Now we can conduct live video presentations through online applications like Zoom where you can live chat with many people simultaneously that makes it easy to exchange information regarding relevant topics.

These days almost every virtual chat or video conference is conducted on Zoom whether it is MNC seminars, tuitions, coaching classes, and many more, which has increased manifolds ever since the pandemic.

Security Issue

However, like all electronic devices, Zoom too is not immune to technical glitches or online malpractices from unscrupulous elements, which was seen when a massive security flaw was discovered.

This glitch would make online data and other sensitive information vulnerable to hackers and allow them to gain deeper access into a Mac system and that too no ordinary one but one whose roots ran very deep into the system.

The security issue was so serious that hackers would not only gain deep insight into the system but take control of it as well, which was sensed back to the auto updater software of Zoom and due to having root level access to the system, this glitch came out in the open.

The company has now sorted out the issue and in the process has discovered another bug in the system following which it too was patched up thereby leaving no room for any other issue.

Pixel Users get updates on Android 12 instead of Android 13

Pixel smartphones have achieved tremendous acclaim from tech experts and users alive as they see it as a new change to the monotonous smartphones of the bygone era with its updated features and applications.

Google Pixel 6 pro

Google has now started updating supported pixels to Android 13 smartphones but users are experiencing issues in the matter. Many of them have complained that instead of Android 13, they’re getting Android 12 updates, which is a major glitch as they are not aware of new updates of Android 13.

The update is not small but one that involves a hefty 2GB download and a fairly recent one from July 2022 when a security patch was done and a serious GPS issue too was sorted out.

Although some users are getting Android 13 updates, they’re not the ones that a user can expect with many Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro owners from western countries raising this issue and asking for a solution.

Another surprising thing is that this issue doesn’t occur on a frequent basis but rather on irregular intervals, which every Pixel user must know about as they too might be having the problem without being aware of it.

Google is looking into the matter and has advised a solution to users where they have to opt into a beta channel that will download a stable Android 13 release, then opt out and if they’re still getting Android 12 updates instead of 13, it is best to pause the update and wait for a few days before Google sorts out the problem.
