Google+ v9.20 adds notification channels on Android 8.0 Oreo, unfortunately they're not very useful [APK Download]

Notification channels are one of the key user-facing features added with Android Oreo, and almost all of Google's major apps were ready for launch day with their own set of custom channels. A few notable stragglers like Inbox and Hangouts remain, but today's update to the Google+ app means it cannot be counted among them. Unfortunately, the custom channels added in this update are almost certainly not what G+ users were hoping to see.

Andromeda brings Substratum theming to unrooted Android 8.0 Oreo devices

It took a bit over two weeks, as opposed to the promised one, but it's finally here. Substratum support for Android 8.0 Oreo, in the form of the newly released Andromeda app, has been released. It's not quite as straightforward or simple as Substratum is on a supported ROM, but it will give users on Oreo the ability to theme. And, best of all, you won't need root to use it.

Start off the week with 31 temporarily free and 25 on-sale apps

It's Monday again, which means that I'm back for the first app sales post of the week. Today's list should surprise no one, but I don't get to choose which apps go on sale and which do not. Still, someone might find an icon pack or game that appeals to them. In that case, more power to you.

We received a tip today about a strange problem affecting bluetooth on the Moto G4 Plus, and it has something to do with Google Play Protect. It seems as though the issue is fairly widespread, too, as there are a number of reports on the Lenovo forums from disgruntled users.

ellentube slow-mo dances its way to the Play Store, 3 years after iOS

Oh Ellen, it's stuff like this that could make me love and respect you just a little bit less. Boy, what am I saying? I'm joking, I swear. You'd have to do a lot more than ignore Android for 3 years to annoy me, and I do work for Android Police. We could have arrested you for this unforgivable offense and had you on trial for ignoring the majority of smartphone owners. That'd make a good skit actually, we'd be dressed in Android policemen and policewomen costumes, we'd barge in on you during the show... Oops, I got carried away.

[Update: Live for Flex cam] Canary introduces 2-way talk, new web app, and enhanced livestreams to its connected security cams

Despite trying out many brands, Canary is still one of my favorite connected cams but its software keeps advancing at a very slow pace and competitors are starting to catch up. That's why I was happy today to see several new features coming to Canary... until I realized most of them require a Membership subscription. Why does everything good in tech these days require a monthly bill?

Hulu adds full-screen scrubbing previews to its Android app

Hulu's Android app is pretty great. It supports multi-window (something that Netflix still hasn't figured out), and the interface looks great. But one of the few features noticeably missing has been full-screen scrubbing. In other words, when you skipped around the timeline of a movie/show, there would be no preview available. Not even the tiny thumbnail that the YouTube app has.

VolumeSync syncs together your notification and media volumes

Slightly over a week ago, XKCD posted a comic highlighting Android's volume problem. Mainly that trying to turn down the media volume before media playback starts usually results in the ringer volume being changed instead. But as the old saying goes, "there's an app for that," and the app for this is VolumeSync.

[Update: Reply reminders too] Google Inbox now reminds you to follow up on important emails

In a recent teardown, we found that Google was working on follow-up reminders for the Inbox Android app. When enabled, the app would guess which emails need to be followed up, and move them to the top of the inbox. Now the feature appears to be going live for users.
