Microsoft’s Photos Companion is a neat utility for transferring images from Android to your PC (Hands-on)

Thursday, February 15th, 2018

Microsoft Garage releases plenty of new projects with some being wacky and some more interesting with potential to grow into a real Microsoft app. The latter is the case of the new Photos Companion, an app that does what its name suggests: it's an Android (and iOS) app that lets you quickly transfer photos from your phone to the Photos app on a Windows 10 PC via WiFi. It works very well from my experience and might become my go-to way for sending screenshots to my computer.

Tuesday, February 13th, 2018

Version 3.14 of Google Photos just started rolling out a little earlier today. This one doesn't appear to have any new features or major changes, but it might possibly be leaving behind some older versions of Android. This update could also be preparing to launch the Favorites feature spotted in a previous teardown. Looking further into the APK's resources, there are also signs of more options related to Shared Libraries. And finally, Austin's Mysteryer feature takes yet another turn.

Google Photos gets new sharing previews for users who don’t have the app installed

Wednesday, February 7th, 2018

Towards the end of 2016, Google introduced an API called App Preview Messaging. It debuted with Allo, where it lets you message anyone regardless of whether they have the app installed. They receive a preview message, handled by Google Play Services, which they can respond to as though they do have the app.

Duo recently added support for this, too, so you could receive and answer a video call from a contact even if you've never heard of the app.

VSCO’s new Discover feature is powered by really cool AI with a really pretentious name

Tuesday, February 6th, 2018

VSCO might not be as popular (or ego-driven) as Instagram, but it's made a comfortable name for itself among photography circles. Rather than dig through piles of low-effort content rated by likes or votes, VSCO strips things down to the just the basics: photos, messages, and you. Now the app is making it a bit easier to find the types of photos you might like, too, with a novel Discover feature that is advertised as being able to match emotional and aesthetic content, all powered by VSCO's pretentiously named "Ava" AI. 

To be frank, if you've seen one system for personalized recommendations, you've pretty much seen them all, but that's not entirely true in this case.

Google Photos v3.13 adds search filter for Motion Photos, notifications for Photo Books, and a shortcut to set up reciprocal sharing [APK Download]

Tuesday, January 30th, 2018

We're getting a new version of Google Photos today, and breaking from the recent theme, this one actually has a few changes, though most of them don't stand out all that much. It's now easy to search for Motion Photos with a convenient search category. There are new notifications related to Photos Books, plus the settings to turn them off. And if anybody is auto-sharing photos with you, there's now a shortcut for setting up the same arrangement with them.

Nokia 6 (2018) loses capacitive keys and moves fingerprint sensor to back

Friday, January 5th, 2018

It's been about a year since we first heard about the new Nokia phones, including the Nokia 6. Although it took a bit longer for the phone to hit stateside, it rounded out HMD Global's new Android portfolio reasonably well. What few disadvantages we might have seen appear to be fixed in the 2018 version, which just leaked in a detailed product listing by Chinese retailer Suning.

Specs

SoC 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 630
RAM 4GB
Storage 32/64GB, microSD
Software Android Nougat 7.1.1, Oreo 8.0 promised
Primary Camera 16MP f/2.0 w/"OZO Audio" recording
Front-facing Camera 8MP f/2.0
Battery 3,000mAh (Micro-USB)
Dimensions 148.8mm (5.85") x 75.8mm (2.98") x 8.15mm (0.32")
Price 32GB CNY1,499, 64GB CNY1,699

On paper, the 2018 version of the Nokia 6 is nearly identical to its forebear, with only a few tweaks such as the chipset and some trickle-down features like the "bothie" from the Nokia 7 and 8.

Instagram now lets you directly nag your friends to watch your live video

Friday, December 22nd, 2017

What's the point of broadcasting live on Instagram if you can't prod your followers to watch you? Otherwise you're just livestreaming to the wind. To solve this crisis, Instagram today announced a new feature allowing users to send their live videos right to the Direct inbox of a follower or a group of them. It's kind of like performing a song on their front lawn and throwing rocks at their window to get them to notice.

Google PhotoScan version 1.5 adds automatic saving to Google Photos [APK Download]

Wednesday, December 13th, 2017

It's been a while since we've seen an update to Google's handy photo digitizing app, PhotoScan. Back in April, version 1.4 brought with it in-app sharing and the ability to turn off the glare removal feature – although I'm not sure why you'd want to do that. Version 1.5 is now available on the Play Store, and it now saves your creations to Google Photos automatically.

Previously, you would have to select which photos from PhotoScan you wanted to keep, and then choose to save them to Google Photos.
