Watch out For WhatsApp's Next Update

 WhatsApp's early beta access teases us with upcoming changes that will make the app better to use.

WhatsApp's latest update
WhatsApp


When it comes to messaging apps, WhatsApp continues to reign supreme thanks to the plethora of features that make it perfect for both personal uses as well as for businesses, with a recent rollout offering new features that benefit all users, like dark mode and improved video calls.


And now, it's about to become even more robust with a dynamite set of new features that will make using the app across multiple devices a reality. 


Thanks to WABetaInfo, we have some early information on an upcoming change to the app that will let users access their WhatsApp account on up to four devices simultaneously, rather than having to log in on each new device they switch to; that's the case with the current version which only allows users to have the app up and running on one device at a time.

What's more, messages will sync across all devices the app is in use on in real-time, so there'll be no worrying about missing parts of the conversation as you transition from your phone to your tablet, to your PC, for example. 


It's actually very similar to Apple's Handoff technology in that respect, and given that competing apps like Facebook Messenger currently provide these options, it's long overdue. 


The site also included images from the new UI that shows message synchronisation across devices with end-to-end encryption, as well as a screenshot from the WhatsApp early access beta which shows the setup page for linking multiple devices.

The point to note here is that once it's set up, all of your linked devices will be able to work without a connection to your phone, so if it runs out of battery, you can still freely use the app on your desktop. 


These features are said to be in the final phase of testing, but there's no word on when we might see them get a wider rollout.

HOW TO ENSLAVE A BLACK MAN - 1712 SLAVE-OWNER SPEECH (FULL TEXT)

I don't care to know if this letter/speech was real or not. It doesn't have to be real for the content to be believable. Every day, blacks and Africans seem to be in perpetual slavery. Via the Economy, international politics, diplomacy, civilization and so on, it is increasingly confirmed that we have willingly submitted to slavery. The same principle for taking slaves of individuals in the days of slave trade is still used for taking slaves of entire nations today: 'make the slaves sell themselves to you'. Is this not happening today in Nigeria, South Africa, Ghana, Kenya, Sudan etc? I do wish that Africans will read this letter below. The quote, "if you don't want a n**ger to find a thing, hide it in a book" seems like a stereotype. But it is a verifiable fact. We mostly don't enjoy reading.

Sammie Okposo, Akpororo & A-List Artistes Storm Uyo For Street Gospel 2015

“The Street Gospel Project is basically a concert campaign that drives with content to reach out to people on the streets” says Pastor Runcie Mike, senior pastor of the innovation driven The Evening Church; and convener of the annual Street Gospel concert. The first edition, in 2014, held outdoors at the Ibom Tropicana Resorts. Street Gospel 2015, the sophomore edition is in collaboration with Zamar Entertainment, organizers of Sammie Okposo’s Praise Party - and fields A-list Nigerian international Gospel acts. The concept of reaching out to people on the streets is born out of renewed understanding by the Christian church, especially since the second half of the 20 th century, to keep evangelism in pace with a swift generation, so that the world is perpetually in touch with the gospel of Christ. It has kept an increasing number of Christian denominations reviewing their outreach approaches away from the conformist in search of more efficiency. The Street Gospel Project
