reactions in real time.

Live Audio users on Android will be able to listen to a broadcast even if they leave the Facebook app or lock their phones, while iOS users will need to stay within the Facebook app to keep listening.

That’s not the only big change coming to Facebook, though. The next time you try signing into a third-party app through Facebook, the process may be much quicker than usual.

Facebook has just introduced a new instant verification tool to its latest developer Account Kit SDK, which provides a two-factor authentication system to help verify users and log them in more quickly. When it comes to other two-factor authentication systems, you’d normally need to receive an SMS and enter in a code to get signed in. Now, when you attempt a Facebook login for a third-party website, you’ll be able to simply enter your phone number. As long as the phone number you use is the same one that’s associated with your Facebook account, you’ll be verified and signed in.

It’s worth noting that the new verification process only works if you’re logged into the Facebook for Android app on the same device. So no using the mobile app, or a Facebook for Android alternative.

If everything checks out, you’ll be able to simply enter in your phone number and be logged in right away. If not, you’ll receive a one-time password via SMS that you can enter in on your other device. Facebook notes that this new tool will make it much easier to log into services in areas of the world where SMS delivery is less than reliable.

Developers will be able to take advantage of the new feature by integrating the new Facebook SDK into their apps or sites.

HD video upload

December 7: Facebook has quietly added support for the uploading of HD videos in its Android app, which is certainly a welcome change. In addition to HD video upload, Facebook’s Android app has gained picture-in-picture mode for video, the ability to download clips to watch them offline, and specific resolution upload options ranging from 72p up to 360p.

5 Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week! – Android Apps Weekly

Welcome to the 170th edition of Android Apps Weekly! Here are the headlines from the last week:

  • Google Allo limped over the ten million installations mark this week. It’s a number to be proud of, but we all know that Allo has had a cold reception from almost everyone. That makes the ten million mark seem both impressive and a little sad. The app has been getting better and we’re sure it’s only a matter of time before things pick up a little more. As it stands, these things are marathons and not sprints, so it’s still too early to call this a success or failure.
  • Evernote has updated their privacy policy and everyone’s pretty mad about it. The policy will give a small number of Evernote employees the ability to view your notes. According to the CEO, this is so the machine learning features that will be implemented soon can work properly. Thankfully, the company will give users the option to opt out of this if they want to. The change will take place in late January so keep your eyes peeled if you use Evernote.
  • Okay, so get this. Someone actually went and spent $1 million on a freemium game. The guy who did it actually stole the money from the job he was working. He then turned around and blew a million of it on a game called Game of War. He also spent money on plastic surgery and season tickets to the San Francisco 49ers. As you can imagine, the man has been arrested. This also no doubt helped Game of War’s bottom line quite a bit.
  • Google released their top regular search trends for 2016. As you can imagine, it sums up the year pretty well. You see the expected results like Hillary Clinton and Trump along with Prince, the Olympics, David Bowie, and Pokemon Go. The very top of the list was Powerball, which was worth a mind-bending $1.56 billion back in January. Apparently, everyone wanted to see how that turned out.
  • Super Mario Run was released on iOS this last week. There are tons of game play videos on YouTube now if you want to check that out. It’s had a fairly polarizing reception so far with some praising the mobile-centric game play while others wish it adhered to older Mario mechanics. In either case, you can get it on iTunes now. Nintendo is going to release the game on Android. However, they have been a little quiet on when that will happen for right now.

[Price: Free]
Netflix has officially released their app for Daydream VR. The good news is that it should work with all of their video content. The VR experience puts you in a room with a TV with Netflix playing on that TV. It actually looks pretty cool. The bad news is that the app is suffering from some release bugs which include playback errors. The UX probably could use a little work as well. Still, it does work most of the time so it’s worth a shot if you have Daydream.

Facebook introduces new camera for Messenger, adds festive effects

Facebook has updated its Messenger app with a new camera and some Christmas-themed effects. The upgraded camera is “faster, simpler and more fun,” than previously, says Facebook, in order to meet increasingly visual messaging needs.

The camera button itself now appears at the bottom-center of the app and is available once Messenger is opened, rather than only in the conversation window.

The new features include AR effects, or “3D masks”, which overlay animated content onto videos, as well as “thousands of stickers, frames,” and other effects.

Facebook introduces new camera for Messenger, adds festive effects

“Over 2.5 billion emojis, photos, stickers and videos are sent every day on Messenger,” said Facebook, in its announcement. “In some ways the camera is now replacing the keyboard.”

Facebook announced the update yesterday, so it should be hitting devices soon. Download Facebook Messenger from Google Play at the link.

Recent updates

Messenger games

November 29, Facebook has rolled out an update which allows users to play classic and current games via Messenger. Tapping the new game controller icon in the app, found below the text box, will bring up a list of the free games for you to play. There are 17 games available currently, from classics like Pac-Man, Galaga and Space Invaders to more recent releases such as Words with Friends: Frenzy.

Android Auto notifications

November 15, Facebook has announced that it has integrated Android Auto support into its Messenger app. While driving an Android Auto-supported vehicle, Messenger will display new message notifications on the screen and users can play the message out loud by tapping the speaker icon. There are also two options for responding: one is to press a button that will send a message such as, “I’m driving right now; contact me later”.  The other is to speak the message they want to send, which will then be transcribed and sent to the recipient as text.

Facebook might release the Events app for Android today

Around 100 million people use Facebook events on a daily basis. That’s why the company decided to launch a standalone Events app back in October. Initially available for iOS devices, the app is now making its way over to Android. According to TechCrunch, Facebook will release the Android version of its Events app today.

The app lets you search for events that are scheduled near your location, and check out the ones your friends are going to as well as those announced by the Pages you like. You can also browse through recommendations that are based on time, location, and your interests, or find interesting events with the help of an interactive map.

The app comes with its own calendar, which is especially handy if you’re a heavy user and attend a lot of events. It’s able to pull in appointments from other calendar apps on your device too, to make sure you can see everything in one place.

Even though Events is a standalone app, your activities within the app will still be seen on your Facebook profile. These include, among other things, the events you are interested in or are going to attend. As already mentioned, the app might be launched today, which means you’ll be able to download it to your device via the Google Play Store.

If you’re thinking of trying out the app once it’s released, let us know by posting a comment down below.

Facebook for Android quietly adds support for uploading HD video

The new HD video settings option was first reported by Android Police, which adds that the feature is apparently rolled out to most, but not quite all, of Facebook’s Android users. The report also says other new video features are appearing for some users as well, but they are not yet available for everyone. They include picture-in-picture video, the ability to download clips to watch offline later, and specific resolution upload options (from 72p all the way up to 360p).

Finally, up and down arrows are showing up for some Facebook users in the app’s notifications view. This will allow users to check their notifications in either direction, as opposed to going back to the top view all the time.

Again, not all of these features are available yet for all Android Facebook users, but they appear to be in testing for a wide release sometime in the very near future. Do you plan to use the new HD video upload option for your clips?

Zuckerberg offers sneak peek at potential features coming to Facebook

Mark Zuckerberg gave us a glimpse of what the social giant could be bringing to Facebook next year, and it’s very cool indeed.

Facebook shuts down Live Video API access for Prisma

7 days ago

Just yesterday, Zuckerberg took to Facebook Live to show off some cool features that the team has been working on: some cool features that we could see on Facebook in the future, which include location requesting, GIFs as comments, and more.

Facebook’s Oculus Touch controllers are well-received by critics, some even calling them “the best virtual reality controllers so far.” Well, it seems Facebook is already hard at work making the Oculus Touch even better. Zuckerberg showed a demo device – a modified version of the current Oculus Touch – which physically changes its temperature depending on your virtual interaction. For instance, if you are hovering over a fire in your virtual reality like Zuckerberg was, the controllers will get physically warm.

There are also some big changes that might be coming to the social network itself. Zuckerberg demoed a new feature in Messenger, where you can request someone’s precise location. He explained that this “builds on the safety check work” that the company has done. Personally, I think it’s a fantastic idea, and takes the current emergency check-in process one step further. After all, social media is playing an increasingly bigger role in emergency situations.

Next up: more GIFs. If you love using GIFs in Messenger, you are going to love this – in the near future, you may be able to use GIFs as comments. Thanks to Giphy and Riffsy, users will be able to find the right GIF just like in Messenger and post it as a comment. Now, this is something that I’ve been waiting for a very long time.

Thanks to Giphy and Riffsy, users will be able to find the right GIF just like in Messenger and post it as a comment. Now, this is something that I’ve been waiting for a very long time.

The last of the demoed features is an AI-based shared albums feature. Essentially, the machine recognizes what you want (i.e. photos from the wedding) and gathers all the relevant photos and videos and creates an album for everyone to see.

Although these are not confirmed features, it is highly likely that we will see at least some of them next year – we will make sure to keep you updated!

5 Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week! – Android Apps Weekly

Welcome to the 168th edition of Android Apps Weekly. Here are the headlines from the last week:

  • Hatch is a new start up that spun off from Rovio. Yes, the developers of Angry Birds. Hatch is working on a project that will allow you to stream Android games to your device and play them for free. There won’t be in-app purchases or updates to deal with. It’ll be just you and the game.  There are also some ambitious ideas like pulling the Internet for help inside of the game, even in single player games. An invite beta is should be out in early 2017.
  • Facebook shut down its Live Video API access for Prisma this week. Previously, Prisma was using the API to allow people to create filters while streaming live on Facebook. Now, that is no longer possible. Facebook sent Prisma an email stating that access was revoked because Facebook already supported the feature. In reality, it seems like Facebook was just shutting down some competition before their own filters option rolls out to everyone. Good job, Facebook.
  • It has been reported that one million Google accounts have been breached by a new brand of malware called Gooligan. It affects people who download third party apps not from Google Play. From there, it downloads root kits and tries to get control of your device. It’s unfortunately, but those who keep their downloading strictly to the Google Play Store don’t need to worry because the exploit is not present there.
  • A study released this week showed that consumers spent more than $1 billion during Black Friday 2016 by using their smartphones and tablets. This is the first time that number has ever eclipsed $1 billion and shows that more people than ever before are shopping online. We’ve no doubt that apps contributed to the overall total. After all, most brick and mortar stores have their own apps these days. The total online sales from the weekend topped $5 billion.
  • Google Play is now actively trying to hunt down fake reviews in the Play Store. It’s been an issue for a while now. Essentially what happens is shady developers pay people to download the app over and over again on different accounts and leave favorable reviews. The rating goes way up and people think the app is great. We don’t know how effective this fake review washing will be, but we hope it’s pretty damn effective.

Facebook shuts down Live Video API access for Prisma

0

In an apparent attempt to shut down the competition, Facebook has now cut off access to its Live Video API for the popular Prisma image and video filters app. This move comes as both companies released ways to include stylized art filters to Facebook Live videos.

See also:

Prisma, our favorite filter app, is getting offline processing on Android

October 7, 2016

According to TechCrunch, Facebook sent an email to the team behind Prisma, stating that Facebook’s app already supports streaming of video from a “mobile device camera”. Facebook’s statement seems to suggest that its Live Video API is not meant to be used by mobile cameras and third-party apps, but rather by professional cameras, games and other sources. The report does point out that Facebook’s own FAQ page on the Live Video API does not specifically state that mobile camera streams are banned.

On the surface, this would appear to be a pretty heavy handed attempt by Facebook to stop Prisma from offering its own art filters for Facebook Live users. Facebook launched its Live filters for iOS for testing in a select number of countries a few weeks ago, but there’s no word on when that will expand to more territories. Of course, Facebook’s latest move has put the future of Prisma’s live video support in doubt, but in the meantime, it is still working on a social-themed update for the app which is planned for release in December.

5 Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week – Android Apps Weekly

Welcome to the 166th edition of Android Apps Weekly! Here are the headlines from the last week:

  • The developers of Critical Ops announced this week that their game has over ten million downloads and 300,000 active players. For those who don’t know, Critical Ops is a first person shooter that’s been in a perpetual beta since its release. Even so, it’s a solid game with decent graphics and mechanics. It’s a free download in the Play Store if you want to try it out. It’s a worthy competitor to more popular shooters like Modern Combat 5.
  • A new study done this week shows that Android users are more than twice as likely to uninstall apps and games than iOS users. The study indicates that 43% of games and 21% of app downloads eventually get uninstalled on Android. On iOS, those numbers are 13% and 9%, respectively. Whether Android users simply try more things or are more particular about their apps is up for discussion. Either way, it’s interesting.
  • Word around the digital grapevine is that Telltale’s upcoming 2017 Marvel game will be based around Guardians of the Galaxy. The information comes from a supposed leak originally covered by ComicBookMovie.com. Along with that, the leak also allegedly lists The Walking Dead Season 3 as a game that’s happening. We hope all of these leaks are true because that would be awesome.
  • Taiwan is currently trying to have Uber banned from every app store in its country. Here’s what happened. In Taiwan, transportation services pay a different set of taxes from technology platforms. Uber classified itself as a technology platform while the Taiwanese government is well aware that it’s essentially a transportation service. We’ll have to see how this turns out in the long run, but it’s not the first time Uber has been in hot water.
  • Facebook and Google are making some moves to help prevent the circulation of fake news. Facebook will simply stop allowing those stories to trend on its site while Google removes their AdSense money. We don’t know what this will mean for the satire community, but it’s actually kind of sad that we have the culmination of human knowledge at our fingertips via the Internet and this is still somehow a problem.
