Then, things got extremely interesting the next day, when the first ever footage of Google co-founder Larry Page’s secret flying car was released. Then just a day later, there were news reports gushing in of Page’s partner Sergey Brin working on a similar project. And the cherry on the top was the following news of ride hailing service Uber working on project “UberAIR”, where passengers could book themselves a flying car.

Back on Earth, Facebook held an event revealing some important new figures with regards to the platform, like the Messenger reaching 184 million monthly active users in India. Also, keeping customization at its core, Facebook made some India-specific announcements, in addition to some other new features, like camera frames for the Indian audience.

The refreshed Nokia 3310 was in news too, with reports in it being officially launched in India in the coming week. However, HMD Global denied the reports and said the announcement of the date of launch, and availability will be revealing in a couple of weeks.
