On your Android phone, Backup by Google One allows you to seamlessly back up the photos, videos, contacts, and messages most important to you, with up to 15GB of secure cloud storage included in your Google Account. You may also subscribe to Google One for even more storage and helpful features from Google products.

You can join any FaceTime call using Google Chrome. When someone calls you from FaceTime, you’ll receive a link. Tap the link and it’ll open up in Chrome. Enter your name, tap “Continue,” allow FaceTime to use your microphone and camera and tap “Join.” When the host lets you in, you’re all set.
You can find a device with exceptional specs for whatever matters most to you.
