Android Auto v2.5 prepares to offer navigation cards based on your calendar appointments [APK Teardown]

A fresh update to the Android Auto app began rolling out yesterday, but it doesn't appear to include any notable changes to the interface on either the phone or in the car. But that doesn't mean this update is just for bug fixes, there isn't something interesting floating around inside the apk that can only be seen through the lens of a teardown. We can look forward to at least one important new feature: Auto will soon get to use our calendar appointments to suggest directions when we're on the way to a destination. As always, grab the apk from the link at the bottom if you don't have it on your phone already.

YouTube v12.29 includes hints about location-specific search [APK Teardown]

YouTube is a fantastic tool for learning about the world around us, but sometimes it's easy to forget that there are great things happening in our own backyard. A teardown of the latest update suggests we might soon have the option to add geography to our search criteria. This should make it a bit easier to separate videos about Alaska from the recipes for Alaskan King Crab, music videos, and whatever else people might associate with the name. I'll also mention a couple of smaller changes to the interface in this version, but they're not really important, so feel free to skip straight to the teardown.

Telegram 4.2 brings self-destructing media, profile bios, and more

I think by now that all of you should know how much I like Telegram and respect it as a platform. It's my messaging service of choice (though there are a few stragglers in my contacts list that still use SMS or Hangouts). Today brings the app to v4.2, which has a few new features worth noting.

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.

[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.
