Rumor: Amazon Realizes All The Cool Kids Have Subscription Music Services, Now Building Its Own

Amazon is apparently hoping the third time's a charm when it comes to music services, at least if a new rumor from Reuters is to be believed (which, yeah, it probably should be). According to Reuters, Amazon will launch a $9.99 per month music subscription service to compete with the likes of Spotify, Apple Music, Play Music, and others.

If you remember, Amazon MP3 was actually Android's stock internet music player back in the day, until Amazon and Google had a falling out over Fire OS that to this day has lingered with consequences for consumers, like Android TV not having Amazon Instant Video.

Chrome Dev 53 Adds Flag To Show Tab Colors In Tab Manager UI [APK Download]

Want to spice up your tab view? There's a flag for that... if you're using Chrome Developer Channel v53 on Android. The newest Chrome Dev for Android adds a new flag for just that: #tab-switcher-theme-colors. When enabled, this flag will color your open tabs in the tab manager interface in Chrome, just as they're colored when viewing a single page. The tab theme-color attribute was finally added to all versions of Chrome regardless of your usage of merged tabs back in January earlier this year. I have to admit, it does look pretty sweet to see your tab colors in the tab manager UI.

Big VSCO 4.0 Update With Even More Incomprehensible UI Now Rolling Out On Android

VSCO started as just a camera and photo editing app, but it's grown into a little hipster-y image sharing community. The company announced a visual redesign last week, and it has started rolling out slowly on Android. This update brings gestures to the interface, but not normal ones. No, these are bizarre and confusing gestures.

LG Now Has Its Own Security Bulletin Like Google And Samsung

A Closer Look At Lenovo's Flexible Display Wrist Phone And Foldable Tablet

Yesterday at Lenovo's Tech World event, the company demoed two concept products that were, frankly, kind of amazing. A foldable tablet-phone, and a bendable wrist-phone. While the on-stage demo didn't really tell us much about them, I sat in on a talk where we were allowed to take a closer look (though not touch, sadly) at these concept devices while learning more about them though.

Google Says Marshmallow Memory Leak Is Fixed In A 'Future Release'

You don't have to look far on the internet to find someone complaining about a memory leak in Android. There is, of course, the infamous Lollipop memory leak that was fixed in Android 5.1, but Google just crossed another big one off the list. According to the Android issue tracker, Marshmallow system memory leak issue 195104 has been closed with a status of "future release." That probably means Android N or a monthly patch.

Facebook Adds 360-Degree Photos On Android, Videos In Comments Too

We're probably all used to the panorama or photospheres we can take on our phones these days - compared to a normal photo, both are just so much more immersive. Facebook's obviously picked up on this, and is rolling out support for 360 photos on the web, Android, and iOS via its 'Facebook 360' initiative.

Looking at the 360 photo of the Supreme Court from The New York Times, the viewing experience is really good - tilting the phone alters the viewpoint of the picture, moving it smoothly and cleanly on my Nexus 6P. Functionally, they appear to be the same as what you'd see in the Google Photos app or on the web, but there's something about having the feature on Facebook that just makes it seem more real, more mainstream.

Google App v6.0.17 Is Readying Data Saver, Snoozing Reminders, Signed-Out Search Mode, And Three Exercising Mascots [APK Teardown + Download]

Anytime there's a big version jump, there's almost always something pretty big to be found. The Google app just leapt from v5.14 to v6.0, but those big new features don't seem to be showing up quite yet. That doesn't mean there isn't still something to see. A teardown shows that there are at least a few things to look out for, either now or in the future. This version appears to be rolling out through the beta channel, so if you want to check it out without signing up to the beta, or if it hasn't rolled out to you yet, there's a download link at the bottom.
