Some apps have been updated in the past with quite important news and improvements; among them, the email client Outlook gained support for a new reading feature offered by Cortana, Microsoft’s personal assistant.
Meanwhile, the Xcode, The WhatsApp Business, the app Creative Cloud from Adobe and the app DataMan have also been updated; let’s check?
Microsoft today launched a new text-to-speech feature for Cortana in the Outlook app called “Read my emails”. Basically, the option combines artificial intelligence technologies to read your most recent messages, in case you don’t have time to go through them manually.
Precisely for this reason, Microsoft said that the feature is intended to help users track their emails while doing something else. Thus, Cortana summarizes your emails and also informs you of any changes to your calendar (if Outlook is integrated with the iOS calendar).
It is important to note that Cortana will only read emails from the “Inbox Highlights”, in addition, the feature is available, initially, only in the United States and for iOS devices.
Version 11.6 (8.1 GB) Requires macOS 10.15.2 or superior
The main novelty of this update to Xcode (Apple’s integrated development software for creating apps) is support for the company’s latest operating systems, including iOS 13.2, iPadOS 13.2, tvOS 13.2, watchOS 6.1 and macOS Catalina 10.15.1.
In addition, since version 11.0, Xcode offers compatibility with version 5.1 of the Swift language.
The commercial version of the popular Facebook messenger has also been updated with some specific improvements / news, such as the ability to use tags to organize your contacts and conversations, and find them more easily.
Adobe Creative Cloud
Adobe has also updated its Creative Cloud app and introduced a set of new fonts that can now be installed directly on the iPhone / iPad by the manager. In addition, the software is now compatible with iOS Dark Mode.
To install CC fonts, simply open the app and access the new “Fonts” tab – most options offer a variety of sizes. When choosing a font, just tap the “Install” button and it will be installed on all your devices connected with the same Adobe account.
It is worth remembering that when accessing the list of fonts downloaded on iOS / iPadOS, the system will not differentiate those available by default from those downloaded by third-party software. If you don’t see an installed font, it’s likely not yet compatible with iOS custom options.
The DataMan mobile data manager, created by developer Johnny Ixe, has been updated with support for managing multiple plans. With that, it is now possible to add multiple services to track the data consumption of each of them in real time, which is great for users of iPhones with Dual SIM.
To add more plans, simply access the menu by dragging the main screen to the left and touching the option Data plan »Add new plan.
