Samsung Galaxy S10 series receives One UI 2.0 beta 6 with December security patch

Samsung has been testing its flavor of Android 10, One UI 2.0, for about a month already across its latest flagship phones. Just a few days after the Galaxy S10 series received the fifth beta, the company is already pushing out the sixth pre-release to its testers on the S10, S10+, and S10e. As the software is nearing its graduation to the stable release channel, there are fewer and fewer changes, and so only some bug fixes and a promotion to the December security patch found their way into this update.

(Update: New hardware details) Samsung confirms existence of Galaxy Home Mini, solicits beta testers in Korea

Samsung's Bixby-powered 'Galaxy Home' smart speaker has become a running gag in the tech world, as Samsung has barely mentioned it since it was announced in 2018 (alongside the Galaxy Note9). While the original speaker is still slated for a Q3 2019 release, a smaller version passed through the FCC a few months ago, and now it's going out to beta testers in Samsung's home country of South Korea.

Google Cloud Print will shut down after 2020, following 10-year beta period

Printers are universally terrible, but Google Cloud Print was a noble (and largely successful) effort to make them better. The service allowed people to connect printers to their Google account, allowing print jobs to be sent over the web effortlessly, instead of dealing with drivers and other time-consuming utilities. Sadly, Cloud Print will be laid to rest next year, with the service completely shutting down in January 2021.

Google Assistant now works better with G Suite accounts

One of the most common complaints we hear whenever a new Google product arrives (besides the pile of "when is it getting shut down" unoriginal jokes) is that G Suite users either can't try the new product at all, or there is limited functionality. Assistant has historically been extremely limited for G Suite accounts, but some of that is changing today.
