Google Photos v3.15 prepares to add Likes to shared photos and videos, exporting Motion Stills as GIFs, and adds another layer to Austin's cryptic clues [APK Teardown]

A fresh round of updates to the Google Photos app began rolling out this week. Aside from a few small tweaks to wording, you're probably not going to see any noticeable changes as a result of installing the latest version, but as is often the case, there are at least several topics to cover in a teardown. We can look forward to counting up Likes on our shared photos, easier sharing of Motion Stills, and of course, the wider rollout of Google Lens. Also making a return appearance is Austin's infamous mysteryer feature.

Google Play Games v5.5 adds Arcade tab to help you find your next game [APK Download]

When an update to Play Games v5.3 came out with a redesigned look back in November, it was missing one big element: Discovery. Users could check out their achievements, browse games they own, and even play some brand new mini-games, but there was barely anything in the app to help you find new games. With the release of v5.5, there's a brand new "Arcade" tab dedicated to just that.

It's no mystery that YouTube will be absorbing Google Play Music – that much we've known since July – but it's seven months later and we still don't really know any details outside of some rumors about a rebranding to YouTube Remix. The latest update to the YouTube Music app might shed a little bit of light on what we can expect regarding the apps we'll actually be using.

Google Play Music v8.7 adds option to disable album art on the lock screen [APK Download]

If there was any one common statement to be made about the subjects of music and smartphones, it's that they're both very personal to each of us. In the same way that some people prefer listening to metal, there are also those that insist on a very sparse homescreen. We might listen to EDM just like we might set up our wallpaper to cycle every hour. If you've taken the time to tailor your phone experience, you might not be happy about a common feature of music players that allows them to temporarily replace your lock screen background with album art.

Product Hunt'ers get 2 new apps to browse their favorite site and catch up on tech stories

Product Hunt is one of the sites I always hear about and come across but never dared visit more than a few seconds each time because I knew I would get sucked in eternally. I love new products, be it gadgets or services, so becoming invested in a site whose sole purpose is to surface these to me is like my kryptonite. I have neither the money nor the time to allow myself such a luxury. But for those of you who like the site and can control your urges to buy/try/read everything on there, there are now* two apps to try out on Android.

Google app v7.22 beta prepares page for purchases through Assistant, revised search widget editor, and more [APK Teardown]

Google has begun rolling out the latest update to its signature search app to the beta channel. Version 7.22 appears to be a bit less ambitious than most recent updates, as existing features don't seem to be changing and most of the upcoming features aren't getting any major changes. Actually, most of the teardown is about follow-ups to things we've already known about. Nevertheless, there are new topics to discuss, so let's get right into it.

Google Pay Send v22 rolls out with branding changes and enables payment reminders [APK Download]

If you were around for yesterday's activities, you've already seen that Android Pay has been switched over to the new Google Pay branding, along with some upgrades to both the look and function. As part of the announcement, we were told that the Google Wallet app would be undergoing a short term rebranding of its own, taking on the name Google Pay Send. That version is now here, and unsurprisingly, it has been given some minor visual touch-ups. But not only that, it actually also got the reminders feature that was recently spotted in a teardown.

Gboard v7.0 Beta adds email auto-completion, Chinese and Korean language support, universal media search, and more [APK Download]

Gboard almost never fails to add an assortment of new, and sometimes unusual features with each update. The latest version bump doesn't disappoint. In this release, Gboard can now auto-complete email addresses from your contact list, adds support for Chinese and Korean keyboards, and launches a new universal media search feature that brings together emoji, stickers, and GIFs. There are also some other smaller improvements that will make it easier to set up multiple keyboards within a language and perhaps get suggestions and autocorrections for languages you've never even set up.
