Episode 146: Tick Tock Trump, Send Audio Using Siri & Samsung Unpacked
In what seems to be a re-occurring theme for Double Tap Canada, this week’s episode starts with a Steven Scott rant. But just what or who is he angry at now? It is non-other than President Trump. Specifically, Trumps proposed ban of the social media platform Tik Tok.

Next up is a High Speed How To on a under reported new feature coming in iOS14, and although it may seem a small change, it is very welcome. In iOS14 you are able to send audio messages just by asking Siri. In much the same way as sending a text message, you will be able to simply ask Siri to send an audio message to a contact, speak your message and the recording will be sent via iMessage. All without ever having to touch your phone.
Finally, we will dive into what was unveiled at the Samsung Unpacked 2020 event. With the Note 20 smartphones, Tab 7 tablets, Galaxy Buds Live & a new smart watch, is there anything that got us reaching for our wallets? And did the new Z Fold 2 smartphone impress Steven?
