Facebook begins to merge Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp. Google announces the Pixel 5 with millimeter-wave 5G. TikTok gains notice as the authentic social media network. First, Harry McCracken of Fast Company joins us to explain Facebook's latest move — the company is slowly merging its messaging apps. Could Instagram, Messenger, and WhatsApp become a single, merged service? Then, Android Police's David Ruddock stops in to give us his thoughts on Google's fall hardware event. How does the Pixel 5 compare to other flagship phones? Why does Ruddock think millimeter-wave 5G in the Pixel 5 is a mistake? Your questions are answered. Then, Abrar Al-Heeti gives us the deets on her CNET article regarding TikTok and the unique authenticity the platform cultivates. Between the positive energy, laughs, and all-around good nature of the platform, folks are finding there what they haven't found from other social media networks.
