Xfinity TV Go Update Delivers Over A Dozen New Live Channels And Better Video Quality

For people who have a Comcast cable subscription, the Xfinity TV Go app is quite the nice piece of software. Rather than just providing shows for immediate streaming, which is less groundbreaking these days than it used to be, Comcast provides quite a few channels for live streaming. Now many more networks are available, including A&E, Cooking Channel, DIY, Food Network, HGTV, History Channel, MUN2 (companion to Telemundo), Sprout, Starz, TBS, TRUtv, TNT, and the Travel Channel.

BBC iPlayer Gets Predicted Chromecast Support, But Users With Imported Chromecasts May Need To Factory Reset Before It'll Work

For our readers across the pond, BBC iPlayer takes some of the network's shows and provides them for easy viewing on Android devices. What about the TV? The latest version of the app has that covered too. This would be a surprise, but we already spilled the beans on this release a few days ago. We knew this update was to coincide with the launch of Chromecasts in the UK on March 19th, and now it's here.

Skype For Android Hits Version 4.7, Brings Major Under-The-Hood Redesign That Results In Substantial Battery Savings

Today, Skype is delivering on a promise that it made back in July of last year. That's a long while to wait for an update, but this one is pretty major. In short, the team has carefully crafted an update for Skype for Android that allows it to run in the background with virtually no impact on battery life. That's what they're claiming, anyway.

Essentially, the application (and the service as a whole) had to undergo some major re-thinking, which led to a "transformation" of the way Skype actually works.

[Bonza] Google Search's "OK Google" Command Updated For Australian English

Sometimes Android fans outside of the US feel a bit left out by Google. Not without good reason (and not without telling us and everyone else about it) - Google tends to focus on America for major products and features and expand them to the rest of the world at their leisure. Well Android users down under can now use the voice activation in Google Search and Google Now, or at least use it with a little more ease.

Google Reportedly Plans To Integrate Voice Into Hangouts Within Just A Few Months

Google's messaging situation has been a mess. When Hangouts first appeared, it replaced Google+ Messenger and Google Talk, bringing the company's list of similarly-named Android apps from four down to three. Once Hangouts gained SMS support and replaced Messenger, that dropped the number down to two. Voice is all that remains, and if a report by 9to5 Google is to be believed, we only have a handful of months to wait for it to kick the bucket, with a possible Google I/O announcement seeming increasingly likely.

Dayframe 2.3 Update Makes Chromecast Slideshow Feature Free For All Users, Coincides With 99 Cent Prime Sale

Using Dayframe to turn an Android tablet into a digital photo frame may not sound like the most affordable option out there, but at this point in time, more than a few of us have a couple old Honeycomb-era Android tablets lying around that aren't good for too much else. Following the introduction of Chromecast support in version 2.0 last month, it's pretty simple to turn your TV into one as well.

[New App] Sony Releases Exclusive 'Voice Balloon Photo' Camera App That Sees What People Are Saying

Sony's released another Xperia-exclusive app into the Play Store, and while this piece of software does extend what your phone's camera is capable of, it isn't quite the Zperia Z1's Timeshift Burst feature that the company posted to Google Play a few months back. This one's just for laughs. Voice Balloon Photo is a dedicated camera app, but rather than improving the quality of your shots, it adds character by capturing the voices around you and turning them into speech bubbles in real-time.

[New App] MotoCare Evolves Into Motorola Help, Lands In The Play Store

Yet another Motorola app has been added to the Play Store, but it's not as glamorous this time. MotoCare will now be kept up to date on all supported devices, and it's getting a new (slightly more descriptive) name – Motorola Help.

This app contains basic how-tos, tips, and support information. There is an option to call Motorola support directly, or start a chat session. That's more than you get with most OEMs.

[SNAAAAAKE] Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Companion App Is A Real Version Of The Game's PDA

Between Titanfall, Dark Souls II, and a new Metal Gear game, employers across the globe can probably plot a decline in efficiency around recent high-profile video game releases. But only one of them has the obligatory mobile tie-in app, and that's Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (a.k.a. MGSV: Appetizer). Konami's companion app is now available in the Play Store as a free download.

The companion app basically pretends to be Big Boss's personal PDA, labeled as "iDROID" in a tongue-in-cheek and somewhat anachronistic fashion.
