At the time of the announcement of the Redmi K40 and K40 Pro smartphones, Xiaomi announced the preparation of MIUI 12.5 firmware for them, and this moment has come: MIUI 12.5 for Redmi K40 and K40 Pro has been released. True, so far only in the form of a closed beta version, so only participants in the early beta testing program can try it in practice. But when the final version of the firmware for these models will be released is still a big question.
But today it became known when Xiaomi will definitely stop working on MIUI for the “oldies” Redmi Note 7, Redmi Note 7 Pro and Xiaomi CC9e. Work on the internal beta version of the proprietary firmware for these three models will be discontinued on April 24th. Well, the latest custom firmware updates for these three smartphones will most likely be released no earlier than 2-3 months after the cessation of work.
The popular WhatsApp messenger will improve privacy. The new feature will allow users to hide their phone numbers in groups. So far, this feature is only available in beta version 126.96.36.199. and only on Android.
It was announced by Mark Zuckerberg. The new feature will allow you to hide the number from all users in the group, but then open it to those who are included in the exclusion list. For now, this option is available. Other security enhancements have also been introduced. By the way, Telegram has had this feature for a long time.
“We will continue to create new ways to protect your communications and keep them private and secure as private conversations.“Zuckerberg said.
New features include:
- leaving group chats without notification for all participants;
- ban on taking screenshots in certain chats;
- a list of who can see when the user is online.
It is not yet reported when these features will appear in the release. Earlier, WhatsApp introduced a new feature for group chats.
