:::A new series of 4K smart LED Android TV has been launched by Haier in the Indian market.
Haier has launched a new S8 series of its 4K smart LED Android TV across the country. The new series of the 4K TV offers two models namely Haier LE55S8 HQGA and Haier LE65S8 HQGA priced at ₹1,10,990/- and ₹1,39,990/- respectively. The smart TV has 6-30W front speakers and it runs on the Android 9.0 version along with great support to its AI tools. The build-in Google Chromecast is supported by the navigation features of Google Assistant. The remote of the smart TV is equipped with Bluetooth 5.0. It responds to all the voice commands that a user gives. A user can also navigate the smart TV by using the Android TV mobile application which can be downloaded from Google Play Store. Some additional features of the new Haier S8 4K smart LED Android TV are build-in Wi-Fi, 2 USB Ports, and hotkeys for Netflix & YouTube.
:::Telegram 8.0, an updated version of the instant messaging app, has been launched.
The biggest update is related to its feature of Livestream. Earlier, only a limited number of users could join a Livestream session. The updated version of Telegram will let an unlimited number of users join the Livestream session. The company has removed the cap from the number of users that can participate in a live session. It has been made better by offering an option to the users of raising their hands. A hand can be raised during a group video call as well. A broadcast session can now be joined at any time, provided the host approves the request. On the fun side, Telegram will now start suggesting stickers to its users based on the ones that are trending on the internet. Users would still be able to choose a sticker of their choice. Telegram had a fun run on Google's Wear OS. The statement might have given you a hint but here's a clarification. Telegram has removed its support for Google's Wear OS in the updated version of Telegram 8.0. The app is now unavailable on Google Play Store for download on Wear OS. Two more changes that the users would come across are better ways to forward a message with an option to hide the name of the original sender & check the preview before forwarding the message, and visibility of the live activity of another user in a conversation. Live activity refers to ...is typing a message or ...is recording audio, or ...is selecting a sticker.
That is all for this week.
