Android Auto messaging features helps you stay connected but focused

These car accessories and digital car modules have helped a lot of drivers stay connected, but it is still pretty much dangerous, as you can get easily distracted with other screens in front of you. But the recently-released Android Auto platform says that it can help users still stay focused while driving, while letting you still be connected to your messages, emails, and other important things you need to take care off while you're on your way somewhere.

Web Browser for Android TV works ala Chrome but not quite

Android TV is one platform that has yet to be the standard in smart TVs but it's exciting to think about the future of television. TV-watching (couch potatoing?)  has changed in the past decade, thanks to the introduction of the Internet, mobile apps, and the more hi-tech TV models. There are only a few Android TV devices in the market but the platform is what makes them more attractive to use. Apps are still limited though. You'd think a web browser would be easy to develop since Google already has Chrome but there's no official web browser app yet.

You can make faster Hangouts voice calls when new update rolls out

If you're not satisfied with just chatting with colleagues or friends over Hangouts and have been dependent on making voice calls through the app and/or desktop, chances are you've noticed that it's not as fast as it should be. Don't worry, it's not just your carrier's fault, but it's the connection speed within some of Google's apps like Gmail and Inbox where you can also make the voice calls. But a new update to the apps and to the desktop will solve that problem and allow you to make faster calls.

Mailbox for Android receives Material Design update

Long before there was Inbox by Gmail, the whole app that started us going for a zero inbox as one of our digital goals was Dropbox' own Mailbox. When it finally arrived on Android devices, we were quite pleased that getting rid of those 2,000+ emails was going to be easier now while using our mobile gadgets. The latest update to the app now makes it look like a true-blue Google app, at least in certain aspects.

You can now send photos through BitTorrent’s Bleep messaging app

A few months after BitTorrent launched the Alpha version of their messaging app Bleep, we're finally getting an update.

There are also a few minor tweaks added, but the app is still in the Alpha mode, although they are already laying the groundwork for the beta version soon.

SNK Playmore brings Fatal Fury Special to Android

SNK brings another one of its classic franchises into Android by porting Fatal Fury Special into an app via the Google Play Store. Most of SNK Playmore’s games – if you check their app line-up – will either be related to the King of Fighters or Metal Slug line of games. But at least we’re getting one not just for variation’s sake, but a total classic of a fighting game as well.
