Yahoo Mail Offers Contact Syncing And An Open Beta Of Its Android App

Yahoo Mail might not be the trendiest web mail service on the planet, but it's still used by hundreds of millions of accounts (if not necessarily that many actual people). And somehow, the official Yahoo Mail app for Android has neglected to sync contact information with the operating system before now. That's been rectified, according to the Mail blog on the Yahoo-owned Tumblr. The latest version of the app in the Play Store, 5.5.3, confirms it in the changelog.

WhatsApp's Latest Update Introduces An Annoying Notification For The Web Client

WhatsApp is doing something not so cool, but maybe a bit understandable in its latest beta version 2.16.86. When you start WhatsApp Web, you'll get a new notification telling you that the web client is currently active.

The notification seems semi-permanent. You can't manually dismiss it, but it disappears when you don't use the web client for a while, only to re-appear when you switch back to that tab in your browser. I kind of understand the rationale behind it: safety and privacy. Maybe you forgot WhatsApp Web running on a computer that you're not using or maybe you've stepped away from your computer, but someone else has opened your tab and started checking your conversations.

Fitbit Adds MobileTrack On The Nexus 5X And 6P: Track Your Activities Without Any Fitbit Hardware

I have had a Fitbit One for 3 years now and I couldn't be happier with that purchase or how easy it is to hook on my bra and leave it on all day. But what if you don't have a Fitbit and want to check the platform to see if it could work for you? Or what if your Fitbit stops working for some reason and you're awaiting a replacement, or you're switching from an old Fitbit to a newer model, or your Fitbit's battery dies, or you simply forget it at home? Would you want to lose the activity data from those hours or days?

[Update: Play Store Page Is Up For Pre-Registration] Duo Is Google's New One-On-One Video Calling App For Android And iOS

As a major component of what appears to be a big push to revamp its messaging offerings, Google has announced Duo, a video calling app. As the name suggests, it is focused solely on two-person video conversations.

Unlike Allo, which Google insists is bringing some fundamentally new features, Duo is all about simplicity.

As far as novel features go, the closest we get is that when you receive a video call, you can see the live video of the caller before you answer.

Fenix Updated With Ability to Peek At Images, Videos, And Profiles Without Leaving The Timeline

Just a few weeks ago it looked like Fenix for Twitter was dead after the developer ran out of Twitter auth tokens. Then a wonderful thing happened—Twitter decided to work with developers like Fenix's Matteo Villa so their apps don't die after running out of tokens. Fenix is back, and the latest update adds a feature called Peek, which kind of, sort of looks like 3D Touch. It's really just a long-press, though.
