    • Here's a simple way to enable call forwarding using Google Fi
      von Samuel Contreras am August 1, 2021 um 5:00 pm

      Enabling call forwarding on Google Fi is quick and easy, making Fi a great choice for a backup line. It's also one of the best cell phone plans you can get for international roaming. If you still want to make sure you get your calls on another device, you can use Google Fi's call forwarding feature from the app or web page. It's quick to set up and can be toggled as needed after that. How to enable call forwarding on Google Fi Before getting started, there are a couple of things to know. First, your Google Fi account will need to be active to use call forwarding. Second, if you signed up for an unlimited plan but didn't plan on using your Fi data for a while, you can switch to the Flexible plan to save some money. This guide will use the Google Fi app, but you can also do this on the web by signing in to your Google Fi account at fi.google.com. Once signed in, click settings, then call forwarding to follow along starting on step 3. Open the Google Fi app on Android or iOS and si...

    • No matter how stable Android gets, it's still too hard to master
      von Ara Wagoner am August 1, 2021 um 4:00 pm

      "Oh, that's easy to turn off if you don't like it" is the biggest lie in Android. This Sunday morning, I am hopefully sleeping in my own bed again after three weeks in Texas visiting family and friends. Going home is always fun in seeing what's changed, what hasn't, and what tech support I can do in person instead of over the phone half a continent away. I got some Fredericksburg peaches — which are the best on the continent, sorry, Georgia — I caught up with friends I haven't seen in years, and I got a nice dose of reality when helping my parents with their Android phones and laptops. I have been an Android user since early 2012 and have been writing Android how-to guides since 2014, so I like to think I've got a pretty good grasp on the ins and outs of just about every core Android feature and Google service. But trying to troubleshoot some wonk on my dad's Pixel 3a XL surrounding Quick Settings and his Golf Pad app — which may be one of the worst app UIs I've seen in years...

    • Every PS5 video game delay in 2021 — and their upcoming release dates
      von Jennifer Locke am August 1, 2021 um 3:00 pm

      The COVID-19 pandemic has forced developers to adapt their work pipelines and finish games from home. This has led to multiple delays. Last year began with a slew of high-profile game delays, most notably Cyberpunk 2077 and the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, but then COVID-19 struck and threw the games industry through a loop. Now that we're into 2021, we'll only be seeing more delays as developers truly begin to understand the effects of the pandemic on their work pipeline. One of the first major delays to come this year was Hogwarts Legacy, being pushed into 2022. We've compiled a list of every game that has been delayed into 2021 and beyond. Some of these games have been delayed indefinitely, while others have release windows or a final release date. We'll continually update this list as more games are delayed.

    • How to watch Formula 1 Hungarian Grand Prix 2021 online from anywhere
      von Anthony Spadafora am Juli 31, 2021 um 8:00 pm

      We've reached the halfway point in Formula 1's 2021 season and drivers and teams will be in Hungary for what looks to be a heated Hungarian Grand Prix this weekend and we have all the details on how you can watch the race on TV or online. The ongoing rivalry between Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton and Red Bull's Max Verstappen came to a head earlier this month at the British Grand Prix when the two drivers collided during the first lap of the race. While Verstappen crashed his car into the tire barrier and was taken to the hospital, Hamilton went on to take the podium after passing Ferrari's Charles Leclerc with just three laps left in the race. As Verstappen is currently in first place with 185 points with five wins and eight podiums, winning this weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix could be enough to move Hamilton out of second place and back to the top of the standings. Hamilton also currently holds the best lap record at the Hungaroring with a time of one minute and sixteen seconds which h...

    • Here's a few quick steps to help you change NAT type on your PS5
      von Samuel Tolbert am Juli 31, 2021 um 7:00 pm

      No one likes encountering slow, unstable connections when playing on their PS5. If you've checked your router and everything seems fine, it might be your NAT. If you've got a Strict NAT type, it can block you off from connecting to many players online, which will increase search times for matches and make it more difficult to play with friends.

    • Best China VPN 2021
      von Luke Edwards am Juli 31, 2021 um 6:00 pm

      Those of you who've travelled to China in the past have more than likely experienced the effects of the Great Firewall - a controlled censoring of the internet which blocks a number of websites and services popular in the western world. The best VPN (Virtual Private Network) services can help you with this. Whether you're there on business or vacation, having the likes of Instagram, Facebook, Skype and WhatsApp blocked means you won't be able to keep in touch with family and friends back home. With streaming services like Netflix blocked too, you may find yourself more than a little bored in your hotel room. With this in mind, setting up a virtual private network (VPN) is a no-brainer for those travelling to China, as it'll unblock all the sites you need to get your fix. The use of a VPN is, as expected, not exactly kosher, so we're not condoning it ourselves. We have, however, rounded up five of the best options, if you decide to explore your choices.

    • Poll: Are you willing to wait to get the Wear OS 3 update?
      von Derrek Lee am Juli 31, 2021 um 3:00 pm

      Other Wear OS smartwatches will be upgraded long after the Galaxy Watch 4 launches. Wear OS 3 was in a weird state of limbo for a while, which only the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 confirmed to be released with the upgrade. Now, Google has confirmed other smartwatches, current and upcoming, will eventually be updated as well. The last time we asked about upcoming Wear OS watches, our readers leaned toward the Galaxy Watch 4. So now we want to know if the recent Wear OS update news has changed anything. Are you still holding out for the Galaxy Watch 4? As it stands, it seems that the Galaxy Watch 4 may be the only smartwatch with Wear OS 3 for a while, at least officially. There are rumors of a Google Pixel Watch, but nothing is official, and rumors are scarce. Fitbit has also indicated that it will launch a Wear OS device, but we don't know when it's expected. Fossil has been a bit more forthcoming about its plans. The company currently makes some of the best Android smartwat...

    • The Google Pixel Watch rumors are heating up — here's what you need to know
      von Chris Wedel am Juli 31, 2021 um 1:00 pm

      It appears that Google is finally getting into the smartwatch game with the first Pixel Watch this year — here's what we know so far. From the beginnings of Google's wearable strategy, it has always relied on other OEMs to carry the hardware torch for its software. However, that doesn't mean fans of Wear OS, and Android Wear before it, haven't been clamoring for an official smartwatch from the software giant. After years of rumors for a Google-branded wearable that always ended in disappointment for Wear OS fans, 2021 looks to be the year that a Google Pixel Watch may actually arrive alongside the Pixel 6 lineup. Here's what we know so far about the Pixel Watch. Jump to: Announcement & release date Price Models Design Specs Pixel Watch: Announcement and release date As of right now, we don't have anything official from Google in terms of a Pixel Watch being released this year. However, far more leaks and information have pointed toward this being the year a Google...

    • Cloud-based Windows is cool but don't forget about Parallels for Chrome
      von Jerry Hildenbrand am Juli 31, 2021 um 12:00 pm

      It's all about the Benjamins. Chromebooks are quickly becoming bonafide business computers, and as JR Raphael points out at Computerworld, it's not because of what Google is doing. If you think about it, there really isn't anything else Google can do. Chrome OS is a stable and functional operating system that can run complicated and demanding software. Google's services are all cloud-based, so all of them work extremely well on every connected device from the cheapest phone to the best Chromebook. At this point, Google can call Chromebooks a success. Chrome OS is great, but plenty of software still needs Windows. The problem, especially for business users, is that most software needed for day-to-day tasks in the workplace isn't written for Chrome OS. There are plenty of useful substitutions that work really well. Still, the names we all know, like Adobe Photoshop or Microsoft Visual Studio, are names we know for a reason — those are the tools the corporate world uses. Thank...
