    by Taylor Lyles on April 9, 2020 at 9:53 pm

    Motorola Motorola’s foldable Razr phone now comes in a blush gold color variant. The gold version features a black-and-gold color scheme, with the bottom back portion of the product featuring the gold coloring.

Although the foldable phone now comes in an additional color option, that doesn’t do anything to address the fact that the Razr was met with negative reviews. The phone’s camera was criticized for taking poor photos and having a hard time focusing on faces, an issue my colleague Dieter Bohn pointed out in his review. He also said its... Continue reading…

The rebranding follows a similar name change, confirmed yesterday, from the companion videoconferencing app Hangouts Meet to Google Meet. This latest modification was first hinted at by an updated G Suite support document listing the Google Chat name alongside Google Meet. Of course, this version of Chat is not to be confused with the other version of Chat, the name Google inexplicably gave its relatively new RCS-based Android messaging protocol.

  • Twitch is expanding Watch Parties beta to all partners, then all US creators after
    by Bijan Stephen on April 9, 2020 at 8:30 pm

    Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Twitch announced today that it’s bringing its beta version of Watch Parties, which allows streamers to broadcast Prime Video content, to all of its partners — and then all American creators. That means every streamer in the US on Twitch will be able to watch Prime content with their viewers, regardless of whether they’re a Twitch Partner. The company plans to bring Watch Parties worldwide eventually, with more news coming in the next few months. While the selection available in Watch Parties is highly curated — you can watch things like Jack Ryan and Star Trek, among many others — the feature is genuinely useful, as it’s a solution to the now-global problem of figuring out how to watch something with other people (without running afoul...
