Google Duo finally starts rolling out screen sharing — here's how it works

After years in the making (and breaking), Google confirmed earlier this month (then deleted the tweet) that screen sharing would soon be available to its Duo video calling service. The feature didn't go live immediately, but is now finally making its way to users.

Indian banking app Paytm no longer works with remote access apps like TeamViewer or AnyDesk installed

Spam and fraud protection are great features to have in apps, especially if they handle your finances. It’s one thing to take precautions, but it’s another to downright block other apps that could enable such nefarious purposes.
