Is it the age of the smartwatch yet? I don't know, but developers are sure acting like it is. You can hardly turn around without seeing another new watch face or utility for Android Wear. Google still hasn't made it particularly easy to find new Wear apps, but we're keeping track of all the best new stuff, and here it is.

Google has seen fit to bestow upon us this evening Chrome Beta v41. This version of Chrome will add pull to refresh to almost all web pages. No more will there be wailing and gnashing of teeth due to the lack of an easily accessible refresh button. There's some other stuff too, but how 'bout that refresh?

If you've invested in a Sonos speaker system for your home, you have probably cursed the Sonos app on more than one occasion. It was vastly improved last spring, and now there's a new public beta that makes some welcome changes. According to Sonos, the new app is "A Little Bit Faster Now."

If you're going to watch local video files on your mobile device or Chromecast, Plex is one of the best ways to do it. This app relies on a server on your PC that transcodes almost any file and streams it to the app so you don't have to carry everything around.

According to software developer Randy Westergren, it has been possible to access customer information on Marriott's servers without a password since the Android app was released in 2011.

There's a v2.0 update to the Spotify app today, and it brings a few new features. It's maybe not as significant as you might expect from a v2.0 revision, but you're still looking at solid improvements. No, Chromecast support is not one of them. Sorry.
