If you are planning a summer getaway to either Mexico or Canada, then you might be glad to know that AT&T will soon eliminate roaming charges when you’re in either country.

To be clear, if you have an existing Mobile Share Value plan with 15GB or more of data, AT&T will throw in a Mexico roaming feature. This feature grants customers unlimited calling, texting, and data usage in and between Mexico and the U.S. In addition, if you have or plan to buy an Unlimited Plan, you will be granted unlimited calling, texting, and data while in Mexico and Canada, or between either country and the U.S.

Business customers are not left out of the fold, either, as AT&T will include the new roaming features in Mobile Share Value plans with 15GB or greater of data. Furthermore, business customers will automatically receive the Mexico roaming feature if they activate new Mobile Select plans priced $20 per month or higher.

If you want to take advantage of AT&T’s new Mexico and Canada roaming features, there are a few things to keep in mind. For one, if you are an Unlimited Plan customer and want the aforementioned features, you will need to either call AT&T or go to your myAT&T online account. From there, make sure to add the AT&T Roam North America feature to each smartphone and the Roam North America Data feature to each tablet. Mobile Share Value customers will not need to take these steps, as the roaming features will be automatically added.

Secondly, AT&T’s Mexico and Canada roaming features will not cost a penny, as both features will be offered at no additional charge to the customer. Finally, the roaming features will be available starting May 20 for regular and business customers.

What is Amazon Music: everything you need to know
Amazon Music

It's a jungle of music streaming platforms out there, so it stands to reason that Amazon would have one among its massive kingdom of services. And while Amazon Music might not be top of mind among the Spotifys and Apple Musics of the world, you might be surprised by its 100-million-song library, high-resolution and spatial audio offerings, podcast library, Alexa voice control, and a pretty amiable user interface that makes finding music pretty easy.

Amazon Music's subscriptions range from free to its premium Music Unlimited tier, which can be added for $9 per month on top of a subscription to Amazon Prime. But they all come with some quirks and features. We're going to break them all down for you to help you choose which, if any, Amazon Music plan is right for you.

Google Pixel 8: all the latest rumors and what we want to see
Google Pixel 8 leaked render.

The Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are on their way. Google's fallen in a pretty reliable release pattern for Pixel phones, meaning we can safely expect a new lineup of flagship Pixels each year. In 2023, that means the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro.

The Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are two excellent devices -- possibly two of the best smartphones Google has ever made. But while they have some serious strengths, a number of problems and missed opportunities drag both phones down. This wouldn't be a problem if the competition was standing still, but it's not. The Apple iPhone 14 Pro refreshed the iPhone design for the first time in years, and the recently released Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is quite possibly one of the best smartphones ever created. So what's a humble Pixel to do?

I love the Galaxy S23 — here are 5 things the iPhone still does better
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and Apple iPhone 14 Pro

Samsung’s Galaxy S23 has arrived to the masses, and it’s one of the best Android phones you can get right now, especially the S23 Ultra. However, for those who don’t need all of the fancy bells and whistles, like the S Pen and 200MP main camera, the regular S23 is also plenty powerful for the average person, especially if you prefer smaller devices.

I’ve been using the Galaxy S23 for the past few weeks, and so far, my experience has been delightful. I know that it’s still early on in the year, but for me, the S23’s small size is perfect and comfortable. Android also does a lot of things better than iOS, like individual volume controls and notifications, for example. But I am still primarily using my iPhone 14 Pro — despite Apple having some big flaws, such as overprocessing images after you capture them.
