Portrait Light was announced along with the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5. It's one more neat Pixel camera feature that lets you manually control light in portrait pics and adjust face brightness as you see fit, either for a more dramatic and contrasting effect or to balance things out in poorly-lit photos.

Samsung Reminder can now sync with Microsoft To Do, Outlook, and Teams

Samsung's Reminder app is well thought out and nicely designed, but suffers from a major flaw — it's only available on Samsung devices. That's okay if you're invested in the Samsung ecosystem, but many of us use a Samsung phone along with other devices from different manufacturers, and having your reminders and tasks solely on one phone isn't great.
