The Chromium Team Is Implementing Reader Mode Again, Now Being Tested In Chrome Dev

Back in Chrome v39, we got a look at a reader mode not unlike many other mobile browsers such as Firefox. However, it didn't even leave Chrome Beta before getting hidden in the flags menu. Features that were not originally in flags but later moved there tend not to come back. Well, the latest Chrome Dev, v45, features a revamped version of reader mode. Now, on pages the browser decides could benefit from it, it gives a prompt that says "make page mobile-friendly." Tapping on that brings the user to a slightly redesigned reader view, though it isn't described as such anywhere.

[APK Teardown] Google App v4.8 Prepares For 'Ok, Google' Offline, Voice Commands To Control Volume And Brightness, And Much More

Most of the app updates this week were relatively quiet, with the notable exception of Play Music with its new ad-supported radio feature. That doesn't have to mean some of the updates don't have something new to offer. The Google app (formerly "Search") was bumped up to v4.8 yesterday, but it doesn't seem to have any noticeable changes right now. However, a look under the hood reveals some pretty interesting features on the horizon.

[Weekend Poll & Discussion] Do You Use Google Drive? For What? Do You Like It?

Google Drive is becoming quite a big product. With Google Photos now being a thing (and deeply integrated with Drive), the subjugation of Docs, Sheets, and Slides under the Drive banner, and continued and increasingly powerful integration with apps and services on Android, the once fairly simple cloud storage locker is now quite a flexible product.

So, we're curious: do you actually use it? For what, exactly? Do you like Drive?

Redub, From The Developer Of Repix, Lets You Remix Videos And Dub In Your Voice

Video editing on mobile is still far from perfect - the complexity of the task and the limitations of a small touchscreen mean that getting anything done with precision is tricky. Apps with bite-sized editing like Vine are a good starting point, but we could use something to occupy the middle ground. Enter Redub, a video editing tool from developer Sumoing. It aims to bring a few much-needed tools (and an easy interface) to mobile video editing.

[Hands-On] Inputting+ Brings Undo, Redo, And Find And Replace To Touchscreen Typing On Android

Inputting+ quietly keeps tabs on all the text you write across various apps for safekeeping while bundling an undo and redo function in case you have accidentally made a change that you didn't mean to. And if you want to find and replace something, Inputting+ has your back there too. All of this is easily accessible from a small bubble (which can be turned off, made transparent, and made bigger/smaller) that floats on your screen while typing.

Google Celebrates LGBT Pride Month With Several Custom Animations In Hangouts

The month of June, also known as LGBT Pride Month, is nearing an end. But that doesn't mean it's too late to enjoy a few celebratory animations in Hangouts. If you type the words "happy pride" into the instant messenger, you will get a visit from a number of emoji standing in front of a rainbow or waving a flag. Some may even be making out.

Tales From The Borderlands Episode 3 'Catch A Ride' Arrives On Android

You've heard of Borderlands because of the original multiplayer-centric first-person shooter that appeared on consoles and the PC. But there's a decent chance that the reason you're thinking about it now is the result of TellTale's point-and-click adventure game 'Tales from the Borderlands' (and no, not just because you're reading this article). This title has simply been a rejuvenating way to dive back into the cel-shaded world, and now that episode three is available, players have another reason to return.

Google Puts Tablescape 'Foodograph' Experiment To Rest

Back in February, we caught sight of an interesting experiment Google was undertaking with the help of trusted local guides. The experiment was an app called Tablescape - a "community to make, share, and discover amazing foodographs." With a little digging, we found that the content shown in the screenshots (originally posted by El Androide Libre) lined up with a community called The Plate, which was likely serving as a Google+-based content funnel for the app.
