Nice addition to MIUI 12.5. Xiaomi will expand the functionality of the MIUI + service

Published

on

Almost simultaneously with the MIUI 12.5 shell, Xiaomi introduced the MIUI + service. It is something very similar to Samsung DeX: MIUI + allows the company’s smartphones to connect to a Windows PC directly from the computer’s desktop. True, while its functionality is sharply limited: firstly, only computers with Windows are supported, and secondly, the technology now works only on 11 flagship models based on the Qualcomm platform. Considering the turn of Xiaomi and Redmi to SoC Mediatek, as well as the fact that MIUI 12.5 is available only on these 11 models so far, such restrictions are hardly pleasing to many users of non-compatible devices.

But Xiaomi understands that it is necessary to expand the functionality of a useful service, so in the next round of questions and answers regarding MIUI (in China, such are held at least once a quarter), the company announced the long-awaited MIUI + innovations. First, the service will work with Apple MacBook laptops. Secondly, its support will appear on smartphones built on SoC MediaTek. When this is implemented, it is not reported, but certain steps towards at least the supported smartphone variety may happen with one of the next waves of the MIUI 12.5 update.

Google degrades in Google Photos the definition of the place

Google has warned users about a new location policy for Google Photos (Google Photos).

Google degrades in Google Photos the definition of the place where the photo was taken

Google Photos will stop using a user account’s location history to determine where specific pictures were taken, according to a new support document. This policy will apply to users who have opted out of sharing location data for the camera app for privacy reasons.

Until now, if you didn’t allow the camera app to use your current location, Google Photos used two methods to roughly estimate where you took the photo. First, the app will try to identify visible landmarks in your photos, and second, it will use your location history to narrow down the area.

However, now Google Photos will rely solely on trying to identify landmarks in photos. As you can easily guess, this method is noticeably less reliable.

Google notes that the change has already started rolling out to some Google Photos users, with a full rollout expected in the coming months.

Google has introduced several new features for the OS without updating the version of Android.

For example, now Android has a Reading mode. This is a fairly serious innovation, which even requires a separate application, which is already available on Google Play.

The new mode is designed to optimize the reading process, allowing you to adjust the contrast, speech synthesis, font size and type, as well as highlight the main thing on the page. In general, Google says that the mode is intended for users with visual impairments and dyslexia, but people without the mentioned problems will be able to use some of its functions.

The main highlight of the new mode is that it works at the system level, which means that all kinds of settings can be configured, regardless of the application used.

Google also made available a speed-controlled text-to-speech feature with a choice of “natural-sounding voices” to choose from, and support for English, French, Italian, and Spanish.

In addition, the digital car key function has been updated, which allows you to use your smartphone instead of a car key. Now users can share these same digital keys. It is possible to view activity and control access to the machine. Currently, this feature is only supported by Pixel 6 and iPhone smartphones, but the list will expand in the near future.
