Google sometimes adds new features to apps via updates with changelogs and whatnot. Other times, new features just magically appear one day. That seems to be the case with a new YouTube TV feature. You can now edit your live channel guide to hide what you don't watch and move the other channels around.

Google Play now tracks down which streaming service has the video you're looking for (as long as it's not Netflix) [APK Download]

“Well, maybe it's on Netflix. Um … did you check Hulu? What about Amazon?” While streaming services make it easy to dive right into your favorite shows, sometimes tracking down that program can be way more difficult than it needs to be. Maybe one service has the current season of the show you're looking for, but past seasons are on another. And as licensing deals are signed and expire, shows may drift from one service to another. How the heck are you supposed to keep track of where anything is? Today it's Google to the rescue, as the company starts sharing info on which streaming services carry the media you're searching for.

[Update: Finally live] YouTube app will soon dynamically adapt to different video sizes

I have some bad news—people will never stop shooting vertical video. This battle is lost, guys. It's time to move on. Google is moving on by making the YouTube app a little less awkward when watching such a video. In the next update, YouTube will dynamically adapt to different video shapes and sizes.

Microsoft Edge now available for Android tablets

In October of last year, Microsoft announced it was bringing its Edge web browser to iOS and Android. The browser is primarily targeted at people already using Edge on Windows 10, as it syncs all data across your devices (much like Chrome and Chrome for Android/iOS).

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: Coming March 30th] Pokémon Go getting in-game 'Research Tasks' to let players finally catch Mew

Players of the original Pokémon Red and Blue series will no doubt recall hearing and sharing countless stories on how to obtain the mythical Pokémon, Mew. The creature was only available on the Game Boy through official Nintendo events (or with a glitch discovered in 2003), but that never stopped anyone from spreading rumors about how there was a Mew hiding underneath the truck near the S. S. Anne. This was a time when the internet as we know it was still in its infancy, and it wasn't as easy back then to look up and refute a hoax — though to be fair, things aren't much different now that it is.
