Some OnePlus 5 owners report the phone reboots if you call 911

The OnePlus 5 offers a lot of features you don't usually see in a phone that costs under $500 like a dual camera, lightning fast fingerprint sensor, and a Snapdragon 835 SoC. However, owners of this phone say it may not be so good at one very basic and important feature—calling 911. Apparently the OnePlus 5 might reboot if you dial emergency services, which is a pretty serious problem.

Allo v14 includes improvements to the image editor, scrubber for audio clips, and much more [APK Teardown + Download]

Yesterday's update to Allo came with announcements that it now supports reactions (basically "likes") and that the doomed blobmoji are to be kept on life support in the form of a sticker pack. As meager an update as it might seem at first glance, it turns out that there are several other new features in this release. On top of that, a teardown shows quite a bit is in the works.

Hangouts Meet gets chat functionality, but Hangouts Chat is still unfinished

It's time for the next installment of "The Messaging Mess," an unintentional comedy series from Google. After focusing on Allo as a consumer messaging platform, Google has taken to removing features from Hangouts. At the same time, it's launched a pair of business-oriented Hangouts services known as Meet and Chat. However, only Meet is generally available. Starting today, Meet has chat, but it's not Hangouts Chat. It's all so simple.

Google announces Hire, a new G Suite recruiting app aimed at helping small businesses save on hiring costs

Finding a job can often be difficult, but more and more services have popped up over the years that have helped many (including me) find work. On the other end of the spectrum, it can also be difficult for employers to attract strong talent and fill positions (which boggles my mind, frankly). There are options for those companies to find new employees, but leave it to Google to come riding in to save the day. The company has announced Hire, a solution tightly integrated with G Suite, that is meant to help small and medium businesses save on hiring and interviewing costs.

[It lives!!!] Google Glass emerges from 2-year silence with new Enterprise Edition and wider availability to partners

What's that strange feeling? Almost like I've seen a ghost. Oh, Google Glass isn't dead after all? That'll be it. There have been recent signs that the seemingly abandoned experimental wearable might be making a return in one form or another, more than 2 years after the Glass Explorer Program officially ended. The first was an update to the MyGlass app last month, after lying dormant for nearly 3 years. This was followed the next day by a mysterious firmware update making its way to any Glass Explorer Edition units still in use. Google has confirmed that was regular maintenance to the consumer device, and not related to this fresh news about the Glass Enterprise Edition that Alphabet's experimental X subsidiary (formerly Google[x]) has been busy working on for the last two years.

Google Docs now supports Smart Text Selection in Android O [APK Download]

There were a number of small but interesting features of Android O (Oreo? Octopus??) that popped up at Google I/O back in May, and one of those was Smart Text Selection. I'm sure we've all been frustrated when trying to select text on our phones, and this feature intends to fix that by highlighting exactly what we need with a simple double tap. Now, Google Docs is implementing this feature and it should work for anybody currently running the Android O Beta.

[Deal Alert] B&H DealZone has the US unlocked Xperia X for $230

Unlike what B&H would like you to believe, the Sony Xperia X hasn't retailed for $399 in a long time. Actually, it's been hovering around the $300 mark since the end of 2016 and has recently dipped to and stayed at $250 on Amazon. However, if B&H wants to call this a DealZone deal, then we shall call it a DealZone deal, even if it's only $20 less than other stores.

Still, you shouldn't scoff at what you get with the Xperia X. You're looking at the North American unlocked variant, which is compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile (band 12 and all).

[Update: arm APK] YouTube for Android TV v2.0 brings a major redesign and finally allows autoplay to be turned off [APK Download]

Holy cow, there's an update to the YouTube for Android TV app! It has been a long time–fourteen months, to be precise–and judging by a major bump to the version number, this isn't just a bug fixer. In fact, it carries an entirely redesigned interface, not to mention a few functional changes, as well. This update probably doesn't address many of the requests users have had over the last year, but it's a great step forward and solves at least one major issue: Auto-play.
