OK Google voice command is broken on Android Auto, but a fix is coming soon

The “OK Google” voice command first came to fruition on the Nexus 5, but it’s since made its way across the Google product portfolio. It’s especially useful on Android Auto, where it enables drivers to interact with their head units without getting too distracted. Unfortunately, it’s currently broken and requires a workaround.

Loads of users are reporting this issue in the Google Product Forums’ Android Auto User Community. Many are also suggesting fixes they’ve found, but they’re not reliable.

Classic shoot ’em up RAYSTORM is finally available on Android

It would appear that TAITO Corporation has not completely forgotten about us Android users when it comes to a mobile version of RAYSTORM. Seeing that iOS received theirs all the way back in 2012, it almost appeared as though we would never see the port. But lo and behold, RAYSTORM has officially been released on the Play Store, and it is just as great as it was on the PS1.

ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 (Z500M) gets Android 7.0 Nougat OTA

When Corbin reviewed the ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 — whoa, that’s a mouthful — at the end of 2016, he called it the iPad Air running Android. The display and speed impressed him, but one of his major complaints was the software: both the added ASUS customizations and the fact that it ran Marshmallow gave him pause before recommending it. At the time, ASUS said that Nougat would come to the tablet, but wasn’t sure when.

Google’s new Android app makes it easy to save mobile data on the go


The good folks at Android Police have spotted a new app from Google called Triangle; it lets you control which other apps can use your mobile data. It’s a handy little tool if you’re stuck on a crappy plan or are low on credits abroad. Just fire up Triangle, grant it the necessary permissions (including one that allows it to set up a VPN), and you can then monitor data usage, and restrict apps from consuming mobile data – even if you’ve 2G/3G/4G data turned on. That’s useful for times when you might forget that you’re on limited data, and…

Timecraft is a cool Minecraft-inspired Android Wear watch face by Tha PHLASH

What’s time but a series of building blocks of infinitesimally small moments? You change one block and the whole structure could be modified, you add and add and add more blocks, hoping the final result is beautiful and meaningful, and you look around at others’ structures learning from them and sometimes envying or criticizing them. That’s one philosophical way of introducing this new watch face by Tha PHLASH, Timecraft.

Like its name and all of the screenshots here suggest, Timecraft is inspired by Minecraft.

Fandango adds Android Pay support, all purchases are $3 off this month when you use it

The Fandango app for Android isn’t very good. It’s just a web wrapper for the most part, and half the time when I try to buy tickets, the purchase times out and I have to try again. But now, there’s one major reason to use it over the mobile site – Android Pay.

Now when you buy tickets through the Android app, Android Pay shows up as a payment option.

Enpass password manager adds Android O’s Autofill in latest beta

One of the features that I’m most excited about in Android O is the official Autofill API support. Thanks to it, password manager apps wouldn’t need to work as overlays or stay as constant notifications and they wouldn’t require you use their keyboard or browser to simplify login details input in different apps. Instead, you choose whichever third-party app you use as your Autofill provider and Android will call it up each time it sees a username and password field, allowing for more seamless input.

New Asus Zenfone 3 Laser update brings Android 7.1.1

Asus has started pushing out a new update to its Zenfone 3 Laser (ZC551KL) smartphone. Arriving as version V30.41.12.1, the update brings along Android 7.1.1 Nougat. It’s worth mentioning the phone first received the Nougat update (Android 7.0) in April. Sadly, the update’s official announcement doesn’t say what else is included, although some usual improvements/enhancements and bug fixes could well be there. As is usually the case with OTA roll outs, it might take some time for the update to hit your device. Source | Via

Oxenfree is awesome point-and-click game set in the 80’s, and now it’s on Android

Oxenfree, a very highly regarded game for both PC and consoles, has just been released for Android. It’s a 2d point-and-click adventure game, with a late 80’s spin. And, it’s excellent. If you don’t trust me on that, trust the somewhat crazy 93% the game has on Steam right now. 

This won’t be a full review (It’s a long game), but I spent a good while tapping around on the Android version.
