Incognito mode added to Google App for iOS: Maps, YouTube soon

Published

on

Google’s spreading the Incognito Mode experience across more apps than just Chrome in the near future. Today’s expansion is for the Google App (aka the Google Search app) for iOS devices. The Google App for your iPhone or iPad now has an Incognito mode via your profile picture. Just press that picture and hold it down for a little bit – it’ll give you a fancy set of glasses and mysterious hat, just like a real incognito individual!

If you’re in the latest version of the Google App for iOS, long-press your profile picture. You’ll need to be logged in to your Google account in order for this feature to work. Once you long-press the icon, you’ll turn on Incognito mode. Look a this process – it’s pretty simple. If you’ve got the latest version of the Google App for iOS, this should work real slick.

Once Incognito Mode is on, Google will no longer add your searches or browsing history to your collected Google user data. If you do this, you won’t necessarily be private in every aspect of your smartphone experience. It’s just Google that won’t add your search terms to your Google account user data.

Everything outside of the Google App will still be handled the same way as it was without long-pressing the icon. This system works for the iOS version of the Google App as of the latest update, here on the 24th of June, 2020, and it’ll soon work on other Google apps.

The next Google apps that are scheduled to get this long-press Incognito Mode feature are Google Maps (expanded, easier) and YouTube. These apps do not (yet) have this feature integrated on any platform. It’s likely we’ll see the long-press Incognito Mode added to the Google App for Android devices before we see the update for Google Maps and/or YouTube for iOS or Android – but we shall see!

Motorola Moto X30 Pro Will Have An Unusual Camera System

Published

on

This is just the tip of the iceberg for the Moto X30 Pro. The strangest thing about the model won’t be its unusually large camera sensor, especially since Xiaomi already claimed that crown. Instead, it will be the use of three focal lengths in the camera system that could mean the removal of one traditional part of that group.

Motorola’s Weibo account revealed that the Moto X30 Pro will have a 35mm focal point at its widest. This will be joined by a 50mm telephoto that could have a 2x magnification, as well as an 80mm longer telephoto option. If this is an accurate description, it would suggest that the phone will ditch the ultra-wide shooter in favor of two telephoto cameras when some of its peers opt to eschew telephoto cameras to make way for a macro alternative.

Whether this will give the Moto X30 Pro an actual advantage over other high-end phones this year remains to be seen, literally. It sounds almost like a mixed bag, at least in the camera department, though the rest of the rumored specs are on par for a 2022 flagship. The Moto X30 Pro, which could go by the name Motorola Frontier in global markets, is expected to run on a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, bear a 6.67-inch 144Hz OLED screen, and boast 125W super-fast charging for its modest 4,500mAh battery.

How To Fix Amazon Prime Video Not Streaming In 4K

Published

on

Not all Amazon Prime Video titles are available in 4K quality. Older movies and shows often do not support that format, and even some newer flicks will still be unavailable for a variety of reasons ranging from licensing to technical difficulties. As a result, your title of choice might look less-than-perfect, not due to a fault on Amazon’s end, but simply because that title may not support 4K in the first place. 

Amazon has a list of titles available in 4K, so checking whether the one you’re trying to watch is, is fairly easy. You can see all the 4K offerings by heading over to the official Amazon website. The list is not very intuitive in the sense that you can’t check for specifics within the results as this is already a narrowed-down list. However, you can also simply type in the title of your movie or show into the search bar above to check whether it’s available on Prime Video and in 4K.

You can also search directly on Amazon Prime Video. Any variation of “4K,” “4K movies ultra HD,” “4K film,” or even something more specific like “4K romantic comedies” should produce a list of titles that you can watch right now. If you managed to locate your title on one of these lists and yet it still looks underwhelming, there may be other issues at hand.
