ARCore, Google's answer to ARKit, adds augmented reality to millions of devices, starting today

Those of you who follow Google's augmented reality adventures will probably know of the Lenovo Phab2 Pro (which hilariously isn't getting Nougat) and the ASUS ZenFone AR - both rather bulky phones with complicated-looking camera arrangements on the back. But ARCore is something a bit different; it aims to bring augmented reality to phones that the general public uses, starting today.

YouTube's Picture-in-Picture mode in Oreo is only available to paying Red customers in five countries, and that's a problem

One of Android 8.0 Oreo's biggest features is picture-in-picture (PiP) mode, and given YouTube's status as the most popular video-sharing platform in the world, you'd be forgiven for thinking that quite a bit of PiP use would be for YouTube. Unfortunately, you'd also be wrong, as Google has made it very difficult for people to actually use picture-in-picture mode.

[Deal Alert] Get a Chromecast Ultra for $59 ($10 off) at Google Store, Best Buy, and more

Google doesn't offer discounts on its products very often (aside from the Google Home, which seems to be on sale quite a bit), but a Chromecast Ultra deal has just gone live. This is the very same deal that we saw back in June and in February, and while a $10 discount isn't anything astronomical, it's a nice incentive to grab Google's premium Chromecast if you don't already have one.

Unofficial web wrapper for Allo desktop client now available for Windows and Mac

Almost a year after the app's initial release, Google updated Allo to work with a desktop client earlier this month. Like WhatsApp, the desktop app runs in your browser, and uses your phone as a proxy to send/receive messages. But for some strange reason, the app is currently limited to Chrome users. If you don't use Chrome, or simply don't want to keep an Allo tab open 24/7, this unofficial web wrapper might be for you.

Modified Pixel Launcher for all devices hits version 2.1, brings new Oreo features and much more

Google has a habit of keeping its launchers exclusive for its own hardware line. The Google Now Launcher was exclusive to the Nexus 5 for quite some time, and the Pixel Launcher is still only available on the Play Store to Pixel devices. Yes, installing the APK off sites like APK Mirror was an option, but not all of the features were intact.

However, us enthusiasts have a habit of getting our way with these things. The modified Pixel Launcher APK that we wrote about two months ago has now hit version 2.1, and it brings a ton of new things.

Thanks to a tweet from famed leaker Evan Blass, we now know that both Pixel 2 models will use the Snapdragon 836, and they'll be unveiled on October 5th.
