Create Tab Groups in Android’s Chrome Browser

Recently, Google has been working on a lot features to increase user experience on Chrome. They have included another feature of tab group in Android’s Chrome browser. 

“Tab groups”, is one of the best features launched by Chrome as it allows users to be more organized. This feature allows you bunch up your tabs into more useful chunks rather than randomly scattering them across your browser or on your phone, on separate pages. In order to access this unique feature today, you will have to enable a semi-hidden flag in your browser.   

How to Create Tab Groups in Android’s Chrome Browser? 

The process of creating tab groups is not difficult, start by making sure you’re running the latest version of Chrome on your Android device that is updatable via the Google Play Store.  

Then, simply launch the browser and enter this into the address bar: chrome://flags 

You’ll be taken to a screen; 

Search for “Tab Grid,” tap on the drop-down for the Tab Grid Layout flag, then select the regular “Enabled” option. Then, relaunch Chrome and tap on the box to the right side of your address bar to open up a few new tabs. Now, you’ll see that they’re now organized in a grid layout.  

How do you group these tabs? 

 It’s very easy. All you have to do is to simply long-press on one and drag it over another. Repeat this process to add more tabs to your tab group. 

You can also tap into the group itself and use the “+” icon to add new tabs within it whatever fits in. 

If you want to group multiple tabs at once then, tap on the triple-dot icon in the upper-right corner of this screen and select the new Group tabs option. Then, you’ll be able to just tap on all the free tabs you want to arrange in a group, and then tap the Group button to make them become new friends. 

Finally, if you long-press on any hyperlink in a normal Chrome window, you’ll see the option to open the new tab in a group. Tap it, and the original page you were viewing will now be grouped together with the new link you long-pressed, and you’ll see icons for both at the bottom of your Chrome browser.  

This is the easy method for navigating between tabs in your group, and you can also use the “+” icon to the right to quickly add more tabs. 

If you don’t like the grid layout or tab groups, you can always disable the feature again using the same Tab Grid Layout flag as before. Simply set it to “disabled,” and your browser will revert to the way it was before.

On Windows 11, Microsoft Teams 2.0 will bring much-needed enhancements

Microsoft Teams Calling’ next iteration is expected to include a number of significant improvements and upgrades. 

Over the last 18 months, the video conferencing service has evolved to become one of Microsoft’s most significant software services as workers and customers try to keep in touch throughout the epidemic. 

Microsoft is already preparing the introduction of Microsoft Teams 2.0, which will be included in the highly anticipated Windows 11 release later this year, and will include a number of new features and upgrades. 

Messaging in Microsoft Teams 2.0 

Microsoft Teams now has a messaging feature that allows users to respond directly to messages, like how Slack does. 

Teams’ users will be able to react to specific messages or quote their own message in a response thanks to the new “quoted responses” feature. To use the functionality, simply right click on any message. It may also be accessed by hovering over a message and selecting the three-dot menu at the top of a Team’s conversation, then selecting “Reply.” 

The update, according to Microsoft, will make chatting on the Teams desktop app more engaging and intuitive, as well as make it simpler to pick up on all the relevant communications for you. 

The announcement comes just days after Microsoft resolved another vexing issue with Teams, this time involving locating specific notes or messages using the platform’s search function. 

Teams will soon launch a fully new search page that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to find the exact results you require for your company or family job. The new search results page features “a new search experience in Teams that will make discovering messages, people, answers, and files faster and more intuitive,” according to the firm. 

It goes on to state that “a new search results page delivers greater context and quicker results,” and that the tool would utilize “AI-powered relevance” based on who and what customers engage with the most in Teams and other Microsoft Office 365 email services to deliver the best results.

Microsoft has raised its Office 365 and Microsoft 365 prices

For the first time in a decade, Microsoft is raising the price of its Office 365 email and Microsoft 365 services. The price hikes will affect commercial and corporate customers of Microsoft’s software as a service (SaaS) products in the coming year, with no changes in education or consumer pricing. 

The new Microsoft price will take effect on March 1st, 2022: 

  • Microsoft 365 Business Basic (prices range between $5 and $6 per user) 
  • Microsoft 365 Business Premium (starting at $20 and going up to $22) 
  • Office 365 E1 (prices range from $8 to $10) 
  • Office 365 E3 (prices range between $20 and $23) 
  • Office 365 E5 (starting at $35) 
  • Microsoft 365 E3 (starting at $32) 

Microsoft originally released Office 365 in 40 different regions in 2011, and the business has been steadily upgrading it since then. In a blog post today, Microsoft 365 head Jared Spataro notes that these price adjustments are “the first substantial pricing modification since we launched Office 365 a decade ago.” 

They also come at a time when Microsoft has announced a record year of revenue growth, owing to cloud services such as Office 365. Microsoft has around 300 million paid Office 365 seats, thus the pricing adjustments will very definitely increase Microsoft’s revenues and income next year. 

While bigger firms have benefitted from bulk discounts and bargains over the last decade, small businesses will face the consequences of a price hike as the economy recovers from the epidemic. Microsoft Teams Calling, OneDrive, SharePoint, and To-Do are just a few of the more than 20 programmes that have been introduced to Office 365 since its introduction.

Microsoft Teams has revealed that it will erase your previous calls automatically

Users who want to listen to recordings from previous Microsoft Teams calling should not wait too long, according to the firm. 

Microsoft previously announced that the video conferencing service will destroy call records after a certain amount of time if customers did not do anything with them, such as download or listen to them. 

The business has now stated that this time limit will be set at 60 days, meaning that customers will have only a few weeks to engage with the recordings they require, or risk losing the files forever. 

Microsoft Teams deletes a call 

According to Microsoft, the 60-day restriction was established because the firm discovered that most meeting recordings are never watched again once they had passed the 60-day mark. 

Users and administrators can still alter the default expiration date, albeit it will not be available right away. 

Microsoft Teams announced plans to start automatically recording all calls in June 2021, replacing a previous procedure in which users had to opt-in to call recording. 

Organizations who need to record meeting interactions to comply with industry rules or local legislation may find this feature particularly valuable. 

Meeting participants are notified that the meeting is being recorded with a warning shown at the start of the call, with the recording accessible to download and listen to once the conversation has concluded. 

Teams’ managers can now configure meeting recordings saved on OneDrive and SharePoint designer to expire automatically, according to a new upgrade from Microsoft. 

The feature, which will be available in September, will allow admins to create a default Teams policy setting on automatic deletion, though they will be able to change the default meeting recording expiration time via a setting in the Teams Admin Portal or by editing policy attributes using PowerShell scripts. 

Microsoft Teams will be able to compete with rival services like Zoom, which has enabled call recording (and call deletion) for some time.
