Before Google announced the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, it pushed a new app listing to the Play Store that offered some details about the rumored always-on music ID feature. It turns out there's another interesting tidbit in that listing: the Pixel 2 will be able to automatically toggle on Do Not Disturb mode when you're driving.

The listing in question is called Pixel Ambient Services, which is a nice, vague name.

The LG V30 was announced way back at IFA almost two months ago, but it's only just started shipping to consumers. This phone is almost unbelievably light but that doesn't mean it's not sturdy. The latest LG phone has gone through usual JerryRigEverything durability tests and it managed to remain in one piece.

The JerryRigEverything test consists of scratch, flame, and bend portions. The scratch test verifies that the V30's screen is as durable as other phones sporting Gorilla Glass 5.

Pluto TV continues its climb into relevance. For those of you who don't know, Pluto TV is a television service that provides access to news, live sports, and themed channels for free. The company just received a $5 million investment from Samsung of all places. This money will be used to expand Pluto TV's content and marketing reach.

This sum of money came from the Samsung Venture Investment Corporation, an arm of the entity that we all know as Samsung.

Anyone want to save some money on Google Play credit? If you answered "yes," then you're in luck. Amazon is currently offering a $50 Google Play gift card for $45. Bear in mind that you do have to wait for it to actually arrive in the mail, but you will save $5.

Buying apps and games is a lot of fun. For me, it's about supporting my favorite developers and getting all the extra goodies (or even ad removals).

Samsung likes to have its own custom version of things as a differentiating feature. Android Pay? How about Samsung Pay? Play Store? Galaxy Apps. Assistant? S Voice... I mean, Bixby. Just six months after launching Bixby on the Galaxy S8, Samsung is announcing the next iteration. Bixby 2.0 will bring together the company's products under a single smart assistant banner, but details are a bit scarce right now.

Bixby 2.0 will come to Samsung's phones, of course, but it'll also be integrated with smart TVs, refrigerators, and other appliances.

At I/O this year, Google promised support for the Korean language would be coming by the end of the year to Assistant. Then at the October Pixel event a couple of weeks ago, Google also stated that Actions on Google (third-party Assistant integrations from different services) now support Korean. Between then and now, it appears that support for the Korean language has gone live on Assistant.

Google's help pages now say that you can talk to Assistant in Korean on your phone, your Wear watch (which makes sense since it's connected to your phone), and that developers can add it in their Actions on Google apps.

If you think it looks like a miniature Echo Dot for your car, you're basically spot on. The Garmin Speak is a GPS navigation unit with Amazon Alexa built-in. It was announced yesterday and is the first in-car device of its kind to add Alexa capabilities. At just an inch and a half, it's tiny, and yet it offers the same turn-by-turn GPS navigation as Garmin's other products while also including Amazon's smart assistant.

Whether on mobile or desktop, Chrome always has a few experimental tricks up its sleeve. You can find these at chrome://flags where they can be enabled or disabled. Google uses these to test new features ahead of turning them on permanently, and lots of what we love about chrome started out as an optional flag.

The latest of these experiments to hit the Canary channel of Chrome for Android is a flag that could offer up push notifications for breaking news events.

Chrysler's Uconnect infotainment system isn't bad, but if you asked me whether I'd rather use it or Android Auto with proper integration, I'd take Google's solution any day. If you, too, prefer Android Auto and have been in the market for an FCA product, you're in luck - 14 new cars across five of the association's brands now support it.

Without further ado, here's the list:

  • Abarth
    • 2017+ 595
    • 2017+ 695
  • Chrysler
    • 2018+ Pacifica
  • Dodge
    • 2018+ Durango
  • Fiat
    • 2017+ 500
    • 2017+ 500L
    • 2017+ Argo
    • 2017+ Tipo
  • Jeep
    • 2018+ Grand Cherokee
    • 2018+ Wrangler
  • RAM
    • 2018+ 1500
    • 2018+ 2500
    • 2018+ 3500
    • 2018+ Chassis Cab

This means that you can now have Android Auto in everything from the little city runabout that is the Fiat 500 to the 707hp monster SUV that is the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.

TWRP is still the best custom recovery available, giving Android users a better way to flash ROMs and backup their devices. Part of the reason it's so great is that can be ported to new devices fairly easily. Since we last covered the project earlier this month, a few more phones have been added to the roster.

Without further ado, here is the full list of added devices:

As is usually the case, these are a mix of old and new devices.
