YouTube Adds Option to Reuse Details from Previous Videos to Streamline Uploads, New Mobile Analytics

This could come in handy - YouTube has today added a new option in YouTube Studio which enables users to re-use details from previous uploads for new uploads within the posting process on desktop.As you can see here, the new option enables you to re-use:Video title Video description Language settings Shorts sampling permissions Category selectionsThat could save you a lot of time, particularly for those who regularly post on the same topics, or have to manually input language options with each new post. Of course, you’re probably not going to upload many videos with the exact same title and description, but by copying the details across, that could make it easier to edit those details quickly, for similar content, without having to re-enter the same info for each video in a serie...

How Illustration Adds Emotion To UX

From 45,000-year-old cave paintings to 21st-century space rocket diagrams, illustrations have long played a significant role in human communication. Pictures cross-language and literacy barriers, allowing people to understand and communicate complex moods and feelings that they cannot in words. When we were little, we could understand and appreciate E.H. Shepard’s illustrations of Winnie the Pooh and friends long before we could read A.A. Milne’s words. The word ‘to illustrate’ has two main meanings: to create a picture of; and to demonstrate or provide an example of. In the context of the web, illustration is part decoration, part emotional signal, helping to create a particular impression to the user by painting a metaphorical picture. Why Use Illustrations on a Website? Illustratio...

WhatsApp Adds Option to Speed Up Voice Message Playback

Here's a quick one, which could come in handy for those who communicate via voice messages - and in particular, long voice messages. Today, WhatsApp has added new variable playback speed control options for audio replies.It's pretty straightforward - now, when you get a voice message, you can play it regular 1x speed, or you lean slightly more towards Chipmunk-style voices by cranking the playback to 1.5x, or even 2.0x regular speed. Which, as many have noted, alternative messaging app Telegram has actually enabled its users to do since 2018. Telegram, and another messaging app, Signal, have both gained traction over the past few months due to WhatsApp's controversial privacy policy update, which will enable it to share some data from user transactions with businesses in WhatsApp a...

Twitter Adds Spaces Access via the Web as it Continues to Develop its Audio Social Platform

Twitter has taken another steady leap forward in the evolving audio social sphere by adding Spaces access via the web, meaning that you can now tune into Twitter Spaces from your desktop PC.It's not perfect as yet. I tried to tune into a couple of Spaces and got as far as this screen, which remained stagnant for as long as I waited.But early teething problems aside, the ability to access Spaces on the web is a significant advance, as it not only opens up the option to even more users, but it also enables hosts and speakers to use their PC microphones and audio set-ups, which will lend itself to more professional sounding, higher quality Spaces streams.As you can see in the image above, when you go to join a Space on your PC, you'll first get a preview of the Space, similar to th...
