GalaxyNote3-Thumb

Sprint started rolling out Wi-Fi calling earlier this year, but so far the carrier has only introduced the feature to a couple of eclectic devices. Now another device is making the list. Starting today, Sprint Galaxy Note 3 owners should receive an update enabling the feature. According to the change log, it doesn't look like this OTA will bring about anything else. The version number is N900PVPUCNC5.

Once the update lands, users will be able to make voice calls and send SMS messages over Wi-Fi without using up their plan (for those who don't have unlimited minutes/text).

Microsoft and Google are ostensibly competitors, but Redmond seems to be setting aside its mobile aspirations in the name of supporting its new game console... and considering all the money in gaming, it's easy to understand why. So in addition to both Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions of the official SmartGlass app, there's now a separate beta build of the Xbox One app.

The beta version was introduced to help test a series of incoming features, which are outlined in this post on Microsoft's official Xbox portal.

Google has made its monthly update to the developer dashboard with new platform distribution numbers, and KitKat is on a roll (finally). After making up only 2.5% of active Android devices last month, it's now at 5.3%. Yes, it more than doubled. Those continued Samsung updates probably have a lot to do with the jump.

A new item just popped up in the Play Store sidebar called My Play Activity. Once it's fully deployed, this will act as a list of all the Play Store content you have reviewed and shared. It's essentially the web-based version of the recent activity page in the updated Play Store app.

You can't go 5 minutes on the web today without tripping some sort of an April Fools' mine, but even armed with this knowledge, I walked right into this one.

Ringtones, notification sounds... There were no survivors. Damn you, @ciwrl!

Edit: So very sneaky.

Google's 25% off cases sale has returned, and thankfully so. The products the company offers in the Play Store aren't cheap. Yet while there are more affordable options to be found elsewhere, there's nothing quite like a first-party case to provide a perfect fit and that proud Nexus branding. Now you can again snag up one for the Nexus 5 or Nexus 7 at 75% of the original price.
