Google Play Games v5.11 brings redesigned game icons and prepares a new hidden mini-game [APK Teardown]

Thursday, August 16th, 2018

The Play Games app is riding high with a series of recent changes and still a few more things to come. The latest update doesn't bring any revolutionary changes, but it does change the icons adorning the built-in games so they can all share a uniform style. Buried within the APK are also signs that a new easter egg is in the works that will probably launch another new mini-game.

Nvidia is testing a Shield TV app with virtual remote, mousepad, and keyboard [APK Download]

Wednesday, August 15th, 2018

Probably the only Android TV box worth consistent attention is the Nvidia Shield TV, which does just about everything the right way. It comes with a handy physical remote, but still, some users have called for a mobile app. Nvidia is finally giving them what they want.

The Shield TV app is currently labeled 'unreleased' and is being tested by Nvidia ahead of a formal unveiling. It includes several virtual tools, such as remote buttons, a mousepad, and a keyboard.

Google Duo v38 removes all signs of screen sharing, reveals referral rewards for India, and more [APK Teardown]

Tuesday, August 14th, 2018

A new version of Duo is making the rounds with some interesting changes both on the surface and behind the scenes. There are some visual tweaks that bring a slightly updated look to Duo, and an option was removed from settings. Sadly, it looks like screen sharing may be dead for the foreseeable future. And if you're interested in scoring some rewards in trade for signing friends up to Duo, you'll have something to look forward to.

Inbox v1.76 may be bringing back the ‘Someday’ snooze option [APK Teardown]

Tuesday, August 14th, 2018

Were you personally wounded when Google declared that Inbox would no longer include 'Someday' among its list of Snooze options? It's likely you weren't alone. The latest update to Inbox doesn't appear to bring back the recently removed feature, but a couple lines from a teardown suggest it might be coming back.

Twitter Lite v2.0 adds image saving, push notifications, and more [APK Download]

Monday, August 13th, 2018

Twitter's alternate app for developing nations with limited cellular connections (or those looking for a lighter or data-saving experience) just got bumped to v2.0. In this update, Twitter Lite is getting a crucial feature with push notifications as well as some other important stuff.

Here's the changelog:

We are now available in 46 countries! Designed for 2G/3G networks, enjoy Twitter without the data worries. The latest update includes support for:

  • Push notifications
  • Data saver
  • Night mode
  • Bookmarks
  • Save images

Obviously, the addition of push notifications is the most important bit of this update — it's also funny that the Twitter Progressive Web App had this before the Lite version, but I digress.

Android Auto v3.5 fixes crashing on phones with Android 9 Pie [APK Download]

Monday, August 13th, 2018

Android Auto hasn't been playing nice with Android 9 Pie. There have been reports left and right of numerous bugs: missing text notifications, a disruptive buzzing sound in calls, and frequent crashes. Fortunately, the Android Auto team is aware of these issues, and reports that it's fixed at least one — Android Auto version 3.5 should solve the crashing problem.

Previously, running Google Maps or Waze on a phone updated to Android 9 Pie with an Android Auto head unit resulted in the in-car display going black or Android Auto crashing and restarting entirely.

Update Notes for Google Voice, Play Store, Translate, YouTube, YouTube Kids, Contacts, and more (August 11, 2018)

Saturday, August 11th, 2018

Every week, I examine somewhere in the neighborhood of a hundred app updates while looking for changes. The most interesting things turn into APK Teardowns or Download posts. Many of the remaining updates are unremarkable, amounting to a few bug fixes, routine updates to libraries, or even just pixel-level adjustments to layouts and images. However, there are usually a few updates that land somewhere in between. I don't want to spam readers with dozens of short posts, but I hate to ignore things that people might want to know about, so I'm going to wrap up the leftovers for a little weekend reading and call it Update Notes.

Google is working on a new Favorites tab for the Phone app [APK Teardown]

Friday, August 10th, 2018

Following the update to the Android Messages app, a matching update to its Phone app was also shipped for Pixels and other Google-supported handsets. The story is the same, though the visual changes look less severe since the old versions were already less colorful and contact photos were a bit more dominant. There aren't any live functional changes for the general public, but there is one notable change to the Favorites tab in the works.
