How to make Free video calls on Truecaller App

There seem to be a lot of juicy additions to Truecaller App lately. A few weeks back, I created a post on how you can send free flash messages on the Truecaller App
                        video-calls-truecaller-google-duo  
A few months back, an announcement was made by Truecaller on the addition of video calls from Google Duo.  At the time, the feature was promised "in the coming months" and it looks like those months have elapsed as the latest Truecaller update says the option is now available.
To use this feature, Both users need to have the Google Duo app installed, so this isn't some magical built-in Duo tech but it's more like a quick shortcut to launch a video call without leaving the Truecaller app. Video calls can be started from your contact's details page, the chat screen (if you're talking to them through Truecaller), and the missed call notification. The video calls will also integrate with Truecaller's call log. The service appears to be easy to disable, so you'll be able to enable or disable Duo's integration as you wish.

Read: Sliide Airtime gives free airtime for calls and internet access
The newest version of TrueCaller should be rolling out now to users on the Play Store, but it could be a while before it reaches everyone. You can give it a try for free.
Now make video calls from Truecaller using Google Duo. Video call all your friends with just one tap!
Other updates:
- Reduced memory usage and app size
- SIM indicator added to caller ID
- Added option to paste a number into dial-pad
- Fixes for right-to-left languages

5 Points to consider in taking better Photographs today

In today's cell phone driven  world, almost everyone  has a camera in their pockets at all times, and the final product is a large number of pics scattered everywhere throughout the web. Obviously, anybody can snap a photograph and upload it, however taking a decent pic is another story.

Most people assume that taking a nice picture is a very easy thing, however remember photography is no simple aptitude to ace. There are plenty of components that go into shooting a decent photo, and the same general tenets apply to any camera (in the event that you need to exceed expectations, that is.
Things are somewhat different with cell phones when contrasted with a conventional camera, however. This is the reason we are giving you an extensive instructional exercise for making the best out of your cell phone's camera. Let's begin yeah?

1. CLEAN YOUR LENS

                                      camera lens 
The primary spot to begin when attempting to take a decent picture is to clean your cell phone's camera focal point {lens}. These every now and again get to be messy and the outcomes will be a foggy picture. Each time you go to take a photo, give the lens a brisk wipe on your T-shirt first to clear away any grime.


2. COMPOSITION

                                picture composition
“composition” describes placement of relative objects and elements in a work of art. Consequently, composition is a key aspect of a good work of art. There is hardly a way to overemphasize the importance of composition. Any aspiring artist ought to give composition of his work a lot of attention. A good composition is one that has just enough detail. Too few elements is bad because it robs the work of art of necessary detail that makes correct interpretation possible. It also ruins the balance of an image. And too many elements can be very distracting as well. Good composition requires good balance. It is best to make sure all the elements present are necessary for the idea or story you are trying to pass on.
Basically, creating a picture implies organizing components inside it in a way that suits the center thought or objective of your work best. Masterminding components should be possible by really moving the articles or subjects. A decent case for this case is picture or still life photography.
Composition is a method for directing the viewer's eye towards the most imperative components of your work, now and then – in a certain request. A decent composition can make the dullest objects and subjects in the plainest of environments look like a masterpiece. Then again, an awful creation can destroy a photo totally, in spite of how fascinating the subject might be.


3. BACKGROUND

                                           picture background
The background is generally as essential as your subject. Ensure it looks great; if not, in any event keep it clean. Guarantee there is no garbage or clear disparities. Keep an eye out for purposes of getaway (diversions) that will lead your viewers far from your subject. This would incorporate splendid lights or hues, and striking objects.



4. DON'T USE FLASH

camera flash


Flash photography is quite tricky. Individuals invest years attempting to perfect it, so for most amateur users it accomplishes more mischief than good to utilize the flash. Especially if you are going to be using a single-direction, low-quality flash like the ones you find in smartphones.They will more often than not botch up your highlights, explode the shadows and make an extremely unnatural look.

I would just never utilize the flash unless i am in an exceptionally dim spot with no counterfeit lighting to offer assistance.


5. ACTIVATE TOUCH TO CAPTURE OR VOLUME BUTTON FOR SELFIES



                                       volume button
when shooting a selfie, it's very easy to drop your phone when trying to press the capture button. By activating touch-to-capture under camera settings, it's difficult to miss the trigger: it turns into the entire screen.

Then again, contingent upon which is your favored hand, it might be less demanding to press the volume controls. This alternative isn't accessible on every gadget, yet in the event that it's on your handset you ought to discover it in the settings menu under volume control capacity, or use volume control as.

Do You have an Active Antivirus Software, Firewall or Internet security? Check If Its Working

This post gives you a complete insight on an active antivirus software. These days cybercrimes just keep rising very fast leaving  many digital device  users open to various forms of attack from viruses, malware and so on. These attacks are very bad because they can make the use of our devices very frustrating .When you dont have active antivirus software these viruses get access to our systems via an unsecure internet connection or downloads.Hence, this post is aimed at tackling this security issue firmly.so, just sit back and enjoy it.

                            active antivirus software
At first, it may appear that the simplest way to see if you have an active antivirus software would be to gather up thousands of  crazy viruses, and to set them lose on a network. Then, you can go back and measure the percentage that were blocked in order to determine the effectiveness of your active antivirus software. However, these results are not foolproof since it might fail to expose critical flaws in your security.
Before attempting this kind of test, you must first check to make sure that your network security is actually working. A better way of doing this would be to test just one simple virus, and alter it in various ways to detect specific vulnerabilities.
You can get a benign test virus here. This file shouldn’t hurt your system, but it SHOULD trigger your antivirus.
Now that you have a virus for testing, you’ll also want to set up an external Linux web server, FTP server and email server to deliver the file. In order to truly test the capabilities of your security, you’ll also want to switch between different ports.
For example, you may want to set up web servers on port 80 and 242. And you may want to set up the POP server on port 110 and another on port 23 – which is normally used for Telnet.
Then, try and push the file into your network using different means, and hiding the file in different ways.
  • Try sending it as a simple email attachment.
  • Try compressing the virus into a ZIP file
  • Try making a ZIP file using a ZIP file containing the virus
  • Try to single and double ZIP the virus, and password-protecting it
  • Try unconventional compression formats like RAR or GZIP
  • Try changing the name of the file
  • Try changing the file extension so that it appears to be another type of document (.PDF, .JPG, .PPT)
  • Embed them into a document such as Word or Excel.
If you use your imagination, you could probably come up with a hundred variations. Once you’ve done this, you’re ready to start testing your active antivirus software.
Try emailing the file into your network, and also try sending it out from within your network.  Additionally, you’ll want to try sending it internally from one machine to another.
Post all of these files up on your web servers and FTP servers, and try downloading all of the files.
Set up an online message board on your web server and see if the virus files can be uploaded to the forum as an attachment. Also, try doing the same on your private, intranet if you have one in place.
Try downloading the files from other sources, such as Gmail or any other hosted applications that could potentially be used to distribute viruses.
As you grow your options, you’ll develop a wide matrix of potential vulnerabilities. Keep a spreadsheet of your results in order to spot patterns.
Once you’ve broadly secured your network against a single virus, exhaustively tested in every possible way, you’ll have much more to gain from more advanced testing.
 N.B- Always test offline, and never compromise a live, critical system.

Do you have an Apple Watch? This is how to use it as a Stopwatch

Of all the capacities the Apple Watch can play out, an often-ignored however extremely helpful choice is the stopwatch capacity. The Apple Watch's stopwatch accomplishes more than simply begin, stop, and lap.
                                apple watch as stopwatch

Go the application screen and tap the stopwatch symbol. At the point when the Stopwatch loads, you'll have four options:
Analog, Digital, Graph, and Hybrid. When you pick one, you can simply return to the selection screen by pushing down on the Watch's face until they show up.

                         apple watch menu
However, If  you ever need to return to the mode choice screen (picture right), basically push down on the Watch face until it appears.

The analog stopwatch resembles your conventional stopwatch, as was well known in the twentieth century before digital stopwatches turned into the standard.

There are two buttons at the base of the Simple watch. The green button begins the watch. When you begin timing, you can press the white button for lap times. Press the red button to stop. Once stopped, press the white button again to reset the watch.

                        analog mode of apple watch
The Analog does everything other modes do. The main thing it doesn't do is tick.

The digital stopwatch will be well known to a great many people. Once more, as with the Analog mode, press the "start" catch to start timing, press "Lap" to record your lap times, and "Stop" will clearly end the whole procedure. Once ceased, the Lap button will turn into a Reset button unless you start the watch once more.

                         apple watch as digital stopwatch
The graph mode is somewhat different, yet extremely valuable. This stopwatch is supposed to give you a visual idea of lap times by plotting them on a level line chart. Every time you press the "Lap" button, it will put a dot at that lap's time. The orange line that runs across it represents the average lap time which is good information to know.
                         graph mode of apple stopwatch
The graph mode is an incredible approach to outwardly see lap times and lap time normal.

At long last, there's the best of these three: The hybrid stopwatch comprises of the analog , digital and graph modes all in one single mode.
At the top of the Hybrid display, you see the analog functions, in the center is the digital display, and at the base you'll see the charted lap times, so you don't need to settle on a choice, you can just use hybrid and have everything in one mode.

                           hybrid mode of apple stopwatch

Using your Apple watch as a stopwatch may appear like an easy decision, yet it's not promptly evident that it even has a stopwatch capacity unless you go through the numerous included applications.

When you do utilize it for this reason, however, you'll see that it is a helpful and advantageous way to time individuals and occasions. The incorporation of four stopwatch modes implies that there's something for everybody's specific tastes and needs.

How To use Facebook without internet

This is a day we've long been waiting for – you can now use Facebook when you have no network service or on a plane. Well, sort of. A new offline Facebook function is currently being tested, with a widespread release not far away. It won't give you full access to Facebook without internet, but you will still be able to browse your stream and even post comments and status updates while offline.


The Facebook offline news feed works by caching your stream when you are connected. When your internet or data drops out, the Facebook app for Android – using its relevance algorithm – will continue to show the stories you haven't yet read so you don't just end up with a stream full of blank content. When you're connected again, the app will download posts as it normally would.

androidpit FACEBOOK i quit
Unread news feed items will still be visible offline. 

This caching idea also works for comments on posts and status updates. Even when you're disconnected in Facebook, you'll still be able to post comments on posts and updates to your profile. They'll be uploaded the next time you're connected to data again.
The ability to like and share posts while offline already exists, making it clear that Facebook is committed to keeping users in the app even without internet.
It's a pretty obvious grab for engagement, but it's actually a very handy function. From Facebook's side, the idea is to keep you in the app and using the service as much as possible, and it doesn't want a break in internet access to force you out of the app. This is the first lesson in User Engagement 101.
But it's a win from a user's perspective too. Being able to continue what you were doing online in internet dead zones is a much better experience. Those in poor internet coverage areas or with weak data connections will benefit just as much as those with generally strong connections and occasional dropouts.

With Google and Facebook both pushing harder for offline functionality in their apps, you can look forward to more and more large services offering increased offline usability.
Even as undertakings such as Facebook's internet.org and Google's Project Loon aim to deliver internet to everyone on the planet on the macro level, it's promising to see attention being paid to the microcosm of urban dead zones at the same time. 
How often are you without an internet connection on your phone? What do you do in these times? Tell us in the comments.
