WhatsApp is rolling out its latest authentication feature for all beta users. The authentication feature is a part of other new features which WhatsApp will be starting to enable their beta users after opening the first official public beta program. The latest authentication or unlock feature is available in the new beta update published through TestFlight beta program. The new update now adds fingerprint lock to the WhatsApp application on the iPhone. The new beta feature rollout was spotted by WABetainfo.

If the user is on the iPhone X or above, then FaceID unlock is available. However, for iPhone below that, TouchID or passcode is available. In the WhatsApp settings, if users choose Screen Lock, they can choose to start the authentication feature for their devices. Starting the feature will, however, still allow users to reply to received messages straight from the locked screen notifications and also answer WhatsApp calls without any authentication.

The user will have to configure the TouchID or FaceID unlock feature on WhatsApp. After the configuration is done, users will have to shut down the app and restart it again. After that users can authenticate their identity in order to use WhatsApp. If the iPhone TouchID fails, users can also log in via passcode. For iPhone X, and above, the FaceID works.

When the biometric unlock security feature is enabled on WhatsApp, the preview snapshot of the app will go empty and will show nothing. In terms of privacy, the fingerprint and the face unlock data are encrypted in your iPhone. WhatsApp will not get your security data as it is managed on phone-level access and extraction of this information is not possible. Hence it could be said that the fingerprint unlock feature for WhatsApp is safe to be used.

Dish TV Channels Selection Process: Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has introduced a new framework for DTH cable television providers in India. These new rules have come into effect from today, that is February 1. Subscribers were required to select at least 100 channels before the deadline. The subscribers who didn’t select their channels till the deadline, have had their channels pre-selected by the respective DTH providers with regard to the closest channels that resembled their earlier plan.

Dish TV has listed all of the channels along with their list price on their official website according to TRAI’s new guidelines. If you haven’t selected, which channels you want, here’s how you will be able to do it.

How to choose channels on Dish TV

For selecting channels that any Dish TV subscriber wants to watch, they can log in to the company’s official website or mobile application with their registered mobile number or subscriber ID. The company will then send an OTP to the customers registered mobile number, which can be used to sign in.

Once the Dish TV DTH subscriber is logged in to the website or the mobile app they will then get to see their current DTH service details, like the amount of money they have in their digital wallet, plans and much more. There they can then choose between three broad categories – Dish Combo, Channels, Bouquets.

If the user decides to pick all their channels manually, they will be required to select a minimum of 100 channels to keep their connection live. HD (High Definition) channels are counted as two SD (Standard Definition) channels, so if the user selects 50 HD channels, he can leave the rest and enjoy those 50 channels. Subscribers can filter their search by selecting a language or category like English, Infotainment, Kids.

The price will constantly keep on updating in the user’s cart. The network capacity fee (NCF) has been set by TRAI and is the same for all operators. The NCF is Rs 130 along with 18 per cent GST, the total of which amounts to Rs 153. There are many channels like Star Plus and Sony, for which the subscribers will have to pay an extra fee, due to these being marked as paid channels.

NCF per 25 extra channels over 100 basic channels, will require the consumer to pay Rs 25 extra. All DD channels are mandatory and can’t be removed from a customers list.

WhatsApp has released a new beta version of its Android app for the chat app users, and the latest release brings a useful feature along. The WhatsApp for Android beta version 2.19.33 adds the ability to download a single sticker from a pack. Earlier, a WhatsApp user was forced to download the entire sticker pack even if the person just wanted to use a single sticker from that pack. There was no option to download one sticker individually and leave out the rest. This download single sticker feature has now been made live with the latest beta update and is set to come in the stable update soon.

WhatsApp for Android Gets Download Single Sticker Option: Here's How It Works

WhatsApp for Android Gets Download Single Sticker Option: Here's How It Works
WhatsApp for Android Gets Download Single Sticker Option: Here's How It Works
1. WhatsApp updates its Android beta app to version 2.19.33
2. It introduced download single sticker option in the latest beta
3. WhatsApp stable app to get the feature in next Google Play update.

In order to use this download single sticker option, you must be using the latest WhatsApp for Android beta version 2.19.33. After downloading the update, open the in-app WhatsApp Stickers Store and long press on a sticker in a not-yet-downloaded stickers pack. WhatsApp will then prompt to ask if you want to save that sticker as favourite. It will show you the download size of the single sticker and offer a download option at the bottom for saving the sticker in the app.

This new feature is very useful, especially for those who want an uncluttered stickers menu with only the relevant ones showing up. It also saves precious data for all the limited pack users. This feature was spotted by WhatsApp beta news tracker WABetaInfo. The website also states that this feature will be available in the next Google Play stable release with the build number 2.19.33+.

Furthermore, the tipster notes that the WhatsApp for Android 2.19.33 beta update also indicates that the WhatsApp Pay feature may be coming to the United States soon. Previously, the tipster had claimed that it is also set to arrive in Mexico as well. As a part of his remarks during Facebook's Q4 earnings call, Mark Zuckerberg revealed that the company will roll out Payments on WhatsApp in select other markets this year.

WhatsApp Payments was first introduced in India in February last year, first in the beta version of its Android and iOS apps, later in the stable version. The feature itself still remains in beta and hasn't been rolled out to all users of the chat app in the country because of the regulatory hurdles.

There are more than a billion WhatsApp users and the Facebook-owned platform has become one of the most preferred instant messaging app in the world. On the other hand, WhatsApp also has a plethora of useful features which make the overall user experience better in every sense. However, as we are connecting with more and more people through WhatsApp, the one problem that a majority of users are facing is related to their device storage and cellular data.

You might be one of those users who get a lot of messages in their WhatsApp chats most of them being media files such as images, videos, recordings and more. Since all of this is downloaded in your smartphone, these media files from WhatsApp take up a lot of space in the device’s internal storage. Moreover, these files also consume a lot of cellular data since WhatsApp auto-downloads all these files.

And, the D-Day has finally arrived.

Effective February 1st, TRAI’s new cable TV rules will be implemented pan-India, which effectively changes everything about the cable and DTH industry in India.

The new Cable TV rules, which were originally planned for December 28th, was postponed to February 1st as customers were not aware of the actual changes.

But now, no extension will be made, and the deadline is final.

Here are 7 questions and their answers which every cable TV user should be aware of, effective February 1st, 2019:

New Cable TV Rules: 7 Questions Which Every Cable TV User Is Asking In India

New Cable TV Rules: 7 Questions Which Every Cable TV User Is Asking In India
New Cable TV Rules: 7 Questions Which Every Cable TV User Is Asking In India

I have selected longterm/annual plans. What will happen now?

All long term and annual plans have been canceled, effective February 1st. This means that if you have selected a 2-year plan as on October, 2018, then the plan is now nullified, and canceled.

However, don’t panic. The remaining amount, on a prorated basis, will be refunded back to your respective DTH/Cable account, which can be used for selecting a new plan and new channels.

You won’t lose a single penny.

I have not selected any new plan. What will happen now?

In case you fail to choose any new plan based on the new Cable TV rules, then there won’t be any blackout. TRAI has assured that users that DTH/Cable companies cannot blackout your TV after February 1st.

In case no plan is selected, you will be transferred to the basic pack of Rs 130 plus GST, which is Rs 154, wherein you will be eligible to watch 100 channels. As you have selected no pack, there will be no pay channels or bouquet in this base pack, and you can watch only 100 FTA channels.

What Is Base Pack? What is à la carte system?

Base pack is the technical term for the minimum fees which cable TV/DTH user needs to pay to access channels. This is Rs 130 plus GST, which comes to Rs 154.

Hence, base pack is the minimum amount which needs to be paid to access cable tv.

A` la carte system is when you choose your own channels, individually: Every pay channel has an MRP, which you need to pay separately.

What is the new Cable TV Tariff? Explain Like I Am Five

The new Cable TV Tariff is the new, revolutionary way to access TV channels.

Govt. has mandated that a network connect fees or the base pack has to be paid by every user, which is Rs 130 plus GST (Rs 154). After paying this, the user will be able to access 100 channels.

These 100 channels can be FTA (Free to Air) or pay channels. FTAs are free, but for pay channels, you need to pay the respective amount for each channel.

Hence, if you choose 5 pay channels, whose individual price is Rs 5, then you will need to pay: Rs 130 (plus GST) + Rs 25 (5*5).

If you want to access more channels, above 100, then you need to pay as per slabs: Rs 20 for 25 extra channels.

What If I select all the channels available in India?

Rs 6137 is the total charge, if a customer subscribes to all the channels available in India. However, if he uses bouquets and packs offered by DTH and broadcasters, then the expense can come down to Rs 5023.

There are total of 559 FTA or Free to Air channels, and 330 pay channels. The FTAs also include the mandatory 25 DD channels.

Will my Cable TV expense come down? Or go up?

This is a tricky question.

As per TRAI’s and BARC’s research, an average household only watched 50 channels.

As of now, the customer is paying on an average Rs 350-400 for accessing 300+ channels, while he watches only 50 or even less. Hence, it is expected that once the customer is able to freely add/delete channels from the base pack of 100 channels, the overall cost will come down.

TRAI has repeatedly said that the overall cost of cable TV will now come down.

But again, it depends on case to case.

How Will the invoice be generated now?

From now on, there will be two parts of the invoice: a) Network connect fees of Rs 130 plus GST and b) Content charges for the pay channels.

Tata Sky has removed the network charges for some additional channels, and Sun Direct has removed additional fees for all channels.
