Canonical has announced that they have updated Photo Scope to allow Ubuntu Phone users to view photos that have been uploaded to their Dropbox accounts. And there are many hosting clouds, but when we talk about a few, Dropbox is usually among the chosen ones, which is why Canonical has given it some preference. The fact is that this sharing service does not have many fans among users of the Ubuntu community, who would prefer to see similar support for other open source services like ownCloud.
The thing is, the phones they use Ubuntu Phone they are not used much at present and the main reason is that the mobile version of Ubuntu faces other mobile operating systems that take much longer to market, such as iOS, which appeared in 2007, or Android, which is used in about 80% of mobile devices worldwide basically because Google allows it to be installed on virtually any mobile.
After Photo Scope, the next major update will arrive in June
Right now, Canonical is trying to offer Ubuntu Phone users some interesting news, such as the ability to view photos captured with other devices and uploads to Dropbox from Photo Scope on your Ubuntu Phone devices. But in addition to such developments, they are also working on much more important ones, the first of which is an OTA-11 expected in early June after it was announced that its launch would be delayed by a week.
One of the most anticipated developments that will come alongside the OTA-11 is Aethercast, Which is also known as Miracast or Wi-Fi Display and which should allow users of Ubuntu phones and tablets to take advantage of the famous convergence of Canonical operating system. On the other hand, they will soon start developing the OTA-12 as well, so it looks like the Ubuntu developer team is going slowly, but with good handwriting.
