Google Photos 1.20 Adds Commenting And Smart Suggestions For Shared Albums [APK Download]

Google Photos 1.20 has started rolling out, bringing with it the second social feature for the platform: comments in shared albums and photos, plus smart suggestions for relevant additions to a shared album.

Commenting is for either individual photos or an entire album. Cody already found evidence of it in his Photos v1.16 teardown, so it's not a total surprise it's turned up now. When enabled through an album's sharing options (the feature is off by default), there will be a button on the footer when viewing a photo, or "add a comment" is added at the bottom of an album.

Google Updates Design Spec With New Recommendations On Motion & Growth

Google, following through on its promise that the material design spec is a "living document," has updated its design guidelines and suggestions again, this time adding more guidance on motion design, along with new sections for growth & communications and expanding panels.

First up, let's look at what's new in motion - Google has given motion design a more comprehensive section, outlining the principles of motion in material design. The section explains that material motion is responsive, natural, aware, and intentional. Transitions should be quick, clear, and cohesive.

After that brief primer, the motion section goes on to detail - at length - everything from duration and easing to transforming pieces of material and thinking about custom motion patterns that fit in with the material world.

Google Adds A New Goodie For Chromecast And Chromecast Audio Owners: Two Months Of Ad-Free Pandora One Membership (US Only)

Chromecast owners know that even though Google's tiny stream machine is one of the cheapest on the market, it occasionally gets freebies for online video and music streaming services that add some major value. The latest goodie to come to owners of the original Chromecast and the Chromecast Audio is Pandora One, the music service's premium advertising-free tier. New owners can get two months of listening free, which has an approximate value of $8.

Offers tend to come and go, and it isn't always clear who's eligible based on when they bought their Chromecast. This one isn't showing up for me, so neither my original Chromecast model nor my Cast-enabled SHIELD TV are eligible for the promotion.

HTC Says That Marshmallow Updates For The AT&T Versions Of The One M8 And One M9 Will Start On May 12th (Tomorrow)

We've mentioned it before, but Mo Versi of HTC's American division is a good dude. Any given day you can find him on Twitter, answering questions from HTC customers and giving out juicy info on the next major software releases from the company. If every Android manufacturer had someone like Mo, the world would be a better place... and maybe our comment section wouldn't seem so bitter and despondent. Anyway, his latest tidbit is that the AT&T variants of the HTC One M8 and One M9 will be updated to Marshmallow starting tomorrow.

[US Giveaway] Win A 32GB Samsung Galaxy S7 From Android Police And Ting

Samsung's Galaxy S7 is one of the most impressive Android smartphones released to date, and this is not just my opinion, but that of almost everyone I've talked to about the phone. It has a fantastic build quality and finishing, one of the best displays we've seen, a powerful processor (regardless if it's the Exynos or Snapdragon version), a capable camera, and decent-to-amazing battery life.

So how would you like to win one from us and our friends over at Ting?

You've sure heard of Ting, the MVNO that only wants to charge you for what you use instead of offering you plans with plenty of bundled options that you may never need.

The GSM-LTE Unlocked Version Of The HTC 10 Will Work On Verizon After A Simple Radio Flash

The community over at XDA-Developers is a little less voracious these days. There are a lot of reasons: an ever-expanding selection of Android phones means it's harder to make a modding nexus for each one, general improvements in hardware and software make rooting less necessary, et cetera. But those tinkerers can still get some fantastic results. Case in point: it turns out that it's totally possible to get the unlocked HTC 10, currently being sold free of contracts and carriers from the HTC web store, to operate on Verizon.
