SwiftKey adds neural network predictions to the stable version of its keyboard

SwiftKey released an early experimental version of its neural network-powered keyboard as a standalone alpha app late last year. At the time, we were pretty impressed with the quality of the predictions. Now, the company (which has since been acquired by Microsoft) has updated the main app with new neural network features.

Google made some cute advertisements for Duo, seriously they're adorable

One trend I've noticed with Google over the years is that they don't usually advertise on TV. There's been some commercials for the Nexus devices over the years, and recently some ads for Google Photos, but not much else. Google just uploaded a series of ads for Google Duo, their new video chat application, and they're absolutely adorable. Check them out:

Remix OS now available as a virtual machine for Windows PCs

Jide's Remix OS has turned a lot of heads in the last couple of years, thanks to an interesting initial tablet offering and subsequent easy-to-install software for both PCs and a few Nexus tablets and even some retail hardware. The modified Android software, which uses a desktop-style window system for apps, is surprisingly robust and easy to use. Jide's latest move is to offer Remix as a virtual machine package, allowing Windows desktops, laptops, and tablets to run the Android ROM in a dedicated window alongside desktop applications.

Beautiful 2D puzzler Pavilion makes its way to the SHIELD TV for $10

There are a lot of PC and console games that have made their way to NVIDIA's SHIELD set-top box, but I believe that Pavilion is the first to get an exclusive launch on the platform before making its way elsewhere. The 2D puzzle-adventure game from Visiontrick, which mixes elements of old point-and-click adventure games with more modern fare like Monument Valley, is now on the Play Store for ten bucks. It'll make its way to the PS4, Vita, Steam, and Humble stores later this month.

Google releases The Bohemian Rhapsody Experience, a VR app in cooperation with Queen

Bohemian Rhapsody is, all told, a pretty cool song, so it only seems fitting it gets a VR experience recognizing its legendary status in music history. Google's released an app that's been developed in cooperation with Queen - that's Brian May and Roger Taylor, out of the four original members - and, as with many things Queen do, it's great.

YouTube is testing new Community feature for supplementary content

I'll admit, YouTube has added some strange features lately, and at first glance this seemed like yet another useless addition. Starting with a few select channels, a new 'Community' tab will appear on the channel's profile, both on mobile apps and the desktop site. This essentially works like a social feed for the channel, allowing content creators to share text, images, GIFs, livestreams, and more straight through the YouTube app. You can even choose to receive push notifications for Community posts.

[Deal Alert] Motorsport Manager 0.10 worldwide, LapseIt Pro 0.10 in UK, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Australia, Russia

We love on-sale games and apps here at Android Police, and we've got another two for you, with LapseIt Pro on sale for 0.10 in the UK, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Australia, and Russia, while Motorsport Manager is available for the same price worldwide.

LapseIt is a camera app which makes creating timelapses and stop-motion videos easy. In my testing, although I found the UI a little... cumbersome, the timelapses the app creates are excellent. The gap between each independent frame can be changed, in either milliseconds, seconds, or minutes - the default is set to 2 seconds. There's lot of other settings as well, including White Balance, Color effects, Scene Mode options, and even a buggy, in-development Material UI that did not work on my Nexus 6P.
