Why is fa­cial recog­ni­tion such a big deal for Ap­ple?

Face­book has in­cred­i­bly changed our lives! By cre­at­ing a vir­tual world, we have for­got­ten what is real and what isn’t. Face­book has been our friend in leisure, stress, sad­ness and when not! Last year, Face­book Inc. came out with some­thing that was strictly busi­ness. You may call it some­thing like a Face­book, but it helps keep­ing ev­ery­one in the of­fice on the same page and con­stantly con­nected. But what needs to be noted is that Face­book is not the only one to come ahead with ser­vice for work­place com­mu­ni­ca­tion. We have had Slack, Mi­crosoft At­las­sian and Asana.

Slow and steady wins the race!

Al­though it’s just been a year, Work­place is re­ceived quite well in some com­pa­nies. It is con­sid­ered to be an en­ter­prise specif­i­cally for busi­ness or­ga­ni­za­tions to com­mu­ni­cate with their co-work­ers. Ini­tially there were 1,000 busi­nesses mak­ing use of this ser­vice. Op­posed to that, Work­place now works across 30,000 busi­nesses houses.

Work­place comes forth as a col­lab­o­ra­tion pro­gramme that links

ev­ery­one in the com­pany. A lot of Face­book Inc. prod­ucts have fiz­zled out and so Face­book no longer works on it. But since Face­book Inc. is work­ing to build new fea­tures it tells us that it ain’t far­ing that bad af­ter all. The fact that they re­leased new up­dates shows that Face­book is tak­ing the en­ter­prise world by a storm, even though it did not get the proper boost ini­tially.

What’s New?

The new fea­tures that have been added to the al­ready ex­ist­ing ser­vice are screen shar­ing and a desk­top app for chat­ting- for Mac and Win­dows users. The app is a good thought be­cause this will not waste time of the work­ers open­ing and clos­ing the browser. The user-in­ter­face is quite sim­i­lar to that of face­book mes­sen­ger, mak­ing it eas­ier for ev­ery­one to stay con­nected at all times. It is also said that Face­book Work­place will have group video chats/ con­ver­sa­tions. This step makes it look like Work­place is ready to cross paths with Google’s Hang­out. So who says work can’t be fun. Face­book Inc. is all set to step in and help you with your work, not just your leisure time. Al­though it started off on a slow note, Face­book Work­place does seem promis­ing enough to be taken se­ri­ously by the busi­ness world. It is al­ready 30,000 busi­nesses strong but still needs that push to bring it into the main­stream mar­ket.
