    Here we are yet again with another WhatsApp Messenger update to test out thoroughly. This particular beta brings many changes to the way emojis look and fixes sticker related issues that were appearing for some users using prior versions of the app.

    Redesigned emojis

    The total number of redesigned emojis is 373 and all of them have some minor, but still noticeable tweaks. For example, some of them now have lighter shadows, brighter highlights, different colors and object alignments. All of these changes result in overall more pleasing, though flat-looking emojis.

    Pocket Casts is my favorite podcast app available on Android ever. Earlier though, its user interface was lackluster, but now with the release of version 7.0 for all beta testers, my emotions about it changed completely. The UI/UX became a lot more modernized and at a top-notch level, so here comes time to make other crucial adjustments before v7finally goes official. The latest beta update with build number 1634 that popped up on the Play Store brings along the following changes:

    In the beginning, Instagram was a platform focused primarily on sharing images and videos, though in the past couple of years it evolved a lot and became a messaging app too, sort of. After multiple updates so far, everything that is necessary for a user has been crammed in one place so you get the best of both worlds, even video calling. As they continue to borrow features from other messaging apps like Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and Telegram, the latest addition this time are voice notes.

    Changelog

    Introducing Voice Messaging

    In any message thread, tap and hold the microphone icon to start recording a voice message. Release your finger to send.

    Portrait mode, 'Charms', and numerous other features and changes that Snapchat has been working on

    Snapchat.Inc has been working on a fair amount of new features for their Android app that we will share with you, besides the minor user interface tweaks that have been thrown in. We got our hands on some details about some of the upcoming changes that will eventually come to all users.

    Portrait mode

    There is not a lot of info, but guessing from the screenshots leaked on the Internet, portrait mode in Snapchat will allow you to blur the background portion behind a person on a photo, or either apply a color gradient effect.

    Gridlines, timer, and batch capture mode

    These new modes will be very easy to access and toggle on and off right from the camera UI, just like the portrait mode. Also, batch capture mode is just a renamed version of the standard burst mode that we are all familiar with as it has been available in many camera apps for decades so far.
