If you have a Nokia device, you can download the "Play To" Beta.

 

It should give you playback to most devices. XBox probably not due to MS being retards with the way they deployed the service -_-

 

I know, did you not read my post. play to requires you to play the media in the play to app. You can't share from the media gallery apps or such with the play to app.

I didn't check the whole thread, but I was just wondering if anyone else has noticed a big jump in battery life with GDR3. Since I installed it, I feel like my battery has about 50% more life remaining at the end of my day.

On what device?  I haven't been looking much at mine so I haven't noticed anything tbh.  I have an HTC 8X.

I'm using GDR3 on my Lumia 520, never had any issue. However, I noticed that Word, PowerPoint and Excel still have their Office '10 icons in the app switcher. :)

So it's not pulling the icons from the live tile?

hello, I have an unlocked (at least I believe it is unlocked and unbranded) htc8x... The store I got it from said that they imported it from the UK. Problem is, I still haven'g got the gdr3 update, and when I check for it, I get the message that my phone is up to date. I haven't got the gdr2 either. Should I start worrying that there is something wrong with my phone, and how can I check????

 

thanks

920 definitely got a huge battery bump with this update.

 

My battery life is way better than it was previously.

 

It's some how managed to break my app updates again though :|

Tbh, except for the ability to close apps from the task switcher I really don't notice anything at all being different on my phone. I hope that there are more noticeable changes when Nokia releases the Lumia black update.

Hi, just to let you know you have to download the Windows Phone Update 3 preview for developers app from the store and install that first. Then it will prompt you to check for updates. This is a preview, not a final build, so it may have glitches and may void your warranty.

I believe Verizon has started to push out GDR3/Update 3 for the HTC 8X.

As far as I know, it is final build.

Nokia still hasn't even updated their updates website yet. Looks unlikely that this'll get general distribution by this year.

The ROM is out there, just not deployed yet :) 920 is due in February on Telstra :o

So I have the official Black update on my phone instead of the "beta" now, which is good because the last beta update cause my phone to reboot a lot. anyway the black update is awesome, battery time is massively improved, and I mean massively.

I'm on the dev preview still, because the 521 hasn't gotten the updates yet. What are the version numbers (OS, firmware, etc) for those with Black and what is the application version of extras+info  (under more info at the bottom) for those with "Black"?

 

BTW, I have the folder app running even without Black.

      Fourth One UI 3 beta build for the Samsung Galaxy S20 series brings camera improvements
      by Abhay Venkatesh

      Samsung has begun rolling out the fourth Android 11-based One UI 3 beta build for Galaxy S20 users enrolled in the beta program. While the changelog for the update does not explicitly mention any specific enhancements, folks over at SamMobile report that the changes include improvements to the Space Zoom feature that leads to clearer images at the 100x digital zoom level on the S20 Ultra and a new UI for the screen resolution picker.

      The South Korean giant debuted the Space Zoom feature with the Galaxy S20 Ultra which was made possible by the periscope camera that debuted in the device. The latest update seems to improve the performance of the camera by making text in images more legible at higher zoom levels, in addition to other overall enhancements.

      Along with the camera improvements, another small change comes in the way of a new UI for the screen resolution setting (spotted by a user in XDA Developers’ forums) that now offers a preview of a cropped section of an image to denote the difference between the resolution options.

      The fourth beta is beginning to roll out to users in Germany first but is expected to devices in more markets sooner than later. You can head to Setting > Software update > Download and install to check if you have the update ready to be served to your S20 enrolled in the beta program.

      Samsung is expected to roll out One UI 3 to the S20 series by the end of this month. With the release nearing launch, it is less likely to see any major changes make it to the Android 11-based skin. Major changes being made to the skin include improvements to the UI, in-box apps, smarter Bixby routines, and much more. You can head here to check out our overview of the top features in One UI 3.

      Galaxy Note20 series One UI 3 beta with Android 11 registrations now open in the US
      by Rajesh Pandey



      Samsung has started accepting applications for the Galaxy Note20 and Note20 Ultra's One UI 3 beta program in the United States. The company had launched the public beta program for the Galaxy S20 lineup in the United States earlier this month.

      As of now, Samsung is only accepting applications from Galaxy Note20 or Note20 Ultra owners who have the Sprint, T-Mobile, or the unlocked variant of the device. If you want to try out the upcoming One UI 3 update on your Note20 now, you should send your application to Samsung using the Samsung Members app. The slots are limited so if you are interested, send your application as quickly as possible.



      The first public beta One UI 3/Android 11 build for the Galaxy Note20 and Note20 Ultra should start rolling out in the coming days as well. Whenever the build does land though, it won't be too different from the One UI 3 build that's already available for the Galaxy S20 series in the United States.

      Samsung is debuting a number of new features in One UI 3 including improved widget support in Always-on Display mode, enhanced Samsung Keyboard and Internet app with new features, more powerful Bixby Routine, and more.

      Samsung should expand the One UI 3/Android 11 beta testing program for the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note20 to other countries like India, Germany, Poland, China, the United Kingdom, and more.

      Samsung Galaxy S20's One UI 3.0 public beta program launching soon
      by Rajesh Pandey



      Samsung detailed its One UI 3.0 skin earlier this month and then opened a pre-beta for developers shortly after. Now, a beta manager in Samsung's community forum in South Korea has confirmed that Samsung will soon start the One UI 3.0 public beta test for the Galaxy S20 series.

      While the beta manager did not mention any date, it is likely that we will see the first One UI 3.0 beta for the Galaxy S20, S20+, and the S20 Ultra launch in the first half of October. The company has already confirmed that the One UI 3.0 public beta program will be available in South Korea, the United States, China, Germany, India, Poland, and the United Kingdom.

      One UI 3.0 comes with enhanced system apps, an improved permissions manager, smarter Bixby Routine with additional conditions and trigger options, and more. You can find the change-log of the developer beta of One UI 3.0 here.

      Going by Samsung's previous track record, the company will likely start the One UI 3.0 public beta program for the Galaxy Note20 series within weeks of the program launching for the Galaxy S20 series as well.

      To join the One UI 3.0 public beta program, Galaxy S20 owners will have to use the Samsung Members app. The program will have limited slots so make sure to join it as soon as it goes live in your region.

      Marvel's Avengers PC version features and system requirements released
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      The Marvel's Avengers title that's being developed by Crystal Dynamics and Eidos-Montréal is only a month away from releasing, and prospective PC players finally received word today on what sort of hardware does the game require to get a smooth experience. Plus, PC specific features were also detailed today.

      Here are the minimum and recommended system requirements, which paints a rather well-optimized experience:

      Moreover, a 30GB optional high-resolution texture pack will be made available to all PC players from day one, which should account for the higher space requirements in the recommended specification. Describing the texture pack, the developer said that while using it, "forests will feel lusher, the tundra more frigid, and AIM facilities all the more sinister to really bring the experience to life."

      Ultra-wide resolution and multi-monitor display support were also confirmed, alongside unlocked frame rates and configurable keyboard and mouse controls.

      PC players will be able to jump into the upcoming three-day beta weekends on Steam - which come with access to single-player and co-op missions - starting from August 14 for pre-order owners, while the open beta will kick-off on August 21. Participants will even be able to download and test out the high-resolution texture pack during the beta. More information regarding the beta can be found on this FAQ page set up by the developer.

      EA's Origin client is getting a redesign, beta coming soon
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      In the world of PC game clients, it is now EA's turn to upgrade its own service. The Origin client is being rebuilt behind the scenes to offer a more modern experience, and a beta for it will soon be kicking off, though it will be gated behind Origin Access at first.

      There is now an Origin Beta EA page that offers a glimpse at what the new client will look like. Keep in mind that this could be an early mock-up and the actual release may look different. As seen in the image above, there are some heavy similarities to the old client, such as having two sidebars, but what's displayed on them and the overall design has changed.

      It's apparent that a much darker color scheme will be coming to client with the beta, shedding the largely white and gray design that's available currently. Meanwhile, the left sidebar looks to be losing the global search functionality, and the usual cluttered offering of links is being condensed to simply displaying Browse and My Collection. A new 'Recently Played' section now occupies this sidebar too, joined by a playtime monitor and the familiar download queue at the bottom.

      The right sidebar looks pretty much identical to the friends list that's being offered in the current client, though like everything else, it has become much darker. However, it may be losing the minimize and popout abilities, as those buttons are nowhere to be seen in the new client's promo image.



      The Origin logo and lettering is being changed as well, now coming in with a vibrant reddish pink color, fully capitalized wording, along with less pronounced pointy bits on the logo symbol itself - as seen on the top client image. Moreover, aside from the client, the Origin store itself seems to be taking the darker color scheme on board, while also going for a cleaner tile approach to displaying its wares.

      The new Origin Beta is slated to roll out in the coming weeks, and Origin Access subscribers can now sign up to participate - if they haven't already received an invite through email. Once testing starts, it will be interesting to see what changes and new features the beta version will bring to the software, other than a change in look.
