PSA: The Google Dialer Works With Many Non-Nexus Phones Now [Update: Not Anymore]

The Google dialer is what ships on all Nexus phones, but OEMs usually create their own vastly different dialer app. Beginning with the v2.05 update, you can install Google's version on most other phones too. This update rolled out a few weeks ago, but it seems that people are still just noticing, so let's get this all out in the open.

Call Blocking Is Now Automatically Disabled For 48 Hours After You Call An Emergency Number

Apparently if you call an emergency number from your Android device, you can't block calls for the next 48 hours.

Airside's Mobile Passport app offers a way to speed up the process of re-entering the US after traveling abroad. You send Customs and Border Protection your passport and customs information via your Android device. Then you get to skip the main line and zip through the dedicated Mobile Passport one instead.

In order to experience this convenience, you must use Mobile Passport in one of the supported airports. Originally, that was Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. Gradually the app made its way to others. Recently two more made the list.

YouTube Music v1.26 Brings YouTube Playlists To The Likes Tab And Makes A Few Visual Adjustments [APK Download]

Many YouTube Red subscribers aren't making use of the dedicated YouTube Music app yet, but it remains one of the somewhat unique perks of the program. Since launch, the app hasn't seen all that many changes, but updates have been coming out pretty regularly with little tweaks and adjustments. Last week, an unexpected jump from v1.20 to v1.25 suggested some big changes were afoot. A teardown didn't reveal anything of substance – just some minor visual tweaks – but a new changelog has come out since the release of v1.26 this week, and gives us something a little more meaningful.

Messenger 1.8.266 Adds A SIM Card Messages Manager [APK Download]

Google's SMS app, Messenger, is one of those apps that does what it says on the tin: it sends and receives SMS messages, and can manage them too. With version 1.8.266, a new feature is coming to Messenger: the ability to manage messages which are saved to the SIM card. It's not clear if the previous versions of Messenger could see these messages but had no interface for displaying them, or if they were completely invisible.

A bit of a history lesson: back when phones had very little storage, the SIM card would sometimes be used for saving messages instead of the phone.

[Update: APK Download] Google Project Fi Updates Fix Data Toggle Bug, Allow Users To Block Incoming Calls

Google's Fi mobile virtual network allows users an impressive amount of fine grain control when it comes to selecting their data allowances. That being the case, it's especially important for users on low tiers to be aware of said usage, and to limit their data consumption when they stray away from the Wi-Fi homestead. A bug in the system created a problem there: it sometimes kept the GSM and/or LTE connection active if a user turned the data toggle off while still on Wi-Fi.
