Update Notes for Google Voice, Play Store, Translate, YouTube, YouTube Kids, Contacts, and more (August 11, 2018)

Saturday, August 11th, 2018

Every week, I examine somewhere in the neighborhood of a hundred app updates while looking for changes. The most interesting things turn into APK Teardowns or Download posts. Many of the remaining updates are unremarkable, amounting to a few bug fixes, routine updates to libraries, or even just pixel-level adjustments to layouts and images. However, there are usually a few updates that land somewhere in between. I don't want to spam readers with dozens of short posts, but I hate to ignore things that people might want to know about, so I'm going to wrap up the leftovers for a little weekend reading and call it Update Notes.

YouTube begins certifying ‘Signature Devices’ with the best YouTube viewing experience

Friday, August 10th, 2018

Are you watching YouTube on an inferior phone? Well, that just won't do. YouTube now has a Signature Devices program that can point you in the direction of a phone that has all the latest video technologies. Those cat videos will look better than ever.

The YouTube Signature Devices program addresses the hardware and software features that YouTube considers vital to provide the best experience. It doesn't go into more esoteric details like the brightness or color accuracy of a panel.

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.

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.

Google outlines aggressive YouTube Music update plans, with plenty of requested features in the works

Thursday, August 2nd, 2018

Google software and services are inevitably works in progress. Whether we're talking Gmail or Assistant, we're constantly seeing features introduced, interfaces tweaked, and products merged together or split off on their own. Earlier this year, Google turned its attention to a big overhaul of its premium YouTube offerings, including a new positioning for YouTube Music along with a new app. Now Google's talking a little about what we can expect from that app in the weeks and months to come.

YouTube is testing Stories that look exactly like Instagram’s

Wednesday, August 1st, 2018

For some reason, it seems like every single social media service wants to add stories to their platform. Snapchat really kicked the concept off, Instagram decided to copy it, and then Zuckerberg and friends decided to put it in Facebook too. Now, YouTube is joining in on the fun as well.

We first noticed Stories of this variety when we posted about the dark theme rolling out to some a few days ago, but neglected to mention them.

YouTube dark theme now available for some on Android

Saturday, July 28th, 2018

These days, an often-seen feature request for apps (and Android in general) is dark mode. We first noticed that YouTube was preparing to bring one to its Android app in November of last year, but while the web and iOS versions have had it for months, there's only been radio silence on the Android side. However, we're now seeing several reports of dark mode being automatically activated on the YouTube Android app.

YouTube web player now adapts to different aspect ratios

Saturday, July 28th, 2018

If it were up to us, every video would be 16:9, with some exceptions made for some more cinematic footage. But because there are older videos and people unaware of vertical video syndrome on YouTube, videos with inferior aspect ratios are an unfortunate reality. The team behind YouTube is making the best of this situation, and it's now made its web player adapt to different aspect ratios.
