Misfit Vapor confirmed to run Android Wear 2.0, no NFC support on board

Unveiled back in January at Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the Misfit Vapor smartwatch was a bit of a mystery until now. Although we’ve been able to get our hands on one and provide you with some photos of the smartwatch, Misfit didn’t want to offer any details on the operating system powering the Vapor.

Well, it looks like the company couldn’t keep the secret anymore since the Vapor will be available for purchase in late summer. On top of that, the Misfit Vapor has been recently showcased at Baselworld, the place where some of the biggest watchmakers in the world …

HTC One (M8) is getting Android 7.0 Nougat update at T-Mobile

In an unexpected turn of events, T-Mobile announced it has finished testing Android 7.0 Nougat for the HTC One (M8), and the update should now be available for download.

We’re quite surprised to see that a three-year-old phone is still getting a major software update such as Android 7.0 Nougat. If this isn’t truly a mistake made by T-Mobile, it’s remarkable that HTC has decided to continue to support its One (M8), a smartphone that was launched back in March 2014.

It’s worth noting that T-Mobile and a few other carriers in the United States pushed Android …

The Movado Connect, powered by Android Wear 2.0, is expected to launch this coming Fall

Luxury watch maker Movado has introduced its first Android Wear 2.0 timepiece, the Movado Connect. With a crystal display that is nearly edge-to-edge, the dial used on the above promotional render shows an uncluttered screen with the iconic single dot replacing the number 12. But that is only one of the 100 watch faces that the Connect will launch with. Each face includes the single dot design and offers “brilliant new color, dimension, complication, details and day to night transformation.” The device does feature an “always-on screen,” and its support of NFC means that Android Pay is enabled …

Google to ditch SMS support in Hangouts for Android effective May 22

It looks like Google can’t decide what route to take when it comes to Hangouts. The messaging service suffered many changes during the development cycle, so the fact that it’s going to go through another one shouldn’t surprise anyone.

However, this time Google has decided to ditch one of the features that made Hangouts a multipurpose messaging app. Although Google has yet to confirm the information, it appears that SMS support will be removed from Hangouts for Android.

Google had sent emails to G Suite administrators warning them that a message will appear …

Hearthstone, tremble! The Elder Scrolls: Legends is out on the iPad, hitting Android soon

The Elder Scrolls is one of role-playing’s most beloved franchises, but it took a long while for a TES game to hit mobile devices. It’s finally happened – The Elder Scrolls: Legends is out worldwide on the iPad, free to play and compatible with all iOS 10-running tablets. It’s a hefty download at 1.19GB, though.

Legends is a card game that launched on PC earlier this month to positive reviews, and it’s also coming to Android tablets in April. A version for Android smartphones will be released later in the summer, and hopefully, Bethesda will make it run on iPhones as well

Android O makes adding custom ringtones a piece of cake

We have Android 7 Nougat running on less than 3% of Android devices, but Google has already officially announced the next version of its operating system: Android O.
We only have a general outline of the major focus of this Android update: it will be mostly about battery life, but some other neat improvements are also coming. And while it will probably be a year or more until it arrives to a meaningful number of phones, here is one welcome new feature in Android O: it will allow you to easily set a custom ringtone for calls, notifications …
