Every year for the past few years, Google releases an app for I/O attendees. Then, a few months afterwards, the company uploads the app's source code to GitHub. This year's I/O app was aptly named "Google I/O 2017," and now, if you're an Android developer, you can go through its source code to see what new techniques you can implement into your own app(s).

The biggest addition to the I/O 2017 app was the event reservation system, which enabled attendees to make reservations and join waitlists for various events without having to stand in long lines.

No one likes auto-playing video, but auto-playing previews can be helpful in certain cases. Google recently rolled out video previews on the YouTube desktop site, allowing people to hover over a video to see a glimpse of the contents. Now the company is rolling out video previews on its mobile Search.

Google Search already shows a carousel of related videos on some searches, especially ones with large amounts of video results (like tutorials, reviews, etc).

It took a few months longer than expected, but the Essential Phone went up for pre-order in the US yesterday. Our friends north of the border didn't have any way to buy the phone at the time, but that changes today. The Essential Phone is now live on the Telus website... and that's all. Telus is the only place you can get the Essential Phone in Canada.

Telus is asking a pretty penny for the Essential Phone with pricing starting at $290 on a two-year contract.

You might be forgiven for overlooking the existence of a phone in the image above. The telltale sheen of curved glass coupled with the tiny bottom bezel are pretty much the only things that give it away. If you do spot it, this might just be your first look at Xiaomi's new Mi Mix 2.

Never before have I been so upset to know that a phone probably won't get support for US frequencies.

Most of YouTube's server-side rollouts are fairly limited, but this latest one seems to be pretty widespread. There's a new "Breaking News" section within the YouTube feed that has appeared for many, and it's exactly what you'd expect - a collection of videos pertaining to breaking news around the world.

Since the Barcelona terrorist attack is the most recent major news event, that's what's currently populating the Breaking News section. Seven videos are displayed in this horizontally-scrollable format, and they're all the same for everyone in the same general region.

Back at I/O, Google promised that the Home speaker will add more music streaming services like Deezer and SoundCloud, as well as open up Spotify to free accounts instead of being limited to Premium. The Deezer integration started rolling earlier this month, and now Spotify free seems to be following suit.

If you have a free Spotify account and are OK with listening to ads, not being able to skip songs all the time, and don't mind the lower quality audio, then you should be able to enjoy your music on the Google Home just like paid Spotify Premium subscribers have been for the past months.

The KEYone is available as an unlocked phone, and that's probably how most BlackBerry fans will buy it. However, there's a Sprint version, too. Owners of the Sprint version recently reported an aggravating battle with bloatware, which was constantly reinstalling itself on the phone. Sprint has now confirmed this is a bug, and it'll be fixed soon.

According to multiple accounts from KEYone owners, the SprintID app is frequently waking up and checking for the presence of pre-installed apps like Amazon, Audible, Facebook Messenger, and Lookout.

Instant Apps were first announced over a year ago at Google I/O 2016. Put simply, when tapping on search results from a supported site, a minimal version of the site's app would quickly install and immediately display the content. For example, tapping on a Vimeo link would open the Vimeo app and the video would start playing.

The feature started gradually rolling out in January, and became open to all developers in July.

Google Assistant may be over a year old now, but it still only supports a select number of languages in a few countries. Back in May at Google I/O, it was announced that Assistant would support four more languages, including Brazilian-Portuguese, by the end of the summer. Lo and behold, Google Assistant in a Brazilian-Portuguese flavor is now available in Brazil.

Google's support page for this hasn't been updated yet, as Portuguese is still listed under the list of upcoming languages for both non-Pixel and Pixel Android devices.
