Motorola Migrate update improves pairing, fixes issues

[#protected_0#]

If you bought the [#protected_0#] or one of Motorola‘s other recent handsets, Motorola Migrate likely served as a mixed blessing: while easy to use, it suffers from various bugs that could cause a random loss of connection or trouble pairing. Today the company pushed out an update for the app addressing the problems.

Motorola Migrate is a handy way to transfer the data from one’s previous handset to their new Motorola device, including things like text messages and contacts. The app is available from the Google Play Store, and once downloaded it works with wifi.

The old handset is used to scan a QR code generated by the app on the new handset, which then allows the two handsets to connect with each other. Those who have cameras with fixed focus could run into issues with this, having trouble scanning the code.

The update brings support for QR pairing with a smartphone that has a fixed-focus camera. Beyond this, a number of unspecified bugs that could cause trouble with transferring data between handsets have also been addressed, potentially eliminating any “connection lost” or similar errors.

Chrome Beta update brings undo close and fullscreen video controls

Google has just rolled out an update to the beta branch of its Chrome browser for Android and it brings a few interesting features. Debuting in this update is the ability to re-open recently closed tabs, more multi-window support, and better HTML5 video controls.

Desktop browsers like Chrome and Firefox have long had the ability to “undo” closing of tabs, but mobile browsers have lagged behind in that aspect. Now, Google Chrome Beta is finally catching up. Closing a tab via the tab manager will show an overlay with an option to undo the action. Like on the desktop, users will be able to go through the stack of closed tabs as long as the overlay is visible. Be careful though as it only stays visible for five seconds after a tab is closed.

Also in this update is better support for HTML5 videos. In particular, videos can now be played fullscreen complete with Subtitles as well as playback controls. This feature takes such videos one step closer to feature parity with Flash videos, which are no longer supported on Android.

The release notes also mention support for some multi-window devices, though it doesn’t mention which ones exactly. Chrome, both Beta and final versions, already support Samsung TouchWiz multi-window. We can only presume that this update adds support for third-party implementations and maybe LG’s own multi-window feature.

Chrome Beta now also supports casting some videos to Chromecast, though YouTube support is noted to be still incomplete. Even fullscreen video controls are still not complete. The updated Chrome Beta can be download now from Google Play Store and can be installed side by side with the regular Chrome version with no problems.

Android 4.4.2 update rolling out for Sprint One Max

HTC One Max Drop Down

Earlier this week, HTC unveiled its all-new HTC One (M8), bringing a slightly redesigned look, improved specs and enhanced software. While the M8 is a major jump forward for HTC, the good news is that they haven’t forgotten about the HTC One (M7) and its brothers, the Mini and Max.

Just yesterday, the AT&T version of the HTC One Mini received an update to Android 4.4.2, and now it’s time for the Sprint version of the HTC One Max to get some KitKat lovin’ as well! So what’s all new here in today’s update? Honestly, not a whole lot, other than Android 4.4.2 KitKat and all the goodies that come with it.

Here’s the update change-log, though as you can see it’s a little sparse on details:

  • Android 4.4.2 update
  • Security enhancements
  • Cloud Print service
  • New Bluetooth profiles to support more media interactions

In typical fashion, this is a staged rollout so it may take a few days or more to reach everyone. If you haven’t received a notification prompting you to download, you can check for an update manually by going into your device settings. It’s also worth noting that this is a 343.93MB file, so you’ll want to be on Wi-Fi if data usage is a concern.

Have you received the update yet for your One Max, if so did everything go smoothly both during installation and after? Any other new HTC or carrier specific changes worth noting?

Amazon Cloud Drive Photos update includes major changes

<a rel=amazon cloud drive photos” src=”http://cdn01.androidauthority.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/amazon-cloud-drive-photos.jpg” width=”705″ height=”344″ />

With all the cloud storage options available it’s easy to forget about one of two of them from time to time, and Amazon is trying to remind everyone that it has a cloud storage service with a huge update to the Amazon Cloud Drive Photos app.

The newest update to Amazon Cloud Drive Photos bumps the app from version 1.9 all the way to version 3.0 to show just how much has changed. The app features a completely redesigned photo viewing experience, which the changelog says will “bring enjoyment back to viewing photos and videos on the go.”

The new version of the app has a simpler navigation that follows some standard Android guidelines like the left-side settings panel. That panel also includes a new status bar to show you the status of you automatic and manual uploads, though it’s hard to imagine why Amazon didn’t include a status bar in older versions of the app. Amazon also improved the sorting in the app, letting you put videos into their own folder and sort photos and videos by date and name.

Of course, Amazon Cloud Drive Photos still automatically uploads your photos and videos to the cloud service. Amazon offers 5GB of storage for free, which isn’t a whole lot compared to Google Drive, but still not bad if you mainly use it for photos.

Amazon Cloud Drive Photos still looks closer to Amazon’s Kindle Fire OS than stock Android, but that’s to be expected. At least the company has a signature style for all of its apps that it sticks to.

Have you tried Amazon Cloud Drive Photos? Or do you use a different cloud service to back up your photos?

NVIDIA SHIELD update will bring Kit Kat, improve GameStream

The latest update for the NVIDIA SHIELD has been detailed. This update isn’t scheduled to arrive until early April, but it is one that should have SHIELD users looking forward to seeing arrive. NVIDIA has said this update will bring the system to Android 4.4.2. While Kit Kat sounds nice, there is so much more involved here including key updates for Gamepad Mapper, TegraZone, and GameStream.

Gamepad Mapper

Beginning first with the Gamepad Mapper. Here we have what is being dubbed a “new, polished up user interface.” NVIDIA mentioned how this means easier access to download and share Mapper profiles, as well as the ability to access Mapper with a long press of the NVIDIA button or the Start button.

TegraZone

In terms of the TegraZone portion of the update — this means a new UI which should help in regards to game organization and discovery. TegraZone will also get a new integrated news feed with the latest SHIELD and TegraZone articles. NVIDIA also mentioned how there are now 140 games available in the TegraZone.

GameStream

With Gamepad Mapper and TegraZone out of the way, we can now get into what seems to be the key piece of this update — the GameStream portion. This includes Remote GameStream, notebook support, Bluetooth keyboard and mouse support and more.

Remote GameStream and the notebook support are both noted as being in beta. As for the Remote GameStream, this means SHIELD users will be able to stream PC games to SHIELD from outside the home. This will include wake on LAN support and remote login support. The notebook support will allow users to stream PC games to SHIELD — provided they are using a compatible GeForce GTX-based notebook computer.

The Bluetooth keyboard and mouse support touches on the Console Mode on SHIELD. Basically, those streaming a keyboard and mouse PC game from the computer to the big screen (through Console Mode on the SHIELD) will now have proper peripheral support. And lastly, those additional GameStream enhancements break down as follows;

  • Manually add unofficially supported games to your GameStream list from GeForce Experience.

  • Pin-based PC to SHIELD pairing with ability to pair multiple PCs to your SHIELD
.
  • USB Y-cable support – charge your SHIELD when using Ethernet in Console Mode with a micro USB Host OTG Y Cable
.
  • Advanced Settings – manually set bitrate, FPS, and optimal settings preferences. In TegraZone, go to Settings -> GameStream PCs -> Menu -> Advanced.

Amazon Kindle app update includes faster load times, font choices, more

[#protected_0#]

[#protected_0#] recently rolled out another update for the Kindle app. This one doesn’t have any major bump in version number, but it does appear to have brought along a decent sized list of changes, additions and improvements. To begin with — Amazon addressed the issue of speed with faster cover load times.

Another big addition this time around were the auto-brightness controls. These can be found using the menu icon in the upper right, and it sits alongside the text size, color and other personalization options. Simply put, you can now slide the brightness manually or opt for the auto-brightness mode.

Staying in this same menu location and you’ll also find the ability to adjust the font. Otherwise, remaining items from the changelog include mention of a fix for the sensitivity issue on the volume button page turning, and easy access to the table of contents in the book. The table of contents can be accessed from the left-side navigation menu and will make it easier to move from chapter to chapter, search, sync and go to a specific location.

Lastly, Amazon also offered a few hints with this latest update. There was mention of how you can tap the center of the screen (while in a book) to access the options and settings. Similarly, while in the library you’ll be able to tap and hold any item. The Amazon Kindle app can be found in the Google Play Store.

Plex rolls out a new update, brings Chromecast support to everyone

plex

Although Plex has officially supported Chromecast since December, up until now you had to have a premium PlexPass in order to use it. Today Plex is bringing out a new update that removes this requirement.

So what’s the catch here? Nothing, other than you’ll have to pay a one-time fee of .99 to purchase the Plex Android app. Once you purchase the app, you can use it to connect your library of local PC content and then cast it on over to your Chromecast. Aside from opening up support to non-PlexPass users, the update also includes several bug fixes, the ability to cast music and photos in addition to video, and several bug fixes. Here’s the full change-log:

  • Chromecast support, now including music and photos
  • Massive improvements for remote controlling Plex players
  •  Chromecast no longer requires a Plex Pass!!!
  • Lots of fixes around remote controlling Chromecast and other remote Plex Players
  • Lots more fixes, read about them here: https://forums.plex.tv/index.php/topic/60585-plex-for-android/?p=600338

For PlexPass users, Plex is also adding a few new features to the mix such as shared sync, play queues, a camera upload feature — though most of these are only for iOS and the web version of the app. To learn more about the changes for PlexPass users, you’ll want to check out Plex’s official blog.

To grab the Plex and start Chromecasting without a PlexPass, you’ll want to head on over to Google Play.

Google Translate update brings handwriting support for 13 new languages

Google-Translate

Wednesday is the day we typically see at least a few updates to select Google apps, and today is no exception.

Many times these updates are nothing more than minor bug fixes, like the bug-fixing updates Google is releasing for Google Play Movies & TV and the Chromecast app. From time to time, bigger updates are also thrown in to the mix, as is the case with today’s earlier update to Google Wallet, which saw the addition of a new ‘orders’ tracking feature. Now it looks like Google Translate is getting a reasonably important update as well.

Aside from a number of bug fixes heading to Google Translate, Google is also adding handwriting support for thirteen new languages: Arabic, Bosnian, Cebuano, Gujarati, Hmong, Kannada, Maltese, Mongolian, Persian, Punjabi, Somali, Tamil, and Telugu. Although the Google Translate update isn’t nearly as significant for most users as the Wallet update, it’s still a welcome change for those that speak/write in any of the above mentioned languages.

As to be expected, the Google Translate update will be rolled out in stages, so it may take a few days before it reaches everyone. In the meantime, you can always at least check Google Play to see if an update awaits. Any other Google app updates you’ll noticed today that we haven’t made mention of just yet? Be sure to let us know in the comments below!
