WhatsApp helps billions of people make plans and meet up with friends — and not just through its messaging and calling features. The app also has a “share location” function that you might be familiar with, letting you send an estimation of your current location to a contact. Taking this concept a step further, WhatsApp has now announced that it will soon launch a real-time location sharing feature.

In a blog post published yesterday, WhatsApp announced Live Location Sharing, a “secure way to let people know where you are.” Like the previous location sharing feature, this is activated by tapping the attach (paperclip) button...

The catalyst for ecommerce and other internet businesses to flourish in China, India, and Southeast Asia is digital payments. This in turn has a multiplier effect on economic growth.

That’s why today’s announcement of US$1.5 million series A funding for Pakistani fintech startup Finja is notable. More so, because Swedish investment company Vostok led the round – the Pakistan startup ecosystem rarely hits headlines for attracting international investment. Dubai-headquartered Gray Mackenzie Engineering Services also participated in the round.

Finja is giving a push to digital payments in Pakistan with its SimSim wallet. The Urdu version of the phrase...

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL aren’t supposed to be on general release until tomorrow (October 19), but it looks like some lucky fans are going to beat the crowds.

Precisely which pre-order customers will receive their devices in the next days will depend on the storage size and color of the ordered device. Google’s hotly anticipated new smartphones come in several variations, with some of them already being...

This means they’ll receive all the latest features including picture-in-picture (PiP) mode, the ability to snooze notifications, and more.

The bad news, however, is that you’ll have to wait...
