Skype getting call recording feature on Android and other platforms

Skype has been on the way out for a long time now. There are much better alternatives on most platforms, such as Google Hangouts and Discord. According to a report from The Verge, Skype will soon be getting a call recording feature on Android along with other platforms. It’s a cloud-based feature, so you can do it pretty much
anywhere that you can use Skype. It combines all screens shared in the call, along with webcams and, of course, audio.
While technically Skype supported call recording 15 years ago, this is its first true introduction. Users looking to record their Skype calls had to look towards alternatives. On Android, that proved somewhat of a difficult task years ago when screen recording
required root. Now it’s a lot easier, but built-in support for it is even better. For privacy reasons, all users in the call will be notified if a user is recording.
This new call recording feature comes as part of the brand new Skype 8.0 update, which was released today. It features a new mobile-like design on desktops and supports Twitter-esque mentions and full end-to-end encryption. 1080p video calling support has also been added, and a video call can have up to 24 people in it at one time. There’s now a chat media gallery too, where you can see all of your shared photos in a conversation.
While Skype is clearly trying to gain a foothold back into the market, is it too little, too late? Alternatives have had a long time to take off and Microsoft has only started to pay attention to it’s VoIP service in the last two years or so. With the addition of Skype Insider too, it’s clear that the service is no longer on the backburner. We’ll have to see how it fares in the coming months and whether or not the service can make a true comeback

LG’s first flexible OLED phone due before the year is out

LG plans to launch a flexible OLED smartphone before the end of the year, the company’s VP of mobile has confirmed, though it’s unclear to what extent the work-in-progress handset will actually flex. The OLED panel in question is the handiwork of LG Display according to VP of LG mobile Yoon Bu-hyun, the WSJ  reports, with the proposed device set to launch sometime in Q4. LG Display’s work on flexible OLEDs has been underway for some time, though the company’s efforts have perhaps been overshadowed somewhat by rival Samsung’s YOUM development. Last year, according to a Korea Times report, LG Display was preparing for
Flexible displays are the Future of IT Industry! A part from 4k and smart home appliances, the CES 2013 saw a lot of attention being drawn towards bendable, flexible displays. The elasticised display idea isn’t something new as we have seen hoards of device concepts being crafted around flexible, bendable and even foldable displays. These concept devices give us a futuristic feel, be it a flexible phone to be worn around the wrist or a phone that opens up to turn into a tablet or PSP-like device. But how far is this future? Nokia has been toying with the idea ever since we remember. The technology sounds very fascinating and the possibilities and the extent to which bendable displays could be used are vast and leave us spellbound. However, these have always been concepts and we haven’t seen any device materialise in the real world. There have been several technologies that were conceived in these years and all have been put to their practical use. But the bendable d
