Google is probably the best smartphone OEM that constantly updates its Pixel wallpaper collection on special days and feature updates. This quarter’s Pixel Feature Drop update is now available for Pixel phones with tons of new features and new wallpapers. The new wallpapers come under the Live Bloom section. And here you get to download all new Live Bloom wallpapers in high resolution.

Pixel Feature Drop December 2022

The new set of wallpapers is part of the latest Pixel feature drop. This is Google’s biggest Pixel feature drop update which brings many new features for the Pixel phone and Pixel watch as well. This is the last feature update of the year and it’s available just in time for the holidays.

If you are a Pixel user, then you will get a new feature drop update with many new features on your phone. However, the latest Pixel phones, the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, get a few extra features compared to other Pixel phones.

The new update includes Free Google One VPN, Clear Calling for noiseless and clear interactions, Smart Recorder, New Privacy Settings, Live Bloom Wallpapers, Sleep Profiles, and a few more. You can read all the features on this page.

Pixel’s Live Bloom Wallpapers

The new Wallpapers are available in the latest version of the Pixel Wallpapers app available on the Play Store for Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 7, and Pixel 7 Pro. Yes, these are exclusive to the Pixel 6 and Pixel 7 series. The new Live Bloom collection has four wallpapers and these are from Andrew Zukerman. These wallpapers are named as follows:

  • Boat Orchid
  • Flamingo Flower
  • Maki Dahlia
  • Persian Buttercup

These are dynamic Wallpapers that change colors throughout the day. Each wallpaper creates twelve dynamic shades. So you can say these are like live wallpapers.

Since these are only available for the Pixel 6 series and Pixel 7 series, other Pixel users would like to try these as well. Well for dynamic collection you need to use a modded app which is not available currently. But we have still wallpapers and each wallpaper is available in light and dark themes. You can check the previews below.

Note: Below are the preview images of the wallpapers and just for the representation. Preview is not in the original quality so don’t download from images. Use the download link given in the download section below.

Including dark and light shades, there is a total of 8 wallpapers that you can try on your phone. All walls in the Live Bloom collection are available in high quality of resolution 1080 x 2340 pixels. If you like the new collection, you can download them from Google Drive and from our Telegram group.

After downloading wallpapers, go to the download folder, and choose your favorite wallpaper that you want to set on your smartphone’s home screen or lock screen. Open it and then tap on the three-dots menu to set the wallpaper. That’s it.

One UI 5 is the latest UI based on Android 13 for Samsung Galaxy. After rolling out the stable Android 13 update for a slew of Galaxy phones, Samsung is now rolling out the update for the Galaxy A32 LTE, Galaxy A42, and Galaxy M22. Samsung continues to do an impressive job by providing the latest Android 13 update to most of its budget phones.

Samsung is on track to complete the One UI 5 and Android 13 rollout by this year. And if they complete this milestone, it will be the second OEM after Google to do so. The update is already available for most phones such as all flagship phones, Galaxy A51, Galaxy A22, Galaxy M62, Galaxy A52, Galaxy S10 Lite, Galaxy Note 10 Lite, Galaxy A72, and more.

Samsung Galaxy A32 LTE is getting the stable Android 13 update in Europe. It comes with the build number A325FXXU2CVK3. The Galaxy A42 Android 13 update is rolling out in South Korea with build number A426NKSU2DVK2. And the Galaxy M22 is getting the major Android 13 update in Europe with build number M225FVXXU4CVK3.

Soon the update for all three phones will be available in other regions where the device is available. As Android 13 is a major update, the size of the update could be around 2GB or more. So make sure to download the update using WiFi.

Now talking about the new features, all these three phones come with almost the same changes. Changes include new lock screen customization, new set of wallpapers, tweaked app icons, more color palettes for dynamic themes, improved clipboard, per-app language, enhanced security and privacy, and more. You can check the One UI 5 update changelog here.

Just like updates for other Galaxy phones, Android 13 for Galaxy A32 LTE, Galaxy A42, and Galaxy M22 is also rolling out in batches. This means it can take a few days to reach all users in the region where the update is available.

Sometimes the OTA update notification doesn’t work and so in that case you must check for the update manually. To check for the update, go to Settings > Software Update > Download and Install.

Before updating your phone to Android 13, make sure to take backup of your phone and charge it to at least 50%.

Samsung is unstoppable and everyone is in awe of the work Samsung is doing.

Earlier this month, Samsung also shared the official One UI 5 roadmap for different regions. And according to various roadmaps, the Galaxy S20 FE was planned to receive the update in November, at least for some regions. As planned, Samsung is now rolling out Android 13 based stable One UI 5 update for Galaxy S20 FE.

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE Android 13 update is rolling out in Russia. And soon the update will be available in other regions. But it may take more than a month for the update to be available to all. The update is available with build number G780FXXUAEVK3. This is the second major update for the Galaxy S20 FE and weighs more than other monthly updates. So make sure to use WiFi to download the update.

Galaxy S20 FE Android 13 Stable Update

Talking about new features and changes, the update brings a lot of changes including some changes in UI. Some of the main features are improved animations, new and big widgets, more color palette for the Material You, improved clipboard, per app language, improved privacy and security, and a bunch of other changes. Changes are going to be the same as the update for other Galaxy devices, so you can check the common changelog here. Also the update improves the Android Security Update to November 2022.

If you are a Galaxy S20 FE user in Russia, you can expect the OTA update soon. It will soon be available in other regions as well. Since the availability for each region doesn’t take time, you can check for the update manually in intervals from Settings > Software Update > Download and Install. Once the update is available, download the update using WiFi and install it.

Update – December 6

The Android 13 update for Galaxy S20 FE 5G and Exynos is now available in most regions. And Galaxy S20 FE LTE Snapdragon variant is also getting stable Android 13 and One UI 5 update. If you own the LTE variant expect the same changelog as other Galaxy S20 FE models.

WhatsApp is one of the widely used social platforms to communicate with friends and family. The platform is also popular because it can be used by both iOS and Android users to chat irrespective of the platform. Meta is now bringing one of the most awaited features on WhatsApp. Users can now use the same WhatsApp account on two phones. Here you will know the official way to use the same WhatsApp account on two different phones.

Many users have two or more devices and most of them would like to use the same WhatsApp on all of their devices. But as you know it was not possible to use the same WhatsApp account on more than one phone until now. To use the same WhatsApp on more than one phone required setup from the start and once the account is logged in on the new phone it automatically logs out from the first device. But now as Meta is officially bringing this feature, there is no need to follow any third party app or other alternatives.

This is the feature we all wanted since the early days of WhatsApp. So it’s a little late but at least now we don’t have to go through the long process of achieving the same using unofficial alternatives.

The new official feature is possible through the Linked Devices feature that was released almost a year ago. But till now it was only for WhatsApp web and not WhatsApp for phones. It allows accessing WhatsApp using WhatsApp Web on multiple devices through browsers without having to connect your phone to the Internet.

Since WhatsApp web doesn’t require you to enter a number, it’s quite easy to access on two devices. But when it comes to phones it is required to enter the phone number during the setup. Now WhatsApp officially supports multi device login with the same number. So here is the complete process. Remember that the new feature works on the latest version of WhatsApp.

Limitations of WhatsApp on Two Devices

Although the new feature allows using the same WhatsApp account on two phones, it is limited to Android phones. This means your secondary phone cannot be an iPhone. It only works on Android, at least for now. So if you have already logged into your WhatsApp account on your Android phone or iPhone, you can use the same WhatsApp number to log in on another Android phone. Now that all the extra stuff is covered it’s time for the detailed guide.

How to use the Same WhatsApp Number on Two Phones

  1. Install the latest version of WhatsApp on the first device and log in with your number. Skip this step if you already logged into your account on either Android or iPhone.
  2. Now install the latest WhatsApp build on your second device which should be Android (You can use iPhone once it is supported). If WhatsApp is already installed on your second phone, reinstall the app.
  3. With the account logged into the first device, open WhatsApp on the second device and start the setup by choosing the language and Agreeing to terms.
  4. Now when it asks for a Phone Number, tap three dots at the corner and select Link a device.
  5. It will show a QR code to Link another phone.
  6. Open WhatsApp on the first phone and go to Menu > Linked Devices > Link a Device and scan the QR Code.

  7. Now once you scan the QR, the WhatsApp on the second device will start syncing your account from the first phone.
  8. This can take time based on your WhatsApp database. Once the loading is complete, you will be able to use WhatsApp on the second device along with the first device.

Even by using the Link feature, you will have access to all the WhatsApp features on the secondary device.

Have doubts? Read On

Here are some common questions many people might have after following the guide.

Does WhatsApp work in real-time on both phones?

Yes, all devices logged in with the same number will show messages in real time. For example, if you send a message to someone from one device, the same will reflect on other devices at the same time.

Do I need both phones to connect to the Internet?

No, you only need the internet on the device on which you are using WhatsApp during that time. Also, you can connect to the Internet using any method WiFi or using Carrier Network.

Do I need SIM Card on the second phone to use the same WhatsApp account?

No, The second phone does not need to have a SIM Card of the same number or any SIM Card at all. The second phone only requires Internet using WiFi or a Cell network.

So there you have it, the complete guide to use the same WhatsApp account on two phones. This is going to be a super useful feature as we no longer have to back up and restore WhatsApp data just to use it on the secondary phone. If you still have any doubts, feel free to ask in the comment section.

Here are more details on it.

Can I watch local TV channels on a Smart TV?

Yes, you can watch local TV channels on a Smart TV. There are two different ways to watch local TV channels. Obviously, the traditional cable TV method is always available for you, but you can also use new ways to stream local channels on your Smart TV with OTT apps.

As I said earlier, there is a flurry of OTT apps available to choose from, with some apps are totally free, while some require a subscription to watch everything.

Talking about the free applications, then you can count in these apps – Peacock TV, Samsung TV Plus, The Roku Channel, Crunchyroll, Tubi TV, Plex, and a few more.

It is suggested to stick the antenna near your window or any open space in your house that is close to the TV. Once you have finalized the antenna’s placement, connect the cable from the antenna to your Smart TV. All done, now search for the local channels and start streaming.

The other method, as I already mentioned, you can install any streaming app of your choice and start streaming your favorite TV show or movie.

Does a Smart TV need a cable box for Netflix?

No, there is no need to connect a cable box to smart TV to watch Netflix content. You can simply download the Netflix app on your smart TV from the app store or channel store, then login with your credentials and start streaming your favorite show or movie on Netflix.

What is the downside of a Smart TV?

Performance is one of the key downsides of Smart TVs, they are not super responsive as the regular TVs, and you may face some stutter or lags on most Android TVs. Hopefully, Smart TV manufacturers will release more powerful TVs with upgraded processors and memory in the future.
