Microsoft confirms Edge switch to Chromium, Windows 7, 8 and macOS support

Microsoft confirms Edge switch to Chromium, Windows 7, 8 and macOS support

Microsoft confirmed earlier rumors that it will be rebuilding Edge on the Chromium platform. It will also be bringing the browsers to more platforms, including Windows 7, 8 and macOS.
The Microsoft Edge browser currently runs on the EdgeHTML engine. The new variant, codenamed Anaheim, will be rebuilt on the Chromium platform and use the Blink rendering engine and V8 JavaScript engine. Chromium is an open source browser platform developed by Google and is the basis of Google's own Chrome as well as Opera. This makes Chromium and its Blink engine the most popular on the web due to Chrome's inherent popularity and omnipresence.
The switch is largely to take advantage of this popularity. Edge currently suffers from compatibility issues with some websites, many of which are now optimized to run properly on Chrome. By switching Edge to Chromium, Microsoft can leverage some of that popularity and jump ahead of the queue instead of being in a constant battle with web developers and changing goalposts.

The move to Chromium is largely going to be something that's only under the hood. As far as the users are concerned, nothing really is going to change on the surface (no pun intended) and Edge will continue to operate as before, just with better compatibility.
Because Chromium is open source, Microsoft will also be giving back to the community, causing other Chromium browsers such as Chrome to improve as well on Windows.
The second important part of this story is that Microsoft will also be bringing this new version of Edge to more platforms. Instead of being exclusively baked into Windows 10, Edge will now be a downloadable browser on all platforms, including Windows 7, Windows 8 and, macOS. The rationale here being making developmental work easy across all platforms but it won't hurt to increase the user base as well.
This will also mean the new version of Edge will be updated more frequently. Currently, Edge updates are tied with Windows 10 updates, which means it only gets a handful of updates throughout the year but once it's decoupled from the OS, it can be updated as often as required across all platforms.
There are no concrete launch dates for this browser yet. Betas may start showing up early next year but we may be a year or so from release.

WhatsApp New Updates: Consecutive Voice Messages and Group Call Shortcut

WhatsApp New Updates: Consecutive Voice Messages and Group Call Shortcut

WhatsApp has been trying it's best in pushing out a huge update to its billions of users this year. The popular instant chat messenger has been spotted testing two new features lately — Consecutive Voice Messages and Group Call Shortcut.

Consecutive Voice Messages
As the name suggests, the new voice messages allow to continuously play consecutive voice messages. All you will have to do is to tap on the play button and WhatsApp will play all the voice messages in a row for you. This feature was spotted on WhatsApp beta for iOS (v 2.18.100) and is only present in the code of Android Beta version (v 2.18.362) which is likely to be enabled remotely.

The feature will start to work when two (or more) voice messages are detected by WhatsApp. When you start to play the first one, WhatsApp will automatically play all other consecutive voice messages as a sequence so it won’t be necessary to press play on each message.

Group Call Shortcut
Since the group video and audio calling feature was introduced on WhatsApp, the only way to make group calls has been by calling a user first and then tapping on the group calling button on the call screen in the top right corner.

WhatsApp will soon change this behavior by introducing a standalone button for making group calls, but only in group chats. Simply tap on the button, select the friends you wish to call and then select if it will be voice or video call. This feature also showed up only in the iOS beta version of the app (v2.18.363).

WhatsApp has been testing several new features lately, like the picture-in-picture mode, private reply, dark mode, and WhatsApp stickers. You can try them out via WhatsApp Beta which allows early access to the latest features in testing.

To become a beta tester, you need to be a part of the Official Google Play Beta Programme.
NB: WhatsApp beta is known for having bugs and crashes, so be aware of what you’re getting into. You can always opt out of beta by going to the same link.
Samsung and Niantic reportedly working on a Harry Potter game

Samsung and Niantic reportedly working on a Harry Potter game

Samsung scored a timed exclusivity on Fortnite and plans to continue featuring games as a marketing tactic. The smartphone giant is reportedly close to investing $40 million in Niantic, the maker of the highly popular Pokemon Golocation-based game. But Niantic wouldn’t share Pokemon.
Instead, a Harry Potter game is planned, which will turn the S Pen into a magic wand. It’s not clear if this will be an addition to Harry Potter: Wizards Unite (set to release in 2019) or a separate title. Reworking the existing game may the only way if Samsung wants it in time for the Galaxy Note10 (the Galaxy S10 will launch first, but it lacks the “wand”).
Niantic’s original game, Ingress, will also be part of the deal. Speaking of, the deal may be announced before the end of this year, though it sounds like neither company is in a hurry – insiders report that they want to see a bit more progress in the technical collaboration before making an official announcement.
Samsung Galaxy S10+ beats the Mate 20 Pro on AnTuTu

Samsung Galaxy S10+ beats the Mate 20 Pro on AnTuTu

A Samsung Galaxy S10+ version has surfaced on AnTuTu showing a snippet of its main specs and topping the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and its 7nm Kirin 980 chipset.
According to the specs, the SM-G975F - likely to be called Galaxy S10+ - has a 6.4-inch display of 2280x1080px resolution (likely due to the software being set to a lower resolution), runs Android 9, is powered by an 8nm Exynos 9820 chipset  with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of on-board storage. It posted an amazing benchmark score of 325,076.

The posted result beats the official AnTuTu score of the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro but falls short of the result captured by the Snapdragon 8150 platform. 
The Galaxy S10+ reportedly clocked as high as 2.7GHz during its run. The Exynos 9820 packs two Samsung-developed Exynos M4 cores, two Cortex-A75 and two Cortext-A55 cores.
Samsung Galaxy S10+ on AnTuTu
Analysts predict that there's an even more powerful Galaxy S10 with 12GB of RAM in the making, one with a larger 6.7-inch screen. If we go by the Galaxy Note9, we expect at least one Galaxy S10 model to pack 8GB of RAM or even more.
