Like a lot of online subscriptions these days, family plans are now becoming more popular. This is because it allows more users to use a service in a more affordable manner without having to buy individual subscriptions. If you’re a Nintendo Switch owner, you might be interested in a change the company is making.
In a tweet by Nintendo of Europe, the company has revealed that they will soon be allowing Nintendo Switch Online subscribers to convert their existing memberships into a Family Membership. This means that if you had a solo membership with some time left on it, you won’t have to wait for it to expire before switching to a Family Membership.

The Nintendo Switch shares very similar hardware as devices like the NVIDIA Tegra gaming tablets which run on Android, and as such, it was not a complete surprise to learn that there were some modders who managed to get Android up and running on the console. It seems that development of this mod has come a long way because it is expected that in the next few days, an unofficial Android ROM for the console will be available for download.
The ROM for the Switch is said to be based on LineageOS 15.1 which is based on Android 8.1 Oreo, which means that as far as users are concerned, it is a pretty up-to-date build of Android. We’re not sure if there are plans to create a ROM based on Android Q, but for now we reckon it’s still a pretty solid build.
The first Razer Phone was very well received as it was a proper gaming phone with a unique 120Hz screen. The company’s software support for this device has left a lot to be desired, though. It’s still on Android Oreo and even the security patch is a year old. The company has now said that the Razer Phone Android Pie update is going to be out soon.
It’s an update that many Razer Phone owners are looking forward to. It brings a number of new features to the device in addition to important bug fixes. Razer hasn’t provided a concrete date as yet but confirms that the Android Pie update for the Razer Phone should be out soon.
To say that the PlayStation 4 has been a massive hit for Sony would be an understatement. The console has consistently outsold the Xbox One and will soon cross another major milestone. According to the figures officially revealed by Sony, it won’t be long before the PS4 sales cross 100 million units.
Sony did caution last year that the PlayStation 4 sales had fallen for the very first time year-over-year. That has happened once again in 2019 but it’s still a pretty strong showing by Sony’s console. The company sold 17.8 million PS4 units in the fiscal year ending March 31st, slightly down from the 19 million units sold in the previous fiscal year.
While music streaming services such as Spotify can be streamed directly through certain speakers, the same cannot be said for Apple Music. Instead, if users wanted to stream Apple Music through their speaker systems, they’d have to stream it over Bluetooth or connect a device to it.
Unfortunately those are some of the “costs” associated with Apple Music, but the good news is that if you’re an Android user with an Apple Music subscription, you might be in luck because according to 9to5Google, they have discovered within the APK teardown of the app that it looks like Apple could be working towards introducing Chromecast support for the app.
The company has since made some changes where in an announcement on its blog, Google has revealed that for Android users living in Europe, they will now be given a choice and asked which browser they want to use and even which search applications they might prefer, even if it does not necessarily mean using Chrome or Google search.
Android has always allowed users to choose their own preferred apps for launching certain actions, but we suppose that might not have always been clear. These changes will make it so that users are aware that if they do want to change their browser from Chrome to Firefox or Opera or Edge, they can go ahead and do so.
