Cross-posted from the YouTube Artist Blog
At YouTube, we understand the importance of helping artists find ways to build deeper connections with their fans — the ones who not only watch and listen to videos, but are also willing to pay to see live performances. And, with live concerts becoming a bigger driver of revenue for artists, we want to help artists reach those fans, keep them updated about upcoming shows, and sell more tickets.
We’ve been experimenting with ways we can offer a ticketing experience to fans and we’re excited to announce our first ticketing partnership with Ticketmaster. Starting today, we will begin featuring hundreds of artist’s upcoming U.S. tour dates on their YouTube videos. Fans enjoying an artist’s official music video on YouTube can now learn about upcoming concert listings and with a simple click, go to Ticketmaster to purchase tickets.
YouTube’s massive fan base paired with Ticketmaster’s global roster of concerts and security of verified tickets means we can easily connect a fan’s discovery of music on YouTube to their ability to purchase concert tickets.
We’re just getting started. We’ll be rolling out this feature to all artists who have Ticketmaster shows in North America with plans to expand globally. And, as part of our ongoing commitment to support artists, we’ll continue to find additional ways to make meaningful fan and artist connections.

In June, we announced four steps we’re taking to combat terrorist content on YouTube:
We shared our progress across these steps in August and wanted to update you again on where things are today.
Better detection and faster removal
We’ve always used a mix of human flagging and human review together with technology to address controversial content on YouTube. In June, we introduced machine learning to flag violent extremism content and escalate it for human review. We continue to get faster here:
Inevitably, both humans and machines make mistakes, and as we have increased the volume of videos for review by our teams, we have made some errors. We know we can get better and we are committed to making sure our teams are taking action on the right content. We are working on ways to educate those who share video meant to document or expose violence on how to add necessary context.
Outside experts are essential to advising us on our policies and flagging content for additional inputs that better train our systems. Our partner NGOs bring expert knowledge of complex issues like hate speech, radicalization, and terrorism.
We have added 35 NGOs to our Trusted Flagger program, which is 70 percent of the way towards our goal. These new partner NGOs represent 20 different countries and include NGOs like the International Center for the Study of Radicalization at King’s College London and The Wahid Institute in Indonesia, which is dedicated to promoting religious freedom and tolerance.
We started applying tougher treatment to videos that aren’t illegal and don’t violate our Guidelines, but contain controversial religious or supremacist content. These videos remain on YouTube, but they are behind a warning interstitial, aren’t recommended, monetized, and don’t have key features including comments, suggested videos, and likes. This is working as intended and helping us strike a balance between upholding free expression, by providing a historical record of content in the public interest, while also keeping these videos from being widely spread or recommended to others.
Amplify voices speaking out against hate and extremism
We continue to support programs that counter extremist messages. We are researching expansion for Jigsaw’s Redirect Method to apply this model to new languages and search terms. We’re heavily investing in our YouTube Creators for Change program to support Creators who are using YouTube to tackle social issues and promote awareness, tolerance and empathy. Every month these Creators release exciting and engaging new videos and campaigns to counter hate and social divisiveness:
In addition to this work supporting voices to counter hate and extremism, last month Google.org announced a $ 5 million innovation fund to counter hate and extremism. This funding will support technology-driven solutions, as well as grassroots efforts like community youth projects that help build communities and promote resistance to radicalization.
Terrorist and violent extremist material should not be spread online. We will continue to heavily invest to fight the spread of this content, provide updates to governments, and collaborate with other companies through the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism. There remains more to do so we look forward to continuing to share our progress with you.

A little over a month ago, we told you about the four new steps we’re taking to combat terrorist content on YouTube: better detection and faster removal driven by machine learning, more experts to alert us to content that needs review, tougher standards for videos that are controversial but do not violate our policies, and more work in the counter-terrorism space.
We wanted to give you an update on these commitments:
Better detection and faster removal driven by machine learning: We’ve always used a mix of technology and human review to address the ever-changing challenges around controversial content on YouTube. We recently began developing and implementing cutting-edge machine learning technology designed to help us identify and remove violent extremism and terrorism-related content in a scalable way. We have started rolling out these tools and we are already seeing some positive progress:
We are encouraged by these improvements, and will continue to develop our technology in order to make even more progress. We are also hiring more people to help review and enforce our policies, and will continue to invest in technical resources to keep pace with these issues and address them responsibly.
More experts: Of course, our systems are only as good as the the data they’re based on. Over the past weeks, we have begun working with more than 15 additional expert NGOs and institutions through our Trusted Flagger program, including the Anti-Defamation League, the No Hate Speech Movement, and the Institute for Strategic Dialogue. These organizations bring expert knowledge of complex issues like hate speech, radicalization, and terrorism that will help us better identify content that is being used to radicalize and recruit extremists. We will also regularly consult these experts as we update our policies to reflect new trends. And we’ll continue to add more organizations to our network of advisors over time.
Tougher standards: We’ll soon be applying tougher treatment to videos that aren’t illegal but have been flagged by users as potential violations of our policies on hate speech and violent extremism. If we find that these videos don’t violate our policies but contain controversial religious or supremacist content, they will be placed in a limited state. The videos will remain on YouTube behind an interstitial, won’t be recommended, won’t be monetized, and won’t have key features including comments, suggested videos, and likes. We’ll begin to roll this new treatment out to videos on desktop versions of YouTube in the coming weeks, and will bring it to mobile experiences soon thereafter. These new approaches entail significant new internal tools and processes, and will take time to fully implement.
Early intervention and expanding counter-extremism work: We’ve started rolling out features from Jigsaw’s Redirect Method to YouTube. When people search for sensitive keywords on YouTube, they will be redirected towards a playlist of curated YouTube videos that directly confront and debunk violent extremist messages. We also continue to amplify YouTube voices speaking out against hate and radicalization through our YouTube Creators for Change program. Just last week, the U.K. chapter of Creators for Change, Internet Citizens, hosted a two-day workshop for 13-18 year-olds to help them find a positive sense of belonging online and learn skills on how to participate safely and responsibly on the internet. We also pledged to expand the program’s reach to 20,000 more teens across the U.K.
And over the weekend, we hosted our latest Creators for Change workshop in Bandung, Indonesia, where creators teamed up with Indonesia’s Maarif Institute to teach young people about the importance of diversity, pluralism, and tolerance.
Altogether, we have taken significant steps over the last month in our fight against online terrorism. But this is not the end. We know there is always more work to be done. With the help of new machine learning technology, deep partnerships, ongoing collaborations with other companies through the Global Internet Forum, and our vigilant community we are confident we can continue to make progress against this ever-changing threat. We look forward to sharing more with you in the months ahead.

According to a new post on Twitter from Des Smith, a product manager with T-Mobile, the carrier will be rolling out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to the LG V10 starting next week. This comes a little more than two months after T-Mobile started the upgrade process to Marshmallow for last year’s flagship, the LG G4. Since then, LG also released their newest flagship device, the LG G5.
No details were shared about what the upgrade may include outside of the normal Marshmallow features and updates like Doze, Now On Tap, and the changes to app permissions. Since the LG UI on the LG V10 was essentially the same as what came on the LG G4, this upgrade should be similar. The one thing that is different is the second screen that LG makes available on the LG V10, but owners who received the Marshmallow update on their LG V10 with other carriers have not noted any issues.

Earlier this month, BlackBerry pushed their March update containing all the latest security patches to the Priv smartphone. According to sources, some carrier units have begun receiving the update.
While unlocked BlackBerry Priv units received the update a few weeks ago, some carrier variants are just beginning to receive it now. Some users on AT&T and T-Mobile have reported the arrival of the update on their Priv smartphone. Unfortunately, both carriers are yet to speak out about what has been fixed with the update, but one can assume that most of which is posted on BlackBerry’s site will be included. This will be liked below the article.
The update contains no major release, therefore it shouldn’t take up too much space. However, we still recommend charging your device and connected to a nearby Wi-Fi network before beginning the installation process. BlackBerry has taken updates with all seriousness since they began their transition to the Android ecosystem, let’s just hope it continues.

Earlier today, Instagram started pushing out a small update to users of its Android app. It includes just two small cosmetic changes that the average probably won’t even notice.
If nothing jumped out from the screenshot above, I’ll just tell you what Instagram changed:
In 2016, Instagram has been pretty active pushing out little updates like today’s in addition to implementing new features. Multi-account support came in February and Instagram started showing video views days shortly after. Then Instagram brought in two-factor authentication to enhance security for users worldwide.
Instagram actually started the year by hiring Twitter’s Kevin Weil as its Head of Product. Since then, the Facebook-owned service began cracking down on users who promote other social media profiles on Instagram.

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei has been making good on its promise to distribute Google’s monthly security updates for its flagship smartphones, and today has started rolling out February’s patches for the Mate 8. This upgrade’s objective is to fix a multitude of “critical bugs” present in the open-source operating system, which, if not dealt with, could have permitted devices to be remotely accessed by a simple text message. It also addresses users concerns regarding privilege escalation as it plasters over any previous holes exposing the resources that had the facility to brick a handset if tampered with.
As usual, the update is being distributed in stages. All unlocked Mate 8 units should receive the update within the next few days, whilst carrier-branded variants are expected to get it sometime next week — so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for that push notification prompting you to download and install the update. It’s worth noting, however, as this is a relatively large piece of firmware, you’ll probably want to connect to a Wi-Fi network prior to pulling it from the servers in order to ensure you don’t run over your data allotment and rack up a nasty bill with your service provider.

Google is rolling out an update to the Calendar app on both Android and iOS devices that make the app just a little bit smarter than it has been. That is a good thing for users as they can access new holidays, new languages and adding events has a new workflow available to make it a little bit quicker.
The big change with the update is a new feature called “smart suggestions” that is supposed to help make it easier and quicker to add an event. When a user starts typing the title for a new event they are adding, Google will suggest possible matches in a list that appears below the data entry field. Users can click on one of those to finish populating the title or just keep typing if it is something new.
The enhancements do not stop with the title though. If users keep typing “at…” or pick it from the list that appears, they can quickly add a location. Google will again provide options to selection a location from a list based on what is being typed. Users can continue with the “with…” option to add people – though this does not send an invite – and they can type “on…” to pick a date, time and duration. The last option is only available for English language users. The other features are available in several languages.
Along with the enhancements to the suggestions routine, Google added over 30 languages – I count 41 in the list although some are variations of the same language – that support the smart suggestions feature and the Calendar app in general. Google also added 54 new country-specific holiday calendars that can be activated by users by going to Settings -> Holidays. This brings the total number of country-specific holiday calendars to 143. Those join four religious holidays calendars covering Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Orthodox holidays.
Finally, Google also made it a bit easier to delete calendar entries by tapping on the overflow button and selecting the Delete option without having to do a full edit job.
You can get the Google Calendar app from the Play Store using the link below.

Vodafone UK has started pushing out a rather unexpected update to all its carrier-branded models of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge located in the United Kingdom. This upgrade carries support for the operator’s fairly new Wi-Fi calling service, which authorizes users to place calls via the Internet when they have no cellular signal without incurring any extra charges.
Unfortunately, you will need to be a subscriber of either a Pay Monthly Red, Red Value, Red+ or Business Premier plan to use the Wi-Fi calling platform. You’ll also need to ensure that your device was bought directly from Vodafone because if you purchased it from a third-party company, it won’t bundle the correct drivers for the feature to work. Other than these two provisos, using the service couldn’t be easier. Simply install the upgrade, then text the word “CALLING” to 97888 to enable it.
