WhatsApp is developing additional features for users that will soon allow them to manage the size of their backup.
This will help users in choosing the data they need, they can save on the use of mobile data and the storage of unwanted information. WhatsApp may be gearing up for a limited storage plan of 2GB for each Google Drive user, however Google hasn’t confirmed anything yet.
As shown in the image, WhatsApp will prompt users to choose what to back up, including photos, audio, video, documents, and other files. In addition, WhatsApp will also display the archive size for each section. This way you can calculate the exact size of the backup.
The feature is currently being tested, so WhatsApp has not yet added the ability to manage backups for all users, but an update should be released shortly.
Recently it became known that WhatsApp is developing a new profile design for devices that run the Android operating system.
Apple Suddenly Released iPhone Update Whose Users Don’t Want to Upgrade to iOS 15
Apple yesterday released a major update to the iPhone and iPad operating systems, iOS 15.1 and iPadOS 15.1, which brought many changes, improvements and new features, including support for sharing and listening to SharePlay, new modes for iPhone 13, and so on.

This version contains important security updates. “
The updates fix bugs related to sound, ColorSync, Continuity camera, CoreGraphics framework, GPU drivers, IOMobileFrameBuffer kernel extension, kernel itself, Sidecar function, status bar, voice control and WebKit engine.
Microsoft is preparing a simplified Windows 11 SE for cheap laptops
Microsoft is now preparing to release its signature low-cost Microsoft Surface laptop to compete with ChromeOS-based Chromebooks. And especially for such laptops, a simplified version of the operating system is being created – Windows 11 SE.
This was told by the columnist Zac Bowden from Windows Central, who often gives interesting, later confirmed information about Windows and other Microsoft products.
Bowden notes that the new Microsoft Surface is aimed at high school students and is aimed at the lower price segment. Codenamed Surface Laptop SE is equipped with an Intel Celeron N4120 processor, 8GB of RAM and an 11.6-inch display with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. For ports, one USB Type-A, one USB Type-C, 3.5 mm headphone jack are provided.
Windows 11 SE is seen as Microsoft’s possible answer to Chrome OS. Since Windows 11 raises the bar on system requirements for most PCs significantly, a dedicated edition can provide reliable performance on entry-level laptops.
According to Bowden’s sources, the device has largely been finalized and Microsoft plans to announce it before the end of the year.
Channel owners will be able to generate income, but not immediately. Telegram has its own advertising platform
The team of the popular messenger Telegram has launched its own Telegram Ad Platform. It is described on the promote.telegram.org page on the messenger’s official website.
Telegram sponsored messages or Sponsored messages appear in large public one-to-many channels with over 1000 subscribers. Advertising messages are limited to 160 characters. As the Telegram team promises, the advertisements are based solely on the topic of the public channels in which they are displayed.
The developers emphasize that no user data is collected or analyzed to display advertisements. Every user viewing a specific channel in Telegram sees the same advertising messages. Telegram also does not track whether users click on an ad message and does not profile them based on their activity.
For their part, advertisers can choose the language and approximate theme of the channels on which their ads will be displayed. You can also select specific channels where specific ads will appear, or add specific channels where they won’t appear.
Telegram advertisements are currently in test mode. Telegram promises to start sharing ad revenues with the owners of public channels as soon as the ads are launched in full mode and allow Telegram to cover its main costs.
