Following Russia’s strict anti-terrorism laws which was made in 2016, every messaging services required to provide authorities with the ability to decrypt user messages. Telegram refused to do that saying “At Telegram, we have the luxury of not caring about revenue streams or ad sales. Privacy is not for sale, and human rights should not be compromised out of fear or greed.” Telegram for months has been fighting for its stance in the court with Russia’s telecommunications watchdog Roskomnadzor. The court ruled that telegram should be blocked immediately, and the ban will be in place until Telegram provides decryption keys to the Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB).

Google recently announced that they are working on overhauling Gmail. Giving it new material design makeover, which will look something like this
Today TechCrunch reported that the new gmail will include self-destruct feature.
It appears as a lock icon in compose mail. When activated the recipient would not be able to forward , copy and paste, download or print the email. The expiration date could be in days, weeks or years and after expiration the email would no longer be visible.
The way it works is that when you send someone a confidential email they receive email with a link to locked content.
When the recipient opens the link gmail asks them to login again and then display the email.
Although this is a great feature but it’s unclear if it will work with other email clients as it asks to login with gmail.
Plus it still appears to be a work in progress as TechCrunch was able to take screenshots of a confidential email which shouldn’t happen. We think that Gmail might block screenshots in further update or probably notify sender about it. But still anyone can capture the email in camera and no one will stop you. Image credits : TechCrunch

Instagram added portrait mode called “Focus” in the latest update. You can access it at the bottom of Instagram’s camera. But it won’t work on all Android devices, though. Instagram just says “select” phones.
Portrait mode is becoming increasingly popular and smartphone makers are selling it as a feature. Portrait mode normally needs 2 cameras to sense the depth of object and blur the background. But last year Google showcased how it can be achieved with just one camera on their pixel 2 with ai.
Now Instagram has taken Google’s lead and made portrait mode with similar technology.
