Microsoft adds AI-powered visual search to Bing app

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

Odds are you have Google Lens in your phone as part of Assistant. If you're not satisfied with Lens, there's an alternative from Microsoft. The Bing app has been updated with AI-powered visual search. So, it's Lens but from Microsoft.

Like Assistant, Microsoft's visual search feature uses a neural network trained with many bytes of sample images. At the end of the training process, the system can look at new images and (sometimes) figure out what they are.

Google has been slow to add new features to Android Wear Wear OS, but now it's taking features away? Users report that the Google Feed has vanished from their watches. So, if you want to glance at your suggested content, it's time to pull the phone out of your pocket.

The Google Feed has changed substantially since it dropped the Google Now brand. Google focuses more on suggesting links than the predictive cards from the Google Now days.

Tasker v5.2 is João Dias’ first public release, adds Custom Setting, runtime permissions, and much more

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

A few months ago, we heard that Tasker was changing hands. João Dias, known for his impressive work on AutoApps and Join, took over the app and has since spent the last few months learning the ins and outs of his new property. Today marks his first public release, v5.2, and it brings quite a few additions and quality-of-life improvements for Tasker users. 

Here's what's new:

  • Custom Setting: A way to change many, many Android system settings with one simple action
  • Runtime permissions: Tasker now asks for permissions when it needs them instead of you having to accept them all at install time
  • Location mode: You can toggle your GPS sensor and change other location related settings
  • Immersive Mode: Hide the status bar, the navigation bar or both; great if you want to hide them at certain times or places for example
  • Authentication dialog: You can protect your sensitive tasks with a system authentication dialog
  • New actions: Now when an action is added or updated, you’ll see a little indicator in Tasker so that you know what new stuff there is
  • Root detection is fixed
  • Wifi Tether action and %TETHER variable are fixed
  • Torch action now available Android Marshmallow or above
  • Take Call action now available for Android Oreo or above
  • Sound Mode: toggle between ringer, vibrate or no-sound in devices that support it
  • Power Mode can now be toggled
  • Icon Color in notify actions is now respected

That's quite a list of new things and fixes. João's highlight is the Custom Setting, which you can see in action in the video below.

Google’s At A Glance widget shows relevant transit departure times

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

Ever since it debuted with the Pixel's launcher, the At A Glance widget has been slowly adding more features. Now, it covers your calendar events, flights, and traffic information, and it works on non-Pixel devices too. One small change you may have noticed recently is that the traffic time comes with a bit of added info if you take public transportation: transit departure times.

Over the past few days, both of our tipsters have started seeing their metro and bus departure times in the widget.

G Suite users can’t review or rate Play Store content anymore

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

G Suite users have long put up with bizarre and annoying account restrictions, but the last several weeks have brought new frustrations. First, it was the sudden inability to redeem promo codes, and now G Suite accounts can't even review or rate apps, movies, and other content in the Play Store.

For those affected, the option to rate content is just missing on the web and in the Play Store Android client.

Facebook Messenger Kids getting new features focused on being nice, coming to Canada and Peru

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

Facebook's Messenger Kids came to Android early this year. The app is meant to provide a safer experience for children 13 and younger, having parents more involved in their online communications than they would otherwise be. If you were ever a child, though, you may remember than kids can be pretty mean. Evidently aware of this, Facebook has announced that Messenger Kids will be getting a number of features that encourage nice behavior.

Google Chrome will automatically download news articles for offline reading

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

There has been a big push to improve internet access and make it easier to view online content in NBU markets (Next Billion Users) in recent years. Google's latest Chrome feature also has this in mind, as it will download relevant news articles automatically while connected to WiFi so the user can view them later when only a less reliable data connection or none at all is available.

Chrome's data saver has been great for users in developing countries, and this new addition will help to save further precious bytes assuming the content it decides to download is actually relevant.
