    FaceTime is coming to Android, but not the way you think

    facetime android

    If you say video calling, you say FaceTime, at least for Apple users. FaceTime is a hugely popular video calling app, but it doesn't work on Android devices. On the WWDC 2021-event Apple announced that FaceTime will soon be available on Android devices. However, that does not work via its own FaceTime app that Apple will release. The only way to participate in such a conversation is through an invitation. A friend, acquaintance or colleague with an iPhone running on iOS 15 can create a video call and share it with you. So you can dial in to such a FaceTime call from your smartphone or tablet with Android.

    google pixel 5 review

    When setting up your Android device, you will be able to choose from more search engines from September. The companies behind the search engines no longer have to pay Google for a place on the selection screen. Now the companies pay Google – the maker of the Android operating system – annually through an auction system. The three highest bidders per EU country appear on the screen in that country, the rest are left out. So for search engines competing with Google, the two changes are positive news. For you as an Android user too, because from September you can more easily set your favorite search engine, immediately when you start using your new smartphone or tablet.

    “This is the Samsung Galaxy M32: huge battery and 48 megapixel camera”

    Samsung Galaxy M31

    Several Samsung Galaxy M32 specifications have appeared online. As with every smartphone in the Galaxy M series, the large battery is the spearhead of the device. The screen is 6.4 inches and it is an AMOLED panel. The resolution is 2400 by 1080 pixels and that combination ensures that everything looks sharp. Nothing specific is said about the refresh rate. We therefore assume that it is 60Hz, which is standard for affordable smartphones. Samsung has also managed to put a 6000 mAh battery in the device. How fast the M32 can charge or what kind of charger Samsung provides is still unknown. Because of that huge battery, the phone should last quite a long time on a full charge.
