Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA update ready to roll out next week

When Android Marshmallow  was announced last August, we were prepared to wait a bit longer for the official OTA update from Google to be released. We knew it will be sometime in October or as soon as the new Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P devices are launched on September 29. We even said it will be ready to roll out on October 5. Now that the two new Nexus phones, new Chromecast, Chromecast Audio, and the Google Pixel C are out, we're eager to know when the tech giant will serve us the Marshmallow.

Save the universe, save the world in Into the Void, now on Android

Haven’t you ever watched a sic-fi TV show or movie and thought to yourself, “Man, if this were a game or even real life, I would do things differently.” Well this new game on Android isn’t really based on a movie, but the complicated and intricate storyline does play out like one. Into the Void is a combination of RPG and TBS (turn-based strategy, if you’re unfamiliar with the term) game that is now on Android and may disrupt your life in the next few weeks.

Google announces Play Music Family Plans

If you’ve been sharing a music streaming account in order to save a little bit of money, but end up listening to music that’s not necessarily your jam but your sister/mother/father/brother/friend loves, then it’s time for you to just get a family plan instead of just one account.

BuzzFeed news app now available for Android devices

If you’ve spent a few minutes or even hours down the rabbit hole of BuzzFeed articles while in the process of doing “research” for work or school, then you’d probably stay away from this app. Or not, if it really is for academic or professional purposes. The site, which had a hand in propagating the listicle-type articles, has now released their first app for Android devices, after being available for some months now for iOS.

Google Pixel C hands-on: a wonderfully strange Android tablet

Well, there you have it folks! Google does have another high-resolution Pixel device and one that runs Android instead of Chrome OS. We're still not sure what the "C" in its name stands for, but the Pixel C is undeniably Google's attempt to make an Android tablet that is fit for work. Or for text input to be exact. Coming with a keyboard dock that magnetically latches on to the tablet part, the Pixel C might yet be the most premium 2-in-1 Android tablet in the market.

Nexus 5X hands-on: a gentle step forward from the past

As remarkably different as the Nexus 6P is, the Nexus 5X is almost the opposite. Coming from a familiar name, the third LG Nexus smartphone also bears some familiar features, though wrapped in a body that is both familiar and strange. Given how much the smartphone has been leaked, there are very little surprises waiting for us with the Nexus 5X but perhaps that is the point. The Nexus 5X isn't meant to break new ground but instead offer something familiar to those who want to step just a bit up.
