17 new (and 1 WTF) Android games from the week of September 14, 2020

Welcome to the roundup of the new Android games that went live in the Play Store or were spotted by us in the previous week or so. Today I have a new board game adaptation from Asmodee Digital. We also have a fantastic 8-bit platformer where you play as a spider and an artful philosophical game from the creators of Homo Machina. So without further ado, here are the new and notable Android games released during the week of September 14th, 2020.

How to turn your smartphone into a professional Zoom webcam: Mounts, lights, and more

How to turn your smartphone into a professional Zoom webcam: Mounts, lights, and more

While you'd think that the world's webcam supply chain would have caught up with demand from the many millions of folks working from home by now, you'd be wrong. Logitech is still sold out of every model it makes online, and questionable cheap webcams popping up here and there on Amazon probably aren't a wise investment. But you do have a professional webcam at home, you just may have forgotten about it: your smartphone. With a few simple gadgets, you make your phone into a pro videoconferencing rig in a snap, and be the envy of everyone at the virtual office.

These are the apps the Android Police staff can't live without

We've covered the best new Android apps and games for years, but we've only occasionally talked about our personal favorites. It's high time we did a roundup of the Android Police staff's top applications, don't you think?

For this roundup, some of the fine writers at Android Police have selected their favorite Android apps. We've excluded applications and services that are incredibly popular, like Gmail or Spotify, in favor of software that might be new to some people.

We've updated our best-of-the-year game roundup to add in some of our favorite titles from 2020, with 15 new games rounding out our list. If you're running out of movies and TV to stream, books to read, and hobbies to distract yourself, there's probably a mobile game or two you'll be interested in here. This is a hand-selected list, and whether you prefer premium releases or free-to-play titles, you should be able to find more than a few games to suit your needs. I've also included an honorable mentions list at the bottom of the page for the titles that didn't quite make the cut, and I even have a best-of WTF listing to really round things out.

Here are 11 features that need to be in Android 11

Here are 11 features that need to be in Android 11

Last year's Android 10 was a massive release. It had a system-wide dark theme, updated navigation gestures, dozens of privacy changes, and much more. However, stock Android still has a few missing features compared to the customized Android builds found on devices from third-party manufacturers, and there's even a few iOS features that would be nice to see.

The first preview builds of Android 11 will likely show up in the coming months, no doubt with even more features to make our smartphones and tablets more useful. Here are 11 changes we'd love to see added to Android 11, in no particular order.

Grand Mountain Adventure’s huge snowboarding overhaul lands today (Update)

Grand Mountain Adventure’s huge snowboarding overhaul lands today (Update)

A year ago, I wrote about the preview build for Grand Mountain Adventure, a gorgeous skiing game that most definitely deserved the attention. In March of this year, the game was officially launched on the Google Play Store and has so far amassed over 300,000 downloads with a solid 4.4-star rating. Suffice to say it's a quality release, and over the previous weekend, one of the developers created a post on Reddit that outlined an upcoming update that will add in snowboarding, twin-tip skiing, and maybe even a few new mountains.

Football Manager 2020 arrives on the Play Store in two flavors, Mobile and Touch

Football Manager 2020 arrives on the Play Store in two flavors, Mobile and Touch

Last year I covered the releases of Sega's Football Manager Mobile and Touch management games, and it would appear that it's that time of year again since Football Manager 2020 Mobile and Football Manager 2020 Touch have been officially arrived on the Google Play Store. These yearly tandem releases offer similar yet separate gameplay mechanics. The Mobile title exists as a tweaked mobile version themed after the PC and console experience, and the Touch version is a slimmed-down affair that's a little more suitable for play on tablets and quick sessions. Both of these titles require an upfront payment, much like a premium release, though in-app purchases are still included.

Disney+ launches early in the Netherlands, available as a free trial until November release

Disney+ is launching on November 12 in the US, but in a surprise move, the company is allowing residents of The Netherlands to sign up for a limited pilot phase starting today. It will be free to use there until it officially goes live in a couple of months. For now, the catalog appears to be limited, though there are some surprises. It's safe to assume that Disney will be adding more series and movies ahead of the full release.
