Have you found your Android device no longer responding to “Hey Google?” Jack Wallen offers up a couple of ways to fix this problem.
I cannot tell you how many times this has happened to me. I call out to my Android device, “Hey, Google, call so and so,” only to have said device refuse to obey my command to call so and so. It’s frustrating, especially when one of the appeals of modern smartphones is hands-off usage while driving.
This feature also makes daily usage far more efficient. So when it doesn’t work, it’s not only eye-roll worthy, it makes you want to chuck that device into the couch and shout to the developers to fix the issue. Well, fortunately there’s a much faster way than waiting for the Google devs to resolve the problem. In fact, the problem is usually fixed fairly easily.
Let me show you how.
Honor V40 Specifications Allegedly Leaked; May Come With MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ SoC, 45W Wireless Charging
Honor V40 specifications have allegedly been leaked in their entirety. The phone has been in the news since October last year and was expected to debut towards the end of 2020, but that did not happen. Now, the specifications for Honor V40 have been leaked, suggesting that it will come with a quad rear camera setup, the MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ SoC, and a 4,000mAh battery, among other details. As of now, the company has not shared any information on Honor V40 and there is no launch date for it either.
Honor V40 specifications (expected)
According to Chinese publication MyDrivers, Honor V40 is expected to run Magic UI 4.0, based on Android 10. It may feature a 6.72-inch OLED display with 2,676×1,236 pixels resolution. It is expected to come with 120Hz refresh rate and 300Hz touch sampling rate. Under the hood, Honor V40 could be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1000+
If you’d like to prioritize the wireless networks your Android devices connect to, Jack Wallen has found just the app you need.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic hit, I have three different networks in my home–one for work, one for home, and one as a backup. The thing is, Android isn’t always smart enough to know which wireless network I prioritize. One would think a feature like this would be baked into the Android platform. It’s not.
In order to make that work to my liking, I use an app called WiFi Prioritizer. With this free application, I can set the exact priority I need for my home network and even temporarily disable networks that I don’t want the phone to use.
So if you’re looking for the ability to prioritize your networks in Android, this app might be just what you need.
