Twitter is now introducing the ability to schedule tweets from the web. This is currently available as a popular feature in the standalone Tweetdeck app and now the microblogging platform is looking to expand to the wider Twitter user base.

The new feature could be handy to prep tweets for a coordinated product launch or news announcement, for example. If you’re part of the experiment, you’ll be able to schedule a tweet right from the compose window, The Verge reported on Wednesday.

Given that Twitter has said it’s only “experimenting” with the feature, for now, there’s no way to know when — or if — it’ll be available to all users.

Hopefully, Twitter does roll it out more broadly, though, and perhaps the company will bring tweet scheduling to its mobile apps someday, too, the report added. (IANS)

Google has introduced a new feature ‘Focus Mode’ for Android devices designed to prevent its users from being consistently distracted by their smartphone.

The feature allows users to turn off distractions – like social media updates or email notifications – for a period of time, so a user can get things done without interruption.

Focus mode was first announced at Google’s developer conference in the summer as part of Android Q/10.

“Focus mode is a new Digital Wellbeing tool on Android, now out of beta, that helps you get things done by temporarily pausing apps so you can focus on the task at hand. You can select apps you currently find distracting (like social media or games) and if you try to open them, Focus mode will remind you that app is paused.
