Nov 26, 2016: With the roll-out of a new update, Facebook-owned photo-sharing app Instagram will now notify your friends when you take a screenshot of their Direct Messages (DM) – just like its rival Snapchat, a media report said.

However, the notifications are only for the new disappearing message feature, Mashable reported.

To use the new feature, a user can swipe right into the camera to take a photo or video, then tap the arrow to send it privately.

NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.

A user can choose a group or create one in just a few taps – and can also send to individual friends at the same time.

According to Instagram’s statement, “Unlike other messages in Direct, these photos and videos disappear from your friends’ inboxes after they have seen them. And you will see if they replayed it or took a screenshot.”

Also, you can take a screenshot of your feed and Instagram will pop a new window down saying, “You can share this post with your friends” – offering a user a few ways to officially share the image if you tap the button. (IANS)

Google is adding a new feature to its Assistant that lets people send reminders to their friends and family on phones or Google Home devices.

The feature is designed mostly for families and it would function via the Family Group feature so that the parents can send reminders to their children or spouse and the reminder will pop up on the mobile phone or Google Assistant-powered Smart Display, The Verge reported on Thursday.

For children under 13 to use assignable reminders, they must be granted access to the Assistant on Google Home by adults in the household and all users could block someone from sending them Assignable Reminders.

The read-aloud feature is particularly useful when users are driving, cooking or otherwise have their hands full.

In addition, users can also create a reminder for anyone who has their account linked to the same smart display or speaker.
