Google Wifi adds app shortcuts, prepares batch testing and something called port opening in BV10144 update [APK Teardown]

Wednesday, February 7th, 2018

If you're home or business is keeping wireless devices connected through a Google Wifi, you'll be getting an update to the companion app today. The new version brings a pair of app shortcuts for those of us using it on Android 7.1 or above, but that's about it for visible changes. A teardown adds to the subject with hints of a new batch testing feature and settings for something called "port opening."

Google Translate v5.16 adds proper names for several regional dialects, prepares to add app shortcuts [APK Teardown]

Thursday, February 1st, 2018

Google Translate is getting an update today, but it looks pretty light on features. The main changes appear to center around properly labeling languages. Nine dialects are getting proper names, and it seems the term 'dialect' is going out of style, so Translate is now saying 'region' everywhere. A look through the APK also shows that we can look forward to app shortcuts in the future.

What's New

Unofficial Changelog: (the stuff we found)

  • Dialects are now referred to as regions
  • Updated dialect/region names

Google+ v9.23 adds app shortcuts for quickly starting new posts [APK Download]

Monday, October 16th, 2017

Most updates to the Google+ app tend to fit the "bug fixes and performance improvements" theme, but last month's release of v9.20 did bring custom notification channels for Android 8.0 Oreo – but maybe not the ones we needed. Today's bump to v9.23 makes a similarly subtle addition with support for a slightly older OS feature: App Shortcuts. If you're running on 7.1 Nougat or above, or using a custom launcher with support for static app shortcuts, you'll now have the option to quickly start a few different types of Google+ posts directly from your launcher.
