Allo, is anybody out there? A brief history of Google’s ill-fated messenger

Tuesday, April 24th, 2018

Two days ago it was revealed that development for Allo was temporarily suspended while Google redoubles its efforts at spreading the gospel of RCS under the more marketable name "Chat." Even so, the company has reassured consumers that it is still committed to supporting Allo. But the news makes it hard not to visualize Allo being sent to the same "still supported" farm where other Google services like Hangouts reside.

While Allo's fate hangs in limbo, let's take a look back at the service since its announcement, and speculate a bit on how it got there. 

I actually wrote a more detailed retrospective of the service last summer for the one year anniversary, but in light of recent developments and the changes since then, we thought that an updated and simplified survey of the app's history was in order.

Google departure time notifications have stopped working for many users

Monday, April 23rd, 2018

Have you noticed something missing from your notification shade lately? According to an increasingly lengthy support thread on Google's product forums, those handy departure time notifications have mysteriously vanished. Some users have found a Chrome-based workaround, but the root cause remains unknown.

Usually, the Google app on your phone can fire off a notification when it's time to leave for an appointment. The timing of the notification and recommended time come from your calendar, so you need to have a location in the event.

Google Collections start rolling out, replacing Saved pages

Monday, April 23rd, 2018

If there's ever one constant in life as an Android fan, it's that nothing is constant with Google. Last September, the company started rolling out My Saves (or Saved pages), a mish-mash of your saved images on Google Search, saved bookmarks while browsing search results in the Google app, and Maps lists. But just a few days ago, Cody discovered that changes were afoot with Saved pages, and now Google is starting to implement those and switch to "Collections."

Depending on whether or not you're part of the server-side test, if you go to your Saved pages either through the Google app or by navigating to google.com/save, you may see the more modern interface where the saved lists are now called "Collections" and laid out in a more compact way.

Verizon launches its new Fios TV app, a better-looking version of its old FiOS Mobile app

Sunday, April 22nd, 2018

I'm a fairly satisfied Verizon Fios customer with a basic internet and TV package. Sure, it helps that the man who installed our setup somehow gave us a handful of channels we weren't supposed to get (shh), but I've come to prefer it over any of the previous providers I've endured. But one thing I haven't taken advantage of yet is the Verizon FiOS Mobile app, probably because I'm still a bit scarred by visions of the atrocious bloatware defecating all over my phones when I was a Verizon Wireless customer.

Google Pay v1.57 prepares support for airline boarding passes and event tickets, Suica and WAON payment cards, and more [APK Teardown]

Sunday, April 22nd, 2018

It wasn't that long ago that Google Pay (and its previous names) was solely focused on making purchases in a store or paying on the spot to get onto subways...and sometimes sending money to friends. Google recently added support for one-time transit tickets on the Las Vegas Monorail and prepaid commuter cards with the TriMet in Portland, Oregon, but things are about to get a lot more interesting thanks to the latest update.
