Tasker beta v5 brings a fresh Material Design look and a huge list of other changes

Tasker has been around for a long time. It's always been defined as an app that prioritizes function over form (which has often led to a fugly, but highly effective design) — oh, and there's the steep learning curve that often turns away the inexperienced. Tasker has been stuck in the Holo era well into the Material Design age, but the latest beta v5.0b1 brings a fresh new look.

Google Photos will now suggest photos to archive

Google Photos has become a very convenient way to back up all your photos... all of them. Even all the receipts, addresses, and other junk. Google recently added archiving to get that stuff out of the main timeline, but now it's going a step further by suggesting photos to archive. It sounds like the feature we spotted in a recent APK Teardown.

[Update: Changes are rolling out] Sling TV announces a new interface for Android users to improve navigation and content discovery

I have watched Sling TV steadily grow in both popularity and size in the time since its birth. The channel count is now quite ridiculous (in a good way), but with that comes the need for easy navigation and new content discovery.

Android Pay v1.24 prepares to suggest linking unknown membership cards after they're used in a purchase [APK Teardown]

The Android Pay team has been going strong with the expansion into new countries and forging partnerships with even more banks, but that doesn't mean the app hasn't been given at least a little bit of attention along the way. The latest version doesn't appear to have any changes on the surface, but a teardown does turn up the signs of one interesting new addition. It looks like Android Pay will begin offering to add membership cards to your account if they are used in an Android Pay transaction. We're still looking for other changes in the app, especially at the terminal, so let us know in the comments if anything interesting turns up.

Play Movies & TV v3.26 adds Picture-in-Picture support for Android O [APK Download]

When Google first started releasing developer previews of new Android versions a few years ago, it was pretty rare to see any of the apps adopting new APIs until the new version was finalized. With Android O, there's a very visible change to that trend as many apps in Google's lineup have already taken features like Notification Channels to heart. Another brand new user-facing feature found support in the latest release of Play Movies & TV: Picture-in-Picture Mode.
