WhatsApp’s New Update Will Ensure You Don’t Send Pictures To The Wrong Contact

whatsapp new updates status

We all have accidentally sent pictures to contacts we were not supposed to on WhatsApp. And thankfully, the popular messaging app is now rolling out a new feature that can save you from this goof-up.

A new WhatsApp update is on the way for Android which will help a user double check the name of the contact to whom they want to send images to before hitting the send button.

Now, you will be spared of the embarrassment of your pictures ending up with somebody they weren’t meant for. Currently, the app shows the image of recipients in the top left-hand corner of the screen when an image is being selected and edited by the user. This new update will be a more productive substitute rather than the need to delete sent messages and arousing confusion to the recipient.

The update, which is currently running for the WhatsApp Android Beta version, will show you the media recipients’ name below the caption in the screen so that the users can be sure whom they’re sharing their pictures, GIFs and videos with

Apart from this update, WhatsApp has also added the Picture-in-Picture feature. This will allow users to watch videos with the app running in the background, allowing users to switch chats and apps while the video in playing. Both these features are a part of the latest 2.18.301 beta update of WhatsApp for Android. There is no information provided as to when the update will arrive on iOS.

Over the years, WhatsApp has had some interesting updates. The messaging app has also limited the number of text forwards, in an effort to curb the spread of fake news. The company recently announced that it will take legal action against those who use the app for sending automated spam messages. The Facebook-owned application will also start showing ads in the Status tab starting from next year, similar to Instagram Stories.

Ghana eSports Master League to Commence in June

Ghana eSports Master League madagastar

Madagastar eSports, one of the groups championing eSports in the country, has officially announced the date for the commencement of its eSports Master League for Ghanaian eSports players.

The FIFA 19 Ghana Master league which will be contested by 80 players will commence on the 22nd of June and end on the 24th of August, 2019.

After a series of qualification matches which were organized on the 16th of February, 2019; 23rd March, 2019; 20th April, 2019 and 18th May, 2019 at West Hills mall, 32 players have qualified to join 48 other participants, who were on standby, for the 2019 edition of the Ghana eSports master league.

The journey so far

The Ghana eSports master league has been running for three years now since its inception in 2017. Last year, about 32 players were relegated after the league to create space for the admission of new players for the 2019 season.

The relegation of the 32 participants necessitated the organization of the qualification matches which came off on the aforementioned dates. Each qualification saw the quarter-finalists, the last eight participants, qualifying automatically for the master league.

The other 48 participants making up the 80 secured their place in this year’s edition as a result of falling within the best 48 players in the 2018 season.

The tournament

The 80 participating players would be grouped into 4 zones with each zone having 20 players. Each player will play 38 matches in a home and away fixture with the other 19 players in the zone. A player will be awarded 3 points for winning a game, 1 point for drawing a game and 0 point for losing a game.

All matches in each zone will be played within 7 days before the Ghana Ultimate cup begins. Zone A will thus begin on 22nd June, Zone B will begin on 29th June, zone C will begin on 6th July and Zone D will begin on 13th July 2019.

At the end of the initial stages, the first four teams in each zone will qualify for the round of 16 stage where players will battle it out in the Ghana Ultimate Cup. The 16 participants to have qualified for the Ghana Ultimate Cup will be grouped into two with each participant playing 7 games in a group. The first four from each group will qualify for the quarterfinals of the Ghana ultimate Cup where the best 4 will progress to the semifinals. The best two from the semifinals will then progress to the finals with the winner being determined through a home and away fixture.

Jumia has been approved to list its shares on the New York Stock Exchange

jumia shares new york stock exchange

Reports coming in from tech blog Techpoint.africa indicates Jumia Technologies AG is getting closer to finally launch its Initial Public Offering (IPO), following the approval to list its shares on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) as JMIA.

Jumia had originally declared its intention with a Form F-1 filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 12, 2019.

According to an amended F-1 filing dated March 28, 2019, Jumia has been approved to list its American Depositary Shares (ADS) — US dollar-denominated equity shares of a foreign-based company available for purchase on an American stock exchange — on the NYSE. Anticipating an initial IPO price of between $13 and $16, Jumia will be selling 13.5 million ADS when it eventually launches.

At an anticipated maximum price of $16 per ADS, the company could raise up to $316 million or more.

Although Jumia has the approval to list its shares, its registration statement filed with SEC is yet to be declared effective, which is like the final go-ahead from the commission for the company to launch its IPO. And according to a SEC official, once that happens, it will be up to the company whether and when to launch its IPO.

The amendment also highlights the private placement agreement between Jumia and Mastercard Europe with which the latter has agreed to buy €50.0 million (about $55.98million) ordinary shares in a concurrent private placement.

Beyond raising money through the impending public offering and the private placement, Jumia may require additional capital to finance its operations as well as growth in the future. This is on the account that the company had an accumulated loss of €862.0 million (about $965.07 million) as of December 31, 2018.

And as stated in the SEC filings, “there is no guarantee that we will generate sufficient revenue in the future to offset the cost of maintaining our platform and maintaining and growing our business.”

How effective will the IPO be on the profitability of the largest eCommerce platform in Africa? As it is, the world will have to wait for an answer to that question when Jumia eventually launches its IPO.
