Spotify is testing a new interface on Android with less tabs and a cleaner design

Spotify’s Android app has a design which is clearly ripped from the iOS version, but that’s not really a bad thing. However, it would be nice if the company took the time to adjust its design a bit to better suit the platform it’s on. Now, it seems Spotify might be doing just that with a redesign that is being tested.

The best gifts for Android users

A Google+ user (via Android Police) was recently given a brand new look to their Spotify application on Android, and it includes some pretty interesting changes. The first being the return of the new “now playing” screen which we’ve seen in A/B tests a couple of times in the past. This UI rearranges some buttons and gives them a new look, but it’s biggest change is the full-screen album art which looks fantastic. This part also screams Material Design to me, which is a plus for the Android app.

Other elements of the UI have also changed in big ways on this new design. The bottom bar now only holds three tabs for “Your Playlists,” “Home,” and “Search.” This eliminates a lot of the unused elements Spotify’s app currently has, “Radio” in particular.

The “Search” screen also has a welcome redesign that gets rid of the under-used space that was previously there. It does this by moving the search bar and adding search filters below that for various genres and moods. Presumably, this is auto-populated based on your listening history.

The “Playlists” screen also gets a new look and location. Rather than being buried under the “Library” tab, it has its own tab which lists out your various playlists. The new look for this tab is certainly cleaner, but at a glance, I don’t appreciate that it shows fewer playlists on a single tab.

There are several other changes hidden within this interface, such as a new “Your Likes” section and various other UI changes. However, we can’t dig into it too much without trying the interface out for ourselves. Currently, it seems as though this is a server-side switch, so it’ll be hit or miss on if you have it or not.

AT&T testing internet delivery via power lines

f32a6_ATT-Project-AirGig-3-840x473 AT&T testing internet delivery via power lines ATT

ATT announced today that it has launched a first-of-its-kind internet distribution service using power lines. The trial is running now in a small area in the state of Georgia.

Going by the moniker AirGig, this new technology will use millimeter wave signal, abbreviated as “mmWave.” Since mmWave has a much wider band of transmission than what is possible with traditional phone and fiber lines, AirGig could potentially deliver internet speeds at a faster rate than the current American industry maximum of 1 gigabit per second (Tokyo gets twice that).

Because power lines are used to distribute the signal, there would be no need to create new infrastructure to deliver faster internet speeds to existing customers. And customers who are currently without high-speed internet due to being in a remote or sparsely-populated area could get connected easily and quickly.

According to ATT, connecting a building using AirGig technology could be performed by a trained worker in just a few minutes.

Here are the best ATT plans

Georgia’s Governor welcomed ATT’s testing of the technology in his state, and emphasized the potential of all Georgia citizens benefitting if a commercial rollout is confirmed. Georgia is actually the second trial area for the technology, the first being an undisclosed international location. However, there is currently no timeline for a commercial rollout, and ATT did not announce any other future trial locations.

The major roadblock to AirGig becoming a success would be the dependency on building relationships with each power company running across the U.S. Striking deals with over 1,000 energy companies to use their lines would be a monumental task, most likely fraught with negotiating deadlocks and political troubles.

ATT is not exactly world-renown as being a consumer-friendly company. But with how important the internet has become for daily life, the concept of having an easy and cheap way to get every American connected with high-speed access is indeed worth pursuing.

Spotify is testing a new three-tab interface, simpler list layouts, and other visual changes

Spotify’s been doing incremental tweaks to its Android UI for a long time. Since I’ve been working here at AP, it seems like we get at least a tip or two a month related to one minor change or another. That means the company’s server-side A/B changes are pretty well known to us as a result of our position in the grapevine. Recently we’ve been getting reports of a UI test that includes a new consolidated three-tab navigation, simpler list views, larger interface elements, and the return of an old UI test. 

These changes appear to be server-side, as is usual for Spotify. We’ve updated some of our devices to the latest beta, and we still aren’t seeing them. Spotify’s also been known to do these sort of A/B tests for a long time before rolling out changes to larger groups, and sometimes these tests don’t go anywhere. So if you don’t like these changes, you might not have anything to worry about. Think of this as one potential future.

Now Playing screen in new UI (left), and currently (right)

Some of these changes have been rolling around for a long time. Spotify is well known for doing extensive A/B tests when it starts tweaking interface elements, and the new Now Playing screen that’s being reported is one of those things. We’ve been receiving reports for variations on this layout change for a long time, and we first reported on it back in January. If you’d like to check it out for yourself, it looks like you can manually force it to appear via songs in the Your Time Capsule playlist (Home – Made for You – Your Time Capsule). It looks nice and clean.

Search on the new UI (left), and currently (right)

The new Search tab does a much better job of using the available space, and it does so while providing some additional features. Its tough to say precisely how it might work in application since all we have to base an assessment from is these images, but it looks like it pre-populates the page with some easily accessed results. If those can be tied to your existing preferences, that could be quite a time-saver.

The most prominent and far-reaching difference in the new interface relates to navigation. The five bottom tabs in the current version have somehow been consolidated down to three. It’s almost guaranteed that the loss of the Radio and Browse tabs will upset people that might have used them, but I think streamlining the app is a good thing. The new interface looks much friendlier and easier to navigate.

Playlists on the new UI (left), and currently (right)

While the new Playlists page looks much less busy and more friendly, it’s also less dense. For people like me that have a ton of playlists, that could be a serious problem. It already takes ages to find what I’m looking for manually (and the search tab, unfortunately, doesn’t prioritize direct matches for playlist names, making that a scroll-fest, too). This change in the vertical size of each playlist might make for a more accessible experience, but it’s going to hit some of us hard.

New “Your Likes” Playlist (left), perhaps replacing or complimenting “Liked from Radio” (right)

Some of these changes are harder to pin down without being able to play with the new interface ourselves. There’s a new “Your Likes” playlist we’ve seen in the screenshots making the rounds, but we can’t tell if it’s a replacement for the “Liked from Radio” playlist or something new.

Made for you section in the new UI (left), and currently via the Home section (right)

Note that it looks like the settings menu and profile icons will now show up in the Home tab (currently they’re only in Your Library). That seems a bit inconsistent since most of the new changes are about removing clutter, but I think it’s a good move.

d56ea_nexus2cee_Screenshot_20171209-001158-329x585 Spotify is testing a new three-tab interface, simpler list layouts, and other visual changes d56ea_nexus2cee_Screenshot_20171209-001158-329x585 Spotify is testing a new three-tab interface, simpler list layouts, and other visual changes

Your Top Songs 2017 in the new UI (left) and currently (right)

All of the changes look to be making the interface much less busy, with fewer menus, larger design elements, and fewer buttons whenever possible. Every page seems to be trying to provide a more accessible overview rather than immediately thrusting a detailed list on you. This is the sort of change that could make Spotify much more accessible to a less technical audience, but it could also be a thorn in the side of the service’s power users as less popular features are hidden away.

Again, this is all conjecture until we get a chance to play with the new interface ourselves. And we may never get to, Spotify could decide not to roll out the changes to a broader audience. That’s what A/B testing is for, after all. We’ll just have to wait and see.

AT&T begins testing high-speed internet over power lines

NEW YORK (Reuters) – ATT Inc has started trials in Georgia state and a non-U.S. location to deliver high-speed internet over power lines, the No. 2 wireless carrier said on Wednesday, marking its latest push to offer faster broadband service to more customers.

ATT aims to eventually deliver speeds faster than the 1 gigabit per second consumers can currently get through fiber internet service using high-frequency airwaves that travel along power lines. While the Georgia trial is in a rural area, the service could potentially be deployed in suburbs and cities, the company said in a statement.

“We think this product is eventually one that could actually serve anywhere near a power line,” said Marachel Knight, ATT’s senior vice president of wireless network architecture and design, in an interview. She added that ATT chose an international trial location in part because the market opportunity extends beyond the United States.

ATT said it had no timeline for commercial deployment and that it would look to expand trials as it develops the technology.

“Potentially, it can be a really big deal,” said Roger Entner, an analyst at Recon Analytics. “You need the power company to play ball with you. That’s the downside.”

ATT and Verizon Communications Inc, the largest U.S. wireless carrier, have also been testing 5G internet services in which the last leg of the connection is delivered via a radio signal to homes using high-frequency airwaves known as millimeter wave spectrum.

Verizon said in November it would launch the faster broadband service in three to five U.S. markets in 2018.

Instagram is testing a standalone messaging app because why not

Available now as part of a test in six select countries.

After starting out as a simple way for sharing photos with friends, family, and random followers, Instagram has grown into a fairly bloated app these days. Along with your regular feed, there’s the Instagram Explore Tab for finding photos the app thinks you’re interested in, a Stories feature taken straight from Snapchat, live streaming, and the ability to send direct messages to other users.

81401_Instagram-main-page_0_0 Instagram is testing a standalone messaging app because why not

According to The Verge, Instagram is playing with the idea of taking that last feature out of its main app and moving it to a standalone one by the name of “Direct.”

Direct is currently available for download as part of a test for Android and iOS in Chile, Israel, Italy, Portugal, Turkey, and Uruguay, and the reason for this move is to get more people using Instagram’s direct messaging service while letting the core Instagram app be a place to share your photos and videos with the entire world.

Instagram Direct opens to the camera viewfinder like Snapchat upon launching it, but you can also choose to swipe down to type out a text-based message. The page to the left is where you’ll find all of your account/app settings, and the one on right is home to your inbox of ongoing conversations. The app itself sounds pretty barebones, but the transition Instagram’s built between the two sounds incredibly sleek.

81401_Instagram-main-page_0_0 Instagram is testing a standalone messaging app because why not

The new Direct app.

When you’re in Direct on your Inbox page, starting to swipe again the left will reveal an Instagram logo, and completing this swipe will automatically open up the main Instagram app. The direct messaging feature is removed from Instagram once Direct is downloaded, but you can easily access it by swiping once again to the left in Instagram to see the Direct logo and then jump right to it.

It’s unclear if Instagram will bring Direct to other countries following its initial testing, but seeing how successful Facebook has been with Messenger after removing direct messaging from its core app, an expansion of Direct to other countries in the coming months wouldn’t be all that surprising.

Microsoft Testing Cortana Notebook Redesign in Windows 10

398ff_cortana-notebook-redesign Microsoft Testing Cortana Notebook Redesign in Windows 10

Cortana’s Notebook could soon be getting a new look. Redmond is A/B testing a new design for the personal assistant’s Notebook with a small group of Windows 10 users, although it is yet to officially announce anything regarding the new design. This is actual A/B testing, by the way.

The feature was initially spotted by a user on Reddit (via MSPU), although I was “lucky” enough to have the new design on my Windows 10 PC with the latest Redstone 4 Insider build.

The new Notebook design for Cortana isn’t too different from the current design. Rather than putting everything on a single page, Microsoft is separating the options into two different sections within the Notebook to make things, well, less confusing. Cortana’s Notebook has always been a confusing mess, combining things like your reminders, music providers, package tracking, accounts, integrations, and more — all on one single page.

By separating things like your to-do lists and reminders into the Organizer section and everything else into the Manage Skills section, it’s actually much easier to find things within Cortana’s Notebook than ever before. Notebook’s Manage Skills section displays the Cortana Skills you’ve enabled, and then all of your other Cortana-related settings. This includes the music providers you have enabled, or other integrations like LinkedIn, Office 365, or Uber are separated into the Connection settings. Other actions are separated into sections like Productivity, Lifestyle, etc.

398ff_cortana-notebook-redesign Microsoft Testing Cortana Notebook Redesign in Windows 10

Cortana’s Notebook redesign may not ever make it to all users, though. Microsoft’s believed to be working on a major revamp for Cortana in Windows 10 to make it work much more like macOS’ Spotlight search feature, and the Notebook feature might get a completely different look next year with the Windows 10 Redstone 4 release. Still, it’s possible Microsoft will this new design out to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update users in the coming months, as well as users on Android and iOS since Microsoft uses the similar web-based UI for Cortana on Android and iOS devices.

Netflix is testing a redesigned Android app with a bottom bar UI

The Netflix app on Android has looked the same for a long time, but the company is apparently trying something new. One Reddit user has shared the updated UI that popped up on his phone, which includes a bottom navigation bar. There are some other changes as well, but all the same functionality should be included. If you’re looking for an APK download, sorry. This looks like a server-side switch.

Currently, the Netflix app has a slide-out nav menu. It’s not a standard material design menu, and the assortment of notifications, categories, and settings is pretty messy. That menu is gone in the updated UI. In its place is a bar at the bottom of the screen with links to Home, Search, Downloads, and My Profile.

The categories from the old nav menu have been integrated with the search page. Likewise, notifications have been merged with the profile interface. The more prominent placement of downloads will be nice for those who need to use Netflix offline on a regular basis. In general, the bottom bar UI looks much cleaner and easier to use. That’s not always the case when apps move to the bottom bar, but Netflix definitely needs some tidying up.

Left: Current UI, Right: New UI

It’s unclear when (or even if) this interface will roll out. The OP on Reddit says this UI appeared in the stable version of the app, so it’s not a beta-specific feature. You’ll get the bottom bar when Netflix decides you should get it.

Health expert: ‘No point’ testing water at Kennywood’s Raging Rapids after parasite claim – Tribune

Updated 6 hours ago

The parasite that a Pittsburgh man claims wreaked havoc on his left eye following a Kennywood Park water ride is so common in the environment, county health officials opted not to test the water in the Raging Rapids ride when they learned about the incident.

The decision came because infections caused by the parasite are extremely rare, according to medical experts.

“It’s called an environmental organism, meaning it’s pretty much everywhere, in dirt and water,” Dr. Karen Hacker, Director of the Allegheny County Health Department said Friday about the parasite microsporidia. “We do believe we will never be able to directly connect this situation to this particular source. This is quite a rare situation.”

The health department is investigating the July 2 incident, in which Robert Trostle of Squirrel Hill claims water from the ride splashed in his left eye. He filed a lawsuit against Kennywood, claiming the incident caused a multitude of problems and he was forced to undergo surgery in his eye. The lawsuit says he was diagnosed with a condition called microsporidia keratitis. Trostle still suffers from inflammation, blurry vision, redness and pain, according to the lawsuit.

Hacker said her department consulted the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and determined that testing the water would not advance the case.

“The challenge for testing the water would be that if we did not find it (microsporidia) that doesn’t mean it’s not there, and it’s not helpful if you do find it because you have to identify a specific species,” she said. “There’s no point.”

The parasite in question has 1,200 species, and only 15 can cause any type of harm to humans, Hacker said.

“Though it may be possible to acquire this type of infection through exposure during an amusement park water ride, it is obviously very rare considering how many individuals are splashed with water on rides and how infrequent this type of infection occurs,” said Dr. Amesh Adalja, an infectious disease specialist in Pittsburgh and senior associate for Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security. “In order to establish causation, it will be important to understand the patient’s medical history, his other activities, whether he wears contact lenses — which is the most common means microsporida cause eye infections — and which specific microsporidia was isolated.”

The majority of people contracting such a parasite wear contact lenses, according to the CDC.

Hacker said health department officials interviewed Trostle, but the investigation remains open in case the CDC can extract a specific species type from Trostle’s eye.

“We have been talking to the CDC on and off since the summer,” Hacker said.

Brittany Behm, a spokeswoman for CDC’s Division of Foodborne, Waterborne, and Environmental Diseases, confirmed the consultation but declined further comment. She said the CDC does not have statistics on microsporidia keratitis infections because they are so uncommon.

Danielle Staresinic, an optometrist and owner of Lawrenceville Vision Care in Pittsburgh, said she’s maybe seen one fungal eye infection in her entire career.

“That doesn’t mean it’s impossible, but it’s incredibly rare,” she said. “Nothing like this shows up at our practice.”

After hearing about the Kennyood case, Dr. Peter Veldkamp, a UPMC infectious disease physician, said he did a bit of research and found review in a microbiology journal that cited 22 reported cases of microsporidia keratitis worldwide in one year about 10 years ago.

“This situation is very unfortunate but incredibly rare,” he said. “It’s most common in people with immunosuppressing medical conditions.”

But Trostle’s attorney, Alan Perer, said Friday that his client was in good health when he became afflicted.

“It’s really upsetting,” Perer said. “This is the county health department, and you have a victim of a potential disease, and they won’t give us any concrete information.”

Kennywood spokesman Nick Paradise said he cannot comment on pending litigation, adding, “We follow all regulations required by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture — the agency responsible for inspecting and certifying amusement rides — and often go above and beyond what is required by state law.”

Motorola Prepares to Begin Soak Testing Android Oreo in Brazil, Starting with the Moto Z and Moto Z2 Force

Since Lenovo took over Motorola in early 2015, official update support for their devices has not been exactly stellar, often skipping security patches and delivering updates slower than the competition. Recent controversial cases include Motorola not delivering the expected Android Nougat update for the Moto G 2015, and attempting to axe the promised Android Oreo update from the Moto G4 Plus. And while customer outrage has made them backtrack on some decisions in the past, it still speaks pretty ill for their update record as a whole. After confirming which devices were getting the Android Oreo update, it’s now time for Moto to start rolling out the usual soak test.

As it was historically the case, the update will be initially rolling out to their flagship line, which includes the Moto Z and the Moto Z2 Force. Brazilian owners of these devices over at AndroidPIT Brazil have reported that they’ve received an email with a survey for applying as beta testers for an early build of Android 8.0 Oreo. The soak test is not quite out yet, though, as these emails and surveys mean that Motorola is still looking for applicable testers for the Oreo update. However, the site does report that the initial testing build may come within the next 48 hours.

Speculation on this end indicates that the final update will possibly roll out during the third week of December. If you live in Brazil and you’re enrolled into the Motorola Feedback Network, have a look at your email and check if you’ve received the survey. If, however, you were not already enrolled into the MFN, or if you did not receive any email, it’s highly unlikely that Motorola is giving out any more surveys to users. It is possible, however, that update packages for the said soak test will appear in our Moto Z and Moto Z2 Force forums as soon as it appears in the wild, so be on the lookout for that very soon.

Video: Windows to get new look with Fluent Design System

Microsoft’s latest Redstone 4 Windows 10 preview build 17040 got a lot of fixes, but for some reason the company didn’t mention it is also testing a newly designed search interface.

The new design search UI introduces acrylic translucent effects from Microsoft’s Fluent Design system to create an immersive, floating search bar.

As Thurrott.com observes, the new search bar looks and behaves quite like Apple’s macOS Spotlight search box, moving results that normally are found from the Start Menu and the Cortana search bar to a central location. The new search UI was discovered by Italian blog Aggiornamenti Lumia.

The search box can be surfaced with the Windows+S shortcut, which opens the search bar in the center of the screen.

After typing in a search, the results are displayed beneath and can be sorted into several filters, including All, Web, Documents, and Settings. Users can search for files, pictures, videos, music, settings, and apps.

Microsoft has only just started building the Redstone 4 Windows 10 release, which should arrive to all users early next year.

Thurrott has provided registry edit instructions for Windows Insiders to activate the immersive search feature in the latest Redstone 4 release.

Twitter Confirms It Is Testing a ‘Tweetstorm’ Feature on Android, iOS

Twitter’s under-testing Tweetstorm feature was spotted back in September, and at the time, was hidden from users. The feature allows the Twitterati to easily create chains of individual tweets that exceed Twitter’s 280-character limit for messages. Now, it’s starting to show on alpha and beta builds of the Twitter app for Android and iOS.

“Back in September, a developer discovered a hidden feature in Android’s Twitter app that would allow you to type out several tweets and queue them to send one by one, making it easier to launch a “tweetstorm” without having to type and send each tweet individually,” tech blog Android Police reported late on Friday.

Back then, the feature wasn’t activated yet but it now appears to be going live for some users, the report added. The Tweetstorm feature is speculated to be part of the Twitter v7.24.0 alpha for Android, but as mentioned, it is uncertain if a server-side switch will activate it. You can sideload the alpha build, which will be more buggy than beta builds, from APK mirror.

Twitter has confirmed to TechCrunch it is testing the Tweetstorm feature in both the alpha and beta programmes on Android and iOS platforms.

Meanwhile, in a major overhaul, the company announced to remove verification badges from users who violate its rules, adding that the micro-blogging platform is reworking on its entire verification system.

“We will continue to review and take action as we work towards a new programme we are proud of,” the official @TwitterSupport account posted late on Wednesday.

Earlier this week, Twitter suspended its account verification exercise – a process that gives public figures on the micro-blogging platform a blue check mark next to their names.

There are many ways to get a Kali Linux system up and running on a cloud instance. Amazon offers the Amazon Web Services Free Tier service. This is a limited instance available to enable new users to learn to navigate and use their products.

The preconfigured Kali Linux Amazon Machine Image is also free and fits within the limitations of the Free Tier service. This means the server could be set up and operated for free for at least 12 months at 750 hours per month, though it is important to keep the usage limits in mind to avoid unexpected charges.

With this method, costs should not be a limiting factor for training and once-off testing. For a large enterprise, however, these low or no costs should not really play a decisive role. In that situation, the operational costs to maintain a few more midrange Linux virtual machines are easily justified by having a more secure environment.

Microsoft Azure also offers a Kali Linux machine, but other than a $200 one month trial credit, this will not be for free. Again, a business should not be too concerned; an interested individual will probably steer toward Amazon for their free offer instead. From a usage and technical perspective, there is not much difference between the two.

Other providers, such as OneHost Cloud, have a Kali Linux system available, as well, and some others simply allow a manual installation based on a standard Linux virtual machine, which, of course, could be Kali Linux — but be sure to check if provider permission is required first.

No new Windows 10 Redstone 4 Insider builds this week due to bug in testing

Just yesterday, Microsoft pushed out Windows 10 Insider build 17025 for PC to the Slow ring but turns out that might be all the Windows Insider action for the week. The Windows Insider team apparently has hit a bug in testing, and will not be pushing out any new Fast ring Windows 10 Redstone 4 Insider builds this week as a result.

According to Dona Sarkar, it looks as though the team is getting a green screen (which is the Insider version of the blue screen of death) when connecting power to some devices. This is definitely a very serious issue that needs to be attended to, as the last thing Insiders would want is a build that renders their PCs useless.

The last time a Fast ring build was released was just about a week ago with build 17025. So you Windows Insiders will just have to spend some more time focusing on bug smashing from the last release, and not downloading new builds.

NEW DELHI: Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi launched its Redmi 4 smartphone with Android Marshmallow back in May this year. The company recently announced that it will roll out Android Nougat for the same smartphone.

The successor to last year’s Redmi 3S Prime, the new Redmi 4 has an all-metal unibody design. The hybrid dual-SIM smartphone comes with curved edges and its rear panel has a circular fingerprint sensor, along with the company logo. There’s also an IR blaster for turning it into a universal remote control.

In terms of specifications, Xiaomi Redmi 4 features a 5-inch HD display of 720×1280 pixel resolution. The display has a 2.5D curved glass design. It’s powered by a 1.4GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor and runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system topped with the company’s MIUI 8.2 skin. Xiaomi has announced that the smartphone will get Android N after its beta testing is complete.

Android Pay appears to be testing the ability to see all card purchases, even those not done on your phone

Keeping track of your purchases isn’t always easy. That’s why services such as PayPal which can notify you of every purchase or deposit can really come in handy. Android Pay does something similar, but only when you pay with your phone. Now, it’s looking like the service might be able to pull transaction history from your card(s) regardless of if it was on your phone or not.

The best gifts for Android users

As noted on Twitter, the Android Pay app appears to be testing out a new feature for “Full Purchase History.” In short, this new feature pulls your entire transaction history from your card and displays it right alongside Android Pay purchases.

This new setting on Android Pay appears to only work for specific cards, though. In this first case, it works with an American Express Cash card, and other users with American Express cards are reporting the same on Reddit, even in the UK.

Presumably, adding this functionality will also give users the ability to receive notifications for purchases with that card through Android Pay, just like purchases made with the phone, but that has not been fully confirmed yet.
