The new HBO Max app is now available for download: This one is different

The new HBO Max app

A while ago it became clear that HBO Max would be introducing a new app and now the time has come. When you open the old app, you’ll receive a message saying that you need the new app to use the streaming service. You’ll notice that the streaming service looks pretty similar.

There is a new sports section, where you can watch the Olympic Games and major cycling races, among other things. You need an additional subscription (so-called “add-on”) for this. It’s good to know that your billing information will remain the same and your viewing history, profiles, and viewing list will transfer over.

“Google Pixel Watch 3 XL is coming: see the renders”

Leaked renders already reveal that Google will launch the Pixel Watch 3 later this year, but it doesn’t stop there. The search giant is also likely to introduce a larger smartwatch: the Pixel Watch 3 XL. As the name suggests, the Pixel Watch 3 XL has a larger display.

The screen will be 1.45 inches, while the regular Pixel Watch 3 will have a 1.2-inch screen. This reaches a size of 45 mm. According to the information, the Watch 3 XL is also slightly thicker, which allows a larger battery to be installed in the watch.

WhatsApp video calling just got better with these new features

WhatsApp on two smartphones

In addition to sending messages, emojis and photos, WhatsApp has had a (video) calling function for years. This makes it easy to connect to your contacts or groups. WhatsApp now has a number of great communication options for your phone and computer. You can now make video calls with up to 32 people, which was previously only possible with voice calls.

To prevent you from seeing 32 faces, the app puts the speaker in the spotlight. This means that whoever is speaking appears more on the screen. Finally, you can enjoy a Netflix series or YouTube video with the whole group, because now you can share your screen with audio. This way, everyone in the conversation is watching and listening.
