Google News shows live scores, match highlights, and schedules for sports teams [APK Download]

Two weeks ago, Google News got an update to version 5.5, bringing a dark theme option to the app. But since the rollout was slow, we didn't get an official changelog until yesterday. In it, new features were mentioned for sports teams, but they were nowhere to be found. It seems they were dependent on a server-side switch, because it isn't until this morning that these new sports options started showing up for us.

[Update: It's back] YouTube TV goes ded in the middle of fancy soccer game

Yes, you read that right: YouTube TV has gone down amidst a major sports game yet again. This last happened during Game 2 of the NBA's Eastern Conference Finals, and it seems like Google's streaming service just isn't built to handle all of the World Cup fans either.

Google app v7.24 beta prepares floating sports scores, Doodles in the search box, Project Valyrian, home automation, and much more [APK Teardown]

A beta update to the Google app has been making the rounds. As usual, there's not much new to see after installing this release, but many changes are awaiting Google to flip a switch before going live. Also following the usual pattern, there's a teardown of the APK that provides plenty of hints about what's to come. Version 7.24 reveals plans for a floating bubble with current sports scores that remains visible on top of other apps, an effect for the Google search box, a mysterious new project called Valyrian, assorted follow-ups for the Pixel Buds, home automation, and more.

[Update: Adding SportsNet New York, too] YouTube TV learns not to spoil the game, expands to Charleston, WV and SC

Spoilers suck. Whether you're enjoying some books and the TV series gets ahead of itself (Game of Thrones, you're dead to me), or your friends just can't resist revealing the twist at the end of a good movie, spoilers seriously ruin your appreciation for something. It's about the journey as much as the destination, right? So sportsball fans that subscribe to YouTube TV can now configure for scores to be hidden in the YouTube TV interface. Google has also expanded its TV service to Charleston, South Carolina and West Virginia.

Fossil Q Control review: A good smartwatch, but not a good value

At this point, Fossil is probably pushing Android Wear more than any other company. It's continuing to release smartwatches under many of its brands, including Skagen, MisfitKate Spade, Michael Kors, and others. The third-generation Fossil Q watches first went on sale in September of last year, with the most notable improvement being the fully round screens (as opposed to the 'flat tire' displays that older watches used).

Another third-generation Fossil Q watch arrived in November of last year - the Q Control. It's the first sports-oriented smartwatch under the Fossil brand, and its design stands out from the company's other watches.

A new update to Google's Allo app began rolling out to users today, bringing it to version 16.

While we keep looking – and waiting for that web client – there is quite a bit in this update that warrants a teardown. There are a lot of small tweaks and features on the horizon, so let's get straight to it.
