[Update: Live in beta for everyone] WhatsApp is testing colorful text status updates similar to Facebook's

You know how all of a sudden your Facebook feed started filling up with status updates that had colorful backgrounds? That might soon start happening on WhatsApp. The feature, which started rolling out to Facebook's Android users late last year then spread to other platforms a couple of months ago, is now being tested in WhatsApp's new status screen. Perhaps WhatsApp hopes it will convince people to start using those new statuses more - 99% of my friends don't bother with them and I've heard the same from lots of people.

Android Oreo feature spotlight: Task Snapshots allow for higher quality, more accurate overview thumbnails

After months of living with the developer preview, we've got a pretty good handle on what's in Android 8.0 Oreo. Still, some surprises are lurking inside.

The catch, however, is that apps need to be updated with this feature in mind. LastPass is already readying Oreo support, and you can check it out now in the new public beta.

Hell has officially frozen over, Taito just released a premium Bust-A-Move game on the Play Store

I thought I would never see the day. There's an official Bust-A-Move game from Taito Corporation on the Play Store, and it's a premium release.
