Xiaomi also launched its new wireless earbuds while Google brought Web Stories to Discover Feed. This and more in this tech wrap.

Slack to get Instagram-like Stories and it's not for what you think it is

Team collaboration tool Slack is also getting the Instagram Stories treatment this year. The firm won’t just introduce stories but will also introduce push-to-talk audio. With the introduction of these features, the firm thinks that constant video calling time will cut down along with the time taken by inefficient conversations.
