[Update: Prices for current Pixels are now up] Google Store's trade-in program is already live for the Pixel, and the offers aren't great

We first learned about a possible trade-in program that Google was running with the launch of the Moto X4 on Android One. But at that time, we only knew that Nexus devices would be eligible for offers up to $165, and that trade-ins before October 5th would get an additional $50 of Fi credit. The Google Store's trade-in program has now gone live ahead of the Pixel 2 launch, and the offers are unsurprisingly low.

Android Messages updated again, reinstating the FAB and potentially fixing the notification bug [APK Download]

Google's stock SMS app for Android should be an undramatic affair, but it's been in the news more than you might expect recently. This is largely due to a bug that has been preventing notifications for many people, and that's a pretty big problem for a messaging app. The decision to remove the FAB (floating action button) in the last update has been controversial, too. In the latest update, it seems everything is back to "normal."

Google app is testing "Saved" pages in the side menu and a new bookmark icon in Custom Tabs

In its perpetual move toward making our lives as Android journalists impossible, Google has started rolling out a new test in the Google app. As always, I'm calling it "new" because this is the first time that I recall seeing this among the thousands of tips we receive, but it could have been showing up for some users for a lot longer. This one involves Google's integration of its new "saved" images, places, and pages in the mobile Android app.

But first, let's clear a couple of things. The "Saved" icon started rolling out in Google's mobile site as part of a new sidemenu around the beginning of August.

LG expands its list of Assistant-compatible appliances, offers free Google Home with every new purchase

LG announced its Google Home integration back in May, but at the time only a few models from its Signature line of appliances was compatible with the Assistant. LG is expanding this list now to 87 WiFi-connected refrigerators, ovens, dishwashers, washing machines, dryers, vacuums, air purifiers, A/Cs, and more.

The integration first requires your appliance to be set up through the LG SmartThinQ app (wow, terrible ratings), and then you have to link that to your Assistant. LG isn't a first-party partner yet (it's not in the Home Control section like Hue and Nest), so you'll have to search through Assistant's integrations (blue icon on the top right when launching Assistant on a phone) to find it.
