Yahoo Mail 5.1 Manages Your Gmail Accounts Too, Introduces Lots Of Improvements

Yahoo Mail received a pretty big update a couple of months ago with an interface revamp to Material Design (or Yahoo's interpretation of it), Account Key to sign in on your mobile device without having to input your password, and support for other mail providers like Outlook, Hotmail, and AOL. You may have noticed that Gmail wasn't present in that list, but that changes today.

Yahoo! is rolling out an update to version 5.1 of Mail that adds Gmail support so you can start checking your Googly inbox from Yahoo's app. I don't know why you'd want to do that, but I'm sure there are valid reasons why such a feature would be important.

Android 6.0.1 Finally Links Bluetooth And System Media Volume Settings, But It Breaks Volume Control On Many Headsets

Here's a good news / bad news kind of situation with the latest Android 6.0.1 update. In 2013, KitKat was supposed to link Bluetooth and System media controls allowing headsets, speakers, and car stereos to manage volume loudness on your phone. That never happened. Up until Android 6.0, if you were listening to audio through a Bluetooth-connected accessory, you had to control volume from your phone and the accessory separately. You could lower one, but the other would stay high, resulting in a medium volume. In order to completely lower or raise the volume, you had to do so from both, which wasn't practical at all.

[Update: Back In Stock] Snag A Sony SmartWatch 3 For Only 99.99 From Verizon Wireless

The SmartWatch 3 was never the most distinguished wristwatch. James Bond may carry around an Xperia phone, but not even Sony can get him to travel the world with so much plastic wrapped around his wrist.

Google Posts Android 6.0.1 Factory Images And Binaries For The Pixel C

Say what you will about the Pixel C, but it's an interesting piece of hardware and Google appears to be determined to give it the right treatment. During yesterday's Reddit AMA, the product team behind the premium tablet was asked if it would receive factory images in the same style as other Nexus devices. The answer was a definite yes. Today we see the team sticking to its word as the Android 6.0.1 factory images are now available, and despite the different product names, they appear on the same page as the Nexus lineup.

Since the Pixel C only hit the Google Store two days ago, it's safe to assume there won't be too many people putting the factory images to good use quite yet, but it's good to see they're available.

Play Movies & TV v3.10 Adds Notifications For Price Drops On Your Wishlist And Newly Available Content, Adds Toggle To Shut Off Binge-Watching [APK Download]

Wednesday was packed with an onslaught of app updates, many of which came with at least a few notable features. While a bit on the quiet side, the Play Movies & TV app came with some worthwhile new features of its own. Most of the new features are hidden under the Settings screen, including a toggle to finally shut off binge-watching on phones and tablets and a pair of options to enable notifications for new TV shows and when things on your Wishlist become available or drop in price. There are also a few other subtle differences behind the scenes.

What's New

Here's the official changelog for Play Movies & TV v3.10:

  • Wishlist any movie that's not yet available for purchase and receive notifications when it's available to buy or rent
  • More reliable playback
  • Settings improvements
  • Play Movies & TV channel in Android TV Live Channels app

Disable Binge-Watching

An update back in early October brought binge-watching, which filled in a popular feature for serious TV watchers.

Latest Version Of Android Wear Brings Back Watch Battery Stats [APK Download]

Google removed the watch battery stats from the Wear app some time ago, but it wasn't really much of a loss. They were borderline useless at the time anyway. In the latest version of Wear (1.4.0.2470307.gms), the battery stats appear to have returned. As to whether or not they're still junk, I cannot say yet.

Yahoo Video Guide Is One More TV App You Can Install To Manage All Of Your Other Ones

Remember cable? It sucked. You had to deal with commercials, and you could only watch what the network decided you should watch. It was a nightmare that many of us couldn't wait to — oh, some of you still have it? Oh, you like it? But... but why?

Anyways, times have greatly improved for cord cutters. There's YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant Video, Crackle, HBO Now, Showtime, Google Play, Watch ABC, CBS, Comedy Central, PBS, and so many other options for streaming video.

The downside? We have to keep up with what's available where. This conundrum has led to the proliferation of TV guide-ish apps that will tell you what's playing on which services (oh how things have come full circle).
