Latest SafetyNet improvements threaten to finally kill Magisk Hide

Magisk and Google have been playing a game of cat and mouse for years: Google's SafetyNet technology is supposed to be triggered when it notices a rooted device, but MagiskHide does its best to keep banking apps, Pokémon Go, and other root-despising applications going, no matter what you do with your phone. However, the latest update to SafetyNet, apparently rolling out via the Play Services, seems to put an end to the game permanently. Magisk developer John Wu isn't convinced he'll find a solution that would keep his tool intact once Google fully implements the change.

Speed limits are back for Google Maps users in several countries (Updated)

In the last year, Google Maps began a wide roll-out of visible speed limits during navigation in dozens of countries.

Gmail adds setting to store multiple signature options

One size email signature might not fit all. You probably don't want to end a casual message with your long business signature, or if you regularly communicate with someone in a different language, it might be a little strange to end your message in your native language. Thankfully, Gmail now lets you store multiple signatures and pick between them from the compose window.

Hands on with Samsung's big Good Lock 2020 update (Update: Navstar is back)

Samsung launched Good Lock back when the Galaxy S7 was the latest and greatest, and since then, it's become a staple of the Samsung experience. Initially allowing users to test new features from future Android updates, Good Lock soon evolved into a tool for tweaking and customizing your Galaxy smartphone just the way you like it.

This much variety may seem daunting at first, so let's talk about everything Good Lock has to offer, and how to get the most out of it.

Microsoft has offered a remote desktop solution for Android users for many years. For the past 5 years give or take, the company also gave it a companion beta app for users on the bleeding edge to test out new features.
