The OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro are getting a pretty chill update

The OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro are getting a pretty chill update

OnePlus's latest flagships have had a bit of a rough launch. Reviews for both devices have been relatively positive, but an overhyped partnership with Hasselblad and the lack of timely updates have slowed the company's momentum. Meanwhile, reports that the OnePlus 9 Pro is prone to overheating have made any post-launch software version critical to improving the device. A new update is now making its way to both phones, but early reports suggest that this might not be the fix users were hoping to get.

Google has a plan to avoid another WebView crash catastrophe

Last month, a WebView bug became the biggest story in Android after users reported app crashes across all sorts of devices. Though a temporary solution was quickly discovered, a permanent update wasn't issued until the following day, leaving phones in a buggy state overnight. In response to this incident, Google has published a complete list of upcoming improvements it plans to implement to help ensure these types of crashes never happen again.

The OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro are getting another bug-squashing update

The OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro are getting another bug-squashing update

OnePlus's newest phones have only been officially available for a few days now, even if some buyers managed to get their devices before the pre-order period had ended. Since its event last month, the company has been working to ensure as stable an experience as possible when consumers unbox their new gadgets. Another update is following up on last week's launch-day patch, with a few additional stability improvements in tow.

OnePlus Nord's second Android 11 Open Beta arrives with a slew of bug fixes

OnePlus launched the first Android 11-based Open Beta for the Nord at the beginning of the year, and now the company is back with the second beta. It's bringing along a slew of welcome bug fixes and interface optimizations, but as far as we can tell, there weren't any deal-breaking issues in the first Open Beta that needed fixing. Here's to hoping it'll remain that way in the second release.

Doom and Doom II updated with better touch controls, adjustable FPS limits, expanded controller support, and more

Doom and Doom II updated with better touch controls, adjustable FPS limits, expanded controller support, and more

Bethesda recently updated the Android versions of Doom and Doom II to bring a bunch of new features to the titles, such as tweaked touch controls, support for adjustable frame rate limits, not to mention physical controller support along with mouse and keyboard support. Heck, Bethesda even added a toggle for Vsync (a rarity for a mobile game), for those of you that would like to reduce either title's input latency. So no matter how you slice it, it would appear that Bethesda has actually improved both games, though it could be argued that all of these features should have been available in both titles from the jump.

Snapseed is still alive, gets its first update since 2018 (APK Download) (Update: First 64-bit version)

Snapseed is still alive, gets its first update since 2018 (APK Download) (Update: First 64-bit version)

When it comes to killing unsuccessful projects, Google is ruthless. The company got rid of its dying social media platform Google+ and its beloved but superfluous Gmail alternative Inbox, and it's in the process of killing Play Music. We feared Snapseed would meet the same fate, as the app hasn't seen a new release since 2018, but that has changed just today: The brand-new version 2.19.1 has surfaced on the Play Store, though it only brings along bug fixes.

Android Messages updated again, reinstating the FAB and potentially fixing the notification bug [APK Download]

Android Messages updated again, reinstating the FAB and potentially fixing the notification bug [APK Download]

Google's stock SMS app for Android should be an undramatic affair, but it's been in the news more than you might expect recently. This is largely due to a bug that has been preventing notifications for many people, and that's a pretty big problem for a messaging app. The decision to remove the FAB (floating action button) in the last update has been controversial, too. In the latest update, it seems everything is back to "normal."
