Google's Handwriting Keyboard for Android Wear 2.0 is now available on the Play Store

Google debuted Android Wear 2.0 at Google I/O last year with a number of great new features, not least of which was a clever spin on the handwriting keyboard. Oddly, the handwriting keyboard was left buried in a hard to find location and had to be activated just to use it. Now that the official Wear 2.0 release is rolling out (kinda), users have reported that this keyboard didn't even come preinstalled, nor could it be found on the Play Store – at least, not until yesterday. The Handwriting Keyboard is now available.

Amazon Music switches to a bottom navigation bar in the latest update

Amazon Music is one of many audio streaming services. If you're neck-deep in Amazon's ecosystem, then I suppose it's one of the best choices for you — especially since Prime members get a discount on the monthly fee.

Google app v7.0 beta includes new Assistant Notification settings, plans redesign of Assistant Services directory, and hints at new device called "Bisto" [APK Teardown + Download]

The Google app went through a major version bump to 7.0 and began rolling out to the beta channel a couple of days ago. A bit of digging around turned up a few new settings, but nothing that explains why the version number went up on this release. Along with the new features, a teardown also raises some light on a few things we can look forward to in the future, including some vital improvements for Services accessed through Google Assistant and what may be a new type of device. If you're not part of the beta channel, you can grab the latest version of the Google app – now with fewer crashes – from APK Mirror.

Google Photos' video stabilization gets demoed, proves impressive

Yesterday, we found out in a teardown that version 2.13 of the Google Photos app brings video stabilization. This is a welcome addition, of course, as nobody enjoys watching shaky footage, but how well does it work? Thanks to some comparison videos that were shared on the net, we can now see that it's pretty damn impressive.

Viber adds inline YouTube playback and last seen timestamps to statuses

Everyone is getting inspired from everyone these days, so it's no surprise to see Viber add features that have been in WhatsApp and/or Telegram for a while. Today's update to version 6.8.2 of the app brings inline YouTube playback and last seen timestamps on statuses.

Google Express app updated with shared lists and other features to accommodate the Assistant shopping list

There was a surprising amount of anger directed at Google several days ago when the Assistant shopping list was moved from Keep to the Home app. Rather than being a general purpose list, it is now tied into Google Express. Now, the other shoe has dropped in the form of an update to the Express app. It brings shopping list improvements that jive with the new Assistant shopping list.

Today Weather is a brand new weather app that is beautiful and easy to use [Sponsored Post]

We all need a weather app. The tricky part of developing a weather app is giving users the right amount of information. Too much and it's overwhelming and a pain to use. Too little and users will be looking for that info in some other app. Today Weather, a new app from a two-person, independent development and design team, strikes this balance perfectly while being easy on the eyes at the same time.
