If you're excited to try out YouTube's new music subscription service, you may not have long to wait. We've gotten several tips this morning from users who now have access to YouTube Music Key on the web, though that access doesn't seem to extend to the Android app just yet. Most users seem to be left out at the moment, so it's probably another one of Google's frustrating staged rollouts.

Having the latest version of the YouTube app (5.17) installed on your phone doesn't seem to help, though at least one reader with Music Key enabled said that there were now no ads being shown during music videos.

As today's Deal of the Day, Amazon is offering the 16GB version of last year's Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 for only $259. The 32GB model goes for a slightly more expensive $274, and the 64GB model comes in at $289.

With the first two models, we're talking about a savings of $140. The 64GB sees a discount of $160. Either way, this amounts to a pretty big chunk of change, and it just goes to show that it can pay to wait until hardware is no longer brand spanking new before making a purchase.

In a somewhat surprising, but completely understandable, move, Google has added a pretty large caveat to Play Store app submissions for Android TV. According to the Android developer documentation page on submitting apps, the company will pre-screen and approve all Android TV apps before making them available for download via the platform's marketplace.

Before distributing apps to the Play Store on Android TV devices, our team reviews apps for usability with a DPAD (apps) and Gamepad (games only) and other quality guidelines.

So, we just found out that the AT&T version of the Nexus 6, which everyone had assumed up to this point would be exactly like every other Nexus 6, is not in fact like every other Nexus 6. It has been... branded - allegedly. At least according to AT&T's BusinessDirect device site.

If you ordered a Nexus 6 from AT&T, you probably did not expect this. You probably did not want this.

Into every life a little rain must fall. Across every software update a few bugs will crawl. The most glaring problem for new users of Android 5.0 on the Nexus 7 2013 is a bug that appears to be stopping video playback dead. You can see a few users reporting the issue here, and we've seen it on at least one Android Police staff member's tablet. The good news is that there appear to be a few ways that you can fix it.

Want a hot deal on a Nexus 9... which will hopefully last longer than that nigh-inexistent one from HTC? Then head over to Amazon right now. One of the online dealer's "lightning deals" is fifty bucks off of the base 16GB model, bringing the total price down to $349.99. If you're an Amazon Prime subscriber, you can enjoy free shipping as well.

This is only for the black 16GB model - all others, including the white variant, are not discounted.

The web browser version of Google Play Music isn't exactly full-featured - it pales in comparison even to built-in tools like Windows Media Player or iTunes. But now it has one more tool that's bringing it a little closer: a visualizer. A visualizer is an overlay that presets a visual accompaniment to a musical track. Some of them get pretty elaborate, some of them aren't much more than a graphic equalizer.

There are a lot of good options in the mid-sized tablet range, and if you're a fan of Samsung's designs, the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is among the best. Right now you can grab a refurbished black model off of eBay for $199.99, a full $200 off of the retail price. Of course, it's not quite the latest model (that would be the Galaxy Tab S, with its AMOLED screen), so most retailers have it discounted, but it's still a fantastic deal.

We've all been there. You see something on TV - be it a sports game, comedy show, or a cultish HBO series, and you think: "I have to show this to <PERSON>!" And then you open up your phone and are like "omg you have to watch <THING>, it's insane!" Then you get a reply "link?" and you don't have a link because seriously how do you link to a TV, this is not a magical utopia world where cable companies want you to be able to do things like that, especially as they happen.
