Google Translate 6.5 starts rolling out Android dark mode

Published

Loading...

Google is finally rolling out dark mode support for Google Translate on both iOS and Android.

Google translate first rolled out on iOS 13 which is currently available to users worldwide. Already, some users are reporting dark mode on Android devices for version 6.5 of google translate. Support for dark mode in Translate on Android has been a long time coming, projected to roll out as early as last year.

There is no specific information on which version of Android to be rolled out but it should be the latest Android 10 or it’s predecessor Android 9 which have the capabilities to support dark mode.

Compared to a lot of Google’s other dark themes. The grey background in use is different from some of Google’s other themes, and some of the text colours seem a bit off.

The Android rollout of Google Translate’s dark mode seems very limited. According to 9to5google. , there is only one confirmed report of the rollout from a user in Poland.

Google Translate is a very powerful tool and a popular app on both Android devices and iOS. In the latest update available in the App Store, the dark theme for Translate for iOS 13 respects the system theme. It looks almost identical to what we’re seeing on Android, but a bit more polished off.

Google translate will be joining hundreds of apps that have embraced the dark theme. Some of them include the popular social app Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and some of the E-Bible versions.

The dark mode craze gained popularity in 2019. Since then application developers have been working so hard to have it on their apps.

The most commonly known and scientific advantage of the dark mode is that it saves energy consumption on devices with OLED or AMOLED displays. On a white background, all the pixels turn on and the display demands more power. When pixels are black or even dark grey, as is the case in dark mode. The display’s power requirements will naturally lower.

This power-saving ability of dark mode has as well swayed so many users into it. Having to use phones for longer periods without charging saves energy.

Google might s well enable the feature to use AI for speed and accuracy according to a report by CNET.

The Court of Appeal Judge Sankale ole Kantai has been released on police bond after spending Friday night at Muthaiga Police Station.

Sankale has been ordered to appear at the headquarters on Tuesday morning for further interrogation.

The Judge who spent the night at the police station was grilled by DCI officers accompanied by his Lawyers Nelson Havi and George Khaminwa, for almost nine hours.

According to Havi police have not come out clear if the judge will be a state witness or a suspect in a murder case.

Kantai is allegedly a close friend to the main suspect in the Tob Cohen murder case: Sarah Wairimu.

Detectives claim that the judge ‘coached’ Wairimu as investigations were ongoing.

In October last year, DCI George Kinoti accused Wairimu and her lawyer Phillip Murgor of trying to control investigations and the trial process.

He was responding to a contempt of court application filed against him by Wairimu.

The late Cohen, a tour and travel magnate had lived in Kenya since 1987 but went missing in July last year.

His body was later found in an underground tank at his Kitisuru home with the legs and hands bound.

Wairimu was then arrested and later remanded at the Lang’ata Women’s Prison for over 40 days.

However, she was freed on Ksh.2 million bail or two sureties of Ksh. 2 million each.

3 Suspected Hackers Arrested In Ngara For Huge NTSA Cyber Crime

Suspected hackers in Ngara have been arrested in Ngara for huge NTSA crime.

3 Suspected hackers have been arrested on suspicion of cyber crime. The Directorate of Criminal Investigations confirmed that two Kenyan men were trying to break into the National Transport And Safety Authority (NTSA) and the TIMS online portals. The suspects were found in Ngara and were found with KSH 1.1M in cash and USD 100, three motor vehicles and fiber laser cutting machines that they were using to cut number plates. Micheal Onyango aged 54 and his partner Sylvester Onyango have now been arrested under serious criminal charges.

The team also had a number of painted number plates, functional desktop computers, laptops and logbooks, modems and flash drives that they were using to store NTSA data. Of course they couldn’t compete their task without having someone from the inside. A NTSA employee who worked at the call centre was also arrested and was accused of helping Michael and his partner Sylvester to access NTSA data remotely. Mr Antony Rugut Korir was found guilty of helping the hackers and had also connected a Local Area Network turtle gadget; an undercover system administration and pen testing tool that was providing stealth remote access to the suspects.

Clearly the team were brilliant minds, but why use such skills on heinous activities like these?

The reality is that there’s a serious level of unemployment in Kenya, are we really surprised that people are willing to risk their lives and freedom to get money in such a fast and criminal manner? It’s unfortunate that people like Michael and Sylvester will probably spend a good part of their lives in jail and waste their skills and talents.

Kenya is among countries that have shown marked improvement in implementing the 2014 Malabo Declaration on Accelerated Agricultural Growth and Transformation for Shared Prosperity and Improved Livelihoods.

In the recently released 2019 Africa Agriculture Transformation Scorecard during the African Union Heads of State Summit, Kenya scored 4.88 up from the 2018 Biennial Review in which the country scored 2.88.

The scorecard was mooted in 2014 when African countries agreed to a peer review every two years on a score of 0 to 10 with the benchmark set at 6.66. While Kenya is still below the benchmark, the report indicates that she is on track.

In the review, only four countries; Rwanda, Morocco, Mali and Ghana obtained and surpassed the benchmark of 6.66 and are on-track toward achieving the commitments of the Malabo Declaration by 2025.

The countries scored; Rwanda (7.24), Morocco (6.96), Mali (6.82) and Ghana (6.67).

“From these results, Rwanda is once again, as was the case in 2017, the 2019 best-performing country in implementing the seven commitments of the June 2014 Malabo Declaration on Accelerated Agricultural Growth and Transformation for Shared prosperity and Improved Livelihoods,” says the report signed by the Commissioner for Rural Economy and Agriculture, Josefa Sacko and the AUDA-Nepad CEO Dr Ibrahim Mayaki.

According to the report, out of the forty-nine Member States of the African Union that reported on progress in implementing the Malabo declaration during the 2019 biennial review cycle, only four are on-track towards achieving the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Program (CAADP) Malabo commitments by 2025.

“The average score for the whole of Africa, based on the 49 country reports, is 4.03, which indicates that the continent is again not on-track towards meeting the Malabo commitments by 2025”.

Rwanda and Tanzania are on track to achieving the first commitment on recommitment to the Principles and Values of the CAADP Process.

On commitment to Enhancing Investment Finance in Agriculture, only four countries Burundi, Burkina Faso, Mali and Mauritania have met the target of increasing the budgetary allocation to the agriculture sector to 10%, however, this is a drop from the initial 10 countries that had achieved and surpassed the commitment that was passed by heads of state during the Maputo Declaration of 2003.

The African Union Commission is appealing to member states to recommit to increasing public investments in agriculture. “They must enhance access to and use of financial services by smallholder farmers and rural households who would in turn increase investments in the agricultural sector as they are the largest and important segment of players in agricultural value chains,” says the report.

Only Uganda is on track to realizing the commitment to ending hunger in Africa by 2025, through accelerating agricultural growth, reduction in Post-Harvest Losses, increasing agricultural productivity and improving the nutritional status in Africa.

Nine Member States out of 49 that reported are on-track including; Benin, Burundi, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Mali, Morocco, Rwanda, Sierra Leone and Tunisia are on track to Halving Poverty through Agriculture by 2025.

Member states have been urged to carry out more surveys to generate data for indicators on women and youth engagement in agricultural value chains in order to effectively report on the commitment on Boosting Intra-African Trade in Agriculture Commodities and Services.

Burundi, Cabo Verde, Ethiopia, Ghana, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Rwanda, Seychelles, Tunisia, and Uganda are on-track to achieve the commitment to enhancing resilience to climate variability.

Burkina Faso, Benin, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Malawi, Mali, Mauritius, Morocco, Niger, Rwanda, Uganda, Zambia are on track to realizing the commitment on Enhancing Mutual Accountability for Actions and Results.
