Essential Phone may have sold 50,000 units according to camera app download numbers

Back in late September, we reported about a research firm that claimed Essential Phone only sold 5,000 units in the United States. Fast forward six weeks and it looks like that number increased by ten times.

Apparently, Essential Phone may have sold around 50,000 units since its release, a much better number than the amount mentioned in September. The information is based on the number of downloads of Essential’s Camera app from the Google Play Store, so it surely isn’t 100% accurate.

In case you’re wondering how did Essential manage to boost sales of its smartphone in such a short …

Google's Files Go are now out of beta, download it here

Interestingly enough, Google did not have a dedicated file manager for Android up until a few weeks ago, when we heard of Files Go, a new app that is designed to be used as a files hub for Android devices, but mostly intended for the new lightweight Android Go edition of the OS. At first, it was an unreleased beta, but with the release of the latter to developers and manufacturers earlier today, Files Go also escaped its “beta” constraints and is now available for just about everyone on the Play Store.
Files Go hasn’t scored any new groundbreaking feature …

YouTube Go is out of beta and available for download in the Google Play Store

Google has been working on a lightweight version of its YouTube app for mobile devices for quite a long time. However, the so-called YouTube Go was available in beta form and those interested could test it out while helping Google make a better app out of it.

Today, the final version of YouTube Go was published in the Google Play Store so that everyone can give it a go. There’s a catch though, as the app doesn’t seem to be available in all territories, which isn’t surprising since the reason of its existence is to give users in select countries the option to save …

Download Android 8 Oreo (beta) on your Essential Phone today

As of today, November 14, if you own an Essential Phone, you can install a beta build of Android 8 Oreo on it. Since this is not a final version of Oreo, it likely comes with various bugs. Essential encourages customers to report these bugs on its official forums, and says that, should you not like the software experience, you can revert back to a stable version of Android 7 Nougat (the one that most Essential Phone users currently have).

According to Essential, downloading this beta build of Android Oreo “will not affect your Essential Limited Warranty rights”. …

You can now download Google's new Files Go free file manager for Android (beta)

Google has just officially launched the new Files Go free file manager for Android and you can get it on the Google Play Store at the link below.
Files Go is a mix between a file manager app and a file sharing app, allowing you to manage all that’s on your phone, but also send files easily to others who have the app installed.
Right now Files Go is in early beta and it crashed a few times on our Google Pixel, so it’s definitely not stable just yet. But it’s very clean in terms of design, there are no ads to spoil the …

Well, it will be only fair to imagine Australia making a “hold my beer” sign before essentially leaking the full Android game to the whole world, …

Download this: Spilly's AR app is like Snapchat filters on steroids

TwitterFacebook

If you’ve ever watched a YouTube video and wished that you could be part of it, there’s a new augmented reality app that might be able to help.

It’s called Spilly, and it takes popular videos of celebrities, YouTube stars, and other famous clips, then allows users to mash them up with Snapchat-like AR effects and even their own faces.

The app features a seemingly endless feed of video clips sourced from YouTube. For each clip, there’s a carousel of special effects you can add to make the video your own.

You could change what Golden State Warriors Star Kevin Durant is wearing, for example, or shower a Miley Cyrus video with virtual confetti or flowers. Or make it rain, or add a spotlight, or any combination of the above. The clips loop so you can keep adding or subtracting effects until you get something you like. Read more…

First things first. The official changelog for the beta includes the September Android security patch along with the following:
