You can now use “Find my phone” voice command with Google Home

Google Home is one of the most popular speakers on the market offers quite a few Google Home skills. Starting this week, Google Home owners will be able to use one more voice command: “Find my phone.”

Google enabled the new voice command earlier today, so Home users should be able to test it very soon. “Where’s my phone” or “find/ring my phone” are the commands one must use in order for Google Home to pin their smartphones.

But the new feature is a little bit more complex than that, as Google Home can also turn up the volume on the smartphone, which means …


Twitter Lite app is made for countries where connectivity costs a fortune or is hard to find

Twitter is testing a new “lite” version of its Android app. This is an app version of a mobile web site it launched earlier this year called, quite appropriately, Twitter Lite. It requires less mobile data to work. The idea is to allow mobile users to employ Twitter in emerging markets where data is expensive or hard to find. The app has been added to the Google Play Store, but only in the Philippines where mobile data is expensive and slow.

Identical to the mobile web version of Twitter Lite, the app is an “experiment” according to Twitter, and the company is considering bringing the app …

The gold iPhone X might be extremely hard to find at launch, according to analyst


Tomorrow, September 12, Apple will (likely) announce three
brand new iPhone models, probably including an iPhone X – the company’s very
first handset to sport an OLED display. Apple fans (and maybe not only) are certainly excited about
this iPhone X, especially since it’s supposed to be the only one among the new
models to have thin bezels around its display. Unfortunately, just as
previously reported, it looks like the iPhone X will be hard to find at launch.

 

According to well-informed KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, less
than 10,000 iPhone X units are being produced daily. Obviously, this …

Yay, Google is making the search app on Android devices even better, the company announced today. If you’re an avid searcher for pictures of food, fantastic destination places or just beautiful people, the latest Google Image Search update is going to help you find the right images.

Now, how will that work? You’ll notice …

We bet you can't find all the crafty cats hiding in these photos

TwitterFacebook

Cats are the masters of hide-and-seek.

Whether they’re stalking through the undergrowth or sliding beneath carelessly placed piles of clothes, those whiskery queens of disguise know how to disappear when they want to.

On Sunday night, Twitter Moments rounded up 16 gloriously puzzling “spot the cat” photos. Some are fairly obvious, others take a moment or two, and a few are fiendishly difficult.

See how many cats you can find.

Here is why you can't find your favorite Nokia-branded smartphone yet

It’s true that HMD promised to bring all three Nokia-branded smartphones in just about every meaningful market by the end of June. Unfortunately, the Finnish company has yet to achieve what it said in its previous statements.

Although it might be that many countries have already received one or two of the Nokia smartphones, stocks are dwindling, and HMD is hardly able to keep up with the high demand.

If you’ve already purchased the Nokia 3 or 5, then you can consider yourself lucky, as HMD is now gathering data from suppliers and will announce new release …

Facebook rolls out Find Wi-Fi feature everywhere in the world

Last year, Facebook launched a new feature called Find Wi-Fi on iPhone and Android, but it was only made available in a handful of countries. The new functionality would allow Facebook users who are traveling to find Wi-Fi hotspots nearby.

Well, starting today, Facebook announced that it’s expanding the availability of Find Wi-Fi globally on both the Android and iOS platforms. Users who receive the feature on their smartphones will be able to locate available Wi-Fi hotspots that have been shared by businesses with Facebook from their Page.

In order to find …

The wait is over to find out the sexes of Beyoncé's twins

TwitterFacebook

After Beyoncé and Jay Z did such a great job of being themselves, they kindly welcomed miniature versions into the world.

The superstar couple’s twins are reportedly a boy and a girl. What a perfect Father’s Day gift for Jay Z, who is the only dad in the entire world today. 

According to TMZ, the twins were born a few days ago but remain in the hospital due to a “minor issue.” 

The dedicated Bey Hive discovered images of a floral delivery at the hospital that looks suspiciously like something one of their celebrity friends would send to parents of a twin boy and girl whose names happen to start with B and J.  Read more…

Here is how much Google pays to those who find Android security holes

Do you know that you can get paid for finding security issues in Android? It is basically what Google offers with its Android Security Rewards (ASR) program, launched about two years ago. Rewards vary wildly depending on the nature of the vulnerability discovered, but Google says the average compensation paid to individuals is $2,150 for every valid claim they make, and dozens of researchers have received payments of $10,000 or more over the last two years. In total, over $1,5 million have been paid so far to teams and individuals contributing with vulnerability reports.

How to find great deals and discounts on Android and iOS apps

Name someone who doesn’t like deals, we’ll wait! Getting a quality or, in all honesty, any paid app on the cheap is one of life’s little pleasures. 

Thanks to Google’s recent policy change Android apps can now go completely free. The same applies to iOS apps, which have had the ability to go free for a long time now.
But with so many apps on both the App Store and the Play Store, it’s really hard to keep track on the ones that have had their prices slashed. Of course, most media outlets usually break the news if a high-profile app gets a price change, …
