Google has changed the requirements for connecting smartphones to the Android Auto car platform.
Many car owners use Android Auto to keep their media and messages accessible while driving.
From launch, a wired connection to Android Auto only required a phone running Android 6.0 Marshmallow or later, a high-quality USB cable, and an Android Auto compatible media system.
Now Google has updated the list of requirements on the support page – to connect via a USB cable, you need a smartphone with Android version 8.0 Oreo or later. At the same time, the official Android Auto website still indicates the old requirements – Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Google did not explain what caused the raising of requirements.
Android 12L, good protection and decent platform. Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 4 Pro tablet options appeared
Samsung intends to expand its range of rugged devices with the Galaxy Tab Active 4 Pro tablet.
The model could have come out with the XCover 6 Pro smartphone, but the company decided to release only the smartphone at first. The tablet is now lit up in the databases of regulators, so it will definitely come out and will definitely be called the Galaxy Tab Active 4 Pro.
It is known that there will be a version with a 5G modem, and support for Bluetooth 5.2 is also reported. The SoC Snapdragon 778G will serve as the heart, and the tablet will also have 4 GB of RAM and a screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. The OS will be Android 12L.
Elon Musk won the lawsuit against Twitter. Now the billionaire will be given data on spam accounts
The court ordered the social network Twitter to transfer to Elon Musk files from the former general manager of spam accounts Kavon Bakpour. It was the bot accounts that became the main cause of the proceedings in court after Musk refused to buy the company because of false data about the number of fake accounts.
A Delaware court has ordered Twitter to collect, examine, and release the Bakepur documents for Musk to review. Thus, the billionaire won in court.
Bakpour himself left the company in April, when the management of Twitter decided to sell the company to Musk. According to the documents, he was one of the “most closely involved” executives who were involved in determining the number of spam accounts.
Earlier, Twitter filed a lawsuit against Musk, because he unilaterally refused to acquire a social network. The management of the network felt that the court could force Mack to change his mind.
At the same time, we note that the founder of Tesla and SpaceX previously said that he was ready to return to the deal on the same terms, but the company needs to select 100 accounts and explain why they can be considered genuine, and not sources of spam.
Google unexpectedly released the final version of Android 13. It is already available on Pixel smartphones, until the end of the year on Xiaomi, OnePlus, Samsung, Vivo and other smartphones.
