New WhatsApp Hoax message – Reliance Jio bill for Rs 27,000

A new hoax is doing the rounds of India’s favourite messaging app, WhatsApp, claiming that a user was billed for Rs 27,718 by Reliance Jio while she was on the Jio Welcome offer. According to the image of the fake bill, Ayunuddin Mondal from Kolkata is required to pay this ridiculously large amount on the account of using 554.38 GB of data and 44 minutes of voice calling.Considering that Reliance Jio is offering charge-free service for the duration of the Jio Welcome Offer (valid upto December 31), it is not possible for a user to receive a bill.

 

Stream Shared Videos While Downloading | WhatsApp

 

WhatsApp-AH-6-of-11-1600x1067WhatsApp beta for Android will allow its users to watch shared videos while they’re being downloaded in the background. The feature is being tested on the WhatsApp for Android beta app, and can soon be expected to release to the stable channel of the app.

The new video streaming feature on WhatsApp for Android beta will use your Wi-Fi or cellular data to buffer a shared video, while it’s still in the downloading process in the background. Earlier, WhatsApp users had to wait until a video gets completely downloaded to watch it – depending upon WhatsApp auto-download setting. We tested the feature on WhatsApp for Android beta v2.16.354.

What Will India Do With 23 Billion Worthless Banknotes? – Bloomberg

Stacked one on top of the other, the pile would be 300 times the height of Mount Everest. Laid down to form a pathway, it’d be long enough to reach the moon and back five times. Prime Minister Narendra Modi invalidated the bills in a single move announced Nov. 8, sucking out 86 percent of the nation’s currency in circulation and giving citizens until Dec. 30 to exchange them for fresh notes.
