Stadia's Black Fridays sales are here, including 60% off the recently-added Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

Family sharing finally arrived, iOS support is (once again) in development, some YouTube Premium subscribers received Stadia Premiere Edition for free, and Assassin's Creed Valhalla was a day-one release.

Google created a Mandalorian AR experience, only available on select 5G phones (APK Download)

It looks like 5G is the standard of choice in a galaxy far, far away, as Google and Lucasfilm have teamed up to create a Mandalorian AR experience that is only available on 5G Pixel phones and "other select 5G Android" handsets. Interestingly enough, you don't actually need to be on a 5G connection to get in on the fun, and when we sideloaded the app to older, 4G-only phones, we noticed that the experience is running just fine.

Garmin channels the Force, releases pair of Star Wars-themed Legacy Saga smartwatches

After introducing what seems like a boatload of new products at IFA 2019 last month, Garmin is introducing two more: the Legacy Saga Star Wars-themed smartwatches.

AR Stickers v1.3 reduces app size by 86% by making Star Wars and Stranger Things packs optional [APK Download]

AR Stickers launched with a handful of sticker packs, all of which were included in the main app's download. Over time, however, Google kept making each pack separate apps that you'd have to download to use, leaving 'Star Wars' and 'Stranger Things' as the only pre-installed ones. Now, Google has spun those two off as well, reducing the AR Stickers app size from 65MB to just 8.5MB.

Back in June of 2017 Star Wars: Rivals was released as a soft launch title in Australia and New Zealand. At that time I did a brief hands-on with the cover-based corridor shooter. Well, it would appear an official launch is nearing because as of yesterday Disney announced that Star Wars: Rivals is now officially available for pre-registration. This sadly means that most people still won't be able to install the game. But I have some good news, there is a simple way to gain access to the title and download it right now.
