El servicio antispam Truecaller agrega una función gratuita de llamadas de voz

Truecaller, una aplicación más conocida por ayudar a los usuarios a detectar llamadas de extraños y spammers, está agregando otra característica a su servicio a medida que refuerza el estado de su súper aplicación. La firma con sede en Estocolmo dijo hoy que su aplicación ahora se puede utilizar para realizar llamadas de voz gratuitas basadas en VoIP.

La compañía le dijo a TechCrunch el martes que ha comenzado a implementar la función de llamadas de voz gratuitas en su Android usuarios Se espera que el lanzamiento llegue a todos los usuarios de Android en los próximos días. La función, que actualmente solo admite llamadas entre dos usuarios, llegará pronto a su aplicación iOS.

En los mercados emergentes como India, donde viven 100 millones de sus 140 millones de usuarios, las llamadas de voz gratuitas han sido una característica largamente buscada. Hasta finales de 2016, las llamadas de voz eran bastante caras en la India, y los operadores de telecomunicaciones consideraban los ingresos de las llamadas tradicionales como su mayor generador de beneficios.

Pero en los últimos dos años y medio, las cosas han cambiado dramáticamente para cientos de millones de usuarios en la India después de que Reliance Jio, un operador de telecomunicaciones propiedad del hombre más rico de la India, Mukesh Ambani, lanzó su red con llamadas de voz gratuitas y servicios de datos de bajo precio. Reliance Jio ya ha acumulado más de 300 millones de usuarios para convertirse en una de las tres principales empresas de telecomunicaciones del país.

Sin embargo, la calidad de la red aún deja mucho que desear en la India, ya que las llamadas tradicionales disminuyen bruscamente y se enfrentan a problemas de calidad más a menudo de lo que uno quisiera. Truecaller dijo que sus llamadas de voz se basan en servicios de datos (datos móviles y Wi-Fi) y afirmó que pueden trabajar con rapidez incluso en una red irregular.

La adición de la funcionalidad de llamadas de voz se presenta cuando Truecaller busca agresivamente expandir su negocio. El servicio, que ofrece tanto el nivel de soporte publicitario gratuito como el paquete de suscripción, ha agregado funciones de mensajería, pagos móviles y grabación de llamadas en los últimos años. A principios de este año, también agregó una opción de crédito, permitiendo a los usuarios en India pedir prestados unos pocos cientos de dólares.

Un representante de la compañía dijo que Truecaller comenzó a explorar la función de llamadas de voz gratuitas hace unos meses. Comenzó a probar la nueva funcionalidad con usuarios de grupos de prueba alfa y beta hace cuatro semanas. Ahora planea introducir el soporte de llamadas de voz grupales pronto, dijo la compañía.

Con la nueva característica, Truecaller ahora compite aún más estrechamente con WhatsApp . La aplicación propiedad de Facebook se ha hecho omnipresente en la India con más de tres cuartos de la base de teléfonos inteligentes de la India que utiliza la aplicación. WhatsApp agregó la función de llamadas de voz a su aplicación en 2015. El año pasado, Facebook dijo que los usuarios de todo el mundo gastaban 2 mil millones de minutos por día en las llamadas de video y audio de WhatsApp.

Una moneda global

Facebook tiene algo seguro: el dinero de hoy no funciona para todos. Aquellos de nosotros que vivimos cómodamente en países desarrollados probablemente no veamos las dificultades que afectan a los trabajadores migrantes o los no bancarizados en el extranjero. Preocupados por los codiciosos prestamistas de día de pago y los servicios de remesas de alta tarifa, seleccionados por los atracadores y excluidos de los servicios financieros tradicionales, los pobres se empobrecen. Libra tiene el potencial de devolver más dinero de los padres que trabajan a sus familias y ayudar a las personas a retener el crédito, incluso si les roban sus posesiones físicas. Eso haría más para cumplir la misión de Facebook de hacer que el mundo se sienta más pequeño que todos los "Me gusta" de las noticias combinadas.

norte

Si Facebook tiene éxito y las legiones de personas cobran dinero en efectivo por Libra, él y los otros miembros fundadores de la Asociación de Libra podrían obtener grandes dividendos sobre los intereses. Y si de repente se vuelve súper rápido para comprar cosas a través de Facebook usando Libra, las empresas aumentarán su gasto en publicidad allí. Pero si Libra es pirateada o no es confiable, podría costarle dinero a muchas personas de todo el mundo mientras las agrupa en las criptomonedas. Y al ofrecer una plataforma Libra abierta, los desarrolladores con sombra podrían crear aplicaciones que no solo capturan la información personal de las personas como Cambridge Analytica, sino también su efectivo digital.

Facebook acaba de intentar reinventar el dinero. El próximo año, veremos si la Asociación de Libra puede lograrlo. Me tomó 4000 palabras para explicar Libra, pero al menos ahora puedes decidirte si te da miedo el criptografía de Facebook.

Esto puede reemplazar transacciones en efectivo o débito para muchas personas. Sin embargo, será una venta difícil para los clientes de tarjetas de crédito en los Estados Unidos. Las tarjetas de crédito tienen 4 beneficios sobre Libra.
n1) Capacidad para gastar ahora y pagar más tarde. Incluso sin intereses al pagar dentro de un mes.
n2) Capacidad para ganar dinero en efectivo o recompensas. Los comerciantes están pagando tarifas y recompensas, pero en los Estados Unidos rara vez cobran al cliente por esas tarifas.
n3) Las transacciones no son finales como lo son con efectivo, débito y Libra. El cliente puede impugnar cargos fraudulentos y hacer que las transacciones se reviertan.
n4) Se aceptan tarjetas de crédito en casi todos los Estados Unidos.

Dicho esto, este parece ser el mejor intento de crear una moneda criptográfica estable hasta el momento. Esto puede ganar mucha tracción en países donde las personas no tienen acceso a monedas estables y para las personas que no tienen acceso a crédito.

Compañías como TransferWise están reduciendo el costo de las transferencias internacionales y el acceso al dinero en el extranjero. No necesita monedas criptográficas para asumir la industria de las remesas. Solo necesita una empresa con menos gastos generales y más automatización para reducir los costos de transacción.

Microsoft in 2017 said it would eventually shut down Wunderlist, a company it acquired, in order to forge ahead with its own “to do” app. Desde entonces ha lanzado To-Do, como se llama la aplicación, en Windows, iOS, Android y la web y ha ampliado su conjunto de funciones. Hoy, también está llevando la aplicación a la Mac.

n

The company announced this morning its To-Do app is live on the Mac App Store, where it will support most of the core features right away, including the ability to create and manage tasks, work offline, share lists, utilize tags and more. It also will integrate with Microsoft Outlook to pull in your “Flagged” email list and will support integration with Planner soon, allowing you to see any items assigned to you.

n

La versión para Mac también aprovecha su nueva plataforma para ofrecer un puñado de atajos de teclado, como u23182 to minimize the app so it only displays the list view, and u23181 to return to viewing all your lists. You can click on a task’s text to edit it directly from the list view, as well.u00a0

n

n

It’s worth noting that Microsoft built this native Mac app using 100% AppKit, it says.

n

At Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference this month, the company announced a new set of tools — called Project Catalyst — that allow developers to bring their iPad apps to the Mac by leveraging their existing codebase. Se espera que esto lleve más aplicaciones de Mac a la Mac App Store de Apple a lo largo del tiempo, ya que simplifica el proceso de mantenimiento de múltiples aplicaciones para varias plataformas. Twitter, por ejemplo, dijo el viernes que aprovecharía Project Catalyst para devolver su aplicación a la Mac.

n

Microsoft, sin embargo, tomó una ruta diferente. We understand the company wanted to ship the new app to Mac users running older versions of macOS (macOS High Sierra and higher), which Project Catalyst wouldn’t allow.

n

A big question now is what today’s news will mean for Wunderlist — an app that has a near-perfect 4.9 out of 5 stars rating on the Mac App Store and is the No. 21 most popular free app in the store’s Productivity category.

n

As of today’s launch, Microsoft To-Do has seen a surge of downloads and jumped ahead of its predecessor — it now claims the No. 11 spot in the same category (as of the time of writing).

n

Microsoft había prometido anteriormente que no cerraría Wunderlist hasta que estuviera seguro de que había "incorporado lo mejor de Wunderlist en la tarea". Algunas de las preocupaciones iniciales de la compañía fueron agregar soporte para compartir listas en To-Do y desplegar soporte para todas las plataformas, lo que Microsoft ya ha hecho con el lanzamiento de esta aplicación para Mac.

n

We asked Microsoft if it will comment on its updated plans for Wunderlist as a result of this launch.

n

“We’re not currently working on new features for Wunderlist as we’re concentrating on our new app, Microsoft To-Do,” a spokesperson said. “Once we are confident that we have incorporated the best of Wunderlist into Microsoft To-Do, we will retire Wunderlist,” they added.

n

This is generally the same statement the company made years ago, so it doesn’t add much clarity to the situation.

n

In the meantime, the new Mac version of To-Do is a free download from the Mac App Store here.

Startup founders don’t typically launch a company as a get-rich-quick scheme. Most know that it will be a long, hard slog if they are to succeed. There will be lean years where the money is tight, and where they may personally struggle to pay their bills. They do it because they believe in the mission and they want to build a successful company, where, if all goes well, they could end up with a healthy amount of money.

n

But it takes a lot of hard work, long hours, tough times and a bit of luck to find your way through to a successful outcome, however you choose to define that. Early on every dollar you give yourself is money that’s not going into the business, and while you don’t want to starve yourself, neither do you want to run out of money, and those early dollars are especially valuable.

n

While the ultimate goal is a successful exit, not everyone gets there, and it begs the question, how much is fair to take out in the form of salary, especially in the early years when money is tight, and at what point is it reasonable to sell a bit of equity to take some money out of the business and live a more comfortable life. There are no hard and fast answers.

proposes share split ahead of reported $20B Hong Kong IPO"},"content":{"rendered":"

Alibaba is being heavily linked with a public listing in Hong Kong, which could reportedly happen in Q3 y raise up to $20 billion. The firm is keeping quiet on those rumors, but it did let slip a major hint after it announced plans for a stock split.

n

Filings uploaded today (but originally released Friday) announced a proposal for a one-to-eight stock split.

n

Shareholders are invited to vote on the offer ahead of the company’s annual general meeting on July 15. The initiative has already been approved by Alibaba’s board, which is recommending that shareholders follow suit.

n

The particularly interesting part of the filing is where Alibaba explains the reasons behind the stock split.

n

“The Board of Directors is proposing the Share Subdivision to increase the flexibility for the Company in future capital market activities. Among other reasons, the one-to-eight share subdivision will increase the number of shares available for issuance at a lower per share price, and the Board of Directors believes that this will increase flexibility in the Companyu2019s capital raising activities, including the issuance of new shares,” the filing reads.

n

That would appear to clear the way for a second listing for the company, which went public in a record U.S. IPO that raised more than $20 billion in 2014.

n

Alibaba declined to provide further comment when we asked.

n

Reports last week suggested that the Chinese e-commerce giant has already filed initial paperwork for the listing, which would become the largest such float on the Hong Kong stock exchange. The city has become a destination for Chinese tech IPOs since relaxed listing rules came into effect two years ago. Ironically, a lack of flexibility was cited as a key reason why Alibaba picked the U.S. over Hong Kong for its 2014 listing.

n

Tech firms that have gone public in Hong Kong include Razer, Xiaomi, Tencent’s China Literature y selfie app company Meitu. Despite the hype, some have been guarded of Hong Kong’s suitability for tech firms, which are often not profitable when listing. Indeed, Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan previously warned that “the U.S. [public markets] are probably more cognizant of tech companies” than Hong Kong retail investors.

Getting an H-1B skilled-worker visa is like winning the lottery u2014 literalmente: With the number of new visas issued each year capped at 85,000, most of this year’s over 200,000 applicants face disappointment. But if youu2019re already working in the United States, then youu2019ve already won the H-1B lottery, and that makes you a hot commodity.

n

With H-1Bs in short supply, successful companies frequently poach skilled workers. Everyone knows the tech sector thrives on this free exchange of people and ideas, so if another employer needs your skills, why not start working for them?

n

Well, not so fast. H-1B holders can work only for the company that originally sponsored their visa application. So if you want to change employers, youu2019ll need to u201ctransferu201d your H-1B.

n

That process used to be relatively straightforward but not in the Trump era. (Boundless recently underwent this process with an employee, so we understand the pain.) The denial rate for initial H-1B applications spiked over five-fold to 32 percent just in the first quarter of fiscal 2019, up from 6 percent in 2015. Crucially, the Trump administration is targeting u201ccontinuingu201d H-1B applications used by existing employees to either renew their H-1B or switch it to a new employer. Even tech giants like Amazon are now seeing double-digit rejection rates.

n

n

The bottom line: The days of getting an H-1B transfer quickly rubber-stamped are long gone, and that makes it vital to do whatever you can to keep the odds in your favor. The stakes are high u2014 if things go south, you could lose your right to live and work in the United States. Hereu2019s what H-1B holders need to know about the right u2014 and wrong u2014 ways to set about switching employers:

n

Donu2019t take your transfer for granted.

n

First, understand that an H-1B u201ctransferu201d is actually a brand new visa application, not a simple handover of your existing H-1B visa from one employer to another u2014 thereu2019s no such thing.

Every time I see a “the future of work is remote” article, I think to myself: “How backwards! How retro! How quaint!” That future is now, for many of us. I’ve been a fully remote developer-turned-CTO for a full decade. So I’m always baffled by people still wrestling with whether remote work is viable for their company. That jury rendered its verdict a long time ago.

n

One reason companies still struggle with it is that remote work amplifies the negative effects of bad practices. If everyone’s in one place, you can dither, handwave, vacillate, micromanage, and turn your workplace into an endless wasteland of unclear uncertainty, punctuated by ad-hoc last-second crisis meetings u2014 and your employees will probably still conspire against your counterproduction to get alguna cosa done, albeit much less than what they’re capable of.

n

If they’re remote, though, progress via conspiracy and adhocracy is no longer an option. If they’re remote, you need decisive confidence, clear direction, iterative targets, independent responsibilities, asynchronous communications, and cheerful chatter. Let me go over each of those:

n

Decisive confidence. Suppose Vivek in Delhi, Diego in Rio, and Miles in Berlin are all on a project. (An example I’m drawing from my real life.) It’s late your time. You have to make a decision about the direction of their work. If you sleep on it, you’re writing off multiple developer-days of productivity.

n

Sometimes they have enough responsibilities to have other things to work on. (More on that below.) Sometimes you don’t have to make the decision because they have enough responsibility to do so themselves. (More on that below.) But sometimes you have to make the business-level decision based on scant information. In cases like this, remember the military maxim: “Any decision is better than no decision.”

A number of promising women’s health tech companies have popped up in the last few years, from fertility apps to ovulation bracelets — even Apple has jumped into the subject with the addition of period tracking built into the latest edition of the watch. But there hasn’t been much in the way of innovación in women’s sexual health for decades.

n

In-vitro fertilization (IVF) is now a 40-year-old invention and even the top pharmaceutical companies have spent a pittance on research and development. Subjects like polycystic ovarian syndrome, endometriosis and menopause have taken a backseat to other, more fatal concerns. Fertility is itself oftentimes a mysterious black box as well, though a full 10% of the female population in the United States has difficulty getting or staying pregnant.

n

That’s all starting to change as startups are now bringing in millions in venture capital to gather and treat women’s health. While it’s early days (no unicorns just yet) interest in the subject has been jumping steadily higher each year.

n

To shine a better light on the importance of tech’s role in spurring more innovation for women’s fertility, we asked five VCs passionate about the space for their investment strategies, including Sarah Cone (Social Impact Capital), Vanessa Larco (NEA), Anu Duggal (Female Founders Fund), Jess Lee (Sequoia) and Nancy Brown (Oak HC/FT).

Buying a car is painful. Dealerships are the worst, and the options are endless. The rise of the Internet produced powerful tools for shoppers, but in the end, most buyers still have to trudge down to a car lot.

n

For this series of articles, TechCrunch spoke with several founders and investors attempting to rethink car buying. It’s clear these startups are the underdog in this fight. Most consumers buy cars the same way as their grandparents did and for good reason. Dealerships nationwide fought for years to enact laws and regulations that protect their businesses.

n

Several young companies are attempting to put the dealership online. Companies like Carvana, Shift, Vroom and Joydrive are putting the entire car buying process online, allowing customers to buy, trade-in and even test drive vehicles without talking to a salesman in an oversized golf pullover.

n

In the next part of this series, weu2019ll look at companies like Fair that are moving consumers away from purchasing and into short-term leases. Even automakers are trying something new. Tesla sells directly to consumers while Volvo, BMW, Mercedes and others are launching subscription options to give owners even more flexibility.

n

The three new dealerships

n

n

Several companies are building online car dealerships. Shoppers find and buy a vehicle solely through these sites, and often, the cars are delivered to the buyer. These online dealerships even take trade-ins.

n

Three services dominate this space, and they were all founded in 2013. Carvana, Shift, and Vroom hit the market at the same time but have experienced different paths. One thing is clear though: it takes hundreds of millions of venture capital money to build an online dealership.

n

Emily Melton, co-founder and managing partner, Threshold Ventures (formally known as DFJ Ventures), points to consumeru2019s changing expectations and an optimized process across all kinds of vehicles. She co-led Shiftu2019s Series A in 2014.

Matt is a Managing Editor at TechCrunch.

nn

He started at TechCrunch as a freelance writer in 2008 and moved up the ranks to become the Managing Editor in early 2017. Born and raised in the heart of the automotive world, he has a special place in his heart for mobility startups and gadgets.

nn

At TechCrunch he manages the editorial side of the company's events including TechCrunch Disrupt, TechCrunch Sessions and the company's various worldwide events. Previously he was a freelance writer at Engadget and EngadgetHD where he hosted podcasts until he was removed from that role after saying a swear word. He's very sorry and promises it won't happen again.

Matt is a Managing Editor at TechCrunch.

He started at TechCrunch as a freelance writer in 2008 and moved up the ranks to become the Managing Editor in early 2017. Born and raised in the heart of the automotive world, he has a special place in his heart for mobility startups and gadgets.

At TechCrunch he manages the editorial side of the company's events including TechCrunch Disrupt, TechCrunch Sessions and the company's various worldwide events. Previously he was a freelance writer at Engadget and EngadgetHD where he hosted podcasts until he was removed from that role after saying a swear word.

Truecaller, an app best known for helping users screen calls from strangers and spammers, is adding yet another feature to its service as it bolsters its super app status. The Stockholm-based firm said today that its app can now be used to place free VoIP-powered voice calls.

n

The company told TechCrunch on Tuesday that it has started to roll out the free voice calling feature to its Androide users. It expects the rollout to reach all Android users in the coming days. The feature, which currently only supports calls between two users, will arrived on its iOS app soon.

n

In emerging markets such as India, where 100 million of its 140 million users live, free voice calls has been a long-sought after feature. Until late 2016, voice calls were fairly expensive in India, with telecom operators counting revenue from traditional calls as their biggest profit generator.

n

But in the last two and a half years, things have changed dramatically for hundreds of millions of users in India after Reliance Jio, a telecom operator owned by Indiau2019s richest man Mukesh Ambani, launched its network with free voice calls and low-priced data services. Reliance Jio has already amassed over 300 million users to become one of the top three telcos in the nation.

n

Yet, the quality of network still leaves much to be desired in India as traditional calls drop abruptly and run into quality issues more often than one would like. Truecaller said that its voice calls rely on data services — mobile data and Wi-Fi — and claimed that they can work swiftly even on patchy network.

n

The addition of voice calling functionality comes as Truecaller aggressively looks to expand its business. The service, which offers both ad-support free tier and subscription bundle, has added messaging, pagos móviles, and call recording features in recent years. Earlier this year, it also added a crediting option, allowing users in India to borrow a few hundred dollars.

n

A representative with the company said Truecaller began exploring the free voice calling feature a few months ago. It began testing the new functionality with alpha and beta test group users four weeks ago. It now plans to introduce group voice calling support soon, the company said.

n

With the new feature, Truecaller now competes even more closely with WhatsApp . The Facebook-owned app has become ubiquitous in India with more than three-quarters of Indiau2019s smartphone base using the app. WhatsApp added voice calling feature to its app in 2015. Last year, Facebook said users around the world were spending 2 billion minutes per day on WhatsApp video and audio calls.
