When currently searching for files inside of Drive, it’s imperative to know what it is you are looking for. Whether it be a random .jpg or other .doc, knowing the exact name will definitely bring you the results you need. However, what if you don’t know the exact name, or you want to accomplish a more broad search. With an updated search feature for Google Drive, you can do just that. (more…)
Samsung Pay v2.3 is available for download on your compatible Galaxy devices.
In the update, Samsung says that the mobile payment system now supports “more of your favorite gift cards” and membership cards, restores those cards when you sign back in to Samsung Pay, and supports “iris based authentication” on supported phones. There is a single phone with an iris scanner at the moment, the Galaxy Note 7, so should you find yourself in the possession of the non-exploding variety, give the iris scanning a go! (more…)
In a Google Maps update that was first given to beta testers, as we’ve seen it for what seems like a couple of weeks now, the blue dot that indicates your location will now also indicate your direction. Not that this needs to be broken down any further, but let’s break it down for all to understand. (more…)
Before you freakout at that title, understand that the idea of Google Now is very much still in the Google App, it’s just that Google doesn’t appear to want to refer to its services any longer as “Now.” Well, at least that’s what the new Google App beta is leading us to believe.
Last night, Google pushed out an update to beta testers of the Google App. For the most part, we aren’t seeing any major changes, but if you go into settings for the app, you won’t find “Google Now” mentioned anywhere.

The Desire 10 from HTC is now official, after what seems like weeks of teasing. There are two models of the Desire 10, just as we suspected, with launch set to take place outside of the US starting later this month. For fans of the Desire series, there is the Desire 10 Pro, as well as the Desire 10 Lifestyle. Each model is quite similar, differing in only a couple of ways. (more…)
Whether you own a new, safe Galaxy Note 7 or are holding onto the bomb-in-waiting version that was recalled, Verizon has an update for you this morning as software version VRS2APHE. The update serves two purposes, really, to turn the battery indicator green if you have a safe phone or to splash warnings all over the phone should you have a potentially unsafe version. (more…)
Here it comes! The official unveiling for Google’s new Pixel phones has a date! Google just posted this somewhat cryptic video to their YouTube channel with an October 4 mention and a Google Search box morphing into the shape of a phone.
Yeah, this is the October 4 date that we first reported over a month ago. (more…)
If Google really is about to announce the Pixel and Pixel XL on October 4, expect days like today to become commonplace. I’m talking about the amount of leaks, of course. Shortly after talking about potential Pixel pricing and carrier availability, two new photos have appeared and show both phones both front and back. At this rate, October 4 might be pretty damn boring. (more…)
