uListen Makes YouTube a Background Audio Player on your Android Device

YouTube is a fantastic site to view videos. That’s its main function and it’s awesome for it. However, just because YouTube is a video service doesn’t mean it can’t be used for other things. Case in point, you can find a ton of music on YouTube. You can listen to as much as you want with no subscription fee and minimal ads. It would make a great music streaming app for your Android if not for one thing; if the YouTube app isn’t front and center on your phone, it stops playing. Android app uListen changes that.

Install uListen on your phone and it allows you to search YouTube for any band you can think of. It helps you find full albums or single tracks – whatever you want. Set a song to play and you can lock your phone or switch to another app and the music plays on. Drop whatever music streaming app you’ve got running and give this a shot, you won’t regret it. Check out the YouTube video below from OfficialSoftModder to see this great app in action.

If you find uListen to be as awesome as we do, pass this along to your social media friends.

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

Does technology have all the answers?

This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

Creating technological solutions transparently

This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

Technology as the connecting tool

Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

“Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
