WhatsApp introduces new privacy updates
After rolling out interesting updates for the group calls, WhatsApp is now bringing new privacy updates for the users. Now the users will get options to hide not only their status but their profile picture from some selected people as well. Earlier we had the option to hide our profile picture or status from everyone or unknown contacts by opting for the ‘Nobody’ section. The same could have been done for status privacy as well. However, with the new update, users would be able to have more control over their privacy.
Reportedly, the updated tab will now feature four main options: Everyone, My Contacts, My contacts except, and Nobody options. Users can simply go for the one they like. They can select the ‘My Contacts Except’ options to hide their profile image and last seen from some specific contacts they like. The feature is available for both iOS and Android users and will be rolled out soon to everyone.

Google to add a new picture-in-picture mode for Meet
The tech giant Google has announced that the platform will introduce new functionality for its Meet app. Google will allow the users to pin multiple video feeds while being on a video conference the whole time. Reportedly, the latest update will let the users see four video tiles during a meeting as it appears in a floating window.
Additionally, it’s very simple to Enable the new picture-in-picture mode in the app. Users on a Google Meet call can right-click during the conference and select “Open picture-in-picture”. The video call window pops out immediately without the need for secondary extension support. The feature was first announced back in March, although it seems it has taken some time to finally arrive. With Google Meet, it appears the feature is more readily accessible on Chrome by default, which is pretty convenient, the report mentioned.
