Plex Discover to Leave Beta and Expand its Media Collection In April last year, Plex announced Discover - its JustWatch alternative - and made it available to the vast majority of its users as a public beta. During this period, Plex has added a substantial catalog of movies and TV series and the ability to link to the content in popular streaming services like Disney+, HBO Max, Hulu, Netflix, Prime Video, and more. Taking a cue from Google TV, Plex Discover also allows users to have a central watchlist which saves them from creating separate lists inside each app.
Plex has confirmed to Android Authority that Discover will be released as...

YouTube Gets a New Start-Up Sound, And That’s Considered Important If you have a smart TV or a TV box or stick, prepare for the new way YouTube will greet you. As you launch the app, you will hear the unique sound that sounds like no other app audio introduction. And this new sound comes with a unique insight on how it has been created and recorded.
The sound can be described as “sophisticated” despite being short enough at about two seconds (the official video on YouTube is 4 seconds long, yet the fadeout part of it is nearly as long as the sound itself). It’s easily recognizable, though, starting with...

This led to expectations, mostly to those of an event Rockstar would hold to commemorate the origins. And when these expectations failed, it turns out Rockstar is not the one to...

TikTok Added New Features With Huge Potential Instagram is trying to become more like TikTok. To retain a young audience, IG copies much of the content and many features of the competitor's platform. Perhaps, this is the reason why the Chinese giant has added Photo Mode, which could bring new opportunities and further worsen the position of Instagram.
A new feature on TikTok invites users to add still photos, creating a carousel. In fact, it looks the same as Instagram. The main difference is that the Chinese platform also offers to add a soundtrack to the photo carousel. Although this seems to be more of a provocation, the...
