Despite not being the latest OnePlus models out on the market anymore, the OnePlus 3 and 3T continue to receive updates that fix issues and introduce new software features on a regular basis.
Today, new Open Beta patches have been made available for the two 2016 high-end models. The updates carry different names (OxygenOS Open Beta 29 for the OP 3 and 20 for the OP 3T), but the changes included are basically identical. Still, there’s a lot of new stuff on board, so let’s take a look at the entire patch log:
Most Nova and/or Action Launcher users are well-acquainted with the launchers’ highly-customizable, color-changing, shape-shifting Google search bar widgets, and it seems like Google is taking note. The latest beta update of Google App introduces a customizable search bar widget of its own, and although it’s not as flexible as the ones found in custom launchers, it’s still good news for those who don’t rely on home screen replacements.
More and more users are trying Android launchers to the point that it has become a trend. However, there are probably only a handful of launchers very popular among Android users, and Action Launcher is one of them.
Chris Lacy, the man behind Action Launcher has just released a brand new version of its app, which brings a couple of new features and improvements. If you already have the Android launcher installed, then you’ll want to know that the highlight of the most recent update is the new weather widget.
The new weather widget introduced in the latest update is still in alpha …
If you’re not too emotionally attached to using Apple’s Calendar app for iOS, then you’ll probably be happy to know that Google’s similar app has been updated with a new feature that brings it on par with the competition.
The new Google Calendar v2.4.0 is now available for download in the App Store. It brings a new Today Widget that wasn’t available in the app until the latest update. Right after you update the app, you will be able to add the widget by just swiping to the right form the Home screen and choosing the Edit option.
However, unlike Apple’s Calendar …
Google has just released a small Maps update in the App Store. There only a couple of new features included in the update, but they should make users’ life much easier while on the go.
The highlight of the update seems to be the new Local Guides widget, which should allow Maps users to check their Local Guide points and add reviews and photos to a place much easier.
Also, the new version of Google Maps for iOS features 3D touch peek for list items, which comes in handy when you’re looking for restaurants. Another notable improvement included in the update …
The newest stable version of Chrome for Android dropped in the Google Play last week, so it makes sense for Google to start working on the next iteration.
Chrome 60 is now available for download in the beta channel and brings lots of new features and improvements into the mix. The most important seems to be the addition of a new search widget that includes a shortcut allowing users to search Chrome using their voice.
Google has also improved the way the browser loads fonts on different websites. Usually, Chrome delays rendering text until the used font is available, which means that …
This is the time of the year when owners of last year’s Samsung Galaxy S handset start feeling a wee bit jealous. For an entire year, they had the top selling Android handset with all of the latest features. But with the brand spanking new model about to be released, a slight depression takes over. Owners of the Samsung Galaxy S7 are now experiencing that feeling. It’s the same feeling that Apple iPhone owners had when the Apple iPhone 3G was introduced.
