Now TWRP has arrived for quite a few devices, including a buttload of Xiaomi phones. We're talking about the Mi 2 and Mi 4, along with their various versions. There's the Redmi 3, Redmi Note 2, and even the Mi Pad. These make the list not long after the Redmi Note 3 did the same.

Samsung Milk VR Lets You Watch Virtual Reality Content On Your Phone Without Any Headset

Whether you bought a Gear VR headset when it launched, got a free one with your Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge, or don't have any Gear VR, you probably know about all of that sweet virtual reality content that Samsung is releasing on Milk VR and wishing you could experience it anywhere, regardless of whether you have a headset nearby.

That's what Samsung's latest app on the Play Store aims to do. Milk VR wants to bring virtual reality videos and experiences to your phone, headset optional. Of course the experience is going to be different: holding your phone in front of you and spinning it around in 360 degrees isn't as immersive or as "real" as strapping a headset to your face and jumping head first into other environments where you can intuitively control everything by moving around.

Verizon Announces Marshmallow Update For Galaxy S6 And S6 Edge

This is no April Fools joke: Verizon has updated the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge software pages with details of the Marshmallow OTAs for the two devices. They currently run Lollipop, so the update will be very welcome to S6 owners on Verizon; Samsung started to roll out Marshmallow for the S6 and S6 Edge in February, so Verizon isn't that far behind.
