The handy Your Phone app in Windows 10 will soon give PC users the ability to control music and sound playback on their Android smartphone. The new feature, currently being tested on preview versions of the desktop operating system, places the app bar, title, source, and album art in the app. The feature will also allow users to switch between multiple sources using the dropdown in the audio player.
Microsoft claims the app works with audio services such as Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Music, Google Play Music, YouTube Music, Xiaomi Music, and Google Podcast. You will need an Android smartphone with OS version 7.0 or higher and a Windows 10 PC with October 2018 updates or later.
The Your Phone app has become a key part of Microsoft's efforts to bring mobile-to-desktop interoperability in the post-Windows Phone era. The application already makes it easier for smartphone owners to access their photos, messages and other notifications, calls, and even broadcast the smartphone screen to a PC monitor. The new feature is simply an addition to all of these capabilities.
In a blog post, the company wrote: “We are pleased to present another exciting feature that will allow you to control your music and audio applications from the Your Phone app. Now you can access and control the audio apps playing on your smartphone directly in the app, without having to split your attention between devices or disrupt your workflow. Your audio tracks will be synchronized between your smartphone and PC, and you can switch between multiple sources using the drop-down list in the player. "
Also the Preview Build 19619 update adds the Bing COVID-19 tracker to the search box. This is just in case you want news about the coronavirus.

Contra Returns, the mobile version of the iconic 90's game, may soon be getting a worldwide release, or at least a wider release as per the tweet by developers TiMi Studios. Contra Returns was originally released in China in 2017 and then in Taiwan in 2018. Then, an English version of the game was released in Southeast Asian countries later in 2018. Now, looks like the game will be getting a wider release and the developers are looking for feedback from fans of the franchise to make it “the best that it can be.”
TiMi Studios tweeted that Contra Returns has been quite successful in parts of the world that got to play it and following this success, the developers plan to have a “wider release.” The studio did not share a timeline for when the game will be released and which regions will have access to it.
Contra Returns has pretty much the same gameplay as the original game from the 90's. It has been adapted for mobile and plays like most other side-scrollers. It is currently listed as Garena Contra Returns on the Google Play store but is unavailable for download in India. TiMi Studios partnered with Garena and Tencent to release the game back in 2017 and will likely continue this partnership to bring the game to the rest of the world.
Further, the developers have asked fans to give them some feedback to help improve the game. From the survey, it seems like they want to get an idea of the market for the game and what section of people will play it and on what kind of device. This will help the developers adapt the game for its audience.
As of now, there is no release date or timeline for Contra Returns but it is possible that the “wider release” will happen within this year. TiMi Studios has developed games like the highly popular Call of Duty: Mobile, Arena of Valor, and Honor of Kings.

Hello dear t-fans, Many of us are familiar with connection sharing related to WiFi and Hotspot, but only a few know that you can do the same only through Bluetooth.
For those who may not know, tethering on Android allows you to share your mobile device's internet connection with other connected devices. Such connections can be made through wireless connectivity containing WiFi or through a physical connection (a USB cable). These possibilities have been stretched even further, enabling such via Bluetooth. To do this on your Tecno device, you must first make sure that your mobile data is activated, then go to “Settings”> “Network and Internet”> “Access point and modem”> “Bluetooth tethering” (flip the switch to the right to activate).
Now here's a tip to all of this that I noticed. In order for your device to be visible, allowing pairing with any device with which you wish to share your Internet connectivity via Bluetooth, after having carried out the above steps concerning “Share with bluetooth”, you must use the back button / back button to return to the “Settings”, then go to> “Connected devices”> “Bluetooth” so that it is visible to the other device with which you want the pairer.
Once done, all you need to do is search for your device via bluetooth from the other one you want to pair with. For successful connectivity, you need to go through the whole process by clicking on pair and connect, don't forget to leave a comment below.
And, you can also follow me on Tspot to find out more.

Researchers have discovered over 400 vulnerabilities in Qualcomm's Snapdragon chips, affecting over 1 billion Android devices. Vulnerabilities can be exploited to install malicious applications on target devices without the user's permission and steal user data, track the user's location or eavesdrop on his surroundings.
The exploits directly affect the digital signal processing function of Snapdragon processors, which is used to process video, audio, augmented reality and other multimedia functions. It is also used to control fast charging functions. Vulnerabilities allow attackers to hide malicious code from the operating system, making it irreparable. Attackers can also prevent the Android device from responding to user actions, making it difficult to make any changes and resolve the issue.
Qualcomm has been notified by Check Point Research of these vulnerabilities, dubbed Achilles. The company has not released the full technical details of these vulnerabilities, including details on which specific processors are affected by these bugs.
For its part, Qualcomm has released a fix, but it hasn't been shipped to any Android devices at the moment. Google and Qualcomm have not shared plans for when the fixes will be released to the general public. Given the number of devices prone to these errors, it won't be easy for fixes to reach all devices.
In a statement provided by Ars Technica, Qualcomm said there is no evidence yet that the vulnerabilities are being exploited by hackers. However, the company recommends that users only install apps from trusted sources such as Google Play.
However, it is important to note that Google Play does not really guarantee that the applications available on it can be trusted. Google Play has been used to distribute malicious apps to millions of users.

You are probably no stranger to those little pop-up notifications. They tell you software updates are available for your mobile device.
You might be tempted to click on that “Remind me later” button but don’t do it! Or, at least don’t put off updating your software for long.
Software updates are important to your digital safety and cybersecurity. The sooner you update, the sooner you’ll feel confident your device is more secure until the next update reminder.
Why Are Software Updates So Important?
1. Improvements in performance and stability
2. Resolve the potential problems by fixing bugs and errors
3. OS upgrade and new features experience
4. Software updates help protect your data
5. Possibly increased battery efficiency
How To Update Your Device
To update your device:
1.Click on Settings > Security and click on Security Update (you would be notified if you have an update) or
2.Click on Settings > System > System Update >Online Update > Check for Update
Note: For those with Android 10 you have the opportunity to update Google Play System as well.

Twitter has approached TikTok’s Chinese owner ByteDance to express an interest in buying its US operations, according to report.
Video-sharing platform TikTok has been at the centre of fierce debate in recent weeks and takeover talk.
Last week US Donald Trump ordered firms to stop doing business with TikTok within 45 days over security concerns
Tech giant Microsoft is the front-runner to buy TikTok but now Twitter has emerged as a possible suitor
But it remains unclear whether Twitter can afford to buy TikTok from its Chinese owners and can complete a deal within the 45-day window, according to sources quoted in the Wall Street Journal.
The value of TikTok’s US operations are unclear but estimates put it at tens of billions of dollars.
Twitter’s market capitalisation is about $29bn (£22bn), dwarfed by Microsoft’s at more than $1.6tn.
But experts believe a possible Twitter deal would face less regulatory scrutiny than Microsoft’s.
A Twitter spokesman declined to comment on a possible deal while TikTok didn’t respond immediately when contacted by the BBC.
Last Friday, Mr Trump ordered US firms to stop doing business with the Chinese app within 45 days. The Trump administration claims that the Chinese government has access to user information gathered by TikTok, which the firm has consistently denied.
In response to the US president’s executive order, TikTok has threatened legal action against the US saying it was “shocked” by the move.
The US government also unveiled a ban on Chinese-owned messaging app WeChat as tensions escalate between the two countries.
Mr Trump said last week he would support Microsoft’s efforts to buy TikTok’s US operations if the government got a “substantial portion” of the proceeds.
He has set a deadline of 15 September for the deal to be completed or the ban will go ahead.
Microsoft said it “will move quickly to pursue discussions” for TikTok’s operations in the US, Australia, Canada and New Zealand
“Even if the deal goes through, be it Microsoft or Twitter taking a substantial stake in TikTok, what remains to be seen is how both parties are going to move forward operationally,” said communications expert Sharon Koh.
“It will also take a tumultuous effort for both organisations to meander through the political sensitivities,” she added.
