Google debuts all-new Wear OS interface with Google Assistant feed

An all-new way to get to the core features of your smartwatch.

Wear OS hasn’t been the most exciting platform the last few years, even back to when it was still called Android Wear.

What did chronological order ever do to you, YouTube?

From missing notifications to videos not showing up on the Home page, it’s becoming harder and harder for YouTubers to make sure their content is seen by their subscribers.

Snapchat made both user-facing and under-the-hood changes with this update, but it appears to be pulling back on at least one of these.

One of the most contested changes had to do with the way Snapchat presented Stories.  [Read More…]

Instagram now lets you follow hashtags in your main feed

Stay up to date with all of your interests.

Hashtags have been a part of Instagram since forever, and as fun as it is to look up #cats or #pugs, they’ve always required extra work on the user’s part. Adding hashtags to your own posts is easy enough, but if you actually want to look at other photos/videos using certain hashtags, you need to head to the Discover page and manually search for them.
