Motorola Probably Still Has A Moto Z Play In the Works, Along With Pro Camera Mod and Waterproof Adventure Mod

Motorola announced the Moto Z yesterday with fewer Moto Mod accessories than were previously rumored. There's even an entire phone from previous leaks that didn't make an appearance. According to HelloMotoHK, those are still happening, and there are new-ish images. The phone is code named Vertex, and the remaining Mods were still called Amps when these images were produced.

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.

Motorola: Moto X Is Not Dead, Moto Z Provides A "Different Experience"

When I was at Lenovo's Tech World event yesterday, during a press briefing someone asked what Moto Z meant for Moto X. I heard the answer, but I wasn't entirely clear on exactly what was said and hadn't recorded it (my mistake), so I reached out to Motorola via email last night to ask them to comment on the whole X to Z transition. It turns out that there isn't a transition, so much as just a new member of the family: Moto Z is not replacing Moto X, at least not at this time. Motorola's statement follows.

Moto X is alive and well.

[Specs Comparison] Moto Z & Moto Z Force

Yesterday, the Moto Z and Moto Z Force were unveiled by the new owners of the Moto brand, Lenovo. The devices showcase some bold, if controversial, design choices. While they may be lacking headphone jacks, they are not lacking for power or top-notch specs worthy of their flagship designation.

To help you sort out the differences between the two, we've prepared this handy-dandy chart. Clean your glasses and turn up your screen brightness – it's specs ogling time.

Uber Takes Lyft's Path, Announces Scheduled Rides Starting In Seattle

Only a couple of weeks after Lyft announced its own scheduled rides, Uber is following suit and implementing its own take on the feature. The main difference between Uber's and Lyft's is that the latter doesn't allow you to schedule rides more than 24 hours in advance, but the former is letting you do it up to 30 days beforehand. This gives you leeway to "reserve" rides way ahead of time, to make sure you are done with your flight planning or major business trips preparation.

To schedule an Uber ride, you simply head into the app and choose the uberX then tap "Schedule a ride." You then pick the date, time, pickup location, and drop-off destination, then confirm it.

[Deal Alert] Nest Cam Is $50 Off For Father's Day, Now $149

Father's day is fast approaching and if you're stuck and don't know what to get your dad/husband or if you're the dad and don't know what to ask your kids to get you, then here's an idea Nest is suggesting: grab a Nest Cam for $50 off. That brings the security camera's price down to $149, its lowest yet. Previous sales had it at $170 but not less.

If you're wondering about the Father's Day connection, Nest jokingly says it could be used to catch robbers sure, but also to help dad see who ate the chips, or to record those moments when he saves the day or those weird incidents that happen during family gatherings and so on.
