Spotify is finally adding a feature to block artists, currently in testing

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019

Let me set the scene for you: You're hanging out with your friends, the night is winding down, someone wants to play some music. You've got a Chromecast hooked up to the stereo, but they don't have Spotify. It's alright, it's just one song, you think. "What do you wanna play?" Some Lady Gaga cover by a prolific jazz band. You queue it up on your phone to play. Whatever, right?

2018 is almost over, and like any other year, it had its fair share of interesting events. With its Game of the Year, Google wants to see just how much you remember about 2018 by asking questions about trending searches during the past 340-something days.

A storage indicator is rolling out to the Play Store’s ‘My Apps’ section

Thursday, December 6th, 2018

It seems like the Play Store is always getting minute little tests and rollouts, but something useful is being added for once. A tipster spotted a handy storage bar in the 'My Apps' section of the Play Store app on his devices, though the rollout seems to be pretty limited for now.

Note: The green navigation bar is a mod, not part of the update.

Under the 'Installed' tab in 'My Apps,' there's a storage indicator that shows what percentage of your storage has been used and how many GBs are free.

Wednesday, November 28th, 2018

You know those beautiful bold colors that were supposed to make out Material Design? Yup, we've been kissing them goodbye for a long time now and it looks like they might be stripped away from one more app on your phone: the Play Store.

Twitter experimenting with new reply threading UI and status indicator dots

Monday, September 3rd, 2018

Over the years, Twitter has undergone quite a few changes. Some recent ones that come to mind include threading and the upped 280-character limit. The latest changes the company is testing include a new interface for threads, as well as a presence feature that'll show when people are online.

The more noticeable test of the two is the new UI for tweet threads. Each tweet now gets its own bubble, and replies from the original tweeter are given a color fill.

Google’s speech input UI is getting a Material makeover

Monday, August 6th, 2018

The speech input interface that is seen in apps like YouTube and the Play Store hasn't been updated for some time. If I'm remembering correctly, the last time it was revised was when the new Google logo replaced the old one, but it had remained largely the same for years before that as well. The company is now testing a Material-based UI that is a much better match for Android's current aesthetic.

Google Opinion Rewards has a much improved UI in testing

Monday, August 6th, 2018

Google's Opinion Rewards app is the only official way to get free Google Play credit, which is why so many use it. Each survey, which usually only takes a couple of seconds, gives out anywhere between $0.10 and $1, and that can add up quickly with enough surveys. A new, Material-themed interface is being tested, and it looks a lot better than the current UI.

We had been tipped about a new look for the 'Reward history' page in Opinion Rewards about a week ago, and it seems like that's available for most.

Facebook app transitioning to Chrome Custom Tabs from external link opening

Friday, August 3rd, 2018

Whenever I get a new phone, one of the first things I do after installing all of my apps is head into the Facebook app settings and enable the 'Links open externally' toggle. However, Facebook may finally be adopting Chrome Custom Tabs, three years after Google first announced them.

Several readers have sent in tips showing that the option of selecting between Facebook's browser is gone from settings, and that links are now opening via Chrome Custom Tabs.

YouTube app experiments with gesture navigation through new swipe-based video interface

Thursday, August 2nd, 2018

Navigating between videos in the YouTube app could be getting a whole lot easier in the future. According to one of our eagle-eyed tipsters, a subtly different interface might be coming that supports swiping between videos. With the slide of a finger, you could navigate between videos in your queue—though you'll still never find something to watch.

The test takes the standard YouTube app interface we all should be familiar with and just adds swiping.
