On the first Tuesday of each month @ 8:00 p.m. ET., we host a live broadcast & chat. New episodes post weekly.

New! A way to support the show.


218: Apple TV & Smith.ai - Virtual Receptionists

TOPICS:

  • Jerry discusses his experience running IOS 11 Beta
     
  • Joe chats about his frustration with Apple TV screen saver and its inability to use iCloud Photo Library albums, e.g. Favorites etc. They show in the interface to select My Photos as the source, but there is no Set as Screensaver button as there is within Shared Albums. The only way to do this is to use a Shared Album? This seems to be a longstanding bug/limitation in tvOS.
     
  • A long discussion about virtual receptionist services and Jerry's first hand experience using Smith.ai for the last sixty days.

    "Smith is a superior call answering service for small businesses and individuals. Our virtual receptionists help you build better relationships with new and existing customers."
