Soon you’ll be able to order a pizza by tweeting emoji at Domino’s

Pizza Ordering Via Tweet With Emoji

Some companies have elaborate plans for world domination. Domino’s? They just want to give their customers as many ways as humanly possible to order and eat pizza. Preferably Domino’s pizza.

The company’s latest feat of techno-wizardry allows customers to order a pizza using nothing but Twitter and a few choice emoji. “It’s the epitome of convenience,” The company’s CEO Patrick Doyle told USA Today. “We’ve got this down to a five-second exchange.”

Granted, it takes a little bit of setup before it will work, but once you’ve laid the groundwork, ordering a Domino’s pizza will be easier than ever.

To get started, you’ll need to head to the company’s website and sign up for a Domino’s Pizza Profile, then designate an “Easy Order” pizza. This is essentially your “default” pizza. Once this is in place you’ll be able to order “the usual” either by tweeting the hashtag #EasyOrder to the Domino’s Twitter account, or just by tweeting the pizza emoji.

Once the order goes through, you’ll receive a direct message to confirm the order, and soon thereafter the pizza will arrive. If you want to make the process even more modern and streamlined, you can track the pizza’s progress using the Domino’s Pizza Tracker app either online or on your Pebble. We’re sure an Apple Watch app will be available any day now.

If Domino’s has its way, it won’t be all that long before we’re tweeting our pizza order, paying with Bitcoins, watching a live stream of the pizza being made, then waiting as a drone delivers it to your home on the moon.

For the time being, however, if you’ve got the Twitter app open and your finger is hovering over the pizza emoji as you read this, you’ll need to stand down. While ordering using the #EasyOrder hashtag currently works, ordering using emoji won’t work until May 20.

You’ll soon be able to video call your Tinder matches

Soon you won’t have to leave Tinder to go on a virtual date with your matches. Match Group, the dating app’s parent company, said it’s developing a one-on-one video chatting feature. "We know that singles are adjusting their behaviors, and many are shifting to having dates virtually via phone or video," it wrote in its first-quarter earnings release.

Match Group said it’s accelerating development for building "one-to-one video chat capabilities" on many of its platforms. This likely hints that, in addition to Tinder, the feature will arrive on the rest of the startup’s dating apps as well, including Hinge and OkCupid. While it didn’t reveal any specifics just yet, the company did say video calls will be first rolled out for Tinder users sometime in "late Q2."

You’ll soon be able to stream songs in Sony’s 360 Reality Audio format
sony 360 reality audio coming to streaming services fall 2019 1

When Sony gave us a chance to demo its new 360 Reality Audio format at CES 2019 earlier this year, we were very impressed with what we heard. Our only question was, when will we get a chance to experience it in the comfort of our own homes? The answer, according to Sony, is "late fall, 2019" -- in other words, much sooner than we expected. The immersive audio format, which will compete with Dolby's Atmos Music, will be added to Tidal, Amazon Music HD, Deezer, and through an initial release of about 1,000 tracks.

Sony says it's working with music labels including Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group, and Warner Music Group to expand the amount of music that is produced in 360 Reality Audio. The initial 1,000-track library includes current hit artists such as Mark Ronson and Pharrell Williams, but also has classics such as Billy Joel and Bob Dylan. There's also going to be around 100 live concert recordings from Live Nation Clubs & Theaters.
