Google Pixel 3

It’s Monday of another month, and that implies Google Pixel 3 is getting its monthly security patches. Downloads for both full factory images and sideloadable OTAs are up and accessible while we trust that the update will take off through the more usual methods — which for the most part takes at any rate an hour or two.

Pixel patches during the current month’s update incorporate a couple of fixes. It is just an improved hotword location for the “OK Google” direction. The Pixel 3a likewise joins its ancestors in getting its first monthly security update.

There isn’t any exact fix included for the random shutdown issue some were encountering on the Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL. The general security announcement likewise shows that there is a lot of “high” and “critical” severity patches to Android in the current month’s updates. So download it as soon as it arrives.

Strangely, we have another bearer part for pictures this month, with Verizon-specific Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL pictures landing (PQ3A.190605.004.A1) included with the June builds shared with Pixel 2 and 2016 Pixel series (PQ3A.190605.003).

The new Pixel 3a and 3a XL additionally get their own builds (PQ3B.190605.006), which comprises their first monthly security update. The Pixel C isn’t deserted, either, catching its June update on Oreo.

The update size for the Pixel 3a is around 109.5MB, bringing the latest June patch as well. The June Patch has some serious issues fixed.

Alongside the numerous users on the discussions, Android Authority has confirmed the Google Fi blackout using three separate phones.

Strangely, while huge numbers of the forum users are unable to place Wi-Fi calls using Fi. Each of the three of the phones experienced Fi blackouts on both Wi-Fi and cellular calls.

The firm knows about the Fi outage and is effectively working for a fix. Meanwhile, Google suggests:

  • Download the Hangouts Dialer.
  • In Hangouts, set incoming calls to “On”: Settings > Your Fi Account Google Fi Calls & SMS >Incoming Calls (On).

Solar Eclipse

Nearly, 120 years later the footage of Solar Eclipse has been found and is now on YT. This is a very great finding since at that time, watching a Solar Eclipse was not as easy as it is now.

The Eclipse in this recorded video occurred on May 28th, 1900. The recording took place in North Carolina when the British Astronomical Association was having its expenditure. The footage was captured by Magician Nevil Maskelyne. The eclipse he recorded is a total Solar Eclipse.

The footage, at that time, was recorded using a telescopic adapter for the camera.

Actually, before this release, the videotape was stored at the Royal Astronomical Association. As per the Association, this was Nevil’s second attempt. He recorded the first eclipse in 1898, however, somebody stole it, and till date, it is nowhere to be found.

Now this organization, took the pain and converted the video to 4K. But on YT, you can only watch it in 720p right now.

But BFI did their efforts. They obtained the footage, and reassembled the footage frame by frame.

However, it is now super easy to capture the eclipse, thanks to modern technology.

Next eclipse will show up in 2024, so be ready, else, you will have to wait for more years till 2045 to watch it.

The day when it all started. When the handheld smartphones got taller stronger and sharper :P. The devices’ display has got a taller display for a few years. However, most of the apps sill follows the 16:9 aspect ratio to date. However, Google is not. They are constantly making it easier for users to use the apps and navigate around the app. That’s exactly what new Google Play Store update is all about.

The Update is a pretty decent one. It brings the Google’s very own Material design to the track. Also, to make the navigation a bit easier, Google has included the Bottom Navigation Bar in the Play Store update.

The main AppBar Tab menu has been shifted to the bottom of the app, making it pretty easier to reach.

The Top slidable menu below the search bar, is the specific menu.

Talking about the Search Bar, notice that the older green title bar is replaced with a single, white and decent looking search bar.

This kind of the design implementation somehow from Samsung’s One UI. The OneUI focuses on easier usability on the larger displays. Samsung’s own apps are specially designed for easy usability as well.

Well, it can go pretty good if OEMs keep on launching larger display smartphones, these kinds of apps can work even better then.

The update is gradually rolling out, in phases. If you are not able to get the update already, Go to three bar menu > Settings > Tap on Play Store version.

IF still, you aren’t able to get the update, consider sideloading the app from ApkMirror.

Just Download the file and open it, then tap install to install. Enjoy the New UI!

Huawei is having pretty bad days right now. After barring from the Android, Intel, Qualcomm, Microsoft, and even ARM, it was kicked out of the SD Association, making them lose the rights of designing SD card supported products with standards assigned by SD Association.

Just not this, now Huawei is out of the Wi-Fi Alliance as well, although temporarily. Following the orders from Trump Administration, Wi-Fi Alliance terminated the membership of the firm for now.

But the question arises, will Huawei phone be able to use Wi-Fi at all or not. The Answer is, yes it can, and in the future, they can use Wi-Fi. But their innovation will not influence the world as of now.

However, this can harm Huawei in the long run, thus not allowing them to compete.

Now the thing is Huawei is been kicked pretty badly now. Either they can create their own Wi-Fi Alliance or join with those which do not affiliate with US-based Alliance.

Do you think that the China-based manufacturer can have a bigger comeback to the global market?

Let us know in the comments what do you think.
