New York, April 1, 2017: Few days after Facebook got a Snapchat-like “Stories” update that lets users add effects to their photos and videos, Snap Inc has introduced a “Search” option that would give users power to search through the content they posted on its app.

Snapchat will enable users to search for photos and videos known as “Snaps” posted to the “Our Story” option on the app, by creating new “Stories” using machine learning technology, the company said in a blog post on Friday.

For instance, users can use the search feature to find “Snaps” related to events such as local basketball games and topics such as puppies.

The search feature, which was rolled out in some cities on Friday, is an addition to curated “Stories,” where public “Snaps” about major events like Wimbledon or the Coachella music festival already appear.

First introduced by Snapchat, “Our Story” feature is a slideshow of user content that disappears after 24 hours.

Earlier this week, social media giant Facebook gave its users access to the new Facebook Camera feature in its app that lets them add effects to their photos and videos.

NewsGram brings to you top news around the world today.

Facebook-owned Instagram and WhatsApp already got “Stories” update before Facebook rolled it out to its users.

After this update, the Facebook users could now share their content to a Snapchat clone called ‘Facebook Stories’ that appears above News Feed on mobile and works similar to Instagram’s 24-hour slideshows. (IANS)

WhatsApp message to wrong number got this man hitched

Love is beautiful… Perhaps a little more so when someone finds it without putting much of an effort. But can it blossom even from an innocent WhatsApp message sent to a wrong number? Michael Evangelou from Colliers Wood in south London would say ‘yes’.

Evangelou, 44, sent a message, which read “Girls Trip”, to a number he thought was his own as a reminder to see the film at the cinema. It sparked a conversation with a stranger and ultimately led to their marriage, reported on Monday.

The recipient happened to be Lina Dahlbeck, 37, from Morden in south London, who sent a reply reply saying, “Hi! Girls trip? Who’s this please? I’m guessing this was intended for another Lina”.

The pair struck up a conversation as they attempted to figure out exactly what had happened. Despite never meeting, the two chatted for most of the day before arranging to meet for a drink later that night.

“We started chatting back and forth. I think if I wasn’t single I wouldn’t have continued the chat,” Dahlbeck was quoted as saying. And just four hours after that WhatsApp message, they were on a date.

“We were convinced it was fate that had brought us together,” Dahlbeck said. The couple married on December 7 and in March, they are jetting off to Dubai where Dahlbeck aims to launch a make-up school.

“Most of our friends thought we were a bit nuts,” Dahlbeck said, adding that parents of both of them were delighted at the prospect of marriage. The couple insists that their story is a lesson to others not to give up on love.

“I had given up on love and then Michael sent that message and literally landed in my life,” Dahlbeck added. “My story gives hope to everyone: never give up,” she added. IANS
