Guests can now join live Periscope broadcasts

Monday, February 4th, 2019

In case you've forgotten about it, Periscope is Twitter's somewhat-unpopular streaming platform designed for use on iOS and Android devices. There haven't been any major feature additions in well over a year, but that changes today. Periscope users can now invite guests onto their streams, similar to what Instagram added in 2017.

Starting today, broadcasters can go live with guests and invite anyone to join. When guests request to join a stream, a button appears on the broadcaster's phone.

Gmail Smart Compose is going live as an ‘experimental feature’

Thursday, May 10th, 2018

Gmail Smart Compose, a nifty new feature that predicts what you're going to type and fills it in with a press of the tab key, is going live. It's only available on the desktop version of the new Gmail, and to use it, you'll have to enable experimental features in Gmail's settings.

To try Smart Compose, tick the box that says "Enable experimental access" in the General tab of Gmail's settings—that option only appears if you're using the new Gmail, and I actually had to switch from new to old to new again to get it to show up.
