Google Is Testing A New Group Conversation App Called Spaces

Google probably has tons of projects in testing that we'll never hear about until they come out (assuming they do). One of these unannounced projects is an app called Spaces. It's part of a non-public beta in the Play Store, but we've gotten a look at the app. You can think of it as a group messaging app, but more focused.

LEGO Jurassic World Lets Players Explore All Four Movies As The Real Stars: The Dinosaurs

Okay, so Jurassic World didn't exactly live up to the groundbreaking standards of the original movie. That probably doesn't matter to the herds of kids who went to see it just to watch some dinosaurs scaring the crap out of a bunch of puny humans. That being the case, a tie-in with LEGO for toys and games is pretty brilliant. After a substantial delay, you can now play the LEGO video game version of Jurassic World, which also includes bits from the original Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park: The Lost World, and that other one with Téa Leoni.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, First Announced For The SHIELD Android TV At Launch, Is Finally Available On The Play Store

Way back at the Game Developer's Conference just over a year ago, NVIDIA announced the SHIELD Android TV. While the presentation included streaming PC games and NVIDIA's GeForce NOW (formerly GRID) streaming game service, the announcement also focused on full-version PC games that would be getting full Android ports built especially for the SHIELD's high-powered Tegra X1 hardware. We've seen precious little of that - few of the big-name games first announced with the SHIELD have come to fruition aside from Doom 3 and Metal Gear Rising. But today we get perhaps the most impressive game from the original announcement: the latest entry in the Borderlands series.

Sky Kids Launches On The Play Store, Peppa Pig And Lazytown In Tow

International pay-TV broadcaster Sky has launched Sky Kids, a new app specifically designed to allow your little ones to watch their favourite TV shows on an Android device. There's a caveat, though - it seems to be only available for tablets. Nonetheless, Sky says if you're a Sky TV customer with Sky+ Family, Variety, or Sky Q, this app is available free of charge.

The app will let users set up profiles, much like Netflix does, so each child in the family can watch their own shows. These profiles can be age-restricted, which means a 3-year-old wouldn't be able to watch a show designed for a 7-year-old.

All your favorite Marvel heroes are ready and waiting in the new Avengers Alliance 2 game, so I hope you didn't spend a lot of money playing the first one.
