Google’s Play Store is full of apps and games, but one category that has taken off more in the last year or so is messaging applications. There are a ton of messaging apps available on Android, many of which see millions of active users each and every day. Leading the charge is Facebook, who just this week announced a brand new messaging app, and the possibility of another.
Smartwatches were the hype of 2016. Apple, Samsung and many others got heavily invested in the wearable market, trying to make it the next big thing in mobile tech. Even though the market for wearables now seems like it won’t be the next revolution in consumer electronics, Google is still updating its Android Wear operating system.
A new Huawei smartphone is on the forecast, and rumors are just starting to emerge. The Chinese company will announce its Huawei P10 successor, presumably the Huawei P11, some time within the next few months. Interestingly though, the latest leak suggests that the Android flagship phone will bring not one, not two, but three rear cameras.
There are a lot of choices when it comes to messaging apps on Android, and a recent report suggests that a new one is coming.
In November, Huawei announced Honor 7X, the successor of last year’s widely successful Honor 6X. Despite giving us information on the latest Honor creation, the company didn’t confirm plans to release the phone in the US territory, that is until today.
Google and Amazon share a large piece of the smart home market. Hence, the two are very competitive with each other. A few weeks ago, we were informed that Google had blocked YouTube from being used on select Amazon smart devices, due to the retailer removing Google’s sale listings of Chromecast on its retail site. Matters are only getting worse, as Google will now remove YouTube access on Amazon’s Echo Show speaker and the company’s Fire TV consoles.
Google previewed Android Go for the first time earlier this year at Google I/O 2017. Now, the search giant has launched Android Oreo ‘Go Edition,’ with Android 8.1 Oreo.
Earlier this year, Samsung released a fitness wearable namely the ‘Gear Fit2 Pro.’ A deal is actively being run on it for the holiday season, but you’ll have to act fast.
