Tango, the chat app, releases its Web client

Tango, beside being a cool dance, is also a chatting application similar to WhatsApp, Telegram, Allo, and countless others. It may not be as well recognized as some of these brands, but it is popular in some countries around the world. And just like many of its competitors, Tango is now spreading from mobile to the desktop.

The Tango WebChat app is live at web.tango.me. You sign in by verifying your phone number and once you're in, you can chat with all your contacts and continue your mobile conversations from the comfort of a larger screen and more responsive keyboard. As someone who uses WhatsApp Web all day everyday, I can assure you that there's a lot of convenience in being able to do everything from your desk without having to pick up your phone to reply to each message you receive.

Google app v7.3 beta prepares for podcast subscriptions, data saver for Now Cards, and more [APK Teardown]

Version 7.3 of the Google app began rolling out to users in the beta channel earlier today. There are a few odd little changes to be found poking around in the UI, like a new menu shortcut on many of the Assistant settings screens that leads to the Activity Controls settings, but it's all pretty innocuous. We'll surely see more significant features going live as Google activates them remotely over the coming weeks™. Nevertheless, there are some interesting things to be found during the course of a teardown.

Here are a few ways machine learning has improved Gboard

Google has been improving Gboard with the same type of tools it uses for speech recognition: machine learning. The budding technology is rapidly becoming a ubiquitous method for improving results and performance. If a network can be trained to accurately accomplish something in a performant way, odds are you'll see it introduced to any product it can be applied to. Gboard and text-input as a whole are no different, and we are reaping the benefits of improved corrections and predictions every time we swipe out a low-accuracy message to a friend. But how do these improvements work?

Popular Twitter app Fenix gets a 2.0 preview release

Fenix has been one of the most reliable Twitter clients I've used, but it's falling a little behind other apps. That's to be expected considering the upcoming changes. The developer has been hard at work on a completely revamped version of Fenix, and now you can take it for a spin. Fenix 2.0 is available in the Play Store as a free preview, but be aware the final version will be a new paid listing.
