The UBports team has announced a new update for UBports 16.04. The new update, OTA-15, introduces stable support for more devices and provides a number improvements to the camera app, web browser, and calls: “Ratchanan finally got fed up with the “Redial last called number” button not working on his Bluetooth headset and fixed it. Now it is possible to dial calls from Bluetooth devices, including some car infotainment systems which provide an interface to browse your phone’s contacts. Unfortunately, whilst dialing calls was fixed, the subsequent call audio is still broken. Some devices will still have trouble connecting two-way audio, and some have even reported adverse effects when trying it. For example, the Nexus 5 may play loud static over the Bluetooth headset instead of the caller’s audio. Please try a test call (while you are in a safe place!) and report the result back to us before trying to take a call while driving. Ratchanan also added a Thai input method to our on-screen keyboard. It does not have auto-correction, but this is an excellent addition for our Thai users. Thank you, Ratchanan! If you are using a device with an arm64 build of Ubuntu Touch, you may have noticed that missed calls were reported by the caller’s number rather than by their contact name. This issue has also now been fixed.” Further details are available in the project’s release announcement. A list of supported devices and download options can be found on the project’s Devices page.
