Published

on

Snap Inc. recently announced that it will be launching Username Change, a highly anticipated feature allowing Snapchatters who may want to change their username to reflect their authentic identities. The feature is expected to be widely adopted by Snap’s age-up users who may have grown out of their initial usernames.

Starting 23 February, all Snapchatters on iOS and Android will be able to change their original username without any impact on their friendships, Snap code, Snap Score, Memories, and so on. Username Change is one of the most highly requested features from Snap’s community, and one which is incredibly important for so many Snapchatters.

Snapchatters will be able to change their Username once per year to any unclaimed handle that has not been used (including by themselves) in the past.

To update a Snapchat Username, users can follow these five quick easy steps:

  1. Tap the Bitmoji icon in the top right corner of the Camera to head to the profile screen
  2. Select settings by tapping on the gear icon in the top right corner of the profile
  3. Tap “Username,” just below Name, and select “Change Username” marked in blue
  4. From there, click continue on the pop up reminding that Usernames can only be changed once per year
  5. Type in a new Username, hit next, and log back into Snapchat to finalize.

Calling all creative minds! WhatsApp is testing a new feature that uses AI to generate personalized avatars. Imagine yourself as a superhero, chilling on a beach, or even exploring space – the possibilities are endless! WABetaInfo discovered this feature in the latest Android beta update.

YouTube’s New Eraser Tool Now Removes Songs Without Ruining Your Videos

Published

Good news for creators! YouTube has rolled out a major update to its eraser tool, allowing them to effortlessly remove copyrighted music from their videos without sacrificing other audio elements like dialogue or sound effects.

In a recent video, YouTube acknowledged that the previous version of the tool needed improvement in terms of accuracy. This new iteration addresses that concern by utilizing an AI-powered algorithm that precisely detects and removes unwanted songs while leaving the rest of the audio intact.

However, YouTube’s support page advises creators that the algorithm might not always achieve perfect separation. As an alternative, creators can opt to “Mute all sound in the claimed segments,” effectively silencing any portions potentially containing copyrighted material.
