Bose Soundsport Wireless review: The Bluetooth earbuds that finally converted me

In my search for a set of Bluetooth earbuds, I didn't expect Bose would come out on top. Having tried Jaybird's X3s and Freedoms, as well as the JLab Epic2s, Bose's offering seemed overpriced, unattractive, and offered inferior longevity compared to most competitors. But after over a week of using the Soundsport Wireless, they've easily become my go-to earbuds, despite their middling battery life and high price tag.

Excellent comfort, compelling audio, and a great app experience make up for the aforementioned shortcomings, and then some. Bose nailed it here.

Our Facebook request for a relationship status with Android might still be unrequited, but Google has made its love for crowd-sourced answers in Maps and Search official. Questions & answers had been in beta for a short time (and even before that, we knew it was coming).

Ah yes, Polaroid - once a major force in the world of photography is now just a brand name slapped on random products (like home security cameras and TVs).

Nokia 8 is official with Snapdragon 835 and 4GB RAM, likely not coming to the US

So far, HMD Global has released three Nokia-branded Android phones - the Nokia 6, 5, and 3. But the most-expensive model, the Nokia 6, still had a mid-range Snapdragon 430 processor. With HMD/Nokia's clean Android ROM and competitive pricing, many hoped for a true flagship model to be released. Now the time has come, as HMD has taken the wraps off the Nokia 8.

Waze's latest update might help the next time you get a flat tire

Google bought Waze quite a while back, and though many of us suspected it would quickly be folded into Google Maps, it's remained a separate service for the last five years. Even better, the app has been regularly updated with new features, even including support for Android Auto. But today's update might be one of the most generally useful in recent memory. Now you can request roadside help from other Waze users if you run into trouble driving.

Astro File Manager gets a complete redesign in v6.0 beta

One of the first apps I downloaded on Android was Astro File Manager, which was the clear leader in the early days of the platform. It's got more than 50 million downloads on the Play Store, but a lot of users have moved to other apps. Maybe some will come back to Astro with the new v6.0 update, which is currently in beta. It's a pretty significant redesign.

Photos v3.3 cleans up notification options on the settings screen [APK Download + Teardown]

A new version of Google Photos is rolling out to users today. Noticeable changes seem to be pretty scarce in both this release and the previous v3.2 update, or at least we haven't seen much in the way of differences. However, between the two, there are a few things to talk about. Today's update brings a little cleanup work to the Settings screen by grouping notification options together, as well multi-selection support in the shared libraries screen. There are also clues about a new themed video creation, enhanced rules for auto-saving shared photos, and some cost-saving measures for Airtel subscribers in India.

Google Home voice calling is rolling out in the US and Canada

One of the many announcements we saw at Google I/O 2017 was hands-free voice calling for the Google Home. Instead of Alexa's equivalent feature, which requires both people to have an Amazon account, the Google Home would use VoIP to call standard phone numbers. At long last, the feature is starting to roll out.

Some changes are coming to Google Docs, Slides, and Sheets today, and they'll make a big impact on your workflow if you use track changes.

Still, it'll save time if your organization needs custom add-ons.
