WhatsApp Announces New Features

WhatsApp Announces New Features For Groups, Including Emoji Reactions, File Sharing And Larger Voice Calls.

Based on how frequent people use WhatsApp, the instant messaging app considering how best it can help people have the next best thing to an in-person conversation, is adding five major updates that will be rolled out in the coming weeks.

A list of new features WhatsApp has announced

  • Reactions – Emoji reactions are coming to WhatsApp so people can quickly share their opinion without flooding chats with new messages.
  • Admin Delete – Group admins will be able to remove errant or problematic messages from everyone’s chats.
  • File Sharing – We’re increasing file sharing to support files up to 2 gigabytes so people can easily collaborate on projects. 
  • Larger Voice Calls – We’ll introduce one-tap voice calling for up to 32 people with all new design for those times when talking live is better than chatting.

  • Communities – Communities on WhatsApp will enable people to bring together separate groups under one umbrella to better organize conversations. People can receive updates sent to the entire Community and easily organise smaller discussion groups. Communities will also contain new tools for admins, including announcement messages that are sent to everyone and control over which groups can be included.

“Close-knit groups – schools, members of a religious congregation, even businesses – need to be able to have secure and private conversations without WhatsApp monitoring their every word,” the company said in a statement.

For example, a school principal can bring all parents together to share must-read updates and set up groups about specific classes, extracurricular activities or volunteer needs. The company said it is also making improvements to how groups work on WhatsApp, whether or not they are part of a Community.

WhatsApp has been part of our daily lives ever since it was launched in 2009.

Caitlyn Jenner opened up about Kim Kardashian‘s romantic relationships as a guest on The Pivot Podcast on Tuesday (May 24), and shared her thoughts about her former stepdaughter’s estranged husband Kanye West and her current boyfriend Pete Davidson.

“He was very difficult to live with,” Jenner said of West, though she added that the rapper supported her when she transitioned back in 2015.

“Actually, I’m really into Pete right now with Kim,” she shifted gears, talking about the SNL star’s growing relationship with Kardashian. “We have a comedian in the family. Yay! We don’t need more rappers. We need a comedian in the family.”

Kardashian began dating Davidson in the fall, soon after she hosted Saturday Night Liveand nearly a year after she filed for divorce from Ye. The former couple, who tied the knot in May 2014, share four children: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.

Jenner shared that she ended up meeting the 28-year-old comedian when the Skims founder brought him to the former Olympian’s Malibu home recently. “[Davidson is] very different than what she would normally date, but Kimberly has been through a lot with the guys she’s been with, especially Kanye,” she said. “Pete is 180 degrees in the other direction. First of all, he treats her so well, and when they were over here, Kim [was] so happy, and Kim deserves to be happy.”

TMZ Files Emergency Motion To Block Its Former Reporter From Testifying For Johnny Depp

The celebrity tabloid TMZ filed an emergency motion to block testimony by its former reporter who appeared on Johnny Depp’s list of anticipated witnesses for today.

“Journalists’ promises of confidentiality are vital to reporting the news,” TMZ’s attorneys wrote in a 7-page motion. “That is why the law strongly protects the ability of journalists to keep their promises. The Court should permit TMZ to keep the promise it made here.”

Morgan Tremaine, formerly of the celebrity tabloid, appeared on a list of anticipated witnesses before Depp’s rebuttal case began on Tuesday, in the actor’s defamation suit against his ex-wife Amber Heard.

“With this motion, TMZ seeks a protective order precluding Plaintiff from eliciting or Mr. Tremaine from disclosing TMZ’s privileged information during the testimony,” the emergency motion states. “TMZ is uncertain whether Mr. Tremaine is appearing pursuant to a trial subpoena. If he is, TMZ likewise requests that the Court quash the subpoena.”

Known for celebrity-related exclusives—even getting first wind of actress Betty White’s death this past New Year’s Eve—TMZ says in their motion that they got unpleasantly scooped on Tremaine’s anticipated testimony by Radar Online.

“According to the Radar Online report, [Depp] plans to elicit testimony from Mr. Tremaine regarding TMZ’s confidential source in an effort to ‘impeach’ the credibility of [Heard],” the motion states. “Mr. Tremaine was a field assignment manager with TMZ at the time the article was published, but no longer works for the company.”

During Heard’s testimony, she denied leaking a video of Depp yelling at her to TMZ, which claims that Tremaine has no knowledge about the source of the footage.

Depp and Heard’s trial has been taking place in a courthouse in Fairfax County, Va., where TMZ claims that state law protects journalistic privilege.

“Virginia courts recognize a privilege, rooted in the First Amendment, protecting the relationship between journalists and their confidential sources and preventing those confidential sources from being outed in discovery or at trial,” the motion states.

So does California law, TMZ notes, describing the Golden State as the site of their original newsgathering. The website notes that the evidence that Depp seeks would not appear to advance his defamation case, other than to attempt to undermine Heard’s credibility.

“Here, it appears that Plaintiff seeks TMZ’s confidential source information purely for purposes of impeaching the credibility of Defendant and not because the information has anything directly to do with the elements of the underlying defamation case,” the motion states. “As noted , an effort to obtain impeachment evidence for its own sake is insufficient to overcome the privilege, and the question of who provided a leaked tape to TMZ is irrelevant to the elements of defamation. The identity of TMZ’s source has no bearing on whether, for example, the statements Plaintiff is challenging are substantially true or whether Defendant acted with the requisite degree of fault.”

Depp’s lawsuit against Heard stems from a 2018 Washington Post op-ed under her byline. The editorial said that Heard “became a public figure representing domestic abuse” two years ago, when she publicly accused Depp of intimate partner violence in filing a restraining order. Heard countersued after Depp’s attorney Adam Waldman characterized her allegations as a “hoax.”

Depp’s rebuttal trial continues on today, when his supermodel ex-girlfriend Kate Moss is expected to testify.
