As the ‘New Normal’ has brought the Work From Home culture, video calling app Zoom saw a sharp upward shooting trajectory in its demand curve.
The flourishing company in order to combat the need for official meetings brought several features in its app which eventually were adopted by big names of the technological industries and now to make your Work From Home scene even simpler, Zoom will be running on your smart home display as part of ‘Zoom for Home’ program. It will give you easy access to video meetings by operating with just a touch of a button or the sound of your voice.
Zoom will arrive on smart displays like Amazon Echo Show, Portal from Facebook, and Google Nest Hub Max and will help you stay connected to your office colleagues, friends and family in a hassle freeway.
Zoom on Portal will be available in September while it is set to enter the Amazon Echo Show and Google Nest Hub Max in late fall of 2020.

On the other hand, sharing posts and stories with friends is the new level of friendship. The only form of communication, most of the friends have these days is laughing at memes they share with one another but sometimes one can get annoyed with the fact that their pal doesn’t follow the same pages as them on Instagram.
To help you out, now Instagram will let you know if your friends actually follow that page or if it’s a private page for them before you hit the send button and slide the meme into their DM.
No more accidentally sharing private posts to your friends in DMs. 🙅♀️
With this new feature out now, you can tell who can or can’t see a private post or story before you hit send. pic.twitter.com/yPqJjpczDd
