Hey guys, good news – remember the little trick to get access to Facebook Messenger's sticker feature? (If you've already forgotten about it, you may need to see a doctor. We just told you about it yesterday.) Well, that whole "hit the tiny invisible area beside the plus sign" is a thing of the past. Facebook Messenger was just updated with official support for those funky fatheads that apparently everyone loves.

Looks like Verizon's on a roll – two OTAs in the same day! Earlier today, it updated the support docs for the original Stratosphere with details of an upcoming incremental update, and now it looks like Jelly Bean is getting ready to hit the airwaves on its way to the LG Spectrum 2.

Aside from Jelly Bean goodies, the update also packs a few fixes and tweaks:

+ Weather application and widget have been updated
+ NFC LG Tag+ help has been improved
+ Brightness option has been moved to notification panel for global access
+ Browser now loads Google account bookmarks
+ Improved readability for email conversation
+ Optimized Bluetooth® connect/disconnect and audio stream switching implementations
+ User can back up contacts when the SIM is swapped to a new device
+ Preloaded widgets including Social+, Today+, Finance, News and Power Control have been removed

Once Big Red updates its support docs, that usually means an OTA is imminent – this one should likely start heading out sometime this week.

Hey Stratosphere owners – think Verizon forgot about you? That doesn't seem to be the case, as the company has just updated its i405 support docs with details of a new OTA update that should begin rolling out shortly. It's mostly a bug fixer, which looks to fine-tune the experience after the most recent OTA.

Post-update, you should find that voice calls sound better, emails should send more reliably when using Outlook, and some of the Verizon-specific apps (like My Verizon and VZtones) have been updated.

Another day, another Jelly Bean update to a Samsung Galaxy device. Today's target: T-Mobile's Galaxy S Relay 4G (I still hate that name). Unlike many of the other Jelly Bean updates rolling out to Galaxy phones, this one's only available through Kies and OTA.

Over the past few days, ASUS has begun rolling out a treat to MeMO Pad Smart 10 owners, distributing Android 4.2.1 in an update to build number V10.6.1.15. The update, which rings in at about 500MB, brings the MeMO to 4.2.1 from 4.1, delivering on ASUS' "Q2 2013" promises noted in our review.

Of course, the headlining feature with this update is 4.2's multi-user support, which we already saw on an ASUS slate back when the manufacturer brought 4.2 to the TF300T in the US, beating other OEMs to the update punch.

An incremental update to the massively refreshed Google Play Store started rolling out yesterday evening. The new version is 4.0.26 while the previous version from April 9th was 4.0.25.

As expected, there are no major changes in this release, just minor bug fixes, as confirmed by Ron's quick teardown and comparison.

Owners of Sony's Xperia Tablet S, it's time to get excited. Sony just announced that Jelly Bean (Android 4.1.1 in this case) will hit its production servers tomorrow morning between 9AM and 10AM PST, which means an OTA is on its way.

Earlier today, Google started pushing some new open source code to AOSP (Android Open Source Project) marked with 2 new tags: android-4.2.2_r1.1 and android-4.2.2_r1.2. The build number corresponding to the 4.2.2_r1.2 release is JDQ39E.

What's New?

After weeding out the changes from the commit logs, it looks like all of them are, as expected, very minor.

Pocket, in an update to celebrate the one year anniversary of Read It Later's rebrand, has introduced (among other things) Send to Friend, a new feature that allows for quick, easy sharing of content with friends. Users can accept shared content directly from the Pocket app, using the app's new Inbox. Those sharing can also highlight quotes or add their own comments before sharing, sending them along for friends to read.

WordPress is a clutch tool for most bloggers, as its easy-to-use, versatile interface provides essentially everything one needs to get content on the internet. For the longest time, however, the associated app hasn't been the greatest thing to use (read: it kinda sucked); today, however, it has been updated to v2.3 which brings a new Holo UI, along with a few new features.

What's in this version:

It's the big UI update!
