In typical Google fashion, the 3a and 3a XL have already been the subject of full in-the-flesh leaks (more than once) so by this point we know exactly what to expect from them. As if further confirmation were needed, we're now seeing official-looking renders for the first time.

Google Photos is testing a completely useless Printing tab

As any Android enthusiast will know, Google loves testing new UIs and features on random users. Sometimes the changes are welcome, but other times... not so much.

How to get Call Screen to work with your Google Voice number

Without a doubt, one of the best Pixel features is Call Screen. Ever since its announcement at last year's Pixel 3 event, and its subsequent arrival on my Pixel 2 XL, I've really wanted to see it work with Google Voice. However, since those calls ring through the Voice app itself, Call Screen never has a chance to activate. So, what if we route those calls through the main Phone app? Turns out that works — you can get Call Screen on your Voice calls!

Verizon will offer YouTube TV bundles, teases competitive pricing

It's 2019 and cable TV is still losing out to over-the-top services. Verizon is one of the victims in the race with its Fios TV business bleeding subscribers while the likes of YouTube TV are picking them right up.

[Update: More] Animated Google Doodle shows up in homescreen search widget and Discover feed

Doodles are becoming one of the rare manifestations of Google's funky side. With the company becoming more serious and losing its witty approach to things, Doodles still remind us, from time to time, that there is still a playful child hiding inside that grown-up adult.
