HI-TECH NEWS with #Android app hashtag

Even though there are millions of quality apps available through the Google Play Store, they can't obviously be shown to the user all at once. This is why Google has put together a content discovery system that takes into account the number of installs and user ratings when ranking an Android app. The goal is to showcase the most trusted and innovative apps first.

Prefer video calls over voice? Is WhatsApp your favorite way to keep in touch? Then we've got good news for you.

The billion-user chat app is pushing video calls live in its Android app, as spotted by Android Police. 

There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to the roll out - some users are getting it in recent beta versions while others aren't. Updating the app doesn't manifest the video chat function, and if the person on the other end doesn't have it enabled, they'll just see a voice call. 

Instagram Tests Multiple Account Support

According to Android Police, Instagram has added support to manage multiple accounts through its Android app. For now the feature appears to be limited to some Android users who are using 7.12.0 version of the app. The feature lets to switch between accounts easily without a necessity for multiple logging in.

For the common users this might not be a big deal but for social media managers, business owners, PR-managers this is a major improvement as it allows to avoid awkward moments of adding private photos to work-related accounts. The new test version for Android is available at Google Play.
