Android 12 Gets Biggest Design

We finally got a good look at Android 12 and its new lock screen, notifications, and color redesign at Google I/O. Here’s what you need to know.

Google’s Android 12 operating system, which was fully unveiled Tuesday at the Google I/O developer conference, represents the most significant design change in the OS’s history, with personalizable color palettes, updated notifications, and faster, battery-saving performance.

During the Google I/O keynote, Sameer Samat, vice president of Android, stated that there are now more than 3 billion active Android devices worldwide. Android 12 is now available as a public beta (here’s how to download Android 12), with a general release expected in September. The new features of Android 12 may vary depending on your device. When you select your wallpaper on Google Pixel phones, a feature known as color extraction will be activated.

Another aspect of the redesign involves more fluid motions, animations, and touch responses. You’ll notice an always-on display and more adaptive notifications; for example, when you dismiss them on the lock screen, the clock will become larger, letting you know you’re up to date.

How To Get Money From Your YouTube Channel

How To Get Money From Your YouTube Channel

Commonly known as the YouTube Partner Program, or YPP for short, you’ll need to hit all four requirements before your channel will be accepted.

Let’s start with the 1,000 subscribers. This one is pretty straightforward, it doesn’t matter how long it takes you to get to 1,000 subscribers, once you hit that milestone, you’ve reached that requirement.

As well as 1,000 subscribers, you also need 4,000 hours of Watch Time on your videos over the last 12 months.

There is some confusion with this one, so let me try and clarify that. First of all, this is not about how much video content you, the YouTube creator watch.

This is all about how much video content is watched on your channel from people all across the world.

It’s all those hours of video that people have watched on your channel in the last 12 months (from any given date).

You could well have well 4,000 hours of Watch Time over the lifetime of your channel, but it’s only the last 12 months that count for YouTube Partner Program requirements.

Simple Steps On How To Get Google's Phone App To Announce Who's Calling You

Google has updated the Google Phone app with a new feature: Caller ID announcement. With enabled, the app can announce who’s calling when your phone rings.

The feature, first spotted by 9to5Google, is now rolling out. Here’s how to set it up when it becomes available to you.

How to set up Caller ID announcement

When setting up Caller ID announcement in Google’s phone app, you can reportedly decide whether you want it to announce who is calling every time the phone rings, only while you’re wearing a headset, or never, according to 9to5Google.

To enable the new feature, follow these steps:

  1. Open the latest version of the Google Phone app
  2. Go to Settings > Caller ID announcement.
  3. “Announce caller ID” will be disabled by default.
  4. Select it and choose between:
    • Always
    • Only when using a headset
    • Never

Where is this feature available?

It appears to be rolling out to English-speaking users in the US. We’ve contacted Google for confirmation about whether it will come to the UK.

Note: If you haven’t updated the Google Phone app, check the Play Store and be sure to do that, or else you might not see the feature available yet.

Why is Google rolling out this feature?

Simply put, it’s an accessibility feature that can help people with visual disabilities easily determine who is calling them.

Check out Google’s Caller ID support hub. The company hasn’t updated it yet with the new feature, though we suspect it will soon.

How To Block Unknown Callers On Your iPhone

There are plenty of features within the iOS software on your iPhone that allows you to perform various tasks.

Some of these are easy to find, such as turning Bluetooth or Wi-Fi on, while others, like closing down all Safari tabs at the same time or using the Apple logo as a secret button, are a little more hidden.

Silencing unknown callers falls into the latter camp. And when we say silencing, we don’t mean silencing the call once it has started ringing, we mean silencing unknown callers and numbers so they don’t ring at all and are sent to your voicemail.

Here’s how to silence unknown callers on your iPhone so you know when your iPhone rings, it’s someone you know.

How to stop your iPhone ringing for unknown numbers

To silence your iPhone so it doesn’t ring when an unknown caller or number rings you, follow the steps below.

It’s worth noting that when you turn this on, you’ll still see the call appear in your Recents List and you’ll get a notification pop up saying “silenced call” with the number, but your iPhone won’t ring when the call comes through and the caller will be sent to your voicemail.

  • Open Settings on your iPhone
  • Scroll down and tap on Phone
  • Tap on ‘Silence Unknown Callers’
  • Switch the toggle to on

How to block a number on iPhone

If you want to block a specifc number so they aren’t just silenced, but they aren’t able to call you, FaceTime you, email you or message you, follow the steps below:

  • Open the Phone app on your iPhone
  • Tap on the Recents tab at the bottom
  • Tap on the ‘i’ next to the number you want to block
  • Select ‘Block this Caller’ at the bottom of the contact card

If you want to block a contact you have saved on your phone, follow these steps below:

  • Open the Settings app on your iPhone
  • Scroll down and tap on Phone
  • Tap on Blocked Contacts
  • Select ‘Add New…’
  • Search for the contact you want to block

 

How to see your Blocked Contacts on iPhone

To see which numbers you have blocked on your iPhone, follow the steps below:

  • Open the Settings app on your iPhone
  • Scroll down and tap on Phone
  • Tap on Blocked Contacts
    A list of your Blocked Contacts will appear
    To unblock a contact, press Edit in the top right and select Unblock
