    Ok sweet, thanks! I wonder if I can just program my phone to only respond to "Ok Google" and only say "Hey Google" to the speaker

    Ok I got really carried away and bought 3 Google Nest Minis since they have a $20 discount to put in each room of my apartment and 5 GE smart bulbs and a smart outlet lol.

    Most money I've spent on unnecessary things in a long time, but hey, I figured since I'm a pretty cheap person, it's good to treat myself for once heh. I love bright light in the bathroom but my girlfriend always wants dim light in the tub so I figured dimmable bulbs would be smart

    Hey all, with virtual teaching this year, I'm thinking of getting a mic and a camera so that hopefully I get better audio/video quality for my kids rather than just using the internal mic and camera on my laptop that produces audios that sound a little...well, I'm sure you all know, like the typical audio on a zoom sounds like...and video that is okay, but I'd love like HD quality video if possible.

    Are there affordable options that would produce significantly or noticeably better audio/video? google searches keep turning up the ole snowball mic, not sure how good that is. I really don't know much about tech specs to know what's good and all that. Haven't looked at cameras too much yet

    Anyone have a 65" TCL or bigger, or any thoughts on the brand?

    Currently have a 75" Vizio M Series, but after 3 years it's already failing. Looking at replacing it.

    All my other TV's are Vizio, but this big one has left a bad taste in my mouth with them..

    I've always used Plantronics headsets at work and they work great and are crystal clear. I have a bluetooth ear piece and a wired set, no complaints, and everyone can hear me fine (unless I forget to move the mic in front of my mouth after eating while on mute lol)

    I think the Bluetooth set is a Voyager 5200 UC, the wired is an EncorePro 540. I have a 1080P HP webcam in my office when docked, but working from home I just use the one built into my work laptop that I think is also 1080P?

    Huge TCL endorser here. I have a 65" and a 55". The 65" is the higher model number and I think it's fantastic.

    I've been hearing really good things about them and they're not super expensive.
    My Vizio was like 2200 when I got it cause the HDR 4k was newer. Never again.
    What series, 6 or 8?

    It must be a 6 because I know I didn't spend close to 2k on it.

    Anyone know how to view the source of a text that comes from an email address? Is there a way?
     
  16. Outlook and Gmail make this pretty easy.

    I’m not very tech savvy. How would I achieve this on gmail? You can pm me if you want.
     
  18. You would click the word "Gmail" in my previous post and follow the step by step instructions (which include pictures).

    Looks like it has to been sent to your email address in order to check? These random emails texted me. So I’m not sure how to check from my phone?
