Google Voice 5.5 adds billing history [APK Download]

While I can't use Google Voice myself, I see a lot of positive feelings for the service online. And now the Android app will be getting just a little bit more approval thanks to a handy addition: billing history.

If you use Google Voice for placing calls, you'll be able to track your available credit through the app's Settings > Billing history. There, you'll find your recent activity with each call, its date and time, duration, how much it cost you, and your balance after it was over.

The USO gets a well-designed Android application

It's always a nice surprise when an official app, whether it be for a government or an organization or a company, is well designed and built with the most modern guidelines and the most responsive elements. Given how often we come across poor apps that look clunky and feel clunkier, from those that you're dead sure have been copied straight from iOS to those that are easy to recognize as web wrappers, I've sort of lowered my expectations for official apps. And that's where the USO's new app surprises with its very modern Android aesthetics, clean interface, and responsive UI elements.

Android Pay starts showing full purchase history for supported cards

Many months ago, Cody predicted through his all-seeing eye (and some strings in the app teardown, but I prefer to think of Cody's powers as absolute magic - is there a thing the guy doesn't know beforehand?) that the Android Pay app would start showing full transaction histories on your supported cards, even for those transactions where Pay wasn't used.

Now it looks like the option has started showing up through a server-side switch as reported by u/shiruken. There's a toggle to enable or disable the option for supported cards in the Android Pay app, and when enabled, it will display all your transactions on that card, regardless of how the transaction was performed: Pay, the card itself, or some other medium.

Google app v7.15 beta adds reset option to customizable search bar, hints at more functionality for Routines and Quartz [APK Teardown]

A new version of the Google app is making the rounds to users that have opted into the beta channel. This update is a bit tamer than some other recent version bumps. The only change popping up in the live interface at this point is a command to return the Google search widget to its original styling. However, there are quite a few small topics in the teardown, including the addition of Scenes to the upcoming support for Routines (a.k.a. multi-action shortcuts) and a couple more details about Quartz and devices that may be related to it.

Instagram now supports Arabic, Hebrew, and Farsi

Here's a thing: Instagram now supports right-to-left languages. Quite frankly, I'm a little surprised that this wasn't present already given the amount of people who speak these languages, but it's here now. If you speak one of those languages, it's very easy to switch your app over to it.

Google is testing a 5-tab design for the Google app

Google just can't decide how the Google app should look. Does it have tabs? What shape are the cards? It's a crap-shoot when you open the app, and some users are getting something completely new in the last couple days. The new 5-tab layout bears some resemblance to a UI we've seen before, but it's a bit cleaner. So, add this to the list of things you might see when you swipe over to Google.

[Update: It's official] Deleting messages on WhatsApp for all recipients starts rolling out

Message recalls have been rumored on WhatsApp for months now and every couple of weeks, we got a glimpse of the functionality in a beta version but it was always a false alert and never properly worked. Now the option appears to be going live, with a slow rollout to more and more users.

Message deletion for all, i.e. message recalls, lets you remove a message you sent from a conversation and it won't just disappear from your end, it'll also go away on the recipient(s)'s phone.
