WhatsApp is launching a new South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands Email List feature to make it easier for its users to delete their photos or videos from their WhatsApp chats. It is true that all this content can take up space, especially for people who use the messaging application on a daily basis. Photos and videos received in chats can quickly accumulate and become the number one cause of phone storage saturation.WhatsApp has therefore decided to help its users with a tool integrated directly into the application’s settings. Files are sorted by size to allow users to see the largest ones first. This new tool should be rolled out gradually over the next few days for all users around the world.
To access this storage management tool, all you need to do is go to WhatsApp settings, then to Data and storage usage section , then to manage storage. You will find a new interface where the application shows you the space that WhatsApp media take up compared to other applications and also the free storage you have left.Then, WhatsApp classifies the media into 2 categories to help you sort it outWhen you access one of these 2 categories, you can preview the files and then check the ones you want to delete. In a few seconds, it is possible to free up space by deleting the heaviest files.Note: WhatsApp will display a warning banner at the top of your chats when your phone storage gets full. By pressing it, you will also access the storage management tool to delete files that are too large.Ok Google, I want to go shopping”: the purchase of food by voice comes to the Google AssistantWhat are the best practices for voice technologies in terms of respecting user privacy?
A new tool to better manage file storage
In early September 2020, the CNIL published a white paper entitled “Listening to you”. It highlights that the voice and the elements that it brings through orality (accent, provenance, character, etc.) pertain to the personal sphere and provide identity information (biometric), which is also usurpable. Today’s voice assistants are required to request permission to record and use their voice data.On the other hand, the control by the user remains opaque. Indeed, there is no means of control over its data, nor where it goes and what it will actually be used for. The CNIL is actively working on these aspects of good practice, like other conglomerates. In early 2020, the VoicePrivacy challenge was launched. Researchers are working on the development of voice data anonymization solutions by deleting personal data. These initiatives suggest that the issue of privacy is indeed on the table.
Finally, in its white paper, the CNIL gives examples of good behavior in 5 steps, to be adopted in order to comply with the legislation in force. In summary, it is a question of determining whether it is personal data, defining its processing, its controller and its legal basis, defining which data are selected, their retention period, informing people and finally protecting them and secure them. This applies to users and designers alike. Voice Tech Paris is 2 days to meet the ecosystem of voice technologies, users and suppliers. We offer the possibility of interacting with solution designers via their virtual booths. It is also possible to attend 20 conferences: feedback on experiences with players from various sectors (banking and insurance, industry, transport, service, etc.) but also keynotes and more strategic debates. In particular, we have set up a debate on the voice in the society of tomorrow.
