Video Shows How Android Wear Can Already Be Used To Control Your Home Using AutoApps

A young Android device doesn't become a man until Tasker has come along to usher it into adulthood and some developer has used it achieve greatness. In the case of watches with Android Wear, this doesn't even require much work, for all the ingredients are already in place. This YouTube video shows a wearer using his Samsung Gear Live to control his home using Tasker and a selection of AutoApps.

In the video, we see developer Doug Gregory operate his living room lamp by issuing voice commands to his Gear Live.

Lyft Android App's New Wear Support Lets You Request A Car From Your Wrist Using Only Your Voice

Arranging transportation can be time consuming, so the Lyft folks crammed the ability to locate and schedule a ride into a simple app. Still, while using a smartphone is easy, even that can take up too much time (work with me here). Now the company has added Android Wear support that lets you request a ride by speaking into your wrist. Stop everything, guys. I think this is as easy as things are going to get.

IFTTT App Updated With Android Wear Compatibility, New Channel Added For Wear Recipes

There are a flurry of Android apps being updated to support the new Wear watches, but perhaps none of them has as much potential for genuine utility as If This, Then That (IFTTT). The popular service-linking system just launched its Android component back in April, but they're wasting no time in jumping on the Android Wear platform. The app has been updated to include Wear support, and the service itself is adding recipes for actions started from Wear.

Duolingo And Delta Both Update Their Android Apps With Wear Support

While Duolingo had previously announced its famous language-learning service was headed to Android Wear, today the company updated its standard Android app with the necessary bits to make that happen.

So there it is. Download it. Pretend you have a Wear device. Or something. I'm not really sure.

[New App] Radical.fm, An Ad-free 'Pay-What-You-Can' Music Service Touting 25 Million Songs, Launches On Android

Just like traditional radio, listening to internet radio without paying money requires putting up with ads. Well, usually. Radical.fm tosses this entire concept out the window by letting users stream music for free. If listeners would like to donate to the company to help out, it would be nice, but such generosity is not required. There's a catch, though. The Android app, despite just launching, already looks like it hasn't received an update in three years.

VLC For Android Beta Has Ended Its Ridiculously Long Region Lockout That Excluded The US

Update: While both the US and Canada did not have access to VLC for Android on the Play Store at launch, some of our Canadian readers have pointed out that they have since been able to download it from there for quite some time now. As it turns out, the American release was indeed the last hold out.

We in the tech industry have a tendency to throw around the word "finally" perhaps a tad more often than we should.
