Mega celebrates its second anniversary today. The storage service of Kim Dotcom, creator of Megaupload , celebrates its two years with several novelties in its mobile platforms and in support for Linux. Among all of them is the final release of the beta phase of its Android application , which had been in testing for a year and a half. In addition, we can stream the multimedia content that we have stored in Mega, such as photos or videos. Along with these developments, Dotcom is expected to officially present its Megachat application today , a tool that will compete directly with Skype and that will be integrated into the service.
An anniversary is not just any date. And more in a world as changing as that of technology in which services die and appear in a matter of months. Mega celebrates its two years with several interesting changes to its platform. The most interesting of these changes is one we have been waiting for a long time. At last, the service application for Android leaves the beta phase and becomes official, after more than a year of waiting. And with this premiere also come a couple of features that can be very useful. For example, from now on users can stream multimedia content stored in Mega, such as videos or photos. The interface has also been polished to be more intuitive and easy to use, as well as ending some performance problems that the app had.
In addition, the operation of the app and the downloads will be faster, and we can change or delete the folders and files that we have stored online . Another application that has received improvements is the one that has been prepared for iOS (iPhone and iPad). In this case, the most important change is the integration of the Touch ID system . This feature will allow us to protect access to our files through the fingerprint , a very useful feature to prevent unwanted access.
As for the changes for the PC platform, the main one is the support for different Linu x distributions . In addition, the tools for developers who want to work with Mega have also been improved . Apart from these news that have reached this online service, today could also be the day when Kim Dotcom finally presents Megachat officially. The controversial creator of Megaupload and Megavideo has long been playing with the idea of launching a tool that competes directly with Skype . Megachat would be integrated into Mega and allow users to communicate with greater security, in addition to offering aeasy and direct file sharing system . Be that as it may, we will have to wait a few hours to find out about this possible launch.
