Snapchat launched a browser version of their service back in July, featuring messaging and video chat functionality — but only in select regions and for subscribers to Snapchat+. The popular messaging app will now be available in a browser-based format for all users globally.

The interface isn’t exactly cutting edge in terms of design or features. However, it still looks like a useful option for people who like to type long messages, or those looking for a more efficient way to upload content using a desktop or laptop.

The web-based version of Snapchat will also allow users to make longer-length audio and video calls after the company revealed that this had been a popular feature of late. As demand for the browser version of the app grows, Snapchat engineers will add more core features to the desktop app, bringing most of the functionality that users already enjoy on Android and iOS.

Speaking of the popular Apple operating system, Snapchat has also announced a set of new lock screen widgets for its service now that iOS 16 has arrived on the scene. The widgets allow iPhone fans to create shortcuts to conversions, helping users quickly jump back into frequent chats in a single tap.

The Snapchat app itself will also feature new shortcuts at the top of its chat page. The new additions will make it easy for people to jump to their unread Snaps, frequent chats, and replies to stories. The shortcuts will also show reminders for friends’ birthdays and conversations that users haven’t replied to yet. Last, but not least, Snapchat has also added Question Stickers that can be posted to stories and Snaps. There’s no definite release date on any features yet, but some users have already started to benefit from a gradual roll-out of the upgrades.

Guinness World Records, the authority on record-breaking global achievements, has just announced its latest release, “Guinness World Records 2023 (GWR2023),” which will be available online and in physical stores across the Arab region from today.

As usual, GWR 2023 features all of the latest achievements from around the world (and space!), with special features and updated graphics to bring the stories to life.

So why the interest in the latest Guinness installment? Well, it turns out the Arab Region is strongly represented in the book, with more than 50 records featured in the new edition, which is no mean feat considering the volume of competition.

“We’ve sifted through nearly 40,000 record applications over the past year to bring you Guinness World Records 2023. People from all walks of life continue to be fascinated by extremes, and we’ve received claims from across the planet – indeed, even from space! This is why I’ve said the new edition is out of this world,” says Craig Glenday, Guinness Editor in Chief.

Of interest to readers of this platform, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates both get to flex their record-breaking muscles.
