Android N Dev Preview 2 Adds A Pitch Slider Option To Text-To-Speech Settings

For those who find Google’s synthetic speech-to-text voice somewhat robotic and grating… well, there’s really nothing that can be done about it. But if you prefer said voice to be higher or lower (or you just want it to sound really funny on those few occasions that you use it), the second release of the Android N developer preview offers it as an option.

[Update: Streaming Now] The Coachella Music Festival Is Streaming For Free This Weekend Exclusively On YouTube

Music festivals are about making sound, and lots of it. But hearing is far from the only sense assaulted during days spent rushing from one performance to another. Bodies bump against bodies. Drinks and sweat soak shirts and moisten skin. Colors and bright lights pierce eyes from all directions. To get the full experience, you must go in person.

But if it's all about the music for you, staying home isn't bad. Coachella is giving you that option this weekend.

Linguee's Multilingual Dictionary Comes To The Play Store With A Well Defined Feature Set

Knowing one language is for chumps. Oops, I might have alienated a huge portion of our readership right there. But seriously, as someone who can read, write, and fluently speak three languages, I swear by the versatility and opportunities that this kind of skill enables. I wouldn't be here on Android Police if I had stuck to my mother tongue, would I?

But there's a tax that comes with multilingualism: you often find yourself stuck on a word in one language when you just need it in another. And that's why I love multilingual dictionaries: they make it possible to quickly get the word that's been on the tip of my tongue.

Google Announces Custom 'Live Cases' For Nexus 6, 5X, And 6P—Previously Leaked As Google Workshop

You might vaguely recall an exclusive post on AP a few years back about "Google Workshop." It was to be an online tool for creating custom cases for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013). Oh, those were the days. Well, it turns out Google Workshop is real, but they're called Live Cases now. You can pick up your very own custom Live Case for the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, or Nexus 6P with a photo or stylized Maps screenshot for $35.

Headup Games Brings Silhouette-Heavy 2D Platformer 'Toby: The Secret Mine' To Android

Toby: The Secret Mine is a relatively new indie game inspired by Limbo. The similarity is immediately apparent. Both are 2D platformers. Both embrace heavy use of silhouettes.

But as they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and we welcome more admirers making their way into the Play Store.

Video: First Impressions Of The HTC 10

While we've got our textual first impressions of the HTC 10 up and available for you, we've also got them in easy-to-digest video form! Mark Burstiner takes a quick look at the newest flagship from HTC in our latest set of moving pictures we have placed on the YouTube.

To give you the quick rundown: the HTC 10 is coming out here in the US in early May, and the unlocked version with 32GB of storage will sticker for $699.
