Microsoft Outlook now lets you block external images

0 comments

Microsoft Outlook has gained the option to block external images in emails. While this might seem like a minor tweak, it can be helpful for privacy-minded users, as images can be used to track whether emails have been read — valuable information for spammers.

Here's the changelog:

You can choose to block external images in emails. Turn this on by going to Settings and tapping on the account where you'd like it enabled.

[Free Alert] Ariana Grande and The Beach Boys albums are gratis on Google Play Music (probably US-only)

0 comments

Google Play Music used to offer free albums every few weeks. It looked like a win-win for everyone: people could get some free tunes, and Play Music would attract people who might not have used the service otherwise. Perhaps Google didn't feel that it was worth doing anymore, as we hadn't seen anything of the sort for over two years. But now, albums from Ariana Grande and The Beach Boys are just $0 from Play Music.

0 comments

Google is rolling out its first significant update since launching Podcasts this week. For the most part, this appears to be primarily a bug fix and polishing release. There are little tweaks here and there related to Podcasts, including a corrected icon. There's also the start of a search feature for settings so people won't have to wander through several screens to configure the app as they want it.

It's not currently clear what type of phone was involved.

Snapchat Spectacles get non-circular video export

0 comments

Since their release, Spectacles, Snapchat's funky, video recording sunglasses, could only export circular video. Presumably, this was to differentiate video recorded on Spectacles from other sources, to raise awareness of the product. While unique, circular video isn't particularly practical. Snap seems aware of this, as a recent update has enabled Spectacle to export video in more traditional aspect ratios.

Spectacles can now export circular video with either a white or black background, in addition to square and "widescreen" (which appears to be 4:3) video.

The Google Feed has changed substantially since it dropped the Google Now brand. Google focuses more on suggesting links than the predictive cards from the Google Now days.
