Ringing alarms and timers on a Google Nest speaker can now be stopped from another room

Ringing alarms and timers on a Google Nest speaker can now be stopped from another room

Stop me if you think you've heard this one before. You set up a cooking timer on your Nest speaker or display in the kitchen, then go chill in the living room or the bedroom. When the timer rings, it just doesn't stop until you move your ass over to the kitchen and talk to that particular speaker, because yelling "stop" to the other Assistant units littered around your house doesn't do anything. We've complained about this for years, but the problem should finally be far behind us as Google is rolling out timer and alarm control across the entire house.

Self-destructing secret messages are super hip nowadays. Snapchat made it trendy and now every messaging app and social network is trying to follow suit: Allo has private conversations, Instagram creates ephemeral stories, and so on.

Chrono List Is A Simple, Material, And Completely Free Interval Timer

Chrono List Is A Simple, Material, And Completely Free Interval Timer

Sometimes developers strike (figurative) gold. They send an app submission just when you're thinking that you need to find an app that does the exact same thing, and it's Presidents Day so your plate is otherwise empty and you can try it out. Such is the case with Chrono List. But let's back up.

For a few days now, I have been thinking how silly it is that I have to keep staring at my treadmill's timer to figure out when to switch speeds during my runs. See, some days I go for a gradual speed increase over 5' intervals, and other days I do a HIIT of 1' intense runs and 2' walks. I
