Android 15 Talkback Updates

In this episode of Double Tap, Steven Scott and Shaun Preece dive into a mix of technology news and listener feedback.
They discuss the potential TikTok ban in the US, with President Biden signing a law that requires TikTok’s Chinese owner, ByteDance, to divest the app to a US owner or face a ban. The hosts express skepticism about the security concerns driving the ban, questioning the evidence of TikTok sharing user data with the Chinese government and discussing the broader implications of such a move on social media and mental health.
The episode also touches on the launch of WeWalk’s new smart cane, sparking a debate about the involvement of the visually impaired community in the development of assistive technologies. Steven emphasizes the importance of engaging with the community to avoid pitfalls and create genuinely useful products.
Listener feedback includes a voicemail from Stan, who shares his experience with the RecUp app and recounts a challenging train journey, highlighting the importance of accessibility and safety in transportation.
