Sprint Announces LG G2 OTA Update (ZVE) Bringing HD Voice Enhancements, A Security Patch, And More

The G3 is LG's current flagship phone, but Sprint is pushing out an over-the-air update that shows some love to 2013's model, the G2, instead. This special delivery will bring in a number of general enhancements that some users may be happy to see. HD Voice is seeing improvements, and there are some LTE-related changes as well. These are joined by a security patch fixing something that's unspecified in the change log. All of this flies in under software version ZVE.

Even though this isn't a particularly massive update, there's still a chance it's going out in stages. That means there's not much you can do to get your hands on it aside from waiting for the notification to appear or pressing the update button and crossing your fingers.

Check Out Gmail 5.0 For Android And Google's Plan To Handle All Your Email Accounts In One App

Google's been updating apps left and right recently to fall in line with its new material design philosophy, and the results have been impressive. There are a few apps it appears Google's saving for the final Lollipop release though - Gmail 5.0 among them.

While we won't be distributing the updated Gmail app until the official update is released, we will be sharing a goody from the new onboarding process, which shows some of the new awesomeness coming to the app in its overhaul.

Specifically, it looks like Google's gearing up to handle all your email with Gmail, not just your Gmail account.

Google's My Tracks App Updated To Version 2.0.8, Includes Android Wear Support And Changes To Sharing

Google's walk/run tracker app, My Tracks, doesn't get updated terribly often, but when it does, there is usually something worth reporting. This most recent update is no exception, as it now offers Android Wear support and some changes to the way sharing works.

Unfortunately, Android Wear support does not mean that you can use the app on the watch alone, independent of the phone. Since Android Wear devices don't yet support GPS, it's basically impossible to have a functioning version of this app on a watch alone. Think of this, instead, as a very useful remote control. You can start, stop, and pause your walk or run, as well as view your progress, right from your watch without having to take your phone out of your pocket.

T-Mobile's Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition Receiving Update To Android 4.4.4

If you're an owner of an LTE Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition on T-Mobile (SM-P607T), today could be your lucky day. If you head on over to your tablet's settings and check for an update, you may just have a surprise waiting for you. According to Samsung, a new Android 4.4.4 update is available. This update is significant, not just for its Android version bump, but also because it means that an LTE variant of this tablet is getting said bump before its WiFi-only counterpart. Historically, this almost never happens in the US due to carrier involvement.

The new firmware build number is KTU84P.P607TUVUANI1.

Google's Nexus Player Hasn't Passed FCC Certification Yet, 'Out Of Inventory' On The US Play Store

Today was an extremely exciting day for Android fans. Besides brand new Lollipop preview images coming out, along with a new SDK and final APIs, some new hardware went up for pre-order. Specifically, the Nexus 9 and Nexus Player went up for sale ahead of launch, and the Nexus 6 listing was put up, but it's still not available to order just yet.

But a few hours ago, something curious happened. Google's Nexus Player got the dreaded "out of inventory" designation in the US Play Store. Many thought the device (for which Google is offering a $20 Play credit if you pre-order from the US or Canada) was simply sold out.

A Quick Look At Google Search 4.0 On The Android 5.0 Lollipop Developer Preview [APK Download/Instructions]

We've been waiting on a big update to Google's search app, having seen screenshots here and there that hinted at an updated design. With today's new Lollipop developer preview, the Google app's 4.0 incarnation was made available. We've got a download at the bottom of the post, but be sure to read the instructions first as getting this up and running on pre-L devices requires some extra fiddling. Also, you'll need to be rooted. Before that, though, let's do a quick walkthrough of the new design.

The first thing you'll undoubtedly notice in the revised Search app is the lighter, cleaner cards.

Verizon DROID Maxx, Mini, And Ultra All Receive OTA Software Update To Version 23.1.12

Last summer's trifecta of DROIDs are all getting hit by the same over-the-air update right about now. Verizon has announced a bump up to software version 23.1.12 that's going out to the DROID Maxx, Mini, and Ultra. The OTA prepares the devices to deliver better call quality through what the carrier has coined Advanced Calling 1.0.

This update also brings along improvements to the phones' messaging client and visual voicemail service. These touch-ups are joined by your usual vague set of bug fixes.

Carriers tend to push these updates out in waves these days, so try to sit tight until the notification arrives.

Samsung Announces That The AT&T Galaxy Note 8.0 Android 4.4.2 Update Is Finally Going Out To Devices

Jelly Bean seemed to stick around longer than other versions of Android. While most previous iterations were content to move along with each point release, Jelly Bean stuck around for 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3. It took quite a while for KitKat to arrive, and for some people, that wait has been longer than others.

If you purchased an AT&T Galaxy Note 8 back when it launched in 2013, you probably didn't think you would be stuck with Jelly Bean for this long. But it's true, Samsung has only just now gotten around to announcing its Android 4.4.2 update for the 8-inch tablet.

Rdio Android App Update Lets You Turn AAC Audio Quality All The Way Up To 320 Kbps

The cool kids like the quality of their music turned up all the way to 320 kbps (the coolest ones prefer lossless), but that's a luxury that often goes away with streaming music over the Internet. Rdio says it's had enough with that lower quality crap (I can't really tell the difference, but the cool kids tell me that stuff's awful), so it is bringing in the ability to stream and download songs at 320 kbps over both Wi-Fi and a cellular connection.

If you want to hit this level of quality, you will have to become a paying customer, which will cost $9.99 a month (lame, I know).

The former settings screen used to be a long list of every option that wasn't directly related to languages. A single category also existed for advanced settings, but everything else was piled into a single screen.
