Android / Google TV: Google Home App integrates a very practical tool
As promised by Google for several months, the company has updated its Google Home app in order to incorporate a feature especially expected from users of Google TV or Android TV-equipped TVs: the remote control. Google’s home automation app allows you to open a virtual remote control, on your smartphone screen, allowing you to display a code to be displayed on your TV, then access certain keys. We can take the opportunity to turn on the Google Assistant or change the volume.
Apple recommends Android, if you want to download apps from outside the App Store
While Apple has been the subject of several lawsuits over unfair competition, the company’s president, Tim Cook, defended himself during a conference organized by The New York Times. Thus, he denied the fact that Apple prevents consumers from installing apps without going through the Store. For him, there is a solution: Android. “If this is important to you, then you should buy an Android phone. From our point of view, it would be as if I were a car manufacturer and explain to a customer that it is better not to put airbags and seat belts in my car”Apple CEO said. An inconsequential comparison given the protection that Google offers thanks to Play Protect, including sideloaded apps.
OnePlus 10 Pro: Inspirational Design, Leaked Features
Like every year, OnePlus should, in early 2022, introduce its next high-end smartphones, OnePlus 10 and OnePlus 10 Pro. Although 2021 is not over yet, OnLeaks Leaker has once again stolen the first announcements from the manufacturer by publishing 3D renders of the OnePlus 10 Pro in partnership with Zouton. We can in particular detect its large wallpaper module which is reminiscent of the Galaxy S21 Ultra module and should be equipped with four devices. The smartphone will also benefit from a 6.7-inch battery, 5,000 mAh, and 128 or 256 GB of storage.
