Forget about those damn Pixel 2 phones. Did you get a shiny new Galaxy Note8 and were you itching to install a custom recovery just so you can make your life easier with custom ROMs and flashing various things on it? Then you want TWRP and TWRP is delivering. Well, at least for the Exynos version. Qualcomm variants need not apply, yet.
You can grab TWRP for the Exynos Galaxy Note8 (greatlte), but it's not the only device that's added TWRP support recently. Also on the list are the Xiaomi Redmi 3S/Prime/3X (land), the Xiaomi Redmi 4A (rolex), the ZUK Edge (z2x), (update) and the Elephone P9000 (p9000). Read More
Ever since the Google Home was first released last year, you could use voice commands to start media playback on a Chromecast-enabled TV or speaker. For example, you could use commands like "Play The Office on the living room TV" or "play music from Coldplay on the kitchen speaker." Now Google is making that slightly easier, with the ability to pick a preferred device for media playback. Read More
It has been slightly over a year since Google Assistant first became widely available, as part of the Google Allo messenger app. It definitely had growing pains, but fast forward to today, and it's a pretty darn good product. At Google's press event today, the company announced a handful of new Assistant features for both users and developers. Read More
Google's new Pixelbook looks kinda slick. I think the chances are pretty high that I'm going to grab one. At least, if the keyboard on it is any good. But there are a lot of places to pre-order the new Chromebook up outside the Google Play store. For your convenience (and mine, later) we've put together some of the spots you can pick it up into a nice little list. Read More
At its San Francisco event today, Google unveiled a bunch of new products, including the Home Mini.

Don't worry; here's a list of all the retailers we've found that are selling Google's new tech-filled hockey puck. Read More

An update to the Google app hit the beta channel yesterday and it brings back the Notification toggles for Assistant devices that had briefly appeared a few months ago. Also in tow are some visual tweaks and a revised list of the types of devices certain Assistant features work with. A teardown also turns up new commute settings, a few bits about getting your kids set up with Google Assistant and Home, and a pretty cool feature for the newly announced Pixel Buds. Read More
I'll be honest, I'm having trouble keeping track of the distinction Google seems to be trying to make between "Apps for the Google Assistant," "Actions on Google," and the Google Assistant.
