Twitter is testing live counters for retweets, likes, and replies on Twitter Beta

April 26th, 2017

Twitter changes the user interface almost constantly on its beta app – I suppose that’s to be expected. The latest new feature in testing is a live counter for likes, retweets, and replies on each tweet. The counter appears to update roughly once a second.

The feature showed up for Artem on Twitter Beta 6.45.0-beta.599, but I am on the same version and don’t have it, so perhaps it’s a server-side test. You can grab that version from APKMirror if you want to check for yourself.

Using a custom camera app and some post-capture editing , Kainz shows what the camera sensors in the Pixel and Nexus 6P can do in low light situations.

Kainz says his little project was inspired by a chat with Google’s Gcam team, which focuses on computational photography.

April 25th, 2017

One of the killer features of Chromebooks is the ability to run Android applications from the Play Store. But it has been difficult to tell exactly when each model would get the feature, until now. Google has updated its list of Chrome OS devices to clarify the status of the Play Store for each product.

As you might know, Chrome OS has different ‘channels,’ much like the Chrome browser itself. Chromebooks normally use the Stable (release) channel, but if you’re feeling adventurous, a beta channel is available as well.
