Social metaverse firm Meta announced that they will remove the Live Shopping feature on Facebook starting on October 1, 2022.

“Beginning on October 1, 2022, you will no longer be able to host any new or scheduled Live Shopping events on Facebook,” Meta’s statement read.

However, Meta assured the Facebook users that they can still broadcast live videos without creating product playlists or tag products.

“You will still be able to use Facebook Live to broadcast live events, but you won’t be able to create product playlists or tag products in your Facebook Live videos,” it added.

Meta made the move as they wanted to shift their focus to Reels on both social media platforms, Facebook and Instagram.

According to Meta, netizens can still tag their products using Reels on Instagram and broadcast a Live Shopping as well.

Samsung accidentally leaks the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3

Galaxy Z Fold and Flip 3

Samsung is hosting its annual Galaxy Unpacked event on August 11. In the weeks leading up to the event, the company already confirmed what was coming: a new slate of foldables and no Galaxy Note. Amid the company’s confirmations, a slew of leaks has revealed a lot of details already. And, less than two days before the event itself, Samsung has accidentally leaked ads for the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3.

Samsung Malaysia accidentally posted a 30-second ad on YouTube for the foldable, presenting them in detail with their touted features. The YouTube account has since deleted the ad but not before Reddit captured the video.

The video starts by displaying the Galaxy Z Flip 3’s bigger cover screen, allowing users to see much more of their notifications even without flipping the device on. It then moves on to the Galaxy Z Fold 3’s S Pen experience, confirming that the series will get a much more optimized S Pen. Finally, the video touts the series’ increased durability, a persistent problem since the form factor’s introduction.

Of course, these are all details that were hinted at in the past. The leaked video hasn’t really revealed anything new about the series. However, it does show the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3 in all their glory. Plus, it confirms formerly rumored details.

Nokia is reviving the Nokia 3650

Another year, another classic Nokia phone resurrected from the grave. Since its revival, Nokia, helmed by HMD Global, has slowly revived its lineup of classic phones. The new lineup is a perfect match for the nostalgia and the budget-conscious market. According to a new report, Nokia is reviving another classic, the Nokia 3650.

Classic Nokia 3650

According to a Russian source, the company will modernize the brick phone for the new generation. Given how it looked, this comes as no surprise.

Back in its day, the classic brick phone presented a controversial form factor for the industry. Instead of the iconic numpad, it had a circular keyboard reminiscent of the old rotary phones. If you had a brick phone, you should have muscle memory of texting with a numpad without looking. Because of its weirder format, the Nokia 3650 is harder to memorize.

In 2003, the Nokia 3650 had a rare rear-mounted camera, albeit a VGA one. With a redesign on the horizon, Nokia can definitely make the brick phone more adaptable to the modern market.

However, since it’s only a rumor, we don’t know when the modern Nokia 3650 is coming out. If anything, a new classic Nokia phone is something to look out for this year.

How to transfer all your Facebook photos and videos to Google Photos

You have probably uploaded tons of photos and videos on Facebook, and you probably have forgotten most of them until they show up as Memories. But what if you want to download all those content and store them on a free cloud storage platform like Google Photos for safekeeping? Let us show you how.

The method can be done via the web browser or from the app. But for this guide, we’re going to use the former.

Step 1: Log in to your Facebook account and go to Settings.

Step 2: Click on the ‘Your Facebook Information’ tab on the left.

Step 3: Look for ‘Transfer a Copy of Your Photos or Videos’ then click on ‘View.’

Step 4: Enter your password to continue.

Step 5: Choose a destination where a copy of your photos or videos will be transferred to. In this case, click on Google Photos.

Step 6: Choose to transfer a copy of either your photos or videos you’ve uploaded to Facebook. After selecting, click on ‘Next.’

Step 7: Log in to your Google account and give Facebook access.

Step 8: Confirm transfer.

At this point, Facebook will proceed with uploading a copy of your photos or videos to your Google Photos. The photos are organized based on the name of the albums you have on Facebook. The transfer time might take a while depending on how much photos or videos are being transferred, so check back on this later.

You can also choose to stop the transfer. Take note that it will not pause the transfer so if ever you want to resume, you’ll have to start all over again.

And that’s it. We hope that you find this guide helpful. If you have tips or recommendations, let us know in the comments below.
