Google Chrome OS has become the fastest growing operating system in the world

Published

on

Google claims Chrome OS is the fastest growing operating system in the world. Back in May, the search giant reported that Chrome OS has grown 92% in popularity over last year. According to the search giant, the popularity of Chrome OS is largely due to the desire of people to use their usual mobile applications on the computer.

The release of Android 12L indicates that Google is working hard to improve the capabilities of its proprietary OS and applications developed for it on devices with large screens such as tablets and laptops. The search giant currently offers Chrome OS for laptops. The company said that users of this operating system in 2021 used Android apps 50% more often than a year earlier.

Google also listed innovations that enable more efficient use of Android apps on Chrome OS. These include the introduction of Android 11 app support, improved windowing, low latency stylus support, and the introduction of Nearby Share in Chrome 96 and later.

Google said it will provide Chrome OS software developers with “additional guidance and new easy-to-use tools” in 2022.

Telegram Premium is getting closer – the messenger will no longer be “free forever”

Telegram Premium is getting closer the messenger will no

Since its global launch, the Telegram messenger has positioned itself as a “free forever” product. This message appeared when installing the program on Android. More precisely, the slogan was: “Telegram is free forever. Without advertising. No subscription fees.” But now it looks like things are about to change.

Telegram Premium is getting closer - the messenger will no longer be “free forever”

Developer Alessandro Paluzzi said that the text of the slide has changed in the section with translations for the client applications of the messenger. Now it looks like this: “Telegram offers free unlimited cloud storage for chats and media files.” Although there has been no official statement from the developers so far, it can be assumed that this is preparation for the launch of Telegram Premium.

In the fall of 2021, advertising appeared in the messenger: ads began to be displayed in large channels and groups. Premium features were also previously announced: in particular, paid account holders will receive a special badge next to their name, full-screen emojis and some other features will be available to them.

Thus, Telegram plans to improve the monetization of the product.

A revolution in the world of handheld Windows consoles. Ayaneo Air Plus on AMD’s latest platform will cost just $290

A revolution in the world of handheld Windows consoles Ayaneo

It looks like AMD has already revolutionized the handheld gaming market, it just takes time.

The other day we were talking about the new Ayn Loki console, which, starting at $500, will be based on Ryzen 6000, which means that in terms of performance it may even be better than Steam Deck. Now we can say that the Valve console is probably no longer the leader in terms of price and performance. At least in absentia.

A revolution in the world of handheld Windows consoles.  Ayaneo Air Plus on AMD's latest platform will cost just $290

Ayaneo has unveiled the Air Plus, which will start at just $290! And already for this money, the performance should be quite high.

The console will be based on AMD’s Mendocino APUs, which the company showed at Computex. They combine four processor cores on the Zen 2 architecture and a GPU on the RDNA 2 architecture. That is, this is the same set as the APU in the Steam Deck. AMD itself focuses these processors on cheap laptops, but no one bothers using them to create pocket set-top boxes.

Unfortunately, we do not yet know the details about the GPU configuration of such APUs, so we cannot confidently say that Ayaneo Air Plus will be more productive than Steam Deck, but it is likely that they will be at least on the same level.

True, there is one important nuance. The Air Plus’ six-inch screen will be Full HD, which is a much more significant load on the GPU compared to the Valve console. But at $290, there’s hardly anything to complain about. Suffice it to remember that now these consoles with older processors cost $ 1,000 or more.

It remains to be added that Mendocino APUs will be released in the fourth quarter, so consoles based on them will appear at least at the end of the year.

Android smartphones will learn to track snoring Google is already

Google is testing a feature for Android that will be responsible for detecting snoring and coughing.

Android smartphones will learn to track snoring.  Google is already working on this feature.

Google Health Studies released a new version this week to support the launch of a new study. This update also includes the “Sleep Audio Collection” study, available only to Google employees.

To participate in this study, you must be a Google employee and have an Android phone. The environmental conditions required for this study are that there should be no more than one sleeping adult in the same room who does not work for a competitor company.

Google explains that its Health Sensing team is actively working to bring an enhanced set of sensory capabilities and algorithms to Android devices in order to provide users with meaningful information about their sleep.

These cough and snoring detection algorithms will eventually evolve into a bedside monitoring feature on Android devices that will work privacy-preserving on the device to monitor coughs and snores at night.

By the way, we can recall a similar Snore & Noise Detect function, which was found in the Fitbit software code. It is quite possible that this is the same feature that the same team is working on, just in the case of Fitbit it will be available on the watch, and in the end Google will make it part of Android.
