Firefox 57 beta arrives with new UI, revamped new tab page, and incognito keyboard support [APK Download]

A couple of days ago Mozilla announced its biggest update to its desktop browser in a long while with the Firefox 57 beta, bringing the speed boosts of the long-awaited Project Quantum. We already knew the Android version wouldn't be quite so revolutionary, but it's here now, and there are a couple of notable changes nonetheless.

[Update: Confirmed] Android Messages starts showing Smart Replies, plus whacky interface for adding attachments

A couple of months ago, Cody unearthed in his Android Messages 2.3 teardown hints of the app implementing suggested actions, something akin to Gmail and Inbox's smart replies, but more in line with Allo or Assistant in that it could suggest to share your location or open your calendar and more. The image above is our first glimpse at what one of the possible actions, smart replies, could look like.

[Update: New APK fixes crash] Google Keep 3.4.901 rolls auto-numbered lists, but the feature is super buggy now

A few days ago, Google Keep 3.4.901 rolled out and the only change we spotted were 4 new colors for notes. However, the official changelog was released yesterday and it contained another interesting tidbit: auto-numbered lists in text notes.

When it works, the feature does what's intended. You type "1. something" and when you hit Enter, the "2. " is automatically generated, and so on. If you go back to delete some characters, you'll notice that two backspaces are required after the period, presumably to prevent you from messing with the numbering of the list. Here's a video of it in action:

Google Photos v3.6 prepares to identify your pets, bring your photos to life with Motion, and may hint that Lens is a temporary exclusive for Pixels [APK Teardown]

 

The latest update to Google Photos is starting to roll out to users, bringing the version up to 3.6. A run through the app hasn't turned up any brand new features, but there are some interesting things in the teardown. We can look forward to maximum cuteness as facial detection may be expanding to encompass our pets, even mixing them in with the faces of other people. There's also a new feature called Motion that promises to bring life to our images. And finally, there's a firm clue that Google Lens may actually turn out to be a temporary Pixel exclusive.

Google's Trusted Contacts now lets you schedule location alerts that work even if your phone is dead or has no signal

Google's Trusted Contacts app is one of the more personal but highly useful products the company has launched in recent memory, having been released a little under a year ago. If you're not familiar with it (which you understandably may not be), Trusted Contacts allows you to share your location with people you deem trusted, and for those people to request your location. It's a great tool for parents, solo travelers, or anyone who just wants to be able to instantly share their location with close friends or family.

A recent update, version 1.6, added a small but potentially very useful feature: the ability to schedule alerts ahead of time.

Android Pay in Spain adds support for American Express and one Edenred card

Android Pay launched in Spain two months ago, and today Google has updated the Pay support site to indicate the addition of two new card issuers: American Express and Edenred.

American Express cards that are supported include the Active Consumer, Business, and Corporate cards. The one Edenred card that is supported is the Ticket Restaurant Card, so maybe that's popular in Spain? I'm really not sure, but all other Edenred cards remain unsupported for now. But Amex support is probably welcome news for a significant number of people.

American Express also announced it on their website, here. This is in addition to the already large number of BBVA cards supported by Android Pay in the country that were part of the service's launch there.

Google Play Movies seems to be moving to match Apple's new $19.99 UHD pricing

A number of new releases on Google Play Movies have seen their prices for UHD copies lowered substantially, and you've probably got Apple's new 4K version of Apple TV to thank. When Apple announced it would charge the same price for UHD as HD movies (with in-place upgrades - something Play is not offering, sadly), it was probably inevitable that other streaming movie platforms would see their prices drop, as well. Amazon's already doing it, so Play Movies is just playing catch-up here.

Play Movies began offering 4K content a little over a year ago. While not all movies have had their pricing adjusted to the new scheme, you can probably expect that most major studios will make the switch over time, particularly when it comes to new releases.

[Update: Officially announced on Twitter last week] The Play Store is allowing YouTube TV to be installed on some tablets, but it doesn't work on all of them

The YouTube TV app listing has been updated to be compatible with Android tablets. However, YMMV when it comes to specific devices. It isn't currently working for all of them, though you can still sideload the app, as before. The listing on Google play was compatible with a Nexus 7 in our testing, but support for the Pixel C, as well as many other devices, is not present.
