Blizzard's official Overwatch League app now live on the Play Store

Some of you may not know that we have an Overwatch team here at Android Police. Well, by "team," I mean three of us play Overwatch together sometimes. And, by "play," I mean that two of us flail against a keyboard and get carried by Corbin. Anyway, Blizzard has just released the official Overwatch League app for following the competitive esport's inaugural league season, giving you yet another avenue to not watch us play.

Many of you probably know about the Anker PowerHouse, a massive 434Wh battery that can be had for $499.99.

[Update: rolling out to G Suite customers] Google Calendar on the web finally moves to Material Design

Google unveiled Material Design all the way back in 2014 (has it really been that long?). At the time, the company promised that it would use that design language across all its products, on mobile and desktop.

One of the major holdouts was the Google Calendar web app, which has changed very little over the past few years.

Still, the company made a sequel last year, so people must be buying them. The third-generation model was unveiled at CES, along with an insane 146-inch TV that Samsung calls 'The Wall.'

There's a familiar refrain from the readers here at AP every time another smart home solution gets Assistant integration: what about Insteon?
