Gmail is helping you clean your inbox and Facebook Messenger now supports Android Wear. Sprint is also making some huge changes.
Gmail is becoming much more integrated with other services, and not only in a systematic way. Gmail can look through your content and offer you suggestions and other services based on the information your emails provide. The latest Gmail feature is actually quite simple.
The Search Giant has added a way for users to easily unsubscribe from email services. The link will appear right next to the sender’s information, making it easy to find a link that would otherwise be a bit hidden. Of course, the link doesn’t just appear for every email. The email has to have an unsubscribe option somewhere in its contents.
Opinion: As Gmail becomes more aware of your contents, its functionality keeps increasing. This is only a small example of what it can do, but there are some amazing features out there.
Everyone is joining the Android Wear party and Facebook is not walking into the room empty-handed. The new update to Facebook Messenger brings the app to version 9, giving it Android Wear capabilities.
Aside from reading your messages, users can reply via voice. Many users will also have the ability to send a thumbs up reply and mute notifications.
Opinion: The new features are simple and direct, just the way Android Wear support should be. Go ahead and update your Facebook Messenger app if you haven’t!
Yesterday’s rumors said Sprint was no longer interested in acquiring T-Mobile, but another bit of news revealed the 3rd top US carrier was to retire Dan Hesse and bring in a new CEO. The news has panned out to be 100% true as Sprint announces a new President and CEO this morning.
Marcelo Claure is to take the high position at Sprint’s HQ. Claure is known as the founder of Brightstar, a company that was acquired by Softbank last year.
Opinion: Dan Hesse was a strong CEO, but he could only take the company so far in this competitive market. Maybe Marcelo can bring a more fresh approach and bring the once-popular network back to action.
