Dell Mobile Connect now transfers photos between your iPhone and PC

Dell teased in January that its Mobile Connect software would become much more iPhone-friendly this spring, and it’s honoring that promise.

The file exchanges are really just limited to photos and videos, but that may be enough if you’re just looking to save your iPhone snaps on your XPS laptop. Screen mirroring, meanwhile, is what you’d…

Instagram prototypes Snapchat-style disappearing text messages

Instagram is finally preparing to copy Snapchat’s most popular feature, and one of the few it hasn’t already cloned. Instagram has prototyped an unreleased ephemeral text messaging feature that clears the chat thread whenever you leave it, a Facebook spokesperson confirms to TechCrunch. That could make users more comfortable with having rapid-fire, silly, vulnerable, or risque chats, thereby driving up the reply notifications that keep people opening Instagram all day long. Instagram already has disappearing photo and video messaging which it launched in February 2018 to let users choose if…

Google Pay: Here’s how to set it up on your Android phone

Google Pay is a digital wallet tied to your Google account. You can use it to send or request money with friends (kind of like Venmo), use it in apps to pay for things and use it at a store or restaurant with an Android phone or watch running Wear OS. But perhaps the real reason to use Google Pay is that it’s faster and more secure than using a physical debit or credit card. Replacing Android Pay and Google Wallet in 2018, Google Pay works without sending stores and…
