The all-new Windows 10X on a single screen PC: early reviews and interface

Published

on

The first real reviews about the fundamentally new operating system Windows 10X, which Microsoft is preparing for release, appeared on the network.

Several sources at once, including the editor-in-chief of the authoritative resource The Verge Tom Warren, the editor of the famous resource XDA Developers Max Weinbach and the editor of Windows Central Zac Bowden, published reviews, screenshots and even a couple of videos.

Sources unanimously compare Windows 10X with Google’s Chrome OS. Apparently, Windows 10X only works with a Microsoft Account and requires a network connection to complete the setup with setup.

It is noted that the fresh test build of Windows 10X (20279.1002) is already close to the final one. The screenshots show the interface on a single screen PC. It is this version of Windows 10X that Microsoft plans to release in the first place.

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.

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.
