One of the Big Four banks in the US is now getting ready to jump on the bandwagon for its app: Chase. Unfortunately, face unlock support isn''t live for everyone just yet.
The launch today means that public health agencies can now use the API in apps released to the general public. To date, Apple and Google have only released beta versions of the API to help with the development process.To be clear, this launch means that developers working on behalf of public health agencies can now issue apps that make use of it #8212; Apple and Google themselves are not creating an exposure notification or contact tracing app. The companies say that many U.S. states and 22 countries across five continents have already asked for, and been provided access to, the API to support their development efforts, and they anticipate more being added going forward. So far, Apple and Google say they have conducted more than 24 briefings and tech talks for public health officials, epidemiologists and app developers working on their behalf.

Google announced in a blog post on Thursday that the update will arrive with the release of Chrome 76 later this month.

If a site searches for the FileSystem API and gets an error message, it can, as Google puts it, give the user a different experience.
While the name doesn;t exactly make it sound like a break through feature, it;s actually a big deal. With this new API, developers now get two new ways to push users to update their app. "This is something that developers have asked us for a long time is say you own an app and you want to make sure the user is running the latest version, " Google senior director for Android product management and developer relations Stephanie Saad Cuthbertson told me. "This is something developers really fret. "
But many apps, due to safety concerns actually don;t work on rooted devices. Netflix, Snapchat, many banking apps and several other important apps are blocked from running on rooted devices. This puts rooted devices in a bad position, missing out on important functionality.But a XDA recognized developer named topjohnwu created Magisk, creating a systemless root, which didn 't modify the original system files. So it was able to work around Google 's Safety Net API, and efficiently hide root from locked apps. Magisk alone negated a lot of negatives of using a rooted device.

Although Fortnite is a free to play game, Epic Games offers in app purchases that can be acquired by purchasing V Bucks. V Bucks can be used in Fortnite to buy items like the Battle Pass, skins, dances, emotes, gliders, and pickaxes. Epic Games has reportedly made over $1 billion through these in app purchases, and the massive revenue they;ve generated is a big reason the company is opting to not distribute the mobile game via the Google Play Store, as we first reported. Instead, the game will be available on Epic Games; website for select devices after the Galaxy Note 9 exclusivity period is over. Samsung is hoping to entice young gamers to buy the Galaxy Note 9 by offering a special Fortnite promotion.XDA Junior Member thesbros, an expert at data mining, found evidence for this promotion from Epic Games ' own website. He did so by querying the entitlement API, which is responsible for determining if a user is "entitled " to certain promotions and services. For example, if you have the entitlement "Fortnite Android " on your Epic account, then you will be able to access the mobile game on your supported Android device. Within the JSON output are strings that explicitly mention a "Samsung Preorder 15000 V Bucks Promo " entitlement. The only Samsung Galaxy device that we know will be available soon for pre ordering is the Galaxy Note 9. 15,000 V Bucks is about $150, which is within the $100 $150 range that rumors stated would be the value of pre order promotions.

If you;ve signed up for any new web services in the past few years, you;ve probably encountered a CAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart) or two. A CAPTCHA is a form that forces you to transcribe a blurry series of letters and digits. They;re challenge response questions designed to prevent bots from hammering websites with nonsense data, and one of the most widely adopted -- Google;s reCAPTCHA -- displays as many as 100 million tests every day. And now, they;re coming to your smartphone.On Thursday, Google announced the reCAPTCHA Android API, a CAPTCHA test adapted to smartphones. When it ships in the coming weeks as part of Google Play Services, the framework that updates and authenticates Google services, it will let app developers invoke the reCAPTCHA system in app sign up forms, login pages, and more.
LastPass is a password management service that lets you save your passwords, card forms, addresses, and card details. With the Autofill API, LastPass will help "save you even more time on your Android device, because LastPass will be able to help you fill in more than just passwords." Besides, LastPass also looks to ramp up the security features through this feature. LastPass currently relies on the Accessibility API to fill up the text fields. However, it comes with two drawbacks, as explained by LastPass it's more processor intensive (i.e., time taking), and requires users to grant additional permissions.The Autofill API feature will also let you make payments via your credit card forms stored in LastPass, for instance paying on Amazon via credit card will automatically fill card details to take you further to order the preferred item. LastPass has said to roll out this feature to Android O running devices in a few months, meanwhile working on an updated version of LastPass to incorporate the integration with Android O's Autofill API.
Twitter is working on new ways for users to live stream video through Periscope with the newly announced Periscope Producer API, as revealed in a report from The Verge. The new API is designed to allow developers and companies to create new methods for Twitter and Periscope users to live stream video content from other apps and non smartphone cameras. Twitter added a 360 degree live stream feature to Periscope for the Insta360 Air camera in December, and the company says the new API should open up new possibilities for live streaming via spherical cameras.Powered by ClickOnline.com
Per The Information, Twitter will open up its API (application programming interface) next week to allow publishers to stream live video directly to Twitter. The way it's currently set up, publishers have to strike a deal with Twitter like PBS did for the Inauguration or what the NFL does for Thursday night games or publishers can go through the Twitter owned live streaming app, Periscope. Twitter currently broadcasts roughly 6.6 million hours of live video through Periscope. A direct connection to the platform could increase that number on Twitter significantly. Why it matters: This is the latest step Twitter is taking to compete with other media distribution giants, primarily Facebook and Snapchat, on live streaming video. Twitter beat out Facebook for NFL content, which draws an average of 3.5 million unique viewers per game. With an increase in live content through an open API, Twitter can expect to see an increase in video engagement, and hopefully revenue. Twitter credits its investment in video for increasing ad engagement 151% last year,
