Every now and then, we all can't quite make out what somebody just said. Sometimes, you fill in the blanks with whatever it is you've been thinking about. If Amazon's Alexa works the same way, this video will really make you wonder what's been on her mind. Read More
Google has added a few entertaining Easter eggs to Google Assistant since its release, including fully interactive quiz games. In the spirit of the season, a few new holiday-related commands have made their way to Google Assistant. Read More
Welcome back. Last we gathered here, the Pixel phones were only a rumor and Google's Home invasion had only just appeared at Google I/O.
In the time since, letters have continued to pour into the Android Police inbox. As always, the only purpose we can find in some of that correspondence is to put a smile on your face. Let us know in the comments if they do. Read More
Much has changed since the last installment of the Android Police Files. The 5X and 6P are the latest Nexus devices. We know a great deal about Android N. Google's founders formed a new company and made Google a subsidiary.
But one thing hasn't changed — we still get some hilarious emails. Here's your latest glimpse at some of the more absurd corners of the Android Police inbox. Read More
If you're a Game Of Thrones fan, you're likely well aware of the "hold the door" meme that has transfixed a good portion of the internet for the last couple of weeks. Kickstarter, too, it seems, is engrossed with the series' doorstopper of a storyline, as their latest changelog takes "Bug fixes and performance improvements" to a whole new level. Read More
We've all mocked it plnety of times. We laughed at its silly mitsakes. We got annoyed when it sent the wrong words and put us in awkwrad situations with our boss or partner. We even blamed it for our own typos and inapporpriate messages when the recipient wasn't so welcoming of them. We ducking hated the living duck out of it when it stopped us from showing our ducking rage while typing a message and replaced it with ducking innocuous words. We witched about it at the top of our lungs. But have you ever stopped to think what Autocorerct thinks about us? Read More
Sure, Tumblr has seen better days. But for the Tumblr app, this could be a high watermark. I'm not sure what exactly their dev team was up to in the latest, presumably minor, update to their Android app. What I do know is that the jump from v4.7 to v4.8 brought with it the kind of changelog that should brighten your mood.
If you were worried about Android Marshmallow compatibility, don't worry; this update is already prepared for Tangerine. If you thought the underbelly had been neglected, once again your concerns have been addressed because Tumblr reports that the underbelly has been tickled. Read More
Any time we talk about a service that lets you watch other people play games, some folks who still don't seem to understand the appeal behind watching games as opposed to playing them inevitably show up in the comments. There is a reason Amazon acquired Twitch for close to $1bln and Google's recently released YouTube Gaming app has already racked up over 100,000 downloads.
Loading Artist's latest comic (not considering Single Player that was posted outside of the regular schedule) attempts to explain this reason in a way these people may understand: Read More
Longtime readers of the Android Police Files will know that a couple things never change. Someone always mistakes us for the police. Someone else thinks we can fix any and all software-related problems. But then there's always a person that asks a question we never expect.
Here is the latest batch of letters. You tell us which are which.
You can't. At least, not yet anyway. Such talk remains a rumor for now. But you're not entirely out of luck. Here's a simple process.
