  • Patent number: 11592959
    Abstract: An electronic device displays one or more thumbnails. The device detects a first multi-contact gesture that includes movement of a first contact and a second contact; and, in response to detecting the first multi-contact gesture, the device displays content associated with a respective thumbnail and enlarges the content associated with the respective thumbnail to a respective enlarged size in accordance with the first multi-contact gesture. The device detects termination of the first multi-contact gesture; and, in response to detecting termination of the first multi-contact gesture: when a resizing metric based on the first multi-contact gesture is below a predefined threshold, the device ceases to display the content at the respective enlarged size; and, when the resizing metric based on the first multi contact gesture is above the predefined threshold, the device displays the content on the display in a predefined arrangement.

  • Patent number: 11586337
    Abstract: An orthogonal or multi-dimensional fabric user interface is described herein. A remote server executes an operating system that provides a multi-dimensional fabric user interface for storing content for a particular user. The user can access select content by manipulating the multi-dimensional fabric user interface through a graphical user interface displayed on a personal mobile computing device. In this way, the user experiences and manipulates various data dimensions around the specific content they are accessing, rather than selecting a particular file structure location. The remote server also enables the user to enter a first location side of a portal and travel to a virtual representation a second actual physical location in the multi-dimensional fabric user interface from a virtual representation of a first actual physical location in the multi-dimensional fabric user interface.

The method includes generating an AR scene for rendering on a display; the AR scene includes a real-world space and virtual objects projected in the real-world space. The method includes analyzing a field of view into the AR scene; the analyzing is configured to detect an action by a hand of the user when reaching into the AR scene. The method includes generating one or more AIEs rendered as virtual objects in the AR scene, each AIE is configured to provide a dynamic interface that is selectable by a gesture of the hand of the user. In one embodiment, each of the AIEs is rendered proximate to a real-world object present in the real-world space; the real-world object is located in a direction of where the hand of the user is detected to be reaching when the user makes the action by the hand.

  • Patent number: 11575758
    Abstract: Techniques for session-based device grouping are described. In an example, a computer system receives first data requesting an output, determines a function to provide content data based at least in part on the first data, determines a session identifier of a session associated with execution of the function, and determines session data associated with the session identifier. The session data includes a first device identifier of a first device, an indication that the first device is outputting the content data, and a second device identifier of a second device. The computer system also causes, based at least in part on the session data including the second device identifier, the second device to output the content data.

  • Patent number: 11568139
    Abstract: Implementations relate to determining a secondary language proficiency measure, for a user in a secondary language (i.e., a language other than a primary language specified for the user), where determining the secondary language proficiency measure is based on past interactions of the user that are related to the secondary language. Those implementations further relate to utilizing the determined secondary language proficiency measure to increase efficiency of user interaction(s), such as interaction(s) with a language learning application and/or an automated assistant. Some of those implementations utilize the secondary language proficiency measure in automatically setting value(s), biasing automatic speech recognition, and/or determining how to render natural language output.
