Classic music player, Winamp may return as a streaming service

Application Winamp another major overhaul will take place soon. The site of the music player is preparing a version “for the new generation” and, apparently, it will be very different from the original project that popularized it in the late 1990s – early 2000s.

Radionomy, a software developer, is once again trying to bring Winamp to the music market, but the contours of the new program are still unclear. The new app, besides being modern, seems to have a different offering, which is closer to a full-fledged streaming service than a local file player.

What raises suspicions about this new model is the app’s relationship with content creators. The platform will help artists keep in touch with fans and ensure “fair returns” in the process – a feature that only makes sense if they plan to become a competitor in the streaming segment, alongside shows like Spotify, Tidal, Deezer e Apple Music.

Information about the new Winamp is scarce at the moment, so it remains to await more detailed information on the software. Currently, any user can apply to test the beta version of the program, but there are no dates or forecasts for the testing period.

The come and go of Winamp

Released in 1997, Winamp quickly became popular in the music industry – in a short time, the application has registered over 3 million downloads. Later updates continued to be successful until 2002 when one of the builds was not well received by the community. Over time, the program gave way to other solutions, and in 2013 its support ended.

However, in 2014, the rights were acquired by Radionomy, which has released only one update since then. In October 2018, Winamp returned to the headlines with version 5.8 release for Windows 10. The program retained the original DNA of the program, but improved: it became the control center for all audio files, both tracks saved on the PC and those controlled by streaming services – the idea, unfortunately, did not get revenge.

WhatsApp Update Allows Temporary Messages by default - current

An update was released yesterday for the instant messaging program WhatsApp (6), which will add temporary messaging features for new conversations by default.

According to the company, the new feature could be changed by users, who will determine how long messages are available in history. Available options: 24 hours, 7 days, 90 days, or disabled – while the messages remain available at all times.

Meta’s WhatsApp, previously Facebook, said in a statement that the change is aimed at improving privacy and ensuring that users can have “direct conversations.”

“Our mission is to connect the world with privacy. As our conversations increasingly take place in the digital world, we know how special it is to just sit with someone and talk in private, knowing that at this moment everything is just between you. The freedom that exists in the opportunity to open up, to speak frankly with confidence that this conversation will not be recorded or saved forever is priceless, ”the note explains.

Users who accept the new standard will be notified of the feature activation in a notification that will be at the top of conversations. Both recipients and senders will be notified of the length of the messages.

The temporary message function can also be used on media files such as videos, photos and audio files. The function, however, has already been performed earlier.

Halo Infinite prevents you from repeating campaign missions in a single save • Eurogamer.pt

Update: 343 says this will be implemented at a later date.

Update

343 Industries has confirmed that it is working on a feature that will allow campaign missions to be replayed in the same save.

343’s Paul Crocker confirmed to The Verge that they don’t have a date to report yet, but are working on it.

“We want to have a replay function that works well, and when you have more open play, it gets more complex,” Crocker confirmed.

Original

The Halo Infinite campaign is almost here, and Microsoft has confirmed that one of the features that existed in previous games in the series will not be available in this new release.

Like games like Destiny, and unlike previous Halo games, Infinite takes you to the open world and prevents you from repeating campaign missions in a single save. If you lose any of the collectibles, you can return to the mission location in this open world to retrieve it, but in the case of the first two missions, you will have to create a new save.

In statements to PolygonMicrosoft confirmed that this option is missing from Halo Infinite in the traditional way, which, through a menu, allowed you to repeat missions, select difficulty, and activate skulls.

“After the game is over, you have the option to continue exploring the scene, but for missions like the first two, where you are not yet in the ring, you cannot replay in the same game file.”

Microsoft makes it clear that you can collect audio files, hunt for targets and get what you missed, but you cannot repeat campaign missions in the same save.
