What is Xbox Game Pass for Android?

When Microsoft first revealed its game streaming service, it was known as Project xCloud. Now that it's leaving beta soon, cloud streaming is another feature within Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, the company's game subscription service that also bundles Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass, EA Play. Cloud streaming within Xbox Game Pass for Android supports a couple of hundred games at the moment, including popular EA titles and some of Bethesda's greatest hits like Fallout 4, Skyrim, and more.

Xbox Game Pass itself is a bit similar to Netflix. For one low monthly cost, members are treated to a rotating catalog of hundreds of games, including Xbox Game Studios exclusives that launch into the service the day they release for everyone else.

Every first-party Xbox title from across Xbox Game Studios and Bethesda Softworks is made available in Xbox Game Pass day one of launch, so you can start streaming it as soon as it's available. This including upcoming games like Arkane Austin's vampire-hunting immersive shooter Redfall and Bethesda Game Studios' role-playing game Starfield, both games that are set to launch in 2022.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
