1) The core bluetooth contact tracing functionality is only implemented in Google play services and requires proprietary client libs to be included in the app.
2) The google api mentioned above is only available for use by apps which are whitelisted by google and distributed through the play store.

How is the going in your country?

In Czechia 🇨🇿 you may leave your house only for work, doctor, shopping for food and other essential activities. You must also cover your mouth and nose in the public, but there isn't enough medical equipment, so everyone is making their own masks at home out of some cloth.

Thinking of setting up a Nexcloud instance on my old laptop. Which off-site backup solution do you recommend?

Libreoffice Calc is so much better than MS Excel. All the setting for **graphs are organised much better**.
Using fuctions in Excel is quite painful because of the crappy dialog. Did you know that Excel also makes it harder for you by *traslating the function names* (e.g. VALUE() -> [CZ] HODNOTA() )?
