Android app can be used on Windows 10 system, special project of Microsoft

Apple's iOS or Android, there is no end to the practice of who gives more benefits to the user. Both systems offer fancy benefits. However, in some cases, Android users still lag behind Apple users. For example, iPhone apps can also be used on Apple's computer or laptop. But it is not possible to use Android app on computer or laptop in general. Of course, Microsoft also has the Your Phone app. But it is not available on all phones. This app is available on some selected smartphones of Samsung Galaxy. But this time the situation is going to change. Microsoft is currently working on a project that will allow the Android app to be used on Windows 10 systems.

Microsoft is working on the Project Latte project

Microsoft is currently working on a software solution called Project Latte. This will allow developers to bring Android apps to Windows 10. In addition, it does not require much modification of the apps.

According to Windows Central, Microsoft's Project Latte is based on the Windows subsystem for Linux (WSL). WSL will soon have support for the GUI Linux app as well as the GPU app. This will improve the performance of Android apps in Windows 10 using WSL.

However, the developers do not need to be happy to hear about this project right now. The report states that Google does not allow Play Services to be installed anywhere other than Android smartphones or devices with Chrome OS. For this reason, developers need to rely on the Play Services API to include apps in Windows 10 systems.

It is worth mentioning that Microsoft has tried to bring Android apps in Windows 10 before. The company had earlier been working on a project called Astoria for the same purpose. But unfortunately this project did not succeed. Now it remains to be seen whether Project Latte can succeed. If all goes well, Microsoft's project could come next year.

Good news for Vi's REDX plan users, choose any Netflix plan

Like other telecom companies, Vi (Vodafone Idea) also offers prepaid plans as well as postpaid plans. Among the company's postpaid plans, REDX is the most popular. The most interesting aspect of this plan is the one year Netflix subscription. However, this time users of Vi's REDX plan will get additional benefits. From now on, customers will be able to choose any Netflix plan from the MyVi app when renewing a Netflix subscription. This plan can also be changed directly from the Netflix account.

By the way, Vi's REDX plan of Rs. 1099 offers Netflix facility of Rs. 598 per year. If you register through the MyVi app, you will get a balance credit of Rs 598 for one year in your Netflix account. Users can renew Netflix subscriptions from the MyVi app as long as they are on the REDX plan.

To renew REDX's Netflix subscription after one year, open the MyVi app and go to the Plan Benefits section. Note that REDX customers will receive a 7-day window before the end of 1 year to renew a Netflix subscription. The company will request to renew the subscription via SMS and email before the deadline.

Customers who are still on the old Rs 999 REDX plan have no reason to be upset. They can also take advantage of REDX-Netflix for one year through the MyVi app. Taking advantage of REDX-Netflix will incur an exit fee of Rs 3,000 for 6 months. This fee is charged so that no one changes plans or interrupts postpaid connections in the meantime.

Those who took advantage of REDX-Netflix last year but have not renewed will be charged on a monthly basis with postpaid bills or with Netflix payment mode. Those who deactivated their Netflix accounts later with REDX-Netflix last year will also have the opportunity to renew. Netflix can be taken advantage of anew through the MyVi app.

9 Nokia laptops to be launched in India soon, will have i5 and i3 processors

After smartphones and feature phones, is HMD Global going to launch Nokia branded laptops in India this time? Nokia's nine laptops have recently received BIS certification in India. According to popular tipster Mukul Sharma's tweet, Nokia has NKi510UL82S, NKi510UL85S, NKi510UL165S, NKi510UL810S, NKi510UL1610S, NKi310UL41S, NKi310UL42S, NKi310ULST2, NKi310ULTS.

The chipset and operating system of the laptops in this series can be estimated after looking at the BIS listing. The model number of each laptop starts with NK, which indicates Nokia. Then there's the i5 / i3, which undoubtedly indicates which chipset to use on the laptop. And then having 10 means they will run Windows Ten operating system. As is clear from the listing, 5 of these laptops will come with Intel's i5 processor, and the rest will have i3 processors. Nokia has not yet commented on the matter. However, after getting BIS certification, it is clear that these laptops from Nokia are coming to the market soon.

According to the BIS listing, these laptops will be manufactured by Tongfang Limited in China. Let me inform you that HMD Global is in charge of selling Nokia feature phones and smart phones. Flipkart, on the other hand, has a strategic partnership with Nokia, and under the agreement, Flipkart develops, manufactures and distributes Nokia branded TVs in India, along with Nokia's media streaming devices. As a result, there is a question mark over who will market Nokia laptops in India, Flipkart or HMD Global.

If you look at Nokia's history, its presence in the computer and laptop business can also be noticed. Nokia Data, Nokia's computer division, released a number of computers and laptops in the MikroMikko lineup from 1980-8. However, in 1991, Nokia sold its computer arm to a British company. Then in 2009 Nokia announced the introduction of a netbook (mini laptop) called Nokia Booklet 3G. The integrated 3G modem, HD screen, fan-free design and great battery life of this netbook running on Windows 7 operating system was highly appreciated. Later, Nokia's products were not seen in the market. It remains to be seen whether Nokia will make a comeback in the laptop market this year.
