Samsung Galaxy Fold 2, 5G Galaxy Z Flip will launch in August 2020

Image
Samsung is expected to launch two new foldable smartphones in the second half of the year. An affordable foldable handset model is expected to hit the market next year, industry insiders said on Sunday. Samsung is expected to present the Galaxy Fold 2 and the 5G variant of the Galaxy Z Flip together with its flagship phablet Galaxy Note 20 at an event in August, the news agency Yonhap reported, citing the industry sources. But his affordable foldable smartphone, probably called the Galaxy Fold Lite, is unlikely to make its debut at the event, they said.
The South Korean technology giant was said to have released a version of its foldable smartphone that costs almost half the price of a normal Galaxy Fold. Technical experts have predicted that the Galaxy Fold 2 will have a 7.7-inch screen and a 6.23-inch cover display when unfolded, both of which are larger than the 7.3-inch or 4.6-inch displays of the predecessor. Samsung is expected to use ultra-thin glass (UTG) for the Galaxy Fold 2,…

Google Stadia will lose the game streaming war if it remains valueless

The service isn't dead, but it needs a severe shake-up if it wants to avoid being put on life support. I have admittedly been a Stadia skeptic ever since its announcement.
Not because I believed the service would be bad or that it couldn't deliver its promises of instant game streaming, but because I didn't know who it was for. I certainly wasn't its target audience, and I didn't understand what it could offer that other services or consoles couldn't. I still don't, and that makes me feel like Google Stadia will ultimately lose the game streaming war unless it undergoes a major overhaul.

Stadia launched as a premium service back in November 2019. Still, it wasn't until recently in February that I got to play using a Buddy Pass — to which I can thank Android Central's own Daniel Bader. Being able to play Metro Exodus immediately, no loading screens or downloads required, felt like I was witnessing magic. It's hard to overstate or even describe th…

Peloton for iPhone and iPad adds Chromecast support for big screen workouts

Image
The Peloton app for iOS has been updated today with support for Chromecast. This adds another way for Peloton users to view workouts on the big screen.

The Peloton app has supported AirPlay for a while now. This allows users to beam content from their iPhone or iPad directly to an Apple TV or AirPlay-equipped TV. The new support for Chromecast, however, vastly expands those options.

Now that the Peloton app for iOS supports Chromecast, users can send content from their iPhone or iPad to any TV that has Chromecast functionality built-in, or any TV with a Chromecast dongle

Peloton explains:

Introducing Chromecast – a new way to work out with Peloton on your big screen by Casting from your iPhone or iPad. Experience an even smoother class and focus on your workout without interruptions from calls and notifications. Flow, stretch, and build strength right from your living room.
In addition to the Peloton Tread and Bike hardware, anyone can sign up for the Peloton Digital membership for $12.…

Peloton for iOS now supports Chromecast

Peloton’s iPhone and iPad users can now Chromecast workouts to larger screens.

The Peloton for iOS app now supports Chromecast so you can stream your workouts from a larger screen. Previously, this feature was only available to Android users while the Peloton bike was only able to cast classes to a supported device via Miracast, which meant that iOS users were left out of the functionality entirely.

With the update, iOS users can now cast their classes to a screen that supports Chromecast or a TV with the Chromecast dongle plugged in. The move comes as Peloton, having gone public last year, said it would be working to make its classes more accessible from more devices and price points. A digital-only subscription to Peloton costs $12.99 a month, allowing users to workout with their own home or gym bikes or treadmills.

To cast classes onto your Chromecast-supported screen, open up the class you want to take and look for the Chromecast icon on the upper right corner. Select it and choose…
