Photos features required for OneDrive


I have been using both Google Photos and OneDrive as my preferred online cloud platform to store my mobile photos and videos. The OneDrive offers exclusive 1 TB storage plan and access to office suite of applications like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. The Google's Photos does not have any bundled features and there are exclusive photos features that OneDrive lacks. Following are my observations that OneDrive must address, when storing my mobile photos on both Google Photos and Microsoft's OneDrive.
  • Photos Animation: OneDrive should add new animation feature that includes similar photos or people from multiple photos taken at same location and with some minor photo enhancements
  • Photo effects: Like Google photos, OneDrive should pick random photos from the album and apply some special effects based on algorithm to make that photo standout or special for the user. 
  • Memory videos: OneDrive should make videos out of similar photos taken at same location and similar theme to ensure the user feel nostalgic about the video memories. 

Only is Microsoft addresses above concerns it can stay competitive against the mighty Google photos and retain users who have recently subscribed to its services. For more such articles, please feel free to check out the articles published in “G R Team Sites.”

Introduction of MacOS Cloud Services

The introduction of Windows 365 is going to change the physical laptop industry forever, provided the features are tweaked and customized further to meet common man standards. Windows 365 launch should be an alarming call for Apple to revamp their strategies on Mac operating system and limiting its availability only on physical MAC devices are going to hurt them badly in future. So, following are my suggestions for Apple to revamp their strategy on Mac operating system and how to stay ahead in the market competitiveness. 
  • Unified Operating system across devices: With introduction of M1 mac processors to the iPads, Apple should also focus on brining unified operating system across devices like iPhones, iPads, and Macs. Rather than bringing new tweaks to the already optimized iOS, Apple should leverage the success of the iOS and apply the same across iPads & MACs. With unified operating system, users should not feel different, when they move between devices and should also enable users to perform similar functions across devices. 
  • Bring MAC Operating system (MacOS) to Cloud: Post the transition to unified Operating system, Apple should also focus on launching Mac Operating system (MacOS) on Cloud and enable users to pay as they use. Like Apple One Bundle, Apple should focus on launching Apple MacOS ONE bundle, enabling users to access their preferred Mac Operating system with customizable configurations and access system through their preferred devices through browsers. 
Hope Apple launches MacOS on cloud like how Windows 365 was launched, but with more customizable and affordable pricing options. To read more such articles, please feel free to check out the articles published in "G R Team Sites"

Music quality and noise cancellation addiction in Air pods Pro 

As I have detailed in my earlier articles that I use AirPods pro as my primary headphone, day in and day out. However, as day passed by, I understood that I have been addicted to this small-smart-intelligent device - AirPods pro. In this article, I wanted to detail my users about the reasons why I feel addicted to AirPods pro and justifications for the same. Here we go: 
  • Noise Cancellation & In-Ear Feel: The noise cancellation feature in AirPods Pro was a standout feature and the device ensure that users feel comfortable while wearing it for a long duration. Additionally, the noise cancellation feature helps you to put out unnecessary sounds and get immersed in your favorite song. 
  • Sound Quality and Spatial Audio: Most stand-out feature of AirPods Pro is its exceptional sound quality and unique spatial audio. Usual songs in Apple Music helps you to hear new sounds and feel song with every beat. With Spatial Audio expanded to Apple Music, I am getting curious to see, if I will ever hear songs with different dimensional beats. 
As detailed above addiction, I am getting nervousness of being attached to the device and worried of getting out from AirPods Pro to normal or any other headphones.

Frustration from Apple Music lovers in India with no Dolby Atmos support yet

It has been few days since Apple had launched Dolby Atmos feature in Apple Music for users across globe, however users in India were left in lurch with unavailability of such feature and no further update on its availability. This was a marketing blunder decision from Apple about not to release the most hyped about music feature to Indian users and even worst to not updating its users about potential availability. I wanted to detail about the troubleshooting steps, that I took while attempting to make it work: 
  • Software update: Tried software update option and it did not work. 
  • Reset option: Tried resetting settings and network resetting option but did not work. 
  • In music settings: Tried turning off all settings and turned back on after a while, but it did not work. 
Hope Apple addresses this issue for Indian users at the earliest or at least provide them update on availability of the feature. To get further updates on such topics, please feel free to check out articles published in G R Team Sites.

How I use AirPods Pro in my daily life

I have a habit of listening to some kind of audio for a long time, during my office working hours or while being leisure. So, I was looking to get good headphones for listening and after much thought, I placed order for AirPods Pro. In this blog post, I would like to detail about the situations, where I use AirPods Pro in my day-to-day work and personal activities. 
  • Morning: At my work, I used to have my calls with the on-site team and usually the calls happen for a long time. With AirPods Pro, wearing for a long time and transparency option enabling to hear things around your home was spectacular. 
  • Pre-lunch duration: After finishing my office calls early in the morning, I get back to work and to keep focus on my tasks, I used to hear random songs or videos for a long time, and I do not feel the strain or discomfort while using it for long time. 
  • Getting into close of the day: After using it for a long time, like more than 4 hours with the transparency mode ON, the AirPods Pro battery will start to die, and I had to charge back using the case. The most astounding fact about AirPods Pro is that it rapidly charges the headphones in 15 mins. With 15 mins of charge, I can further use headphones for few more hours till I sleep. 
In addition to the above advantages of AirPods Pro, there are few disadvantages and I wanted to detail it out in the upcoming posts. Please check out the blog posts listed on G R Team Sites.

Reasons for not buying silicon M1 MacBook  

I wanted to replace my laptop for a long time and was waiting for Apple’s announcement of silicon macs. My plan for getting new MacBook was going on for a long thing and I always wanted to wait and make investment in long term practical option. So, the reasons that were concerning me while buying the latest silicon Macs were as follows: 
  • The long-term reliability of the silicon processors: With experts agreeing in on the fact that the latest processor from Apple was extremely superior to other competitors and the results increasing very quickly. The long-term reliability was a major concern for me, whether Apple will restrict too much on their core processors by restricting implementation of applications approved only by Apple and not allowing users to implement third party or cracked software solutions. 
  • Second generation of processors will always be ahead and reliable than the first version. Even though apple’s silicon Mac's processor was impressive, Apple had long history of launching best and reliable processors or product during their successive versions. So, I am hopeful that the second iterative version will be better than the first version. 
  • Design changes: Apple has not changed Apple MacBook design for a long time and if Apple changes design now, then the earlier version MacBook becomes outdated.
