This new Facebook app is a treat for rappers

All the rappers have a reason to rejoice as the American social networking service company has announced to launch its' experimental 'rap' application on Saturday (local time).

According to Tech Crunch, the new app named 'BARS' app, created by Facebook's internal RandD group- NPE Team will allow the rappers to select track beats from professionally created music on the application's platform.

The users will then be able to create and share their own raps and videos on the platform.

The application will also have a feature of auto-tune and will even suggest rhymes for the lyrics.

This new experimental app will mark as the second musical effort from Facebook's NPE team after its music video app 'Collab'.

Tech Crunch quoted that this initiative by the social media giant company can be an attempt to launch a 'Tik Tok' competitor in the market.

The new app 'BARS' will be available in the iOS App Store in the US, while Facebook is suspected to slowly roll out the application for other users also.

Twitter is testing new e-commerce features to integrate product details

Microblogging and social networking service Twitter has now started testing its new e-commerce tweet layouts, with at least one user of its Android application in Qatar spotting the new format. According to Tech Crunch, Matt Navarra, who is a UK-based social media consultant first spotted this new change and shared images credited to Yasser Masood that contrasted the simpler existing "link" sharing card with the upgraded shopping card. This new shopping card, which takes up a little more space in the feed, is a big blue "Shop" button, presumably colour-customisable along with other profile features, extending further than the current design. The card also appears to display the price pulled from the product page. As per Twitter, the test "is the first of many experiments in the Commerce space and [the company] will enrich the experience as we learn more." Mashable reported that Twitter is expanding features and format options for a number of different types of users. This includes the introduction of Facebook-like business profiles with integrated maps and Super Follows, which will allow the users to charge their followers for exclusive content.

Here's what users can face after not accepting WhatsApp's new privacy policy

After facing backlash from users over the new privacy policy, the American messaging service WhatsApp has come up with a list of details of changes that a user could face after ignoring its terms by the May 15 deadline. According to Tech Crunch, WhatsApp has detailed what will happen to users who won't agree to new privacy changes through a mail which explains that it will slowly ask such users to comply with the new terms in order to have full functionality of WhatsApp till May 15. The Tech Crunch reported that the short time of asking users to comply with the norms would span ahead for a few weeks and for the inactive users, its policy will apply after May 15. Usually, according to the WhatsApp policy, the accounts of inactive users get deleted automatically after 120 days of inactivity. Recently, the instant messaging service received heavy backlash from a portion of its clients, most of which were from its greatest market - India. Following this, a month ago after an in-application alert, they notified that the users have February 8 as the last date to consent to the planned security terms, which are being made to mirror its new drive into internet business.
