[Android M Feature Spotlight] Stock Android Now Appears To Support rSAP For "Premium" Bluetooth In Some Vehicles

If you have a vehicle with "enhanced" or "premium" Bluetooth support, your Android phone may or may not have supported that protocol, known as rSAP, to date. If you had a Nexus handset, it definitely didn't (unless you used some kind of root rSAP profile solution), because the functionality wasn't built into the Android OS. rSAP, for the record, allows you to connect your vehicle to a mobile network over Bluetooth using your phone's SIM card to authenticate against, allowing things like in-car Wi-Fi hotspots, connectivity to in-car apps requiring mobile data, and potentially other features depending on the brand of car.

Well, if you own an Amazon Fire TV, you can now add GameFly to this list.

The GameFly streaming service derives from the company's acquisition of Playcast. A look at the latter's website gives you an idea of what you can expect from the experience, as the interface matches the one Amazon has shown off alongside the GameFly Streaming app already uploaded to its app store.

Motorola Offers Atrix HD Owners $100 Off A Moto X To Apologize For Dropping Update Support

The Atrix HD came out in 2012, right before Motorola's Google-fueled turnaround. That's why it was surprising when Motorola put this phone on the KitKat update list in late 2013. That update never came through, leaving the device on Android 4.1.1, but Motorola is offering a deal on a new Moto X to make up for that.

[Android M Feature Spotlight] Volume Controls Provide Quick Access To Individual Ringtone, Media, And Alarm Volume Again

The Lollipop update attached all the priority notification settings to the volume dialog, but you might recall most of that is gone. There's a little bit of Do Not Disturb in the Android M volume toggle, but more important is the improved access to individual volumes.
