Photograph: David Paul Morris/Getty Images Facebook is working on a video chat device for the home – the first major hardware product from its experimental Building 8 lab.
Featuring a laptop-sized touchscreen, the device represents a new product category and could be announced as soon as next spring’s F8 developer conference, according to people familiar with the matter.
Snapchat’s chat feature has been around for a while, but being tied directly to a user's story creates an better avenue for discussion within the app.
Users can also now use Snapchat lenses — the interative animations you can layer over your selfies — with the rear-facing camera.
The new devices represent a new phase in Facebook’s hardware ambitions.
Though the company sells the Oculus virtual reality headset, it acquired its maker and didn’t create the original product (although a new model will debut next year).
By default, Autoload will automatically reload your wallet with 200 tokens() when your wallet falls below 100 tokens.The social media giant is working on at least one other product – a standalone smart speaker that would compete with the Amazon Echo and Google Home, said the people, who asked not be named discussing unannounced products.Facebook is hiring Apple veterans to help it create a Siri-style voice assistant that would run on both devices, they said.In the not too distant past it wasn’t uncommon to come across organisations struggling to decide between using live chat or a virtual agent on their website for customer support.The customer service marketplace took a very polarised view of these technologies with proponents of each making strong arguments for why their preferred solution was the best for cutting costs, boosting revenue and bettering the customer experience.
