OnePlus updating its 5 and 5T to play HD Netflix, but you have to send your phone back to get it

Saturday, February 24th, 2018

OnePlus' phones are a great value, but they've each individually had a few drawbacks. One negative they all had in common, though, was a DRM deficiency. None of the company's handsets supported the correct DRM level required for HD playback in Netflix. Distress on the subject came to a head late last year, and OnePlus surprisingly announced that it would add the feature in the future. In a comment on OnePlus' forums today the company confirmed that it was now able to update handsets to support it, but the process will require that you send the phone back to OnePlus for the update. 

The deficiency stems from OnePlus' failure to perform the steps required to reach the L1 security level in Google's Widevine DRM, which is required by Netflix for HD playback.

Google Drive File Stream update adds bandwidth limit settings, sync pause, and more

Saturday, February 24th, 2018

The Google Drive desktop client isn't very great (at least on Windows), and if you want to access a file, it has to be stored on your computer at all times. Google announced a new client called 'Drive File Stream' last year, which adds all your files to your computer, but only downloads the data when you want to open something (similar to OneDrive on Windows 8). Unfortunately, Drive File Stream is only available to G Suite users, so us normal people can't try it out.

The Moto Z2 Force is Motorola's current flagship device, and the Verizon model started receiving Android 8.0 Oreo in late December. Just a few days later, Oreo reached the T-Mobile variant. For some reason, it has taken AT&T two more months to deliver the update, but it's finally here.
