Updated Skype demonstrated that it does indeed exist as a separate entity within Microsoft by bringing SMS functionality to its Insiders a week after something similar was flung out to Windows Insiders.
Trailed a few weeks agoSkype's SMS Connect has now begun to roll out to lucky owners of Android phones running version 8. Users must guys skype be enrolled in the Skype Insider programme in order to receive the new toys. The new functionality allows PC or Mac users guys skype read and reply to and group SMS chats, receive MMS content and send new messages from their desktop or rather, the Skype app on their desktop. If that all sounds rather familiar, it's because Microsoft emitted nearly identical abilities in the form of the Your Phone app last week to Windows Insiders, except with the almost entirely pointless function of being able to see the last few photos taken by the paired phone.
Unlike the Skype incarnation, Your Phone does not support MMS messages, although with the costs inflicted by carriers on users trying to use the service, this is probably no bad thing.

There is no indication of when the functionality will become generally available, but judging by past performance, it'll likely be when Your Phone is also complete unless Microsoft's left arm manages to spot what its right arm is doing and perhaps cut back on some of the duplication of effort.
The Register contacted Microsoft to find out what strategy was driving the development of two Android SMS integrations. Microsoft got in touch to let us know: "The Windows Insider Program and Skype Insider Preview were created to enable Microsoft to test different features and functionality, which will influence future versions of Windows and Skype. We regularly test new features and changes to existing features to guys skype what resonates well with our fans.

Facebook is abandoning a project to develop a brain-computer interface BCIeven as the researchers it funded have showcased the device helping someone with severe speech loss communicate with nothing more than thought. In a paper published in The New England Journal of Medicine Facebook-funded researchers showed how a "neuroprosthesis" could be used to restore speech in a subject who had lost the ability more than 16 years ago, following a stroke — simply by picking up the intent to speak and transcribing it into words.
UK government has admitted it is in the dark about how many citizens have downloaded the NHS Test and Trace App or switched off their Bluetooth that renders it obselete.

One of the startups that caught United's eye is Heart Aerospace.

Column A colleague was recently required to spend 10 days in a public-health-mandated quarantine after authorities used credit card receipts to determine he'd visited a location that had also hosted a known coronavirus case. Had he paid in cash they would never have found him at all because he'd also been slack and not ed into the establishment where he was potentially exposed using the requisite QR code.
Fortunately, they found him. Even more fortunately, he hadn't been infected. As he guys skype out his quarantine, he meditated on how he'd been poked by the pointy end of guys skype continuing argy-bargy between public health and personal privacy — realising that his data trail gave anyone who bothered to look a complete snapshot of his private life.
Feature The National Museum of Computing and Centre for Computing History have finally reopened with the relaxing of coronavirus restrictions so The Register paid both a visit to see what had and had not changed. BT is going to wind down 3G connectivity by as it looks to increase its 4G and 5G coverage across most of the UK by The lack of 3G shouldn't be too much of a pain because by that point, most people will have a 4G or 5G-capable handheld. The telecommunications giant said less than two per cent of data traffic over its EE network used 3G in March, and dropping 3G will free up bandwidth for 4G and 5G.
