Photos v3.3 cleans up notification options on the settings screen [APK Download + Teardown]

However, Netflix's downloading functionality comes with a nasty catch that many people have just recently started running into: some content can only be downloaded a certain number of times. The worst part is Netflix doesn't tell you about that until you're almost out of downloads.

Play Movies & TV v3.26 adds Picture-in-Picture support for Android O [APK Download]

When Google first started releasing developer previews of new Android versions a few years ago, it was pretty rare to see any of the apps adopting new APIs until the new version was finalized.
