YouTube Music v1.26 Brings YouTube Playlists To The Likes Tab And Makes A Few Visual Adjustments [APK Download]

Many YouTube Red subscribers aren't making use of the dedicated YouTube Music app yet, but it remains one of the somewhat unique perks of the program. Since launch, the app hasn't seen all that many changes, but updates have been coming out pretty regularly with little tweaks and adjustments. Last week, an unexpected jump from v1.20 to v1.25 suggested some big changes were afoot. A teardown didn't reveal anything of substance – just some minor visual tweaks – but a new changelog has come out since the release of v1.26 this week, and gives us something a little more meaningful.

What's New

Official Changelog:

  • New: Listen to your YouTube playlists in the YouTube Music app!

Messenger 1.8.266 Adds A SIM Card Messages Manager [APK Download]

Google's SMS app, Messenger, is one of those apps that does what it says on the tin: it sends and receives SMS messages, and can manage them too. With version 1.8.266, a new feature is coming to Messenger: the ability to manage messages which are saved to the SIM card. It's not clear if the previous versions of Messenger could see these messages but had no interface for displaying them, or if they were completely invisible.

A bit of a history lesson: back when phones had very little storage, the SIM card would sometimes be used for saving messages instead of the phone.

Adding And Editing Places In Google Maps Now Available Worldwide

If you're part of the Google Maps Local Guides program, you've probably received an email in the past day telling you that editing and adding places is now available worldwide. But if you're a real Local Guides participant, then you must have noticed this several weeks ago.

See, when Maps tells you that you can add a missing place, fill out more information for an existing place, and edit wrong details, that used to come with an asterisk that only those of us unlucky enough to live in some countries knew: these options were only accessible in about 87 countries and territories.

Five Years Ago, A Google Dev Told Us App Gifting Was On Their List Of Things To Do (It's Still Not There)

As we approach Google I/O 2016, I was engaged in my Thursday ritual of looking for something to throw back to. A Throwback Thursday, if you will. What I stumbled upon was too good to just link on our social networks for consumption - I was floored the moment I read it, and then overcome with a strange combination of the giggles and sadness. Back in 2011 at I/O, as they still do today, Google held "office hours" for developers. Artem was there for AP that year, and he used some of his time asking about things that you, our readers, submitted after a call for questions.

[Update: APK Download] Google Project Fi Updates Fix Data Toggle Bug, Allow Users To Block Incoming Calls

Google's Fi mobile virtual network allows users an impressive amount of fine grain control when it comes to selecting their data allowances. That being the case, it's especially important for users on low tiers to be aware of said usage, and to limit their data consumption when they stray away from the Wi-Fi homestead. A bug in the system created a problem there: it sometimes kept the GSM and/or LTE connection active if a user turned the data toggle off while still on Wi-Fi.

New NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet Pops Up At The FCC

However, it has yet to mention a true successor to the tablet. A new NVIDIA device has just hit the FCC, and it looks like a new SHIELD Tablet, if the documents are to be believed.
