Catch the match on an app

Tech Tonic

Q Pease suggest a good app to follow the football World Cup games on my mobile.

Mitali De

There are far too many World Cup apps on Google Play and the App Store and finding the right one is really difficult. I have never gone wrong with LiveScore. In Google Play and in the App Store search for LiveScore: World Football 2018. The app can be configured to give you notifications on a goal, scorer, penalties and many more such events in the game. The group points are automatically updated at the end of a game. If you want more details go for FotMob.

Game, Twitch, watch

Q I wish to stream my gameplay of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) mobile for my friends. How do I record the internal game audio while gaming with earphones on my Redmi Note 4?

Jason Brody

The Redmi Note 4 has a built-in screen recorder in Tools in your app drawer. Open it and then press the settings icon on the top. Select the sound source. You can choose between the speaker and the microphone. A better way would be to use the Twitch app. You can stream the live gameplay from an Android or iOS device to the Twitch streaming servers where your friends can watch it. To stream the footage from your mobile, you will first have to display it on your computer, which will then send it to Twitch through a program called Reflector 3 that has to be installed on your PC. You will also need a free copy of OBS Studio streaming software.

Image change

Q The Windows spotlight picture is not changing on my laptop. The same thing had happened on my desktop too but the problem was resolved after resetting spotlight's preferences. The desktop is always on, but I use the laptop only sometimes.

Saikat Kundu

Windows spotlight is a setting on a Windows 10 computer that displays different pictures every day on the lock screen. The initial picture is included in the installation. You are asked if you like such pictures. If you do not, the image will be changed. For the images to change, you need to leave your computer on for a while with an active Internet connection. There is no need to leave the computer on all day. The images do not reside on your computer. They are downloaded from Microsoft's servers.

Net connect

Q I have a Dell Inspiron 15 3000 series laptop with Windows 10. I am unable to connect to my JioFi network. Even the WiFi connection icon is not showing.

Subhanu Banerjee

The easiest way to connect is to use the action centre in Windows 10. Press the Windows key and the A key together and a panel will open on the right of your screen. Click on Network at the bottom. Select the wireless network you want to connect to. Opt to connect automatically. Enter the password and click on the Connect button. If you do not see any network listed, click on the WiFi button to turn on the adapter.

There is another way to turn on the WiFi adapter, too. Go to the Start Menu and select Settings-Networks & Internet. On the left pane, select WiFi. Scroll down and click on "Change adapter options". Right-click on the WiFi adapter and select Enable.

Windows store

Q Just as in Android there is a Google Play store and in iOS an App Store, is there a store for Windows where we can download games and apps?

Aditya Raj

Yes, there is. Just type "store" in search box on the desktop and select it to open the Windows Store. The store is also depicted by a shopping bag on the taskbar. Once the store opens, you will need to log in with your Microsoft account to be able to download anything.
