Google announces which Android Wear watches will get Oreo update, and which already have it

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

As the name implies, Android Wear is simply a variation of Android specifically tailored to smartwatches. This year's Wear 2.0 update ran on top of Android 7.0 Nougat, and while some components can be updated through the Play Store, the underlying system can only be updated through normal OTAs.

Google released the Wear version of Android 8.0 Oreo a few days ago, and the update started to roll out to the LG Watch Sport and other models.

Essential Phone camera updates adds 360-degree live-streaming on Facebook and YouTube and other improvements

Saturday, December 9th, 2017

When the Essential Phone landed back in September, one of the biggest criticisms most reviews had for the diminutive device was its decidedly mediocre camera. Subsequent price drops and recent sales may have increased consumer interest, though, and Essential remains committed to improving camera performance—at least, as much as they can.

Two days ago, the Essential camera app and 360-degree hardware were updated again, adding support for YouTube Live 360, Facebook Live 360, and improving 360-degree image quality and software stability.

The OnePlus 5T was only launched a few weeks ago, and already it's breaking all the company's sales records. It might be breaking update records, too, as today marks the 2nd update to the device in less than a month. OxygenOS 4.7.4 is rolling out to the company's latest flagship as we speak, bringing with it camera improvements, bugfixes, and piles of optimizations. 

 

The update to 4.7.4 doesn't include any increase in monthly security patch level, it's still just October and it's still just based on Android Nougat 7.1.1.

Anki Cozmo app update expands programming functionality

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Back in September, Anki released a special Collectors Edition of its Cozmo toy robot, alongside a major app update for both the original and new models. One of its Cozmo's many features is the ability to program basic tasks through the mobile app. While a full Python-based SDK is available for those wanting to use real programming languages, the drag-and-drop Code Lab had most of the essentials.

Anki has released an update for the Cozmo app, with major changes to the programming aspect.

Pocket for Android introduces highlighting feature in latest update [APK Download]

Wednesday, December 6th, 2017

Okay so this isn't the most mind-blowing news story you'll read today, but it's a useful new Pocket feature that's long been requested by users. To someone who hasn't used the app for a while, I must say I'm surprised to learn that highlighting wasn't already a feature. Not that it matters, now, as the latest update includes the ability to make passages of text a little bit yellow.

Version 6.7.0.0 was released yesterday and disabling Auto Play while listening is the only other notable improvement with this release.
