Google last year announced that it will roll out a new account switcher to its apps, which lets users easily manage all their Google settings, and now the company has begun rolling the feature on its Play Store.
Google is launching the new design to select users and is expected to be available more devices soon.
Like Gmail and most other G Suite apps, the profile image now appears at the right of the search bar.
The new location is pretty much in line what Gmail and G Suite apps have.
Once tapped on the full menu, one would get to see multiple accounts that are logged on the device, reports 9To5Google.
WhatsApp is working on a new feature that will make it easier for users to add contacts to their list by scanning a QR code.
According to a report in WABetaInfo, a fan website that tracks WhatsApp beta, QR Code scanning was first introduced in the iOS beta and now has made its way to the Android beta of the app. The feature is available in the 2.20.171 version of the app.
Android beta users will be able to find their own custom QR codes in the Settings section of the app on the top right side in front of the name.
Users who have enabled the feature will be able to display their own QR code to others and scan codes of other WhatsApp accounts.
According to 9to5Mac, AirPods Studio will have similar sensors that will detect whether the headphones are on the head or the neck, presumably playing or pausing content when the headphones are worn on the head.
The headphones will have sensors to detect the left and right ears, which means that there may not be fixed left and right channels. It might be possible to wear the headphones any way. (IANS)
Search engine giant Google on Monday launched Grow with Google OnAir that will help impart free digital skills training to everyone in the US and Canada for the first time.
The in-person ‘Grow with Google’ was launched in 2017 to help Americans get the digital skills they need to succeed.
To date, the Grow with Google programme has trained more than 4 million Americans on digital skills.
“Though we’re no longer able to gather in person, that doesn’t mean the learning has to stop. So we’re announcing virtual programmes from Grow with Google that can help,” Jesse Haines, Director, Grow with Google said in a statement.
The aim is to empower people — particularly jobseekers and small businesses — who are facing uncertainty and looking for digital skills training to help them increase their economic potential.
Google said it will offer digital skills training, interviews with career experts and programming from partners including Merit America and the National Congress of American Indians.
Topics will include “How to manage your business remotely in times of uncertainty” and “How to improve your resume with four practical strategies.”
After attending a Grow with Google OnAir workshop, attendees who are looking for more personalized help can register for a free one-on-one coaching session with a Googler.
“In addition to Grow with Google OnAir, which is available across the US, we continue to support our team of local Digital Coaches and our network of more than 7,000 local partner organizations, so that they can teach virtual workshops in their communities,” said Google. (IANS)
