As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues, health officials have one advisory above all others: you need to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds to make sure they're virus-free.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most of us have to stay quarantined at home. Whether you're working, catching up with friends and family, or relaxing and watching a movie, you'll need a stable connection throughout your home to avoid disruptions.

While many people seem to have developed an aversion to Stadia, I personally still absolutely love Google's vision for cloud gaming. Sure, a lot of promised features haven't made it into the product yet, but it's slowly coming together. I'm surprised again and again how well it performs, just like others on the Android Police team.

It was ultimately dropped in favor of the HTC Dream's design, which was Android's first shipping, consumer-facing product, but Sooner technically predates it. And if you'd like to get your hands on one, a small pile of them just appeared on eBay for $200 each.
Pixel leak season has started, and details surrounding Google's upcoming mid-range phone have started to trickle out. The previous Pixel 3a was a great phone, and that leaves the Pixel 4a with some awfully big shoes to fill.

Hot on the heels of the Nokia event that brought us the new Android Go-equipped Nokia 1.3, Google has taken the opportunity to talk about the new Camera Go pre-installed on that phone. Similar to other Go apps, it has been created with low-end hardware in mind while retaining some of the features that make Google's image processing so great. Read More
