The Original Moto G Gets Its Android 5.1 Update On Verizon

The original Moto G started getting its official update to Android 5.1 in July. But those were unlocked units and we all know how operators like to test, re-test, delay, and re-delay OTA updates, so odds were that you would have to wait for months before getting it on your device if it wasn't unlocked.

Well, the odds and the stars have aligned in your favor if you're on the Verizon XT1028 version of the Moto G because Lollipop 5.1 is finally coming to you.

Skype 6.11 Adds Support For Saving Video Messages, Upgraded Mojis, Enhanced Search, And More

Skype for Android has just been updated to version 6.11 with a handful of nifty features and improvements. The upgrade lets users delete, mark as read, or mute notifications via a long tap on a contact or conversation, and search results will now become populated with conversation content, in addition to contact and group names. It also allows users to save sent and received videos to the photo gallery, which wasn't offered in the previous version for some reason (and which Skype added because of user feedback).

Play Services v8.4 Exposes Many Details About Family Groups, Teases Nearby For App Invites, Tweaks Smart Lock And Android Auto [APK Teardown]

A fresh update of Google Play Services is headed out to our Android hardware around the world. This brings the framework package up to v8.4 and actually carries a couple of user-facing changes for us to check out. There's nothing too big, which is pretty normal for a Play services update, but there are some nice visual touch-ups for Smart Lock and a new option in the Android Auto developer options. But that's not all, a teardown shows that we're getting much closer to family organization (yes, for family sharing) and app invites will finally become useful as they can finally be sent to the people that need them most – the people right next to us.

Newest Google Street View v2.0 Adds Importing, Expanded Support For Spherical Cameras, And Bulk Actions

Google Street View hit 2.0 back in September, and everyone who captures, uploads, and manages photo spheres cheered in unison. Performing any of these actions became easier after the app separated from Google Maps, but there is always room for improvement. Today, Google released a new version that adds a few features that will make life a little easier for doing certain things.

Official Changelog
• Import photo spheres from your device
• Expanded support for linked spherical cameras
• Bulk actions

Importing photo spheres has been on my wish list since the app was first launched. In the past, I have taken photo spheres using the Google Camera, which were stuck outside of Street View.

Football Manager Mobile 2016, SEGA's Less-Demanding Soccer Management Sim, Is Now Available For 9 Bucks Plus In-App Purchases

Considering the last year of events in the NFL, my usual cheeky poking of soccer fans would probably be in bad taste. After all, when one of the most visible "managers" in America's version of football is Jerry Jones, a man who would probably punch a baby in the face while he ate a puppy sandwich if it meant he could win a Superbowl, I'm in no position to take jabs at The Beautiful Game.* So, for all you football fans who dream about managing a World Cup team, SEGA is back with another entry in its endless Football Manger series.

Samsung Continues To Support The Galaxy View With A Bluetooth Remote Control App

So far Samsung's plus-sized Galaxy View tablet has been given a custom CNN news app and a sort of bulletin board photo app, both of which are exclusive to the device. But Samsung isn't finished yet. Today they published a third app that, if not exclusive to the 18.4-inch tablet itself, is certainly meant to be used exclusively with it. It's a remote control app that lets you operate pretty much every input on the device via a Bluetooth-connected Android phone.
