Diablo Immortal will be released on June 2, 2022

There are just a few days left until the official launch of Diablo Immortal, the mobile spin-off of Blizzard Entertainment’s iconic dungeon crawler. The action RPG, also released on PC, offers a brand new setting and a brand new story, as well as six different classes with which to venture into the world of Sanctuary. Ahead of the upcoming global debut, the development team has shared all the details related to the release on iOS, Android and Windows.

“Skarn, Lord of Damnation, has amassed his warmongering forces in anticipation of your imminent arrival at Sanctuary. With an ashen look and horrible frown, the demon lord murmurs … ‘We are waiting for you.'” Thus Diablo Immortal welcomes the wanderers of Sanctuarium, the heroes destined to thwart the nefarious plans of Skarn.

The launch of Diablo Immortal is set for June 2 at 19.00 (Italian time) for iOS and Android. Some players, Blizzard explains, will see the title available in the App Store and Google Play on the morning of June 1 – a discrepancy that “is partly due to how mobile games are released” and which serves “to ensure smooth delivery. complete for the mobile version of Immortal “. To find out when you can download in your region, you can consult the table shared a few hours ago by Blizzard itself.

Also from 2 June it will be possible to access the PC version of Diablo Immortal, available in open beta: it is already possible to pre-load via Battle.net. We remind you that to access Immortal on PC it is necessary to have installed the Battle.net application and to log in with an existing account. On Android and iOS, however, simply download the game from the related digital stores, click on the Install button and let the download complete.

In the post published on the Blizzard Entertainment blog, it is possible to consult a series of FAQs that clarify all the possible doubts related to the launch of the game on mobile and PC.

WhatsApp, the ‘Edit’ option for invitation messages is coming

WhatsApp is working on various features to improve the user experience and get back in parallel with the services of the competition. And, among the improvements in the pipeline, there is one that probably will be very welcome to users: the possibility (finally) to modify messages, perhaps containing errors.

WhatsApp, the ability to edit messages is finally being developed

The news has just been reported by the prolific WABetaInfo, and it should be in the future (we don’t know exactly when) in WhatsApp’s Android, iOS and desktop clients. Font wrote that the development team is “working on a new option that will consent to edit text messages” and that “there probably won’t be a history of changes to check for previous post changes”.

WhatsApp, the ability to edit messages is finally being developed
To date, WhatsApp does not agree to change the messages received in any way. The only weapon available to the user to correct a typo or a spelling mistake is to delete the message (an operation that still keeps a warning on the chat) and rewrite it from scratch. With the change option, the procedure will be much more streamlined and linear, as is already the case with other statutory message services with which the Meta app can compete directly.

WABetaInfo also showed a screenshot of the new modifier key, but did not mention a period within which it will be opportune to see the new feature arrive on the stable versions of the client. Furthermore, WhatsApp has never confirmed the arrival of the option which – although very unlikely – could be eliminated from the company’s plans if the tests do not bring the desired results.

Zuckerberg’s messaging client may add more news in the near future, such as a feature that allows users to “silently” exit groups, with the warning only appearing to group admins. There will also be premium subscription plans for the business version of the application, which will offer the ability to use the same account for up to 10 users.

WhatsApp will release a function to create surveys within groups

WhatsApp is working to allow users to insert surveys within groups: this is what emerges from the latest beta for iOS analyzed by WABetaInfo. The ability to create surveys, rumor already circulated previously, has been confirmed by the presence of screens in the latest beta that show the creation process, with the possibility of asking a question and setting the default answers that the members of the group will be able to answer.

Surveys will be available only in groups and protected by end-to-end encryption: in other words, only users who participate in the group will be able to see the contents of the survey and the results. It is not known, however, when WhatsApp plans to enable this feature for the final version of the app.

Among the other innovations there would also be a tab called “community” which allows users to collect groups and communities for the purpose of better traceability. From the information available, it appears that the “community” card will replace the currently existing “room” card, taking its place.

The polls function will be very similar to what is already available in Telegram, which has already launched the possibility of creating polls within groups since 2018.

The ‘cover photos’ are coming to WhatsApp

There are several features coming to WhatsApp, and among them the development team is working on the cover photos. The “cover photos”, so we could translate them into Italian, will be used to enrich the profile of WhatsApp Business accounts in order to be more recognizable. Together with the “collections”, that is the new method for managing the Catalog, the novelty is designed to put users in contact with companies more and more so that the latter can offer a better support service via chat.

The team behind the messaging app is working to make it possible to configure a cover photo in WhatsApp Business company profiles, a feature that currently seems not to be provided for standard accounts. At the moment it is only present on some selected accounts of users who have decided to participate in the beta program, so not all participants can try it today on their devices. When enabled on your Business profile, the cover photo will be displayed behind the profile photo, and the ability to edit it.

The manager of the WhatsApp Business account can modify the cover photo, through a key represented by a stylized camera: the admin can select an already present photo or take a new one with the camera of the device in use. Once chosen, it will appear on the profile page of the account, along with the traditional profile photo that can also be entered today. The cover photo will be visible to all users who visit the WhatsApp Business account profile, both on iPhone and on any Android device.

As usual, the novelty has been spotted by the prolific WABetaInfo, which, however, does not have information regarding the timing of the release of the novelty. The cover photo is currently under development, and the company has not yet released official information on the matter. Like every feature under test (for example the Reactions on WhatsApp we talked about recently), developers could decide to delete it, without ever presenting it on the stable client for end users.

DuckDuckGo introduces a new tool to its browser to prevent apps from leaving traces on the internet

Most people use google chrome or firefox to browse the internet.
Although firefox is one of the best browsers (for computers and smartphones) there is an even better one (but only for smartphones) from the point of view of privacy: duckduckgo.
Maybe not everyone knows it but duckduckgo is also an alternative search engine to google.
As a search engine I don’t think it is up to par as many search results are not as relevant as google (or bing) but as a search engine it is unsurpassed.

A new tool from DuckDuckGo tries to prevent Android apps from tracking and tracking user data. It’s called App Tracking Protection, and it’s meant to offer greater protection from third-party trackers even over Apple’s App Tracking Transparency feature, introduced starting with iOS 14.5, which allows users to disable app tracking.

The news was reported by the same development team, which explains that the tool was not released as an update, nor as a dedicated app. Those who request to try the new anti-tracking tool must download the DuckDuckGo Privacy Browser from the Play Store and enable the feature. The Tracking Protection App will then work at the system level, and not just on the browser, preventing the tracking of data by third-party apps among those installed on the device.

Telegram breaks another record! It has been downloaded and installed on smartphones more than a billion times

Telegram has reached a new record and this time it has done so in the Android platform and in its PlayStore that is the virtual store where all users can download applications. In this case that the application has passed for the first time a milestone that few other applications have reached this Russian during their life and we are talking about the download record on the Google PlayStore.

As reported directly on the Google PlayStore card, Telegram has been downloaded and installed on smartphones for more than a billion times. A staggering figure that few other applications have ever reached in the history of Android and which has certainly also been allowed by the latest downs of Facebook and WhatsApp.

But that’s not the only reason: Telegram over the years has been a shovel of many that no one had been able to formulate messaging in a simple application now. And if everyone has their preferences for the messaging system, it is clear that the functionalities that observe Telegram have not passed, indeed they are precisely those that have resulted in the success that the app has today. We speak clearly of the possibility of creating channels where to send messages to real communities of users, use stickers, customized or even created directly on the portal and then a user friendly aspect that over the years has improved in usability allowing anyone to use chats in fast and safe way.

And we remember, a story of a few weeks ago, as just with the down of Facebook and WhatsApp, Telegram has managed in a few hours to obtain the beauty of over 70 million new users. In short, a success that has no limits, just like the features that the app has and that are coming in the future.

Android, ‘billions’ of more secure devices within a few months: here’s how Google will do it

Google has announced a very important change regarding the privacy protection of users who are still using devices that are no longer supported by Nino Grasso published on 20 September 2021, at 11:31 am in the Telephony channel GoogleAndroid Google recently announced that it will implement a new privacy protection feature not only on the latest terminals, but also on older devices that are no longer supported. The feature, which will be integrated on “billions of devices” by the end of the year, allows you to automatically restore the permissions of apps that have not been used for months. In this way, the apps installed on smartphones and tablets will no longer have permission to access sensitive device functions (microphones, storage units, geolocation and much more) unless the user chooses to reactivate the permissions following the request. of the same app. The novelty will be implemented on all devices with Android 6.0 (API level 23) or later, and which have Google Play Services installed, up to devices with Android 10 (API level 29). Google explained that “starting from December 2021 the feature will be expanded to billions of devices”, and that it will be “automatically enabled” on all eligible models based on the specifications we have reported above. On these devices, users will be able to access the new settings on automatic permissions reset and enable or disable the feature on the basis of each individual app: “The system will automatically begin to reset the permissions of apps that are no longer used a few weeks after the feature is launched on the device “, explains Big G. Automatic reset of permissions on Android apps, what you need to know The automatic restoration of permissions on Android will be enabled automatically starting in December, with the distribution of the news that will go on until the first quarter of 2022 and should be completed by the second quarter. The new APIs of the “auto-reset” function have already been released to developers in Beta for a few days, and will be proposed – according to current plans – in a “stable” version starting from October. The automatic restoration of permissions on older devices is certainly a welcome change to improve the security of an obsolete device that could contain sensitive data in a minimally invasive way. Google is increasingly trying to tackle the problem – one of the oldest – of its mobile operating system, and in July it had begun to warn users of devices with Gingerbread and below (2.3.7) that they would no longer have access to their own. Google account. Android is now installed on over 3 billion devices around the world, at least based on data released by Google itself during the last Google I / O conference. Securing all Android 6 smartphones, which was released in late 2015, and later, may seem like an impossible task to complete, especially considering that older models are probably no longer supported by their respective manufacturers for some time. Google’s latest move is to eliminate security problems with these devices, or at least reduce them as much as possible.

ap_resize

WhatsApp will introduce fingerprint authentication to block access to content to unauthorized persons.

The WhatsApp Beta Info site has found how the beta version 2.19.221 supports the new feature but it is necessary to reinstall the application if it is not shown. If it is visible, you will have to wait before you can use it.

To activate this feature you will need to go to: settings -> account -> privacy. Among the options that will be available in WhatsApp there will be the choice to block the app immediately, after 1 minute or 30 minutes. Furthermore it will be possible to choose whether or not to show information in notifications.

It is not clear when fingerprint unlocking will arrive officially and for everyone on Android. The latest information in this regard dates back to January 2019, but now we are very near to the release date of the whatsapp version for all users. The only condition is to have a fingerprint reader on the smartphone.
