We've followed AmpMe's development ever since its release in October last year as a multi-device music streaming experience, and we've liked it more with each update, especially when it added local music as an audio source and then implemented an offline mode. This latest update, however, is definitely one of the most promising as it opens up the app to a whole slew of new music: AmpMe is adding YouTube as a music source. Yes, that YouTube. Yes, all of YouTube. This is HUGE.
Now when you start a new party in AmpMe, you can choose between SoundCloud, your local music, and YouTube. Read More

The OnePlus 3 is almost upon us. The company is hyping up the virtual launch aboard a space station and the leaks have been abundant recently, so even though we don't have a precise launch date yet, we do know it's coming soon-ish.
But today we get our first official look at the phone, courtesy of TENAA. The US has the FCC, China has TENAA, and the latter keeps its records public so whenever a phone is certified, it shows up on the site in all its glory. The TENAA's certification for the OnePlus 3 confirms the previous image of the phone we've seen (read: the HTC 10-like design) with its big front button that is rumored to hide a fingerprint scanner, its protruding camera on the back, and its horizontal lines on the top and bottom of the backplate.

Most flagship phones from last year have gotten their Marshmallow updates by this point, but not the OnePlus 2. Technically, it's not a flagship—it's a flagship killer. OnePlus took time out from killing flagships in March to release a community build (beta) of Marshmallow for the OP2, and now there's an update to that in the form of OxygenOS 3.0.1. Guess what, it's still just a community build. Read More
