Android 15 Set to Introduce Enhanced Desktop Mode Features

📰1 month ago60 viewsVideo

Google is reportedly working on a significantly improved desktop mode that is expected to debut in Android 15. This development comes as a part of Google’s continuous efforts to enhance the Android experience for its users.


When most people think of desktop mode on Android, they often think of Samsung’s DeX or Motorola’s Ready For platforms. These are indeed among the most advanced custom implementations currently available. However, a lesser-known fact is that there is a Desktop mode in Google’s Android Open Source Project (AOSP).


The concept of a desktop mode on Android isn’t new. It was first introduced with Android 10 back in 2019, not for the average user, but primarily for developers who needed to test how their apps behaved in multi-display scenarios. Since then, Google has been steadily improving this feature, albeit slowly.

Over the years, Desktop mode has seen considerable progress. As of Android 14 QPR3 Beta 2.1, the mode supports features like drag-and-drop, window resizing, and running multiple apps simultaneously. It can now easily handle a side-by-side mode with two apps on screen. More apps can be opened simultan...

Let's take a closer look at some of the top search engines available today:

Google Rolls Out Visual Redesign and Layout Changes for YouTube Music Web App

📰11 months ago362 views

Google seems to be making changes to the visual design and layout of YouTube Music, aiming to align it more closely with the overall YouTube service. Currently, YouTube Music has a layout with various categories such as Home, Explore, Library, and Search located at the top of the page.

However, Google is implementing significant changes to the YouTube Music layout in certain areas. The most notable change is the introduction of a left-hand navigation menu, shifting Home, Explore, and Library to the left side of the app. Users can now access playlists and create new ones more easily. Another significant alteration is the search functionality, which now features a search bar at the top, replacing the previous button. The music categories have also been relocated to the top left, resembling the layout of the YouTube app.

It's worth mentioning that this layout change appears to be part of a controlled rollout and may not be visible to all users. Some regions might already experience the new design, while others are still awaiting its arrival. The goal behind this transformation is to create a more unified look and feel between YouTube and YouTube Music.

Why Google is still the best search engine

📰3 years ago503 views

There been many new search engines lately and some people seem to hate Google because of privacy concerns.
Honestly, it is not something to worry about, you can disable search history and other stuff in your account settings.

I have tried many but in my opinion nothing comes close to good old Google.
Google somehow manages to give more useful results than any other search engine I tried.

Also, it is more than just a search engine actually, it provides many cool features that others don't.
For example:
• Search by image.
• Search by voice.
• Search for a song - Shazam alternative (Requires Google app).
• Check your IP right in search without opening any site.
• Convert currencies using search.
• Calculate using search.
There is probably more:)
