Bug in Google Photos removes tap-and-drag gesture for multiple selection (Update: Fixed)

A recent update to Google Photos is annoying a lot of users by removing the super handy tap-and-drag for selecting multiple images.

OnePlus TV gets Netflix app and new improved remote controller

OnePlus marked its entry into the TV market this September with a pair of TV sets, one of which had a fancy motorized soundbar retracting from its bottom. Both models have so far remained exclusive to India, where they support a bunch of local streaming services, aside from Prime Video, though the Netflix app was a notable omission. That's changed now as OnePlus is bringing the app to its TV range via a system update, while newer units will ship with Netflix preinstalled.

Google Calendar app finally lets you move events between calendars

The Google Calendar Android app has always lagged behind its counterpart on the web, though it did catch up a bit last year when Google introduced event copying and duplicating to the application. It's still never been possible to outright pass events from one calendar to another, making appointment organization on mobile a chore – until now. Google is flipping a server-side switch for some people that finally lets them simply move an event.
