Moto G 2nd Gen. Lollipop - Setting Ringtones Problem

Hey Friends, Have you updated Lollipop in Moto G 2nd Gen? Hows it?

Moto G 2nd Gen with Lollipop Update

Recently I have updated Moto G 2nd Gen. with Lollipop Android 5.0.2. Its really awesome and quick use and User Friendly but i just got one problem that it is not supports set ringtones from sd card files.

I have tried many times to change it but not succeed and after all I have just move Ring Tone from SD card to Phone Memory and Its Works.

So just wanna share with you all that if you got any problem to set ringtone from SD card, just have to copy that ringtone to phone memory and the set as ringtone. You will enjoy your Music when some one calling you. Otherwise your phone ringing only default (Bell ringtone) ;) :)

Thank you.

Now, Read Audio Clips on Facebook Messenger

Hey Friends, Hows going on?

We are already aware with Voice Messages in WhatsApp Application. Today I have read one updated news and i want to share with you that Now you can Send Audio Clips on Facebook Messenger Also.

Yeah.. Social networking site Facebook has launched a new feature for its messenger app that automatically transcribes any file sent as a voice recording and lets the people send voice clips to each other.

Facebook Messenger is receiving a sizeable update this evening, introducing thumb-happy texters into the world of real voice messaging (that thing you used to use a phone for). Now, jumping into the application and pressing on the "+" icon will pull up the usual set of messaging attachments with "Record Voice" being the newest option. The recipient can then listen to the recorded message at their leisure (this isn’t push-to-talk).

To send an audio clip, just tap the microphone icon, record the message and send.

The tool listens to the full audio clip and posts a typed version below the audio, media reports said.

The tool has been presently rolled out for a test group.

"We are always working on ways to make Messenger more useful. Facebook offers a feature that lets people send voice clips to their friends without having to type the text," said David Marcus, vice-president of messaging products at Facebook.

"Today, we are starting to roll out a small test that helps people read the voice clips they receive instead of having to play them out loud," he said in a statement.

While some would likely speculate this is Facebook challenging apps like Voxer I must say, sound quality isn't anywhere near the clarity of Voxer. Facebook Messenger voice messages sound like your typical cellular gibberish. Pity. Still, there’s no beating it if you've got your hands full and need to quickly respond to a Facebook buddy.
There’s also talk that Facebook is dabbling in VoIP capabilities for Facebookers in Canada, allowing users to place calls using their phone’s data connection as opposed to cellular voice minutes. Neato. Expect it to arrive stateside in the near future.

WhatsApp on Web

WhatsApp, the world's most popular instant messaging app, is finally available on a computer. Sort of. It is still not as simple as opening a web page and logging into an account to send messages. But it is simple enough and should satisfy millions of consumers who were rooting for web access to WhatsApp.

"Today, for the first time, millions of you will have the ability to use WhatsApp on your web browser. Our web client is simply an extension of your phone: the web browser mirrors conversations and messages from your mobile device -- this means all of your messages still live on your phone," WhatsApp noted on its website.
The feature currently won't be available for iPhone users because. "Unfortunately for now, we will not be able to provide web client to our iOS users due to Apple platform limitations," the company said.

How does it work?

Web WhatsApp

As I said, using WhatsApp on the computer is somewhat different compared to how we use other web-based instant messaging services like Google Talk.

To use WhatsApp in a web browser, take following steps:
  • Update the WhatsApp app on your phone.
  • Open web.whatsapp.com in Chrome. Other browsers are not supported for now.
  • You will see a QR code. Open WhatsApp and go into menu by pressing on three dots on the top right corner of the app.
  • From the options select WhatsApp Web
  • Point your phone's camera towards the QR code inside the browser.
  • This will pair the phone and WhatsApp data with the browser. To make sure you don't have to repeat the procedure you can check the box so that your login details are remembered.

Thank you. #KeepSharing

Google : Android SDKs available on DVD For Offline Use

I am really happy to see this post online and I just want to share also with you this good news.

Now more than ever, Google is focusing on getting more of their products into the hands of users in developing markets. Take for example, Android One. The program is based on getting sub-$150 handsets to people in the world who wouldn't normally have access to them, let alone be able to afford them. With the expansion of Android One around the world, there are going to be more developers wanting to make products using the Android SDK.

Android SDK DVD Online

Sure, the SDK is available online, but what happens if you don’t have a trustworthy or fast enough internet connection? Google now has you covered, as they’re releasing the Android SDK and more on DVD.

If you're interested in getting the kit for yourself, simply get in contact with your local Google Developer Group. They'll ship you a kit that includes a total of 30GB worth of information, including YouTube videos, Cloud Platform documentation, and much more. Here’s the list of everything that’s included in kit:

Google making the Android SDK available for offline use is absolutely a step in the right direction, as more and more developers in regions with slower internet or low data caps will need access to it in the future. Now it should be pretty easy for people all around the world to get their hands on the SDK.

OpenID 2.0 for Google Accounts is going away in April 2015

What is OpenID Connect?

OpenID Connect 1.0 is a simple identity layer on top of the OAuth 2.0 protocol. It allows Clients to verify the identity of the End-User based on the authentication performed by an Authorization Server, as well as to obtain basic profile information about the End-User in an interoperable and REST-like manner.

OpenID Connect allows clients of all types, including Web-based, mobile, and JavaScript clients, to request and receive information about authenticated sessions and end-users. The specification suite is extensible, allowing participants to use optional features such as encryption of identity data, discovery of OpenID Providers, and session management, when it makes sense for them.

OpenID 2.0 (Migration)

Google has deprecated OpenID 2.0 and will shut it down after a migration period. If your app uses OpenID 2.0, the userinfo endpoint, or OAuth 2.0 login (early version), you should migrate your app by the deadlines given in the migration timetable.

If you are looking for documentation for web applications that use the deprecated OpenID 2.0 for Google login, see OpenID 2.0 (Deprecated). For information about using the deprecated OpenID 2.0 authentication with Google Apps (hosted) accounts, see OpenID API for Google Apps accounts (Deprecated).

To get help on Stack Overflow with migrating your OpenID 2.0 app, tag your questions with 'google-openid'.

Good News: Indian government unblocks Vimeo, Dailymotion, Github and Weebly

As i have posted yesterday India blocks 32 websites, including GitHub, Internet Archive, Pastebin, Vimeo after DoT order, Today i got Good News for Internet Users especially Developers of India. :)

As per Times of India's Article The ban on four of the 32 websites enforced by the Indian government recently in an effort to curb ISIS propaganda in the country has been lifted. 

The ministry of communications and information technology issued a statement saying it has initiated action to unblock vimeo.com, dailymotion.com, gist.github.com and weebly.com. The sites can now be accessed freely. 

I am really feeling blessed with github and other sites which is working perfectly in india.

The statement also said that a "similar approach (of unblocking websites) could be considered for other involved websites on getting assurance that law of the land would be complied with." Until that happens, the remaining 28 websites will remain blocked in the country. 

The anti-terrorism squad had called for a ban on these websites as these were being used to spread jihadi propaganda. In its statement, the ministry said, "These websites work on page hosting concept. Many of these websites do not require any authentication for pasting any material on them. Other (websites allow users to) upload articles, videos or photos or to download the contents which helps to hide the identities. These websites were being used frequently for pasting, communicating such content by just changing page name or even blocking the earlier one." 

The 32 websites were inaccessible from India on BSNL and Vodafone networks. Vimeo, Dailymotion, gist.github and Weebly are accessible over the networks at present while the others remain blocked. 

The ban on the websites had created a furore on social media, with Twitter users bandying together to protest against this move by the government using the hashtag #GOIblocks.

Thanks to #IndianGovernment.

India blocks 32 websites, including GitHub, Internet Archive, Pastebin, Vimeo after DoT order

Internet users in India are starting to lose access to websites including GitHub, Internet Archive, Pastebin, and Vimeo under an order from India's DoT (Department of Telecom).

ZDnet and Times of India Artical says about 32 blocked websites including GitHub, Internet Archive, Pastebin, Vimeo.

A number of Indian users are reporting they're not able to access websites such as Pastebin, DailyMotion and Github while accessing the internet through providers such as BSNL and Vodafone.

The block was first reported by Pastebin, a website where you can store text online for a set period of time, through its social media accounts on December 19. The site posted that it was still blocked in India on the directions of the Indian government.

A number of users also posted about the blocks on Reddit threads confirming that the sites have been blocked by Vodafone, BSNL and Hathway, among others.

There are following site which is blocked in India:

It now appears that the blocks are being carried out on the instructions of DoT (Department of Telecom). The telecom body reportedly issued a notification regarding the same on December 17. The notification mentions that 32 URLs including Pastebin, video sharing sites Vimeo and DailyMotion, Internet archive site archive.org and Github.com( a web-based software code repository), have been blocked under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act, 2000. DoT has also asked ISPs to submit compliance reports. However, we have not been able to verify the authenticity of the circular.

At the time of writing this story, we could not access Pastebin, DailyMotion and Github on Vodafone 3G and our office network that has access via dedicated lines. Vodafone is not displaying any errors and is simply blocking access. However, a number of users report that they're getting an error that says 'the site is blocked as per the instructions of Competent Authority.' However, we were able to access all the websites on Airtel 3G.

As an Android Developer I just saying that it will really very big loss to all Internet Users especially IT Peoples.
