It's part of a non-public beta in the Play Store, but we've gotten a look at the app. You can think of it as a group messaging app, but more focused.

Making It Mine: Galaxy S7 Edge (Video)

Gather ‘round, gather ‘round! The time has come to answer the age old question: What’s on your phone? I get this question A LOT, but I don’t answer it often since it changes so much. I thought I’d take a bit of a spin on it and also show you what I did to make a particular device (in this case the S7 Edge) really feel like my own. I’m convinced there’s a metric here. For now, I’ll call it the ‘make it work’ factor. This comes from my days living in NYC.

Samsung's 'Good Lock' App Brings A Crazy Alternative UI To Your GS7's Lock Screen, Notifications, And Quick Settings

The design of Samsung's system UI hasn't changed much in the last few years, except when it comes to cosmetic things like icons and colors. There's a whole theme store that can alter that stuff. In the Galaxy Apps store, there's a new app called Good Lock that goes further by enabling an "advanced system UI" on the Galaxy S7. It's really bonkers.

Google Bumps Chromecast App To v1.14 With Promised 'Google Cast' Rebrand And Better Support For Some Cast-Enabled Devices [APK Download]

The Chromecast was just the start of Google's growing list of Cast-enabled devices, so it came as little surprise when Google announced the Chromecast app would be taking on a more inclusive name. It's now Google Cast in v1.14, and you can grab it from APK Mirror. It also looks like the app shows your other Cast devices, which would make sense given the name change.

Apple Music Updated With A Widget, Better Playlist Management, And More

Somewhere on the Apple campus—presumably in a dark, musty basement—there are several Android developers who are tasked with supporting the Apple Music Android app. I bet the other Apple employees call them names and throw things at them in the halls.
