  BSNL Rs 247 Prepaid Plan: Things You Should Know
Posted by: nairrk - 11-27-2020, 07:42 AM - Forum: Cellular Services - No Replies

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has given a facelift to their Rs 247 plan. Now teh plan comes with a 40 days validity instead of 30 days.

The plan comes with 250 minutes for local and national calling benefits. The plan comes with 3GB of data per day and once the user crosses the data limit, the speed will be reduced to 80kbps. The plan comes with 100 messages lasting the same amount of time as the validity of the plan, which is 30 days. But as a part of a promotional offer, BSNL has extended the validity of the plan by 10 days, and the final validity period stands at 40 days but only if you subscribe to the plan before 30th November 2020.

If we compare the same plan with Jio's 3GB data plan, it offers the same amount of 3GB data everyday along with 1000 minutes for Jio to Non-Jio calls and unlimited minutes for Jio to Jio calls. The plan also provides a complimentary subscription to Jio apps along with 100 SMSes per day. The plan is priced at Rs 349.

In somewhat related news, BSNL was slapped with a fine of Rs 30 crores by TRAI as the telecom operator failed to block the defrauders who were practicing phishing activities over their network. BSNL was fined with the highest amount of fine when compared to other operators including Airtel, Vi and Jio.

Almost 60-70% of the fraudulent messages and phishing attempts to customers have been on the BSNL network, according to industry officials.

  Airtel launches two educational DTH channels for Class 6 to 12 students
Posted by: nairrk - 11-24-2020, 01:03 PM - Forum: Airtel Digital TV - No Replies

[Image: 20201123_170832_0000.jpg]

Airtel Digital TV, the DTH arm of Bharti Airtel and Vedantu, an interactive online learning platform for students, today announced a partnership under which, two dedicated DTH channels – Vedantu Materclasses – will be available exclusively to the 17 million Airtel Digital TV customers at an affordable price of Rs. 4 per day. The channels will cater to students from Classes 6 to 10 and Classes 11 to 12 respectively and will cover Maths and Science.

With the introduction of these 2 channels, Airtel and Vedantu 'want to make quality education accessible to students across India by leveraging the deep reach of Airtel'.

The learning will be delivered by a faculty including graduates from IIT and AIIMS with proven track records in teaching. The medium of teaching will be a mix of English and Hindi with plans underway to add regional language content, wherever possible.

Commenting on the partnership, Sunil Taldar, CEO & Director, DTH Business, Bharti Airtel, said: “We are delighted to partner with Vedantu to democratise high-quality education by making it highly affordable and accessible through the home TV. The TV screen is evolving beyond entertainment to becoming a hub for interactive education and learning that can be delivered in a safe and affordable manner, especially in these unprecedented times".

"We are confident that this service will be well received by students and parents and education on TV will become a permanent feature which will benefit millions of students", he added.

Vamsi Krishna, CEO & Co-Founder, Vedantu, commented, “Having established Vedantu as the unanimous choice for LIVE online learning in the metros and key cities, our next mission is to make our highly curated teachers and content available to a vast majority of Indian students. As a brand we are going the extra mile to make quality education accessible. Our partnership with Airtel DTH is in this direction and we are delighted to use our collective strengths to sustain India’s learning needs in smaller towns and villages.”

As per the companies, both of them believe that with their deeper penetration, 'the home TV screen will provide a ubiquitous medium through which to impart knowledge and bridge the gap between quality teachers and students'.

India has a total of 260 million school-going children. In particular, those in small towns and villages have little or no access to high-quality learning due to limited broadband access as well as a shortage of faculty. Some even travel long distances for tuitions and this is challenging especially during the current pandemic. Airtel and Vedantu believe that with its deeper penetration, the home TV screen will provide a ubiquitous medium through which to impart knowledge and bridge the gap between quality teachers and students.

11 hours of fresh interactive content will be available daily to students with repeat telecast for students who missed the class or want to revise the content. To make the learning more fun and engaging, the classes will also include interactive quizzes to which students can respond to using the TV remote.

  WhatsApp Disappearing Messages feature now available in India: How to use it on Android, iOS
Posted by: nairrk - 11-24-2020, 07:20 AM - Forum: Technology & Web Services - No Replies

The Disappearing Messages feature is available on both individual and group chats. While for one-to-one chats any person can enable the feature, group chats would need the admins to do the deed.

As of now, WhatsApp is only allowing a time duration of 7 days for the disappearing messages. This means users cannot set a custom time for the messages to vanish. Once the feature is enabled, messages sent going forward will automatically vanish for both parties after 7 days.

How to enable the feature on Android

*Open WhatsApp on your smartphone.
*Head over to a chat and then click on the contact name.
*Tap on ‘Disappearing messages’.
*Turn the feature on by tapping on the ‘On’ option.

How to enable the feature on iPhone

*Open WhatsApp on iPhone.
*Head over to the chat where you would like to enable the feature.
*Tap on the contact name.
*Scroll down and click on ‘Disappearing messages’.
*Now tap on the ‘On’ option.

WhatsApp has been working on the ‘Disappearing Messages’ feature for quite some time now. The Facebook-owned giant has now finally started rolling out the feature for users in India. The feature is available on both Android as well as iOS. However, there is a way to enable the feature and here’s how you can do it:

WhatsApp’s new Disappearing Messages feature basically allows users to have conversations of various sorts and will ensure their privacy. Users will be able to send and receive messages that will vanish after a certain period of time. Just like Snapchat, the user will be able to decide the duration of the message, after which it will be deleted from the chat.

Instant messaging app WhatsApp is reportedly working on a new feature that would let users mute their videos before posting those to their friends and family members or putting them up as status.

As spotted by WABetaInfo, a website that tracks WhatsApp, the Facebook-owned company is now developing a mute video feature and it has appeared on a beta update. In the screenshot shared by the WhatsApp features tracker, one can see the option of muting the video along with the trimming option.
