WhatsApp beta update introduces mute button

WhatsApp is working on a couple of new features – a new ‘Mute’ and ‘Mark as Read’ button for all users having the latest WhatsApp beta version. The new mute button is different from the earlier mute option in a way that it emerges on the message notification automatically once you receive more than 51 messages from one contact. The new mute shortcut was seen in an update that was submitted through the Google play Beta Program, bringing the version up to 2.18.216 version.

As reports suggest, the mute feature will allow the users to mute chats by simply long pressing and selecting the mute option. This means that user will no longer have to open the application and can directly access the feature from the control panel. This significantly reduces the number of clicks/taps required to execute the desired functionality – something that was Steve Jobs’ mantra while reviewing any new feature developed by Apple, seamlessly binding smooth front-end user-interface with back-end program efficiency.

Though the mute button is now live for everyone using the latest WhatsApp beta version on their Android devices, the ‘Mark as Read’ button that was spotted alongside the ‘Mute’ button last week has not been released even for beta testers. WhatsApp is also bringing a sticker preview. Whatsapp media announcements also posted some screenshots of the upcoming WhatsApp Stickers pack and it looks like there will be at least two sticker packs that will come preloaded with the app update. It is currently unclear when WhatsApp Stickers would roll out to beta users, if not to the users of the stable build. Apart from these features, there are some other new features as well for groups that Whatsapp has rolled out.

All the updates and newly added features make Whatsapp retain its leadership position in the highly competitive sphere of instant messaging since it was founded in 2009 by Brian Acton and Jan Koum, both former employees of Yahoo!.

Cristiano Ronaldo discloses why he left Real Madrid for Juventus

It has been more than two decades since the Italian club Juventus won a Champions League title. And the record signing of Cristiano Ronaldo by the Serie A title holders intends to work towards achieving the European title. Ronaldo himself quoted, “…my move from Real Madrid was a well thought out decision… I did not want to stay in my comfort zone after winning three straight European Cups with Real (Madrid)” and the Portugal forward aims to help his new club continue their winning streak in the domestic Italian league (Serie A), and also get their hands on European trophies as well.

Ronaldo joined the Italian champions on a 100-million-euros-worth four-year contract ($117.07 million) after he left Los Blancos as their all-time top scorer with 451 goals in all competitions and won two titles and four Champions League trophies over nine years!

In a news conference Ronaldo said, “I’m a person who likes to think about the present. I’m still very young and I always liked the challenges, from Sporting, to Manchester (United), to Real (Madrid) and now Juventus. It was a well-thought-out decision. It is the best club in Italy. It has an outstanding manager and coaches so it was not a difficult decision to take. I am very ambitious and I like new challenges. I hope everything will go very well. Luck always helps but you have to look for it.

Ronaldo also said he was grateful for the opportunity to represent Juventus, admitting players of his age usually settle for a move to less competitive leagues in Qatar or China. Ronaldo said one of the factors in joining Juventus was the standing ovation given to him by the Turin club’s fans on his last visit, when he scored an astonishing overhead kick for Real in the Champions League quarter-finals. “It was a really stunning moment for me,” he added. “Being welcomed this way is so rewarding. It increases your motivation to start a new adventure.

The signing of the five-times world player of the year and Champions League top scorer for the last six seasons is a major upheaval for Juventus, who have lifted the Italian league title for the last seven seasons but have not won Europe’s top prize since 1996.

Ronaldo’s objective remained clear in his interviews to the media, “We are going to fight not only for the Champions League but for the Serie A title. We know competition will be tough but we must stay concentrated. I hope I can help Juventus win it (the Champions League). They couldn’t win (last year) because even when you get to the final nothing is written. I hope I can be the lucky star of this club but we will see what happens.

Ronaldo scored twice when Real beat Juventus 4-1 in the 2017 Champions League final in between triumphs over Atletico Madrid and Liverpool in Europe’s elite club competition. The Portugal captain took his goal scoring form to the World Cup in Russia and netted four times but failed to lead the European champions beyond the last-16 stage.
