New Chrome extension enables Microsoft’s Windows Timeline

Tuesday, February 19th, 2019

Microsoft recently made some changes to the "Task view" in Windows 10. As of the Spring 2018 update, it includes Windows Timeline. As the name implies, it shows a timeline of recent activities on your computer and connected Microsoft services. Now, you can add Chrome tabs to the list thanks to Redmond's new Web Activities extension. Just install this, and your Chrome tabs will sync to Windows Timeline and other products like Microsoft Launcher for Android.

[Update: Now on MacOS] Native dark mode in Google Chrome for Windows 10 now available in Canary channel

Friday, February 8th, 2019

The overwhelming demand for dark modes in apps is beginning to see serious results now, to the point where 2019 could be the year we see system-wide dark modes across all the major platforms. Windows 10 has already implemented this, but it relies on app developers to do their part, which Google is now doing for the Chrome browser.

[Update: Now in stable version too] SwiftKey Beta automatic Incognito mode is here to save you from awkward predictions

Monday, February 4th, 2019

Picture this: you have national security level web browsing to do, and fire up Incognito mode. However, unless you also remember to toggle your keyboard over to Incognito, it's still studying what you type to add words to its dictionary.

Microsoft planning to take mobile gaming market with cross-platform Xbox Live integration

Monday, February 4th, 2019

 

GDC 2019 is next month, and in preparation for the event, the official schedule has been made available on the GDC Conference website. Notably, one of the sessions on the calendar is supposed to cover a first look at a new SDK from Microsoft that will allow mobile game developers to integrate the Xbox Live service into their titles.

The Xbox Live service is already available in a few Android games such as Minecraft, but it's limited to titles from Microsoft Studios, so there aren't that many games on the Play Store that actually include the feature.

Microsoft Edge now warning users about fake news (since y’all were too naive to spot it yourselves)

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019

Microsoft is planning big changes to its Edge browser, but the Chromium redesign is still off in the future. For now, the Android and iOS versions of Edge have gotten an update that adds a feature called "NewsGuard." It's off by default, but when enabled it will tell you whether or not a news website is trustworthy. Naturally, some sites are not happy with the results.

NewsGuard is not part of Microsoft—it's a startup based in New York that aims to fight misinformation.

SwiftKey Beta automatic Incognito mode is here to save you from awkward predictions

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019

Picture this: you have national security level web browsing to do, and fire up Incognito mode. However, unless you also remember to toggle your keyboard over to Incognito, it's still studying what you type to add words to its dictionary. If you can already see a potentially embarrassing situation brewing, worry no more, as the newest SwiftKey Beta picks up the ability to automatically switch itself to Incognito mode.

Auto-switching works in most major web browsers, with the exception of UC Browser 

While keyboards like Gboard have been auto-switching to Incognito mode for a while, it's good to see the feature being tested on other popular keyboards too — SwiftKey has over 100M downloads, and SwiftKey Beta has over a million. It's been three years since Microsoft acquired SwiftKey and, unlike Sunrise and Wunderlist, SwiftKey continues to be actively developed, even making its way to Windows 10.

Latest SwiftKey update lets you remove the Bing search button [APK Download]

Friday, January 18th, 2019

Much like Gboard and its Google Search integration, Microsoft-owned SwiftKey added Bing as a search feature in its last big release, which we're sure wasn't a popular addition. Thankfully, a new update is now available that changes Bing search to a small button in the toolbar and allows you to remove it if you don't want it.

As well as not forcing Bing on users quite so blatantly, there are also some smaller improvements and bug fixes.

For companies looking to deploy a large number of phones, Google also now has a set of recommended Enterprise Mobility Management providers.
