Microsoft has banned Slack for employees and discourages using Google Docs and AWS internally

Microsoft has currently blocked its employees from using the free version of Slack. The company is reported to have taken this step due to security issues.

The company has also made a list of services and software that are prohibited for its employees to use. This also includes Google Docs and Amazon Web Services. As reported by Verge on Saturday, the company is discouraging its employees from using the services of the giant companies.

According to the company:

“Slack free, Slack standard and Slack plus versions do not provide required controls to properly protect Microsoft Intellectual Property (IP)”

and hence it advises that staff should use its internally developed software instead.’

“Existing users of these solutions should migrate chat history and files related to Microsoft business to Microsoft teams, which offers the same features and integrated Office 365 apps, calling and meeting functionality.”

“Slack Enterprise Grid version complies with Microsoft security requirements, however, we encourage the use of Microsoft teams rather than a competitive software.”

Microsoft is competing against Slack. The messaging service has recently launched integrations and apps for Slack and Office 365 in order to bridge the gap. The company has also introduced its free version of Teams in order to compete aggressively with Slack earlier this year.

According to the document, Google Docs and Amazon Web Services are directly in competition with Microsoft’s Azure cloud and Office 365. They have discouraged their employees to use these services and requires a business justification.

Other than this software, the company has also put a banned on Grammarly because the office add-in and browser extensions cannot be used on the Microsoft network. That’s because they are able to gain Information Rights Management protected content within documents and emails.

Even GitHub’s cloud version is also discouraged by the company for security reasons. This is mainly done for highly secretive types of specs, information or code.

Microsoft has prohibited the use of all these apps and software for security reasons. Employees are encouraged to use in-house software for their work.

But some of the users have already received that. Android Q beta 5 has a Google camera app v6.3 with the feature of Night sight. The developers of XDA are examining the code of the apk camera. They are searching for the hints of, and they also came out with some interesting tidbits.

When they were inspecting the code, they found some traces of ‘sabre’. It is the internal codename of Super Res Zoom feature. They also found some sensor IDs which was not present in the previous version of the APK. These two sensors are mainly “rear telephoto” and “Front IR”. They are assuming that IR stands for the infrared sensors. So, they are hoping that that the organization may come up with a feature of third front camera. It will be a newly added advantage for the wide-angle selfie camera.  They are mainly using the IR sensor so that they can unlock the lock screen through face recognition.

But there is another ID which gives the clue of the presence of the second rear camera’s telephoto lens. This will help the device to click a photo with a good quality of zoom shots. It also has a feature of capturing the portrait shots. Google has a robust algorithm of capturing the bokeh and portrait shots. It can also manage to click some pictures with amazing background blur. But they don’t know the impact of using the lens for bokeh shots. The facility of the optical zoom is very nice, but Google’s Super Res Zoom is doing a fantastic job. But they are not sure of using the incremental gain in the place of a wide-angle lens.

This is something which is very popular nowadays. There will be a third wide-angle lens in the 2019 iPhone model and Galaxy S10 series.  But this is just a rumor. 9to5Google has collected a piece of information which says:

  “Telephoto image has dimensions ( ), but should have dimensions 4656×3496, 4656×3492 or 2328×1748.”

But later they said that they used the code for debugging the telephone Code. Later they have deduced a point of having a 16-megapixel resolution in Pixel 4. The report also says that nothing is confirmed, the user has to wait till October.
