Live Caption was one of the highlight feature of Android 10 when Google unveiled it at Google I/O 2019. Its ability to generate accurate real-time captions regardless of audio source continues to blow us away — and it works offline, too. Google's Pixel phones were the first to get it, then it followed by expansion to other Android smartphones. Google announced yesterday that Live Caption is available to everyone using Chrome, and with some digging in the Chromium Gerrit, it looks like Chromebooks won't have to wait much longer to get it.

In a post to the official blog a few days ago, Feedly announced a new beta – version 15 – which quickly found itself released to the Play Store. The service, which has greeted over three million new users since the announcement of Google Reader's impending doom, promises a painless transition to its own backend solution once Reader closes officially in July. While said backend may not have taken hold yet, the developers have been hard at work making the app itself better and better in response to its users.
Its most recent update takes focus mainly on bug fixes and UX issues, but adds at least one neat feature – better support for comics. Read More
Making it perhaps a little too easy to access Tosh.0's full "online experience," MTV Networks (on behalf of Comedy Central) recently released the official Tosh.0 app to Google's Play Store, adding a suggestion that users ditch their computers, because after all, "opening browser windows is for government workers and exchange students."
The app allows users to immerse themselves in a Tosh-centric world of internet interest, reading posts from the Tosh.0 blog, checking out Tosh's latest caption challenge, and watching videos from all seasons of Tosh.0, including everything from Web Redemptions to Video Breakdowns and more.
The official Tosh.0 app also allows users to get "exclusive" alerts from the show, quickly share Tosh.0 videos on Facebook, and keep a sharp eye on Daniel Tosh's Twitter feed. Read More
The Mobile World Congress is right around the corner (David an I are packing our bags as we speak), and HTC decided to tease us ahead of time with a picture of a phone outline and a number 5. They didn't have to spend much on making that one - this is literally the simplest and least interesting teaser I've seen in a while (did you get a bunch of new interns recently?):
Since HTC doesn't want to make it fun, we decided to give it a go ourselves:
- MWC starts in 5 days.
- Could it be a 5" HTC phone?
