Google Drops Android Q Beta 3 With New Navigation Controls, More Features

Published

on

By

Google is making speedy plans to ensure the Android Q hits the market as at when due. That is evident in how they are improving their launch sequences, so much that we are already on the third beta version of the coming dessert.

Wait a minute: you haven’t heard that the Android Q Beta 3 is out already?

If you are currently signed on to the beta program, and your device happens to be on the list of supported units, you should go get your own update too.

This is not just one of those maintenance updates that fix bugs and brings stability – although it does those things too. What we love most about this one is the features it brings, and the ones it takes away.

Of course, you shouldn’t be looking to have Android Beam again, and it is not coming back anytime soon either. What we expect at this stage is some upgrade to that, and we would love to have something that worked as seamlessly as AirDrop on the iPhones.

Besides that, there is a revamped navigation system in place. If you have been looking forward to getting rid of the back button, here is to that dream coming true. If we are to look closely at this, we might say Google is finally going the way of Apple in cutting down the buttons to the barest minimum and essentials.

We shouldn’t spoil all the fun for you here. Go get your betas and let’s know what you think of it too.

BlackBerry Android apps are also disappearing soon

Published

By

With all the talk about LG, HTC, and Sony’s phone businesses being in trouble, there is one brand that has seemingly been ignored. To be fair, BlackBerry has long surrendered its phone-making business to TCL but its name still used to ring in Android circles. The last news we heard from its wasn’t good, with BlackBerry Messenger announced to be going away. It won’t be alone, at least, as BlackBerry’s other Android apps are reportedly riding off into the sunset as well.

BlackBerry may no longer be making phones but it has realigned its focus on its software products. Most if not all of these apps were designed with enterprise users and business settings in mind. Even BBM, which was at one point believed to be the Android world’s answer to Apple iMessage, is mostly used in those environments because of their security and privacy features.

The company actually has a suite of Android apps for that purpose but their number seems to dwindle down. According to the company’s support lifecycle page, some of these apps are scheduled to reach their end of life by June 30 this year. That practically means that all development, including bug fixes and customer support, will end.

Most Android users will probably not have heard of apps like Productivity Tab, Power Center, Notable and Device Search as these have been limited to BB phones and customers. Within BlackBerry’s circle, however, some of those names do carry some weight and it might be surprising to see them retired.

The bigger implication is that the company could be winding down what little business it has left. With no new BlackBerry-branded phone even rumored and fewer apps to cater to customers, it might be just a matter of time before BlackBerry becomes just a footnote in smartphone history.

Windows 10’s big May 2019 Update is blocked on PCs using USB storage

Published

A weird issue with an easy workaround

Microsoft hasn’t officially released Windows 10’s May 2019 Update to everyone just yet, but the company is already warning of a very weird bug with it. Microsoft is blocking the update on PCs that have a USB hard disk like a thumb drive attached, or machines with an SD Card in the SD Card reader. “Inappropriate drive reassignment can occur on eligible computers that have an external USB device or SD memory card attached during the installation of the May 2019 update,” warns a Microsoft support article.

This means that if you had a USB drive with the D: letter assigned by Windows, after the May 2019 Update it could have shifted along to E: instead. That wouldn’t cause a lot of headaches for most consumers, but for tightly managed business machines any drive letter change could be a big problem. Microsoft is now blocking the May 2019 Update on machines with this storage attached, and all you’ll need to do is remove any USB or SD storage to complete the upgrade.MICROSOFT IS TESTING THIS MAY UPDATE FOR A LONGER PERIOD OF TIME

Microsoft notes “this issue will be resolved in a future servicing update for Windows 10,” but that clearly won’t be available in time for when the company starts distributing this May 2019 Update later next month. Windows 10 testers on the Release Preview ring can already get access to the final May 2019 Update, and Microsoft is being far more careful with its last-minute testing this time around.

The previous October 2018 Update hit some file deletion issues when it first rolled out, and Microsoft clearly doesn’t want a repeat of any similar issues. Still, it’s strange that Microsoft only detected this USB storage issue late in the May 2019 Update, when it has millions of Windows 10 testers helping flag issues like these.
