At the opening of the WWDC 2021 Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple announced an important innovation for its FaceTime video calling service.
Previously, FaceTime calls were only available to users of Apple devices, but now users of competing platforms, for example, from an Android smartphone or a Windows laptop, will be able to join a video meeting. This can be done through a browser.
The new mobile platform iOS 15 introduces the function of creating links to a FaceTime video meeting, this link can be sent to all friends and colleagues who can join it from their devices. FaceTime calls will remain end-to-end encrypted even on competing OS devices.
The new FaceTime feature will be available in the fall, along with the release of Apple’s new software platforms.
Popular Action Launcher Android skin gets more free features
Action Launcher is a fairly popular shell for the Android operating system among paid ones. The developers have released Action Launcher v50, which has many more free features for those who do not want to pay for such features.
The app has gone through a lot of improvements over the years to keep up with some of the key improvements made by Google. However, in recent times there has been more and more criticism that the free basic version had a minimum number of features.
The Action Launcher’s implementation of the Freemium system has historically been terrible. We pushed people too aggressively to buy the Plus upgrade, which turned off so many people, and the app was hardly interesting for non-paying users.
Action Launcher v50 is suitable for everyone whether you pay or not. The new version offers an improved search engine that uses the Pixel Launcher. Action search gives you the best results on the web and on your device, as well as some action launcher settings that can be toggled right from the home screen.
In addition to action search and other free features, the action launcher’s own settings are changed. The app adds a settings search bar as well as shortcuts to recently changed settings.
