The best alternative for WhatsApp is now even better, fighting with robots and an app to save the climate. You'll find that and more in this weekly overview of the best Android apps.
Read on after the ad.
The arguably best chat app got a major update last week. Telegram 8.0 introduces many innovations, but the biggest improvement has to do with live streams. From now on, there is no longer a limit on the number of people who can watch a stream at the same time.
In fact, Telegram has become a direct competitor for apps such as Instagram and TikTok. After all, media makers can now serve an unlimited audience. Telegram is going more and more in the ‘media side' anyway, because since update 8.0 you can also scroll through channels much easier. The app notifies you when you have read all messages from a channel, so that you can move on to the next.
Whole has only one goal: to make you happier. The new app does this by monitoring your mental health. Whole keeps asking how you're doing and, if you feel like it, you can also keep a journal. If you don't feel like this, you can also keep it short by giving this day a thumbs up or down.
Furthermore, Whole has all kinds of tricks to actively work with your thoughts. For example, there are breathing exercises for when it all becomes too much for you. Also cool: you can meditate with Whole. There are even special sleep meditations in the app to help you get a good night's sleep.
Climate change is a fact and humanity must change to keep life enjoyable for future generations. An app that can help with this is Greenr. This app is all about your carbon footprint (and reducing it). To measure is to know, so calculating your unique footprint is the foundation of Greenr.
For example, you can keep track of exactly how much carbon dioxide is needed to produce a salad or steak. With Greenr you can also keep track of how much CO2 you emit in the car, train or plane. Once your footprint is known, the app gives you all kinds of handy tricks to reduce your impact on the earth.
Throwing away an old phone is a waste. Most likely you can still use it fine, for example with Camo. This app turns your old smartphone into a webcam in no time. That is of course very useful in these times of working from home.
Your colleagues or classmates will thank you, because your old Android device probably has a better camera than your laptop. Setting up Camo is easy and you can use the app in all popular programs, such as Google Meet, Zoom and Microsoft Teams. Camo is currently in beta, so you may encounter some minor glitches while using it.
5. Titan Glory
Not deep, but very nice. That's Titan Glory in a nutshell. In this chaotic shooter, gigantic robots (mechs) compete against each other. It doesn't come from a storyline, because before you realize it you are in a gigantic robot and you try to make your opponents a head smaller.
You can unlock a total of twelve robots and the battle takes place in one of the six arenas. In addition to battling mindlessly, you can also choose other game modes. Titan Glory is an online game that you play together with up to eleven others. Speaking of which, sometimes it is difficult to connect to a server. Let's hope these problems will soon be a thing of the past.
