If you’ve noticed low volume levels in calls after updating to the latest version of Duo, don’t worry; you’re not alone (well, not amongst Duo users). Google has begun to pull Duo v30 and is now reverting everyone back to v29.2.

Android P feature spotlight: Pulling down on notifications vibrates the phone

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

We’ve covered a massive amount of changes in Android P, from sweeping changes like the new notification styles, to small changes like the settings gear on Picture-in-Picture windows. Admittedly, this new feature falls into the latter category, but we thought it was still worth mentioning.

As it says in the title, pulling down on the notification tray causes the device to slightly vibrate. It’s controlled by the ‘Vibrate on Tap’ system setting, which is also present in Android Oreo (but it doesn’t cause the notification pulldown to vibrate on that version).

Apple reportedly killing iTunes LPs in March, pulling them throughout 2018

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND


According to a report from Metro this morning, Apple will be discontinuing its multimedia album format iTunes LP starting at the end of this month. The report claims Apple informed industry partners that iTunes LP submissions will not be accepted after March 2018 and that existing LPs will be removed from the iTunes Store through the end of 2018.

iTunes LP was released in 2009 as part of Apple’s ongoing efforts to bring the music industry into the online age and bundled music tracks, photos, and videos into sets similar to multimedia CD/DVDs. Once downloaded, each iTunes LP offered an interactive experience through which songs could be heard alongside graphics or videos, encouraging users to purchase a complete album at full price rather than buying individual songs.

While Apple’s decision to pull the feature was apparently shared with industry partners two weeks ago, Metro today shared details of a letter titled “The End of iTunes LPs,” originating from “The iTunes Store” and signed by “The Apple Music Team.” According to the letter, while iTunes LP content will no longer be accepted after March 2018 and will be “deprecated from the store during the remainder of 2018,” Apple will preserve some access to iTunes LPs: “Customers who have previously purchased an album containing an iTunes LP will still be able to download the additional content using iTunes Match.”

An attempt to download a previously purchased iTunes LP through the iTunes Store today yielded only audio tracks, minus the iTunes LP multimedia content. It’s unclear how iTunes, which has been heavily updated with Apple Music and other integrations since iTunes LP’s debut, currently handles the feature. An iTunes Store link to “See All Albums with iTunes LP” doesn’t appear to work when tapped within the store, but it can be accessed by clicking above. The store’s list of “Recent Releases” for the format spotlights albums dated 2014 and earlier.

Although Metro sensationally suggests that the reported discontinuation of iTunes LPs “has sparked fears it’s planning to kill off iTunes” and “chimes with rumours that Apple is intending to stop selling music downloads and shift to a subscription model,” the move is unlikely to have anywhere near that impact. Though hundreds of iTunes LPs were released, the format never achieved mass popularity, and the announcement is specific to one very small segment of store content.

We have reached out to Apple for comment and will update it if we hear anything new or different on the story.

LG reportedly pulling out of the Chinese smartphone market

LG Mobile is allegedly set on pulling out of the Chinese smartphone market, reports in local publications state. The news comes following the release of LG’s 2017 financial results last week. Record-breaking revenue of LG Electronics as a whole may sound good, but the mobile division in particular posted a $ 192M operating loss for Q4, with ‘strong competition from Chinese brands’ specifically quoted in the press release. Chinese brands have proven too tough of a competition in their home market, apparently – LG was estimated to have sold just 160,000 units in the country in the…

Here’s why Niantic pulling Pokemon GO from older iPhones really matters

If there’s one thing that Pokemon GO did well, it was bringing people together. I still remember seeing groups of people around the marina near where I live in the weeks after the game came out, all of them trying to grab some water Pokemon. There was a community, a bunch of disparate people brought together to catch some make believe monsters.

Ad targeters are pulling data from your browser’s password manager

Nearly every web browser now comes with a password manager tool, a lightweight version of the same service offered by plugins like LastPass and 1Password. But according to new research from Princeton’s Center for Information Technology Policy, those same managers are being exploited as a way to track users from site to site.

The researchers examined two different scripts — AdThink and OnAudience — both of are designed to get identifiable information out of browser-based password managers. The scripts work by injecting invisible login forms in the background of the webpage and scooping up whatever the browsers autofill into the available slots. That information can then be used as a persistent ID to track users from page to page, a…

Amazon will start selling Chromecast and Apple TV after pulling them in 2015, Google Home still not available

Amazon removed the Chromecast, Nexus Player, and Apple TV from its online store in 2015. Amazon said the products’ lack of Prime Video support (which Amazon itself is responsible for adding) could confuse buyers, but most saw it as a thinly-veiled attempt to boost sales of its own Fire TV lineup. Since then, Google and Amazon’s feud has only escalated.

The recent drama around the Echo Show (where Amazon implemented its own YouTube player without Google’s approval) and Amazon’s removal of some Nest products seemed to be the final straw.

The ‘Check for update’ button on Pixel/Nexus devices still isn’t pulling the latest OTAs as promised, but it’ll be fixed in 2018

There was much celebration in the Android Police virtual HQ earlier this year when Googler Elliott Hughes revealed that the much-maligned “Check for update” button was getting an overhaul. After so many pointless presses, this button would finally do something on Pixel and Nexus devices. If there was an update available, the button would download it. However, this feature still isn’t working. According to Hughes, the bug that broke this feature will be fixed in early 2018.
