Microsoft built ads directly into Windows 11 Explorer, but only in beta so far

It seems that soon there will be more ads in Windows 11. Microsoft has already used the lock screen and the Start menu for this purpose, and soon ads may appear directly in Windows 11 Explorer. This “innovation” has already been implemented in the Windows 11 Insider test build.

However, Microsoft has previously experimented with this: OneDrive ads were displayed in Windows 10 Explorer, for which the company was heavily criticized. And now the same thing is happening with Windows 11, and this time Microsoft is advertising its services again: Microsoft Editor and … again OneDrive. Ads can be closed, but users note that they then reappear. At the same time, Microsoft began to embed shortcuts to its applications in the context menu that were not there before. For example, Clipchamp is a video editor backed by Microsoft. In the fully functional version, it costs $40 per month.

It’s not yet clear whether ads in Windows 11 Explorer are just a beta experiment, or whether the company is seriously considering integrating ads into Windows 11 custom, but judging by what Microsoft has done in the past, the latter should not be ruled out.

Whatsapp allows you to quietly leave a group

The WhatsApp team is working on a new feature that will allow users to “silently” leave group chats.

Whatsapp allows you to

Currently, when someone leaves a group chat, WhatsApp announces it to all members of the group. Now it is impossible to quietly leave the group so that all members do not know about it. But soon this may change.

The thematic resource WABetainfo drew attention to the innovation in the beta version – when a user leaves a group, only group administrators receive a notification. When a group member opts out, a dialog box appears that says “Only you and the group admins will be notified that you have left the group.”

Apple Allows Apps to Raise Subscription Prices Without Users’ Permission

Apple Allows Apps to Raise Subscription Prices Without Users Permission

Apple has changed its policy for apps and services in the App Store that offer a paid subscription with auto-renewal.

Apple Allows Apps to Raise Subscription Prices Without Users' Permission

Until now, when a developer increased the price of an auto-renewing subscription, users had to confirm that they agreed to continue paying for the subscription at the new price. Otherwise, the subscription was automatically cancelled. Now, with the update, the increased cost of the subscription will be charged even without the consent of the user.

Of course, Apple has provided some restrictions to avoid abuse. For example, developers are still required to notify users of a change in the cost of a subscription, and re-charging the new cost is not possible without the consent expressed by the user.

In addition, price increases cannot occur more than once a year, and the maximum price increase is $5 for regular subscriptions or $50 for annual subscriptions. Users will also be able to easily cancel their subscription if they wish.

Recently, Google updated the note for the May update of Google Play, adding to it some additional innovations that were not previously mentioned.

Most notable among these declassified innovations was the Photo Picker feature. This feature, first introduced in Android 13, aims to restrict apps from accessing media files on the device. Instead of giving access to all the media on the device at once, Photo Picker gives apps access to only selected media.

Google’s official documentation for Photo Picker mentions that the feature will arrive on devices running Android 12 and Android 11 via a Google Play system update.

Another new feature coming with the Google Play May update is support for installing and using streaming apps on devices running Android Automative. In addition, the update also adds the ability for parents to install the launcher on devices registered with Family Link.
