on

Amazon said improvements will be made to Alexa connected devices. New live video content will be available on the Echo Show smart screens. This will allow easy access to the various news channels. Just say out loud “Go to video services” and choose the desired video provider available.

This is because it is possible to use your voice to watch movies, videos and TV shows from Prime Video or other compatible streaming services. People TV, ET Live and Bloomberg TV have also just brought in their video content for the enjoyment of Echo Show users. Amazon informs that several collaborators will still complete the ranks. New channels as well as pre-existing libraries are now accessible at the bottom of the screen.

New content that is available since the update

All devices compatible with Echo Show are now customizable. Additionally, linking video streaming services to your Echo Show is currently feasible. Users can now access information directly using voice through Voice ID.

For people who prefer to use Alexa, using common reading commands is not really relevant anymore. The intelligent personal assistant communicates by voice command and can be connected to devices such as Echo Auto, Echo Buds, Echo Frames, cars and even smart homes. New sharing features are also visible on the older Echo Show 10 and Echo Show 8 versions.

Alexa now has the possibility to share the ETAs of its users

In addition to its ability to integrate most of the devices most used daily, Alexa now offers its users to share their ETA or Estimated Time of Arrival. It is typically used to give customers an approximation of when a supplier will arrive at their destination, or to notify customers of the arrival time of a service specialist.

In the case of Amazon, sharing its ETA with Alexa makes it possible to announce the moment of arrival of the user to devices compatible with Amazon’s intelligent personal assistant such as a smart speaker for example. If a connected device is associated with Android, the user has the possibility to send a command by SMS. Alexa uses the default browsers of connected smartphones to browse.

There are almost 1 billion 5G users Ericsson report shows

According to a report by Ericsson cited by The Verge, by the end of this year, the number of 5G subscribers in the world will reach 1 billion.

Of course, this is far from the performance of 4G networks, which are now used by about 5 billion people, but still this is a fairly significant part of the market.

There are almost 1 billion 5G users. Ericsson report shows that operators often ask for more money for such tariffs.

Of course, 5G adoption is far from uneven. In North America, about 35% of subscribers will use 5G networks by the end of this year.

At the same time, the report indicates that operators often ask for more money for the higher speeds offered by new networks. Dividing into corresponding tariffs is popular among operators in Western Europe, but overall, 25% of operators worldwide charge extra for 5G. And the average markup is 40%.

Ericsson believes that, unfortunately, this trend will continue for several more years, as operators need to compensate for the costs of developing a new network.

Is Apple Helping the Chinese Government Fight Protests? The company cut the AirDrop function in the Middle Kingdom

Is Apple Helping the Chinese Government Fight Protests The company

The history of protests in China is overgrown with new interesting details related to IT companies.

Is Apple Helping the Chinese Government Fight Protests?  The company cut the AirDrop function in the Middle Kingdom

Just weeks before the protests began, Apple reportedly made a major change to how AirDrop works, and only in China. After updating to iOS 16.1.1, AirDrop in the mode of receiving messages from everyone became possible only for 10 minutes, after which AirDrop simply turns off. In normal mode, AirDrop has no time limit, as there is none now and all over the world outside of China.

The fact is that AirDrop is one of the ways protesters communicate, and not only in China. AirDrop works locally in smartphone-to-smartphone mode, without relying on external networks, so it cannot simply be blocked or read data. But in this case, for some reason, Apple decided to seriously change the function, although it did not turn it off completely.

The CNBC resource also notes that the corresponding update was released a month after Chinese President Xi Jinping was re-elected for a third term.

Recall that Huawei smartphones have been noticed that they automatically delete videos that depict events related to protests in China.
