Google Meet noise filtering now on mobile, 60-minute limit coming

Video conferencing has grown into a huge market in the span of just a few months and not just in terms of software. In addition to a rise in demand for computers, dedicated video conferencing equipment, webcams, and even cameras that can be used as webcams have also started popping up left and right.

Stadia on iOS made easy with a third-party custom browser

Game streaming is starting to become a big business but Apple doesn't seem to want any part of it. At least not until those services bend a knee and abide by its sometimes strange laws. That isn't sitting well with streaming services, naturally, but it also irking some gamers who just want to be able to play their PC or console games on their iPhones in bed. Thankfully, some very eager games have found a way around that, at least for Stadia, and all you need is a single-page web browser app.

That feature was born out of its IDEAS crowdsourcing campaign earlier this year and the company is now launching IDEAS 2.0 to let the OnePlus community shape OxygenOS' future.

When HMD Global took over the reins of launching Nokia phones, it promised to stand apart from the crowd not only through its pricing but, perhaps more importantly, through its commitment to software updates. In addition to sticking to a stock Android experience, the company promised fast and timely updates as they come.

Surface Duo to get an important software update next month

Most reviewers of the Surface Duo started out loving the device the moment they took it out of the box and held it in their hands. That honeymoon, however, was mostly short-lived thanks to some very noticeable bugs. While not deal breakers, the accumulation of these rough edges made an already experimental device feel even more unreliable.

The latter has recently formed a coalition of other developers slighted by Apple's App Store policy, calling for fairness in the app ecosystem. That coalition pretty much singles out Apple in its statements and curiously makes no mention of Google. That, however, could be changing soon if it is really moving to enforce a policy that will give it more cuts from sales made within its Google Play Store.
