Instagram adds one-finger zoom to Stories, much like Snapchat did a while ago

Instagram's Stories is a blatant copy of Snapchat Stories, so it's not really a huge surprise to see another feature carried over. In this update, Instagram is getting one-finger zoom - simply hold the record button and slide your finger up or down to zoom. Wonder where they got that idea from?

WHAT'S NEW

  • We have a few improvements to Instagram Stories!
  • Zoom with one hand as you're recording a video. Slide your finger up while holding the video record button.
  • Lots of bug fixes and improvements to make stories even better (and faster).

There's not really much more to say on this, other than in practice it works well.

Hyundai's DIY Android Auto update system expanded to four new cars, including the Sonata Hybrid and Veloster

It must be nice to have a car with a media system that can be updated - some of us are lucky just to get Bluetooth.

Owners of the 2016 Sonata Hybrid (standard and plug-in), 2016 Veloster, and 2015/2016 Azera can now get some sweet, sweet Android Auto action with a download and a bit of legwork.

Exclusive: Manual exposure control is coming back to Google's Camera app

One of the coolest additions to the camera in the Android 7.0 developer preview was an option to manually adjust the exposure in the camera app. It's not as if that's a groundbreaking feature - plenty of third-party apps and manufacturer skins offered the same thing - but it's nice to get it in stock. The manual exposure option has disappeared in some of the later preview builds, but there's good news: it's coming back.

ASUS ZenFone Zoom and ZenFone Selfie start getting Android Marshmallow OTA

ASUS is working hard to meet its self-imposed deadline of upgrading several ZenFone devices to Marshmallow before the end of Q2 2016. We're technically in July and Q3 already, but we'll give the company a little leeway for almost-making it on time with these two new OTAs.

After the ZenFone Max and a couple of variants of the ZenFone 2 Laser, ASUS is now starting to roll out Android 6.0 Marshmallow to the ZenFone Zoom (ZX551KL) and ZenFone Selfie (ZD551KL).

The ZenFone Zoom is moving to firmware version 4.21.40.74 while the Zenfone Selfie is going up to 21.40.0.1692. Both devices are shedding a lot of preloaded apps (read: bloat) and gaining a couple of new apps from Google and/or Facebook.

That limit is changing. Twitter is bumping up the max length of a video up from half a minute to 140 seconds.

The first Android phone to get AT&T's Wi-Fi calling feature is... the LG G4, for some reason

Far be it from humble Android bloggers to tell a multi-billion-dollar telecom corporation what to do with its nigh-infinite resources. But when you're rolling out something that your competitors have offered for some time, it's usually prudent to make it available to as many people as possible. That doesn't seem to be the case for AT&T's Wi-Fi calling feature. The first phone to get it is the Galaxy S7... no, wait, sorry, I made a mistake. That's the choice that would make sense. The first phone to get AT&T Wi-Fi calling is the LG G4.

[Update: June OTA Does Not Contain Fix] Some Pixel C Owners Are Reporting Random Reboots After The May Over-The-Air Update

Google's commitment to Android in the form of monthly updates for its own branded hardware is pretty great... until it's not. That's the case with the May security and stability update for the top-of-the-line Pixel C tablet, which has created some serious headaches for owners. Some (but by no means all) owners of the Pixel C are reporting more or less random reboots of the tablet, usually occurring every five to thirty minutes when the Pixel C is off its charger.
