This time, we’ve covered one advantage for Pixel owners and one major downside for everyone who uses Twitter on their iPhone.
Unlike most other weeks, it’s a really tough time to pinpoint which story should get the top slot in the latest iteration of winners and losers.
On the more positive side of that equation, Echo Show 15 owners got a big surprise this week when the smart device doubled as a Fire TV. Apple Music also got a new karaoke feature that his fans are sure to love. of Apple Music Sing.
Conversely, Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision continues to face more hurdles as the US government now intervenes, and the Lightning cable era officially counts with the end date announced by the EU Commission. I’m here. Ultimately, it’s just a matter of the Pixel and the iPhone, both of which have a big impact on users.
Winner: Pixel 7
Google has stayed true to its word of beefing up its Pixel lineup with so-called “feature removal” moments when new and exciting skills are introduced to the company’s phones. To be fair, the content of this latest Feature Drop was well known ahead of time, but the features it offers are a big step up that put the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro ahead of the competition.
First of all, owners of the latest Pixel smartphones can now use Google’s VPN service at no extra charge. -A must-have feature these days, especially if you connect to Fi regularly. Having a VPN handy can help prevent hackers from stealing your information while you’re connected to your local network by masking your IP address.
As someone who currently subscribes to SurfShark VPN, I use it a lot, but the idea of getting VPN access for free makes me pretty jealous here at Camp iPhone. Only half of this new feature drop is that it also includes ‘Clear Call’.
As you might guess from the name, Clear Calling uses the new G2 Tensor chip to amplify your voice during calls and eliminate background noise for a smoother chat experience. Needless to say, if you recently invested in Google’s new phone, the future looks pretty good.
Loser: iPhone Twitter users
I’m not the only one struggling to keep track of all this Twitter drama. With the speed at which features are introduced and then removed, not to mention all of the very public disputes Elon has had with his former Twitter staff, it’s almost impossible to keep an eye on them all, but the occasional big one. It may cut open. Noise for everyone’s attention, and there was a leak this week that Twitter Blue charges could be higher for users who sign up via iPhone.
According to a report published by The Information, there seems to be a debate within Twitter over charging users who sign up for Twitter Blue via their iPhones $11 per month. The report suggests that this is a backlash against his 30% tax that Apple imposed on revenue earned from apps via the App Store.
Elon Musk recently met with Apple CEO Tim Cook after he accused Apple of pulling an ad from Twitter. It remains to be seen whether the recent conference has dispelled the notion of a surcharge for iOS users, but if not, it looks like the feud between the two companies isn’t over yet.
