It’s been a difficult year, and with the emergence of the omicron COVID-19 variant, it looks like 2022 may have a rough start. But whether you are spending the holidays in the shelter at home or hanging out with friends or family, you can make things more joyful and fun by using your brand new gear – or current technology – to watch great-looking pictures. Stream movies or TV, play games, and update your computer or mobile device with exciting new apps.
We asked the staff to The edge to tell us about their favorite streaming videos, games and apps. These haven’t been scientifically tested or publicly polled – they’re what we’ve used and enjoyed and think you’ll like (or like), too. We’ve compiled our favorite streaming shows from HBO Max, Hulu, and Netflix; our most popular games for iOS, Android and Windows devices; and our top picks for OLED Switch, PS5, Xbox, and for your VR headset. We even have a list of some great TikTok makers. And when it’s time to get down to business, we’ve recommended our favorite apps for Android, iOS, Windows, and macOS.
We will be putting them in place during the holiday season. So take a look at our top picks of the year and enjoy!
