  2. Gboard for Android could soon get a redesign, here's how it looks Google has been reportedly working on a Gboard redesign for some time now and the company has finally started rolling it out to select beta testers. In the new look, Google is replacing the Roboto font with Product Sans for the characters on the keyboard which gives the new design a cleaner look. Google has also done away with the gray background, replacing it with white, and given the keys a gray tint. The shift, backspace, number switch, and enter key have a slightly darker gray tint to make them stand out from the o
  3. Vivaldi 3.3 for Android released with address bar at bottom option Vivaldi launched the first beta version of its mobile web browser for Google's Android operating system about a year ago. The browser included several customization options that most Chromium-based browsers lack, including support for displaying a tab bar in the browser or options to display scrollbars, something that is common only in desktop browsers. Vivaldi 3.3 for Android introduces new customization options and other new features. Vivaldi highlights two of them in a blog post on the offi
  4. Firefox 81 for Android gets much needed Downloads interface When Mozilla released the new Firefox web browser for Android, it appeared rushed in several regards and while users liked the improvements done to web compatibility and performance, others criticized Mozilla for various things including that only a few extensions are supported. Mozilla is working on bringing (some) of the missing features back. The Nightly version will get full add-ons support soon, and a new downloads page is about to be released as well. If you download files in the new mo
  5. WhatsApp users need to watch out for dangerous 'crash code' messages Fixing the problem could wipe out your chat history (Image credit: Shutterstock / Ink Drop) A new series if text bombs or 'crash codes' have been discovered that cause WhatsApp to continually crash on both iPhone and Android handsets. Specially coded messages containing a seemingly random string of strange characters cause rendering problems for WhatsApp, resulting in a loop of crashes. As well as undecipherable messages delivery crash codes, vCards (vi
  6. Firefox 81 for Android gets an automatic tab closing option The next version of the new Firefox mobile browser for Google's Android operating system includes a new automatic tab closing features. Tab opening and closing behavior differs highly between two major groups on the Internet. Lean users keep a small number of tabs open in the browser, and tend to close tabs quickly. Tab hoarders on the other hand have dozens or even hundreds of tabs open, and keep them open for a long time. I fall into the second category of users. While I don't keep hundreds
  7. After Android 10 and Android 11, Android phones really don't need yearly updates Let's move to a flexible schedule Android (Image credit: Shutterstock) Yearly smartphone operating system updates are one of those arbitrary things we've come to expect from Google (which makes Android) and Apple, but they don't really make sense. Take a look at the Android 11 features list - it's pretty bare, with only a few new additions that will be useful for niche audiences, like changed smart home and media controls, changes to how you
  8. You can now install any add-on in Firefox Nightly for Android, but it is complicated Mozilla released a new Firefox Nightly version for Android, and this one is special, as it is the first version of the new Firefox for Android that allows users to install any extension that is listed on Mozilla's official add-ons repository Mozilla AMO. The restoration of full add-ons support in Firefox for Android is a major request by users of the browser. While it is unclear how many Firefox users on Android used add-ons prior to being upgraded to the new Firefox, it is clear that
  9. BEIJING/SINGAPORE/SHENZHEN, China (Reuters) - China is preparing to launch an antitrust probe into Alphabet Inc's GOOGL.O Google, looking into allegations it has leveraged the dominance of its Android mobile operating system to stifle competition, two people familiar with the matter said. The case was proposed by telecommunications equipment giant Huawei Technologies Co Ltd last year and has been submitted by the country’s top market regulator to the State Council’s antitrust committee for review, they added. A decision on whether to proceed with a formal i
  10. VLC 3.3 for Android introduces a massive list of new features VideoLAN, the maker of the popular VLC Media Player, has released VLC 3.3 for Android today.

One of the first things that veteran users of the pl
  11. Android 11 review: features by the dozen Priority chat notifications, stricter privacy controls, and a new power menu TheThe official version of Android 11 is beginning to roll out today. It’s hitting Google’s own Pixel phones, of course, but in a pleasant surprise, there are a few others getting it right away, too. Most important among them are the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro. It’s a welcome improvement for the pace of Android updates, though the vast majority of Android phones won’t be getting the full OS update for some time. When (or,
  12.

  14. Spotify will now let you search using lyrics so you can find that one song stuck in your head Another way to search for songs Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge For those times when you’re constantly singing a line of a song but just can’t remember what song those lyrics came from, Spotify can now help you with that.

  15. Microsoft's Family Safety app exits preview, now generally available Microsoft announced the Family Safety app back in March when it rebranded Office 365 subscriptions to Microsoft 365. The Redmond firm began taking sign-ups for a preview and the preview became available to those users in May. Now, after a couple of months in testing, the company has announced that the service is being made available to Android and iOS starting this week.

In the next release cycle, which is due in about a month, the firm should switch users to its newly-built browser as the default option.

The dedicated Meet tab will let users check their schedules and join a meeting, create a new meetin
  19. Chrome for Android: new download options including scheduling Google is working on improving the download options provided by the company's Google Chrome web browser for the Android operating system. Current versions of Chrome for Android offer little when it comes to downloads. Downloads start immediately when you select to download files, and while that is probably wanted in most cases, there are cases where users may not want downloads to start immediately. A prime example is when the device is connected to a mobile network and not a wireless netwo

  22. Android is now the world’s largest earthquake detection network Google leverages the massive scale of Android to do phone-based earthquake tracking. Back in 2016, Ars reported on an interesting use for the bundle of sensors we carry around every day in our smartphones—earthquake detection. The accelerometers in your phone make a passable-enough seismometer, and together with location data and enough users, you could detect earthquakes and warn users as the shocks roll across the landscape. The University of California-Berkeley, a
