Google app v9.0 beta is working on account detection with third parties, adds bits for CES announcements, and says hello from the lab [APK Teardown]

Friday, January 18th, 2019

If you've been living on the beta distributions of the Google app, you probably spent the weekend (and a couple days into the week) with a broken At A Glance widget that couldn't display the weather. The issue has been resolved with yesterday's update, and it seems like things are running smoothly again. Bugs aside, not much changed in the jump to 9.0 for users, but a teardown does show some of the things to come.

LG announces Pie update schedule for South Korea, V35 and V40 are up next

Thursday, January 17th, 2019

Last year, LG promised future software updates for its phones would come faster, thanks to its 'Software Upgrade Center'. Unfortunately, that hasn't quite worked out. Almost all of LG's phones are still waiting on an update to Android 9 Pie, which was released in August of last year. The company just announced its timeline for rolling out Pie in its home country of South Korea, and some models won't get it until the end of 2019.

[Update: Release hits Korea] LG to start bringing Android 9 Pie to G7 ThinQ with South Korea in Q1 2019

Thursday, January 17th, 2019

LG's history when it comes to updating phones is not great — so much so, in fact, that the company went out of its way to announce a whole new Software Upgrade Center earlier this year to combat the problem.

These LG G8 renders may look boring, but an absent earpiece hints at big audio changes

Thursday, January 17th, 2019

LG's recent entrants into the flagship mobile space haven't been the most exciting phones — though it was funny seeing LG launch the V30 three times. Now a series of renders and a 360-degree video from @OnLeaks and 91mobiles have given our first potential glimpse at LG's upcoming G8. And if you've seen the G7, then this new phone will look pretty familiar, though it has a pretty big twist: There's no earpiece.

Whoops: Twitter accidentally exposed protected tweets for some Android users over the last four years

Thursday, January 17th, 2019

Just earlier today, Twitter admitted to a bit of an accident. Since November 2014, if you had your account's tweets set as protected, and you used the first-party Twitter Android app, changing specific details like your associated email address may have inadvertently disabled the setting.

Some users that were affected by this problem have been notified, and the associated setting has been returned to its expected, disabled state. However, Twitter can't be sure that it has informed everyone who may have been affected, hence the broader announcement (and our coverage).

Thursday, January 17th, 2019

Ring currently finds itself embroiled in controversy, with reports indicating that employees had unrestricted access to all camera footage until as recently as May 2018. While Ring denies this, saying staff only accessed publicly-shared videos in Ring's Neighbors app, the news has a lot of people on edge. That being said, Ring's products were best-sellers in the 2018 holiday season, and if you can look past the unpleasantness, Ring video doorbells are a quick way to get started with a smart home security system.
