Whatsapp will be rolling out new feature with the next update which includes tracking your friends’ location who are part a group, recall messages, and edit messages
How this works?
The geo tracking feature will be by default disabled which can be enabled to allow friends to locate you, which is really useful for the group members to gather at a common venue. Though why it’s been enabled for members of a whatsapp group and not peer to peer is not clear. Other features expected to roll out include the famous recall where you can recall a message sent before the other person reads it and also an opportunity to edit your response on a message which gives ample of opportunity to keep the conversation going by correcting the mistakes in real time giving more freedom in a messaging app.
The dynamics of features that whatsapp would provide its users represents and compliments the loyalty and user centric nature of an app that stays at the top in the market.
All said and done, it’s only a matter of time till we get that latest update to try hands on keeping an eye on your friend.

The hottest topic buzzing around the web block is that the native apps in the smart devices are reducing the need to access the World Wide Web. The buzz about the native apps providing tailored content which presents the user with only relevant information contradicts the users need for more and more information in their computing devices.This need is limited by the device’s memory.Given that high end devices come with large in-built memory,so is not the case with normal smart devices.

The limitation of native apps is not only bothering the users but haunting the developers who has to craft the apps for a variety of operating systems, which is a pain.

Given that these limitions are ignored by the users on a daily basis with the thought that nothing much can be done gives rise to a whole new idealism of browser suppported apps which can be dubbed as Web 3.0, where all the native apps and the information needed by a user can be run and is available in a single application. Thus, giving the user the open space of the World Wide Web to play with.

Big players in the web technology say that with the advent of HTML5 and the browser technologies will bring about a drastic change in the current dimension in which the web technoloy is working.But, as the going says that all good things take time, so does the new Web era, which will pickup the momentum gradually.

In a nut shell the old World Wide Web still rocks! and might be disguised in a new avatar in a not so distant future.
