Google Photos Memories Feed Gets a New Look

Published

on


In the last few days, Google has been aggressively working towards redesigning its apps. In a very short time, the company introduced many new UI designs in the messages appbrowsing app, calendar, etc. Now the big thing is rolling out a new update for the Google Photos application. Let’s talk about what changes you will see.

Google has brought several UI changes to the home screen, like shifting the title “Google Photos” to the left and also bringing the Print Store, Sharing, and your account avatar to the right.

As the sharing option shifted to the upper side with the Print Store, Google has now filled the space by adding the “Memory” tab, which is positioned between photos and the library tab. Apart from this, the Memories feed has received a significant change where it improves its AI-generated scrapbook-like timeline for tablets. With this improvement, you will get a good experience in customizing and sharing your memorable trips, celebrations, and daily moments with your loved ones.

Along with this, Google has also integrated generative AI into the application, which will give suggestions about names and editing options for creating different albums from the pictures that appear in the memory feed.

All the new changes will be available with the new version 6.54. According to the information, Google has already started rolling out the update for Android users. Initially,  the update will be available in the US market, then it will be expanded globally. You can check the availability of the update easily by searching for it on the Play Store. While iOS users have to wait for more time as it is currently limited to Android users,

Google Photos is packed with a lot of features that help users manage their photos and videos in one place. Users can also do some light editing with its inbuilt editor functions. So if you are using an Android device and bored with the stock gallery application on your device, you should try Google Photos, as it runs seamlessly and supports sharing almost on all platforms.

Samsung Galaxy Devices Get Copilot Integration in Telegram

Published

Here’s a new novelty for Samsung Galaxy users to enhance their Telegram experience, as you can now access ChatGPT-powered Copilot inside Telegram. 

Undoubtedly, a new-generation AI-powered digital assistant is a hot topic in the tech industry, and with the revolutionary ChatGPT, the AI era got a boost. Now, Samsung Galaxy users can easily access Copilot inside Telegram on their Galaxy devices. This AI assistant from OpenAI powers Microsoft’s Copilot and is reported to power a few AI features in Apple’s upcoming iOS 18 update. 

Now get ready to have flawless conversations with Copilot inside Telegram, as it is announced to be your everyday AI companion. You can now ask it for movies, trip plans, how to improve your language, restaurant recommendations, and many more. On its help page, Microsoft assures that you can get sports stats, personalized music playlist recommendations, fun facts, jokes, workout tips, and trip planning through Copilot on Telegram. Noticeably, being a Microsoft product, you can access information from the web via Bing Search. 

However, here’s the limitation: Copilot on Telegram has a daily limit of 30 interactions, unlike the full Bing app. This limit is similar to Google’s introduction of limited access to its AI, Gemini, within the Message application. You can easily access Copilot inside Telegram on your Galaxy device by just following the steps mentioned below: 

  • Open Telegram on your Galaxy device. 
  • Type @CopilotOfficialBot in the search bar and tap on it. 
  • Tap the Start button. 
  • It will ask you to share your registered phone number. 
  • Select ‘Send My Mobile Number’ to get started. 
  • Now the Copilot will share a few recommendations; you can tap one of those or type something if you want your own.

Samsung Ends iFixit Collaboration, Google Picks It Up

Published

By


iFixit has already announced it will be ending its collaboration with Samsung, which allowed it to distribute official parts and create repair guides for Samsung smartphones. 

Last week, we reported that iFixit, stepping back from its collaboration with Samsung, has tried to advance the right-to-repair movement by partnering with big tech manufacturers and announced that it is ending its collaboration with Samsung. The merger allowed iFixit to distribute official parts and create repair guides for Samsung devices. However, iFixit cut off the deal, saying that Samsung’s “approach to repairability does not align with our mission.” 

iFixit is known for reliable parts and repair guides; they stopped working with Samsung, but the report suggests that the Korean giant didn’t fully support the partnership’s goal. However, at the moment, it is yet to be clear who’s primarily at fault. iFixit will not create repair guides for Samsung devices anymore. 

Despite everything, there’s an uninvolved party that is sitting pretty through all the drama, named Google. Samsung is not interested in Right to Repair, as is quite clear from the failed partnership with iFixit. However, Google partners with iFixit for parts and guides, supports Right to Repair legislation, and makes repairing Pixel phones easier. At the moment, it’s not clear how the collaboration between iFixit and Samsung fell apart. iFixit shared some of its side of the story in a blog post and a subsequent interview between the company’s CEO and one of our colleagues, The Verge. 

The reason behind the failure of the Samsung Repair Hub partnership was that Samsung made it difficult for people to fix their devices affordably; for instance, Samsung limited iFixit from selling more than 7 parts per customer in 3 months, hurting repair shops. These limitations made repairs quite expensive for consumers who didn’t have a high budget. Also, it only sold batteries pre-attached to new screens, forcing customers to buy unnecessary parts. So these are a few basic reasons behind the failure of this program.
