  1. Twitter announced today that the social media giant will add a new feature to its platform that will challenge ‘Clubhouse’ for its audio hosting feature. Earlier, the feature was only available to iOS users in the country to access, however the microblogging site will now be extending it to Android as well. The feature will allow users to join, listen and speak live, similar to how it works on Clubhouse. Spaces will also have the ability to moderate speakers and participants just like ‘Clubhouse’. Anyone can listen in to conversations, however only the host can control who gets to speak. Other features like creating a chatroom will also be launched in the near future. © Twitter In order to join Spaces, you can enter a session via a link shared with you via Tweets or DM or look for the purple space in the fleets timeline. Additionally, users who join the call can also interact using emojis and view captions, similar to an experience you may have seen on live-streaming services such as Twitch and YouTube. Android folks, our beta is growing! starting today you will be able to join and talk in any Space. SOON you’ll be able to create your own but we’re still working out some things. keep your out for live Spaces above your home tl — Spaces (@TwitterSpaces) March 2, 2021 "Spaces has been extended to select Android users who are part of the beta programme in the country and has been expanding access to different communities for feedback. Rolling out over the next few days, people with Android will now be able to join, listen, and speak in conversations over Spaces. Joining a Space on Android is easy. Keep an eye out for the purple aura in your fleetline and tap to join,” Twitter said in a press release. © Unsplash/claudio-schwarz-aum Twitter has been focused on releasing voice-related features on its platform where earlier the microblogging site let users express themselves with their voices in direct messages. Now, Twitter is looking to dominate the audio call chatroom market too as the company first started testing the feature in December 2020. 'Clubhouse' has seen a significant gain in users even though it is currently an invite-only platform. However, Twitter may just dominate this space in the near future simply because it has more users than Clubhouse in India at the moment. View the full article
  2. There has been speculation whether Krafton’s next game PUBG: New State would launch in India or not after the Indian Government banned the main mobile game last year. The sequel to PUBG Mobile has now been made official, however it is still uncertain whether the game would launch in India as no announcements were made by Krafton. © Krafton However, there is still hope that the game might eventually launch in India as something was discovered in its code. According to Instagram user GemWire, the source code for New State has a microsite that supports the Hindi language. In fact, the code has a “provision for loading in Hindi” according to the poster. “Recently, with no pre-registration available for India, China and Vietnam, there was certain uncertainty of whether the game would be available in India. Inspecting the website files shows us that there is a transcript file for Hindi hidden. The support for the Hindi language which is predominantly spoken in India suggests that it might make its way to India sooner or later,” the GemWire post said. View this post on Instagram According to a separate report by IGN India, the Hindi microsite has a full translation of content which indicates that Krafton is gearing to launch the game in the country. The Hindi microsite is currently disabled and cannot be accessed, probably due to the recent ban the game has faced in the country. However, it does show Krafton’s intent that PUBG: New State will be ready for launch in India as soon as the company is able to. The difference this time around is that the game does not have any direct involvement by Chinese company Tencent Games which was the reason behind the ban of the previous mobile game. © Krafton PUBG: New State is slightly different from the original game as it has a futuristic theme and involves gadgets like drones and deployable cover.

  4. With the 2021 season of the Indian Premier League just one month away from its inception, former South African cricketer and one of the leading legends of pace bowling in international cricket, Dale Steyn dropped a stinger on his Indian fans when he said that he preferred IPL’s Pakistani counter, the Pakistan Super League. IPL is less rewarding as compared to PSL and other leagues. cricket gets forgotten, amid money talks, in the IPL which is why i decided against playing the last season. There is breeding machine of fast-bowlers here in Pakistan which is great to see.Dale Steyn(Express tribune) pic.twitter.com/dLa6dIy66E — Saleem Khaliq (@saleemkhaliq) March 2, 2021 In an interview with The Express Tribune, Steyn said: “I think when you go to the IPL, there are such big squads and so many big names and so much emphasis on maybe the amount of money players earn and everything like that, so sometimes, somewhere down the line, cricket gets forgotten.” “When you come to (a tournament) like PSL or Sri Lankan Premier League, there really is an importance on the cricket. I have only been here for a couple of days and I have had people in and out of my room just wanting to know about where I have played and how I went about it,” added the Protea. Cricket tweet Just a short message to let everyone know that I’ve made myself unavailable for RCB at this years IPL, I’m also not planning on playing for another team, just taking some time off during that period. Thank you to RCB for understanding. No I’m not retired. 🤙 — Dale Steyn (@DaleSteyn62) January 2, 2021I will be playing in other leagues, nicely spaced out to give myself a opportunity to do something’s I’ve been excited about as well as continue to play the game I love so much. NO, I’m NOT retired. Here’s to a great 2021 🤙 — Dale Steyn (@DaleSteyn62) January 2, 2021Ahead of the 14th edition of the Indian T20 league, Steyn had spoken about how he wishes to give himself a break from playing in the IPL but was willing to play in all the other leagues all over the world. IPL Retention Announcement 🔊 Here’s the news you’ve been waiting for, 12th Man Army. We have retained 12 stars from our 2020 squad. 🤩#PlayBold #IPL2021 #WeAreChallengers pic.twitter.com/YkzSV3EUjU — Royal Challengers Bangalore (@RCBTweets) January 20, 2021 Based on the South African’s decision, his IPL franchise, Royal Challengers Bangalore decided to release him, allowing themselves a massive purse to go shopping for talented players to fill the gaps in their roster in the mini-auction which took place in February. And even though Steyn will not be visiting India as a player with the beginning of the league this year, the 37-year old has left quite an impact on the fans of both the leagues in India and in Pakistan with two polarising thoughts towards the IPL, especially after the kind of money which was spent during the recent auction. While many Pakistan fans feel the IPL has become simply about starpower and spending money, the Indian fans feel it is so much more than that and is in fact a primary source of good cricket which provides much needed experience to the new generation of athletes. Ask England Cricket team. Value & importance of IPL. — Johns. (@CricCrazyJohns) March 2, 2021Money is what all IPL Fans care about these days & I've seen such nonsensical comments from Indians like "One IPL Player Salary is equal to the Whole Squad of PSL".

Tbh IPL gave us superstars like jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya many more , IPL is not only about money it's about hidden talents — Cricket_lover9999 (@Sherloc12925162) March 2, 2021Its just that quality of batting is better in IPL where Dale Steyn was finding it tough to survive. He might be feeling better bowling to inferior batsmen. — Zaffar (@Zaffar_Nama) March 2, 2021 View the full article
  5. Elon Musk’s super-fast internet venture Starlink will be launching in India and pre-booking registrations for the service is now live for customers. The super-fast internet service will be beamed directly from satellites to Earth from positions that are 60 times closer to the surface than traditional satellites. This will lead to lower latency according to the company. However, the service is still in the beta testing phase currently. © Reuters For Indian customers, the service can be pre-booked for about $99 which is around Rs 7,300 with a direct conversion. However, the amount can be higher depending on your bank and how much it charges for international transactions. The service is expected to be available by 2022 via satellites that will be launched by SpaceX in the future. Users can check about availability via the official website by entering their postcode. The service is available at multiple locations, however we still advise double-checking the availability before placing pre-book orders. On the website, it says, “Starlink is available to a limited number of users per coverage area at this time. Orders will be fulfilled on a first-come, first-served basis” Once your location is eligible for the service, you can then deposit the amount which is also refundable. You can even type the name of your location if the website doesn’t pull up your location via the postcode. Once your location has been identified as a serviceable area, you will finally be directed to the payments page. © Starlink Currently, Starlink offers connections in countries like the U.S. and Mexico where customers get a kit for $499 that enables them to access the service. The kit includes a wi-fi router, power cables and even a tripod. The company aims to deliver speeds up to 1GBPS in the near future, however currently it only goes up to 150MBPS. Starlink’s website currently requires personal data such as IP address, contact details and financial data for payments. It will be interesting to see how Indian players like Jio Broadband, ACT Fibernet and Airtel will respond to Musk’s new venture entering the country. View the full article

  8. If you’ve been wanting to invest in Bitcoin but have no idea how to go about it, then this list will come in handy for you. You can use any of these applications for trading cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Ethereum and even obscure ones like Dogecoin. These apps make cryptocurrency transactions a less complicated process and are safe to use in India. Here are five of the best cryptocurrency exchange apps you should be using in 2021: 1. Binance © Binance Binance is probably the most detailed and user-friendly app you can use right now for trading all sorts of cryptocurrencies. You can buy Bitcoin using Indian Rupees and even Paytm and UPI. The best part is that the app does not charge any additional fees to purchase cryptocurrencies for Indians either. You can also transfer funds between WazirX and Finance free of charge. The app also offers tutorials for beginners. 2. Coinbase © Reuters Much like Binance, Coinbase also offers a massive knowledge base for beginners to use if they are looking to start trading crypto. The app is simple and easy to use and offers the ability to use digital wallets to transfer funds as well. If you really want to learn everything about blockchain and cryptocurrencies, Coinbase is a great starting point. 3. Zebpay © Zebpay After it was shut down for a brief period, Zebpay re-launched in June last year. It offers a seamless experience on the app. The app is also lightning fast at doing transactions such as withdrawal and deposits. Zebpay also allows users to trade cryptocurrencies at the most competitive rates. 4. WazirX © WazirX Probably one of the most popular apps to use for crypto trading that is now owned by Binance, WazirX has seamless integration with Binance and also lets users transfer their deposits free of cost between the two apps. The integration also means that traders can buy and sell cryptocurrencies at a competitive price. You can find a total of 70 cryptocurrencies and can handle numerous transactions with ease. 5.

  9. PM Imran Khan congratulates the nation, its armed forces on 2nd anniversary of Pakistan's response to India's "illegal, reckless adventure"
  10. On February 24, former captain of the Pakistan cricket team, Shahid Afridi tweeted to the International Cricket Council after the on-field umpire refused to hold his cap in the middle of the Pakistan Super League match between Multan Sultans and Peshawar Zalmi. Dear @ICC wondering why the umpires are not allowed to hold bowlers cap even though they are in the same bubble as the players/management and even shake hands at the end of the game? 🤷‍♂️ — Shahid Afridi (@SAfridiOfficial) February 24, 2021 “Dear @ICC wondering why the umpires are not allowed to hold bowlers cap even though they are in the same bubble as the players/management and even shake hands at the end of the game?” the all-rounder wrote while expressing dissent and surprise over the protocol. In the pre-Covid-19 era, the umpires were completely fine with the players asking them to hold on to their caps while they would deliver an over. However, with the pandemic outbreak still very much a global threat, the ICC guidelines have prohibited them from doing so. And while Afridi’s tweet to the governing body of international cricket is understandable, the comments made by his fans, blaming the BCCI and the Indian cricket team for something like this seems completely outrageous. Because @ICC is running by some brainless guys. Whose duty is to make sure all the global tournaments must play in India, Australia and England also an uninterrupted @IPL. — Mizbah (@AhmedMizbah) February 24, 2021Dear shahid bhai #ICC is blind to see crowd specially in #ENGvIND match and today in #AUSvNZ. No masks and no S O P's are following their only push #PCB to follow their rules. — Zohaib (@zoubebajwa) February 25, 2021ICC Yet to Update Their Software....Recently they got Hindi Virus — Mir Zahoor (@MirZahoor207) February 24, 2021Ever since the Covid-19 guidelines were set in place, international players have been seen wearing more than one cap at a time while fielding, simply because the others belong to their teammates or the bowlers who were in the middle of their spell. The most recent and arguably the most famous incident of this sort took place during the first T20I match between New Zealand and Australia at the Hagley Oval when Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson was spotted wearing three caps, one on top of another. Kane Williamson looking straight out of Dr Seuss tonight at Hagley Oval #NZvAUS pic.twitter.com/6e7gBE6d3S — BLACKCAPS (@BLACKCAPS) February 22, 2021 Ever since the 2021 season of the Pakistan Super League kicked off on February 20, all six franchises have played two matches each. Afridi’s Multan Sultans played their first match against Shadab Khan’s Islamabad United and second against Wahab Riaz’s Peshawar Zalmi. However, the Sultans have lost both the matches, albeit both were tough fights and are currently sitting at the number five spot of the PSL points table ahead of Sarfaraz Ahmed’s Quetta Gladiators, thanks to the difference in their Net Run Rate.

  11. The next instalment of PUBG Mobile now has a new name and it is called PUBG: New State which will be released for Android and iOS soon. The name of the game was revealed via a tweet which also mentioned the studio that is making the game. The company tweeted that the upcoming game is being made by “PUBG Studio, the creators of the original battle royale, PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS.” This means that the next game is probably not being made in China or by Tencent. Last year, the Indian government banned PUBG Mobile in India as it was developed, supported and distributed by Krafton’s Chinese partners ‘Tencent Games’. PUBG Mobile had garnered a big following in the country where some estimated the game had around 50 million active users. However, the fact that the next mobile game is being developed by Krafton, there’s a good chance we might see its release in India. Welcome to the official Twitter for PUBG: NEW STATE, the latest title by KRAFTON, Inc. and PUBG Studio, the creators of the original battle royale, PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS. Make sure to follow us for the latest news! pic.twitter.com/yjUu6t1wkv — PUBG: NEW STATE (@PUBG_NEWSTATE) February 25, 2021 A recent leak via PlayerIGN on Twitter suggested that PUBG: New Slate might be set in the year 2051 and will have a futuristic vibe to it. The futuristic setting will also extend to weapons, gadgets and probably the map as well according to a Weibo post translation. The game is also said to feature drones and deployable cover which we’ve already seen in other games like Call of Duty: Warzone. © Reuters PUBG: New Slate is not only expected to launch for mobile but for PC and consoles as well with cross-play support. It would be interesting to see how the game mechanics work. Rumours point to a new engine being used for the development. We should know more about the upcoming game in the near future and will keep you updated on all of the developments as they become known. For now though, keep your eyes peeled for more leaks and rumours that may surface before the official announcement. View the full article
  12. Virat Kohli has been having an incredible first couple of sessions of the third Test at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, after the Indian bowling attack dismissed seven of England’s wickets in the first 35 overs at the cost of just 93 runs. Too few spinners selected will prove to be an issue. — Mat Davies (@Ridgmont61) February 24, 2021 When the official Twitter handle of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) revealed the Playing XI for the penultimate Test, fans were shocked to see that the skipper had decided to walk into the grand Motera stadium with just two pacers in Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah, while depending on the spin provided by Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel and Washington Sundar. Kohli was criticised for presumably misreading the pitch to only have two pacemen in the final roster but as it turned out, it was the captain who had the last laugh. Out of the first seven wickets, six have been picked by spinners and just one by Sharma in the third over. View this post on Instagram Talking about taking risks and making daring plays, Kohli decided to place himself at what is considered to be the most dangerous fielding spot on the ground, the silly point. Trying to add more pressure on the middle and lower order of the English batting lineup, Kohli positioned seven fielders around batters like Ben Foakes, Jofra Archer and Jack Leach, while asking for a helmet for himself at standing right in the hitting range of the oppositions. As Mohammed Siraj ran towards the pitch with Kohli’s helmet, fans on Twitter started talking about the skipper’s boldness: Virat Kohli channeling his inner Ricky Ponting by donning the helmet and putting himself up at silly point. Not to forget that appeal #IndvEng pic.twitter.com/YWgKaPXWbO — Bharat Sundaresan (@beastieboy07) February 24, 2021Virat Kohli calls for a helmet and decide to put himself on at silly point. 'Commitment - Virat Kohli.' This is the agression what we are waiting for — Kohli prabhas™ (@Vijaypbvk) February 24, 2021Why @imVkohli is awesome is how he attacks the ball! Name on international captain willing to put on shin guards and stand at silly point?!! @bhogleharsha @beastieboy07 @ShaneWarne @cricbuzz — Karthik (@karti) February 24, 2021Kohli fielding at silly point. When was the last time you saw a captain fielding at silly point?#INDvENG #INDvsENG — अमित ਅਮਿਤ (@DesiOptimystic) February 24, 2021Playing only their third Day-Night international Test, the Indian cricket team have done exceptionally well, so far, even after losing the toss and being asked to bowl first. As the series remains tied at 1-1 after the two matches at Chennai’s Chepauk Stadium, both India and England will try to win the third and fourth Tests of the series in order to get the upper hand in the competition to make it to the final of the World Test Championship. On the other hand, Kane Williamson’s New Zealand squad has already qualified to the final and are waiting for their potential opponents from India, England and Australia, which will be decided by the end of the ongoing series.

  13. The billionaire has decided to build the world's largest zoo in the city of Jamnagar, Gujarat, covering 113 hectares, or 280 acres
  14. The very first delivery of the third Test between India and England bowled by Ishant Sharma at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium caught wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant by surprise because of the kind of bounce the pitch offered. In the same over though, yet another delivery by Sharma swung in the air and showed so much variation after the bounce, that Pant had to dive to secure it without leaking away free runs. Well. That first over has left me confused. #INDvENG — Melinda Farrell (@melindafarrell) February 24, 2021 The six deliveries by the veteran pacer were enough for the fans to sympathise with the 21-year-old keeper and the kind of tough time he was going to have behind the wicket for the next five days in Gujarat. Yet another issue that struck in the minds of Rishabh Pant fans was that the Roorkee-born was being uncharacteristically silent during the first few overs. While pacemen Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah carried out the first spell with the shiny new pink ball, no remarks or words of motivation by Pant were picked up by the stump mic, leaving many viewers worried to the core. Aaj Rishabh Pant ka mood off hai kya??#INDvEND #PinkBallTest #NarendramodiStadium #MoteraStadium #RishabhPant — Anshul (@tea_anshul) February 24, 2021Rishabh Pant energy looking down as a chirpy boy — 𝕊𝕙𝕨𝕖𝕥𝕒 𝕞𝕒𝕝𝕨𝕚 (@shweta_malwi) February 24, 2021Call it the nervousness of playing the very first international match in the newly-renovated Motera stadium or the week’s worth of break from cricket between the second and third Tests, but Pant’s energy did seem to be low in the first few overs, at least vocally. But then, skipper Virat Kohli brought one of his greatest Test cricket weapons in Ravichandran Ashwin into attack early in the first session and along came Pant’s commentary. Soon enough, chants of “come on, Ash… come on, Ash” began to erupt. Pant quickly started motivating the rest of his teammates as well, including local boy Axar Patel who has removed two big England batsmen from the crease, so far, in Jonny Bairstow and Zak Crawley. Even the spectators noticed the shift in Pant’s game and started tweeting about it: The way rishabh pant is saying"come on Ash"️ — 𝐑𝐚𝐠𝐢𝐧𝐢 𝐌𝐢𝐬𝐡𝐫𝐚 ♡ (@weirdest_one_) February 24, 2021Finally he started talking..I was wondering aaj Rishabh Pant ka maun vrat hai kya Entertainment sorted 🤭 #INDvENG — Prakriti Yadav (@Prakriti_99) February 24, 2021The hosts dominated the English side in the first session of the third Test. Giving away just 81 runs while dismissing four of England’s top-order batsmen, including the extremely dangerous Joe Root early in the game sure looks like a good sign for what is to come for the Men in Blue in Motera.

  15. India was the second most targeted country when it comes to cyberattacks in Asia according to a report by IBM. Last year, a report by Niti Aayog suggested that phishing and social engineering account for 57% of the attacks followed by malware attacks, DoS and ransomware. It was also reported that the majority of the attacks came from China and other countries such as Russia, Pakistan, Ukraine, Vietnam and North Korea. © pexels-saksham-choudhary However, now according to Sudeep Das, Security Software Technical Sales Leader, IBM Technology Sales, India and South Asia, ransomware was the top attack type in the country where it rose to an astounding 40% share. Ransomware usually involves stealing, encrypting and using threats to leak personal data unless the ransom isn’t paid. The most common form of ransomware used is called “Sodinokibi” where it exploits an Oracle WebLogic vulnerability to gain access to the victim’s hardware. The ransomware then tries to execute itself by elevating user rights so that it can access all files and resources on the system. The ransomware also has the ability to wipe out all files in the backup folder as well. So far, it is estimated that Sodinokibi has stolen around 21TB of data and leaked about 43% of the data. The group has managed to successfully earn $123 million in the past year according to IBM's 2021 X-Force Threat Intelligence Index. © Unsplash According to IBM’s report, India’s finance and insurance sector were the most attacked industries consisting of 60 per cent of the attacks. While the attacks took place throughout 2020, most of the attacks were detected in the months of May and July. Cybercriminals also used public health information to lure victims and carry out attacks on the vaccine supply chain. “The 2020 threat landscape in India was largely shaped by the pandemic. As the pandemic’s timeline of events and progress unfolded, so did attack trends shift," Sudeep Das, security software technical sales leader, IBM Technology Sales, India/South Asia said in a statement. © Unsplash Having said that, top technology companies such as Google, Dropbox and Microsoft were also targeted during the pandemic. E-Commerce websites like Amazon and Paypal weren’t spared either as the companies made the top 10 list of targeted websites. Source: IBM View the full article
  16. The PlayStation 5 has been hard to get a hold of in India ever since it sold out on launch day earlier this month. This didn’t stop scalpers from starting listing overpriced PlayStation 5 India units on classified websites which were taken down, thanks to the gaming community’s protest. There has been no word about the official restock but it seems like it may happen sooner than anticipated. © unsplash First spotted by IGN India, Sony’s official Indian e-commerce platform recently changed the status of the PlayStation 5 listing from ‘Sold Out’ to ‘Notify Me’. Once clicking on the button customers will then receive an email stating “nearest store will contact you once the product is in stock.” This could be indicative that Sony India might be preparing to restock the console next month and trying to get a good idea of how much stock is indeed needed according to the demand. IGN India also reported that Sony is planning to bring PS5 to restock by March 2021 according to the website’s retailer sources. © unsplash It is worth pointing out that a specific date for the restock has not been set or communicated to retailers as of now. It will be interesting to see when the restock will actually land in the country especially since countries like Canada, the U.S and other regions have been getting frequent restocks on multiple retail outlets. Earlier this week, there were reports that Sony authorised retailers were taking part in scalping the PlayStation 5 themselves. However, it seems Sony India has taken notice of the current scalping situation and issued the following statement to MensXP: “We have taken serious note of the feedback of our patrons that have been made on our social media handle and reportedly on other platforms. We sincerely expect that the third party retail partners operate in compliance with the legal framework of our country and follow ethical business practices. We have a 'zero tolerance policy’ for any practices that are inconsistent with the afore-said. We have taken steps, as deemed appropriate and available with the company including but not limited to discontinuing our association with such channel partners.” © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The PlayStation 5 Disc Edition retails in India for Rs 49,990 and comes with a one-year warranty card for Indian customers. We advise not paying over the retail price to curb the scalping nuisance in the country and wait for the official restock to appear. The PlayStation 5 Digital Edition is also yet to go on sale in India, however there is no word when the model will be available to purchase in India. To know more about the PlayStation 5, read our official review here where we talk about what we like about the console and where it needs improvement. Source: IGN India View the full article
  17. With the third of four Test matches of the India-England series set to take place at Ahmedabad’s Motera stadium from February 24, 2021, the captain of the English side Joe Root opened up about his team’s strategy heading into the pink-ball Test. "If we can exploit that [events in Adelaide] then that's something we will look to do. But you have to earn the right, make early inroads, build pressure for periods of time and put balls in good areas, challenging defences. That will be our focus; [36 all out] is more for them to worry about, for it to be in the back of their minds," Root said according to ESPNcricinfo. England are hopeful that recent memories from India's previous pink-ball Test will play on the home team's minds #INDvENG — ESPNcricinfo (@ESPNcricinfo) February 23, 2021 The first Test of India’s 2020-21 tour of Australia took place at the Adelaide Oval which happened to be a Day-Night match too. After winning the toss, skipper Virat Kohli decided to bat first and the batting order did fairly well in the first innings, scoring 244 runs in 93.1 overs with Kohli being the highest scorer (74). It was however the second innings of the match which created history for the Men in Blue in the worst way possible when the entire batting lineup got wrapped up for 36 runs and not a single player had scored in double digits, making the innings the most upsetting ever since the inception of Indian cricket.
