Now the latest update to the app brings you better support for both Android Wear supported wearables as Android-run tablets.

Google adds more countries for carrier billing and Play Card

Since a lot of people are expected to buy smartphones and tablets this coming Christmas season, it's important for Google to have as many payment options as possible for those who want to purchase apps and games.

HTC One M8, One M7 to get Android 5.0 Lollipop next month

We already know that HTC is planning to roll out Android Lollipop updates for some HTC phones. We saw some leaked photos last month of an HTC One M8 running Lollipop and Sense 6.0. HTC said the update would arrive once the final build of the platform is ready. That should be sometime in February but looks like the update is coming earlier in January. This is good news for HTC One M8 and HTC One M7 owners who've only been waiting for the sweet Lollipop update. The Taiwan-based phone manufacturer was actually the first companies to outline their Android 5.0 plans so this is really good news.

YouTube 6.0 now offers live chat to phones and tablets

Live chatting during YouTube live streams will soon be widely available. Thanks to the recent app update that brings the Live Chat feature to mobile devices. The YouTube 6.0 version now allows live commenting or live chatting when videos are streaming. This isn't actually new because it's already possible on desktop. Google's migration to Hangouts has brought this change so it's really a good thing. Google has not made an official announcement but the updated version is on Google Play.

Android 5.0.1 lands on Nexus 5, T-Mobile pushes to Nexus 6 too

The circle seems to be complete and Google has finally uploaded the rather mysterious Android 5.0.1 to the Nexus 5 as well. This practically finishes the release of this rather unexpected Lollipop update, which first began with the Nexus tablets and then the Nexus smartphones, sans the Nexus 5, at least until now. In the meantime, T-Mobile has also received the update and has started pushing it to both the Nexus 5 as well as the more current Nexus 6.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition finally gets Android Lollipop

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition is finally getting the much-awaited Android 5.0 Lollipop. This means the smartphone will be a lot sweeter as the software update has started to roll out. Last year's flagship phone from the South Korean giant was the first GPE device but is now among the last ones to get a taste of the sweet Lollipop. This brings new platform features to the bestselling Galaxy S4 but it will only be the Android 5.0.0 and not the 5.0.1 update recently released. The preview we saw earlier this month was true after all.
