oppo vooc flash charging tech to cars

Oppo has announced a new project namely the Flash Initiative to expand its proprietary VOOC flash charging technology to automobiles, public spaces, and charging accessories. During the Mobile World Congress Shanghai (MWCS) event earlier today, the Chinese tech giant announced a partnership with Anker, FAW-Volkswagen, and NXP Semiconductors to expand its charging solution across various sectors. Since its launch in 2014, Oppo’s VOOC technology has been introduced in over 30 smartphone models to deliver an ultra-fast charging experience.

The company in a statement stated that each partner company would work with proprietary technical designs developed by Oppo under the Flash Initiative. “Technology certification laboratory CTTL (China Telecommunication Technology Laboratory) will test and certify any partner products made with VOOC flash charging technology,” the company added. As one of China’s largest tech certification labs, the CTTL has also granted Oppo a five-star rating for its VOOC Flash Charging tech. Both Oppo and CTTL have further developed a technical paper on flash charging technology.

Meanwhile, Anker, which is known for its compact GaN charger, said that the company, in partnership with Oppo, would bring flash charging to millions of people. FAW-Volkswagen, the joint venture between FAW Group and Volkswagen Group, will incorporate Oppo’s proprietary tech into Volkswagen cars made in China, giving automobile drivers and passengers power on the go. Chip manufacturer NXP Semiconductors, on the other hand, will bring VOOC flash charging to smart and connected solutions designed for sectors including smart cities and industrial, automotive, mobile, and smart homes.

Currently, Oppo’s 50W Mini SuperVOOC charger which is 82.2mm long and 10.05mm thick, can charge smartphones, tablets and even laptops. The 65W AirVOOC wireless charger can fully power a 4,000mAh phone battery in 30 minutes, while the 125W flash charger can do the same in just 20 minutes, the company claims. Each VOOC-based charger claimed to use low voltage charging with a dual-cell structure. The temperature sensors in the charger automatically regulate voltage and dissipate heat.

WhatsApp Gets New Feature That Lets Users Mute Audio of the Video Before Sharing

on


WhatsApp has finally rolled out the mute-video feature that lets users mute the audio of videos while sharing them with others. The feature is currently rolling out to Android users and its availability for the iOS client remains unclear. The feature has been in the works for quite some time, and beta users received its access last month. Android WhatsApp users must ensure that they are using the latest version of the app to use the mute-video feature. Users can update the manually via Google Play Store.

To mute the audio of the video before sharing, users will need to tap on the speaker button below the seeker tool that allows trimming the length of a clip. The feature is similar to the mute audio option on the Instagram app that has been existing for quite some time. The latest WhatsApp feature is also rolling out to Android smartphone users in India. Though the update is not substantial, it is still useful as users can mute sensitive audio on videos that they want to share with others.

Last month, Facebook-owned WhatsApp announced that it has completed 12 years of its journey. Since its launch in 2009, the app now not only allows users to send messages or media files, but also lets them start voice and video calls and make payments via the platform. However, the messaging platform has been embroiled in controversy ever since it announced new Terms of Policy for the platform. As per the new rules, Facebook will collect and share meta-data (course location, profile name, and so on) to provide more personalised ads on other Facebook-owned platforms. WhatsApp’s new privacy policy was slated to come into effect in February but has been deferred till May. The company recently detailed what will happen to users who don’t accept its new privacy policy in an FAQ on its website. As per WhatsApp, users will still be able to receive calls and notifications, but this will only be possible for a “short time.”
