Chromebooks from ASUS, Lenovo, and Dell get the Play Store on Chrome OS Stable

It's taking a while, but Google is delivering on its promise to add the Play Store to all Chromebooks made in 2017 and beyond. Over a dozen models received Android app support this summer, but only in the Chrome OS Beta Channel. Three more models now have the Play Store in Chrome OS Stable, meaning owners don't have to switch to a less-stable version of Chrome OS to use Android apps.

ASUS says the entire ZenFone 3 and 4 series will get Android O

ASUS isn't always the best with updates. The company often releases phones with already-outdated software, like the ZenFone 3 Zoom that came with Marshmallow. In a similar vein, the ZenWatch 2 and 3 were some of the last watches to get Android Wear 2.0. But at the ZenFone 4 launch event, ASUS promised that the entire ZenFone 3 and 4 lineup would get Android O.

ASUS ZenFone AR review: A decent phone, but Tango still fails to impress

Google has partnered with another manufacturer to produce a phone with Tango on board, for better or for worse. Stepping up to the plate this time is Asus with the ZenFone AR. The first phone ever to support both Tango and Daydream VR comes in a much, much smaller package than last year's Phab2 Pro from Lenovo, and accomplishes both things in an arguably better manner.

The ZenFone AR comes with a pretty good camera, a nice Super AMOLED screen, Nougat, and the least offensive version of ZenUI to date. Unfortunately, it's the battery life that really drags this phone down.

The ASUS ZenFone 4 family gets officially announced in Taiwan

At the end of last month, Asus said that it would be revealing a ZenFone 4 of some description on August 19th (in two days time) in the Philipines. Earlier in July, the ZenFone 4 Max was quietly launched in Russia. Fast forward to the present day, and Asus has just announced four phones: the ZenFone 4, ZenFone 4 Pro, ZenFone 4 Selfie/Selfie Pro, some of which were accidentally leaked by the company themselves a week ago. Confused? So are we, but let's try to pick through the pertinent information.

ASUS accidentally leaks ZenFone 4, ZenFone 4 Selfie/Selfie Pro, and 5.2" ZenFone 4 Max

ASUS is still chugging along with its series of ZenFone devices, most recently with the AR and 3 Zoom. The first product in the ZenFone 4 lineup was quietly released in Russia last month, but it looks like four more are on the way. ASUS' online French store accidentally listed the unreleased phones, and promptly took them down - but not before they were noticed.

The unlocked Asus ZenFone AR is now available on Amazon starting at $599

There has only been one Tango phone up to this point, the hilariously oversized Lenovo Phab2 Pro. Now, Asus is arriving on the scene with a phone that actually looks like a phone rather than a re-badged tablet. The ZenFone AR went on sale through Verizon last night, and now it's live on Amazon as an unlocked device. For a mere $599, you can begin exploring augmented reality, which I hear is way cooler than regular reality.

ASUS ZenFone AR is now available from Verizon for $648

The first phone to be equipped with Google's Project Tango augmented-reality capabilities was the Lenovo Phab2 Pro. If you read our review, you'll know that it wasn't a good experience at all. But another Tango-powered phone is on the way, and you can order it now from Verizon.

Asus sets ZenFone 4 unveiling for August 19th

The explosion of budget phones several years ago allowed Asus to become a larger player in the smartphone market. There have been ups and downs since then, including a ZenFone 3 launch that took way too long to come to fruition. Perhaps things will be different with the ZenFone 4, which Asus is announcing on August 19th.

Android Wear 2.0 update is now available for the smaller 1.45" ASUS ZenWatch 2 as well

Two days after hitting its larger 1.63" sibling, the Android Wear 2.0 update has made its way to the smaller (and surprisingly, more expensive) 1.45" ASUS ZenWatch 2. This is the last ZenWatch that had still been waiting to receive the update, as it's been confirmed that the first ASUS ZenWatch will not be updated to Wear 2.0.

Android Wear 2.0 is rolling out to the Asus ZenWatch 2 (1.63-inch)

Google launched Wear 2.0 many moons ago in early 2017, and here we are in the middle of summer and some watches are still waiting on the update after a series of delays. The ZenWatch 2 is no longer among them... at least the larger version. That watch is getting the Wear 2.0 update as we speak while the small version continues to wait.
