WhatsApp is taking the hassle out of migrating to a new phone *and* new number

Migrating WhatsApp is one of the most stressful things I've ever done. It is legit the main reason I take several weeks — perhaps months — to fully switch to a new phone.

Last month, Google began rolling out a transfer tool to help users migrate seamlessly from Google Play Music to YouTube Music. It's a one-click process that syncs your library, recommendations, playlists, likes and dislikes, and more. However, as is often the case with new tech like this, many users are experiencing a glitch, reporting that the migration of their data is causing their YouTube side panel to disappear on both desktop and mobile.

Adidas to shut down miCoach services, users can migrate to Runtastic and get a free Premium membership

Adidas bought Runtastic in August of 2015 for more than $200 Millions, and since then, we haven't seen a lot of signs of that acquisition. But that changes now with the news that Adidas will be shutting down its own sports platform and apps, miCoach, and focusing instead on Runtastic.

Compared to miCoach, Runtastic is more developed, has more features and more users, and is compatible and integrated with plenty of third-party apps and accessories. If you ask me, it seems like the better service and Adidas is making the right choice, even if this could anger or annoy some miCoach users.

But thankfully, Adidas is making the switch as smooth as possible.
