The popular Facebook app was updated again in the Play Store. This update brings about nice little enhancements like faster image loading, I personall haven't noticed the big difference, but the biggest change comes with the ability to send voice messages to friends.

 

Sending voice message instead text message really make easiler for folks who aren't very fast at keyboard typing on the small device, including myself. One other feature is the ability to share your friends' stories to timelines, pages and groups.


What's in this version:


• Open and view photos faster
• Share your friends' stories to timelines, pages and groups
• Send voice messages when you have more to say

Facebook has been under intense pressure to take over the phones of the users. This is evidenced by Chat Heads, Facebook Home, Messenger Apps and official updates. It has even gone further and started offering full voice calls for free to the Messenger users in the United States. This same feature was last month offered to Canadians. The service requires that Facebook messenger should be naturally installed. If you want to initiate call, you simply have to head in to the list of contacts, open a message, and then hit "I" which is at the top right corner. Once you have done this, you will see "Free Call" option in the list.


The user can receive call for free if the "Free Call" is white. If it is gray, that is an indication that your friend cannot receive calls. This new feature which does not require update of applications should at the present be rolling out to the users.

Google Glass has received its sofware update code-name XE7, features including a boost of web browsing abilities, touch sensitivity, and oodles of sharing, in my opinion most exciting in very basic way - is the ability to browse the web.


While last month and the XE6 update improved the camera, added HDR, and slightly touched on voice controls. Today's update is much bigger while also addressing a few key limitations the wearable initially had. That being easy calling and messaging, web browsing, and full Google contact list support. We already received it today. Excellent stuff Google!


With XE4 and 5 improving battery life, XE6 fixing the camera, and now XE7 working on web browsing and voice commands it's obvious that Google is hard at work with Glass. 



Here's the full change log.
