The firm has also already announced the date of presentation of this smartphone. It will indeed be officially unveiled on September 1st. For now, however, it is not known in which markets the phone will be launched.

Facebook Messenger and Instagram: the merger has begun

Already owner of Messenger and Instagram, Facebook has been trying for some time to bring together its various services under the same banner. A novelty has been seen by several Instagram users. In addition to new features such as emojis or new gestures, Instagram also presents an option to “chat with friends who use Facebook”. The symbol for private messages has also been changed to take the form of the Messenger logo. For now, this is a simple test, but we could eventually see more synergy between the various Facebook services.



The Hyundai Kona Electric exceeds 1000 km of autonomy, with a trick
