While the feature can be seen on the call tab option, the feature is yet to be fully operational. WhatsApp has presently opened up the lines for video calling, albeit on the beta users’ smartphones. However, the feature seems to be in testing mode at present as beta users are also seeing the feature being switched on, and off, frequently. Similar to when voice calling was enabled, video calling can be seen enabled when the servers on the WhatsApp end are working for the test phase.

Whatsapp video calling

WhatsApp is certainly one of the buzzwords in the instant messaging domain; the Facebook-owned app has been creating massive ripples by introducing all new features for its one-billion+ user base.

After months of being in news, video calling finally comes to WhatsApp. You can now video call your friends and relatives with WhatsApp;s new beta version No.2.16.80. However, since it is beta and available to only testers we are showing how you can get the APK ahead of everybody else.

You can download the beta version of WhatsApp video calling APK file from here. The beta version has the video calling feature live on it, but it isn’t functional just yet. The app is available to beta testers from Google Play’s beta testing program but you would be among the first ones to get it once WhatsApp decides to implement it.

While the video calling mode can be seen after tapping the ‘call’ button, the final working feature is yet to be fully operational for all users. We expect the feature to be rolled out very soon. WhatsApp did the same when the voice calling option was enabled for beta testers. The video calling feature is presently in test mode, where WhatsApp developers are constantly testing with beta users for optimising the data usage over the internet. They want to make sure that the video and voice over the internet data are smooth and there is no lag or drops, apart from compressing and encrypting the data.

WhatsApp free calling became an instant favourite as soon among the users, helping them reduce costs while making calls over long distances. It was one of the first platforms which offered internet-based calling to such a large user-base.

Building up from the success of its recent endeavours such as the controversial encryption feature, formatting options, and desktop app, users can expect this feature to be usually good and effective.

Let’s hear in the comments below if it’s working for you. Cheers!!

WhatsApp For Desktop

Yes! Finally WhatsApp creates a desktop client for its app. Now you can enjoy the full benefits of using a desktop interface for all your chats. No more need for Bluestacks!

Requirements:

  • WhatsApp installed on your phone
  • Windows 8 and higher (32 bit and 64 bit)
  • Mac OS X 10.9 and higher

It’s pretty easy to set up. It works in the same way as the Web version. Only that instead of scanning a QR code in your browser, this time around you scan the code within the Desktop app. It requires that you have WhatsApp installed on your phone (obviously).

Just head to the WhatsApp download page to download for your Operating System. For now it supports Windows and Mac. Choose your preferred OS and download. Afterwards, run the setup file to install on your computer. Done!

How to Install Android on Any Computer With Remix OS
How to Install Android on Any Computer With Remix OS 1004 520 geniustechhub

In the world of computing, everyone has come to love android. (I know I have). Android powers most of the world’s devices today: from smartphones, tablets, smart watches, cars, TVs and finally  to PCs and Mac.

This new innovation has been made possible by jide, the group behind the Android for PC revolution.

Remix OS

This new OS is called Remix OS. It’s quite easy to install the Remix OS. In this tutorial, we’ll show how it’s done on a Windows PC, running Windows 10. The Remix OS supports Windows versions from 7 upwards.

 

Remix-OS-2.0-Beta

Download links are provided at the end of this post.

Procedure

It takes about 20 minutes to complete the whole installation (depending on your PC speed).
So the first step is to download the installation file from the official site here. You can either run it as a live installation on your USB drive or install it straight to your computer’s hard drive.

After downloading the installation file, extract it to a folder of your choice, then run the installation. It’s just as installing a normal Windows program. You can choose the drive to install it to as well.

 

rem

 

It also creates an option for uninstalling the OS in case you decide to. The process is pretty easy. Once you are done installing it to your PC’s drive, just reboot it. When the PC boots, the Remix starts to configure itself, which takes sometime to complete. Just relax and wait for it to finish up. Afterwards, it will reboot again.

On the boot-up screen, you’ll be presented with the option to choose which OS to boot. In case you don’t get this option by default, you can press any of these keys (F9, F12). The actual key will depend on your computer model though. So do find out from your device’s website.

From here, you are almost done. Just follow the on-screen instructions to complete the whole setup process.

Another cool thing is that it supports file explorer, so you can hook up your external drive and view your media files straight away.

Instagram Now Supports Multiple Accounts
Instagram Now Supports Multiple Accounts 720 720 geniustechhub

During this past week, Instagram started rolling out an update for the app which allows users to have multiple accounts on one device. This comes as a great feature for bloggers and people who handle various accounts. You may have to update to the latest version from the Play Store or App Store to see this update.

Essentially, you’ll see an option to add an extra account when you go to the settings menu.

image

Tapping on this takes you to the log in screen where you can either enter the details of your other existing account, or create a new one.

image

After successfully logging in, you should now see a button at the lower right bottom of the app. Press and hold this button to reveal the option to switch between accounts.

Alternatively, you can find this option in the upper left corner on your profile page.

I especially like this one as it’s a bit more easier. In case you’re unable to see the new feature, simply go to your phone settings, all apps and force stop the Instagram app. This worked for most users. Let’s hear in the comments what worked for you.

So there you have it. No need to worry about installing multiple Instagram apps (like I have). Just switch through multiple accounts with ease.

How To Flash Any Samsung Phone
How To Flash Any Samsung Phone 600 315 geniustechhub

Flashing a Samsung phone/device is easier than most phones. This is because Samsung provides their own software that can be used to flash all their phone models (Samsung Kies).

UPDATE:

— Big thanks to our reader Senior Kwame for bringing to our attention that Odin is not an official Samsung software. Check him out on Facebook. —

The process described below is for flashing any Samsung device back to the original operating system (ROM) and/or for upgrading to any higher android version. If you encounter any problems at any time during the process, drop us a comment below and we’ll assist you. In case you need the procedure for a specific model, let us know in the comment section.

Things you’ll need

  1. Firmware of device (Phone/Device software)
  2. Odin software (For the flashing process)
  3. Internet connection (To download files)
  4. USB cable and USB drivers for your device (For connection between phone and PC)
  5. Windows computer running any version of Windows

Download links for the various things you’ll need are listed below:

The Process

This should take between 20 to 50 minutes to finish (Depending on your internet connection speed).

First download and install the USB driver for your device. Use link above.

Then download the correct firmware file for your device. Be sure to download the correct file for your device, because you can’t use just about any firmware file for any device. Then download the odin software as well.

Copy and place all these files on your desktop, so you can easily find them. Now boot your phone/device into download mode. To achieve this (download mode), follow the steps below:

Switch off the phone completely. Now press and hold the following keys simultaneously:

Odin Interface

 

Click the PDA option, to browse for the firmware/flash file you downloaded for your device. This is what will be used by odin to flash your phone.

Once the flash file is uploaded, click the Start option to begin the process. Just sit and wait while your phone is flashed/upgraded. It’ll automatically reboot when done, then you can continue the process on your phone. Your phone should now boot and you can walk through the setup like any other new phone setup. That’s it. You’re done.
