6/22/229:00 am 10 More Interesting New macOS Ventura Features Here are some more new features coming to macOS with Ventura this fall, including Photo duplicate finder, the Weather app, Live Text in video and more. Video Transcript: Hi, this is Gary with MacMost.com. Let's take a look at 10 more interesting new features coming to macOS Ventura. MacMost is brought to you thanks to a great group of more than 1000 supporters. Go to MacMost.com/patreon. There you can read more about the Patreon Campaign. Join us and get exclusive content and course discounts. Now in a previous video I showed you ten really interesting things coming to macOS Ventura. Here are ten more. First let's start in the Messages App. You're going to be able to delete messages just like before. I'm going to use Control Click here and then Delete. What's different is that now you'll be able to go to View, Recently Deleted and see recently deleted messages here and Recover them. You'll also be able to select a conversation and mark it as Unread. Now in that previous video I told you about the new app we're getting, the Clock App. But also we're getting the Weather App. It's basically the exact same app that you have on the iPad. So it gives you a nice big screen view of all sorts of different weather data. You can add different cities here or just search for one and get the weather data for it right now. You can go and look at Maps and get all sorts of weather information just like you can on the iPhone and iPad. Now over in Safari there's a new feature for Tab Groups. Go to the Start Page. In addition to having regular Favorites, you can have favorites for a Tab Group. So you go into the settings here for the Start Page and there is one called Tab Group Favorites. So this will be different depending upon which Tab Group you are in. You can see these here in Bookmarks under Favorites. You can see Tab Group Favorites and for each Tab Group you can also go to Edit, Bookmarks and you can see all of the favorites for each Tab Group here as well. Now there are two ways to do dictation in macOS. The simple way to do it is just to use the basic Dictation which you turn on by going into System Settings and then going to Keyboard, and then here you can turn on Dictation right there. You use it with the Shortcut set here. So press Control Key twice in my case. But you can do others as well. So it works the same as before. But now, if you notice, it will figure out punctuation. (This is a test. This is another sentence.) In addition this type of dictation now recognizes emoji. All you need to do is speak the name of the emoji character that you want and then the word emoji afterwards. (Pizza emoji. Smiley face emoji. Mind blown emoji.) A new trick in the Photos App is Duplicates here on the left. You select that it will show duplicate photos. Now be warned! It's not just looking for photos that are exactly the same but ones that are extremely similar. Like if you take several photos very quickly of a still object each one is its own separate photo. But Duplicates will actually show them here. If you flip between them you could see that there's a slight difference between each one. So you don't want to just use this and willy nilly delete a bunch of photos. You want to use it and then look carefully at all the photos to make sure you keep the right one. The Stocks App allows you now to have multiple stock's lists. So you've got My Symbols here but you can create a new watchlist and call it whatever you want. So you could have one that maybe reflects your retirement account. One that reflects maybe stocks that you may be interested in and things like that. Or you can just use this as a way to track news for companies you're interested in. An interesting new feature in System Settings is the ability to get WiFi passwords out of System Settings. So if you go in here and then you go to WiFi and then scroll down to the bottom and click Advanced. You're going to see a list of all of the different WiFi networks you've ever connected to. You can select anyone of those, like that, and copy the password from it. So in macOS Monterey we got Live Text. The ability to select and copy text in still images. Well now you can do it in videos. So here is a video. I just have it opened in QuickTime Player. I can select the text on any frame here. Copy it and then paste it into another app. You can even take actions on this text. So, for instance, here in this final frame of the video notice how there is a link and you can actually click here and open the link. In Maps, as before, you can search for directions. So let's start here and then do Directions and notice how we can create another stop right here. Notice here you can add another stop and you can rearrange the order of the stops and everything. You can go up to five different destinations in one route. Now I want to mention one last feature that's really important although you never see it working. It will be in the background. It's called Rapid Security Response. What it is is that security updates will be automatic and not be tied to software updates. So if there is a security threat to macOS you can get an update without doing the whole major dot 1 release or whatever it is of your Mac. It will just happen automatically and quietly in the background and protect you from any malware that may appear. Apple hasn't really needed this with macOS in the past. What they provided through software updates and updates to XProtect and such have been fine. But it is great that they are thinking ahead and putting even more security into macOS. Hope you found this useful. Thanks for watching.Related Subjects: Ventura (8 videos) Related Video Tutorials: 10 Interesting New macOS Ventura Features ― New macOS Ventura Mail and Messages Features ― New macOS Ventura Notes and Reminders Features ― An In-Depth Look at macOS Ventura Stage Manager Comments: 10 Responses to “10 More Interesting New macOS Ventura Features” nick 1 year ago Thx Gary, any idea why we still don't see a way to select multiple conversations in Messages to batch delete? To me this is puzzling that such a basic feature is not yet available. Conversations sometimes pile up and it's so inefficient to have to delete one at the time. Gary Rosenzweig 1 year ago nick: You'd have to ask Apple that. Note that for many people (me included) this is not a problem. I never look to delete conversations, either one or in bulk. What is the reason you want to delete them? They use almost no space. nick 1 year ago Conversations with people whom I communicate with are not a problem, but given the number of one-off conversations that sometimes tend to pile up, I think it's a reasonable request. I have made that suggestion to Apple multiple times, just wondering if you knew of a reason why that's not available, given we can delete multiple emails, files etc. Gary Rosenzweig 1 year ago nick: My guess is that while you and some others want to make it easier to delete messages, there are more people right now already pleading with customer support to help them recover messages they have deleted and now regret deleting. So making it easier to delete messages is probably more of a dilemma than you think. Don Smith 1 year ago Speaking of new OSs, I got an alert that a system extension, signed by , will not be compatible with a future OS. No extension name. There's no way to find this extension and delete it. This is not the first time I've received such an alert. What good is such an alert if there's no clue to its name and location? Gene 1 year ago When copying the wifi passwords is there anyway to see them? If one pastes the copied password into a Note will it appear? Gary Rosenzweig 1 year ago Gene: Should, yes. Try it and see. Tom Sakaluk 1 year ago Hello Gary. Does Duplicate Marked Photos contain only what it perceives to be duplicates while the original picture remains in the library? Or are the duplicates and the original photo both contained in Duplicate Marked Photos? I assume pictures deleted from Duplicate Marked Photos are also deleted from the main library.Finally, do you think you might consider doing a video on how to permanently disable the Live feature on the photos app on an iPhone? Thanks. Tom Sakaluk Gary Rosenzweig 1 year ago Tom: It does what I show in the video. It shows you the duplicates. You decide what to do with them. As for Live Photos, go to Settings, Camera, Preserve Settings and turn that on for Live Photos. Then turn it off the next time you are in the Camera app and it will stay off until you turn it on again. Tom Sakaluk 1 year ago Thank you so much for the answer Gary. Great as usual. Comments Closed.
