This is CNet and here are the stories that matter right now.
The FCC voted to expand WiFi into the 6 gigahertz band, paving the way for new WiFi 6E connections that will be the fastest yet.
WiFi6 is a faster, more efficient spectrum that allows wireless access points like routers to better manage networks crowded with lots of users and client devices.
The newly announced Wi-Fi 6E will provide 1,200 megahertz of additional bandwidth, enabling users to work at faster speeds, even if the network is highly populated.
Apple and Google are addressing privacy concerns in the development of new coronavirus contact tracing technology.
The technology designed to alert users if they've come in contact with anyone that's received a positive Coronavirus diagnosis in the previous 14 days is said to be an opt-in feature on both Apple iPhones and Google Android devices.
To ensure further security, both companies are focusing on better encryption and working to protect any potentially identifiable information about a person's phone.
And finally, if you're the kinda person who gets a kick out of sending YouTube compilation videos to your friends in isolation, you're gonna wanna know about the new Airtime app.
The app enables multiple people to watch the same videos at the same time, like Netflix party, with a live video chat so you can see everyone's reactions in real time.
