FiOS Upgrades Widgets
Verizon this week said that its recently introduced widgets for FiOS subscribers are being expanded. The service has added both an on-screen keyboard and the ability to update status messages for Facebook and Twitter, Verizon said.
Both widgets are free for FiOS subscribers.
"FiOS TV subscribers are enthusiastically embracing our new social TV experiences and are asking for more," Shawn Strickland, Verizon Telecom's vice president, marketing, said as part of the announcement. "We're very quickly adding new features so that users can create and send more personalized information, in addition to viewing content. FiOS TV subscribers can count on us to continually expand their enjoyment of social networking on TV with innovative, interactive applications that cable can't deliver."
