$3.2 billion class action lawsuit filed against Facebook in UK

Liza Lovdahl Gormsen, senior adviser at the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and competition law specialist, said she was acting on behalf of people in the UK who used Facebook between 2015 and 2019.

The lawsuit, which will be heard by the London Competition Court of Appeal, alleges that Facebook made billions of pounds by imposing unfair conditions that required consumers to provide valuable personal data to access the network.

In response, Facebook said that people used its services because they benefited them, and “they had real control over what information they shared on the Meta platforms and with whom.”

Whatsapp allows you to quietly leave a group

The WhatsApp team is working on a new feature that will allow users to “silently” leave group chats.

Whatsapp allows you to

Currently, when someone leaves a group chat, WhatsApp announces it to all members of the group. Now it is impossible to quietly leave the group so that all members do not know about it. But soon this may change.

When a group member opts out, a dialog box appears that says “Only you and the group admins will be notified that you have left the group.”

Apple Allows Apps to Raise Subscription Prices Without Users Permission

Apple has changed its policy for apps and services in the App Store that offer a paid subscription with auto-renewal.

Apple Allows Apps to Raise Subscription Prices Without Users' Permission

Until now, when a developer increased the price of an auto-renewing subscription, users had to confirm that they agreed to continue paying for the subscription at the new price. Otherwise, the subscription was automatically cancelled. Now, with the update, the increased cost of the subscription will be charged even without the consent of the user.

Of course, Apple has provided some restrictions to avoid abuse. For example, developers are still required to notify users of a change in the cost of a subscription, and re-charging the new cost is not possible without the consent expressed by the user.

In addition, price increases cannot occur more than once a year, and the maximum price increase is $5 for regular subscriptions or $50 for annual subscriptions. Users will also be able to easily cancel their subscription if they wish.

Recently, Google updated the note for the May update of Google Play, adding to it some additional innovations that were not previously mentioned.

Most notable among these declassified innovations was the Photo Picker feature. This feature, first introduced in Android 13, aims to restrict apps from accessing media files on the device. Instead of giving access to all the media on the device at once, Photo Picker gives apps access to only selected media.

Google’s official documentation for Photo Picker mentions that the feature will arrive on devices running Android 12 and Android 11 via a Google Play system update.

Another new feature coming with the Google Play May update is support for installing and using streaming apps on devices running Android Automative. In addition, the update also adds the ability for parents to install the launcher on devices registered with Family Link.
