9) Facebook Starts Rolling Out Scheduled Live BroadCasts

Live video is great, but it can suck if you don’t know when a live stream will take place and you miss out on an important showing. Sure, you can catch up after the fact, but the live experience brings so much more, such as real-time reactions to whatever it is you’re seeing, as well as interaction with the broadcaster and other viewers.
Well, for those who want to make sure they never miss a bit of action, Facebook is rolling out a great new feature — scheduled broadcasts! The feature is as you’d expect the broadcaster can set a time and date to alert their fans of a forthcoming planned broadcast. Users can join in on the broadcast 3 minutes before it’s scheduled to begin.

10) Google Flights

Google is hooking up their Flights search engine with some nice changes. Everything in this go ’round seems to be about helping you save money.
The biggest way Google is going about this is alerting you to historical price data to estimate when a flight’s price may increase. When looking to book a flight, a notification may pop up letting you know when a price for that particular flight is expected to increase.
Google will even give an estimate of how many days it’ll increase, how much it’ll increase, and the percentage of how often the increase has happened for similar routes in the past. Of course, they can’t guarantee that history will repeat itself, but it’s better to make an informed decision about when to buy your ticket than taking a mere guess
