Facebook tests out another Snapchat-like feature within its main app

Facebook seems so keen on taking Snapchat’s young audience as it keeps trying to replicate the app. This time instead of releasing a separate app, Facebook is trying out Snapchat-like features with the main app. Much like Snapchat, the app will now have a built-in camera with disappearing messages will be live for 24 hours. It has optional special effects, too. And you don’t even need to open Messenger to send these photos and videos to your Facebook friends. The test is currently only running in Ireland and there is no word yet if this’ll make it out of Ireland and past the testing phase.

Barnes & Noble might be working on a new Nook tablet with Google Play Store support

It looks like Barnes & Noble hasn’t completely abandoned its Nook brand. But a device that recently passed through the FCC might point us in a different direction. What’s new with this “Nook Tablet 7” is it’ll run on Android and have Google Play Store available. Some of the other specs include MediaTek MTM8163 quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor with Mali-T720 MP2 graphics, 3,000mAh battery, front and rear cameras, microUSB port, and microSD card slot. No word yet on the price or its availability but perhaps we might see it before the holiday season goes into full swing.
