LinkedIn New Features: Poll And Virtual Events Rolled Out

Linkedin started rolling out two new features- Polls and Virtual events, to increase the engagements on your network. The virtual events feature is a combination of Linkedin Live and Events, which you can use to bring a community of people together.

As many of the people are working from home these days, the new features of Linkedin are to create a work environment right at your home. 

Linkedin News editor Andrew Seaman shared a screenshot of a poll feature in one of his LinkedIn posts. It’s the best way to get feedback, opinions, and increase engagements with more LinkedIn users. Anyone can create a poll in less than a minute and share it on a feed.

For now, the feature lets you add four options to start a poll. People in your network can vote for only one of the four options. A person voting for an option cannot see who else is voting for which option. If a poll creator wants to get insights on the votes, there is an option to message the voter within the poll. 

The poll feature is not yet available for all the LinkedIn users. But once it rolls out globally to all users, creating a poll will be possible via the ‘Create new post’ feature of LinkedIn. Once a user clicks on ‘Create a new post,’ LinkedIn will show the option of creating a poll. 

Users can create four options for the poll and can select between 24 hours to two weeks to last a poll. Linkedin is recommending writing about a poll before sharing it in the form of a blog and using hashtags to reach more people. 

Speaking of Linkedin Virtual events features, it has the same motive as polls, which is to increase engagements within the network. As physical events are not possible during the Coronavirus pandemic, these virtual events are going to come handy for many people. Linkedin is pairing with third-party broadcast partners such as Wirecast, Streamyard to maintain the production quality of events. These third-party integrations will allow users to create paid events on Linkedin.

Back in 2014, Linkedin decided to shut down its poll feature and took too long to relaunch it. Facebook and Twitter already have a feature of polls for a very long time now. But better late launch than not launching at all, as these features are going to help people build even stronger networks than before. 

Based on what we found regarding two new features of Linkedin, the virtual event feature might become more advanced than today after partnering with third-party platforms.

Google Chromecast Ultra 2 Rumors Everything You Need To Know

Google Chromecast Ultra 2 is going to be a game-changer in the Chromecast generation. The rumors are rolling out with its expected release date and features. Tech lovers are expecting a lot from the rumored Chromecast Ultra 2, which will be a 4K streaming device. 

The central concept behind the launching of Chromecast back in 2013 was to convert regular LED/LCD TV into a smart TV. The devices added the spice of ‘smart TV’ to the regular TV by connecting the Chromecast device directly to the HDMI port.

Even though companies like MI, OnePlus are launching Smart TVs with inbuilt casting features, this new rumored Chromecast ultra 2 is going to be amazing. 

What new features will the device offer from the rest of the Chromecast products? According to the confidential source of 9to5Google, the new Google Chromecast Ultra 2 will release with inbuilt Android TV AKA Google TV and a fully functional remote control.

Chromecast has always been a first and best choice among geeks to Cast from smartphones or tablets to the TV. This new Chromecast product from Google will have what other products have never offered. A fully-featured smart platform with its apps and app store. 

Getting to the point: What Google Chromecast Ultra 2 might offer

  • You will get a dongle with in-built Android TV and 4K HDR streaming. 
  • It might release as soon in 2020, but an exact date is yet to go public.
  • The cost of the device will be around $80 or somewhat similar to other Chromecast products.

Speaking of the Design of the new rumored device:

The design is very similar to the previous Chromecast products. The Ultra 2 will have a circular dongle, which will plug to the HDMI port of your TV. A simple rectangular remote has similar minimal buttons as previous designs. 

Google might upgrade to the latest processor, a memory of 2GB or more, and support of HDMI 2.1 for Ultra 2. The Android TV of Ultra 2 will support Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos for next level Television experience. Besides, Ultra 2 will be released with the 10th version of Android TV.

Android TV will have the support of all the streaming platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, YoutTube, HBO, Twitch, EPIX, and more. Android TV already has the integration of Smart home via Google assistant; the Ultra 2 will offer these features. 

Google always tries to integrate the latest features to the coming devices. Hence, the Chromecast Ultra 2 might set the bar high. 

In our opinion and considering the rumored features, the new Chromecast ultra 2 can give tough competition to Smart TVs and other Chromecast products.  

Instagram Lite Disappears From Google Play Store! Might Re-release With The New Version

The Instagram lite app, which was first released in 2018, shuts down. The app has disappeared from the Google Play Store and might re-release with new features. The existing Instagram Lite users received a message ‘Instagram Lite is No longer supported.’ Users have been shifted to the latest version of the Instagram app. 

Instagram Lite was a popular and highly ranked app in selected countries where it was available to download, including Kenya, Mexico, Peru, and the Philippines.

According to the reports, the slimmed version of Instagram, AKA Instagram Lite, got unpublished from Play store in between April 12-15. Instagram Lite, now owned by Facebook, is now under test and development.

According to Facebook spokesperson’s statement, they are rolling back to the testing phase of Instagram lite. They are encouraging users to shift to the original Instagram app until the Lite returns.

The primary goal behind releasing Instagram Lite was to offer some of the features of Instagram without consuming much storage space. Users were able to apply filters on the images, post it on feed, share stories, and explore more content. However, Instagram Lite did not allow users to share videos on feed and send direct messages to their followers. 

The size of the slimmed version of Instagram was merely 573 kilobytes, which was around 1/55th the size of the Instagram app. 

In 2018, Mexico was the first to receive Instagram Lite on Play Store, followed by Kenya, Peru, and the Philippines. The app was ranking on number 8 in Kenya, 12 in Peru, 15 in Mexico, and 22 in the Philippines’s social category apps on Google Play. These four countries had the highest number of downloads on Instagram Lite. 

Due to millions of downloads, the app made its entry in the highest-ranked apps on play store. However, the app vanished from the play store for further testing. Facebook is claiming to test the app and bring it back as soon as it’s ready with the latest version.

Instagram Lite was one of the Lite apps Facebook had launched over the past few years, including Facebook Lite and Messenger Lite. The majority of popular tech companies like Uber, Spotify, Twitter, and more launched their Lite versions of apps. Unlike these apps, Instagram Lite did not reach some of emerging markets like India, Indonesia, Brazil, and more. 

For now, Instagram Lite users can use the Instagram web, or Instagram app to stay connected with their followers and enjoy their social life. 

As of now, Facebook did not reveal many details on when Instagram Lite will return.

We think that Facebook might release Instagram Lite in more countries and eventually allow the app globally. 

Import Google Play Music Library To YouTube Music With Transfer Music Feature

Google is rolling out a feature of ‘Transfer music’ to the YouTube Music app from today that will help users to import library from Google Play Music to YouTube Music. The company has been trying to slowly fade away the Google Play Music app and shift to the YouTube music server. 

Google, for the past few years, was enhancing the YouTube music app by adding new features. Now, the company wants to make Play music users feel like home at YouTube music by officially inviting them to the new app. 

The users showed concerns about losing the playlists, music recommendations, and purchases as Google decided to move the server. But Google made it easier for users to continue the music libraries and playlists on YouTube Music App. 

With the transfer button, users can quickly shift all the music, playlists, and add-ons to the YouTube music. User’s personal music preferences will get reflected in YouTube Music as soon as they transfer everything from Google play music.

Google is moving towards making YouTube music as it’s default music app at a steady pace. Users have plenty of time to get used to the YouTube music app. The deadline to shut down the Google Play Music is later this year. The exact date is yet to be announced by Google.

To Transfer the Music, users need to follow the following steps:

  1. Download the YouTube Music App on Android/iOS and login with your Google account. 
  2. At the bottom right corner, click on the ‘Transfer button.’
  3. All your music, playlists, likes and dislikes, purchases, and everything will be transferred to YouTube music.
    import google play music library to youtube music
  4. Google will send you an email and notification after the completion of the transfer, and your new music recommendations will appear immediately after the transfer.
  5. You will be able to find your music and playlists under the ‘Library’ tab in the YouTube music app. Read more about the process here.

In addition to music apps, Google is also allowing podcast listeners to transfer the podcast progress and personal taste to Google Podcasts. The Google Podcasts app will be a default app for podcasts listening and will improve the user experience.

Last year, Google shut down Google Play Artist hub and merged the Play Music with YouTube Music app for indie artists. Google will shut down Play Music soon enough this year and ultimately move to YouTube Music. 

Right now, the good news for all Play Music users is that they are not going to lose anything, rather will gain new features via the YouTube Music app.

The Subscription plan for YouTube Music is the same as Google play music, which is $9.99/month. With this pricing plan, users can get offline music access, ad-free music experience, on-demand streaming, and background listening. Users can extend YouTube music subscription to YouTube Premium at $11.99 per month.

Google Music is not yet a big rival of Spotify due to the less user base. With Google Play Music and YouTube Music, Google was splitting the music user base into two different servers. Now, as the company decided to shift all the music users in one place, the scenario could change.

In our opinion, with YouTube Music, Google might cross the user base of Apple music. But to enter as a rival of Spotify, YouTube Music needs a lot more users to join. 

Spotify New Feature Group Sessions Rolls Out During Lockdown

Spotify is launching a new feature where music lovers can create a group. They are naming the feature as ‘Group session‘ where Premium users will be able to create a unique Spotify code. Once you share the code with your friends and family, they will be able to connect to your playlist. 

NOTE- The feature is available only for premium members. Only premium members can create a unique code and join the group. 

spotify new feature group sessions

The lockdown period amid COVID-19 is extending. People are looking for ways to be creative enough to pass their time. Social media users started participating in challenges on Instagram or Facebook to make the lockdown period less annoying. 

And now, Spotify’s new feature is a piece of good news for audiophiles. Listening to music with a group of people is now possible through Spotify’s Listening Together feature.  

Every user connected to the group will be able to control the music, add new tracks, and have fun together. The changes made in the playlist by any member will be reflected in all the group member’s playlists. The popular music app is allowing music lovers to enjoy an hour or two with their friends.

Spotify has been developing this group music listening feature for the past few months; it’s finally arrived at the perfect time. So now if you are working from home, cooking, napping on the sofa, you can enjoy that time with your music mates. You need to perform the following steps:

  • The ‘Host’ of the playlist has to tap on the ‘Connect’ menu at the bottom left corner.
  • It will generate a scannable code.
  • Your music mates will be able to scan the code and connect to the playlist.
  • After creating a group, anyone can control the playlist, add tracks, and enjoy group music listening.

With this effort, Spotify is hoping to get more people to subscribe to the premium membership. As people are locked in a home due to coronavirus pandemic, group activities such as ‘Group music listening’ could be fun for music lovers.

The only bummer right now is how to scan the code when your friends are not close to the Scannable code of your playlist? Maybe you can allow your friends to scan the code from your Laptop screen by screen sharing on video calls. Or you can share the screenshot of code. 

The feature is perfect for flatmates and families but right now it’s under the beta version (testing phase). In our opinion, Spotify might develop a better and easier way to create a group session.

How To Unfollow Inactive Twitter Accounts Easily- 3 Best Tools

Are inactive twitter profiles and bots making your profile look bad? Then learn how to unfollow inactive Twitter accounts in bulk and add value to your profile. 

When we started using Twitter to promote our blog, initially, we had no idea how to handle a Twitter account like a PRO. We used to follow all our tech fellow bloggers and influencers in the same niche. This eventually increased our following counts and mostly who were inactive in retweeting our post, like or comment. 

We now frequently clean our list using the tool that helps us unfollowing unfollowers in no time. This keeps our profile legit and gets real engagement from targeted audiences to our post than before. 

If you have a small list, you can manually find people not following you back and unfollow them right away with these simple steps:

  • Then click on the following, a list will be open.
  • A profile that follows you will be shown as: “Follows you.”
  • Select from the rest left inactive accounts and unfollow them as per your choice. 

However, with the massive list, it is challenging to unfollow inactive profiles manually.
