A new feature called Instant Android Apps will let users run applications immediately, without the need to first be installed locally. The idea is that developers will be able to reach out easier and quicker and get a bigger audience. Developers do not have to rewrite their applications, but they need to be updated to take advantage of Android Instant Apps, which can take less than a day according to Google. IO16 pic.twitter.com/QQbJ6xlJCc - Google @google May 18, 2016 In the beginning, only a few developers have access to the feature, but it will get a broader rollout later this year. We suppose that the function will go off and how systemtillåtelser will be handled for Instant Apps is not clear. We call it Instant Android Apps, and it evolves Android apps to be able to run instantly, without requiring the installation.
If I'm already at my computer, I'll do a quick Google search to see if I can find some info on the caller before they go to voicemail.WhoApp is a new app that specializes in finding out who is calling you.The call will be sent to WhoApp, who will dial back the number and show you information on who the caller is.If the caller is some form of telemarketer, they'll show a large warning shield, letting you know that you probably don't want to answer it.And since they appear to call the person back, that does make me think that there will be some issues, depending on the caller.There's no word on whether or not the company plans to bring it to Android devices.
Google engineering director Erik Kay talks about the new Allo messaging app and Duo video calling app during Google I/OGoogle has revealed its latest project to the world - an app which can effectively write your text messages for you.Allo learns over time from your style of writing and emoji use, and will present replies accordingly.Its Smart Reply feature is capable of analysing pictures sent to you - for example, a dog or a baby - and generating suggestions such as "Aww, cute dog!"will return results without the need to clarify who 'he' is.Clever feature Whisper Shout is an amusing way to enlarge or downscale your text in order to convey your emotions more clearly, and you can write and doodle on photos using Ink - similar to the way you can draw over Snapchat photos.Alongside Allo, Google launched new video messaging app Duo, which provides a live video preview of the caller in order to make the call feel less intrusive.
Closing the gap between what Apple's iPad offers for content-creators looking to replace their laptop with a tablet, Android N's ability to show two apps on-screen simultaneously will bring a new degree of usability for hybrids like Google's own Pixel C. Meanwhile, there'll be changes to how notifications are managed in Android N too.On Android N tablets, there'll be the ability to float a second window - picture-in-picture style - so that you can carry on watching a video, holding a video call, or monitoring Twitter while simultaneously doing something else on your slate.Unlike Apple's iOS, however, multi-window won't be limited to tablets, and will instead be supported on phones.You'll be able to split the screen in two - the line runs across the center of the screen when you're holding it in portrait orientation - and then pick from other apps to have displayed at the same time.For notifications, meanwhile, there'll be more granular control over what shows up in your status bar.Tablets running Android have, though often equipped with keyboard, struggled when it comes to multitasking in comparison.
The baby's mother was diagnosed with the Zika virus during pregnancyThe Zika virus, which has mainly affected areas of central and South America, may spread to Europe this summer, the World Health Organisation WHO has warned."We call particularly on countries at higher risk to strengthen their national capacities and prioritise the activities that will prevent a large Zika outbreak."The assessment took into consideration two factors: the likelihood of the virus spreading and the "existing national capacity to prevent or contain local transmission".Countries and areas at highest risk included Russia, Georgia and the Portuguese island of Madeira.WHO recommended a number of preventative measures to countries at high risk, including strengthening activities to prevent the spread of mosquitos, equipping health professionals to detect transmission of Zika and to ensure that communities "reduce mosquito breeding sites"."We stand ready to support European countries on the ground in case of Zika outbreaks," said Nedret Emiroglu, Director of the Communicable Diseases and Health Security Division, WHO Regional Office for Europe.
It matches the earlier leaked photos see below top to bottom aside from colour scheme, which is... a bit odd.Blass identifies it as gold but opts to call it "desert camo" instead, and we'd say it's more beige than we usually like in a gadget.Still no word on a release date or pricing for the likely AT exclusive in the States.If these photos leaked out of Vietnam are any indication, Samsung wants the Galaxy S7 Active to look more comfortable in a battlefield than a fashion show - unlike the standard Galaxy S7.Water and dust resistance were collectively one of the big enhancements for the Galaxy S7 this year, and that that same IP68 rating is reportedly maintained on the Active model, unsurprisingly.Leaks suggest the Galaxy S7 Active will have much the same specs as the Galaxy S7 in the States, including the Snapdragon 820 processor and 4GB RAM, plus the Quad HD display.
Microsoft is finally making it easier to reinstall Windows 7 from scratch with a new Service Pack SP that the company refuses to call a service pack.Windows 7 may not be available to most of us anymore, but there are many reasons to reinstall the operating system on existing Windows 7 PCs, and Microsoft never released a Service Pack after Windows 7 Service Pack 1's release in early 2011.Microsoft recently announced the availability of the Windows 7 SP1 convenience roll-up.In other words, if you don t know about the convenience roll-up you re still in for a world of tedious updates.Monthly rollups for everyoneAdding more roll-up fun for the future, Microsoft plans to create monthly roll-ups of non-security fixes for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 from now on.Microsoft plans to support other browsers with non-ActiveX functionality later this summer.
Perhaps the reason why is its period World War 1 setting, which has caused the game to stand out in a crowd of future-set shooters like Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Titanfall 2.However, it turns out the historical setting for the upcoming title was actually initially rejected by an EA executive."If you look at what other partners in our industry are doing, they're going into sci-fi; we've had a lot of success in the modern military space.The technical revolution or evolution during those four years is probably unmatched in the history of mankind."I think that what the internet is telling us with 31 million views and the most seen trailer of the history of EA is that the World War I theme is resonating with players out there.According to a YouTube playlist that monitors the most disliked videos on YouTube, the trailer is currently sitting at No 2 with almost 2.4 million dislikes, behind Justin Bieber's Baby.

Report authors call on gov.UK, business to up their spendLeaving the EU could mean UK universities lose a whopping £1bn research funding, according to report released by Digital Science today.Their data showed the UK was the fifth-largest producer of science and technical articles behind USA, China, Japan and Germany, despite receiving just 1.63 per cent from public and private sectors in research.Figures from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development reveal that investment from UK companies contribute only 1.06 per cent of GDP toward research and development.This is below the average of many European countries and is almost 80 per cent lower than the R investment made by German businesses.Should the UK vote to leave next month, the report stresses that significant political efforts will need to be made to plug the funding gap and avoid long-term damage to the research and education sector .Ridley said that some of the biggest scientific organisations including The European Space Agency, The European Molecular Biology Organisation and CERN, were not EU-membership exclusive and was unfair if the EU parliament held the power to decide how money was spent.
GIFMastering the game of chess is infinitely complicated, but getting started just got easier with a chess board that s perfectly set up and ready to go as soon as you open the box.Before newcomers can even begin to start learning how the various chess pieces move around the board, they have to know what squares the pawns, bishops, rooks, knights, kings, and queens all call home.GIFAs a game of chess plays out, captured pieces are returned to their designated and labeled slots in the game s box.The bottom of each piece, and the double-sided chess board, are all magnetic.The game s design also helps ensure that every piece is accounted for at the end of a game, and that none of them go missing when it s being haphazardly stuffed into your game shelf.It s not indestructible, but should certainly survive being swept off the table in a rage every time your partner puts you in check.

Initially, a small percentage of Bay Area drivers will be included in the trial, with the trial eventually spreading throughout the San Francisco area and lasting two months.Sitting in the Uber app s Help section, the calling function is represented by a phone icon.Currently, the Uber app offers self-service options, such as frequently asked questions, though there is a way to contact representatives.Since then I have been emailing support to get my account active again and every time I get a canned reply from different reps, Uber driver Garen Karanyan told The Verge.I would email Adrian and will get a reply from Eugene saying that he stepped in for Adrian.The ride-sharing service agreed to settlements, scheduled for review on June 2, totaling $100 million, though drivers will still be considered contractors.
Doom is a brilliant homage to a classic, but falls short of achieving something new.Between the guns and the mods, which can be switched on the fly, there s enough variation to ensure that shooting things never stops being fun.Every encounter will push you past your comfort zone for just long enough that you breath a heavy sigh of relief when you ve cleared it.Coming at a battle from the wrong angle can feel like slamming your head against wall.As we discussed in our hands-on with April s multiplayer beta, the gameplay is more frantic than your standard Call of Duty-inspired FPS.While team deathmatch rounds tend to drag on in Doom — many of the levels are a little too large for 6-on-6 — these modes offer a single point of focus, and encourage players to think of new, strategic ways, that keep the gameplay fresh, without slowing things down.
Google today launched a new video calling app called Duo, as a sort of companion to the new Allo messaging app that was also introduced today at the Google I/O developer conference in Mountain View, California.Duo calls are end-to-end encrypted, said Google engineering manager Eric Kay.But the feature that makes Duo stand out most from other mobile-friendly video calling services — including Skype, Facebook Messenger, and Facebook s WhatsApp, not to mention Google s own Hangouts — is something called Knock Knock.It s a live video stream of the caller before you ve even picked up, Kay said.You not only see who s calling, but what they re up to and why they re calling.A smile, a beach, and a newborn baby can all draw you into the moment, making calls feel spontaneous and natural, and once you pick up Duo it puts you right into the call.Like Hangouts, Duo video calls run on top of WebRTC.Duo relies on a fairly new Google protocol called QUIC for quick UDP Internet connections , and it can perform a seamless handoff of calls between Wi-Fi and cellular connections, Kay said.One thing Duo doesn t have is support for calls between more than two phone lines.The app will become available on Android and iOS this summer, Kay said.
Nokia's back, baby!On Wednesday, Microsoft announced plans to sell the Nokia brand for old-fashioned featurephones for a cool $350 million to the Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer Foxconn, best known as the manufacturer of the iPhone.Back in 2014, Microsoft officially ditched the Nokia brand for its smartphones, focusing on its Lumia and Windows Phone products.As a result, the once independent Finnish company's name is now most commonly associated with Snake II, teenagers' first phones circa 2002, and drug dealers.But while Nokia and featurephones have faded from view in the West, they remain a huge market globally.And at the iPod's all-time high, in 2008, 58.3 million units were sold — one-tenth the size of the dumbphone industry in 2015.The featurephone market is even an order of magnitude larger than the global auto market, which shipped 72.4 million vehicles in 2015, according to data compiled by Statista.Amid Apple CEO Tim Cook's visit to India this week, people are raving about the potential the region holds for the smartphone industry's growth.There are a "billion phone sales at stake," Bloomberg wrote.And while there is certainly potential there, the established featurephone market isn't going anywhere anytime soon.Cook acknowledged as much on the California-based company's quarterly earnings call last month, telling analysts: "The smartphones that are working there are low end, primarily because of the network and the economics, so the market potential has not been as great there."So while you might not use a Nokia dumbphone anymore, a hell of a lot of people still do.SEE ALSO: Apple is on a charm offensive in ChinaNOW WATCH: Your smartphone could be causing your face to break outLoading video...
