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)

Twitter is rolling out an update for iOS users in the US where they can see tweets they care about the most in the search tab via new “sections”.

Currently, the Twitter search tab in the iOS app offers a vertically scrolling list of trending topics.

The users can now move horizontally to view the top news and tweets.

“We added sections so it’s easier for you to see the Tweets you care about the most, starting today in the US,” the company tweeted late on Wednesday.

Twitter has also considering an edit functionality.

Its CEO and co-founder Jack Dorsey, who is in India this week, said on November 12 that the micro-blogging platform has been considering edit button for quite some time but did not reveal any specific timeline.

“A lot of people want the edit button because they want to quickly fix a mistake they made. Like a misspelling or tweeting the wrong URL. That’s a lot more achievable than allowing people to edit any tweet all the way back in time,” Dorsey told the gathering at IIT-Delhi. (IANS)
