Update From Nintendo Switch Allows Personal Transfers Of Saved Games

Nintendo Switch has come up with the latest update. This update allows gamers to transfer personal saved games between systems. Till this point, one only had the option to move all the user and save data between Switch consoles. Now that is completely useless for all those who share consoles, who did not even bother to create separate profiles. This also goes to show that one can easily take the saved game of Super Mario Odyssey along with them in case anyone ends up buying the new Switch models Nintendo.

The rumours suggest that it is set to release later in the year. Now that is only if one feels that a much stronger Switch is worthy of getting an upgrade. It might even be the case if anyone wants the fairly cheaper and much more portable model. It would be ideally suitable for kids as it would be risky to provide them with a costly as well as a tough to handle model. One thing that users must keep in mind is the fact that transferring a saved game to a brand new Switch would wipe it away from the source system. So extra caution must prevail in order to prevent this from taking place.

The updated version of 8.0.0 also contains within it 15 icons for a new user, right from Splatoon 2 and Yoshi’s Crafted World. It offers people with the chance to set one’s region to Taiwan, Hong Kong or South Korea. Plus, there are a number of ways to sort out the software by the total time of play, the last time it was played, the title of the software and also the software publisher. Moreover, it even contains a feature to zoom along with restrictions for VR Mode under parental controls.

Sony Comes Up With Their Service of Hailing Taxis in Tokyo

Sony Comes Up With Their Service of Hailing Taxis in Tokyo

Sony has launched a service of hailing taxis in Tokyo. Thus it makes another major entry into the unusual transportation landscape of Japan. There is an app available. One can use the Minna no Taxi’s S.Ride app from today onwards, which can allow users to not use regular taxis. People can make payments through cash, credit card or by way of a digital wallet that is powered by the digital wallet. The S in S.Ride does not stand for Sony.

A press release clearly describes the service to be simple, smart and extremely speedy. Sony says that S.Ride makes use of AI technology to predict if demand would be the highest and accordingly go ahead in dispatching drivers. Last year, Minna no Taxi Corporation was formed by Sony Payment Services, Sony Corp along with six taxi companies. Though, the names of only five companies are mentioned in the press release. The names include the likes of Kokusai and Daiwa, which happens to be two of the biggest operators in Tokyo. Sony has said that the total size of the fleet would go beyond 10,000 cars.

S.Ride is not the first application of its kind in Japan. The dominant chat app, Line had launched a similar type of collaboration. Their collaboration happened to be with leading taxi company Nihon Kotsu back in the year 2015. Unfortunately, their service had come to an end in the year 2018. There is a bigger competitor, which happens to be in to give stiff competition to S.Ride. Now that competitor would be Japan Taxi. This is an application run by Ichiro Kawanabe, the CEO and Chairman of the taxi federation of Japan, Nihon Kotsu. Uber happens to be a small player in Japan. It offers only premium black cars in Tokyo.

Skype Includes Screen Sharing Feature To Their Android And iOS Apps

Skype Includes Screen Sharing Feature To Their Android And iOS Apps

Skype is getting their attention turned towards mobile. Their latest beta feature adds up screen sharing to their Android and iOS apps. It might not seem to be as significant as some of the recent iterations for Skype. The recent iterations include group calls for 50 people and background blur effect in video calls. Still, it provides workers as well as friends another reason to remain locked in the application.

Microsoft feels that people would use this feature of screen share to show even a colleague one’s presentation in PowerPoint. People could also swipe through Tinder with the help of a BFF. It also allows Skype to remain apart from their biggest rivals, including Messenger, Snapchat and WhatsApp. They all lack this particular feature. Their absence on larger platforms has let smaller applications, which offer mobile screen sharing similar to Squad, to fill up the spot that has remained vacant. Though there are a whole lot of other options available still there are none, which gets used widely like Skype. Plus, it allows people to make calls and moreover, the calls are absolutely free. In addition to this, the cross-platform feature of Skype clearly means that people would be able to share the screen with all those who use MacOS, Windows or iOS. Hence, this makes it even more relevant.

Now, before this feature became available on a widespread basis, it will only remain confined to one particular thing. The feature will only be available in the preview build of the app. One can easily try this one out in version 8.43.76.38. Anyone can download this version from APK Mirror. This is indeed a shame that Google is still not allowing people to do that with Duo, especially when it is gaining a lot of popularity.
