Microsoft bans offensive language on Xbox and Skype

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND


An update to Microsoft’s Services Agreement, to roll out on May 1, penalizes offensive language across Microsoft products, including Xbox and Skype. It raises a few questions about what the company considers offensive and how deeply into your communications they can delve in order to investigate. Originally spotted by law student Jonathan Corbett, the changes to the Service Agreement seem to focus on Xbox Live specifically: In the Code of Conduct section, we’ve clarified that use of offensive language and fraudulent activity is prohibited.

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Skype has teamed up with TripAdvisor so you can now send travel plans and tips right inside the Skype app. It’s also got a new integration with StubHub, a platform for sporting and concert tickets, that lets you browse and share events.

Now you can just send and receive travel plans and tickets without downloading any extra apps beyond Skype.

To activate the add-ins, you have to press the plus sign button and select them from a list of options. Once using the TripAdvisor add-in, you can pick out hotels, restaurants, and other destinations to share in a chat. If you’re using the StubHub add-in, you can search for sports and music…

Microsoft is optimizing Skype for low-end Android phones

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Microsoft is rolling out an updated version of Skype for Android, one that’s optimized for devices running older versions of the OS, providing better audio and video quality for lower-end devices.

The new update will optimize the app for Android devices running versions 4.0.3 to 5.1. Microsoft says that this version “is lighter on both disk and memory consumption,” and that it’ll provide better audio and video for those devices, in addition to better performance when the connection isn’t so hot. The update will be rolled out worldwide in the coming weeks.

The approach looks a bit like what Google is doing with Android Go, a stripped down version of Android that doesn’t require as much processing power, RAM, or storage. They’re phones…

Skype expands compatibility to Android 4.0.3 and above

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Most applications have long since dropped support for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, since the version is now only used on 0.4% of all Android devices (as of February 2018). Skype dropped support for Android 4.0.3-5.1 in June 2017, with the app now requiring 6.0 Marshmallow or higher. Microsoft is now reversing that switch, by re-adding support for those versions.

On the official Skype blog, Microsoft announced that it is releasing “a new optimized version of Skype for our customers on Android devices 4.0.3 to 5.” It’s not rolling out yet, so I’m unable to test it on my KitKat-powered Galaxy Player, but the company says it is lighter on both disk and memory consumption.
