Google Duo Video Calling App Touches 10 Million Downloads on Android

  • Google Duo was made globally available last month
  • Duo video calling app lets people call their phone contacts
  • In India, the app is ranked 24 on top charts list in Google Play


Google's month-old video calling app, Duo, has hit 10 million downloads on Google Play - and has 10 million users as well. Google Product Lead for Communication Amit Fulay announced the milestone in a tweet saying, "Google Duo is over 10M users on Android, thanks for the love."

The new video calling app just four days after its global rollout on Google Play made it to the top of the charts as top free app. The Duo app is available in all countries where Google Play is available.

Android Police points out that Duo despite hitting 10 million downloads has dropped significantly on top charts on Google Play. In the US, the app is now ranked 124  in the top free apps chart list. In India, Google Duo is however ranked 24 on the top free apps charts.

The company's brand new video calling app was launched last month to take on Apple's FaceTime, Microsoft's Skype, Viber, and others similar services. The Duo app lets  people call their phone contacts (as long as they have the app installed) and one of the biggest highlight features is it can work even on low networks.

Another notable  feature of the Duo app is 'Knock Knock,' which essentially shows preview video of the caller and lets people decide whether to answer or not. Google had previously  confirmed that the Duo video calling app uses end-to-end encryption and will be HD quality though the app will adjust it as per the available network. To recall, Google Duo was first announced at I/O developers' conference in May.

Android Nougat new features can be divided into three clear categories: performance, security and productivity.Performance in Android Nougat





Android 7.0 Nougat comes along with Nexus devices New Nexus devices expected to release on coming Monday Google has so far not confirmed availability of Android N

The new Android operating system for mobile coming soon earlier this year which Google is expecting to release Android 7.0 Nougat coming Monday.This new version of Android 7.0 named as
Nougat which is released to developers to play with it at I/O conference.

Google this year has been slightly ahead of schedule when it comes to releasing the next version of its Android operating system, Android 7.0 Nougat, for mobile devices.  The company released the first developer preview a full two months ahead of I/O conference giving developers a chance to play with it. Google also confirmed the official  name of next Android version, Nougat, in June.

Now, if a mobile carrier and a major Android OEM are to be believed, the all-new Android Nougat will be available to Nexus users starting Monday. According to Canadian mobile  operator Telus, the final Android 7.0 Nougat build will start rolling out to the Huawei Nexus 6P and LG Nexus 5X beginning Monday. LG, on the other hand, in an official document has confirmed that Android 7.0 Nougat will be rolled out to Korean G5 units from Monday. With both companies mentioning the same day for availability of the final Android N release, it does appear as if Google may officially start seeding the final build in the time-frame.

If this comes out to be true, we may also see the launch of the platform lead devices for Android Nougat to be announced on Monday itself. However, it is worth noting that  Google is yet to announce a date for release.

We can expect the final build of Android 7.0 Nougat to be available for the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Pixel C devices, as well as General Mobile 4G Android One devices.
The final Android Nougat public release will bring improvements like multi-window support, enhanced notifications, revamped doze, number blocking, and more.

How can I make my Galaxy Note 7 even better, right out of the box?

The Galaxy Note 7 is Samsung's best phone ever, but it's not perfect. Some of the out-the-box settings are a little strange, and others are downright frustrating. Here's how you can make it the best possible experience — immediately!


  • Turn off the icon frames
  • Alphabetize your launcher
  • Change your keyboard
  • Set up Do Not Disturb
  • Set up a Samsung account
  • Customize your Always on Display
  • Enable the Blue light filter
  • Change the content scaling
  • Set up the iris scanner
  • Customize your Quick Settings



Turn off the icon frames
We're not sure why Samsung decided to jazz up its app icons with white frames, but in order to reach some sort of consistency it did the same thing with all the other icons, too.
We're not impressed. Turn off the icon frames and get back your zen.


  • Open Settings.
  • Tap Display.
  • Tap Icon frames.
  • Select Icons only.


Alphabetize your launcher
Samsung maintains that your app drawer should be customized according to taste, but we think your app drawer should be alphabetized... for harmony. It's easy to do it, too.
Just remember that even after ordering the icons alphabetically, future app installs will append to the end of your app list, requiring you to perform the action regularly.


  • Open the App Drawer.
  • Tap the Menu button on the top right.
  • Tap A-Z.


Change your keyboard

Samsung has improved its native keyboard quite a bit over the last few years, but it is still not very good at predicting what you want to say — especially if you're a fast typer.


 On the Note 7, the Samsung keyboard disables autocorrect and predictive typing by default, and won't underline misspelled words. Instead of fighting with it,  install the Google Keyboard and be a happier person — and a more accurate typer.


  • Open Google Play Store.
  • Search for Google Keyboard.
  • Tap on Install.
  • Tap on Open.
  • Follow setup instructions.



Set up Do Not Disturb
The Note 7 has a great Do Not Disturb function that allows you to set certain times of the day or night when the phone won't produce sound or vibration when alerted.

While you can activate DND manually, the best way to do it is to schedule it for right before you go to bed, and right before you wake up. It's even possible to set it for certain days, so you can stay up late on weekends and still get notified.


  • Open Settings.
  • Tap on Sounds.
  • Tap on Do not disturb.
  • Activate Turn on as scheduled.
  • Change desired settings for Days, Start time, and End time.



Set up your Samsung Account
Yes, it seems unnecessary, and yes, it's yet another account to sign into, but a Samsung account is increasingly important on a Galaxy device. For starters,
 it enables the new Samsung Cloud, which offers 15GB of free cloud storage and free backup of your contacts, calendar entries, photos, documents and more.
 It also facilitates the Secure Folder, powered by Knox, which is a great tool for storing confidential personal information within the phone.

You can set up your Samsung account when first setting up the Note 7, but in case you skip that step, you can do so anytime.


  • Open Settings.
  • Scroll down and tap on Cloud and accounts.
  • Tap on Accounts.
  • Tap on Add account.
  • Tap on Samsung account.
  • Follow setup instructions.


Customize your Always On Display
Depending on the carrier and country you purchase your device, your Galaxy Note 7 may have its Always On Display turned on or off. Either way,
the feature is worth investigating for its myriad features. Leaving it on indefinitely has a negative impact on battery life, while customizing it to show your calendar entries is incredibly convenient. The choice is yours.


  • Open Settings.
  • Tap on Display.
  • Tap on Always On Display.
  • Slide switch to On (if necessary).
  • Tap Layouts. Choose a content type and theme.
  • Press back button.
  • Tap Set schedule.
  • Choose a Start and End time.


Set up your Blue light filter
One of the best new settings on the Galaxy Note 7 is its blue light filter, which cuts down on the sleep-affecting blue light generated from modern displays.
The Note 7 goes even one step further and adds a Sunrise to Sunset toggle that enables the feature when the sun goes down and turns it off the following morning.
It's incredibly handy, and may just stave off that sleepless night.


  • Open Settings.
  • Tap on Display.
  • Tap on Blue light filter.
  • Slide switch to On.
  • Select Sunset to sunrise.



Use content scaling to fit more on the screen
The Galaxy Note 7 comes with a beautiful 5.7-inch QHD display, and one advantage of that high resolution is the ability to fit more on the screen at once — more text, more icons, and more images. But this denser content scaling is turned off by default, since for some people the text will be too small. Experiment with smaller content scaling and see if it makes sense for you.

  • Open Settings.
  • Tap on Display.
  • Tap on Content scaling.
  • Select Small.
  • Tap Done in the top right.



Set up the iris scanner to unlock your phone
The Galaxy Note 7 has one major feature its S7 counterparts don't: an iris scanner. Not only are iris scanners inherently more secure than a fingerprint sensor,

but it also works in situations your thumbs do not: when it is raining, or when your hands are sequestered inside gloves. Enable the iris unlock by letting the phone take a
 scan of your eyes, and learn to love unlocking a different way.


  • Open Settings.
  • Tap Irises. Enter security code.
  • Tap Continue. Follow instructions.
  • Once setup is complete, press Turn on.
  • Toggle Web sign-in and Verify Samsung account if desired.


Customize your Quick Settings
When you first pick up the Galaxy Note 7, especially after coming from an older Samsung device, you'll quickly see that the software is different in subtle but important ways.

 One of those areas of change is the new Quick Settings menu, which is much simpler and easier to use. But it is still powerful, and very customizable. Here's how to do it:


  • Pull down the notification shade from top of the screen.
  • Pull down again on the two horizontal lines to expand Quick Settings.
  • Hold down on any icon for a second.
  • Drag quick setting buttons to desired place.


Top 10 tips and tricks you need to do immediately on your new Galaxy Note 7 to increase performance and battery savings.

 Oppo has recently released new F1s smartphone in India.Now we will cover the complete  Oppo F1s review completely.Some of the highlighted points are listed.

Big Points
The Oppo F1s is another upgraded version of F1 in addition to 16-megapixel selfie camera
Fastest fingerprint sensor as well as long life battery
In India Oppo F1s price is Rs. 17,990

The 5.5-inch IPS display produces rich colours, and the maximum brightness level is much better than the Oppo F1 could manage. We had no trouble with the display under direct  sunlight. Even though the panel is good, we're not happy about the HD resolution, which is a bit too coarse for a screen of this size. Even though pixellation isn't all that apparent,  it would have been nice to have text and icons just a bit sharper, and that isn't asking for too much considering this phone's price point
The F1s gets a fingerprint sensor, which was missing on the F1, and it works very well. Just like the F1 Plus, the screen unlocks instantly.

The sensor is flanked by two backlit  capacitive buttons. Oppo also throws in a notification LED near the top. The all-metal body looks really good and the glossy gold trim that runs along the edges of the phone adds  to the device's premium aesthetic. Button placement is ergonomic although we would have liked better spacing between the volume buttons so we could distinguish them better. The headphones socket is on the bottom, along with a Micro-USB port and mono speaker. Once again, the headphones socket would have been better on the top as cable tend to get in the way while you're trying to type.

Around the back, we have the 13-megapixel camera and LED flash. The battery is sealed inside and is non-removable. The SIM tray sits on the right and we appreciate the fact that  it's not a hybrid Dual-SIM solution. Along with the two Nano-SIM cutouts, you also get a dedicated microSD card slot which can accommodate a 128GB card.The package includes a 10W power adapter, data cable, silicon case, SIM ejector tool, headset, and some reading material. Overall, the F1s gets a much-needed cosmetic upgrade, which makes it feel relevant among the competition. The fast fingerprint sensor and dedicated microSD card slot are added bonuses. It doesn't feel too heavy at 160 gram and is fairly slim at 7.3mm.

Specifications and features
Oppo has gone with MediaTek's MT6750 octa-core SoC which features eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores running at 1.5GHz. This chip is part of MediaTek's new entry-level lineup with
integrated LTE which was announced earlier this year. We got 41,244 points in AnTuTu and 21fps in GFXbench.

Other specifications include 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, dual-band Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, USB OTG, GPS, and FM radio. There's no NFC or Wi-Fi ac. The F1s supports 4G
LTE on Indian bands along with VoLTE support.

Just like the F1 Plus, the Oppo F1s runs on Colour OS 3.0, which makes Android look somewhat like Apple's iOS. This is fine by us, but what we don't like is that fact that OEMs are still serving up Android Lollipop today, which is now almost two generations old. We might see Marshmallow as an update down the line but it's always nice to have
the latest version at launch.

 Although people typically install it on their phones to chat privately with their Facebook friends, Facebook also uses Messenger to bring features and capabilities that might not make sense, or even be possible, as part of the main Facebook service. And of course, a separate app gives Facebook even more advertising and other moneymaking opportunities.

For that reason, Facebook is pushing users to download the app, even though it takes up valuable storage on the phone. The company recently started blocking access to Facebook messages from mobile web browsers on Android phones in some markets. The ban will extend to iPhones as well, though Facebook isn't saying when.

Before you complain, consider what a separate Messenger app offers beyond simply typing words and sending emoji back and forth:

1. Group chats
Messenger lets you easily add friends to group chats so you can make dinner or travel plans or just talk about your day. Although this is also possible using your browser,
 it's more convenient with the app. If kicking people off mobile browser messaging is the stick to prod people toward the app, the convenience of Messenger is the carrot to lure users.
Tapping the "groups" icon at the bottom of the screen will take you to existing group chats and let you start new ones. You can add people to group chats at any time, or
leave the group. If you have an often-used group chat, you can also "pin" it to the top of your messages to make it easily accessible.

2. Bots

Since April, Facebook has let outside businesses create "chat bots" that can send you the news or weather, help you shop for shoes or book plane tickets and hotel rooms.
 You send a message to a brand's bot just as you would a friend; the difference is that the reply is automated through software. The results can be clumsy, as expected
 for such a new venture.

But bots can be helpful. Expedia, for example, lets you search for hotels and book them by messaging with its bot. Start by telling the bot where you are going and when.
After some back and forth, the bot will give you hotel options. To book, the bot will take you to Expedia's website.

This is just the start. Perhaps one day, the bot will be more useful by letting you book directly through Messenger. David Marcus, Facebook's head of messaging products,
has called bots "overhyped in the short term and underhyped in the long term."

3. Send or request money
Using your debit card, you can send money to your Facebook friends using Messenger - as long as they also have their card number attached to their Facebook account.
You can also request money, in case your friends forgot to pay you for those movie tickets and aren't answering their email. To use the payments option, select the person
 you want money from and tap "payments." There are no extra fees to send or receive payments, but you must use a debit card - not a credit card.

4. Video calls

Messenger offers yet another way to do video calls on your phone. It's free over a Wi-Fi connection. If you use cellular, you might get charged for data by your phone company.

5. Play games
How about some soccer - or football, as it's known in most of the world? Select a friend to play with. Then, select Messenger's emoji keyboard by tapping on the emoji icon
on the left side of your message window, right above the keyboard. Tap the soccer ball icon and send it to your friend. Then, tap the ball with your finger and keep tapping
 it so it stays in the "air."

During a recent, frustrating attempt, I had a high score of just two - though that's still one more than what Portugal scored to win the Euro Cup this year.

has called bots "overhyped in the short term and underhyped in the long term."

3. Send or request money
Using your debit card, you can send money to your Facebook friends using Messenger - as long as they also have their card number attached to their Facebook account.
You can also request money, in case your friends forgot to pay you for those movie tickets and aren't answering their email. To use the payments option, select the person
 you want money from and tap "payments." There are no extra fees to send or receive payments, but you must use a debit card - not a credit card.

4. Video calls

Messenger offers yet another way to do video calls on your phone. It's free over a Wi-Fi connection. If you use cellular, you might get charged for data by your phone company.

5. Play games
How about some soccer - or football, as it's known in most of the world? Select a friend to play with. Then, select Messenger's emoji keyboard by tapping on the emoji icon
on the left side of your message window, right above the keyboard. Tap the soccer ball icon and send it to your friend. Then, tap the ball with your finger and keep tapping
 it so it stays in the "air."

During a recent, frustrating attempt, I had a high score of just two - though that's still one more than what Portugal scored to win the Euro Cup this year.
