Friday, December 15th, 2017

As Cyber Monday was wearing down, Google was already winding up some app updates. A new version of Gboard began rolling out late in the afternoon, and with it comes the long-anticipated handwriting support, meaning we can finally uninstall the separate handwriting keyboard. There are also some tweaks to the emoji picker. As we look to the teardown, there are signs of a new theme system with a few new options for more visual control, a new autospace feature, integration with the Motion Stills app, and more.

Friday, December 15th, 2017

A new version of Allo is rolling out just in time for the holidays. If you're thinking about singing Christmas carols or wishing somebody a happy new year, things are going to get a little more interesting thanks to the latest update. Your audio messages will now be automatically transcribed to text, so people can decide when to listen and have some idea of what they're going to be hearing. There's also a clue that may suggest threaded conversations will be supported.

Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

An update to Google's Phone app began rolling out to users earlier today. Besides enabling the seamless video calling feature with Duo, which also works on v14, this update comes with a few additions of its own. The previously discussed Assisted Dialing feature for international travelers has been enabled and is ready to make life a little easier, and users on Android 8.1 will now see the white navigation bar that's been creeping into a few of Google's apps.

Paralign is an intelligent, data-driven and personalized well-being platform [Sponsored Post]

Monday, December 11th, 2017

It can be difficult to share details about how you feel, especially online. Motivational apps have existed for years, but most simply offer words of encouragement. While that alone can certainly be helpful in many circumstances, sometimes you might need more help. That's where Paralign comes in.

  

Paralign is a one-of-a-kind personalized thought and mood tracker. Once you log in with an online account (or continue as a guest, but your data won't be saved), you can create posts with your thoughts, and include a rating of how you currently feel.

Google Maps v9.68 makes indoor maps easier to spot, prepares intelligent ‘out of range’ warnings, and much more [APK Teardown]

Saturday, December 9th, 2017

For many people around the world, this is the holiday season. We're packing things up and hitting the road to visit family and friends. Most of us will put at least some part of our trip into Google's hands as we launch Maps and wait for it to tell us which turn to take next. A new version hit the beta channel yesterday to prepare for some of these road trips.

Google Contacts v2.4 readies multi-SIM support and prepares a new suggestion to fix nameless contacts [APK Teardown]

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

A new version of Google Contacts came out yesterday, but it unfortunately doesn't seem to solve the recent issue with contact syncing that some Oreo users are reporting. This update appears to mostly fix bugs, but it does come with a couple of minor tweaks and some preparation for new feature additions in the future.

What's New

Left: v2.3. Right: v2.4.

I rarely bother with pointing out phrasing changes when they don't actually change any functionality, but since the Suggestions screen will be immediately relevant to the teardown and this change speaks to the nature of what's to come, it's worth giving a mention to this one.

Google Allo v24 prepares to start chats with Gmail addresses, continues work on camera effects and other UI enhancements [APK Teardown]

Saturday, December 2nd, 2017

A new version of Allo is making the rounds, and again with an evening release on a Friday. So far, no new features have been uncovered in this update, but we're still poking around for something to reveal itself. In the meantime, there's plenty of material to examine under the microscope of a teardown. We can see that contacting people through their Google account may be coming soon. Allo's upcoming camera effects are evolving as two old ones may have been removed, a new one turns up, and they're all getting new icons.

Google Photos v3.10 adds text selection mode to Lens, prepares tool to remove obstructions from photos and videos [APK Teardown]

Friday, December 1st, 2017

A new version of Google Photos is out in the wild and it's sporting a brand new text selection feature for those with access to Google Lens. A teardown of the APK also reveals that Photos isn't too far from getting a powerful tool for removing obstructions and ghosting effects from images, and it may soon have a new 'themed movie' generator that does all of the hard work of picking out content for short personalized videos.

Duo v23 hints at new ‘Drishti’ camera mode, extends video messaging with re-record, and removes some previously spotted camera effects [APK Teardown]

Thursday, November 30th, 2017

The latest version of Duo began rolling out to users this morning, but there haven't been any visible changes popping up in the live app. As is tradition, especially with Duo, a teardown does turn up a few of the changes we can look forward to in the future. This time, we're looking at yet another camera effect, but this one may actually stick around and make it to users. There is also follow-up on some previous camera effects and the voicemail / videomail feature discussed in previous teardowns.

Google’s ‘Triangle’ data-saving app renamed to ‘Datally’, is now available globally

Thursday, November 30th, 2017

Not everyone has the luxury of an unlimited data plan. Google published a new app back in June, called 'Triangle,' designed to help users micromanage their cellular data usage. Now the app has left beta and become available worldwide, under the new name 'Datally.'

 

As far as functionality goes, it hasn't changed much since the initial beta. The app uses a VPN to determine the data usage of every app on your phone, and allow you to block background data usage on a per-app basis (Android 7.0+ can do this through the Settings, but the option is a bit hidden).
