It's hard to imagine writing about Allo without talking about stickers, and as the title suggests, this post isn't going to change that. Version 17 just started rolling out, but it looks to be basically the same on the surface. At least no significant changes have turned up for me. However, a teardown of the apk shows that there are even more sticker-related improvements on the horizon.

Photos v3.3 cleans up notification options on the settings screen [APK Download + Teardown]

A new version of Google Photos is rolling out to users today. Noticeable changes seem to be pretty scarce in both this release and the previous v3.2 update, or at least we haven't seen much in the way of differences. However, between the two, there are a few things to talk about. Today's update brings a little cleanup work to the Settings screen by grouping notification options together, as well multi-selection support in the shared libraries screen. There are also clues about a new themed video creation, enhanced rules for auto-saving shared photos, and some cost-saving measures for Airtel subscribers in India.

Walmart employees get a new app to manage their shifts and schedules

I've just discovered that Walmart has over 4600 stores in the US and 11600 stores worldwide, it also employs more than 2.3M people worldwide. Whoa. If you're one of these and you usually struggle to keep tabs on your shifts and schedules, then there's a new app for you on the Play Store. It's still marked as "unreleased," which means it's in beta and could be filled with bugs... It might also be perfectly usable, you'll just have to try it out to see.

My Walmart Schedule is aimed at both associates and managers. (Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems that by "associates," Walmart is just using a fancy way of saying regular employee.) It lets associates see their current schedule, claim unassigned shifts, and keep an eye on their holiday balance and time off.

A teardown of the APK brings to light some new features for at a glance visibility of travel information and storing search results and web pages for later use, plus a few follow-ups for topics we've seen before.
