Google has announced a new step towards a password-free future by introducing support for signing in for Android and Chrome using what it calls a Passkey, a passkey.
Passkeys allow you to use your smartphone or computer’s built-in authentication systems instead of a traditional password, such as a fingerprint scanner. They are supported by many major tech companies, and Apple, Google, and Microsoft are promising to add the feature to their OSes.
Essentially, access keys are credentials stored on a device, such as a phone or computer, that verify to a website or app that you are who you say you are. The user confirms his identity on the device, after which he can safely enter sites and services.
The feature is currently available for beta testing, with a stable release scheduled for the end of the year.
Redmi K60 has been called “the first flagship of 2023”. It will be released with MIUI 14
After photos of Redmi K60 boxes appeared on the web, a source got hold of some new details about the phone. In particular, the device is called “the first flagship of 2023.” That is, it may come out not just in January, as reported, but already in the first half of January.
This is indicated by ready-made MIUI 14 firmware not only for Redmi K60, but also for two other models – Redmi K60E and Redmi K60 Pro (for two of them they are designated V18.104.22.168.TMNCNXM and V22.214.171.124 .TMKCNXM). But it should be noted that the premiere of Redmi K60 in January will take place only in China, in other countries this model will appear later – and under other designations. For example, in the global market, the phone will debut under the designation Poco F5. Redmi K60 is expected to receive SoC Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
Fortnite switched to Unreal Engine 5.1 with the release of the first season of the fourth chapter. The game is now incompatible with Windows 7 and Windows 8.1
Epic Games today announced the first season of Fortnite’s Battle Royale Chapter 4. There are a lot of innovations in the game, but perhaps the most important thing is visual: Fortnite moved to the Unreal Engine 5.1 engine. This is definitely a plus in terms of graphics, but a minus in terms of compatibility: the game no longer supports Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.
What to do if you want to play, but don’t switch to Windows 10? Epic Games recommends using cloud gaming services like GeForce Now in this case.
All graphics innovations implemented in Unreal Engine 5.1 are supported by all platforms – PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PC (with reservations) and cloud services. With the release of the new part, a 3D accelerator with DirectX 12 support is recommended. Theoretically, the Nvidia GPU of the family no lower than Maxwell or AMD on the GCN architecture satisfies the minimum requirements, but the developers recommend using the GeForce RTX 2080 or Radeon RX 5700.
Google has released the final version of Android TV 13
Google has introduced the final version of Android TV 13. You should not expect the system in all modern devices in the near future, since even Google Chromecast models have just been updated to Android TV 12.
At the same time, the update also does not bring any radically new features. Basically Google concentrated on developers.
For general users, there’s a new keyboard layout API that allows you to select different language layouts for external keyboards, improved privacy features, and a feature that allows the device to pause playback if the HDMI signal changes to something new.
