Verizon partners with Bang & Olufsen on pricey Android TV soundbars

Verizon partnered with Bang & Olufsen on these new soundbars, so they should sound great.

What you need to know

  • Verizon partnered with Bang & Olufsen to create two high-end Stream TV soundbars.
  • The Stream TV Soundbar costs $399.99 and the Stream TV Soundbar Pro costs $999.99.
  • Android TV powers these soundbars with access to all of the latest streaming apps.

Verizon has announced that it has worked together with Bang & Olufsen to create two soundbars featuring its Stream TV. This means customers can access the features of the previous standalone Stream TV box with the expanded audio experience of a soundbar.

These soundbars each come with Dolby Atmos virtual surround sound, Wi-Fi 6, and run atop Android TV for great app support. These systems have 2GB of system RAM and 16GB of storage which should be more than enough to handle 4K streaming enabled by the HDMI 2.1 port for output with up to 4K 60Hz video support.

The cheaper Verizon Stream TV Soundbar has two HDMI ports for external devices, so you don't need to worry about taking up an HDMI port with this soundbar. You can easily plug in your game consoles or Blu-ray player into these ports to view them on your TV. This soundbar uses five speakers to produce its wide range of sound including three full-range speakers and two woofers. This soundbar should be able to stand toe-to-toe with some of the best soundbars you can get despite its low price.

The Verizon Stream TV Soundbar Pro takes things a lot further with major upgrades to the audio components. This soundbar comes with nine speakers, including four full range, three tweeters, and two woofers. Having a wider range of speakers like this allows the soundbar to recreate sounds more accurately and provide the necessary fidelity to create a convincing virtual surround effect. This soundbar also comes with wall-mounting hardware so you can keep your TV setup clean.

If you're looking for a way to save on these audio upgrades, Verizon has a promotion on accessories with up to 30% off your purchase when you buy three or more accessories.

Protect your kids by setting up a supervised YouTube account

YouTube Kids has been around since 2015 and has grown into a great place for children to explore what YouTube has to offer safely. In 2021, the company is expanding ways for younger viewers to see more of what's available from the streaming service, along with a more mature interface with supervised accounts. Instead of a separate app, these accounts will use the official YouTube app, so knowing how to set up a supervised account for kids on Youtube is important. If you want to protect your child from some of the less than appropriate content that can be seen on YouTube, then you'll want to be sure to have the supervised account properly set up. YouTube announced supervised accounts as a way for kids aged 9+ to see to more of what the service offers while still under the guidelines set by their parent. So, whether you have picked up one of the best phones for kids or maybe a tablet like the Lenovo Smart Tab M10 HD that has Google's Kids Space for your child, here&#

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE review: Better phone, worse price

This upgrade is an uphill battle for Samsung thanks to steep competition. It's hard to believe that it's been a year and a half since Samsung redefined the "flagship killer" concept with the Galaxy S20 FE . At the time, the phone blew us away with its quality, delivering a true flagship experience for a significantly lower price than a "regular" Galaxy S20. The Galaxy S21 FE was rumored to be released the entire second half of 2021, and now it's finally here. The Galaxy S21 FE debuts with some of the expected upgrades over its predecessor but still retains many of the points that made the S20 FE a more affordable device. You won't find a brand new camera array on this phone when compared to 2020's device — that's a 12MP sensor for the main and ultra-wide lenses, while an 8MP sensor still resides behind the 3X telephoto lens — but Samsung has upgraded the styling to be more in line with the Galaxy S21 and the rumored look of the Galaxy

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people. It doesn't help that stock levels remain really tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we here at Android Central have seen PS5s stay in stock is between 15 to 20 minutes (often just a few minutes, though). That's also at random times, so finding a PS5 is a truly challenging task. Sony warned it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers promise more are coming and that Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called the system a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. And after spending a few months with the PS5, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive
