Google has decided to follow in Apple’s footsteps. Like the Cupertino giant, Google has slashed transaction fees for Android app developers on the Google Play online app store to 15%. Previously, the commission was 30%.
As with Apple, the rate cut from 30% to 15% only affects the first million dollars a developer earns each year.
The reduced commission will start operating on Google Play from July 1, 2021, six months later than Apple. Google believes that thanks to these changes, 99% of developers worldwide selling digital goods and services on Google Play will see a 50% reduction in commissions.
In November 2020, Apple officially announced that all developers who earned less than $ 1 million a year from selling apps and in-app purchases in the App Store will pay Apple a 15% commission instead of the standard 30%. The new tariffs began to operate shortly before the beginning of 2021.
How to quickly cancel an unsuccessful WhatsApp status: the function is already available in test mode
The team of the popular messenger WhatsApp has begun testing a new convenient feature for users of the Android mobile application.
The beta version of WhatsApp for Android under the number 126.96.36.199 introduced the Undo function, which allows you to quickly remove an unsuccessful status sent by mistake or typed with typos. Compared to regular deletion, this is a faster way to remove a status if it was sent by mistake or unplanned.
Normal status deletion will continue to work as well. In addition, WhatsApp will show an alert after the user cancels their status.
Currently, the ability to cancel statuses is available only for devices running on the Android platform. IOS users may have to wait a few more days. When the innovation will appear in the stable version of WhatsApp is still unknown.
No more restrictions: Google Play Store installed in Windows 11
A few days ago, Microsoft opened to the public a long-awaited feature in the new Windows 11 operating system in test mode – the ability to run applications created for the Android operating system.
But even the beta test launch turned out to be very limited – only for test participants in the US and only for 50 applications.
Enthusiasts could not come to terms with this injustice. And so, the developer ADeltaX reported on his Twitter page about the found way to install Google Play services and the Google Play store in the Windows Subsystem for Android. In essence, this opens up the possibility of installing almost any Android application on a Windows 11 computer.
Although the project is detailed on GitHub. Immediately, we note that it is not intended for beginners, therefore, if you do not know exactly what and how to do, then it is better not to risk it.
Recall that Android applications can run side by side with regular Windows applications, multitasking is supported with switching between applications using the Alt-Tab key combination, displaying in Task View (Task View), the ability to pin applications to the Start menu and the taskbar, display notifications in Action Center Windows, the ability to use the clipboard between Windows and Android applications.
Windows 11 installed on the iconic Xiaomi Mi 6
Users in China have a special love for Xiaomi Mi 6: many still believe that the company has not yet released a flagship that can replace this model. As a result, users still have a fairly large number of Mi 6s in their hands, which means that there are enough devices for experiments. The pictures below show the result of such an experiment.
One of the users managed to install Windows 11 on ARM on Mi 6. Of course, the system does not work super fast (the OS loads for more than a minute, some menus inside the OS itself take several seconds to load), but in general, Windows 11 on Mi 6 is quite efficient.
The EDK2 UEFI Firmware For Snapdragon 835 was reportedly used to install Windows 11 in ARM for this smartphone. It is also suitable for installing Windows 11 on OnePlus 5 and 5T, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, Motorola Moto Z2 Force and LG V30.
