Latest Box update adds the ability to upload folders

Cloud storage and file syncing apps seem like a dime a dozen these days. That is not necessarily a bad thing, since choice is one of the best things about technology in general. Each of us here at AP have our own preferences for which services we use — most of us use multiple offerings, actually. One of the biggest names you will hear about is Box, and its Android app got updated to allow for uploading entire folders from your device.

Snapchat 9.45 adds group chats, new filters on Memories, and Shazam integration for some reason

If you're still putting up with the unoptimized mess that is the Android Snapchat application (unless you have a very speedy phone), you might be excited to hear that the 9.45 update is now available. No, it doesn't make using the app any less painful, but there are some new features to enjoy.

Twitter officially announces live video streaming from the mobile app, powered by Periscope

No, #GoLive is not a trending topic about bringing back Adobe GoLive. Instead, it is related to Twitter bringing the full streaming abilities of Periscope to the mobile Twitter apps. Starting today, a new 'Live' button is visible when composing a tweet, which allows you to start a live stream. As far as functionality goes, it is the exact same as starting a stream from the Periscope app.

Chrome Beta 56 adds official Web Bluetooth API support, experimental WebVR, and more [APK Download]

Chrome 55 marked the arrival of many user-side changes, including Chrome's built-in download manager and saving pages for offline reading. Normally I separate posts about Chrome releases into new features for users and new abilities developers can use, but this release (at least in its current form) is almost completely about new APIs.

Play Music v7.1 prepares to add an autoplay option and sound quality settings for Wi-Fi and downloading [APK Teardown]

An update to Google Play Music began rolling out earlier this week, but there aren't any signs of changes in the UI. However, a couple of interesting things did turn up during a teardown. We can look forward to new settings to control audio quality for each of the major situations for downloading music. Additionally, there will be an option to allow the app to begin playing music as soon as it launches. If you're eager to grab the latest version before it comes to your device naturally, there's a download link at the bottom.

Google makes it easier to switch from iOS to Android with Google Drive backup tool

Apple has a switch tool in the Play Store that helps Android people switch to iOS. It's unlikely Google would get such an app approved by the Apple bots in the App Store. However, it's done a bit of an end-run around that with an update to the Drive app. You can now back up your iPhone data to Drive, then restore it all on Android.

Gfycat releases official Loops app on the Play Store after georestricted beta

Back in April, we spotted a Gfycat app on the Play Store, but it was only available in some countries and seemed to still be in beta. Now that app is renamed to Gfycat Loops, has a new Play Store listing, and is officially released in many countries.

Gfycat Loops lets you satiate your desperate need for gifs. You can search GIFs and browse among more than 200 categories of memes and reactions, sign in with your account and manage your own GIFs, but the part you're most likely looking for is GIF creation.

With Loops, this happens either by directly recording something on the camera, converting an existing video, converting video links from any site, or recording your screen and turning it into a GIF.

Pokémon GO players have been salivating at the notion of gen 2 monsters showing up in the game, but the holiday update isn't quite so grand. Okay, it's a lot less grand. There are a handful new Pokémon, which can only be hatched from eggs. Oh, and Pikachu has a new hat.
