Periscope Introduces Support For Landscape Video Broadcasting

Periscrope is Twitter's app for broadcasting live streams. Something's happening. You pull out your phone, you turn on the camera, and you show the world what's going on. Or at least the people who come across your account.

Since launch, the app has only supported vertical videos. But enough people have scoffed at this idea that the team is now introducing the option to turn your phone sideways. Landscape recording is making its way into the latest Android and iOS versions of the app.

Other additions include showing a list of mutual followers to pick from when you start a private video stream.

Google My Business 2.1 Introduces New Interface For Updating Your Info, Google+ Post Insights, And More

There aren't many apps where the name is also a sentence, but Google My Business tells you precisely what users want their customers to do. The app gives you control over some of the information that appears when people go searching for your fine establishment, and the latest release impacts the interface that appears when you go about updating that information.

Google's new editor borrows from Search and Maps, where details pop up on a card from the bottom of the screen. You now have the ability to not just designate specific hours of operation, but to show if you're open 24 hours.

Google: Unsupported Cards Already In Your Google Wallet Can Come To Android Pay, But Only For A Limited Time

Because there's been such tremendous confusion about what cards Android Pay does and does not support, we decided to reach out to Google for some clarification. Basically, we were wondering if cards you have in Google Wallet with tap-and-pay that are not supported in Android Pay will still work once Android Pay arrives. The answer is: yes. But, there are caveats. Let's break this down as a Q&A.

  • If I have cards in my Google Wallet that aren't on the supported card list for Android Pay, can I keep using tap-and-pay for those cards on Android Pay? Yes.

To do this, you will need to open Android Pay and add these cards, then accept the Bancorp virtual card agreement.

Play Newsstand 3.4.4 Is Live In The Play Store, Adds Scores And News About Your Favorite NHL, NBA, NFL, And MLB Teams [APK Download]

Play Newsstand is one of those apps that I really like, but I don't find myself launching nearly as often as I probably "should." Not sure why, but I really only use it for magazines, and I often forget that it even does the news thing. Oops.

Now, however, I have a new reason to tap that little blue icon: Google added support for scores and news about athletic teams. Seeing as how I'm a die-hard Chicago Bulls fan, I love the idea of having access to something aside from Bleacher Report's Team Stream app to get all the latest on what's happening with my boys in the windy city.

Twitch 4.4 Hits Google Play, Brings Push Notifications For Broadcasters You Follow

Man, this Twitch thing - I still find it intriguing that people like to watch other people play video games instead of actually playing themselves. I mean, there's nothing wrong with it (I'm actually guilty of getting caught up in watching other people's games when I open the app, too), it's just something I never thought would be a thing, you know?

Anyway, that's not the point. This is about Twitch 4.4, which brings a couple of new features to the app. First and foremost, it brings push notifications for broadcasters that you're already following, so you'll know when something's going down.

Paid Newsstand Content Launches In Malaysia And Thailand

Before getting Google Play content onto our Android devices, Google has to dot its i's, cross its t's, and shake hands with the right people all over the globe. If a country doesn't have access to certain things in the Play Store yet, chances are Google is still jumping through hoops. After all, the company would love for as many people to use its services as possible.
