Google might replace the At A Glance widget with something better in Android 12

Microsoft is really fleshing out its mobile browser options. Last month the company published a Canary build of Edge to the Play Store, and it's following up with a Dev build today. That's three out of four of the release channels available as an Android version ... oddly, the Beta channel has yet to make its way onto the platform as a dedicated app listing, still relying on the Play Store beta system.

While we're all waiting for Google's revamped Wear OS to drop later this year, there's only one watch running Android worth picking up right now: Mobvoi's TicWatch Pro 3.

Google's confusing new Play Store tweak is rolling out widely

Google only recently redesigned the Play Store, getting rid of the hamburger menu and moving most of its menu entries to the account switcher in the top right corner. But it looks like the company isn't done revamping the distribution service. Reports of a revamped "My Apps" section surfaced last month, and we didn't like it one bit.

Any time a developer releases a new feature, the hope is that users will find it helpful. That isn't always the case. For example: the new tab groups feature in Chrome for Android, which is now the default behavior after being introduced in January. While the grouped tabs initially came with a chrome://flags option to turn it off, that option has been removed, and tab groups are now permanently enabled in all current versions of the browser.

This Google app is saying 'calculator' to the 500M club as it earns 1B-installs badge

I'll be the first to admit math isn't my strong suit, which is why having a calculator always available on my phone is such a lifesaver. Google's calculator app is preinstalled on plenty of Android devices, so it's no surprise that it's finally surpassed one billion installs on the Play Store. If my math is correct, that's double the number of installs since 2019.
