The Mountain View company is close to launching the new Google Pixel 4a. For several months, some of its specifications have been leaked online. Now a new rumor reveals the price of the device, revealing all the details.

According to 9to5Google, the possible price of the new Google Pixel 4a seems to be a little lower than the cost of its previous version, the Google Pixel 3a. That has the specifications of 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

Rumors indicate that this new Google Pixel 4a could have a price of $349 in the US. This would be the price of the model with 4GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. It would mean a $50 decrease in price than that of the Pixel 3a, which costs $399. The Pixel 4a, with its cut in price, could give the new iPhone SE 2020 a run for its money.

Google Meet in India now supports noise cancelling feature

Published

By

Google Meet users in India are getting a new feature this week. The popular video conferencing platform now supports noise cancellation feature in the country. Using this feature, people will be able to reduce background noise while attending video or audio calls on Google Meet.

The feature made its global debut in April, and now users in India can enjoy its benefits. It works on Meet web version for now, and mobile users will get very soon. Google says the noise cancellation feature is rolling out to Australia, Brazil, Japan and India in the coming weeks. You can enable the new feature by heading to Settings, Audio on Google Meet and turn on noise cancellation.

The other popular video conferencing platform to support the feature is Zoom. With Zoom, the noise cancellation works when users are not speaking, canceling out unnecessary ambient noise. However, Meet’s feature works regardless of whether you are speaking or not. So when you are talking, the sound of a dog barking or even you slamming away on your keyboard can be cancelled out.

Noise cancellation is usually associated with headphones or other audio gear. And with video calling now the preferred mode of communication, changes are welcome.

Google Meet free for everyone

Google had announced that its premium group video calling app – Google Meet – is free for everyone. The platform currently hosts 3 billion minutes of video meetings and is adding roughly 3 million new users everyday. The company rolled out the free availability of the Meet app globally, including India. And if you use Gmail or Google Calendar, you’ll be able to easily start or join from there as well.

In addition to this, since early May, anyone with an email address is able to sign up for Meet and enjoy many of the same features available to business and education users. List of some of these features include scheduling and screen sharing, real-time captions, and layouts that adapt to your preference, including an expanded tiled view, added Google in its blog.

Ethical hacker claims DuckDuckGo tracks user data history

Published

DuckDuckGo is one of the best alternatives to Google. This American search engine claims to be safer than Google by not saving personal information or sharing it with third parties. They also don’t use tracking to display personalized ads. However, the search engine is now caught to track the visits made by the user.

Ethical hacker Cowreth revealed through GitHub how the DuckDuckGo browser could be accessing user history without their consent. According to @cowreth, the browser filtered users’ browsing information to their servers through the favicon. This failure occurs in the mobile version of DuckDuckGo for Android.

DuckDuckGo Android app privacy failure

The failure is that the DuckDuckGo application for Android collects all the domain information that the user visits. When we visit a website, the website calls its own server or checks the computer’s local user cache to download the favicon. Showing on the user’s screen either of the two, which is being more recent.

However, in the Android app, instead of requesting the favicon through the visited website or the local cache of the browser, it makes a call to its own server. With this, it transfers the user’s browsing history to their servers without having permission to do so. In July last year, the company said that this behavior was normal. “We should trust them because they do not collect or share personal information, as it is in their privacy policy.”

The problem is that none of this is a convincing reason to store the data of the websites that users visit in a service other than the local cache of the browser. With the data, the app can organize user profiles based on their preferences. Moreover, they can also find out the IP addresses from which those pages are visited.
