YouTube Kids 1.40 Gets A New Winter Theme, Lets You Cater The Homescreen To Younger Or Older Kids, And More [APK Download]

Version 1.40 of YouTube Kids, Google's way of getting your children hooked on video clips from a young age, doesn't want any youngster missing out on what's going on outdoors. Encouraging them to look away from the screen would be too risky, so instead YouTube Kids now has a winter-themed homescreen. Look at the snow, and imagine the cold.

Photos v1.10 Adds An Optional Floating Shortcut To Camera Apps For Some Users [APK Download]

The Photos app saw a small bump to v1.10 yesterday (and a tiny bug fix today), but it seems most people will be hard pressed to find much in the way of changes. However, there seems to be one interesting feature popping up for a very small number of users. If the right circumstances are met, users will have an option to create a tiny floating shortcut to the Photos app over the screen of their camera apps. Yeah, it sounds pretty weird, but it would be useful for apps that don't offer a shortcut of their own.

Yahoo Brings Messenger Into The Modern Era With Likes, Unsending, Animated GIFs, Mass Photo Sharing, And More

It's easy to laugh at Yahoo. Other tech brands like Google, Amazon, Apple, and Microsoft have grown in prominence over the last ten years. But rather than improve, Yahoo has mostly just continued. It's still a giant presence. Millions of people use its services. It just doesn't grab headlines like the competition.

Well, Yahoo has now re-released one of its most widely known properties, Yahoo Messenger.

Outlook Developers Decide Maybe It's Nice To Have Quick Access Buttons At The Bottom, Like Gmail Used To

When it comes time to design an interface, there is a serious question to ask—are you a top or a bottom? Me, I'm a bottom. I find buttons much easier to access when they're at the bottom of the screen. Reaching towards the top, to me, is simply awkward.

In the latest version of Outlook, the developers must feel the same.

Viber 5.6.5 Lets You Delete Sent Messages From Both Ends Of A Conversation, Attach Files, And More

Viber is a free way to communicate with anyone else who has installed the app, which makes it easy to get sucked into a conversation and reveal information that you probably don't want floating around out there. Maybe you even go so far as to accidentally send the wrong message to the wrong person. No matter. The latest version of the Android app will let you remove a message from the devices of everyone in the conversation.

Chrome Dev 48 Rolls Out With Early Bluetooth Web API Support On Chrome OS Dev Channel And Android Marshmallow

Google's Chrome development team regularly implements new APIs to extend the possibilities for web apps to behave more like their native counterparts. The most recent addition to the Chrome dev channel allows web developers to use Bluetooth to communicate with nearby hardware. This could be used for things like an online fitness tracker that gets data from a heart rate monitor or for a controller to drive a Sphero, all without installing a native app.

These things are possible with the new Web Bluetooth API. Still in the early stages of development, this allows a web application to query for Bluetooth devices based on their capabilities, then pass messages back and forth with little or no friction.

Google Fit v1.55.44 Adds Run Mapping, Nutrition And Sleep Tracking, Audible Alerts, And Much More [APK Download + Teardown]

A very long-awaited update to Google Fit began rolling out earlier this week, but it seemed to focus almost entirely on improvements to the Wear micro-app while the main app was all but ignored. As it turns out, that was a mistake. A fresh update to the app started rolling out yesterday and it brings the rest of the features that were intended for this release – and what a list of features they are.

Note: Everything here was about to be part of a teardown, but the update stole that thunder.
