WhatsApp continues to grind record numbers and to say it is the platform itself that announces the record of 2 billion active users. Incredible numbers that clearly make the app among the most used in the world and in terms of messaging certainly the most used. The numbers probably highlight the improvement work that the developers are carrying out in the code by introducing week after week novelties capable of making the application more user friendly. An attention that clearly pleases users who decide to reward the app by using it more than others both in general and in this field.

 

Dark mode coming soon

After repeated experimental versions, the new Dark Theme publicly arrived on WhatsApp a few weeks ago. In this case the users who can use it daily are only those with the Beta version by installing an APK. How does it work? Basically, users can activate the new mode directly from the settings of the application itself in the “Theme” section. Here three distinct options will appear: Light, Dark and Energy Saving, which will guarantee energy savings by proposing a color with gray tones rather than completely black.

The Best Video Player (software) for PC

The Best Videoplayer for PC

01 VLC [win+linux+mac]

vlcplayer

It is by far the best video player for windows. For windows it is almost a necessity to have it installed. In addition to recognizing noisy files and having advanced video controls, it allows you to record video clips with just two clicks: by clicking on rec at the beginning and end of the instant you wish.

02 MPC HC

mpc-hc player

It is the best alternative to VLC. It is very light, has many functions and recognizes many video formats. It is included in the codec installation package. It is obviously present only for windows.

04 SMS PLAYER [win+linux+mac]

smsplayerBest

It is the best alternative to VLC after MPC. It can also be installed on MAC and LINUX. I don’t really like graphics, but it has many features and controls for the video.

03 MPV [win+linux+mac]

mpvplayer

It supports a large number of video formats. It does not require installation and is very light even due to a defect: it does not have a real graphic interface but a small bar is displayed when the mouse cursor moves.

05 WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER

WhatsApp: unlocking with fingerprints on Android coming

WhatsApp will introduce fingerprint authentication to block access to content to unauthorized persons.

The WhatsApp Beta Info site has found how the beta version 2.19.221 supports the new feature but it is necessary to reinstall the application if it is not shown. If it is visible, you will have to wait before you can use it.

To activate this feature you will need to go to: settings -> account -> privacy. Among the options that will be available in WhatsApp there will be the choice to block the app immediately, after 1 minute or 30 minutes. Furthermore it will be possible to choose whether or not to show information in notifications.

It is not clear when fingerprint unlocking will arrive officially and for everyone on Android. The latest information in this regard dates back to January 2019, but now we are very near to the release date of the whatsapp version for all users. The only condition is to have a fingerprint reader on the smartphone.
