    Google Smart Speakers Affected by Sonos Victory Now you need to adjust the volume on each speaker manually. After Sonos won the case and the US International Trade Commission, owners of Google smart speakers faced more changes. From now on, device users have to forget about the group volume controller. Instead, they need to adjust the volume of each speaker separately and by hand. There is no group volume controller anymore. Before Sonos won the case, users were able to navigate the volume of the speaker using the volume rocker on their phones. However, the option disappeared after the legal ruling. Once the rules came out on the...

    The Sims 5: Coming Out in 2022? The Sims franchise has been dominating the niche of life simulator games for over 20 years already.

The current generation of the game includes 9 kits, 18 stuff packs, 11 expansion packs, 10 game packs. Besides, the modding community has generated thousands of free mods. So, yeah, The Sims 4 is still exciting to play, but we are all starving for a new generation with revamped graphics and gameplay. But Will it Come Out in 2022? The...

    See Your Metaverse Version with Snapchat Metaverse is probably the word of the year (and what Facebook gone Meta promises may be just the beginning). A virtual space that embraces all the aspects of our online existence is an incredibly fruitful idea. But what will we look like there?
