Quibi reminds you it's not dead with new Android TV app

Quibi launched earlier this year as the streaming service intended for bite-sized entertainment while you're out and about with your phone, but now that many of us are at home far more often, that selling point hasn't helped the company much. The mobile apps already supported AirPlay and Chromecast support, but now Quibi has dedicated apps for several TV platforms.

Portrait Light in Google Photos is rolling out to older Pixels

Portrait Light was announced along with the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5. It's one more neat Pixel camera feature that lets you manually control light in portrait pics and adjust face brightness as you see fit, either for a more dramatic and contrasting effect or to balance things out in poorly-lit photos. The feature was said to be coming to older Pixels too, and now it's there on the Pixel 2, 3, and 4.

Gboard adds a bunch of hilarious and disturbing emoji mash-up stickers (APK Download)

In early 2020, Google began testing a new emoji mashup feature that suggests a few funky stickers each time you try to insert a regular emoji in Gboard.

Thankfully, there's a new version of the app that's compatible with Google's new hardware, just in time for launch.
