Microsoft is going to integrate Spotify into a new Windows 11 feature. Panos Panay, Microsoft’s head of Windows and devices, shared this in a Tweet this week. A feature called Focus Sessions includes Spotify integration, the option to create a focus timer to work through tasks while listening to a playlist of music from Spotify.

Apple to scan for Cloud imagery to preventing Child Abuse

Apple has announced a major initiative to scan devices for CSAM imagery. The company on Thursday announced a new set of features, arriving later this year, that will detect child sexual abuse material (CSAM) in its cloud and report it to law enforcement.

From the description, scanning starts only after a file is getting backed up to iCloud, and Apple only receives data about a match if the cryptographic vouchers (uploaded to iCloud along with the image) for a particular account meet a threshold of matching known CSAM.
