Review: Rizek App

Published

on

Rizek is a local super app, that offers a wide range of services. These services include Cleaning, Healthcare, Automotive, Beauty and Wellness, Men’s Grooming, Maintenance, Packers and Movers, and Petcare:

In order to use the services, download the Rizek App, which is available for both Android and iOS devices. Select the service you need, and choose your date, time, and location. Then pay for the service and your booking will be confirmed. The list of services offered vary from location to location. Rizek’s services are currently available in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, and Ajman.

The service we opted for this review was Automotive services and specifically Interior and Exterior Wash. On the day of the service, the crew arrived on time and started their work. They drove a van that had all the necessary equipment required to deliver a good service.

Since this is an on-location service, you may need to get permissions from your building or community to use this service. This is because, after our car was washed, there was some stagnant dirty water in the parking area which was not cleared, before the crew left. Hence, it is better if you check with your building or community if such services are allowed in your residential area, or there is a risk you may get a fine.

The Rizek crew did an excellent job of cleaning the interior and exterior of the car. The pricing of the service is definitely on the higher side. However, if you require on-location services, or do not have time to go to the nearest service center and get your car washed, the premium might be something you could consider.

Price: Pricing depends on the opted service. AED 74 for Interior and Exterior Wash for SUVs

Rizek App Varies based on the service.

You Can Now Join In-Progress Group Calls on WhatsApp

Published

on

WhatsApp group calls are about to behave more like Zoom calls and other more free-form chats. The company has started rolling out the ability to join group calls in progress, rather than having to be there and stay when the call starts. You can drop in and out at will as long as you were invited at the beginning.

There’s also a call information screen to show who’s participating in, and invited to a chat. Also, don’t worry if you have to hit “ignore” for a call — the door will still be open if you want to join later.

“Today we’re introducing the ability to join a group call, even after it’s started. Joinable calls reduce the burden of answering a group call as it starts, and brings the spontaneity and ease of in-person conversations to group calling on WhatsApp,” the platform said in a blog post.

To join a missed group call, all you need to do is to open the “Calls” tab, and if the call is ongoing, tap the call you would like to join in. You will then see the call info screen. From the call menu, tap “Join”. The feature also has a new call info screen with it, which lets users see who is on the call, along with invited users who haven’t joined yet. Group video calling on WhatsApp currently allows up to eight participants.

The addition is a recognition that Zoom and other more flexible video chat services are still popular even as the pandemic, hopefully, winds down. WhatsApp is also acknowledging that some people have always had different video chat habits — this could make the service more appealing if you’ve always left a video chat running so that friends could pop in when they have a moment.
