An Exclusive Early Look At Hangouts 4.0

Back in September, Hangouts switched from gray to green in its 2.3 update, ostensibly making the first baby steps on its journey toward joining Google's material design parade. Then in December we first spied a slightly more material version of the app. Now, users are running version 3.3 and many aren't satisfied with the app's layouts or structure. Things like the seemingly unnecessary contacts tab, the somewhat messy drawer, and the non-standard toolbar are common complaints.

It looks like Google is working on fixing a lot of issues with an upcoming update to Hangouts 4.0 though. We've heard rumblings from Reddit of the new update, and now we've got an early look at the app.

Rumor: Razer Is Looking To Buy Struggling OUYA To Bolster Its Android Gaming Efforts

There hasn't been much news out of OUYA for the last year or so, and Razer's first effort at mobile hardware, the Android TV-powered Forge TV, hasn't exactly been lighting the world on fire either. Would combining forces make either of these products better? Probably not. But according to a recent post on TechCrunch, at least someone thinks it might be a good idea.

TechCrunch reports that premium game accessory maker Razer is interested in purchasing OUYA, or at least what's left of it now that the "mini console" fad has come and gone. OUYA has tried numerous strategies to gain back the excitement of its initial Kickstarter campaign, including the addition of a subscription service and farming out its game library to competitors like MadCatz.

Opera For Android Updated With Speed Dial Syncing And Native Text Selection In Version 30

About three weeks ago the beta version of Opera for Android added a handful of new features. Today most of them graduate to the standard version, marked as v30.0.1856 on my phone. The biggest change (at least according to Opera's official blog) is that the sites saved to the "speed dial" homepage will sync across Android and desktop versions of Opera. That's provided, of course, that you're logged into your Opera account on all devices. If you prefer different Speed Dial options for mobile and desktop, that's an option too.

Perhaps more notable from a technical standpoint is an upgrade to the Chromium 43 rendering engine.

Neo Smartpen N2 Review: A Sleek, Viable Option For Making Your Notes Digital Without Ditching Pen And Paper

The Neo Smartpen N2 is the company's second shot at an intelligent analog writer and this one comes with very few compromises. In a market without a whole lot of competition, especially for those who support Android, Neo's N2 needs to be on your radar if you want a smartpen. I've been testing it out for a couple of weeks and, on the whole, I am really excited about it. With that said, it does have a few drawbacks that you will want to think through before deciding to buy.

This is the second smartpen I've reviewed for Android Police. The first is the Livescribe 3, whose review you can see here.

[Update: Winners] Win One Of TYLT's New 4.8 Amp RIBBN Car Chargers From TYLT And Android Police

Look, there isn't much exciting about car chargers that we haven't already seen before. I get it. But you know what? There's always a way to take something that's existed for a while and make it better, which is precisely what TYLT has done with its newest car charger, RIBBN.

If you've ever seen another TYLT car charger before, then RIBBN probably looks familiar to you - it's aesthetically very similar to the company's existing charger, BAND. But that's pretty much where the similarities end, because RIBBN is like BAND on steroids. It's a dual-port 4.8 Amp charger that can make easy work of charging two devices at once, all while providing the full power required to quickly charge both simultaneously.

Huawei Watch Reportedly Delayed Until Late Q3 Or Early Q4

A new report claims that Huawei has pushed back the release of the Huawei Watch until September or October. Of course, there was never an official launch date for the watch, but that's much later than everyone was expecting. The reason cited in the report for the delay is "incompatibility issues with Android Wear." That could mean any number of things.
