Pixel themed snapchat filter; Google Fiber is also Wireless ISP; Google’s first Daydream VR headset; Android October Security patch

Today is Monday and that does inevitably mean that tomorrow is Tuesday. However, this particular upcoming Tuesday is a little different to most others, as it is October 4. To anyone interesting in Google, Android or tech in general, that means it is the day that Google is hosting (what is turning out to be) a fairly big event.

The scale of the event has been neatly demonstrated over the last few weeks by what seems to be a much larger than usual marketing effort by Google ahead of time.

New Whatsapp update brings better selfies and Snapchat like doodles

Update : In version 2.16.269 beta of WhatsApp, the ability to draw and add stickers has been added to videos as well. Record a video with WhatsApp’s built-in camera by holding the capture button.

Twitter, Depressingly, Tries to Be Snapchat

Move over Moments, because Twitter is releasing a new feature no one will care about.

This Thursday, Twitter will make its #Stickers feature available to all users, something that already functionally exists on Snapchat. #Stickers allows users to create collage custom emojis over photos.

The difference between #Stickers and what Snapchat already offers as a fundamental feature in their app is that users can tap on a sticker used in a tweeted photo, and scroll through a feed of other photos with that same sticker. Cute idea, but does anyone really care about how someone else is used a played out sunglasses emoji to “enhance” their content?

On Tuesday, Twitter reported that its shares fell 11 percent, marking its “slowest revenue growth since going public in 2013,” according to Reuters.

Twitter, babe, I love you so much. Imitating the features of a more popular app will not save you in the same way that, when a girl in middle school, buying knockoff versions of the rich popular girls’ designer clothes does not make her any cooler. In order to succeed, you must stay true to who you are.

But how exactly do you navigate Snapchat Memories, and how does this new feature work? Here’s how to use Snapchat Memories to your fullest advantage.
