Latest Pushbullet Update Now Lets You Initiate Texts From Your Computer As Well As Respond

They grow up so quickly. Just this summer, Pushbullet learned how to let its users respond to SMS messages via EvolveSMS. Then a few months later, it extended this functionality to all texting apps.

As long as you have the Pushbullet Android app and browser extension installed, you just need to click on the SMS tab to get started.

Sony Xperia Z2 And Z2 Tablet Update Adds PS4 Remote Play, Hi-Res Audio, Camera Apps, And More

Sony is very serious about giving PlayStation 4 owners the ability to play their console without actually playing with their consoles, so the company is expanding its remote play functionality to more devices. The required app hit the Play Store just last week, but it only worked for the Z3 line of devices. Now that's gradually changing.

Google Officially Introduces Gmail 5.0, And You Can Get It Here [APK Download]

The Gmail 5.0 APK was, for many users, the sweetest thing they tasted on Halloween. But that release was just a very thorough preview, a test build that was essentially complete. Now Google is officially rolling the stable version of the app into the Play Store.

What's New

The changes here are predominantly bug fixes, but there is at least one user-facing tweak. Gmail has traditionally displayed an image in the background whenever you load up an empty folder.

Google Inbox 1.1 Tweaks The Material Design Layout, Especially On Lollipop [APK Download]

Google Inbox has been available for only a week, and Google is already tweaking the Android app. Not much, of course - sweeping changes don't come that fast. But as with the recent updates to Newsstand and other apps, Google is getting a little more consistent with its Material Design standard. There don't appear to be any huge shifts in functionality in this update, though users with multiple email accounts will certainly appreciate at least one.

Latest BBM Update Lets You Retract Messages, Delete Chat Content After A Set Time, And More

There's a certain permanence to most instant messaging apps. The second you hit send, that's it, the message is out of your hands. You better hope you sent it to the right contact, fixed those embarrassing typos, or spelled their name correctly. Unless you're using the latest version of BBM, in which case you can call take backsies.

Now when you send a message by mistake, you can simply tap the retract button.

Google Admin has recently received its first update of the year. If you aren't the administrator for a Google for Work account, then there's nothing here for you to sink your teeth into. But there are a few new features here for people on the management side of things.
