Apollo: For a long while, we’ve had Android versions
named after desserts, with Android Petit Four (the first and probably most obscure Android
version name) starting the trend and Android Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread,
Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jellybean, KitKat, Lollipop, Marshmallow, Nougat, Oreo,
and Android Pie following suit. Apollo: However, Google decided that the next
version of Android, which we had nicknamed Android Q, wouldn’t follow this 10-year-old
pattern, instead naming the version Android 10. Apollo: The Vice President of Product Management
for Android said, “Our engineering team has always used internal code names for each
version, based off of tasty treats, or desserts, in alphabetical order. This naming tradition has become a fun part
of the release each year externally, too. But we’ve heard feedback over the years
that the names weren’t always understood by everyone in the global community.” Apollo: In my opinion, I feel like the dessert
Android names add character, and I am a bit sad to see them go. Apollo: I also think they did this because
this would get harder over time, can you think of a dessert starting with Q on the top of
your head? Imagine trying to come up with one for Android
Z. That would be hard. Also, what would they do after Android Z? Name it Android A? There isn’t an Android A, but after a couple
more releases people won’t be able to tell apart different versions. Apollo: Moving on, Stranger Things Incorporated,
or Netflix for short, is making a new section in their app called Collections. Apollo: Collections are groups of shows or
movies that Netflix groups together, like “Watch in One Weekend” (According to The
Verge. My sources are in the description.) Apollo: If you don’t understand it, it’s
like the special playlists that Spotify has (if you use Spotify) like Lo-Fi Beats, Chill
Lo-Fi Study Beats, Mellow Beats, listen, Lo-Fi study music really gets me into the working
mood, which is why I played a playlist I made of good study music while I wrote the script
for this. Apollo: This has been in technology news and
I decided to talk about it because these playlists are made by Netflix themselves rather than
Netflix’s algorithm. Apollo: To try this feature out, you have
to be on iOS and signed up to Netflix’s beta testing program, and if you meet those
requirements, then you should be able to try out the feature. Apollo: Next topic!!! Apollo: Do you use Google Photos? Check out that poll in the i-card in the top-right
corner of your screen and please answer that, I’m curious. Apollo: Anyways, Google Photos’ official
Twitter account said that there is a new feature coming out allowing you to search text inside
pictures, which would be great for finding pictures with confidential information, just
search it up. Apollo: After you search it up and find the
picture you’re looking for, you can click the Google Lens button and copy the text to
another app. Apollo: This works via Optical Character Recognition
or OCR. Apollo: OCR is technology recognizing text
in an image by processing the image and scanning for specific characters. Apollo: Next topic!!! Apollo: Remember Minecraft Earth, that Augmented
Reality video game where you can build Minecraft creations in real life? You can now pre-register for the Minecraft
Earth Android beta on the Google Play Store. Cool. Apollo: The final topic is… the Fortnite
B.R.U.T.E. Again. Epic’s nerfing it this time. Apollo: It will have fewer rockets which take
longer to fire, loses the ability to gather materials by stomping on trees and stuff,
and were made more durable, turning it into more of a transportation method than a weapon. Apollo: But Epic also added the Junk Rift,
which is stupidly overpowered, but it’s getting late for me, and that’s a topic
for another time. Apollo: If you enjoyed this video, please

is all I have for today and don’t forget to keep on ranting.
