Motorola announced the Moto Z2 Force recently with a price of $800, a full $80 more than the first generation device. That seemed especially bold when Motorola is still pushing Mods that can cost as much as $300. Now, the company appears to have dropped the price without so much as a word. The phone is currently listed on the Motorola website at $720, the same as last year's phone. Read More
Motorola used to have a very simple product lineup, but this is no longer the case. In fact, the G-series is becoming downright convoluted with all the slight variations. The G5S Plus popped up on the US Motorola site earlier today, and now the G5S Plus and G5S are official in Europe. They'll both come to the US later this year, but in slightly different forms.

In March, Truecaller made a bunch of announcements for version 8 of the app, including a planned integration with Google Duo. At the time, the feature was promised "in the coming months" and it looks like those months have elapsed as the latest Truecaller changelog says the option is now live.
Both users need to have the Google Duo app installed, so this isn't some magical built-in Duo tech but it's more like a quick shortcut to launch a video call without leaving the Truecaller app. Video calls can be started from your contact's details page, the chat screen (if you're talking to them through Truecaller), and the missed call notification.

If you're looking for a particular image of something, Google search is a powerful tool. Sometimes you might be looking for more than just the image itself, though, and that often leads to scrolling through a ton of photos and opening up the ones you hope will lead you to the right content. That can be a laborious task, but Google has just announced a new feature that should lend a hand. It's introducing badges to indicate what content lies behind certain images. Read More
Moto is still on a mission to confuse everyone with a multitude of devices that differ ever so slightly in specs and nomenclature. The latest is the Moto G5S Plus, a bigger version of the current Moto G5 Plus, which is a bigger version of the regular G5. See? Simple. We first heard about the G5S Plus last month when specs of the device leaked, but now it's official.
The G5S Plus keeps the metal body of the current G5 lineup, but it improves it thanks to a unibody anodized aluminum design. It also has the same water repellent nano-coating, the same Snapdragon 625 processor and Adreno 506 GPU under the hood, MicroUSB charging and 3.5mm headphone port, and the same battery capacity at 3000mAh.

With Android now running on over 2 billion active devices around the world, it's no surprise to see many popular apps beginning to cross the 100 million (or even 1 billion) download milestone. The most recent member of this select club is the popular VLC player for Android, which has just been downloaded over 100 million times on Android devices. As always, this counter is per device and not per account, meaning that if you've installed VLC on more than one of your devices over the years, then you've also contributed more than once towards this download count.
VLC isn't the most popular video player on Android — that crown would probably have to go to MX Player — but it is arguably the second most popular. Read More
For businesses that use both G Suite and Microsoft Office, the Google Calendar Interop for Microsoft Exchange is an important utility. It connects the two platforms allowing users of both to connect with one another and share appointment information. Google has just announced some improvements to the service, including real-time calendar lookups shared between the systems. Read More
