Bolt secures €100M investment from Naya Capital

Bolt secures €100M investment from Naya Capital

Ride hailing app Bolt, formerly Taxify, has announced that it’s securing a €100-million investment from UK based investors, Naya Capital Management. The amount is to assist the company in expanding its service in Europe and Africa. This is to include its transport, food home delivery, and electric scooter rental services.

It is not clear exactly what terms were considered to come up with the deal or whether Naya Capital will have a share of the app after investing. This round of financing, together with a previous one, makes it more than €300 million of capital that Bolt has pulled together.

The company CEO Markus Villig stated that the coronavirus pandemic has “temporarily changed our movement habits, but the long-term trends have stayed the same.” He believes that the world is heading towards a more environmentally-friendly transport, and the popularity of owning a personal car is decreasing. 

Masroor Siddiqui, the Managing Partner, and CIO, of the Naya Capital Management says that they are delighted to have the opportunity to invest in Bolt. He credited the company for establishing itself as “one of the most competitive and innovative players in global mobility.” 

Early on in the coronavirus pandemic, the company had sought for a credit support bailout from the Estonian government. This is after a switch to quarantine-friendly services failed to sufficiently improve its finances. Bolt asked for €50-million in loans or public credit guarantees after commercial lenders refused to take part in the existing state guarantees.

Bolt provides transportation services in more than 150 cities in Europe and Africa. During recent months, the company has accelerated placing Bolt Food on the market and is now offering the service in 12 countries as well, and has activated a business delivery service too.

How to lock your Facebook profile from public view

How to lock your Facebook profile from public view

Are you the kind that does not want everyone to easily have access to your Facebook profile with just a search of your name? Well, you could have the answer here. The Facebook app has a feature that lets you lock your profile, preventing anyone that is not your friend from seeing anything about it. This includes photos or posts shared on the page, or even expanding the profile picture.

The feature is currently on roll out in India and is primarily aimed at ensuring the safety of women users. However, even men can easily opt for the locked profile feature. Apparently, the feature comes as a successor of the profile picture guard, and has been reinvented after looking into account feedback from users.

To lock your Facebook profile, go to the profile and tap on the more options button. From here, select Lock Profile. You should be taken through exactly what locking a profile means after which you can accept to lock your profile. Once the profile lock is enabled, other users will only be able to see just the profile pictures of the person, but will not be able to expand it or see anything else on the page. A blue badge will show that the profile is locked.

On your side, you will not be able to post publicly. A pop up will appear reminding you that the profile is locked. A public post will be possible only once the profile is unlocked again. Also, you can still be tagged on other people’s posts, but these will not appear on your timeline till you allow it.

Facebook activity in CoVID-19 Lockdown

The coronavirus outbreak and the consequential lockdown has seen apps like Facebook an increase in usage and customer interaction. Facebook has utilized the time to effectively roll out more features to its products, including the ability to create your own avatars.

The company also increased the limits of the number of people that can simultaneously be present in a group video call. Facebook also announced the Rooms feature recently and integrated it into Facebook Messenger, Instagram, Portal, and WhatsApp.

It also rolled out Dark Mode to all its apps and websites. The social media firm launched a standalone Facebook Gaming app, added Quiet Mode to its mobile app, and introduced standalone Facebook Messenger apps for macOS and Windows.

How to choose who can reply to your tweets

How to choose who can reply to your tweets

The openness on Twitter lets everyone, including people you don’t follow or who don’t follow you, to reply or write their opinion on your tweet. Much as it’s fun and engaging, it creates trouble reaching your target audience and impacts the meaning of the message put out. If you are the kind that does not like everyone responding to your tweets, a saviour could be here.

Twitter is working on a way for you to control your tweets and the replies on them. Select users across the world are already testing the ability to control who can respond to their tweets and who can’t. This allows you to easily allow a limit on your tweets to a specific group of people and do away with unwanted replies.

Basically, before every tweet, there’s the ability to choose who replies to it from three options: everyone, only people you follow and only people you mention.

Everyone is more like the standard tweet format we’ve all been using. It allows anyone on Twitter to comment on your tweet. 
The ‘only people you follow’ option allows only people you follow on Twitter to respond to your tweets.
The ‘only people you mention’ option allows only users tagged in a tweet to respond to your tweet.

Good enough, everyone will be able to see the conversations, but won’t have the right to engage in. How? Tweets with the last two settings will be labelled and the reply icon will be greyed out so that it’s clear for people that they can’t reply on the specific tweet. People who can’t reply will still be able to view, Retweet, Retweet with Comment, and like these Tweets.

For now, only a limited group of people globally on Twitter for iOS, Android, and Twitter web can tweet with these settings. We are yet to know when the official roll-out timeline of the feature will be. But at least, the new limit reply feature will keep unnecessary tweets away and make conversations on the platform more meaningful than ever before.

Way 2: Recover Deleted Voice Memos on iPhone without Backup

If you fail to find your missing recording in the recently deleted folder, there’s a good chance that it has been permanently deleted. For those who have recently created a backup of iPhone, they can recover voice memo via the backup. However, what if you don’t have a backup, or your backup doesn’t include the recording you need? Fortunately, some powerful third-party iPhone data recovery software can help you find removed recordings from your iPhone directly.

Gihosoft Free iPhone Data Recovery is a data recovery software that is worth a try.

  • Step 3: After scanning, you can recover deleted voice recordings from iPhone backup.

Way 4: Restore Deleted Voice Memos on iPhone via iCloud Backup

Similarly, if you have made a backup of your iPhone to iCloud before deleting the voice memos, you can restore your iPhone from the iCloud backup to recover your voice memos. Nevertheless, same with iTunes, this way requires all current content and settings to be eased from your device. If you don’t mind that happening, follow steps below to restore deleted voice memos on iPhone from iCloud backup:

  • Step 1: Head over to Settings > General > Reset and choose “Erase All Content and Settings”. Then follow the onscreen prompts to factory reset your iPhone.
  • Step 2: After your iPhone reboots, set it up and choose “Restore from iCloud Backup” in the App & Data page.
  • Step 3: Sign into your iCloud account and choose the backup file that includes the deleted voice memos you need, then wait for the restore process to be done.

When the restore process is completed, you can go to the Voice Memos app on your iPhone to check if the deleted recordings are back.

Bonus: How to Recover Trimmed Voice Memos from iPhone

Unfortunately, there is no way to retrieve original voice memo after you trimmed it unless you’ve synced it with iTunes or iCloud , as the trimmed voice memo will replace the original one immediately. In this case, you need to use the Way 2 and Way 3 to recover trimmed voice memos from your iPhone backup.

How to Auto Generate Subtitles from Videos Online and Offline

We need subtitles when the characters of a movie or video speak in a language that we do not understand. Also, adding subtitles to instructional videos is a must to make the viewers understand about a specific process or product. But it is not easy to add subtitles to videos manually as it would require a lot of effort to make subtitles word by word and sentence by sentence, and add them in every scene. Moreover, the subtitles must sync with the audio and video to avoid confusion among the viewers.

Auto Generate Subtitles from Videos.

How to set a bedtime reminder on YouTube

How to set a bedtime reminder on YouTube

Sometimes watching videos can become addictive and even elevate to being a time consumer. In a bid to help you manage your time better, YouTube is adding a bedtime reminder feature to its mobile apps.

The feature, like you’d imagine, allows you to set specific times when you want to see a reminder to stop watching videos and go to bed. It is all up to you. The reminder can interrupt your video watching or can wait until the video finishes – based on your setting. 

YouTube has made the feature only available on mobile devices – Android and iPhones, but not iPads.

How to set a YouTube bedtime reminder

Sign in to YouTube by opening your mobile app, and then go to Settings. Turn Remind me when it’s time for bed on or off. Then, select a start and end time for the reminder.

You can also turn on the bedtime reminder by tapping your YouTube profile picture, and then going to Time Watched

If you want to finish your video before seeing the bedtime reminder, select Wait until I finish my video to show reminder when setting up.

You can snooze your bedtime reminder, which will temporarily turn off the reminder for 10 minutes. Your video will start again without interruption. After 10 minutes, the reminder will appear again.
