  • Patent number: 11122149
    Abstract: A server device may host a communication application that remotely accessed by a computing device. Display data generated by a remotely accessed application is communicated to the computing device from the server device. The display data generated by the remotely accessed application is communicated from the computing device to another computing device associated with a user participating in the communication session hosted by the communication application. A communication application executing on the other computing device displays a user interface of the remotely accessed application by processing the display data.

  • Publication number: 20210136129
    Abstract: Techniques for providing unified user interfaces among actively paired devices, including determining that first and second devices are actively paired together at a first time based on a determination that the first device is in physical proximity to the second device when the first and second devices are both authenticated for a same user service account; receiving, at the first time, an indication of an actuation of a user interface control associated with a user activity and presented by the first device; and causing, in response to the receipt of the indication and the determination that the first and second devices are actively paired together at the first time, the second device to present a user interface associated with the user activity.

  • Publication number: 20210136846
    Abstract: A server allows pairing of a computing device with a companion computing device so that they may automatically connect to one another in the future. Pairing is accomplished by responding to a user request to pair a particular companion device by identifying computing devices associated with a particular user account, and directing those devices to monitor whether they are in range of a proximity signal (such as a BLUETOOTH® signal). A user interface on the companion device displays a list of devices specific to the user that are in proximity to the companion computing device, so that the user can choose a device to pair with the companion computing device.

    Abstract: Techniques for providing unified user interfaces among actively paired devices, including that first and second devices are actively paired together at a first time based on a determination that the first device is in physical proximity to the second device when the first and second devices are both authenticated for a same user service account; receiving, at the first time, an indication of an actuation of a first user interface control associated with a teleconferencing session and presented by the first device; and causing, in response the receipt of the indication and the determination that the first and second devices are actively paired together at the first time, a real-time component of the teleconferencing session to be rendered by the second device while a first user associated with the user service account is joined to the teleconferencing session as a participant.

  • Patent number: 10666902
    Abstract: A device is disclosed, which includes a processor and a memory in communication with the processor. The memory includes executable instructions that, when executed by the processor, cause the processor to control the device to perform functions of receiving user interaction data from a remote device via a communication network, the user interaction data indicating user interaction with a graphical user interface of the remote device; determining, based on the user interaction data, that the user interaction causes a display conflict between the graphical user interface of the remote device and visual information displayed on the graphical user interface of the remote device; and resolving the display conflict by causing the remote device to display modified visual information. The device thus allows a user to see and interact with the graphical user interface without needing to stop or pause displaying the visual information or to wait for the visual information display to be over.

  • Publication number: 20160149959
    Abstract: In one or more embodiments, a hit test thread which is separate from the main thread, e.g. the user interface thread, is utilized for hit testing on web content. Using a separate thread for hit testing can allow targets to be quickly ascertained. In cases where the appropriate response is handled by a separate thread, such as a manipulation thread that can be used for touch manipulations such as panning and pinch zooming, manipulation can occur without blocking on the main thread. This results in the response time that is consistently quick even on low-end hardware over a variety of scenarios.
