Google Releases Invite-Only 'Divide Productivity Preview' Suite For Security-Minded Corporate Users

Half a year ago, Google purchased Divide, a security-focused startup that isn't exactly a household name in the consumer space. The company appealed to enterprise clients by separating personal data from work-related stuff using containers. The acquisition, we figured, came as part of Google's efforts to make Android a better option for corporate users that have traditionally acted squeamish towards the mobile OS.

Now we're seeing at least one byproduct of that arrangement. Google has released the Divide Productivity Preview into the Play Store, an app that can only be used as part of the Android IT Preview Program. The suite serves as a gateway to a company's existing corporate Exchange/ActiveSync or Notes-compatible infrastructure.

Target Releases Obnoxiously Named But Cool Healthful App To Manage Your Target Pharmacy Prescriptions

If you get your prescriptions filled at Target, the big-box store has just released an app on the Play Store to help you manage them much more easily. The Healthful (shudder) app lets you submit refill requests, transfer scrips to another store, and can even help you find a cheap generic for your prescribed medication. Oh, and it tracks your prescription fill status, too, so no more annoying SMSs or phone calls. Yay.

YouTube Music Key Is Rolling Out Now

We knew that YouTube Music Key would start rolling out this week, and it looks like it's in full force at this point. A bunch of us here at AP already have it, and from the look of our tip box, most of you do as well. If not, well, I'm sorry. Here's a quick look at what you're missing.

As expected, we've got offline playback (you can choose to save the videos in 360p or 720p), background playback, and ad-free music videos. If you have it on mobile, then it's also available on the web, so there's that, too.

At this time, it looks like the rollout is limited to Play Music All Access subscribers, especially considering it just seems to show up for users without any additional signup.

Android TV's Google Search App Arrives In The Play Store For Easier Updates

You can navigate the Android TV interface using a remote control or dedicated app, but Google would really like for you to use your voice. Even if you're typing, the company would prefer you search for what you're looking for, rather than browse manually. This is Google, we're talking about.

The TV version of the Google search app has now found its way into the Play Store, which should allow for easier updates going forward, even if there's no particular reason to rush and download it right away.

Google Search doesn't just let you look for films and TV shows. You can also pull up the weather, sports scores, and general facts.

Pushbullet Update Brings Copy & Paste Feature To The Chrome And Firefox Extensions, A Few Other Enhancements

You guys love Pushbullet, right? If not, it's probably because you haven't used it. This is easily one of the most powerful utilities available on Android, and definitely one worth having installed. And as of today, it's getting even more powerful (or convenient, at least).

As you probably already know, the guys behind Pushbullet never sleep. I've asked them how they seem to gogogo all the time, but they're not giving up on any secrets. Bummer. Anyway, they brought universal copy & paste to the app a while back, but it had one quirk: it required the Windows app to be installed.

New SwiftKey Update Brings Significant Performance Improvements, Twelve New Languages

SwiftKey has been my go-to keyboard on every Android device I've owned for the last...long time. Google's stock keyboard keeps getting better and better, but it just can't seem to match what SK can do, and every time it gets close, the SwiftKey guys generally push an update that puts it back in the lead by a large margin.

Today's update, though, is something else altogether. This is probably the most significant update to SwiftKey in the last several months, possibly even longer. This update brings something SwiftKey has needed for a long time: faster load and quit times, quicker navigation between fields, and more responsive typing.

Unified Remote Receives A Material Design Update, Complete With A New Screen-Mirroring Feature

Unified Remote gives your PC the TV treatment, letting you control it from afar with just the right blend of convenience and laziness that have turned us into the society that we are. Its developers have created a solid app, and they're not wasting any time making sure it looks up-to-date.

Version 3.1 preps Unified Remote with those touches of Material Design that should make it feel more at home on a device running Lollipop. Below you can see shots of the new menu button, a side panel that pulls out on top of the action bar, and a floating action button.

Yonomi Is Like IFTTT For Your Smart Gadgets, Helps You Wake Up To Fresh Coffee, Toast, And Cool Tunes

All of these "smart" devices in our lives sure are creating a mess for us. We have to remember to charge them and take the time to set them up properly, every gadget has its own app on our phone, and none of them seem to be able to communicate effortlessly with each other unless they come from the same manufacturer, and even then... That's where Yonomi comes into the picture.

With one app, Yonomi aims to solve the mess that is our connected life. It integrates with some of the big players out there, like Nest, Jawbone, Sonos, Philips Hue, and Belkin WeMo, as well as your Android phone or tablet.

Google Opens Up Merchant Support To China, Allowing Developers To Distribute Apps In 130+ Countries (But Not China)

In an interesting bit of news this evening, it looks like Google has opened up merchant support to China, allowing developers to distribute free or paid apps, in-app purchases, and subscriptions in over 130 countries.

The news comes in a post to Google's official Android Developers blog, which goes on to explain that Chinese developers distributing paid apps through the Play Store will receive payment via wire transfer to a Chinese bank account in USD.

Google encourages interested Chinese developers to register on the Play Store and set up their Wallet merchant accounts to get started.

This isn't quite the news some may have hoped for, though - the opening of merchant support to China does not mean that Chinese users have access to paid apps on the Play Store.

You Can Now Embed (Public) Photo Spheres And Street View Images On The Web Using Google Maps

Embedding photo spheres has been a painful and annoying process since Google announced the ability way back when (and then stopped supporting it in Views). Today, the Google Maps team is making it a lot easier, using the Google Maps Embed API to get the job done. Take a look!
