Microsoft is preparing to launch the Surface Duo with two screens, which will receive software adapted to this form factor. However, even users with regular smartphones can now try some of the Surface Duo's features using the new version of Microsoft Launcher. The company today released Microsoft Launcher 6.0 for all Android devices, but it's mainly targeted at the upcoming dual-screen Surface Duo.
Of course, Microsoft Launcher has been around for quite some time, and at some point was even called Arrow Launcher. However, recent developments seem to be aimed at making it more suitable for something more than a smartphone or just a tablet. Landscape mode, for example, would work for a device that is a tablet split in two.
Also recently showcased on the Surface Duo emulator was a new personalized newsbar. It's definitely good news that it won't be exclusive to this device and it can even be used on single-screen smartphones.
Of course, there are tons of other features that will work on any Android device, although a lot still depends on which version of Android you're using. For example, dark theme settings are only compatible with smartphones running Android 8.0 Oreo or higher. However, Microsoft Launcher itself is compatible with Android 7.0 Nougat.
Microsoft also notes that some Android features may not work correctly, such as displaying full-screen navigation depending on the smartphone model.
Microsoft Launcher 6.0 is due to hit app stores today, but Microsoft warns it may take time to reach all markets.

Augmented Reality (AR) sounds futuristic, but the technology has been around for years. AR is all about superimposing computer-generated images on top of your view of reality, thus creating a composite view that augments the real world.
There are various features of your camera and one of these features is the AR Shot. Although it is mostly overlooked, this is a nice way to take pictures and explore content.
This isn't new, you might not have noticed but mostly Tecno classifies these as AR Stickers, AR Emoji, or AR Graffiti (AR Graffiti allows users to add movement and variation to their graffiti without leaving a permanent mark on people's property).
This brings users a very funny interaction while taking pictures.The AR sticker covers 220+ facial features and supports identification across 120°. Light beautification and localization features are also considered. There is also a special customized version of the Manchester City Football Club stickers.
How Augmented Reality Works
Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology enriching the real world with digital information and media, such as 3D models, games, and videos, overlaying in real-time the camera view of your smartphone. In simple words, with augmented reality, the simulated parts are added on top of what's already there.
Funny enough, this feature is already employed in various apps out there. To discover more AR experiences, click here.
How To Access This Service
Simply open your Camera app,tap on the list of camera features, and select AR Shot. (Explore and have fun)
Fun Idea: What do you think about an AR Shot Photography Contest?

Google has made several of its apps from Pixel smartphones available widely in the Play Store for other Android users, but its phone/dialer app hasn’t been one of them historically. Now, some Android phones have been able to download the dialer app from the Play Store.
Spotted by XDA-Developers, a handful of devices have been able to install the Google Phone app this past week. Previously, the app was only available in the Play Store for Pixel and Nexus smartphones, but something has apparently changed recently. Some Android devices that have been able to install the Google Phone app from the Play Store include:
ASUS ZenFone 6
Oppo Find X2 Pro
LG V60 ThinQ
Weirdly, Google isn’t allowing the app to be installed on all devices, but just a select few. Digging into the app’s code, XDA was able to find that the “com.google.android.dialer.support” shared library still needs to be present on the device which is why the Phone app couldn’t be installed on a OnePlus 6T or Galaxy S20 Ultra. Still, this is notable just because, previously, the only way to use the Google Phone app on other Android devices was using root workarounds or modified apps.

To make things easier for you, we have put together a detailed guide on how to import passwords to Chrome from all major browsers like Firefox, Edge, and Opera. We have also mentioned a way to seamlessly import passwords from a CSV file.
You can import passwords to Google Chrome from multiple sources:
Import Passwords from CSV
Import Passwords from Firefox
Import Passwords from Microsoft Edge and Opera
IMPORT PASSWORDS TO CHROME FROM CSV
This method is applicable to all the browsers (mostly Chromium-based) that allow you to export passwords in a CSV file format. Keep in mind, the Password Import feature on Chrome is still under testing so Google has not enabled the feature out of the box. To access the import option, you will have to enable a Chrome Flag which will then allow you to import passwords from CSV files. Here is how to go about it.
Note: Update to the latest version of Chrome before looking for the flag. Open Chrome’s menu -> Help -> About Chrome -> Check for Updates.
1. Open chrome://flags on Chrome and search for “password import”. Now, click on the drop-down menu and enable it. Next, restart Chrome and the feature will be enabled.
2. Now, open chrome://settings/passwords and click on the 3-dot menu. Here, click on “Import“.
3. Finally, select the CSV file that has all your saved passwords and click on “Open”. You are done. All the passwords will now be moved to Chrome instantly.
IMPORT PASSWORDS TO GOOGLE CHROME FROM FIREFOX
Mozilla Firefox is not based on Chromium, but it has deep integration with Chrome. You can easily import passwords to Chrome using the native option. However, it only works if both browsers are installed on the same computer. In case, you want to import passwords saved on Firefox in one computer to Chrome installed on another computer then you will have to use a third-party offline application which creates the CSV file in one click. Here are the steps to follow.
1. If both the browsers are installed on the same computer then open Chrome’s menu and move to “Bookmarks”. Here, click on “Import bookmarks and settings”.
2. After that, select “Mozilla Firefox” from the drop-down menu and click on “Import”. Within seconds, all your passwords saved on Firefox along with other browsing data will be imported to Chrome.
3. If you are migrating to a different machine then download the FF Password Exporter from GitHub. It’s completely free and available on Windows, macOS, and Linux. Download the “portable” file for quick conversion to a CSV file.
4. Now, run the application and it will automatically detect Firefox’s user profile directory. Finally, click on “Export Passwords” and save the file as CSV. Having done that, follow the guide mentioned above on how to import passwords to Chrome from CSV file and you will be all set.
IMPORT PASSWORDS TO GOOGLE CHROME FROM MICROSOFT EDGE AND OPERA
1. Since both Microsoft Edge and Opera are based on Chromium, interoperability with Chrome is pretty good and the steps are nearly identical. You just need to open edge://settings/passwords on Edge and opera://settings/passwords on Opera. After that, click on the 3-dot menu and choose “Export”. Now, save the CSV file.
2. Next, follow the instructions that I have mentioned in the first section of this article. Finally, all your passwords saved on Edge and Opera will be imported to Chrome just like that.
3. If you are still using the legacy Edge then sadly you can’t import passwords to Chrome directly. First of all, you need to sign in with your Microsoft account on legacy Edge and then install the Chromium Edge on top of the legacy Edge. All your saved passwords on legacy Edge will automatically move to Chromium Edge. After that, you can comfortably move your passwords from step #1 of this section.
NOTE: SAFARI DOES NOT ALLOW USERS TO EXPORT PASSWORDS IN ANY WAY DUE TO ICLOUD KEYCHAIN ENCRYPTION. SO EFFECTIVELY, YOU CAN’T IMPORT PASSWORDS SAVED ON SAFARI TO CHROME.
ALL THE BEST FANS

Facebook says its researchers are developing new technology they hope will aid in ongoing efforts to make its platform’s AI have the ability to snuff out harassment. In the Web-Enabled Simulation (WES), an army of bots programmed to mimic bad human behavior are let loose in a test environment, and Facebook engineers then figure out the best countermeasures.
WES has three key aspects, Facebook researcher Mark Harman said in a statement. First, it uses machine learning to train bots to simulate real behavior of humans on Facebook. Second, WES can automate interactions of bots on a large scale, from thousands to millions. Finally, WES deploys the bots on Facebook’s actual production code base, which allows the bots to interact with each other and real content on Facebook -- but it’s kept separate from real users.
In the testing environment, known as WW, the bots take actions like trying to buy and sell forbidden items, such as guns and drugs. The bot can use Facebook like a normal person would, conducting searches and visiting pages. Engineers can then test whether the bot can bypass safeguards and violate Community Standards, according to the statement. The plan is for engineers to find patterns in the results of these tests, and use that data to test ways to make it harder for users to violate Community Standards.
Facebook has long said it’s been developing methods to thwart harassment, criminal activity, misinformation and other types of wrongdoing on the platform. At the
2018 Facebook F8 conference, Chief Technology Officer Mike Schroepfer said the company was investing heavily in artificial intelligence research and finding ways to make it work at a large scale with little to no human supervision. To Facebook’s credit, WES appears to be evidence of that.Read all >>

In the near future, you’ll be able to launch and navigate Android and iOS apps using Alexa voice commands. Today, Amazon released a bunch of new developer tools . The most interesting might be Alexa for Apps , which allows developers to add Alexa functions to their Android and iOS apps.
Amazon has tested the tool with companies like TikTok, Uber, Yellow Pages and Sonic. So already, you can ask Alexa to start your TikTok recording or open the Sonic app so you can check the menu. If you book an Uber ride through Alexa, the voice assistant will ask if you want to see the driver’s location on a map in the app.
As more developers use the tool, you’ll be able to ask Alexa to open apps, run quick searches, view more info and access key functions. This will work through the Alexa app, Alexa built-in phones or mobile accessories like Echo Buds.
This could give Alexa an advantage over other voice assistants like Siri and Google Assistant because it will allow Alexa to cross the iOS-Android divide. But as The Verge points out, it could also be more work for developers. Many apps already work with both Siri and Google Assistant, and now they’ll have to work with Alexa too.
Alexa for Apps is still in preview, and interested developers can request early access.Read all >>
