AT&T And Verizon Offer Free Calls And Texts To Belgium Following Terror Attack [Update: Sprint And T-Mobile Too]

Most mobile plans these days let you call just anywhere in your home country without incurring extra fees, and a few even have some international calling included. Phoning Europe from the US is usually spendy, though. For the next few days, a couple carriers have waved all fees associated with calls or texts from the US to Belgium in the wake of Tuesday's terrorist attacks.

[Deal Alert] Here's A $10 Off Coupon Code For The Xiaomi Yeelight Bluetooth Connected LED Lamp We Reviewed Last Week

Cody reviewed a cool little gadget by Xiaomi last week – the Yeelight. It's an LED lamp that's controllable via a smart phone application using a Bluetooth LE connection. According to Cody, it works well and is a solid option for someone wanting a mood light, or a wake-assist lamp, without investing a ton on money into a full-blown smart lighting system. If you want to know more about it, then be sure to check out his full review.

Think it's cool? Well then you can buy one on Amazon. They sell for $69, but today you can buy one for $10 less with coupon code O5TOJGWW, which brings the price down to $59 (you probably could have done that math on your own).

Google To Rebrand The Chromecast App As Google Cast, Updates Google Cast Website

The Chromecast has come a long way since its inception, and it is now much more than just a way to mirror a browser tab to your TV. In fact, most of the ways you can use a Chromecast today have little or nothing to with Chrome itself, and run exclusively on Google's underlying Cast technology. Google is well aware of this drift away from Chrome, which is why it will soon be updating the Android and iOS Chromecast apps to reflect the change: later this week, the Chromecast app will change its name to Google Cast.

The rebranding of the Chromecast app also aims to make it clear that the app is no longer just a controller for either Chromecast dongle (which will retain its name), but that Google Cast is now natively supported across a wide range of devices, from TVs to displays to speakers.

Facebook's 7-Second Profile Videos Seem To Be Rolling Out More Widely On Android

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a 7-second videos is worth a whole several hundred thousand words — depending on the frame rate. So why would you want your Facebook profile to limit you to one photo when there's more to you, your duckface, your pets, your babies, your partner, your family, your latest food order, than any photo can hold? Why not choose a video montage of all of these things that matter most to you, or maybe a short video of you smiling or giggling or being sexy and cool, because how else will anyone know that you're most awesomest'est person on earth?

dbrand's New Galaxy S7 And Galaxy S7 Edge Skins Protect Your Phone From Fingerprints, Slips, And Scatches [Sponsored Post]

Samsung's latest flagship brothers are a lot of things: high-end, beautifully crafted, powerful, and expensive. What they are not though is drop-proof, scratch-proof, or fingerprint-proof. You surely don't want your investment of several hundreds of dollars to slip between your fingers and risk splattering on the floor only because your hand was a little too sweaty or your grip wasn't perfectly tight. You probably don't want it to get scratched from lint and other small particles inside your pocket or purse either.

If you nodded in agreement to the above statements, then you should be in the market for the Galaxy S7 skins from dbrand, well that or the S7 Edge skins if you're carrying the larger brother.

YouTube's Card-Style Menu For Video Options Is Progressively Rolling Out To More People And Disappearing For Others

Hey YouTube users. I've got something for you to try. Start a video and tap the little overflow button at the top right, it'll appear for a short time if you tap the player. For the last few years, you would have seen three or four grayish buttons overlay onto the video with the labels: Captions, Quality, Report, and Cardboard. Here's the thing, you might not see that anymore. Instead, a little white card might slide up from the bottom of the screen with the same options. Take a peek at the screenshots to see what I'm talking about.

[Update: Winners] We Have 50 Codes For Join By Joaoapps To Give Away

We're big fans of cross-device sync here at Android Police. Therefore, we're of the opinion that if you haven't yet heard of joaomgcd's latest app, you're missing out. Join is a bit like Pushbullet, in that it can do Android-to-desktop notifications, desktop SMS, and a cross-device clipboard. But it can do a lot more; for example, you can set your Android wallpaper through Chrome simply by right-clicking on an image of your choice and selecting "Set image as wallpaper."

Join has a fully-featured, ad-supported trial period of 30 days, costing $4.99 if you want to keep using it, although it's currently down to $3.99 for a limited time.
