[Can you hear me now?] A jaw-dropping 100 million WhatsApp voice calls are made each day

WhatsApp's voice calling doesn't seem like it has changed a lot since it was first tested as an invite-only feature then released to everyone in March of 2015. But the service, from my personal experience, has become more reliable, less spotty, with fewer delays and disconnections. Around me, everyone uses WhatsApp calls, because everyone is on WhatsApp to begin with, but also because local calls still aren't unlimited or cheap on any plan, not to mention the exorbitant prices of international calls. WhatsApp calls have almost completely replaced regular calls for us, and it's not hard to imagine that it must be the same in other countries where WhatsApp is popular too.

The solution to random reboots on the Pixel C is... an RMA replacement

Some Pixel C owners have had a rough time with Google's flagship tablet. Problems first started appearing last month, when the scheduled over-the-air update for May (plus some Android N preview builds that had already been available) started causing semi-random reboots, usually when the tablet had gone into its low-power mode running on battery. The June update failed to fix the problem, as did the fourth version of the Android N developer preview.

VNC Viewer for Android updated with Bluetooth mouse support and horizontal scrolling

Virtual Network Computing, better known as VNC, remains one of the most popular ways around to access remote computers. VNC Viewer, the official remote access app for Android from the developers of Real VNC, gets a substantial update today. The biggest improvement is the addition of support for Bluetooth mice and trackpads. Of course you could use them with the app before, but now the Viewer app will specifically interpret them to directly control the cursor of the remote machine instead of simply emulating local touches. It should also work with other connected peripherals, whether wireless or wired.

Never Alone comes to Android phones and tablets a year after Android TV release

I'm a big fan of atmospheric games that immerse you in their gameplay and story - Machinarium, The Wolf Among Us, and Lifeline are some of my favorites on Android. After being available on Android TV for almost a year, Never Alone, from developer Upper Line Games (published by E-Line Media) is now available on Android phones and tablets, and it looks like it's going to hit it out of the park.

Never Alone is based on Native Alaskan culture and experiences, with the Cook Inlet Tribal Council, a non-profit organization that works with indigenous people, assisting with development on the game.

In the real world it's a complex process of identifying wild animals that can be captured without danger to themselves or the environment, often requiring cooperation with conservationists, universities, and private dealers. In Rodeo Stampede, you rope them like a three-day-old calf, jump on their backs, and try not to run into a wall.The latest game from Crossy Road developer publisher Yodo1 and developer Featherweight Games isn't claiming to be anything close to authentic, but it's a lot of fun.
