A new feature in Microsoft Teams

Our tests of the week
Xiaomi Robot Vacuum X10+: good value for money
If you are looking for a robot vacuum cleaner under 1000 euros with a high-end technical sheet, the Xiaomi Robot Vacuum X10+ could make you happy. We love its precise navigation, its complete application, its good autonomy and its relatively fast recharging. Washing is just fine but suction is good. The floor space of the station is less and could therefore satisfy people who have little space available.

Honor Magic Vs: some flaws that put us off
If Honor offers here an elegant quality smartphone, its release in France comes a little late compared to the competition, especially compared to its foldable competitor at Samsung. We love its well-calibrated external screen, its generous battery, its very fast charging and its audio experience. We regret that the photo configuration is so light for a smartphone sold at this price and we would have liked the interface to be better optimized.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum: 2/5 for this disappointing game
Admittedly the story is original and the dubbing in original version is of high quality, but it is difficult to find other positive points in this game which invites you to follow the misadventures of Sméagol. The staging is poor, the controls are very approximate, the infiltration part is missed and the AI of the enemies does not hold up. Added to all this are many bugs. The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is sold at 59.99 euros.
