Your WhatsApp backups on Google Drive and iCloud can now be encrypted end-to-end
by Usama Jawad
Although WhatsApp has supported end-to-end encryption of chats for the several years, this capability does not cover cloud backups, which are uploaded in an unencrypted state. The Facebook-owned chat app clearly notes in its backup settings that "Messages and media backed up in Google Drive are not protected by WhatsApp end-to-end encryption" on WhatsApp for Android.
That said, we know that the company has been testing encrypted cloud backups for well over a year, and after making its way to WhatsApp beta a few months ago, the capability has finally started rolling out generally.
Starting from today, users will have the choice to end-to-end encrypt their backups before they are uploaded to Google Drive or iCloud. WhatsApp has proudly boasted that no other global messaging service of this magnitude provides this capability to its customers.
Despite offering this feature which ensures that neither WhatsApp nor a cloud service provider can read your messages, encrypted chat backups is still an optional layer of security. This is because there are a couple of caveats to be aware of. Backups can be encrypted end-to-end using a password of your choice or a 64-bit key, however, if you lose access to your chats due to some mishap and forget your encryption key too, there is no way to restore the backup. Even WhatsApp won't be able to initiate this process since it claims that it doesn't get access to your key at all.
It appears that this capability is rolling out in a staggered manner since we don't have it on our devices yet. You can head over to Settings > Chats > Chat backup > End-to-end Encrypted Backup to check whether you have the feature yet. You can also utilize our brief guide to configure encrypted cloud backups.

Google is countersuing Epic Games with Apple's legal tactics
by Karthik Mudaliar
During the trial against Apple last month, Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers stated that Epic had breached its developer contract when it activated the hidden code within Fortnite on the iPhone and iPad that violated the App Store rules. Now, Google is countersuing Epic Games based on the same legal front.
Google, in its 43-page filing [PDF], reinstated how Epic had similar hidden code for the same game which was distributed via the Google Play Store last year. This broke the contract that led Google to remove the game from its store. Google further added that Epic, with its campaign, intended to villainize and harm Google, while distracting people from Epic's breach of contract.
According to CNET, a spokesman from Google said that Epic "entered into a legal agreement with Google with which it never intended to comply" and that its actions "have put its own users at risk, have harmed Google, and are deserving of relief from this Court."
Last year, Epic sued both Apple and Google in an argument that both of the big tech firms are too controlling of their respective app stores, and that they put restrictions on what type of apps can be offered through them. Both the companies also collect up to 30% commission from in-app purchases. This led to Fortnite getting removed from both the stores last year when Epic activated hidden code that changed the way people make in-app purchases within the game.
In the Epic vs Apple case last month, the court ruled two rulings. The first ruling stated that Apple cannot restrict developers from guiding users to alternative external payment methods, while the second ruling favored Apple and said that Epic Games breached its contract when it offered direct payments to customers on iOS. Google will take this second ruling as a legal strategy with an intent to win the case against Epic.

AirPods Pro will now boost other people's voices thanks to a firmware update
by Usman Khan Lodhi
Earlier this week, Apple released a firmware upgrade for its second-generation AirPods, AirPods Pro, and AirPods Max. The AirPods Pro earphones will have the new Conversation Boost, thanks to the update. It's part of what the Cupertino firm revealed at WWDC 2021. Another notable addition during this update is the ability to find AirPods Pro and AirPods Max using the Find My app.
The firm designed this feature to assist people with mild hearing impairment to better engage in conversations. The feature makes use of the earbuds' beam-forming microphones, which increase the volume of the person talking in front of you, so you can hear them clearly. Additionally, it features the ability to reduce ambient noise.
Updates for AirPods Pro are installed automatically, so there's no way to force them. Connecting your earphones to an iPhone or iPad should automatically install the latest firmware version in a short duration of time. To check if your AirPods Pro firmware has been updated to the latest version (version 4A400), follow these steps:
Once updated, the feature can be turned on by an iPhone or iPad running iOS 15 or iPadOS15 by heading over to the Settings app, tapping Accessibility, Audio/Visual, and Headphone Accommodations options in this order. Then, the user needs to scroll down and select Transparency Mode and toggle on Conversation Boost.
