  1. AdGuard 3.0 is now available. The new version of the popular content blocker for Android features a redesigned interface, new stealth mode, support for custom lists, and more. The new version of AdGuard is already available on the developer website. Point your Android browser to this URL and hit the download button to download the new version to your system. Note that you do need to allow application installations from unknown sources in the Android settings to install the app. What is AdGuard? AdGuard is a content blocker that runs silently in the background. It blocks advertisement and other undesirable elements in all browsers in the free version. Premium users have ads blocked in all apps that they run on their device. Some features are only available in the Premium version. You may buy a lifetime license or a subscription-based license on the AdGuard website. Tip: Check out our review of AdGuard DNS here. AdGuard 3.0 The app launches a wizard on first start that walks you through some essential configuration options. The wizard is well suited for new and inexperienced users who may feel overwhelmed when they access the entire options the app provides. It is naturally possible to manage all options in the Settings at any time. Existing users may notice the redesigned interface right away. Layout, icons, and styles have changed, and it is now possible to switch to a dark theme if that is preferred. Just activate it in Settings > General > Dark Theme to do so. The homepage displays the status of the protection and statistics. The developers have added charts to the app which you may access with a tap on the arrow icon next to any of the numbers on the homepage (e.g. ads blocked). AdGuard 3.0 supports more filter lists by default and custom URL filter lists. Select Settings > Content Blocking > Filters to get started. There you may enable or disable specific preset filters, e.g. the Security or Annoyances list. Custom filter support is reserved for Premium users of the application. You may use it to load filters from URLs that you specify provided that the filter lists are in the correct format. Stealth Mode is another new feature and it is reserved to premium users as well. Basically, what Stealth Mode does is add better privacy protections to the device. Stealth Mode supports a large range of privacy options; you may use it to enable the self-destruction of first-party or third-party cookies, change the TTL of third-party cookies, strip URLs of tracking parameters, disable specific browser APIs, hide your user-agent, mask your IP address, or hide search queries. Some features may appeal to all users, others are probably only of interest to advanced users. What else is new? The widget has been redesigned and features some stats about blocked requests. AdGuard supports DNS-over-TLS in version 3.0. You can find out more on the official blog. Closing Words AdGuard is a great application for Android to block ads and other undesirable elements on the device. It works best with a Premium license but does a good job as well when you run the free version. The new 3.0 upgrade introduces much needed functionality, some of it reserved for Premium users. The ability to load custom filter lists is handy, and the new Stealth Mode introduces privacy protections that give users more control over what is happening on their devices. AdGuard is available in sales regularly. New users may want to start with the free version and upgrade to the Premium version in an upcoming sale.

  2. Google Will Let Android Users Choose Their Browser Out of the Box Google has announced a series of changes for Android users in Europe in response to the latest antitrust concerns raised by the European Commission. Users will be allowed to choose what browser and search engine they want to use on Android out of the box. Currently, Android devices come with Google Chrome pre-installed and Google set as the default search engine, but in the near future, this is all going to change, Google says. While details on the browsers that would be offered to users haven’t been provided, today’s announcement is clearly good news for other browser developers, like Mozilla.Change possibly coming later this yearAt the same time, Microsoft is likely to significantly benefit from this change, as the company has launched an Android version of Microsoft Edge browser and is also the owner of Bing, the main alternative to Google search. “Now we’ll also do more to ensure that Android phone owners know about the wide choice of browsers and search engines available to download to their phones. This will involve asking users of existing and new Android devices in Europe which browser and search apps they would like to use,” Kent Walker, SVP of Global Affairs, explains. There are no specifics as to when this change is going to take place for Android, but Google says both new and existing users will be asked to choose their preferred browser and search engine. Google is the second tech giant to provide users with a choice of browsers out of the box after Microsoft was forced by the European Commission to do the same in Windows. Internet Explorerwas pre-installed in all versions of Windows, but following this decision, European users were also allowed to set other browsers as default when running the operating system the first time.

  3. Fake Apps Promise Updates to Latest Android Only to Bombard You with Ads Waiting for your device manufacturer to release the update to the latest version of Android is a painful experience, and Samsung users probably know this the best. And while many are looking into ways to get the upgrade before it officially becomes available for their devices, you should never (NEVER!) turn to apps in the Google Play Store that promise instant updates. Because as discovered by AP, the number of apps posted in the Play store and offering to update your devices to the latest Android release even if it’s not yet available is increasing every day. And it happens for a good reason: these apps try to trick people into downloading them only to then bombard them with ads. While I won’t link to such apps for an obvious reason, simple searches like “Update to Android P” returns several of them, and most claim they do the same thing: they download and install Android P on your smartphone, even if the manufacturer of the device hasn’t released it.Apps still available for downloadOf course, this sounds odd for power users, but there are obviously many beginners out there who eventually installed the apps hoping to get the latest Android. And the review sections of these apps pretty much speak for themselves, as most users found out the hard way that the purpose was to actually bring ads to their devices. Obviously, Android OS updates are never delivered via the Google Play Store, so you should never fall for such tactics. Always stick with the system update feature of the device, which is located in the settings section. The more worrying thing is that these apps somehow escaped Google’s filters even though they obviously violate the store guidelines. Hopefully, the search giant would take care of them shortly, but as a general precaution, make sure you check twice before installing something that sounds too good to be true. Source
  4. Google unveils ‘third gender’ emoji coming to Android this year Google has revealed dozens of “third gender” emoji coming to Android smartphones later this year. The new gender-inclusive emoji include police officers, superheroes, wizards, wrestlers and even zombies. Emoji are decided by the Unicode Consortium, which is made up of tech firms like Google, Microsoft, Apple and the internet’s main emoji hub Emojipedia. New emoji are added all the time, and dozens of new designs have now been revealed in a new paper published by Google. “Gender has many exceptions and implantation details, and many aspects of this have been discussed in past documents,” said Google’s Jennifer Daniel. “This document is to note Google’s intent to use gender-inclusive designs where code points exist and to signal Google’s interest in additional gender sequences.” Loads of emoji are getting a new “third gender” option — including zombies.Source:Supplied Apple, Google, Twitter, Facebook, Microsoft and Samsung all offer some “gender-inclusive” emoji already. But — as Google points out — not all human emoji have gender-neutral options. So Google has taken to adding “third gender” designs to a large number of existing emoji. “Each emoji that already has specific options for women or men will be unaffected by this change,” Emojipedia explained. “Gender isn’t going away, it’s getting a third option.” Some users have called for Google to return to its previous “genderless, skin-tone-less blobs”, which were a fan favourite. The “blobs” were largely gender-neutral, which meant that they didn’t cause offence. One Twitter user reacted to the news by writing: “Adding a third gender to emoji is fine I guess. But blob emotes had no gender and that was beautiful.” However, the blobs could also be slightly insulting: “As an aside, at the time the blobs existed on Android, the feedback sent to Google was often not supportive of the choice,” Emojipedia reveals. “People sent a woman in a red dress from iOS or Twitter weren’t necessarily pleased at the blob with a rose in its mouth that arrived on Android devices.” The new gender-neutral emoji will be “coming to Android this year” according to Emojipedia, but there’s no firm release date. It’s possible that other tech firms will also borrow these emoji. Source
  5. How Google could help an Android alternative reach the IoT throne KaiOS is racking up tens of millions of users by catering to the feature phone market. Its momentum with carriers could turn it into a formidable IoT player. Android accounts for about 85 percent of the global smartphone market; iOS accounts for virtually all of the rest. So it has stood for most of the past decade despite a host of failed challengers that entered the market before and after Android's debut. But one operating system is adding tens of millions of users by bringing new functionality to a device that has been all but forgotten in the U.S. KaiOS, which I first wrote about last April as an engine for minimalist phones, is an open source OS. It was spun out of an effort within TCL (owner of the Alcatel and BlackBerry phone brands) from the remnants of Firefox OS. It is well on its way to becoming the modern-day spiritual successor to Symbian, which was once a dominant operating system for feature phones. Indeed, HMD Global, the heir of the Nokia phone brand that was once Symbian's greatest champion and that claims to still be the global leader in feature phones, is using KaiOS in its 8110 "banana" slider phone. However, its biggest success to date has been India's JioPhone. Android has problems, and Google knows that and has plans to replace it with something better. But the Android name won't be going anywhere. While optimized for keypad input, it features a web browser, email client, and other essential apps. It also features an app store, although, in the world of KaiOS, carrier is king. For example, while it is an outlier, the only KaiOS phone available in the U.S. is the Alcatel Go Flip, available via prepaid carriers such as Cricket and Simple Mobile. It lacks the app store. However, while many feature phones top out at 3G and lack Wi-Fi, KaiOS's support for Wi-Fi and 4G should provide connectivity long after major carriers sunset their 3G networks in the next few years. Even as Google continues to target lower price points for Android phones, it recognizes the value it can derive from KaiOS. The company invested $22 million in the effort last year and is the preferred search engine and voice assistant for KaiOS phones. The latter aligns well particularly well with Google's push of its Assistant, the limited input options of many KaiOS phones and larger percentage of illiterate users in developing economies adopting the OS. Feature phones will likely retain a sustainable market for the foreseeable future, but KaiOS is also making a play for the Internet of Things. This is one of the many markets in which Google has struggled to expand Android's reach, recently scaling back its Android Things effort. For Google, Android Things is a developer retention play; the Android model of driving revenue through apps, content and advertising don't apply. KaiOS' carrier customers, though, can leverage IoT devices to sell managed services, particularly as they gear up parts of their 5G networks developed specifically to handle their low-power, low-speed requirements. Still, even though KaiOS devices could eventually outnumber Android devices, there are a number of caveats and reasons why it wouldn't pose much of a competitive threat. First, while the number of IoT devices could eventually outnumber the number of humans and, by extension, mobile phones, KaiOS would likely capture only a fraction of that market. And even if its raw installed base numbers came to dwarf Android's, the widely disparate needs of IoT devices would negate treating such a hardware/software combination as a viable horizontal platform in the way we think of Android or iOS. Still, as the smartwatch market has shown us, there are bound to be edge cases and KaiOS's easily navigable interface, app capabilities and modern connectivity could wind up powering many devices that would otherwise enable Android developers to leverage their skill sets.

  6. New Google Policy Means Trouble for Microsoft on Android A new policy implemented by Google for Android apps brings tighter controls for SMS and call logs, technically enforcing a new limitation of the use of services like digital assistants on the platform. According to Google itself, access for call logs and SMS should only be required when it’s absolutely necessary for the app’s core functionality, which Google defines as explained below: “Core functionality is defined as the main purpose of the app. It's the feature most prominently documented and promoted in the app’s description; no other feature is more central to the app’s functionality. If this feature isn't provided, the app is “broken” or rendered unusable (i.e., app is deprived of its primary functionality and will not perform as a user would expect).” These changes mean applications like Microsoft Launcher can now receive your permission to access calls and texts, but at the same time, to also enable Cortana to read this data.New update for Microsoft LauncherAs a result, Microsoft has recently updated Microsoft Launcher with a prompt that seeks your permission to update the device assistant, as you can no longer run Google Assistant and Cortana side by side without setting up these controls. “Due to a new policy from the Google Play Store, Microsoft Launcher needs to be set as your device assistant if you want to do things like let Cortana keep you updated on calls and texts in your feed. Once that’s done, you’ll be good for this update,” the notification reads. The message started appearing after the latest update for Microsoft Launcher, and unless you tap the option that reads “Set it up now,” it comes back occasionally to seek your permission. Obviously, Microsoft Launcher isn’t the only application that needs to comply with this new policy, so expect similar prompts from other apps on Android these days. Source

After searching and trying a lot of browsers, I came across this Chromium based browser. It's made a by a Google's Chromium developer / contributor - more details mentioned in the XDA Forum post. This browser has everything one can want, from build-in ad blocker, to disabling of crappy AMP sites to night mode to high speed with no lag - infact the developer claims it's faster than Chrome on Android. It's a must try / use and I recommend it to every Android user here.
  8. Google Testing New Chrome Feature for Faster Tab Switching on Android Google is currently testing a new feature for the Android version of Chrome browser that would make it easier and faster for users to switch from one tab to another. Basically, what Google wants to do is add a new toolbar at the bottom of the Chrome for Android screen that would just display the icons of the websites loaded in the browser. These aren’t thumbnails, but the favicons of each website, and tapping any of them instantly switches the browser to that page. This means you no longer have to open the tab view where you can jump from one website to another, but do it quickly by simply tapping the icons.Still a work in progressXDA explains that the new toolbar would also come with dedicated options to launch a mini tab switcher with a grid layout, but also with a plus symbol to add a new tab on the fly. A commit for this feature shows Google lists it as a work in progress and the development team is working on the underlying code powering it. For the time being, however, this feature is still in the works and isn’t even available for testing in the Canary version of Chrome. Most likely, Google will include it in the experimental browser at some point in the future and users will be able to try it out by enabling a dedicated flag. But as with every other experiment that Google is spotted testing, don’t hold your breath for it because the company could very well kill it off completely before launch if the development team isn’t pleased with the way it works. This the reason the Canary version of Chrome is so important for the future of the browser, as it allows Google to try out new features before they are available for everyone. Source
  9. Cortana and Microsoft Launcher updated with improvements on Android Image Courtesy: Microsoft Microsoft today has pushed out a new update for Cortana on Android. The latest update comes with a new Home Screen interface which is more colourful. Cortana for Android has been updated with a new ‘now playing’ interface to helps users control music without opening the app. New buttons have been added to the home screen to allow users to quickly access email and reminders. You can now also set a reminder on your Windows 10 PCs and Cortana will remind you that on your phone. If you are not having your phone near you and someone is trying to call you, Cortana will alert you on your PC that you have missed a call on your phone. Cortana could also send the caller a predefined text message when you are away. The section of flight status has been updated with a simpler look. Microsoft Launcher In addition to Cortana, Microsoft is also rolling out a new update to Microsoft Launcher on Android. Today’s update advances the app to version 5.2 and adds a couple of new features. For using Microsoft Launcher, the company is now rewarding the users by allowing them to earn Rewards through the daily deal card and by completing other tasks. You will be able to long press on the shortcuts enabled icons even when the home screen is locked. Users will now be able to send a CPU profile via the “Contact Us” option in Settings if they find any performance issues. The font size in the Microsoft Launcher app will now respect the font size of the system. Microsoft has also added Non-full screen folders especially for large screen devices and for users who use the device with only one hand. You can update both apps from the Google Play Store. Source

  11. Microsoft Launcher 5.2 starts rolling out to all Android users Beta testers have been using and quality-checking the 5.2 update for some time now. However today, it appears that the beta version is good enough to be released to general users, as spotted by Italian blog Aggiornamenti Lumia. The Google Play Store still lists the latest version as 5.1.1 from our end, suggesting that the update is likely being delivered to users in a gradual rollout. This would make sense, given how major bugs tend to plague devices right at a major update (remember the Windows 10 October Update debacle?), so a gradual rollout might help them keep an eye just in the small chance something does arise. For those who didn’t see the last post, version 5.2 contains a number of refinements to improve not just the aesthetics of the app, but also its functionality. Large screen phone users will likely be pleased that non-fullscreen folders (as seen in the screenshot at the top) can be toggled on for ease of use, and long pressing of app icons while the home screen is locked will now bring up the shortcuts menu. If you’re interested, you can head to the Play Store and see if the update is live for you. If it is, feel free to let us know in the comments how you’re enjoying the update. Source
  12. APK Extractor is a free application for Google's Android operating system that you may use to save installed Android apps as APK files on the device. The installation of Android applications is pretty straightforward, especially so if you install them from Google Play or another application store. It may happen that you want to save an Android APK installation file to your device for safekeeping or backup purposes. There are several potential reasons for that: making sure that you save a particular version of an application or wanting to move the installation file to other Android devices or even your PC or computer. Tip: Check out APKUpdater, it keeps your sideloaded Android apps up to date Save installed Android apps APK Extractor is available as a free and paid version. The free version comes with advertisement, the paid version removes it and is available for €1.04 currently (what is with that price?). The application uses two different ad formats: a single unit at the top of the application list, and overlay ads that tend to get in the way. The application displays all installed applications and (most?) system applications in a long list on start. You may use the built in search to find a specific Android application quickly. An option in the settings divides the applications into user-installed apps and system apps. You may switch between the two categories using the menu at the top. Saving works by tapping on the application in the interface. APK Extractor saves the Android application to the local device; the save path is highlighted when you save Android apps. You may change the save location in the settings if you prefer a different location for extracted Android applications. A long-tap on any application enables the selection mode. Use it to select multiple applications for saving in one go. There is also a handy select all option to save all applications automatically but you need to make sure that there is enough storage space on the device for that. The menu that is displayed next to each application displays the installed version and options to look up information or share it. Info opens the App Info page on the Android device that reveals required permissions, data usage, and other information. Share saves the application to the device and opens the share options afterward making it easy to share the file using messaging applications or to online storage services. Closing Words APK Extractor is a useful application for Android that lets you backup Android applications locally. The process is straightforward and not complicated at all. Inexperienced users may have difficulties accessing the saved Android apps on their devices, but that is not the fault of this application. It is easy enough to open the files manager to access the path the APK files are stored in or transfer them to another device. The overlay advertisement is annoying but since you may not use the app regularly, it is not that much of a negative.

  13. Things have been relatively silent on the Android TV front lately, but today, the platform is forcing itself back into the spotlight. Unfortunately, it’s not good news we’re hearing, but rather reports of a serious-sounding bug that’s potentially exposing the private photos of Android TV users. At the very least, the bug is causing Android TV and Google Home to show lists of Android users where they shouldn’t be, which is bad enough. The bug was first revealed by Twitter user @wothadei over the weekend. He says that when accessing his Vu Android TV through the Google Home app, he was showed an extensive list of “linked” accounts. “It basically lists what I imagine is every single person who owns this television,” he said in a tweet to Google. “This is shocking incompetence.” Things got more alarming from there. When selecting a linked Google Photos account to use with Ambient Mode slideshows, wothadei was again presented with a long list of presumed Android TV users, each of them with a toggle next their names. This, of course, suggests that you’d be able to view another user’s private photos through Android TV’s slideshows, though wothadei said later in an exchange with Google that he wasn’t able to get anyone’s Google Photos – not even his own – to show on his TV. So, at best, it seems this Android TV bug lists other users as linked accounts in the Google Home app, and at worst, it potentially exposes private photos. In a statement to XDA Developers, Google said that it takes privacy “extremely seriously” and that it has disabled this feature while it investigates reports. We’ll see where things go from here, but there are definitely a lot of questions about the scope of this bug left to answer. Stay tuned, because we’ll update you if Google serves up anymore information about this bug and what it may have potentially exposed. source
  14. Opera for Android 50 Released with Improved Ad Blocker, Picture-in-Picture Mode Opera for Android has officially reached version 50, and this new release comes with lots of improvements, including a refined ad blocker and a brand-new picture-in-picture mode. First and foremost, the new Opera version now allows users to configure special ad-blocking rules per each website. Previously, the application only came with general filters that were applied to every page you loaded, and this approach wasn’t the most convenient for users who wanted to whitelist specific websites. “This feature was implemented in our Opera browser for computers back in 2016 and today we are bringing this experience to our mobile browser,” Opera explains. “The site-specific ad blocker option is also a friendly solution for publishers to display their ads. It’s also an easy solution for users as they can switch the ad blocker on or off in two taps on the websites that they value the most.”Hello, Picture in PictureAdditionally, the Android browser now boasts the Picture in Picture mode that’s also available in the desktop version of the application, so you can technically watch YouTube videos while doing something else on your phone. PiP requires Android 8 and newer. There’s also support for dark CSS themes, as well as faster opening of PDF files and documents. The Opera team says it has also focused on improving scroll support in the Android browser. “The scroll handle also acts as the quick jump tool used in previous versions of Opera. Tap the handle when the arrow points up or down to go to the very beginning or end of a web page,” Opera says. And last but not least, the application is available in a series of new languages, including Estonian, Lithuanian, and Latvian. You can download Opera 50 for Android from this link to get all the aforementioned improvements on your phone as well. Source

  18. Google is pushing a big redesign to the mobile Gmail app on Android and iOS. The update was announced yesterday, and after spending some time with the new app, we're going to comb through the finer details and see what has changed between New Gmail and Old Gmail. For now the release is only out on Android, but like the old Gmail design, it should look identical on iOS. If you're on Android, you want Gmail version 9.x (the old design is Gmail 8). If the Play Store isn't serving you the update and you're into sideloading, APKMirror has a safe download. The iOS version is still wending its way through the App Store approval process and should be out sometime this week. The new design is a good match for the new desktop Gmail design that came out in April, along with all the other apps using the "Google Material Theme" design language. Everything is really white—an homage to the Google homepage—and everything uses rounded corners. The horizontal line dividers are gone, leaving nothing but white space to separate your messages. Control iconography is changed to Google's new outline style, and while message text remains in the Roboto font, everything else now uses Product Sans (the same typeface as the Google logo). When you first enter the inbox, it's hard to miss the death of the big red header at the top. Instead of a red action bar, the new Gmail design uses a white search bar across the top of the app. Search is certainly promoted more with this new design, but getting to it isn't any faster. When it was a magnifying glass icon on the old Gmail design, it was a tap away; with the huge search bar, it's still a tap away. The search bar does look better than the mostly blank action bar that was used before. The side navigation panel is still a tap away via the left "hamburger" button inside the search bar, or you can still swipe in from the side to open it. The one new feature in the header, then, is the new account switcher, which exists on the right side of the search bar as your profile picture. Tapping on it pops up a window with all of your other accounts. Assuming you have unique profile pictures across your accounts, the profile picture display makes it easy to tell which account you're using from the Inbox view—something that wasn't possible on the old version of Gmail. Like most other Google apps, there's no permanent "Gmail" logo on the main screen anywhere. Sometimes, though, the search bar help text will go away and a fun "Gmail" logo animation will play inside the search bar. This seems to only happen when you open the inbox, and even then it only happens once every few minutes. It's a fun little touch when you catch it happening. The floating round compose button returns to the bottom-right corner of the screen, but instead of a pen icon on a red background, it's now a multi-coloured plus icon on a white background. The pen screamed "Compose a new email," but the new plus icon seems like a less-obvious indicator. Desktop Gmail sticks a loud, obvious "Compose" text label next to the plus icon by default, which helps a lot. Like the new desktop Gmail, by default the new mobile Gmail is very upfront about attachments to your messages. Instead of the usual paper clip icon, direct links to the first few attachments will appear in the inbox, right under the message preview text. Inbox densities: Gmail's one new feature Google has a few introductory pop-ups for users opening the new Gmail for the first time. After the welcome message, you'll be presented with a setting for Gmail's single new feature: Inbox densities. Just like on the desktop version of Gmail, you can now switch between "Default," "Comfortable," and "Compact" display modes for your inbox messages. The "Default" view is the biggest and shows contact icons, a line of preview text, and a row for the new attachment buttons. "Comfortable" kills the attachment row, and "Compact" additionally removes the preview text line and contact pictures. This can make a big difference in terms of number of messages on-screen. On a OnePlus 6, you'll get about 13 messages on-screen in "Compact" mode, while "Default" mode will show six complete messages per screen if every message has attachments. The rest of the UI is pretty much what you would expect. Gmail is getting a new coat of white paint, but mostly everything is where you would expect it to be. It's kind of disappointing to still see all the controls in the same spots. Along with this new Material Design rollout, Google has experimented with templates that put all the controls at the bottom of the phone. As devices continually get bigger and taller, bottom controls seem like a really good idea. For now it's the same old Gmail, just white. And speaking of the proliferation of lightness, this new Gmail doesn't have a dark mode. Lots of other Google apps are getting a dark mode, and it's expected to be a focus of Android Q. Hopefully Gmail gets a dark mode soon. Posters note: The above images are the first in slideshows. Please visit the link below to see the other slideshow images.

  19. Chromebook Users Getting Instant Tethering in Chrome OS for Any Android Phone It would appear that Google is working on expanding its Instant Tethering feature for Chromebooks to support any Android smartphone, not only its Pixel devices. Instant Tethering in Chrome OS, the Linux-powered operating system we can find on all Chromebook computers, is designed to allow users to tether their Android phone's mobile data connection to the Chromebook computer when they don't have access to a Wi-Fi network, creating a mobile hotspot. It automatically connects your Android phone to your Chromebook, but, until today, Instant Tethering works only with Google's Pixel, Pixel XL, and Nexus series of Android smartphones, but according to Android Police, the feature recently started working with Android phones from other manufacturers, such as OnePlus and Samsung.Instant Tethering for all Android phones is coming soonOne of their readers discovered that he's OnePlus 6 smartphone notified him that the device was automatically connected to his Chromebook running Chrome OS 71.0.3578.94 Beta via the Instant Tethering feature, allowing him to turn the phone into a mobile hotspot to share the mobile data connection to his Chromebook. Another reader running Chrome OS 73.0.3669.0 Dev on his Chromebook managed to his Samsung Galaxy Note9 phablet to the Chromebook computer by activating the chrome://flags/#instant-tethering flag, adding the device to the Connected Devices settings, and then enabling Instant Tethering. For now, Google said nothing about expanding the Instant Tethering feature to other Android devices, but it looks like it's already implemented in both beta and developer channels of Chrome OS,s o you could try it with your Android phone and report if it's working or not in the comments section below. Please note that to use Instant Tethering your Android phone's mobile plan that support tethering. The latest stable Chrome OS version is now 71, so we could see the revamped Instant Tethering feature in the upcoming Chrome OS 72 release, which should be available in the coming weeks.

  20. Google has been working on a new feature for Google Chrome for Android for a while that adds options to the mobile browser to go back and forward in history by using gestures. Swipe from the left to go back in history or from the right to go forward. The main idea behind introducing gesture based navigation options is that it provides users with one-hand control over the process. Google Chrome does not display back and forward buttons on Android in the main user interface. Users may activate the back button of the Android device to go back a page, or open Menu to select the Forward button instead. One issue that arises from back button usage is that Chrome will close when you hit the back button if there is no page in history to go to. Chrome for Android does not indicate that. Google implemented gesture-based navigation of the history in Chrome Canary for Android. The feature is hidden behind an experimental flag at this point in time. Experimental means that it may find its way into Chrome at one point in time, or that it is pulled by Google again. Here is what you need to do to activate gesture-based history navigation in Chrome for Android: Make sure that Chrome Canary is up to date. Load chrome://flags in the address bar of the browser. Search for History navigation with gesture. Set the experimental flag to Enabled. Restart the Chrome browser with a tap on the Restart button. Once restarted, swipe to the left or to the right to go back or forward. Chrome displays an overlay icon that indicates the process to the user. The only option to cancel the process is to keep the finger pressed on the screen and swipe to the left or right screen border. The icon disappears when that is done and Chrome won't go back or forward in history. Google Chrome for Android supports other gestures already. Users may swipe down on a page to display the list of tabs open in the mobile browser. Source: Google Chrome for Android to support history gesture navigation (gHacks - Martin Brinkmann)

  22. Mozilla is working on a new web browser for Android to replace the currently available Firefox for Android mobile browser. Firefox users who use the browser on Android may have noticed that development slowed down in recent time. Updates are still released regularly but they address issues such as slowdowns, crashes, or security issues for the most part. The core reason for that is that Mozilla's working on Fenix, a new mobile browser for Android. Fenix is based on Android Components and GeckoView. In other words, Fenix will be powered by built-in components on Android and Mozilla's GeckoView. Note: The following is based on mockups and not the final product. Things may change during development. Mockups are useful, however, to get a first impression of a product. First Firefox Fenix for Android mockups The very first thing that Firefox for Android users may notice is that the address bar is shown at the bottom of the interface in the screenshot. The current version of Firefox for Android displays the address bar and menus at the top; Firefox Rocket / Firefox Lite, another mobile browser for Android by Mozilla, divides the interface. The mobile browser displays the address bar at the top but the menu bar at the bottom of the browser interface. Fenix moves the entire browser chrome to the bottom. Users find the address bar, home button, and menu listed there. The menu displays important options such as back, forward and reload buttons, new tab and private tab creation options, an option to switch to the desktop site, and to open the settings or the library. The Library provides access to bookmarks, downloads, the browsing history, and other features on the desktop, and it seems likely that the new Firefox for Android will provide similar functionality. Barely visible in the screenshot is another toolbar on top of the address bar. It is a quick actions toolbar to use favorites among other things. The start screen of the new mobile browser displays a unified search and address field, and the current or recent sessions. Current session lists open tabs in the browser while recent session tabs groups of tabs that were open previously in the browser. All tabs open in Fenix at the time of closing are automatically added to a new session that users may access in the future. Mozilla plans to integrate other core features into Fenix such as tracking protection or the ability to display websites offline. Closing Words Work on Fenix continues and Mozilla has not revealed yet when Fenix will become available and how the organization plans to get Firefox for Android users to migrate to the new browser.

  23. Facebook's data collecting practices have once again been called into question, after a new report revealed that it "routinely tracked" people who do not use the app. Privacy International analysed 34 apps on the Android mobile operating system with user bases of between 10 and 500 million. The charity began the study after the scandal surrounding the now defunct London based political consultancy Cambridge Analytica, which was accused of improperly obtaining personal information on behalf of political clients and using it to influence the outcome of the US 2016 presidential election or the UK Brexit referendum. Privacy International researchers found that 23 apps sent data to Facebook the moment a user opened them. Their report, which was presented at Chaos Computer Congress in Leipzig, Germany, stated: "Facebook routinely tracks users, non-users and logged-out users outside its platform through Facebook Business Tools. App developers share data with Facebook through the Facebook Software Development Kit (SDK), a set of software development tools that help developers build apps for a specific operating system." Watch more Is Facebook finished? 'We're not far from Zuckerberg subpoena' The apps included language-learning tool Duolingo, job database Indeed and flight search engine Skyscanner – all of which were tested between August and December 2018. When contacted by Privacy International, Skyscanner said it had updated its data-collecting practices in the wake of the report. "Since receiving your letter, we released an update to our app as a priority which will stop the transmission of data via the Facebook SDK," the firm told Privacy International. Facebook told Privacy International that sharing data is "common practice for many companies" and is useful for both users and the companies involved. "This information is important for helping developers understand how to improve their apps and for helping people receive relevant advertising in a privacy-protective way," Facebook said. "We do this in a transparent manner by explaining the practice through our Data Policy and Cookies Policy, and by using Google's advertising identifier, which can be controlled centrally by people using their device settings." source
  24. Attackers could craft a campaign that makes use of the device profile in order to exploit any vulnerabilities in a targeted fashion. Google has issued a partial fix for an Android issue dating back to 2015 – after originally rejecting the bug report on the grounds of the mobile OS “working as intended.” The issue – which still doesn’t have a CVE designation despite being partially addressed as a problem – has to do with how Android uses Google’s Chrome browser. Chrome is the default browser for Android devices, and it also enables the WebView and Custom Tabs APIs, which let applications render web content within the apps themselves without opening a separate browser window. According to Nightwatch Cybersecurity, Chrome and applications that use the associated APIs leak information about the hardware model, firmware version and security patch level of the device on which they are running. “This information can be used for track users and fingerprint devices,” said Nightwatch researcher Yakov Shafranovich, in a post last week. “It can also be used to determine which vulnerabilities a particular device is vulnerable to in order to target exploits.” According to Nightwatch, which discovered the problem three years ago, whenever Chrome sends a request out to a web server for a page’s content, it includes a range of HTTP headers. The User-Agent header in particular is problematic, according to the firm, because it includes the Android version number and build tag information; the latter identifies both the device name and its firmware build. “For many devices, this can be used to identify not only the device itself, but also the carrier on which it is running and from that the country,” explained Shafranovich. “It can also be used to determine which security patch level is on the device and which vulnerabilities the device is vulnerable to.” The User-Agent header is widely accessible and is often used by web servers to help identify the scope of reported interoperability problems, to work around or tailor responses to avoid particular user-agent limitations, and for analytics regarding browser or operating system use. Thus, an attacker can simply set up a malicious web site as a watering hole (or could drive traffic there via spam and social engineering), and craft a campaign that makes use of the intel coming from visiting devices in order to exploit any vulnerabilities in a targeted fashion. Google partially fixed the issue with the release of Chrome v70, after a new bug report was filed earlier in the year, but the problem overview wasn’t published by Nightwatch until after Christmas. “The fix hides the firmware information while retaining the hardware model identifier … The device model number remains,” said Shafranovich. He added, “The fix only applies to the Chrome application itself, and not to the WebView implementation used by application developers as per the following explanation [from Google]: ‘Does not apply the change to Android Web View as mandated by the Android Compatibility Definition Document.'” Users should upgrade to version 70 or later, and to fix applications that contain WebView usage, app developers should take care to manually override the User Agent configuration in their apps, according to Nightwatch. “While many are reluctant to do [the latter out of fear of losing] compatibility, we would like to suggest the approach of using the default user agent and erasing the build and model information in it,” the researcher noted.
