It seemed like Google completely abandoned one of its most useful Android apps - Chrome to Phone, which I personally use almost every day, but an unexpected update that showed up in the Market today shows us they still care about it, even if only a little bit.

The new version 2.3 comes over a year after 2.2 hit the Market back in December 2010 and brings a few improvements, the most important one being a crash fix after receiving copied text.

The official Google TV Team's Twitter revealed earlier this evening that Sony has begun releasing an update for Google TV devices. Evidently, the update includes performance enhancements for Chrome (chiefly concerning start-up time), and the ability to watch 3D Blu-ray movies.

If you're the owner of a Sony GoogleTV, the ~260MB update should be automatically rolling out any time now, but just in case yours hasn't shown up yet, you can go to System Settings > About > System Updates and pull the update manually.

It has been two weeks since Android 4.0.3 started rolling out to the Transformer Prime, which made it the first tablet to officially receive the update. With a new version of Android, be it incremental or not, comes new and improved GApps, most of which we've already taken a close look at.

In Android 4.0.3, however, a new Gmail feature has been uncovered by ComputerWorld that is noticeably missing in its 4.0.2 brother: experiments.

If, like many LTE Galaxy Nexus users, you are frustrated by Verizon's choice to block Google Wallet from Samsung's hottest new device, and don't want to root just yet, XDA has some good news. It turns out that Google's standard Wallet APK can be installed on the Nexus' LTE variant without issue.

The news came after many rooted users reported issues using a flashable .zip file to get Google Wallet up and running.

Update: We've also got the images for the newest update to the Galaxy Nexus, Android 4.0.2:

An early version of the Ice Cream Sandwich ROM built by Samsung itself and complete with TouchWiz has been leaked today to the folks at SamMobile. They've quickly put together this video to demonstrate exactly what Samsung has been cooking up for the upcoming update - and that would be a whole lot of TouchWiz on top of the beautiful ICS UI we've been admiring so far:

Ever since I got the SGS II in the U.S., I don't mind TouchWiz as much (though those click sounds make me cringe every time), but it's kind of starting to look and feel old compared to Ice Cream Sandwich itself.

Google has started pushing out a new Market update with version 3.4.4, which upon quick inspection operates faster than before and brings a setting for auto-adding of widgets to your home screen.

If you missed the changes in the previous major update v3.3.11, read about them here. A minor update v3.3.12 is here.

Note that I did say widgets, not app icons, though according to early tests, it's still icons that are being added and not widgets.
