Payment system iDEAL acquired

The European banking consortium EPI has acquired iDEAL. Previously, this payment system was owned by Currence, a Dutch banking consortium that included banks like ING, Rabobank, and ABN Amro. The new system EPI will be working with is called Wero, which will first be rolled out in Belgium, France, and Germany, after which the term 'iDEAL' will also disappear in the Netherlands. We can expect this change in 2025.

Google Assistant is becoming smarter

Virtual assistants are currently useful for specific tasks, such as operating smart homes and similar functions. The AI model, also used in Google's AI chatbot Bard, is expected to enhance the voice assistant. 


Sharing is caring according to WhatsApp

Depending on your WhatsApp version, several business features have been implemented, including the option to share your screen during a video call. Platforms like Teams, Zoom, or Google Meet have long offered screen sharing capabilities, but WhatsApp aims to position itself as an alternative in the market with this feature.

Following this, with the 'region to share' app, you can now share only a part of your screen in Teams.
