Apple Arcade vs Google Play Pass, Can we trust Google now, Why are telcos lining up free months of credit? Vertical Hold Episode 247

It’s the battle of the subscription gaming services, while Google battles to regain trust in voice assistants and telcos battle for your attention in the latest episode of Vertical Hold!

Vertical Hold is brought to you by Casa Systems

Adam’s on leave this week, so I’m joined by a Leigh Stark from Pickr, as well as Angus Kidman from Finder to talk through the differences (and value) in Apple and Google’s competing mobile game and app subscription services, whether Google can really be trusted with voice recordings, and why telcos are lining up to offer free months of access to their services.

I am also unfortunately joined by a head cold I can’t seem to shake.
