Now Cortana for Android beta can read your texts out loud

  Now Cortana for Android beta can read your texts out loud Cortana for Android has just made it easier to use your phone hands-free -- so long as you're a beta tester for the voice assistant on the platform, that is. Microsoft has given Cortana's beta version the power to read text messages aloud, less than a month after the stable version of the app got the ability to text messages using your voice. Combined, the two features make it possible to communicate back and forth even while you're driving, cooking or doing any other task that requires the use of both hands.

And remember , this is a unified volume setting , so even if you press the headset's Vol - button, nothing Hell, I'm just happy they finally fixed the laggy copy/paste dialog box and incoming MMS bug. My Sony Ericsson MW600 was able to control the volume on my Nexus 5 since Android 5.0.

But even if your phone Mar 7, 2018 Artem was able to get two sliders (media and ring) to appear simultaneously when But the most useful one might just be the ability to remember the volume of your Bluetooth devices. For Android devices, go to Settings > Bluetooth and select the device.

Android P is finally fixing its Bluetooth volume settings with an update that will allow the mobile OS to remember volume preferences on a device-by-device basis, according to Android Police (first spotted by XDA Developers).

Now, Android will store the last volume used on each device in a preference file and automatically set back to that the next time you connect to that device. It’s not exactly a big change, but as someone who regularly switches between blasting music through a Bluetooth speaker and listening to music on a pair of headphones, it’ll be nice to not have my eardrums blown out every time I switch between the two devices. (And yes, iOS has been able to do this for a while, but it's nice to see that Android is catching up to help protect my hearing.)

According to XDA Developers, the update has already been approved and merged into Android, so it should be rolling out in one of the upcoming developer previews for Android P, which is still expected to be publicly released sometime this fall.

Correction: Fixed original sourcing to XDA Developers, who discovered the update.

Ikea’s first Bluetooth speakers show it’s still figuring out tech .
Ikea’s been working its way into the tech space for the past few years. It started with wireless chargers, got into smart lights last year, and now it’s moving into speakers. The first two pairs of Ikea-made Bluetooth speakers went on sale earlier this month: the Eneby 20 and Eneby 30. They’re both big, minimal squares with a single dial on them for controlling the volume and turning the unit on and off. The design is pretty forgettable, though you can remove the speaker grille to get a more stylized, industrial appearance. For the most part, though, they look like they were designed to fit inside one of Ikea’s many square storage units.
