The price of the Microsoft Surface headphones is down now. The device usually cost around $350 but now, you will get a straight $100 off on the MRP. That means this headphone can be yours for $250 only!

This headphone is comparable with the Bose QC35 II headphones and priced similar as well. If you own it, you will have a headphone with superior noise cancellation, superior sound quality, 3.5-mm headphone jack support, and much more.

Even you can adjust the noise cancellation so that you need not to remove the headphones when talking to someone.

With a single touch, you can even change tracks playing. Yes, the Microsoft Surface Headphones features this touch, which is quite helpful.

You can now get the headphones from Microsoft or Amazon.

Microsoft had first introduced PowerToys in Windows 95 as a way for Windows engineers to test a prototype feature. They packed some of the best tweaks and features into a PowerToys bundle.  These PowerToys included popular utilities like Tweak UI to customize the Windows user interface, Quick Res to quickly change screen resolutions, and Send To X that let you send files and folders to the command line, clipboard, or desktop.

Now, Microsoft is reintroducing PowerToys in Windows 10. The software giant is open-sourcing PowerToys on GitHub, so anyone can contribute and create power user tools for Windows 10.

Microsoft is in the early stages of bringing this to all its users. Some early features include a new maximize to the desktop widget and a Windows key shortcut guide.

The maximize to desktop widget places a pop-up button over the maximize button when you hover over it. You can quickly send an app to another desktop by utilizing Windows 10’s multi-desktop view. The Windows shortcut guide utility simply shows a keyboard shortcut guide when you hold down the Windows key.

Some other utilities Microsoft’s been working on are –

  1. Full window manager, including specific layouts for docking and undocking laptops
  2. Keyboard shortcut manager
  3. Win+R replacement
  4. Better alt+tab including browser tab integration and search for running apps
  5. Battery tracker
  6. Batch file re-namer
  7. Quick resolution swaps in the taskbar
  8. Mouse events without focus
  9. Cmd (or PS or Bash) from here
  10. Contents menu file browsing

If you are a developer or interested in contributing to the project, you can check it out on Github. Microsoft is looking for feedback and contributions, just like it did with Windows Calculator.  Microsoft plans to preview these PowerToys utilities in the summer this year. The corresponding source code is already published on GitHub.

At Build 2019, Microsoft announced some updates about Edge browser. After Microsoft decided to rebuild edge from scratch on Google’s Chromium open source project, their engineers are working closely together to achieve this task. Now, Edge on Windows 10 aims to address some of the “fundamental frustrations” with modern browsers.

One of the top new features announced is Internet Explorer integration. With this, Microsoft users will be able to run apps based on the legacy browser right within the Edge browser.

Microsoft also announced privacy-focused controls. The new controls have three levels — Unrestricted, Balanced and Strict. Depending on which option you pick, Microsoft Edge automatically tweaks how third parties can track you on the web.

The next feature is Collections, through which users can collect, organize, share and export content with Office. For developers, Microsoft has promised it will soon add support for Chromium-compatible extensions on Edge.

You can also test these new features on Microsoft Edge Dev and Canary. Check them out here

Microsoft 365

Let’s first know what exactly Microsoft 365 is? It is a SaaS or says Software as a Service meant for businesses. In actual, it is a combination of Windows 10, Office 365 and Enterprise Security + Mobility. And with the security of a business in mind, Microsoft today announced a set of security features for the Saas.

Starting from Microsoft 365 E5 and E5 Compliance, Microsoft is now introducing Advanced Message encryption. That means, even if your mail leaves the office, it will still remain encrypted. Everything here relies on the admin, who can also take away the encryption rights as well.

Also, Microsoft is adding a new search tool, which gives you the ability to take action on at-risk sensitive data. However, this feature is still under Beta. Also, you can prevent sending sensitive information to the Teams channel as well.

Microsoft 365 will also come with new compliance features. The Compliance Manager will give you the ability to create assessments, which will also support both Microsoft and 3rd party applications on the premises. It will also allow you to use the Secure Score API and the Multi – Geo feature will allow you to store data anywhere around the world.

Now you can group call 50 people at once in Skype https://www.onetechstop.net/2019/04/06/now-you-can-group-call-50-people-at-once-in-skype/ https://www.onetechstop.net/2019/04/06/now-you-can-group-call-50-people-at-once-in-skype/#respond Sat, 06 Apr 2019 17:45:12 +0000 https://www.onetechstop.net/?p=35456

After spending some time in beta testing, Skype finally brings support for 50 people in a call to everyone. Previously Skype only allowed 25 people max in a group video or audio call. Compared to that Apple’s Facetime allows 32 participants. They have also changed how the call starts. Unlike the default ringing, now Skype pushes a simple notification asking you to join the call. However, the call maker can ring individual members and can even ring everyone if the number of participants is less than 25.

Call up to 50 people at once with Skype!

Starting today, Skype is doubling the amount of people that can simultaneously be on a video or audio group call. You can now call and have up to 50 people in a call, all at once. Whether you’re catching up with your friends, having a team status update, or a conference call with speakers based all around the globe, Skype makes it easy to get everyone in one place. Every Skype group with up to 50 people now supports calling, whether you’re ringing just your best friend or 45 coworkers.

Group call notifications

With the increase in the number of participants, we also made a few changes to how these larger calls start. We added a notification to replace the ringing as the default, allowing every member of the group to receive a quick ping to join the call. These notifications are a simple, unobtrusive way to get your calls and meetings (be it between family, friends, podcast guests, or coworkers) started. If the notification of starting a call is not enough, you can select individual members to ring, or if your group is less than 25 participants, you can ring the entire group.

Skype made it easier for you to get together with a larger group of people.

Large group calling is available on the latest version of Skype. For more questions about group calls and our new notifications, read our support article. We also love to hear from you on the Skype Community, where millions of Skype users have registered to share their expertise, feedback, and Skype stories.

OneNote, which is a major Office Suite app, also got support for Dark Mode. Aggiornamentilumia.it reports that they managed to lay their hands on an unreleased build of OneNote for Windows 10 which features an all-new Dark theme.

 

As you can see, the dark mode excludes the actual work surface of OneNote.  The theme is synchronized to your MS Account, meaning the theme will follow you from PC to PC.

What do you think about the new Dark Theme? Let us know in the comments below.

At the Game Developers Conference 2019, Microsoft is said to launch its Xbox Cross Platform gaming. This will allow us gamers to play Xbox Live titles on our Android, Nintendo Switch and others.

You can understand this as the Minecraft Game, which is the Xbox Live Title, currently available on various platforms. Minecraft requires users to log in to the Xbox Live account.

This is what the GDC 2019 website says:

Xbox Live is one of the largest, most engaged gaming communities on the planet with decades of experience providing managed game services to developers that save you time and unlock all of the social and engagement features that players love.

Although Microsoft was trying previously, failed considerably. However, they are going to try this again. And this time they might do it. This proper SDK will allow the developers to design games that can run on any platform using Xbox Live.

See, the gaming between these available platforms is so confusing. But battle royale games are trying to unite these platforms. It is completely dependent on these giants to bring such tech that can unify all the platforms.
