Cyanogen 13.1 has been out for quite some time. Owners of OnePlus One have now started receiving the update to Cyanogen 13.1. The update includes various Microsoft based Mods which are quite fascinating and highly appreciated.
Among many features, one of the features the mod offers is about the Skype use. Now Skype calls can be made directly from the Cyanogen phone app. So, if you are on the call with someone with a Cyanogen or Android device then you can easily switch from a cellular call to a Skype Video call in just an instant.
The Cyanogen mod also allows you to add more Skype credit to your account direct from the Cyanogen’s phone app. Moreover, you can also search a contact from their Cyanogen contact card and call the person.
Cyanogen 13.1 also comes with Cortana Mod. The Mod allows you to ask Cortana to take a selfie. When you ask Cortana to take a picture the smartphone begins an automatic countdown to give you time to prepare for the picture. Furthermore, Cortana can also be accessed from the locked screen now, thanks to the update.
This will allow you to have the Microsoft Virtual assistant search, set alarms, reminders, and more. This can be done by waking your device and swiping to the left side of the screen. Unfortunately, for now, Cortana is only available for the users in the United States.
Due to the latest update, now you can also create a time-lapse video using the Microsoft Hyperlapse Mod for Camera. Recording a time-lapse video is very simple. Firstly, you need to open the camera app; then, switch to Hyperlapse mode and then simply begin filming. This also works with existing videos on your device. And with the update to Cyanogen 13.1, OneNote Mods works from within the email and phone apps to help you stay organized. And while not a Microsoft feature, the update enables Twitter users to see updates on the lock screen.
Mods are available on Cyanogen 13 and higher and they have your favorite features right where you want them. For example, camera features are found inside the camera app. For more information about the latest update’s Mods, check out the video below.
