Sony Releases PlayStation Messages To The Play Store, Decouples It From The PlayStation App

PlayStation gamers have access to a complementary Android app that allows them to send new game downloads to their console remotely, use as a second-screen on some titles, and get social with other PlayStation members. The latter feature has now been cut from the main app and is getting released as a standalone PlayStation Messages client.

Messages is actually better designed than the full app, with a clean Material layout to view your current and favorite chats, check your friends list, see what they're playing, and interact with everyone. You can send texts and voice messages, attach photos and themed stickers, brag about your progress and scores, and more.

[Deal Alert] ASUS ZenPad S 8 Tablet Is Down $30 On Amazon To $169 For The 2GB/32GB Version, $269 For The 4GB/64GB One

ASUS' ZenPad S 8 is one of the more interesting Android tablets on the market right now. That isn't a lot to say given how tablet releases seem to have stalled and become a second-thought for most manufacturers, but it doesn't detract from the S 8's nice specs. The tablet, which was released back in July exclusively on Best Buy, has an 8" IPS 2048x1536 display at a 4:3 aspect ratio, a 64-bit Intel Atom Z3530 processor, with a MicroSD slot, USB Type-C connector, Android 5.0, and it usually retails for a very acceptable $199 or $299 depending on the storage and camera configuration.

Android TV's Leanback Launcher Now Lets You Reorder Your Apps In Version 1.1.4 [APK Download]

Nexus Player owners are starting their week with plenty of goodies to enjoy. Yesterday saw the rollout of the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow factory images for their set-top box, and now its Leanback launcher is getting updated to a new version with a small but useful change: they can now re-order their apps!

Android TV launcher version 1.1.4 might not be live in the Play Store for everyone yet, but you can grab it from APK Mirror and install it on your Android TV device (regardless of whether or not it's running the new 6.0.1 Marshmallow update). Once you do, you can long-press on any app in the launcher, which then goes into a sokoban-like mode allowing you to move it and slide it into other positions on your app grid, and even delete it.

Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 OTA Rolls Out To More Android One Devices

Android One users are a lucky bunch. They usually buy their devices for very affordable prices and still get timely updates like Nexus phones. Android 6.0.1 isn't an exception to the rule, as Micromax A1 users are starting to see OTA update notifications pop up on their screens.

This isn't the first instance of 6.0.1 on Android One though. About 2 weeks ago, Philippines' Cherry Mobile G1 got the update over the air, and now the Micromax A1 is following suite. Nexus devices saw their factory images released yesterday, and One devices should expect the same features this little update brought: "Until next alarm" in the Do Not Disturb mode and most importantly plenty of new emojis.

Google Play Music Blasts Its Tunes To South Africa And Serbia

Google Play Music is a great way to listen to tunes from artists you love, whether it's by purchasing albums and tracks individually or subscribing to unlimited monthly streaming. It is, however, limited by the number of countries it's available in.

Residents in both countries can now buy albums and tracks in their regular currencies and subscribe to GPM Unlimited ($4.99 in Serbia and R49.99 in South Africa) with two free months offered up front so they can see if the service fits them or not.

[Update: Fixed In Android 6.0.1] Google Says The Nexus 9 LTE Works On Verizon—A Year Later, It Still Doesn't

If you go to the Google Store's Nexus 9 page, you'll see that it clearly shows Verizon compatibility for the tablet's LTE variant. The problem is that this claim simply isn't true. Last December, a thread was started on XDA regarding the issue, in which a few people showed that putting a Verizon SIM into the tablet made it exhibit some rather odd behavior. Specifically: it didn't work. Over a year after launch, there is still no fix. After some extensive testing, it appears this probably isn't Verizon's fault, but more likely a software or hardware issue that needs to be resolved by Google, HTC, or Qualcomm.
