Greetings Mi Fans,
We have passed another week with this word of technology. We are learning about modern technology with the Tech section.  We at Mi Community keep you up-to-date with the latest tech trends. Let's check out what we have for you this week.
Google Photos Will No Longer Merge With Google Drive From July-2019
From the month of July, google photos will not be integrated with the drive. When you upload photos to Google Drive or Google Photos, those images won’t automatically sync over to the other service as well.
Google announced the change recently. It’s an advancement, it says is meant to help simplify some features that have caused confusion for some users. In addition to the photos you upload not syncing to the other service, photos you delete from one service also won’t be automatically deleted from the other as well.
Picture-in-Picture Mode Is Coming To Google Chrome On Android
The Picture-in-Picture mode is already available for Google Chrome browser on the desktop and on some applications on Android such as YouTube, VLC Player, Google Play Movies, Google Duo and Google Maps.
Google is working to implement the Picture-in-Picture API in Chrome on Android to shows videos played in a window on other apps.
Xiaomi Is Finally Introducing An App Drawer And App Shortcuts In MIUI
Xiaomi’s MIUI is one of the most popular custom Android user interface as it comes pre-installed on most of the Xiaomi smartphones. However, like most other Chinese custom UIs, this one too lacks the app drawer.
When Xiaomi launched the Poco brand and Pocophone F1 smartphone, the company also announced Poco Launcher which surprisingly features an application drawer. This was well-received as users didn’t have to rely on third-party launchers.
Dark Mode In Gmail
2019 seems to be the darkest year in mobile OS history, if you count the fact that both Android and iOS are getting official system-wide dark themes. Not only that, but Google and Apple are also busy working on adding dark themes to all of their mobile apps.
Well, this was all about the best technologies for this week, special thanks to all the authors of the threads for contributing their knowledge and time so that our fellow Mi fans stay up to date with the latest happenings in the world!
