[Update: Available to all devs] In-app updates API will let Android apps update while you use them

Android applications can have issues when you're not on the latest version – especially ones that integrate with external services (social media, email, etc). Many apps, like Snapchat, have built-in checks to determine if they are out of date, and prompt users to install the latest version from the Play Store.

MX Player adds Chromecast support, but only for its online streaming content

If you're getting too giddy about the title of this post, I'll start by advising you to hold your horses. MX Player, one of the most popular video players on Android, has finally added Chromecast support, but it's not exactly where and how we wanted it to be.

[Update: New APK] Google Photos update fixes buggy dark mode on Android Q

Using beta software is more often than not a gamble. It's nice to be able to check out all the new features, but some things may be terribly broken. That's the case with Android Q's universal dark mode implementation. As early adopters noticed, there's no toggle to easily enable or disable it, meaning users were stuck with whatever they had chosen on Pie before updating (unless they used adb to change it). Google Photos was one of the most obvious victims of Q's dark mode. The app looked like a chimera of light and dark, but the latest update has now fixed most of it.
