[Update: Changelog] Google Play Music Update 5.3.1316M Adds SD Card Downloads And New Sharing Options [APK Download]

Version 5.3 of the Google Play Music app is flying out to Android devices right now, bringing with it... not a lot, actually. A quick look inside reveals bolded "Listen Now" text in the slide-out menu, a version update to 5.3.1316M, and not much else. But as usual, our hyper-intelligent cloud of futuristic swarming nanobots is pouring over the APK file, and there's plenty to be excited about.

What's New?

Update: Commenter Nick Saulino spotted what we didn't: there is indeed an option to save downloaded music to the SD card or internal storage. The option doesn't appear if your device has no external storage.

[New Game] DotEmu's Double Dragon Trilogy Hits Android With Mobile-Optimized Gameplay, A Remastered Soundtrack, And More

Gamers of a certain age probably spent at least a few hours (or years) of their lives submerged in the original Double Dragon games. These side-scrolling beat-em-ups have stood the test of time, but emulators are so messy, right? DotEmu, a developer with plenty of experience porting classic games to mobile, has followed through on its promise to bring the Double Dragon Trilogy to Android as a single download.

[Bug Watch] Nexus 4 And Nexus 5 Suffer From Extremely Low Sound Levels On Headset Mics, Fix Coming Soon

We all use our smartphones differently. Some people rely on them for web browsing and apps, some for texting, and many of us still resort to making calls, you know, when we have to. Even within those categories, several patterns emerge and certain habits and practices have been developed. Many of us have long since abandoned using wired headsets for calling, but a lot of people still prefer them to keeping Bluetooth headsets charged or holding a 5-inch phone against an ear. Unfortunately, these simple wired accessories can also be plagued by bugs like anything else, and both the Nexus 4 and 5 seem to suffer from a pretty big one.

Google Rolls Out Previously Announced App Indexing Functionality, Improves App Discovery In Search Results

Back on the Nexus 5's launch day, Google announced an upcoming feature that would make it easier to open search results directly inside of relevant apps, rather than within a web browser. You'd be forgiven for missing this announcement, given everything else that was going on that day. This new functionality, known as app indexing, places an Open in app button next to search results that contains information better suited for perusing inside an app. The functionality's now rolling out to the Google Search app as well as mobile web browsers.

It's also now easier to find new apps as well.

Play Movies Update Lets Users Save HD Videos In A Lower Resolution, Helps Recover Storage Space And Speed Up Downloads

If your phone has a large 5-inch screen, you own an Android tablet, or your HDTV has a Chromecast plugged into it, it would make sense to splurge on the HD version of the next movie you buy from Google Play. It's like getting two movies for the price of one, really, as you can still stream the video in SD if Internet speeds aren't quite up to snuff. But until now, users have only been able to download the larger version of any HD content they wanted to pin to a device. Now you're given a choice.

What's new:

  • Get your content offline faster - now HD movies and shows may be downloaded in HD or SD.

So you're trying to choose between a new Altima and a Civic for your next car. Naturally you Google them both to check out their specifications and features. But it turns out that you can get most of the important numbers without clicking on a single link. Today Google pulled the wraps off of a new addition to Search's Knowledge Graph both on the web and on mobile: car stats.

2013-12-04 17.54.51 f150

Search for a car make, model, and year, and you can get the basic information in a pop-up card or side column, including MSRP, horsepower, city and highway MPG, and various engine, trim, and option levels.
