Android 7.1.2 Nougat is official, public beta coming later today (Update 2: rolling out now)

Google has just officially announced Android 7.1.2 Nougat, and will begin rolling out the public beta build starting today!

Android 7.1.2 beta will roll out to Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 5X, Nexus Player and Pixel C devices who are enrolled in the Android Beta Program starting today, while the company says the Nexus 6P will get the update “soon.”

Of course, you probably shouldn’t expect a ton of new features to come along with this new update. Android 7.1.2 will be an incremental maintenance release focused on refinements, which will include a number of bug fixes, optimizations, and a small number of enhancements for carriers and users. That’s the only description Google gave for this new version of Android, so we’ll have to wait and see what specific changes it brings.

Google says if you’d like to test out this new version of Android ASAP, you should enroll in the Android Beta Program. And like always, if you have an eligible device that’s already enrolled, your device should receive the update in the next few days. If you haven’t enrolled yet, head to this website, opt-in your eligible Android phone or tablet, and that’s it. You’ll receive an OTA in just a few hours. And if you’d rather do things the old fashioned way, you can always download and flash the update manually.

The final, consumer-ready version of 7.1.2 will be released in just a few months for all the devices listed above.

Google search now has card-based suggestions for all the best recipes

It seems Google search is getting smarter and smarter; it certainly is getting more convenient for mobile devices. Ever since Google introduced its card-based UI, things look more organized and are easier to spot. And the search giant is bringing a slew of recipes in that format. Now when you search on the Google app for a particular recipe, “you’ll see a carousel of tappable suggestions to make sure you catch the best recipe.”

For instance, if you type in “Chicken wing recipes,” not only will Google gather various recipes from the web with scrumptious pictures, it will also give you suggestions for more specific types such as “Buffalo,” “Honey,” “Spicy,” or “Slow cooker.” If you tap on one of those keywords, Google will show you a list of cards, each from a different website, along with a preview of ingredients, reviews, calories, and how long it’d take to cook. Pretty neat, eh?

Google will show you a list of cards, each from a different website, along with a preview of ingredients, reviews, calories, and how long it’d take to cook.

So whether you are preparing for a party, in need of some inspiration, or just salivating at 2AM looking for some food porn, Google wants to be the place to go to for easy step-by-step recipes. If you haven’t done so already, give it a try – ranging from simple appetizers to full-blown Korean dishes, it should have a thing or two that pleases you.

Now you can stream live 360 degree video on Twitter!

Micro-blogging website Twitter has introduced a new way to see what is happening on Twitter — through live 360-degree video.

“Users can check out live, interactive 360 videos from interesting broadcasters and explore what’s happening with them. They will be able to get an inside look with well-known personalities and go behind the scenes at exclusive events,” Alessandro Sabatelli, Director of AR and VR at Twitter, said on Wednesday.

Although everyone on Twitter and Periscope can watch live 360 videos, currently only select partners can go live in 360 via Periscope and and will be rolled out more broadly during the coming weeks, Sabatelli pointed out.

When you see a video marked with a LIVE 360 badge, you can interact with it to change what you see by moving your phone or swiping the screen, all while watching live.

You can see what is unfolding behind, above, or below the broadcaster’s view for an immersive experience.

Live 360 video is not just about taking you to places you have never been, it is about connecting you with people and letting you experience something new with them.

Pokemon Go for Windows 10 Mobile is now possible, PoGo UWP now available in beta

Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile users have been pining for Pokemon Go for some time now, with a petition for Niantic to bring the game to Microsoft’s mobile platform garnering well over 50,000 signatures (almost 100,000 now). There’s been hope for an official port of Pokemon Go for Windows 10 Mobile for some time, with Microsoft representatives across various teams stating that they’re working on it, however, none of those claims have come to fruition so far. That brings it back to the Windows phone community, who are known for their third-party apps, which, in some cases, turn out better than the official apps – such as YouTube, Reddit and SoundCloud.

This time, we’ve gained a third-party client for Pokemon Go, called PoGo-UWP (at least for now). It acts as a client between the Android version of the app and brings its features to the Windows 10 platform. With it being a client, it means that players are connected to the same world as players on the other mobile platforms and can complete many of the same tasks. It is important to note that the app is still in beta and is being actively worked on. It is also open-source, meaning that anybody can help out. It has some issues right now and a few missing features but it is a good start for a third-party version of Pokemon Go.

Features of the app so far include:

  • Login with Pokemon™ Trainer Club accounts
  • Similar UI as the Android/iOS version but 2D only
  • Use the map to see both Pokemons and PokeStops near your location
  • Catch Pokemons
  • Visit PokeStops and get new items

For some of the missing features, they’ll be coming soon:

  • Improve layout/UI/animations
  • Fix crashes
  • Add Google Login support
  • Make better code
  • Add eggs support
  • Add Pokedex and inventory management
  • Add gyms support

Get the app on your device

PoGo-UWP isn’t available in the Windows Store yet. It currently resides on GitHub, where users interested in giving the app a try will have to complete a few steps before being able to transfer it to their device. These steps can become a little advanced for the average user, as it requires tools such as Visual Studio, Bluestacks and more.

Pre-order the R-rated version of Batman versus Superman on Windows 10 and Xbox now

The R-rated version of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice is now available for digital pre-order via Microsoft Movies & TV (or Film & TV in some regions) which means it’s orderable on Windows 10 devices via the Store app, on Windows phones running 8.1 and under in the Xbox Video app, and on Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles.

Called Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice Ultimate Edition, this extended R-rated version of the film includes over 30 minutes of footage that wasn’t shown in theaters as well as the original theatrical version. The Ultimate Edition is more than a collection of a few extra scenes. There were several actors, such as Jena Malone and C.T. Fletcher, who were cut entirely from the theatrical version and are now back in the film and director, Zack Snyder, has suggested in several interviews that a rather big Easter egg, which hints at future DC movies, has also been added back in.

The original version of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice is rated PG-13 and is available separately as well for those with no interest in the Ultimate Edition.

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice is the follow-up to Man of Steel, the first movie in the rebooted DC Comics movie continuity. While Man of Steel reintroduced Superman to audiences on the big screen, Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice expands the world established in that film by bringing in Batman, Wonder Woman, and several other superheroes from DC Comics’ popular franchises.

The film has been quite divisive with audiences with some praising it while others are calling it one of the worst movies ever made. Did you enjoy it and are you interested in seeing this new version of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice? Let us know in the comments below, and remember to refrain from posting spoilers. Not everyone’s seen it yet.
