[Update: Gone] New Moto 360 Colors Land On Amazon With Metal Bands, Including A Slimmer 18mm 'Champagne' Option

Update: As commenter JT3 points out, it looks like all the new color options introduced today aren't shipping for at least a month, despite being sold immediately. That includes the separate metal bands. Bummer.

Update 2: ...aaaaand they're gone. The new colors and band listings have been removed from Amazon, presumably to be added back at some point. At least you can drool at the photos below between now and then.

Oppo Announces The 4.85mm Thin R5 And The N3 With A Motorized Selfie-Cam, Both Coming In December

Chinese manufacturer Oppo has been making a name for itself thanks to some unconventional designs on top solid hardware (on paper, at least). The latest round of upgrades for the company's product lines are novel, to be certain: the new Oppo R5 is the latest phone to steal the coveted "world's thinnest" title, and the N3 uses a new rotating camera that's positively unique. But do these features actually make the phones desirable, or are they mere gimmicks?

Google Stars Appears To Be Back As 'Bookmark Manager' For Chrome

We've been seeing bits and pieces (and fully functional prototypes) of Google Stars for a long time now. The tool, which for now acts as a replacement for Chrome's bookmark manager, has been in development even longer, but it looks like the Chrome extension might finally be ready to roll (assuming it doesn't get pulled again) as Google released "Bookmark Manager" to the Chrome Web Store earlier today.

Despite the new name, the extension takes over chrome://bookmarks just as before, with options to organize bookmarks into folders, give those folders descriptions, and even share folders with others.

Google Docs, Sheets, And Slides All Updated With 'Incoming' In Sidebar, New Hamburger Menu Icon, And More [APK Download]

Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides have all received some love today, though the visual changes here are minor. For the most part, these apps were already all material-ed up, and while this update does dot some i's and cross some t's, it doesn't quite leave us satisfied. Fortunately that's not all there is to see here.

What's New

Let's get the biggest visual tweak out of the way first. Yes, Google has changed the hamburger menu icon in the action bar.

No update is too small for Google, in this case the Google Camera. It's going from v2.3 to v2.4, and it doesn't seem to do much of anything. But guys, the number is bigger so you need it right now.

Google Adds Low Balance Alerts And Automatic Deposits To Wallet, But They Didn't Mean To Tell You Yet [Update]

Google's commerce blog was updated with a new post a little bit ago, but it was pulled down almost immediately. Luckily, we got a peek before that happened. Google is preparing to announce two new features of Google Wallet—automatic deposits and low balance alerts. They are both in the updated Wallet app.

Google Has A Six-Line Solution For Developers To Allow Search Queries To Interact With Apps

Months ago, we posted a rumor about "modular actions" set to come to Google's Search app (now just called Google) along with "Ok Google Everywhere" functionality that would allow users to activate search from anywhere on their device. The latter has already been implemented, but Google is still inching toward the former. With the technically unreleased Google app, the search interface can overlay apps from which it is called, but Google today announced another step forward - the ability to let apps hook into search by accepting voice queries from the user.

Google Releases 'Primer: Marketing For Startups' App To Help Small Teams Get Their Brand Out There

Primer: Marketing for Startups isn't like most of Google's other Android apps. For starters, it's the first to appear in the Play Store under the publisher "Google Learn." The app also happens to be such a niche product that only a specific target demographic will benefit from it.

As the name says, Primer is aimed at helping startups manage their marketing efforts. A great deal of work and knowledge goes into getting a new brand in front of consumers and establishing awareness.

Google Play Games Gets A Material Update To Match Android TV [APK Download]

It is apparently 'material all the things' day as Google keeps rolling out those updates. This time we've got a new version of Play Games, but unlike the last one we brought you, this is for all Android devices, not the version intended for Android TV.
