    Emojis add a little personality to your messages and social media posts, and there are so many of them to pick from that they’re practically their own language at this point.

    How to Turn Multiple Google Home Devices Into a Connected Speaker System

    25/02/2020 Duration: 02min

    At some point, I decided to go all-in on having Google Home devices around. I love being able to ask what the weather is, set timers and reminders, and figure out how old an actor is by just asking, so much so that there’s a Google Home device in almost every room of my home now. For the rooms that don’t have one, a Mini is likely close enough for it and pick up my voice.

There’s the larger-than-life action, the permeating smell of buttery popcorn and the volume cranked up to a ridiculous level.

    I do not love dating, but I love going on dates. The problem with dating is rarely the actual date, but all the stuff that happens before (like finding someone to date) and after (getting that person to date you again or leave you alone) can really suck.
