Snapchat, a popular multimedia messaging platform has faced its fair share of problems previously. The Android version of its application has always been complained about not being on par with the performance of its iOS counterpart.

But Samsung has announced that its flagships running Samsung’s latest OneUI will get an option to remap the infamous Bixby Button.Samsung Bixby Remapping

Recently, the CEO of Twitter Jack Dorsey said on the Joe Rogan Podcast that Twitter is considering adding the functionality of editable tweets.
In his discussion, when asked about the functionality, Rogan said “You could build it as such so maybe we introduce a 5-second to 30-second delay in the sending. And within that window, you can edit. The issue with going longer [...]
Samsung has silently added support to showcase GIFs on its smartphones with Always on Display (AOD).
