Latest Microsoft Office For Android Updates Bring Easier Sign-In, Reduced App Size, Cloud Font Support, And More

Microsoft Office is available for Android. No, this isn't new news, but considering how unlikely that seemed not many years ago, it's nice to reflect every now and then. Anyways, an update has rolled out for the full suite of Office apps. Word and Excel now come in smaller packages, with Microsoft boasting a 50% reduction in size.

[APK Download] Google Sheets Gets Better Zooming, Filter Viewing, And Special Pasting—Slides And Docs Get Subscript And Superscript Formatting

Updates to Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides tend to travel in groups. They're timid that way. Few of them are bold enough to jump out at you directly. But taken together, they're worth a look.

Sheets brings the bulk of the changes. Google's spreadsheet app will now show you more content when you zoom in and out of a spreadsheet. The toolbars will disappear and reappear as needed. And while you're taking a look at things, you can now view filters that were created on the web.

Then once you start tweaking a document, Sheets' paste special option will also let you copy content and paste only associated values, formula, data validation, and other formatting.

Latest Skype Update Lets You Apply Filters To Video Messages

Sending a Skype video message is like placing a video call, only instead of having to be online at the same time, the person on the other end can pick up whenever, the conversation is completely one-sided, and the entire affair is limited to a couple of minutes. Following the latest update to the Android app, you can now spice up those short clips by applying filters. Add in balloons, warp your face, turn things negative—that sort of thing.

To apply any of the effects, hit the icon in the bottom left while recording a message. Since we're approaching the end of October, Skype has also included a few Halloween-related options and emoticons.

BetterBatteryStats v2.1 Comes With Android Marshmallow Support And Various Other Tweaks

Do you care how much battery life your phone has? No, do you really care? You have a spreadsheet set up in Google Slides documenting your experience over the past few weeks. You can recall at a whim the amount of screen on time you've experienced on every Android device you've owned since Gingerbread. You don't get mad at your hardware when it dies at 4PM—you blame those wakelocking S.O.B apps.

Chrome Beta 47 Can Show Splash Screens For Web Apps Launched From The Home Screen, Display A Snackbar When Downloads Are Complete, And More

Browsers are a core part of the mobile phone experience, but I don't find them particularly exciting. I do with my browser largely what I did ten years ago: open it up, go to a URL, and scroll through the page that appears. I don't really use bookmarks or search predictions, though combining the search and location bars together was pretty nice. Custom search engines are fun too.

I say this to convey my general apathy towards covering the updates that come to web browsers. But the latest beta version of Chrome comes with changes that even folks like me will have a hard time ignoring—things we've already highlighted before when they appeared in Chrome Dev, such as a snackbar that now appears at the bottom of the screen when you complete a download.

Twitter Introduces Option To Embed Basic Two-Choice Polls In Your Tweets

Twitter opinions are a dime a dozen. Actually, no, they're much cheaper than that. People give them out for free. Let something happen, online or off, and someone will take to Twitter to offer their two cents.

But that doesn't stop people from tweeting out questions. Understandably, sometimes you want to get a gauge of how your followers feel in particular. Thing is, most people will overlook that tweet, and you're mostly likely to get feedback from the folks who care the most, negatively or positively.

Now Twitter is rolling out the ability to tweet polls, increasing your likelihood of getting engagement from the more passive among us.

Sonos Adds Amazon Prime Music Compatibility In The Latest Software Update

Sonos has become the de facto standard for multi-room audio systems, despite the fact that there are now several cheaper (if not better) alternatives. Today it becomes a little better still: those who use Amazon's Prime Music (which is included as a freebie if you've subscribed to Amazon Prime for the free shipping or other benefits) can now stream music directly from the Sonos system. The feature is currently in beta, according to the official Sonos company blog.

Oddly, this isn't the first time that Amazon Music and Sonos have crossed paths, just the first time it's been available specifically for the Prime section of the service.

HERE For Android's Route Sharing Feature Arrives In Latest Stable Update, Brings Surfer Dude Voice Along For The Ride

Last month HERE showed off its upcoming route sharing feature, which lets users send others the route they're taking to get to a destination. This way you can answer "How are you getting here?" without having to go through the effort of explaining. Tapping the standard share button and having the question-asking-person read the plain text that appears on his or her phone, or open the instructions inside HERE, should be much less of a headache.

Now you no longer have to be in the beta program to try out the feature. The stable version of the app is getting the goods in the newest update.
