A small facelift for Meteor and its optimization tool on Android.
After launching the coverage map on the speedtest app on Android, then increasing its accuracy before integrating 5G, Meteor gets a visual makeover. In this version, the design of all screens has been updated, and the cover map has been “cleaned”. The app performance tool has also been improved with “a bunch of new apps added for you to test performance”.
Available for free on Google Play Store and Apple App Store, Meteor is an app to test the quality of its internet connection in 3G, 4G, 5G or Wi-Fi. – Here it encodes downstream speed (download/receive) and incremental speed (send/send) and ping. Also indicates whether the connection is sufficient for applications, those indicated by default and those added by the user (up to 6 of the several dozen available, including Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, WhatsApp, Twitter, Gmail, Netflix, YouTube, Spotify and Call of Duty Mobile, PUBG Mobile, Clash Royale, and Pokémon Go). The tool also offers support for beginners by integrating a virtual companion (The Cosmic Monster) that provides explanations and the use of color codes to facilitate understanding of the results.
The app also makes it possible to compare the coverage of different operators, thanks to its color shades ranging from red for poor performance to green for good coverage. You can navigate the map or search for a city and even see the level of coverage and signal strength at street level.
Note that it is possible to participate to expand this card, by collecting and sharing your coverage data and the statistics of your operators. You are then instructed to enable location data collection in your smartphone settings. You will then become a SuperUser.
