Google Play will now let you try apps before installing them

The Google Play Playtime event is underway in Berlin and San Francisco. Google has announced several new updates for Google Play and new features in Play Console. One of the most important updates announced by the company is the availability of Google Instant Apps in the Play Store. The company also has the “Test Now” button with which the user can try running the application before installing it on the device.

The company has integrated instant applications with a Test Now button into the list of stores. The user can simply touch it and can experience the application without having to install it first. This is an important update because it eliminates the need to install and uninstall the application.

“Android instant applications allow users to enjoy beautiful, immersive applications with fluid hardware and animation design, without installing them on their devices,” Google says in their blog. For now, there is a small collection of instant applications available in the Play Store, including NYTimes, RedBull, BuzzFeed and more.

Google has also introduced the new choice of publishers in the list of stores that is now available in 17 countries. It shows the applications and games of the highest quality that Google publishers love. Google recently announced the winners of the Indie Games Festival in San Francisco and has now opened the second independent games competition in Europe for the nominations.

He also launched a new home for in-store games with movie trailers and game screenshots. Google is also considering adding two new navigation destinations: New and Premium soon. Google has also improved Play Store by adding features for developers. To begin with, he added five new vital Android features and also increased device coverage to help address user issues related to battery consumption, locks and rendering time.

Google also improves pre-launch reporting and enables it for all developers. Google installs and automatically tests the app as soon as a developer downloads alpha or beta APK. “The report will talk about locks, display issues, security vulnerabilities and now performance issues,” Google says. The company is also implementing a policy that prohibits applications that systematically have problems such as blocking, freezing or any other malfunction in most devices.


Qualcomm performs first 5G test on a mobile device, debuts 5G reference smartphone design

The long march from Qualcomm to 5G has taken a step closer to today’s reality as the company announced that it has completed its first 5G connection test on a mobile device. The test was completed with the X50 5G modem first announced a year ago and performed in the 28 GHz millimeter waveband. Qualcomm said the modem has reached gigabit speeds in this test but is capable of speeds of 5Gbps after the complete implementations of 5G are completed.

In addition, Qualcomm announced its first reference model for 5G smartphones, which will be used to test modems, radios and 5G networks with smartphone manufacturers over the next year. The reference design has a thickness of 9 mm and has an edge-to-edge display, like many current smartphones available today.

To operate the X50 modem in a smartphone form factor, Qualcomm has developed a new millimeter wave antenna that is about the size of a penny. The company says it can equip two of these antennas in a smartphone, and while it is already the smallest millimeter wave design available, it is expected to reduce it by 50% in the next twelve months.

In addition to the new 5G, Qualcomm also announced a series of components that will facilitate device manufacturers’ support for the new 600 MHz T-Mobile spectrum being deployed. Currently, the only smartphone that can take advantage of the new spectrum is the LG V30, although Qualcomm expects more phones to admit it before the end of this year and early next.

Finally, Qualcomm announced the new Snapdragon 636 processor for mid-range smartphones. The 636 happens at 630, which has just begun to appear on the phones in the last two months, and enjoys a 40 percent performance improvement. It’s a 14nm chip (for comparison, the high-end Snapdragon 835 is a 10nm chip, the lowest numbers are better) and supports FHD + high-speed displays, 600Mbps LTE connections and 24-megapixel cameras. Qualcomm said the new chip will be shipped to its customers starting in November, so it will probably be one or two years before they show up on a smartphone.


HTC U11 successors could be announced November 2nd

HTC is organizing an event on November 2, where it could announce two new versions of its U11 smartphone. The company today sent out invitations to an event for local media in Taiwan, with the note with a large “T” at the top, indicating that the HTC T line will focus there.

In recent weeks, leaks have emerged suggesting that the two new phone models: a mid-range device for the Google Android One program and a high-end device designed to support the latest flagship products. It is not known if the two are shipped in 2, but it seems safe to assume that at least one of them will come.


The first one is supposed to be called U11 life, which will be a lighter version of the original U11. It is said that there is a 5.2 inch screen, a 630 Snapdragon processor and 16 megapixel cameras in the front and back. Apparently appears in two models, one with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage and another with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. Leaked images suggest you will have a bright blue backing like the original. Since this is an Android One phone, you can expect its price to reach around $ 400, like the Moto X 4.

The other HTC phone is supposedly the U11 Plus, which would be a bigger and better version of the original U11. It is supposed to have a screen of almost 6 inches, with a resolution of 2880 x 1440, and a 18: 9 aspect ratio, which causes even death with Pixel 2 XL. It will look like a Snapdragon 835 processor, a 12-megapixel rear camera and a resistance to IP68. It is expected to come in two models, a model with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage and a template with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Basically, it would be much like Pixel XL 2 except it was under HTC Sense running instead of the Android version of Android.

Even if an event has been announced for Taiwan so far, it seems likely that these two phones will be directed to the United States and Europe, where they will meet with other competing devices. HTC could have a new VR to share also in the event, but there are no specific rumors for now.


The Xbox One is getting a major update today, including a faster dashboard

Microsoft has gradually updated its Xbox One board to make the experience much faster to use. While the original Xbox One was released with Kinect and voice commands, much of the navigation with a controller was slow and uncomfortable. Microsoft began resolving some of these performance issues with some updates earlier this year, but today’s Xbox One control panel goes even further.

Microsoft moves the guide one more time to order it horizontally. You can switch between different sections using the Xbox controller bumpers or the left sticker and pad d. Signatures, achievements, parties / LFG, friends, home, messages, shows and a new action center (with configuration) are now part of the updated guide. It works very similar to what it was in the past, but now it is much faster to change the section with the controller.

While accessing separate sections, such as applications and games, seems faster, having friends still feels a bit buried in this update. The Friends tab provides a brief overview of avatars online, but you should navigate further to get more information. Much of the new update is designed to keep you pushing even more on the menus to do things, and some will find it irritating first. Speed ‚Äč‚Äčimprovements make it worth it over time.

There is also a new startup interface, and some good examples of the influences of Fluent Design that Microsoft brings to its products. You can link things like favorite friends to the start section, next to games and applications. Fixed games will even show sequences of activity, allowing you to see when a friend plays a particular title. I used the update for months and discovered that I rarely used the startup interface because the contextual guide seems even faster.

Microsoft has also included a new lightweight theme with this new board. If you were a fan of the style of the Xbox 360 user interface, bring back some of these lighter elements. If you are an OLED TV user, you will be happy to know that Microsoft is also enhancing its screen reduction feature to avoid ghosting. It will also show notifications when your Xbox is idle.

Much of the new board is preparing for the new Microsoft Xbox One X console. You can easily transfer games to external units with the new dashboard or copy games on a home network to another console. You can even download 4K content for some games on an Xbox One, ready for when the Xbox One X is delivered. GameDVR has also been updated to support screenshots and game clips up to 4K / HDR, and it is even possible to use the camera USB web to play the playback in the mixer.

The new Xbox One board will be available today for all Xbox One consoles and Xbox One S, and Microsoft soon promises “great features” for Xbox Insider testers. Hopefully this will include the amazing avatars that Microsoft joked earlier this year.

Apple hit with $440M in damages in VirnetX patent lawsuit

Finally, the legal battle between Apple and VirnetX might end. A US District Court Judge UU. In Texas, he issued a final judgment in the patent case, accusing Apple of infringing patents related to its iMessage and FaceTime functions.

The ruling, filed September 29, means that Apple is in trouble for $ 439.7 million in damages, company patents and VirnetX security software, said Monday in a statement.

The total damage is almost $ 140 million more than the $ 302.4 million that Apple received the VirtnetX payment a year ago. Intentional counterfeiting totaled $ 41 million more, while attorney fees and other costs reached $ 96 million, VirtnetX said.

The ruling appears to be the end of a trio of lawsuits filed since 2010 against Apple by VirnetX, a company that gets most of its money from the patented technology license that creates virtual private networks on the Internet.

VirnetX alleged that Apple was infringing patents covering computer communications and secure computers. In February 2016, a verdict ordered Apple to pay VirnetX $ 625.6 million for damages after two claims were combined.

But in August, a federal judge overturned the verdict, claiming that the combination of two trials in a single trial confused jurors and was unfair to Apple. He argued that the two cases should be tested separately.

Apple said it plans to appeal the ruling. Resolve for XX: the industry is looking to overcome obsolete ideas about “women in technology”. Special reports: all the most detailed features of CNET in an easy location.
