Photo-messaging app Snapchat has updated its camera-equipped “Spectacles” that will allow users to export their videos in square or “widescreen” format, other than its signature circular format.

Users will have to update the Snapchat app to be able to export media within “Memories” by pressing on a “Spectacles Story” and the new format options will then pop up for users to choose from, Engadget reported on Friday.

Earlier, the company chose to export spectacle-videos in circular format, allowing users to rotate their phone to view more of a scene while recording a video.

The circular format kept the videos exclusively to be shared on Snapchat. The added export options will let users share videos outside Snapchat, including on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram.

“Snapchat says it’s making its way to the apps “slowly”, though, so it may take some time before you can try the new formats for yourself,” the report added.

The update will roll out for iOS and Android and apply to both the launched versions of the glasses.

In February, 2017, “Spectacles” became available for purchase online and in April, last year, second-generation of the glasses was launched in lightweight form factor, with water resistance, new colour options, improved video and audio quality and the ability to capture photos. (IANS)

Google Play on Wear OS is slightly better now as the tech giant has given it a design facelift with some refreshing tweaks.

Wear OS or Wear OS by Google, which was previously known as Android Wear has been given a new design as Google attempts to improve it.

Spotted on Reddit and by one of our tipsters, Google appears to have widely rolled out a Play Store update for all Wear OS users. At first glance, it’s not a radical redesign, but it makes a lot of changes for the better.

First, it ditches the pull-down menu that’s been very annoying for quite some time. In the previous design, the menu indicator often covered the search button, 9to5Google reported on Wednesday.

Wear OS users may be able to spot the differences, where they now have My Apps, Accounts, and Settings sections at the bottom of the main page, rather than within a hidden pulldown menu.

The rest of the Play Store for Wear OS doesn’t appear to have changed much. App listings, for example, are basically unchanged, but I think they now have a darker background, the report added. (IANS)
