Facebook’s looking to make Messenger great again.
Wait… no, simple, Facebook wants to simplify the app, taking it back to its initial messaging roots.
When Instagram launched its own live-streaming video option back in 2016, Instagram Live product manager Shilp Sarkar noted that:
"The use case that caught our attention was people just hanging out on live, particularly young people. After school, they jump on a live-stream and hang out. That use of live [video] is particularly interesting to us."
Last week, Facebook held its annual F8 developer conference, which means we’re going to hear a heap about new projects and tools on the way, and the latest on their initiatives to improve privacy and boost community engagement.
So not the best day for Snap Inc.
The parent company of Snapchat has released its Q1 2018 performance report, and the numbers don’t look great. Well, on balance anyway.
The announcements are coming hard and fast out of Facebook’s annual F8 developer conference.
In addition to new AR ad tools for Messenger, Messenger chief David Marcus has also announced a new feature called ‘M Translations’, which will enable users to automatically translate messages sent to them in their non-native language, expanding opportunities for international commerce.
