A new feature on Spotify

The official launch of the new real-time lyrics synced to music will begin today (30/06) in 26 countries around the world. Only 4 of them had a similar service available on the market. This represents a musical revolution for these countries including Brazil, India, Thailand and Singapore. The feature will offer real-time lyrics in the language in which the songs are sung. Users will access the feature by tapping “Lyrics” at the bottom of the “Now Playing” screen. 


WhatsApp Pay only lasted one week in Brazil

WhatsApp wants to make it as easy for its users to send money as if they were sending a message to their contacts. However, one week after its launch, Brazil decided to suspend this service in its territory. The country's central bank says it did not have the opportunity to analyze the payment service of the U.S. giant prior to its deployment. 


Facebook boycott

$56 billions is what the Facebook boycott cost in just 24 hours. Many major brands such as Honda, Hershey, Coca-Cola, Starbucks, Ben & Jerry's... have decided to stop advertising on the social network in order to denounce racist and hateful content on the platform. "Stop hate for profit" is the name of this campaign launched in the United States. 


The Social Media Summit will take place in Brussels on July the 2nd

On Thursday July the second, the Steingenberger Witcher’s Hotel in Brussels will host the latest edition of the Social Media Summit. The conference, organized by Digimedia, will gather Belgian experts on the field of social media for a whole afternoon of discussion and insights with actors such as LinkedIn, Snapchat, Ogilvy & Social.Lab, L’Oréal and many more.
