Google Maps makes it easier to share your location



Google introduced Plus Codes in Maps back in 2015 in a bid to make it easier for people to find places that don't have a physical address or are simply difficult to find. Now, the company is making it easier for the Android users to share their location using Maps' Plus Codes.

To give you a brief about the feature, Plus Codes are simple and easy to use digital addresses that have been derived from the latitude and longitude of a users' location. These codes can be used to uniquely identify any location. They work in places that haven't been mapped and they don't use country codes to identify an individual's location.

The company launched this feature in India back in 2018 to enable Maps' users to share addresses. Now, the company is bringing an update to Google Maps that makes using this feature a tad bit easier.

How to find and share your Plus Code:

Step 1: Open Google Maps App.

Step 2: Find your exact location.

Step 3: Tap on the blue dot that highlights your location.

Step 4: Now you will see the Plus Code representing your location on top of the screen.

Step 5: Use Share your Location option to share your plus code.

TRAI recommends using 11-digit long mobile numbers in India


The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) on Friday released its recommendations on "Ensuring Adequate Numbering Resources for Fixed Line and Mobile Services". As a part of that, the regulatory body has recommended using 11-digit long mobile numbers in the country.

According to TRAI, replacing 10-digit mobile numbers with 11-digit ones will lead to the availability of more numbers in the country. "Switching from 10 to 11 digits with the first digit for mobile number as '9' would give a total capacity of 10 billion numbers. With the current policy of allotment after 70% utilisation, this would suffice till India has 7 billion connections," TRAI wrote in its recommendations.

Apart from this, the regulatory body also recommended using '0' as a prefix in front of mobile numbers while calling from a fixed line connection. At present, inter-service area mobile calls from a fixed line connection can be accessed by a dialing '0 in the prefix'. However, mobile phones can be accessed from a fixed line phone without using '0' in the prefix. This, as TRAI explains, puts a "limitation that any digit which has been used as a first digit for a fixed network (for local calls) cannot be used for mobile numbers".

"By making it mandatory to access mobile numbers in a service area from a fixed network by dialing prefix '0', all the free sub-levels in levels '2', '3', '4', and '6', can also be used for mobile numbers," TRAI wrote in its recommendations.

Additionally, TRAI recommended shifting mobile numbers used for dongles from 10 digits to 13 digits.

Besides this, TRAI recommended that a new National Numbering Plan (NNP) should be issued at the earliest. "Consolidated list of short codes should be issued at the earliest," TRAI wrote in the document adding that "the consolidated list of short codes should be updated every year incorporating all withdrawals and new allocations."

Using pirated MS Office and Adobe Photoshop? Firm asked to pay Rs 30 lakh damages


The Delhi High Court has awarded Rs 30 lakh damages to Microsoft Corporation, Adobe Systems and Quest Software while restraining a company based in the national capital from using or distributing their pirated and unlicensed software.

Justice V Kameswar Rao said in the absence of any defence of the Nehru Place's firm and the magnitude of the violation carried out by the defendants, the three companies are entitled for damages and Rs 30 lakh be equally shared by them.

The high court's order came on a suit filed by Microsoft Corporation, Adobe Systems and Quest Software against a firm named 'Chetu' which provided IT services and solutions to its clients, and related parties, after they came to know that the company was using their unlicensed/pirated software programs on its computers.

The high court restrained  the defendants, their principal officers, directors, agents, franchisees, servants, and all others acting for and on their behalf are restrained from directly or indirectly using for any kind of computer related activities or otherwise, pirated/counterfeit/unlicensed softwares of the Plaintiffs.

The lawsuit said to determine the sphere of activities of the defendants, they hired an independent investigator to carry out an investigation into their activities.

During the investigation, it was found that there are around 300 computer systems at Chetu, which are operating upon software programs such as Microsoft Office and there was no installation of Open Office on any of the computer systems.

It was further revealed that 40 to 50 employees at the firm were working on software programs such as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Flash, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe CS3 and Adobe Reader.

The defendant firm claimed in the court that it was a fully licensed Microsoft certified old partner since 2003 and its use of Microsoft products is governed by the terms of the Microsoft Partner Network Agreement.

However, when the plaintiffs (Microsoft, Adobe and Quest) conducted a license check within their database, it revealed that there were no substantial licences purchased in the name of the defendant or its related parties.

TikTok rating improves in Google Play

TikTok rating on Google Play Store has fairly improved to 2.9 stars as more negative reviews have been taken down. The app's reviews have now been reduced to 20 million on Google Play.

TikTok received heavy backlash from people in India with trends to delete the app running on social media for a few days. This led to many people posting negative reviews of TikTok on Google Play and giving it the lowest possible 1-star rating. The trend may have died down but it's taking some time for TikTok's rating to come up.

Google is however helping the ByteDance-owned app by deleting millions of reviews within a span of 24 hours in some cases. A Google spokesperson confirmed to TechCrunch that it removed millions of negative TikTok reviews "as a corrective action to curb spam abuse".

Google displays app ratings based on user reviews on its Play Store. Apple also allows app ratings on the App Store but the damage isn't so bad there. TikTok has so far received 1.2 million ratings on the App Store and it's currently at 3.4 stars. TikTok is also the number one entertainment app on iOS.

TikTok receives its highest number of downloads in India. The app has so far garnered 611 million lifetime downloads from India and this accounts for 30.3% of the app's total downloads, according to data from Sensor Tower. TikTok continued to be the most downloaded non-game app globally but it was beaten by Zoom last month.

Google to start reopening offices starting July 6


Alphabet Inc's Google said on Tuesday it would reopen buildings in more cities at roughly 10% of their capacity beginning July 6 and scale it up to 30% in September, if conditions permit.

Google and its peer Facebook Inc had allowed their employees to work from home in early March following tough government-mandated restrictions to contain the coronavirus.

Google said on Tuesday it would give each employee an allowance of $1,000, or the equivalent value in their country, to expense necessary equipment and office furniture, as it expects most of them to largely work from home for the remainder of the year.

There are a limited number of employees whose roles are needed back in the office this year and they would return on a limited, rotating basis, Chief Executive Officer Sundar Pichai said in a blog post.
