[Update: 3 More Videos] Google Shows Off The Power Of The Android Search App In A Couple Of New Ads

"OK Google" is a phrase that gets spoken around my house several times a day. So much, in fact, it's the first thing my two year old says when he picks up a phone. He looks at it, holds it close to his mouth, and out it comes...even if it's an iPhone. He makes me proud.

But I digress, this is about Google's new ads. I personally have grown to rely on Google Now and voice recognition for most things, and Google is trying to get everyone else on that train, as well (come on in guys, there's plenty of room).

Nest Android App Updated To Version 2 With 10-Day History, Steam Check, Additional Safety Tips, And More

As you already know, Nest's alarms are smarter than regular alarms. They pair with an Android app and can provide more specific feedback than BEEP BEEP BEEP. One of their other perks is that, like many gadgets these days, they get better with time. The company is now rolling out version 2 of its mobile apps. The update is available right away, so here's what to expect once it's done installing.

A Notifications Tab Has Shown Up In YouTube For Android

Before now, enabling notifications within the YouTube app would only result in an Android device getting alerted whenever the app had something new to report. Now, there's a tab in the sidebar that's dedicated entirely to these messages. Users can click on it to view their notification history, which should make it much easier to flick away future alerts without wondering if that action will be regretted later.

Notifications will presumably still pop up as before, they just now have a place to stay after they've been dismissed.

SwiftKey Update Brings More Performance Improvements And Bug Fixes

The last few SwiftKey updates have been focused on making the keyboard faster and more responsive, which has been sorely needed for some time. Whether or not that has been successful depends on who you ask, but the developers have now rolled out another update that is supposed to offer additional performance boosts.

Toymail Launches Android App That Lets Parents Talk To Kids Via Animal Walkie Talkies With Funny Voices

Don't try too hard to pitch a product. When I first came across Toymail, I thought it seemed amusing enough. Here's the concept - people (preferably parents, siblings, or friends) speak a message into an app, and that message then comes out of a kid's toy in a weird voice. There's potential for fun here. Sure, I see it. I've been a kid before.

But then I watched the promotional video.

[Update: 1500 More] Boxer Email Comes To Android For $9.99, But We've Got 500 Promo Codes

Google does a lot of things right, and Gmail is generally one of them. Sometimes, however, you just need a little more from your email experience, and Boxer wants to provide that. It takes the basic Gmail app's functionality – like swipe to delete/archive – and builds on that, bringing even more usefulness to this kind of gesture.

Android Police would like to remind you that email cannot speak. In the event that it does speak, Android Police urges you to disregard its advice.

Chase Mobile Updated With Complete Visual Overhaul As Promised

If you're a customer of Chase Bank, you probably know the pain of opening the bank's crusty old app and dealing with legacy menus and other interface nonsense. But you probably also got an email in late August letting you know that the app would be completely redesigned, and that Chase planned to launch the redesign in September. Well, that redesign is finally a reality, and available in the Play Store right now.

It was promised, however, that the app would be available for Android "later this week." A mere two days later the app has been released.
