Skype Can Now Translate Video Calls!

When you actually stop and think about it for a moment, a service like Skype is pretty amazing. It doesn’t matter where you are in the world, Skype allows you to share a video call with any other user.

We’ve used it for so long we’ve probably gotten a little used to it, but the technology behind it really is incredible. And now, it’s about to get even better. On 12/15/14, they released a preview of a new feature called Skype Translator, and it does just what it sounds like it should do – it translates video calls if the callers are speaking different languages. And it’s not something that just came out of nowhere – it’s the culmination of a ton of work over the past several years.

In the preview version, it worked with English and Spanish speakers. Skype hears the callers speaking, translates their words into text, and then audibly speaks the text into the correct language for the other person in real time. And here’s a neat fact: each person will hear the text in the correct accent of the other speaker.

It is hopeful that this service will be especially beneficial to schools all over the world.

It’s unknown when the final version of the software will be available, but I wouldn’t think it would take too awfully long. What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below!

WhatsApp on Web soon?

The popular cross-platform mobile messaging tool WhatsApp has made a mark in the smartphone arena and now the service is planning to make its grip on the web platform as well. If the rumours are to be believed, WhatsApp may soon come up with a web version of its widely-accepted messaging app.
As per a report by, the screenshot of the HTML programme above encodes word ‘WhatsApp Web’. In addition to that, the code also embeds logging into a web service and checking online status, the later feature is seen on the mobile version. However, there is no definite evidence in support to the report, and an official announcement from the largest mobile service is still awaited.

In today’s day, where everything is about seamless interconnectivity between web and mobile, WhatsApp shouldn’t remain constricted to smartphones.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp is the only popular messaging service which doesn’t have a web version. Its competition such as Line, Viber, Telegram and WeChat allow users to text both via phone and web. With a user base of over 600 million, the tool definitely needs a web version.

Facebook Preparing a Social Network For Business in 2015

Facebook has over 1.3 billion people on the social network, but the amount of time spent on Facebook is less than ideal — at only 40 minutes per day — it drags behind other social services. One of the reasons for the low average user time may be the fact Facebook is blocked at work. Most companies block Facebook from being accessed, to stop time wasted on the social networking platform.

However, Facebook wants to enter the workplace, with a new work service. CEO Mark Zuckerberg is apparently working on the project with a team at Facebook, creating a service to rival LinkedIn and get the social network unbanned from the workplace. Facebook at Work would have a few similarities to the regular Facebook service, but would focus on calendar updates, quick messages and separate work-friends from others.
