[Update: It's happening!] Verizon Galaxy S7 and S7 edge receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update (for real this time)

Over a month ago, Verizon toyed with Galaxy S7 and S7 edge owners' hearts by saying that the Android 8.0 Oreo update was rolling out, when in reality it had simply posted the wrong changelog. However, Verizon has again updated its support pages for the S7 and S7 edge, presumably for real this time.

Gears of War is coming to Android with a Funko Pop! skin

The Gears of War franchise is coming to Android, but it's not going to offer what you would expect from the series. Over the weekend at E3 Microsoft announced Gears Pop!, and the game will combine Funko's cutesy Pop! vinyl figures with the Gears of War franchise in order to create something new and exciting for mobile. Sadly we'll have to wait until next year to play it, so make sure you don't get too excited just yet.

A new version of the Android Messages app slowly began to circulate over the weekend. As usual, there doesn't seem to be anything visibly different in this update, but it does contain bits and pieces suggesting there's plenty of work going on in preparation for new features.

Android P DP3 simplifies Do Not Disturb settings, includes notification/popup to warn you of changes

Do Not Disturb mode is an increasingly vital part of the Android OS as far as I'm concerned. Advanced "digital wellbeing" features are all well and good, but the simplicity of being able to tell my phone to shut up for a little while is something I'm using more and more. It seems that every new version of Android alters how DND works — sometimes for the better, sometimes worse. Google has made significant changes to DND in each Developer Preview of Android P, and the latest beta makes further alterations and includes a new notification to warn you of certain differences.

Thankfully for Chrome OS users, a new commit reveals SMS Connect is one step closer to going live.
