Twitter rolls out search function in Direct Messages for Android users
by Jay Bonggolto
Twitter tested a search bar within its Direct Message feature back in 2019, addressing a long-time problem for anyone who wanted to be able to look for a specific sender. The functionality has since been launched for everyone on iOS and the web, letting them search through their private messages.
Today, the micro-blogging site announced that the DM search bar is rolling out on Android. Although it's a long time coming, the feature's expansion to Google's operating system brings with it an “improved version” of the existing capability. This means that you can look for certain content in addition to the ability to search for specific senders. And you can even search for these topics in your old messages, not just your recent conversations.
The improved capability will be available later this year. It's a welcome update that should solve the difficulty with finding months-old or years-old messages by having to sift through all of your DMs, as was the case before.
Today's announcement marks the latest update to Twitter's DM feature. Last year, the service introduced a new DM experience that's docked at the bottom right of your screen on the web. The new interface allows you to send and receive DMs without having to switch between your timeline and the Messages tab.
GitHub introduces video uploading across its platform
by Paul Hill
GitHub has announced that it’s now possible for users to upload videos across its platform. MP4 and MOV files can be uploaded in issues, pull requests, discussions, and more. The inclusion of this feature will open up new possibilities including clearer demonstrations of new features or bugs in software projects.
The firm previously released video uploads as a beta feature back in December but now it’s considered stable enough for everybody on the platform to use. Now that it’s available, all users can upload videos to help maintainers reproduce bugs, provide context on pull requests for reviewers, give a demonstration of new features currently in the prototype phase, and more.
Commenting on the ability to upload videos, Lauren Brose from GitHub said:
The ability to upload videos is also arriving with mobile support. Both the iOS and Android GitHub mobile apps are capable of uploading videos to the platform but you’ll need to update the apps to their latest versions.
Huawei P50 renders leak showing a unique camera bump
by João Carrasqueira
Official renders of the upcoming Huawei P50 series have apparently leaked, courtesy of Twitter user @RODENT950. The two images show off the camera bump and confirm that the Chinese company is once again going for a unique design compared to just about everything else.
The images show a camera bump consisting of two circles on a larger pill-shaped bump, which isn't all that new. What's more interesting is that each of these circles has multiple cameras in it, with the top circle apparently featuring three cameras, while the bottom one includes another camera sensor and what appears to be an LED flash. Another LED flash is also present outside of the two circles, and it's possible that each of them is used for different cameras.
The renders seem to be somewhat close to previously leaked real-life photos, but there are some notable differences. Those images showed two camera sensors per bump, and only one LED flash was to be found, outside the two circles. Of course, these could have been prototypes and the final design could be different.
The new images also include the Leica logo below the camera setup, which isn't much of a surprise. The two companies have collaborated on the cameras used in Huawei phones for quite some time, and in fact, Huawei has made its camera prowess a big focus with each of its phones in recent years. However, another user pointed out that the focus length of the camera setup ranges from 13mm to 90mm, suggesting that a periscope camera may not be included this time around. That may be disappointing for fans of lossless zoom, but it could also be that we're not getting the full picture yet.
Huawei has consistently made some of the most interesting-looking phones out there, particularly in regards to the camera setup. Both the Mate 30 Pro and Mate 40 Pro featured a somewhat unique circular shape for their camera layout, and it looks like the company is willing to keep experimenting.

Motorola's smartphones will soon be able to charge over the air
by Jay Bonggolto
Motorola's parent company, Lenovo, teased its concept for an air-to-air charging system that can charge multiple phones remotely earlier this year. Today, the company announced a new partnership meant to advance its goal of making that technology a practical reality.
Motorola has teamed up with GuRu to add support for over-the-air wireless charging to its smartphones. GuRu specializes in customizable, over-the-air power systems using "millimeter-wave integrated circuits, modules and proprietary Smart RF Lensing technology". The new alliance is especially interesting since Motorola typically skips adding support for wireless charging to its devices. Now, it's making a big leap by investing in a charging tech designed to juice up a phone without even placing it on a charging pad.
GuRu's RF Lensing, in particular, will be used to power Motorola's devices from across the room. The tech uses a miniature power transfer system to transmit power at long range and with precision. Beyond these pieces of information, the two companies didn't provide many details about the partnership such as when the system will be rolled out.
Motorola isn't the only company dabbling in this new space. Xiaomi made a bold move earlier this year when it unveiled the Mi Air Charge, its concept for an over-the-air charging system that would use space positioning and energy transmissions to remotely charge a device. That said, it may take some time before the technology gains wide adoption.
