Instagram is bringing new fonts to Stories - Latest News

Instagram is bringing new fonts to Stories – Latest News

Facebook-owned photo-sharing app Instagram is set to bring new fonts to its Stories. This was announced by the company on Twitter, where it said that it is testing it with a small percentage of people.

“New fonts coming to Stories soon*

*We’re testing this with a small percentage of people. Stay tuned for updates,” reads the tweet.

The company did not reveal the percentage or the location of users it is testing these or when the feature is coming to everyone else.

Recently, it was reported that Instagram is soon going to add a memorialisation option for the account of someone who has passed away. This was discovered by reverse-engineer Jane Manchun Wong.

Replying to her tweet, the account of Instagram’s PR team confirmed that this feature is indeed in the works. “Yes, we’re making changes to help people identify if an Instagram account belongs to someone who has passed away. We’ll have more to share on this at a later time,” reads the tweet.

Recently, Instagram rolled out the web support for sending Direct Messages (DMs) along with supports for viewing Instagram Live videos.

The live video streaming happens in the same portrait mode — and in the same size — as it does on users’ smartphones. However, thanks to the bigger screen space, you get to see the comments on the side of the ongoing live video instead of how you see them at the bottom on a smartphone on a transparent window making the viewing experience a little better on the web.

face shield: Varsity professor designs ‘Face Shield’ to counter coronavirus spread – Latest News

An assistant professor at the SRM University, Amaravati, has designed a Face Shield, using 3D printing technology, that will cover all the vital parts of the face and offers complete protection from coronavirus. “While manufacturing the Face Shield, 3D printing technology is used for designing a headband, upon which a 100 micron thick transparent plastic sheet is attached to ensure superior protection against the virus. It prevents air, dust, and liquids that are contaminated to come in contact with people. Also, there are no probable side effects on using the mask,” Panchagnula Jayaprakash, the designer, said.

Unlike the other face masks in regular use by all, including doctors, policemen and journalists, the Face Shield has no limitations and ensures full protection of the eyes, mouth and nose, which eliminates the risk of infection.

A release from SRM University on Friday said the Face Shield could be an effective alternative to the N95 mask that was found to cause facial irritation.

SRM University pro-chancellor Narayana Rao wrote to AP Deputy Chief Minister (Health) A K K Srinivas and Education Minister A Suresh explaining the features of the Face Shield, which could be a low-cost alternative.

“The Face Shield could be marketed for public use if the government approves it,” the release added.
