WhatsApp Video Could Soon Get Picture-In-Picture Support

Tyler Lee July 20, 2017

It wasn’t too long ago that WhatsApp launched the video calling feature for its platform. Given that there are a ton of other messenger apps that support video calling, we guess it’s only a matter of time before they introduced the feature, and now it looks like the feature could be getting a bit of an upgrade.

In a recent tweet by @WABetaInfo, it seems that in the latest beta for WhatsApp for Android, it looks like the video calling feature will be a picture-in-picture (PIP) mode. What this means is that users will be able to shrink the video calling window and move it around the display, thus allowing them to chat with others while maintaining the video call connection.

However according to the tweet, it seems that this particular feature is for Android and for Android 8.0. We’re not sure if by that they mean that it won’t be supported on older Android builds, or if it is only currently being tested on Android 8.0. There was also no mention of iOS, but we expect that if the Android version were to have it, the iOS version should be getting it too.

No word on when this feature will be exiting beta, but if you do rely on WhatsApp’s video calling feature, then this could be a convenient feature to look out for in the future.

Nintendo Switch Online App Is Now Available

Tyler Lee July 19, 2017

A couple of weeks ago, Nintendo announced that they would be launching the Nintendo Switch Online app. This is Nintendo’s upcoming app that will be used for its online services, where users will be able to interact with other gamers, manage their games, and also more importantly use it for voice chat.

The app was scheduled for a launch on the 21st of July, but it seems that someone might have pulled the trigger a bit earlier than expected because the app is now available for download for both iOS and Android devices. That being said, it seems that there’s not much that one can do with the app at the moment since Splatoon 2 is the only game that will fully support it at the moment.

We expect that other games will be supported in the future, but for now if you don’t own Splatoon 2 then we guess you won’t really be using the app all that much yet. Do take note that according to Polygon, it seems that Nintendo is working on stabilizing the app’s servers which means that you might experience some connectivity issues for now, but presumably it will stabilize eventually.

Once it does, users will be able to log into the app with their Nintendo Account that is associated with their Switch console. If you haven’t linked your Account with your Switch console, then perhaps now is a good time to do so.

Samsung Galaxy A5, A7 (2017) To Get Android Nougat Update Soon

Tyler Lee July 14, 2017

Despite Samsung launching both the Samsung Galaxy A5 and A7 earlier this year, both phones were not launched with the latest Android operating system installed, Android 7.0 Nougat. However the good news is that owners of either device probably won’t have to wait much longer for the update to arrive.

According to reports, it seems that testing of the Nougat update on both phones is currently underway, as spotted on the WiFi Alliance website where the phones were listed with Android 7.0 Nougat installed. This suggests that Samsung has gotten the update up and running on the phones, and we guess it’s only a matter of time before they are released to the public.

Unfortunately with Nougat only being released this late in the year, one has to wonder about what this means for the Android 8.0 update which is expected to be released later this year. We’re not sure if either device would qualify for the update since OEMs usually prefer to focus on their flagships, but either way we guess an update to Nougat would do for now.

We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more information and will update you guys accordingly whenever the update has been released.

Latest WhatsApp Update Lets You Share Any File You Want

Tyler Lee July 14, 2017

Several weeks ago, we reported that WhatsApp would soon allow users to share just about any file they want using its messenger service. For those who communicate extensively on WhatsApp for work or school purposes, you’ll be pleased to learn that the latest update for the app is here which brings about the functionality.

The update is available on both iOS and Android and you should probably update to it if you haven’t done so already. For the longest time ever, WhatsApp only supported the sharing of media files such as photos and videos, however a while back the developers added support for the sharing of documents such as PDFs.

However with this update, it seems that users will be able to share just about anything on their phones, as long as it is a file that they can access and send. However and unsurprisingly there are caveats, and that is the file size is capped at 100MB, so don’t expect WhatsApp to suddenly turn into a platform for piracy where users can send each other movies and games.

There is also good news and that is WhatsApp will now stop compressing your photos, meaning that you can send the original to the other person and not worry about the quality being downgraded due to compression. The update should be rolling out to iOS and Android users as we speak, so head on over to the iTunes App Store and Google Play for the download.

This Is What The Google Pixel XL 2 Could Look Like

Tyler Lee July 11, 2017

It goes without saying that Google does plan to launch new smartphones this year, most likely part of its new Pixel lineup of phones now that they have pretty much retired the Nexus lineup. One of those phones is the Google Pixel XL 2, which will be the larger of the two models, and now we might have an idea of what to expect.

In a post by Android Police, they have uploaded a render of what they claim that the Pixel XL 2 could look like. Note that this isn’t a leaked rendering of an official image, but rather this is a render that has been put together based information from sources that Android Police considers reliable. However given that it isn’t exactly official, you should probably take it with a grain of salt anyway.

In terms of design, we are definitely getting a Samsung Galaxy S8 kind of vibe as it appears that the edges of the phone are curved ever so slightly, not to mention the fact that the bezels appear to be quite thin as well. Interestingly enough Android Police is reporting that the Pixel XL 2 will sport a squeezable frame similar to that of the HTC U11, which is interesting when you consider the fact that LG is supposedly the manufacturer of this year’s Pixel phones.

It also appears that based on the renders that Google is sticking with a single camera design versus a dual camera setup. We’re not sure why that is, especially when you consider the trend, but we’ll just have to wait and see. In the meantime what do you guys think of the design?

Latest Android Security Patch Failing To Install On The Pixel

Tyler Lee July 6, 2017

Google has been steadily releasing security updates for its Android platform on a monthly basis, where the company tries to ensure that its platform is as protected as possible from all kinds of malware. That being said, Google’s latest Android security update for July seems to have run into installation problems on the Pixel.

This is according to a bunch of posts on Google’s forums in which users have been voicing their complaints. Note that for some reason this seems to be only affecting the smaller 5-inch Pixel handset, and that the larger Pixel XL does not seem to have any issues when installing the update. Users with the Pixel are simply greeted with the “installation problem” message when trying to update.

As to what the reason might be, it’s really anyone’s guess, although it is a bit strange since the Pixel and Pixel XL are almost identical in terms of hardware save for its display size, so it is strange that only the smaller version is affected. However the good news is that Google’s community manager has acknowledged that the company is looking into the problem, so hopefully we’ll have an answer soon and that the problem will be fixed.

Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire Has Been Released

Tyler Lee June 29, 2017

Back in March, the folks at Square Enix announced a new game in the form of Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire, which is essentially a spin-off of the Final Fantasy XV title. However back in March the game was only soft launched where it was only available in New Zealand and Australia.

The good news is that if this is a title that you have been looking forward to, Square Enix has recently announced that the game is now available to all users around the world on both iOS and Android devices. The game is free to play but there are in-app purchases, which we guess isn’t that surprising in today’s mobile gaming landscape.

According to Square Enix’s description, “Be the hero of your own Final Fantasy XV adventure in the brand new mobile strategy game Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire! Build your own kingdom, discover powerful magic, and dominate the realm alongside all of your friends! Do you have the courage to fulfill your destiny? Journey through vast kingdoms, gather magical resources, and build the strongest Empire in Final Fantasy history!”

While it will be sort of based on Final Fantasy XV, the gameplay itself is completely different. So far reviews on the app stores seem to be pretty positive, so head on over to the iTunes App Store or Google Play if you’d like to get your hands on it.

Adidas ‘All Day’ Fitness App Is Now Available For Download

Tyler Lee June 28, 2017

While Adidas might be primarily seen as a company that makes casual and sports shoes, the company’s interest in technology has been pretty obvious. For example back in the day with the iPod, companies such as Adidas and Nike launched sensors that could be embedded in compatible shoes to help measure things like the wearer’s stride.

This is why it did not come as a surprise to learn that Adidas was also getting into fitness training when they announced the “All Day” fitness app back in March earlier this year. For those wondering about the app, you’ll be interested to learn that the All Day fitness app is finally available for download for both iOS and Android devices right now.

In case you’re hearing about this for the first time, the All Day fitness app will basically serve up various fitness routines for users depending on their preferences. There will also be cooking recipes for those who want to start eating more healthy, and there will also be sections that focus on the mind and relaxation of the user.

Unfortunately for now the Adidas All Day app is only available to those living in the US, so if you are living in the US then head on over to the iTunes App Store or Google Play to get your hands on it.

Duo Is Asking To Integrate With Your Phone’s Call History

Tyler Lee June 28, 2017

Duo is Google’s new video calling app that was originally announced last year alongside Allo, Google’s new messenger platform. Duo had originally launched with only support for video calling, but a couple of months ago Google started to allow audio-only calls to be made using the app.

Now it seems that Google is looking integrate Duo more into Android as according to a report from Android Police, it seems that some users are receiving prompts from Duo asking them if they’d like to merge Duo’s call history with your phone. Basically what this means is that users will be able to see their Duo calls in their phone’s history, alongside regular calls.

However it seems that despite the prompt, the feature isn’t fully functioning yet but it seems like that is the direction that Google appears to be heading. It is possible that maybe with this, Google could soon make Duo capable of making regular phone calls as well, thus doing away with the need for separate apps.

Whether or not that happens remains to be seen, but this consolidation of information isn’t exactly new. iOS users are probably familiar with this by now where their phone’s call history includes regular calls as well as calls made by other apps, such as WhatsApp, FaceTime, Messenger, and so on.
