Google Chrome is getting way better tab management soon

Sep 20, 2019 - 2:59 PM - by Reverend
If you’re a Chrome user who likes to have 50 tabs open at a time, Google is making things way easier soon. Tab management in Chrome currently requires you to hover over each tab and wait for a description of the tab or to simply spot one visually via the tiny favicon. This can be difficult when you’ve got a lot of tabs open, so Google is addressing it with a new preview that will allow you to hover over tabs quickly to get to the right one.

Other browsers have been managing this better for years, including Microsoft Edge and Apple’s Safari, but it’s good to see Chrome getting some improvements. At first, it will be limited to just previews of the page titles, but Google promises Chrome will support a full thumbnail of the tab soon.

Alongside the tab changes, Google is also planning to tweak the Chrome address bar to show results faster. You’ll get instant answers for queries about weather, translations, sports events, and more. Google is also adding in more color customizations for Chrome themes. A new tool will let you change the color of the entire browser and the new tab page, all without having to install Chrome themes from the Chrome web store.

It’s not clear exactly when all of these changes will be available, but Google says they’re rolling out “later in the fall.”

Minecraft Is Getting a Character Creator

Sep 20, 2019 - 2:56 PM - by Reverend
Minecraft is introducing an in-game character creator that lets players customize their avatar's hairstyle, skin colour, and body shape.

As announced in the Minecraft Beta's patch notes, there'll be over 100 free customization items alongside extra accessories created by the development team available for purchase.

The creator appears to be fairly detailed, with the notes promising options to design "body size and shape, limb replacement and tweaking of eyes, mouth, hairstyles and colours, facial hair and skin tones."

Previously, custom skins created outside the game and imported in were the only way to personalise your avatar. That approach is still allowed in a "Classic Skins Tab" where players can upload them in the same way they did before.

Character creation will eventually roll out to Minecraft Earth, iOS, and Nintendo Switch, but for now it's only available in the Beta on Xbox One, Windows 10, and Android.

You can finally hide replies to your tweets -- at least for now

Sep 20, 2019 - 9:54 AM - by Reverend
You can now hide all those obnoxious trolls and reply guys on Twitter. The social media platform today announced a test of its controversial "hide replies" feature in the US and Japan. Rather than deleting offensive or unwanted replies forever, the new option lets users individually hide them. Users will be able to hide replies on both the app and desktop versions of the site. Last summer, Twitter ran a test of the same feature in Canada.

Twitter said the ability to hide tweets would give users "more control" over their conversations. Critics of the move argue that such a feature would allow users to silence dissenting voices. But the platform believes that visibility of the hidden replies -- as well as the fact that anyone can view them -- will prevent it from becoming a proxy for censorship.

The platform's test of the tool in Canada has been encouraging. Users mostly hid replies that were irrelevant, abusive or intelligible. More than a quarter -- 27 percent -- of users who had their replies hidden said they would think about their actions in the future.

The "hide replies" feature isn't permanent. Based on the trial's outcome in the US and Japan, Twitter could decide to axe the feature.

Amazon Launches Amazon Music HD

Sep 20, 2019 - 9:51 AM - by Reverend
Amazon launched a high definition tier of its Amazon Music Unlimited streaming platform. Amazon Music HD offers 50 million songs in a lossless audio format.

Amazon Music HD also features a catalog of “millions” of Ultra HD lossless tracks. The High Definition catalog is defined as up to 850 kbps at 16 bit/44.1kHz. The Ultra HD collection contains tracks up to 3730 kbps at 24 bit/192kHz and can be listened to in high-res

“We spoke with many artists while developing Amazon Music HD, who were excited about the potential for fans to be able to stream their favorite music, and hear it as it was originally recorded,” said Steve Boom, VP of Amazon Music. “From rock to hip-hop to classical and pop, we believe listening to music at this level of sound will make customers fall in love again with their favorite music and artists. As we usher in a new listening experience for our customers and the industry, we’re combining the convenience of streaming with all of the emotion, power, clarity and nuance of the original recordings.”

Amazon Music HD is available for $14.99 per month and $12.99 per month for Amazon Prime members. Current Amazon Music Unlimited individual and family plan subscribers can add Amazon Music HD for an additional $5 per month.

Longtime proponent of lossless digital audio and creator of the defunct Pono portable player, Neil Young is a supporter of Amazon Music HD. The veteran rocker stated:

“Earth will be changed forever when Amazon introduces high-quality streaming to the masses. This will be the biggest thing to happen in music since the introduction of digital audio 40 years ago.”

Google Maps is testing its incognito mode with some users now

Sep 20, 2019 - 9:47 AM - by Reverend
Announced back at Google I/O, some users are now getting early access to an incognito mode for Google Maps on Android that hides your data when you don’t want it stored.

Some Google Maps users have been sent emails in the past 48 hours or so that invite them to join in on the incognito beta for Google Maps. This enables the incognito toggle in the Android app immediately, and once activated, the app relaunches with none of the searches, location data, or other activity in the app stored on your Google account.

When incognito mode is turned on in Google Maps, a black banner appears at the top of the interface that clearly indicates that the mode is turned on. As noted by a GIF shared by XDA, the usual blue location indicator also turns to a dark gray color. The folks over at Android Police also have an image that shows that this mode also translates over to Android Auto as well.

Unfortunately, there’s no indication as to when Google Maps incognito mode will fully roll out to users. Right now, the functionality is only available in this closed beta program.
