  • Google Podcasts reaches 100 million-downloads milestone - With more people now consuming podcasts than ever before, it kind of makes sense that Google Podcasts would see an uptick in downloads. It has, however, skyrocketed to the 100 million-downloads milestone over on the Google Play Store.

  • Clubhouse for Android is working, could see release in May [Updated] - The “drop-in audio chat” app Clubhouse has become massively popular on iOS over the past couple of months, but it lacks an Android app entirely. Following an interview in late February where the app’s cofounder revealed that an Android app was the “top feature” in development for the company, a teaser for its release has hit the web.

  • Next year’s iPhones will have 48-megapixel cameras and no mini option: Kuo - The 2022 iPhone lineup will feature substantial changes to the camera system, according to analyst Ming-chi Kuo in an investor note reported on by MacRumors and AppleInsider.

  • Facebook adds state vaccine information to the top of the News Feed for US users - As all adults across the US become eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, Facebook is making it easier for its users to find information based on where they live. The company has started rolling out a feature that adds a box with state-specific information about where to get a COVID-19 vaccine at the top of the News Feed for every US user living in a state where the general public is eligible to receive the shot.

  • Samsung tries to woo iPhone users with a browser-based Galaxy test drive - Samsung has released a new website to give iPhone users “a little taste of Samsung” from their mobile browser. When visited on an iPhone, the site prompts users to add it to their phone’s home screen, after which it turns into a shortcut to a simulated Samsung Galaxy device. The site appears to be the work of Samsung New Zealand, MacRumors reports.

  • Facebook’s first crack at a Clubhouse competitor is a new Q&A platform called Hotline - Facebook’s experimental app development division, the NPE Team, has released a new Q&A platform that borrows concepts from buzzy, audio-only social network Clubhouse but with dashes of live-streaming thrown in.

  • Flappy Bird clone hacked into playable macOS push notification - In a new video, a developer has shown off a playable version of viral hit Flappy Bird running inside a macOS push notification. It’s the work of Neil Sardesai, who previously made headlines with a clip of Pong running inside a macOS app icon. The hack has yet to receive a public release, but it’s still a neat proof of concept.
