Snapchat has just added a useful new feature that butts heads with Google Assistant and other AI helpers on your phone. I never would’ve expected Snapchat to try and tackle that kind of market, but today we’re getting Context Cards in our Snaps.
Google is quietly testing a new feature that will automatically play YouTube videos in the mobile app while you browse the Home feed of the service. It sounds incredibly intrusive, especially since no one really likes videos that automatically start on their own, but it seems like Google has tweaked it to make it bearable.
Huawei has sent out invitations for an upcoming event in December this year, and it looks like they’re teasing a phone (phones?) with incredibly small bezels. There’s a ton of speculation about what this will actually be, but pretty much no solid evidence or leaks otherwise.
Lenovo announced the Moto G5S Plus as a sort of special edition of the Moto G5 Plus from last year with similar, but slightly improved specs. It bumped the screen size up to 5.5-inches and added a dual-camera system, but otherwise kept most of what we loved from the regular budget-friendly option.
So while it isn’t a significant improvement over the previous iteration, it isn’t supposed to be. It’s improved in all the right places, but is that really worth any extra cash over the Moto G5 Plus? Let’s find out.
iFrogz has added several new sets of headphones to their wireless audio family, including a few in-ear and around-ear options to cater to pretty much anyone. You’ll get some in varying price points and styles, too.
The Galaxy S8 and S8+ have had a relatively scandal-free life so far, and while that sounds like a dig at the Galaxy Note 7, most phones usually have some kind of issue, however small. And unfortunately for Samsung, the Galaxy S8’s tiny issue is here.
Much of Google’s event was spoiled over the past couple weeks, but the Google Home Max hasn’t been fully revealed until now. The Max is a supersized Google Home speaker that wants to bring all the great features of Google Assistant to a massive speaker that can fill your room with sound without breaking a sweat.
The Google Home Mini wasn’t a well-kept secret, but Google has finally made it official to remove all doubt. The smaller smart device still features the powerful Google Assistant in a much smaller package with a much more wallet-friendly price tag.
Optoma is a company known for quality audio and video products, and their latest foray into the market is the NuForce Be Free8 headphones. It’s a mouthful to say, but these headphones aim to be completely wireless and compete with the likes of Samsung’s IconX and Apple’s AirPods.
Android Pay is only successful as long as most users can add their credit cards to it, and Google has spent years building up the list of supported banks and credit unions. They’ve recently added 13 new banks in the latest update, hitting a major milestone for the mobile payment system.
If you’ve been holding out on a deal to buy a new HTC device, now’s your best chance. They’re running a 10:08 sale in commemoration of the time that’s on all of HTC’s press images (seriously, go double check) that runs from October 2nd through October 10th.
