The Chinese company has just uploaded its calculator app, creatively named "Mi Calculator," to Google's app marketplace, and it's actually pretty nifty.

Google Photos will now cache videos you've watched to avoid using more data when replaying them

There are a handful of Google services that virtually everyone uses, and Google Photos has managed to squeeze into that select group. Over the two years it's been out, Photos has accumulated over 500 million users as of May 2017. Although the service still isn't perfect, it's getting there. The latest update enables watched videos to be cached so that they won't use up more data when replayed.

Capcom is finally releasing a new Puzzle Fighter game, and it's coming to Android later this year

Capcom Vancouver is developing it, and it's going to be a mobile only release.

A shortcut would be a welcome simplification of that process.
