Misc Tech Questions
« on: December 13, 2019, 11:28:07 AM »
What does this new "picture-in-picture" feature mean? What does it do? I see it now on most videos as a small blue icon and when hovered over it expands to this:



I clicked on it and all it did was send the video to the lower corner
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

picture in picture is an old android feature, you can have 1 app in a small square over a second app in the background. I use it most with google maps, I can use my phone as normal with google maps in the bottom right corner

You use Firefox... they recently added it (see https://www.pcmag.com/news/372317/firefox-71-adds-picture-in-picture-for-youtube-and-netflix) Chrome had this option for a while (although no box showing it, only when right-clicking twice on the video it is an option in the menu.)

It's very useful when you want to watch something but don't want the webpage open the whole time. This Picture in Picture window you can pull out of the browser windows and it remains on top of everything.

Just got the option to update my Galaxy S10e to Android 10. I don't usually update software unless there's some major security bug, but I wanna try out Android 10. :)
Go for it or na?

For sure why not? As long as it's the final version (not beta)

I did. The only thing I noticed different so far is they changed the volume bar to be much thinner and when you plug in to charge it displays how much time until full in small white letters.

It also now has an additional bar at the bottom of the keyboard which is annoying and won't turn off

I use Nova launcher prime so could be it's different then your phone. My keyboard looks like this and it didn't change from before. Where are your navigation buttons?

Turned them off a long time ago. Instead it is just a swipe up from off the screen. Gets rid of the navigation bar entirely. Until now, that is.
Not sure if this is only a Samsung thing though.
