We might soon see some changes on the Play Store as Google is believed to be working on improvements on the app listings.

The Google Maps app got a recent minor update to v9.8. Version was released earlier this week on the Play Store and included adding batch photo uploads plus restricting bookings from being shown in location screens.

Google app updated with new voice commands for some Android apps

The Google app is one of the most important apps you could get on your Android phone. It can do a lot of things aside from just searching for whatever you need.

A recent app update has allowed Google to send commands and make other Android apps to do something. This makes any Android smartphone smarter than ever because some non-native apps are now prompted by Google to follow voice commands.

The wireless service which we've been anticipating since last year was finally launched last week. Most of the leaked information, including the name of the project, turned out to be true. What we didn't expect though was the fact that it's an invite-only service, at least, for now.
