WhatsApp is found to be working on expanding its multi-device feature to let users access the instant messaging app on multiple devices based on Android and iOS. At present, the feature works in beta as an opt-in offering designed for WhatsApp on the Web, desktop, and Facebook Portal. It allows users to access WhatsApp on secondary devices even when their phones don’t have active Internet access. WhatsApp may initially look for Android tablets and iPad as the next potential devices for expanding multi-device support. However, we may also see mobile devices based on Android and iOS getting its access to let you use a single WhatsApp account on multiple phones.
According to a report by WhatsApp features tracker WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is currently testing an update to its existing multi-device feature — multi-device 2.0 — to bring it for Android and iOS devices. A screenshot has also been shared by the source to give reference about the development. It suggests downloading WhatsApp messages on mobile devices.
WABetaInfo reports that the secondary mobile device would be able to download all existing messages from the server when a user would open WhatsApp on that device for the first time. The entire chat history appears to be end-to-end encrypted.
In July, WhatsApp officially started testing its multi-device feature in beta for people using the messaging app on their desktop, Web browser, and Facebook Portal. It provided the option to users to continue to access their WhatsApp conversations on up to four of these secondary devices simultaneously, without ensuring that their phone has an active Internet access or is in close proximity.
The initial rollout has, however, missed a large part of the users who want to access the messaging app on multiple mobile devices. WhatsApp may eventually reach them by providing its multi-device feature for Android and iOS devices in the future.
WABetaInfo notes in its report that the expanded multi-device feature is currently under development on a WhatsApp for iOS beta release, though the Facebook-owned messaging app is said to be working on its Android version as well.
WhatsApp may initially reserve the new multi-device update for Android tablets and iPad. It is, though, likely to be available for users on Android phones and the iPhone in the future to let people access a single WhatsApp account on both their primary and secondary mobile devices.
In addition to multi-device 2.0, WhatsApp is seen to be working on an improved voice message experience by introducing a dot on the waveforms available before sending voice messages to let users seek the audio clip. It appears on WhatsApp for Android beta 126.96.36.199, though some users on the beta version 188.8.131.52 also received that experience, WABetaInfo reports.
WABetaInfo has also shared a reference about the placement of the under-developing reactions on WhatsApp for Android beta 184.108.40.206. Message reactions appear to be available just under the message bubble. Beta testers are yet to see the change, though.
Cultivating your brand effectively in the digital environment adds to your brand equity. Your website presence is one of the most important reflections of your brand. The website colors, font, and content–including words and imagery, accessibility, and performance–are part of your brand identity and the user’s experience.
“Judgments’ on a company’s credibility are 75 percent based on the company’s website design.”
– (Web Credibility Research from Stanford)
Web design services have been around for over 30 years and has reached a market size of $40.8B and a growth rate of 3.1 percent in 2021. (2) As technology evolves, user behaviors have changed along with it. Having a design expert who keeps up with the latest changes is the difference between having a less than satisfying website and a modern website that provides a great user experience.
The Importance of a User Experience Design
Don’t look for a “web designer” because we are no longer designing for the web. Instead, look for a UX designer because we need to design for the user.
Web design has evolved and diverged into multiple disciplines, from web graphic design; user interface design; authoring, including standardized code and proprietary software; user experience design; and search engine optimization. However, from thousands of inexpensive, ready-made website templates to the popularity of design components and drag-and-drop WYSIWYG content management systems, people wonder why they would need to hire a designer or developer at all.
“Don’t look for a “web designer” because we are no longer designing for the web. Instead, look for a UX designer because we need to design for the user”
“38 percent of people will stop engaging with a website if the content or layout is unattractive”
Gone are the days when designing for the web was mainly making superficial, cosmetic dressing. Web designers have morphed into user experience (UX) designers. The qualified UX designer will not only have a traditional art background with technical coding skills, but also have knowledge in business and marketing. They will use the acumen of design thinking and data research to target the right audience and successfully design a website that reflects your brand to those specific users in an engaging, accessible and enjoyable way. It is the difficult task of balancing design novelty with usability.
How Design Impacts Conversions
A well-designed website can help with conversions in many ways. These are the top three key areas:
Ease of Use
In modern design, websites are cleaner, simpler, and to the point. Clear navigations on all devices will help get the user to their destination in the shortest time possible.
The tone of your website directly affects how the user feels about your brand. The colors, imagery used, graphical elements, tone of the copy and typography evoke certain responses in the brain. Understanding the theory behind this will help create a design that can provide an enjoyable customer experience.
Call to Action
Designing effective call to actions can guide or drive your user’s attention to where you want them to go. This is especially important in generating new leads.
A successful website with these key elements will see engagement and conversion rates go up because users will more likely come back. The odds are that you will have a better chance of converting repeat users to paid customers. More often than not, repeat users who have had delightful experiences will share and help you spread the word, which is the cheapest and best form of advertisement. To achieve the above key elements, it is a wise return in investment to hire UX experts who can deliver these user-centric goals.

Parkland Memorial Hospital and Knox County Hospital Join as Pilot Partners in support of THSA, HASA, and Audacious Inquiry on the STAR HIE Program Award from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
BALTIMORE and AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The Texas Health Services Authority (THSA), HASA (a health information exchange in Texas covering multiple regions), and Audacious Inquiry, a national industry-shaping health IT company, today announced the addition of Parkland Memorial Hospital and Knox County Hospital as pilot hospital partners. The partnership is focused on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)’ Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) Strengthening the Technical Advancement and Readiness of Public Health Agencies via Health Information Exchange (STAR HIE) Program. The STAR HIE Program supports innovative health information exchange services that benefit public health agencies and improves the health information exchange services available to support communities disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. THSA’s project under the STAR HIE Program, focuses on modernizing hospital capacity reporting across Texas, to ensure health systems can easily share data with state health departments and federal response authorities during public health emergencies, including the COVID-19 pandemic.
Through the STAR HIE Program, THSA and HASA are working to demonstrate standards-based, real-time reporting of hospital capacity data for the purpose of reducing burden on hospitals and improving data fidelity. As part of this effort, THSA and HASA are leveraging the Situational Awareness for Emergency Response (SANER) Project, an industry-wide collaboration led by Audacious Inquiry, to adopt and test Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) standards for more effective data-sharing among health systems and public health entities across the state. Audacious Inquiry, the technology partner for the project, will work with Parkland Memorial Hospital and Knox County Hospital to identify how best to adopt the specifications within their unique systems.
“Knox County Hospital is not afraid of a challenge,” said Stephen Kuehler, CEO of Knox County Hospital District. “We are proud to represent the rural healthcare community in this pilot project to ease the burden of public health reporting during a pandemic.”
“We pride ourselves with being part of innovative projects that provide up-to-date information when needed,” said Joseph Longo, MBA, CHCIO, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer at Parkland. “Being able to rapidly share data among our peers will enable all of us to better serve the patients in our communities.”
In September 2020, THSA was one of five organizations across the country to receive funding from ONC to develop health information exchange services that benefit public health agencies and improve health information exchange services that support communities disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“By joining as pilot partners on our STAR HIE Program project efforts, Parkland Memorial Hospital and Knox County Hospital are leading the way for other hospitals across Texas,” said George Gooch, Chief Executive Officer at THSA. “We’re thankful for the support of Parkland and Knox, and we’re eager to work with them on testing the standards and policies that will make it easier for hospitals everywhere to more easily share capacity data.”
“I appreciate the leadership of Knox County Hospital and Parkland Memorial Hospital joining us to explore how we streamline, improve and reduce the burden of capacity reporting while maintaining the safety rails and privacy of data. Leveraging the Texas Health Information Exchange infrastructure, its governance, existing agreements, and connections makes total sense. HASA is proud to partner with THSA, Audacious Inquiry, and our hospitals to broaden our value to the healthcare community in Texas,” said Phil Beckett, Chief Executive Officer at HASA.
“The pilot partnership commitments of Parkland Memorial Hospital and Knox County Hospital represent an important step in the development of The SANER Project,” said Scott Afzal, President of Audacious Inquiry. “Audacious Inquiry is proud to work with Parkland and Knox to help improve the way hospitals everywhere share capacity data and prepare for future health emergencies.”
Despite recent advances in technology, the ability to share critical healthcare data in real-time is not universal. In the current COVID-19 pandemic, entities have often relied on manual reporting through fax, phone call, and email, which reduces the effectiveness of responses to the virus. SANER leverages application programming interface (API) standards for health information sharing based on HL7® FHIR. It seeks to simplify public health reporting for hospitals across Texas through HIE infrastructure while also supporting Texas’ local health departments and emergency management agencies.

In recent news, Tesla has introduced a new option for users to subscribe to its advanced driver assistance software which will offer the full self-driving capability. The company stated that the software does not make the vehicle completely autonomous and highlighted that subscribers would need to ensure that there is a fully attentive driver in the vehicle who has their hands on the wheel.
Currently, the self-driving software is available for vehicles in the United States but may be subjected to move globally. the subscription charge for the software is $199 per month which is more feasible than paying $10,000 upfront. Moreover, this software would only work only vehicles that rock the Full Self-Driving computer version 3.0 or above. however, upgrading your vehicle to the latest hardware will cost around $1500.
As of now, Tesla has been testing the software for city streets which is currently in beta version and will be available to a limited number of customers.

Dutch gaming regulator de Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) has granted 10 online gaming licences in time for the Netherlands’ igaming market launch on 1 October.
The recipients of the licences will be announced by the KSA later this week.
After initially expecting to receive up to 40 licence applications, the KSA said it had received 28 by April, with all applicants having paid their €48,000 licence fee.
KSA chairman René Jansen has said he expects more licencees to be added in the near future as further applications are expected from several companies. He also suggested that the market won’t look complete until July 2022.
Jansen added: “High requirements are imposed on a license, including in the field of addiction prevention and consumer protection, and the KSA tests rigorously.”
Prior to the market launch, the Dutch government has called for stricter sanctions towards unlicensed operators.
In addition to the KSA shutting down illegal bingo and lottery operations in the country, a 4% turnover fine was also announced for any operators illegally offering gambling. Most recently, the regulator fined operator Tipico €531,250 for illegally offering gambling to Dutch customers. Tipico argued that it was not specificaly targeting Dutch customers, but the KSA said that this was irrelevant.
As a result of the Dutch Remote Gambling Act (KOA), the gambling levy for the Dutch market has increased from 1.75% to 1.95% of gross gaming revenue.
