Spotify lets you edit your profile from the mobile app

Spotify is one of the most popular music streaming services, and with good reason. It has the best algorithms for guessing what new music you'll like from its vast catalog. Another great feature that Spotify has to offer is its social integration. If you want, your friends will be able to see what you're listening to so that they can check it out. Until now, you've only been able to change your profile picture and username on the website, but as of this week, you can edit your profile from the mobile app too.

Google Camera 7.4 leak suggests 4K 60fps video recording support

Thanks to Google's pioneering role in image processing, Pixel phones are among the best when it comes to photography. That doesn't translate to video recordings, though, which are noticeably worse than the ones you can create with, say, an iPhone. Google has also chosen to limit 4K recording to 30 fps on the Pixel 4, citing a lack of interest from users, despite other manufacturers providing 4K 60fps without problems. It looks like the company might reconsider this decision, as evidence in a leaked Google Camera APK has surfaced that it might be working on a 4K 60fps mode.

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.

Of course, puzzles will play a significant role in your progression to ultimately restore a young girl's lost memories.

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. Since its release, there's been a wide range of upgrades, downgrades, and, in some cases, the feature disappearing altogether. Following an earlier disappearance, it seems users in the UK may finally have their speed limits back.
