AR ads come to Facebook, YouTube gets an incognito mode
This is CNet, and here are the stories that matter right now.
Facebook is experimenting with augmented reality ads in the news feed.
The initiative will let customers virtually try out items like sunglasses, furniture, and more.
And this is just a sliver of Facebook's retail business.
The company's Instagram service is expanding its shopping feature on Instagram Stories.
A big Google Pay update is bringing peer to peer payments to the service.
Google continues to consolidate all of its payment features into a single app, so don't expect any of the wallet based Google products to stick around much longer.
And finally YouTube is getting an incognito mode similar to the one in Google's Chrome browser.
It will essentially allow users to browse YouTube without their activity being tracked and not affect any play list generated from your view time.
And just like Chrome's incognito mode it won't hide your activity from employers or ISPs.
You can stay up to date with the latest by downloading the CNET Tech Today app in the Apple or Google Play Store.
