Amazon launches Chime video conferencing app for Android, iOS, macOS and Windows. Amazon Web Services, Inc., an Amazon.com company, today announced Amazon Chime, a new unified communications service that makes meetings easier and more efficient than ever before.

Amazon Chime is a new unified communication service that is designed to make meetings easier and more efficient than ever before. Amazon Chime lets you start high-quality audio and video meetings with a click. Once you are in the meeting you can chat, share content, and share screens in a smooth experience that spans PC and Mac desktops, iOS devices, and Android devices.

Because Amazon Chime is a fully managed service, there's no upfront investment, software deployment, or ongoing maintenance. Users simply download the Amazon Chime app and start using it within minutes.

Features:
On-Time Meetings - You no longer need to dial in to meetings. There's no need to enter long meeting identifiers or equally long passwords. Instead, Amazon Chime will alert you when the meeting starts, and allow you to join (or to indicate that you are running behind) with a single click or tap.
Meeting Roster - Instead of endless "who just joined" queries, Amazon Chime provides a visual roster of attendees, late-comers, and those who skipped out entirely. It also provides broadly accessible mute controls in case another participant is typing or their dog is barking.
Broad Access - Amazon Chime was built for mobile use, with apps that run on PCs and mobile devices. Even better, Amazon Chime allows you to join a meeting from one device and then seamlessly switch to another.
Easy Sharing - Collaborating is a core competency for Amazon Chime. Meeting participants can share their screens as desired, with no need to ask for permission. Within Amazon Chime's chat rooms, participants can work together and create a shared history that is stored in encrypted fashion.
Clear Calls - Amazon Chime delivers high quality noise-cancelled audio and crisp, clear HD video that works across all user devices and with most conference room video systems.

Amazon Chime Editions
Amazon Chime is available in three editions:
Basic Edition is available at no charge. It allows you to attend meetings, make 1 to 1 video calls, and to use all Amazon Chime chat features.
Plus Edition costs $2.50 per user per month. It allows user management of entire email domains, supports 1 GB of message retention per user, and connects to Active Directory.
Pro Edition costs $15.00 per user per month. It allows hosting of meetings of up to 100 people.

Amazon Chime Pro is free to try for 30 days, with no credit card required. After 30 days, you can continue to use Amazon Chime Basic for free, for as long as you'd like, or you can purchase Amazon Chime Pro for $15.00 per user per month. There is no upfront commitment, and you can change or cancel your subscription at any time.

From there the user can mark up the content they captured quickly in the app - they can draw on it freely, add text, or even add stickers to the Notable to help call attention to something specific, or express themselves. Once the Notable has been created, the user can quickly share it to their friends via the Android share framework.

Use-Cases:

+ Take a picture of a funny moment, add a quick caption and share it with all of your friends on Facebook.
+ Take a picture of a household item that you need to replace, add a quick caption or note and save to Evernote or your favorite Tasks app to remind you later.
+ Create simple photo collages with Notable by adding multiple photos to a single Notable and share it with your significant other.

MediaTek debuts Helio P25 processor for dual-camera smartphones. MediaTek today announced the launch of its MediaTek Helio P25, the newest addition to the MediaTek Helio P series mobile processor family.

MediaTek Helio P25 is designed to offer premium quality imaging, high-end camera features and other innovative photography technology that takes full advantage of today's dual camera smartphones. Helio P25 is a marked evolution of the successful MediaTek Helio P series-including MediaTek Helio P10 and P20-by combining dual-camera support with power-saving technology and advanced multimedia capabilities.
 
With its range of hardware image signal-processing (ISP) features, MediaTek Helio P25  puts advanced camera effects at user fingertips, including shallow depth-of-field - typically associated more expensive lenses - and high performance auto exposure that lets users capture the highest quality images in any lighting scenario.
 
The MediaTek Helio P25 innovative 12bit Dual ISP offers:
Pioneering Resolution: Up to 24MP single camera or 13MP+13MP dual camera
Dual Camera-optimized: Color + Mono de-noise and real-time shallow DoF bokeh
High Dynamic Range: Video HDR with full preview
High Performance Auto Exposure: Turbo 3A to accelerate AE convergence speed by 30-55%
 
By adopting a 16nm FinFET process node, MediaTek Helio P25 offers up to 25% better power efficiency. The Octa-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor clocked at up to 2.5GHz, delivers more power while using less energy than competing solutions. On the graphics side, MediaTek Helio P25 benefits from the recent ARM Mali-T880 dual GPU clocked at up to 900MHz, perfect for demanding video and gaming applications.
 
The newly released chipset supports enhanced uploads in LTE (up to 64QAM uplink for LTE-TDD mode) and has advanced power efficiency features, including compatibility with MediaTek's Envelope Tracking Modulator to deliver more processing power and less heat.
 
MediaTek Helio P25 further drives next-gen technology by supporting low power double data rate random access memory (LPDDR4x) up to 6GB, which improves bandwidth by up to 70% while reducing the memory's power needs for energy-efficient multitasking, contributing to an improved user experience and more flexible device use.
 
Availability
Smartphones powered by MediaTek Helio P25 are expected to be on the market in Q1 2017.

Google announces final Android Wear 2.0 Developer Preview with iOS support. Today Google released the fifth and final developer preview for Android Wear 2.0. In this release, Google have added iOS support and included a number of bug fixes and enhancements. Apps compiled with this preview are now ready for final submission to the Google Play Store, so it's time to publish your apps. You can check out g.co/wearpreview for the latest builds and documentation, and be sure to publish your apps before the Android Wear 2.0 consumer launch in early February.

iOS Support
Since 2015, you've been able to pair Android Wear watches with iPhones, and now you can distribute your apps to iPhone-paired watches as well. To do so, just set the standalone=true flag in your watch app manifest. This lets the Play Store know that your watch app doesn't require an Android phone app, and therefore can appear in the Play Store on watches paired to iPhones. To pair your watch to an iPhone and test, just follow these steps.

<application …>
   <meta-data android:name="com.google.android.wearable.standalone" android:value="true"/>
    …
</application>

The available network bandwidth for standalone apps can be lower than expected, as the platform balances battery savings vs network bandwidth. Make sure to check out these guidelines for accessing the network, including accessing Wi-Fi and cellular networks on watches paired with iPhones.

Also with this developer preview release, Android Wear apps running on watches paired with iOS devices will be able to perform phone hand-off flows such as OAuth and RemoteIntent for launching a web page on a paired iOS device.

Uploading Your App to the Google Play Store
The final developer preview includes an update to the Wearable Support Library. Apps compiled with API level 25 and this support library are considered ready for deployment in the Google Play Store. Please note that there are no updates to the preview watch image or emulator in this developer preview release.

Other Enhancement and Bug Fixes
Navigation Drawer: Flip a flag to toggle to the single-page, icon-only action drawer, which provides faster, more streamlined navigation to different views in your app.
NFC HCE support: NFC Host Card Emulation FEATURE_NFC_HOST_CARD_EMULATION is now supported.
ProGuard and Complication API: New ProGuard configuration means complication data container classes will no longer be obfuscated. This fixes a ClassNotFoundException when watch faces are trying to access data supplied by a complication data provider.
