New YouTube Music Update May Bring Stage-Centric Design

It seems like a new update is rolling out for some YouTube Music listeners that has a new focus on scenarios like exercising, concentrating, relaxing, and scrolling. The update has a selection of tabs at the top of the screen that will rearrange the home page to reflect a scenario. That means if you tap on the new 'Workout' option, the screen will be arranged to show songs and playlists for exercising.

Google’s Pixel 5 Releases in Canada and the US After All Others

Google introduced the Pixel 5 at its Made by Google event and pre-orders are now available. The new phone will be available on October 29 in Canada, but oddly enough, we and the US will get the latest phone. At the event, Google announced that certain markets would get the phone on October 15; however, for some reason, that does not include North America. Instead, countries like Australia, the UK, Japan, France, Taiwan, and Germany will get the device on the 15th. What's even weirder is that the Pixel 4a 5G launches on October 15 in Japan and elsewhere in November. It is not clear why there is a delay this time. The Pixel 4a was delayed for Canadians, but releasing the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 later in the US is a bit strange. The company is likely deal...
