Sandbox MMORPG Albion Online has officially landed on Android, but you have to pay to play

Alright all you MMORPG fans, there is finally a new full-fledged MMO available on Android. The game is called Albion Online, and it is billed as a sandbox MMORPG with a player-driven economy. Currently, it is not available on the Play Store, but you can pick up the client on Sandbox Interactive's site. The one caveat, of course, is the fact that this MMO is not free-to-play and there is no free trial to be found. You will need to plunk down at least a one time fee of $29.99 in order to gain access to this title.

Bixby's voice assistant aspect has been delayed for a long time in the United States.

Magisk v13.3 released with fixes for the latest SafetyNet detection methods

This is becoming a common refrain, but Magisk has been updated to bypass SafetyNet, again. Just a few days ago Magisk developer topjohnwu told us that he was hard at work on a fix. While he wasn't able to provide a firm date at the time, he may have over delivered on his promise of "soon." The latest update, v13.3, escapes SafetyNet detection. Your Magisk Manager app should prompt you for an update sometime soon.

Dein Persönlicher Assistent: Google Home coming next month to Germany

Hot on the heels of the news that Australia would be the fifth country to get Google Home (following the US, Canada, France, and the UK), it seems the smart home assistant has now learned its third language. The official Google blog in Germany has announced that Google Home will be available in the country from next month. It was only a matter of time really, as Google Wifi was made available there last month. This just leaves Japan to come, of the countries Google said would be getting the smart speaker this summer.

Google Home and Wifi will launch in Australia on July 20th

It's been nine months since Google Home launched in the US, but in that time, it was made available for purchase in only three other countries: Canada, France, and the United Kingdom. The story is much the same for Google Wifi, with only those three countries, along with Germany, deemed worthy enough to have it sold there. But in just a few days, our friends down under will be able to have Google Homes and Wifis of their very own.

[Deal Alert] Customize your rooted phone with Awesome Navbars, free for a limited period

For those who like to tinker with their Android phones on a regular basis, the Substratum Theme Engine is a great way to style your rooted device with seemingly endless possibilities. It's based on code hidden within Android that's intended for use by OEMs to change themes in their skins, but this app now allows anyone to do this. Additional apps can be installed to work in conjunction with Substratum to change certain aspects of a device's theme, and that's exactly what Awesome Navbars does. It changes (you've guessed it) the Android navbar.

Arlo cameras will soon get object recognition features with Arlo Smart

Netgear's Arlo cameras are a solid choice if you need to stick some cameras in places where you don't have a power outlet. The current-gen Arlo Pro cameras can run for about six months on a charge, and they reliably detect motion... all motion. That can mean a lot of notifications if you place a camera outside, but the upcoming Arlo Smart feature will let you filter notifications based on what the camera has actually seen.

SEGA adds Virtua Tennis Challenge to SEGA Forever but still can't figure out how to please fans

Virtua Tennis Challenge is the latest Sega game to be added to the Sega Forever classic games collection. Like all Sega Forever games, Virtua Tennis Challenge is free-to-play with advertisements and contains a single in-app purchase of $1.99 that removes said ads. This gives players a way to try the game without going out of pocket. What is funny is this appears to be biting Sega in the butt, as the reviews so far have not been kind at all.
