HTC isn't doing particularly well these days, and the few people out there who purchased a U12+ likely weren't too pleased with the last bit of news about their devices announced: 'CryptoKitties.' Luckily, HTC is releasing an update for the U12+, starting with the Taiwanese dual-SIM model and coming soon to US and European versions.

The default Chrome OS camera app now supports video recording

Chromebooks are mostly inexpensive devices, and as such we don't expect many of them to be able to do fancy things. They do tend to have cameras, though — they'd be pretty useless for video calling if they didn't. Every Chromebook comes with a rudimentary web app for the camera, similar to what you might see on Windows or MacOS machines.

Until now, the Chrome OS camera app has only been able to take photos, which is about as basic as it gets. The latest version (5.0.0) finally adds video recording. Open the app and you'll now see a video option next to the capture button.

Snapchat for Android now lets you send 60-second 'multi-snap' videos

For anyone who still uses Snapchat, recording and sharing video clips is probably a large part of the experience. Before now, it's only been possible to record videos of up to 10 seconds in length, as this kind of ties in with Snapchat's whole brevity thing.

VHS Camcorder App Enters The Play Store So You Can Record Crappy Video Like It's The 80s

I grew up in the 90s. We recorded home videos using a camcorder, and even looking at the footage on our fat, pre-HD TV, the picture quality left much to be desired.

But now that we have crisp 1080p recordings on flatscreen TVs, iOS users have flocked to the VHS Camcorder app as a way to recreate static-y, warped-looking footage from two or three decades ago.

tinyCam Monitor Pro v6.2 Brings Built-In Web Server Enabling Remote Playback Of Recordings, And More

tinyCam recently made the big leap to version six dot oh, dragging along a new icon and material design. On the functionality front, we saw the introduction of 24/7 background video recording. This allowed users to keep recording long after they've switched their attention to another app.

With version 6.2, the developer has added in an internal web server that lets users record video on one device and remotely access them from another. For someone who already has multiple Android phones and tablets lying around, this is a cheap way to make an NVR.

This may be the primary new feature, but the lengthy changelogs include a few other noteworthy additions.

Shou.TV Is Like Twitch For Your Phone: Stream A Live Video Feed Of Your Android Device To Others, Or Snoop On Theirs Instead

I must confess, I've never seen the appeal of Twitch: why watch other people play video games when you can play them yourself, on the thing you're using to watch them? But enough other people seem to enjoy it that Amazon gobbled up the livestreaming service, and now something very similar has come to Android. Shou.TV is a beta app and service that basically does exactly what Twitch does, but on your phone instead.
