If a recent sighting on Android Gerrit is to be believed, the process of installing updates on Android devices could be receiving a significant speed boost.

OnePlus 6 and 6T Android 10 update rolling out again as Oxygen OS 10.0.1 (Updated)

Reports have been trickling in for the last couple of hours that the stable Android 10 update for the OnePlus 6T has been rolling out — apparently without any fanfare or an associated announcement at the OnePlus forums, as is customary. In addition to bringing all the Android 10 features you can expect, the OxygenOS 10 update for the 6T also includes the company's Game Space feature and the "Contextual display" ambient display feature.

Call of Duty: Mobile update adding controller support, zombie mode, and more

An official Call of Duty: Mobile account on Reddit has revealed that a significant update is coming to the game later today. It's slated to arrive at 21:00 PST, and this update will include controller support, a new zombie mode, and new maps. A new Battle Pass is also coming, but it won't arrive until November 25th. Back when I covered the release of Call of Duty: Mobile in October, I was delighted with the shooter, though the missing controller support was a sticking point. Thankfully Activision has been listening to its fans, so the announcement for today's update is indeed very welcome news.

Samsung Music comes to Android Auto [APK Download]

Samsung phones come with a pre-installed music player. Apart from supporting local music playback, it also integrates with Spotify, which lets you combine your personal library with the one from the streaming service. However, on Android Auto, you had to resort to the dedicated Spotify app, as Samsung Music never worked with Google's in-car software experience. That has now changed with the latest update to Samsung's app, which enables playback and control on your vehicle's dashboard and brings support for Android 10.

Play Store and Galaxy Store Pokémon Go installs can no longer use separate accounts on a single device

In classic Niantic fashion, the studio has upset fans of one of its games once again, and this time around, the kerfuffle surrounds the Galaxy Store version of Pokémon GO. Apparently, before the update to version 0.157.0 on the Galaxy Store, users could play both the Play Store version of the game in tandem with the Galaxy Store version when using separate accounts, all from the same device. Clearly, this loophole was unintentional, and so was taken advantage of by cheaters by running two apps at the same time, but there was also a legitimate use for families that share devices, which is why so many people are upset with this change.

Oops: Some Pixel 3 owners have received internal November OTA system updates

Every once in a while, Google mistakenly rolls out software not meant for the public. These dogfood builds contain experimental features the company wants to test internally even before letting them loose on beta users. It seems that such a confidential OTA update rolled out to some Pixel 3 and 3 XL users over the last couple of hours, as we've received word that people already got the November security patch accompanied by a note saying "CONFIDENTIAL INTERNAL ONLY."
