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.

Inbox v1.51 gets ready to sort high priority emails to the top and add reminders about unfinished email chains [APK Teardown]

Yesterday's teardown of Gmail brought news that the app would soon include some of the useful sorting methods over from the web client, giving users a way to see messages that might be the most important to them. Not to be left out of the fun, the latest update to Inbox reveals it has a couple new tricks of its own. Of course, we're talking about Inbox, so these upcoming features are driven by artificial intelligence and mountains of data about the types of messages that matter most to users.

[Deal Alert] This hosts file modifier is free on the Play Store right now, and it doesn't need root

If you do any kind of web development work, you've probably had to modify your computer's hosts file from time to time. If you're not familiar with it, the hosts file is a list of IP addresses and their assigned hostnames. Modifying the actual hosts file on Android requires root access, but this tool uses Android's VPN API to achieve the same functionality. And for the next week, it's free on the Play Store.

Gmail v7.7 prepares to add sorting types to place starred, important, or unread email at the top of your inbox [APK Teardown]

Gmail's web interface is massively customizable and offers an assortment of features to fit the preferences of almost any user. The same can't really be said about the mobile app. It's not that we need or should even have the same breadth of options, but there are certainly a few things that belong on both platforms. The latest update to Gmail's Android app reveals that it will soon offer the same inbox sorting methods that are currently offered on the web.

While phones weren't left out entirely, the only notable addition is a new app shortcut for handsets running Nougat and above.

With nothing better to do, Hangouts v21 adds five new emoticon message shortcodes [APK Download]

Do you find yourself thinking Google Hangouts would be perfect if it only had a few more secret shortcodes to make emoticon art? No, I didn't think so. I guess that means today's update to Hangouts probably won't convince anybody that it has hit the pinnacle of excellence; but it will give us five more easter egg phrases, if that helps.
