  Banned Chinese Xiaomi apps will not come pre-installed anymore

Banned Chinese Xiaomi apps will not come pre-installed anymore: Here's what happens to existing phones

The banned Xiaomi applications include Mi Browser, Mi Browser Pro, Mi Community and Mi Video Call. The set of applications have been banned on both Android and iOS. These applications usually come pre-installed on MIUI that powers most Mi, Redmi and Poco smartphones.

Following the ban, the company has finally come forward to give us a clear picture of what will happen to these pre-installed apps now. A recent official statement from Xiaomi reads, “We want to clarify that none of the apps blocked by the Indian Government are available for access on any Xiaomi phones launched in India. Further, we are developing a new version of MIUI that will be built without pre-installation of any of the blocked apps.”

The Koo app has been developed by Aprameya Radhakrishna and Mayank Bidawatka back in March. It is mainly a platform for users to express their views and opinions, much like it is done on Twitter. The best part is that the app is available in various Indian languages such as Hindi & Kannada, with it launching in other languages: Telugu, Kannada, Bengali, Tamil, Malayalam, Gujarati, Marathi, Punjabi, Oriya and Assamese. This allows users to express themselves in the language they prefer.

The Koo app is available for both Android and iOS users. It can be downloaded via the Google Play Store and the App Store. Currently, it has more than 500,000 downloads on the Google Play Store.

  Files by Google now has a Safe Folder for your private files
Posted by: nairrk - 08-05-2020, 10:09 AM - Forum: Technology & Web Services - No Replies

Several phone manufacturers ship their phones with a bunch of their own apps, one of which is a File Manager app. If you don’t like it, you can grab one from the scores available on the Play Store. You can also grab Google’s own Files by Google which was originally made for Android Go devices but is now available for all. If you already have it, then it will interest you to know that the app is getting a new feature called Safe Folder.

Safe Folder as the name says is a place for users to keep their private files. It is similar to the Lockbox available on OnePlus’s File manager app.

To set it up, you will be asked to create a PIN. If you forget the four-digit PIN, you can’t recover the files there. If you also lose or change your device, you also can’t get access or transfer the files as they are not backed up to the cloud.

The new feature is available on version 1.0.323 of the app according to Android Police and you will find it under Collections. The tech website also says clearing app data or uninstalling the app also means you lose all the files in the folder.

  WhatsApp adds ability to cross-check forwarded messages via Google
Posted by: nairrk - 08-04-2020, 06:40 PM - Forum: Technology & Web Services - No Replies

WhatsApp Messenger has rolled out a new feature to its popular messaging application. The new update brings the ability to check forwarded messages on the platform.

The company has revealed that it is testing a new feature known as the Search the Web. The feature will allow users to check for the forwarded messages they get on their WhatsApp. One can tap on the magnifying glass button in the chat and it will provide a simple way to search messages that have been forwarded many times. “The feature may help people find news results or other sources of information about the content they have received,” the company said in a statement.

Additionally, the feature works by allowing users to upload the message via their browser without WhatsApp ever seeing the message itself. The company has revealed that the Search the Web feature is being rolled out starting today in Brazil, Italy, Ireland, Mexico, Spain, UK, and the US for those on the latest versions of WhatsApp for Android, iOS and WhatsApp Web.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp is reportedly working to introduce a new feature through which users can log in into multiple devices using the same account. Now, as per a report, the upcoming feature will be known as Linked Devices.

WABetainfo has uncovered some new features of WhatsApp in the latest v2.20.196.8 beta version for Android. To start with the Linked Devices, users will be able to link multiple devices with the same account. The feature will be available by clicking the three dots. The report highlights that when the action is enabled, the Linked Devices screen will appear and one can easily link a new device with much trouble. There will be a dedicated section through which users can add a new device, similar to what we have seen with current desktop clients.

  Microsoft Edge now the second most popular web browser, says study
Posted by: nairrk - 08-04-2020, 06:29 PM - Forum: Technology & Web Services - No Replies

[Image: Microsoft-Edge-New.jpg]

Microsoft Edge is the second most popular desktop browser in the world yet again. According to NetMarketShare, it has more users than Mozilla Firefox. This has earned Edge the reputation of being the second most popular desktop browser for the month of July. And like before, Google Chrome remains the most popular browser in the world with an unassailable lead. Also Read - Google is bringing Windows apps to Chromebook

This trend has become regular now, as the desktop version of Microsoft Edge had surpassed Mozilla Firefox in terms of market share for the first time in April this year. Back then, NetMarketShare noted that Mozilla Firefox had a market share of 7.19 per cent, while Microsoft Edge reported 7.59 per cent share.

And now, the report says Edge has gained further with a share of 8.09 per cent. While Firefox share stands at 7.39 per cent till July 2020. Also Read - Firefox Private Relay add-on will help users generate E-mail aliases for online forms

The rise in popularity of Edge has ensured the gap has widened over Mozilla Firefox since April this year. The lead may still not be enough and Firefox could bounce back. However, it does show the confidence that consumers have started showing in Edge. Since Microsoft released a new version of Edge based on Chromium engine, the browser has been growing in popularity. In fact, the market share is so tiny that Microsoft would need to push it to the forefront to make it popular.

A lot of these users would be those who switched from Chrome to Edge. Since Edge is now Chromium-based, it gains the advantage of using the extensions available on rival platforms. While it matches Chrome’s performance, the browser also delivers improved battery life.

Microsoft Edge gets new features regularly
The company has been actively offering a new set of features for Edge. According to reports, the new Edge will be getting a new set of PDF features very soon. Microsoft has added the new highlight mode on the browser, which lets you select text or paragraph from a PDF document. Users can access the mode without selecting anything. In addition to this, it is also going to let you add text to existing PDF files, using the text note feature. This will be added alongside existing features like dark mode, forms, and others.
