Drive File Stream is rolling out to all G Suite users

A lot of us have Google Drive repositories that are quite large, and that's especially true for enterprise customers. Cloud storage isn't as appealing when you need to sync all those files to your computer to get anything done, and that's why Google announced File Stream earlier this year. It was only for early adopters at the time, but now it's about to roll out to all G Suite users.

We've now received tips about a further change that's currently being tested which replaces the linear, swipe-left hamburger menu with a pull-down grid of options.

Duolingo launches Korean language course, Klingon coming by the end of the month

Duolingo's Korean for English speakers language learning page has been asking for people to sign up for a while now. It's one of the top languages people register their interest in and today the course is finally launching.

While I don't see the option in my Duolingo app yet, the lesson courses should show up soon — today, hopefully. They follow the same style as Duolingo's other courses, using fun cards, associations, listening skills, and a gamification aspect to keep you coming back for more lessons to improve your new language skills. Korean isn't the first East Asian language supported (Japanese and Vietnamese are already available), but it serves to grow Duolingo's coverage and appeal.

Nova Launcher 5.4.1 is out of beta, brings Sesame Shortcuts deep links to everyone

In July, Nova Launcher began testing a new feature in v5.4 beta: Sesame Shortcuts. Thanks to an integration with this third-party app, you could use Nova's app search and shortcuts to jump into a specific place or page inside more than 20 apps. For WhatsApp that means specific conversations, for Netflix it's about movies and shows, and there are more granular links for Spotify, Waze, Yelp, YouTube, Tasker, Reddit, and so on. Now that feature is out of beta and ready for primetime.

With v5.4.1, Sesame Shortcuts and a few other small changes are available to everyone on the stable channel of Nova.

[Dear God no] Facebook is testing comments with colored backgrounds

Facebook has made a lot of choices that people don't like, such as separating Messenger from the main Facebook app, making the Facebook app slow and huge, adding a ton of bloat to Messenger, etc. I could go on and on. But this latest potential addition could be the worst yet, at least to our eyes.
