Skype 4.5 Introduces A Floating Picture-In-Picture View For Android Tablets And Other Enhancements

It's 2013, and chances are that someone has asked you to make a Skype video chat at some point or another. This isn't too all-consuming on PCs, where a user can fire up their webcam and tuck the Skype client away in the corner. Anyone using an Android device, on the other hand, has had to devote the entire screen to the conversation. But thanks to the latest Skype update, many of us will be freed from the burden of giving a video chat our undivided attention, as we will now have the ability to tuck the entire session away into the corner.

Sony SmartWatch 2 App Updated With Fast Scrolling Notifications, Auto-Brightness, Stopwatch, And More Watch Faces

Sony has been surprisingly quiet on the smartwatch front since launching its SmartWatch 2.

A quick update to the Android app on the Google Play Store has given the device a few expanded capabilities.

DuoLingo Android App Updated To 2.0 With An Updated UI And A Slimmed-Down Install Size

The free DuoLingo service already has an army of aspirational bilingual supporters, but that's no reason to rest on your laurels. Today the developers have updated the Android app with a few changes to the user interface. The basics of the app have only been tweaked slightly - a digital spit and polish, if you will - but extra screens added to the end of lessons and progression screens should help users get a feel for where they are in the program.

SoundSeeder Does Its Best Chromecast Impression, Adds Google Play Music Streaming In The Latest Update

A few months ago we told you about a nifty music streaming app called SoundSeeder, which lets you stream audio directly from one Android device to another over WiFi. At the time I mentioned that it was a cool idea, but the fact that it didn't allow users to stream Google Music songs over the connection was a bit of a let down. Developer JekApps took my complaint under advisement, and let us know that there's a new version that enables Google Play Music streaming after all.

Titanium Backup Updated To Support Android Runtime (ART) In KitKat

For a lot of users, Titanium Backup is one of the first Android apps they install on a new device or ROM. So it's no surprise that a few of them were dismayed when they tried to do so on the Nexus 5 (or one of a growing number of updated Android 4.4 devices) with the fancy new Android Runtime enabled, and found that Titanium would crash. The developer has updated the app to 6.1.4.1 in short order, and it should now run in both ART and Dalvik.
