Update

BBM timed messages, message retraction now on subscription

Blackberry may not be the most popular kid in the block, but it still commands a loyal following from a certain group of people, particularly for its Blackberry Messenger or BBM.

The bad news is that some features that were previously free are now removed and instead, put in a subscription service.

Facebook now lets you do video calls via Messenger

Facebook seems to be giving its messaging service Messenger a lot of power lately.

The social media giant wants to keep it at par with a lot of messaging services in the market, particularly its erstwhile rival, Apple, whose Hangouts is one of the most widely used free video call services (known as FaceTime).

Twitter Highlights gives you the best tweets that you may have missed

Twitter is a really great source of news, useless information, new online discoveries, and yes, even conversations with friends. But with the amount of people that you follow, and with the limited amount of time (we assume) that you have for checking on your various social networks, some things may be lost in the void. Twitter is introducing a new feature called Highlights that will make you get the best out of the micro-blogging site and it is also personalized according to what you need or want to see.

Outlook for Android is not on Preview mode anymore

After a few months of being available on Android but still not being on full mode, the Outlook email app is now finally out of the "preview zone". Since its debut in January, they have updated it 17 times, which is a lot in a span of four months. Apparently now, Microsoft is confident enough to remove the preview label and go full blast with the Android version.
