Android 11 Beta 2 cleans up the share menu by merging app share intents
by Rajesh Pandey
Google released the second beta of Android 11 for all compatible Pixel devices with a bunch of bug fixes and stability improvements. Among the plethora of changes, the company has also tweaked the share menu to give it a cleaner look. The move comes after Google greatly improved the speed of the share menu with the Android 10 update last year.
The company has done this by merging multiple share intents from the same app into one. So, for example, while Twitter used to show multiple share intents in the share menu -- Tweet, Direct, and Fleet -- the share menu in Android 11 beta 2 only has one Twitter share intent. To access the other intents, users will first have to tap on the Twitter button in the share menu and then select the desired intent. This is also denoted by the small drop-down arrow in the share intent of an app.
Share menu in Android 10 (left) vs Android 11 (right) This does mean that there's now an additional step for sharing content in apps with multiple share intents. However, Google is allowing users to pin specific share targets as a workaround to this problem. This can be done by long-pressing on a share intent and selecting the 'Pin' option. Pinned share options are now shown at the top of the share menu with a pin icon to highlight that they have been pinned.
Given how cluttered the share menu in Android devices tends to become due to multiple share intents from the same app, this move from Google is definitely a welcome one.
I haven't touched my network setup in a long time as it's been working with no issues for months.
Over the last week or so, I've noticed that some devices struggle to stay connected to the network. At the moment, there's a Kindle and a desktop that are struggling to stay connected.
I've no idea where to start looking into this so any pointers would be great!
I have a USG, two Unifi APs (Lite) and a D-Link switch (DGS-1100-08P).

EE will be the exclusive carrier of the new Motorola Razr in the UK
by Paul Hill
EE has announced that the new Motorola Razr will be exclusively stocked online and in its stores following a partnership with Motorola. The new Motorola Razr is a callback to the Motorola Razr from the 2000s which was a very popular flip phone. The new version also incorporates a flip design in order to house a 6.2-inch Flex View display.
Aside from the big display on the inside of the phone, there’s also an external 2.7-inch Quick View display where you can access important information. The Quick View display allows you to make calls, reply to messages, pay with a tap, control your music, take selfies, use Google Assistant, and access some settings such as turning on Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a Hotspot, and more.
Commenting on the news, Sharon Meadows, Director of Devices, Partnerships & Business Development at EE, said:
The Motorola Razr is due to launch in January 2020 for $1,500 (£1,170). EE has not announced the plans which it will sell this device on but the price announced by Motorola suggests that the plans will be pricey.

Microsoft finally adds the share dialog in latest Edge Chromium update
by Rich Woods
Ever since Microsoft started publicly testing its Edge browser that's based on Chromium, fans of Edge Spartan (classic Edge) have been pushing for feature parity. Today, the company added a heavily requested feature, the Share button.
The feature is available in both the Dev and Canary channels, although it's rolling out gradually. It doesn't actually come in the form of a new build, so checking for updates won't help.
The share dialog does exactly what you'd expect it to, allowing you to share webpages to Cortana, OneNote, Your Phone, or any other app that hooks into it.
Obviously, when building a new browser from the ground up, a key goal is to bring the new product to feature parity with the old product, not making enthusiasts feel like they're missing out on something by moving to the new one. Today's change is a step toward that goal. Presumably, when Microsoft feels that it's close enough, it will release a build in the Beta channel, which has been listed as 'coming soon' since day one.
