Ever since Google started allowing paid apps and games to temporarily go on sale, we've seen dozens of great deals. Perhaps in an effort to better highlight these sales, Google has added a 'Free App of the Week' section to the Google Play Store.

The section can be found by scrolling down on the 'Apps' page of the Play Store, on either desktop or mobile, or simply by clicking the source link at the bottom of the post.

If you own a Pixel or Pixel XL, you might have encountered an annoying bug where the phone's Bluetooth connection would randomly shut off. You could still turn it back on, but it could shut off again without warning. Not the kind of software quality you would expect from a $650+ device.

Almost exactly one month ago, Google reported that they had created a fix, and would be rolled out "in an upcoming release." A Google community manager has now shared that the fix is currently in place, courtesy of a server-side change.

The past week has been the Big-O week for all of us involved in Google's ecosystem and the Android world. The follow-up to Android 7.0/7.1 Nougat was announced as Android O — full name still unknown — and the developer preview images were made available for those who want to test it out and check all the new features.

That caused our inboxes to overflow with tips of all the major and minor and super minor changes in Android O coming from our readers, and it got our team to work overtime to verify and report them.

Before there was Allo and Duo, before Hangouts was unveiled, there was Google Talk. In some ways, it was better than the Hangouts platform that replaced it. Talk had a real desktop app, and if you didn't like it, you could use any XMPP client to communicate. You could even send messages to users on other XMPP-powered services - a huge difference from today's proprietary messaging services.

Google Talk was ultimately updated to Hangouts in 2013, but some of Google Talk's services still remained active. Today, Google announced in a blog post that the remains of Talk is being completely shut down.

We already covered that Amazon will sell Prime-exclusive Moto G5 Plus models with lockscreen ads, but other retailers have begun to take pre-orders for the phone as well. Best Buy, Motorola, B&H, and Ting are now selling the G5 Plus, with a release date set for March 31.

If you need a refresher, the Moto G5 Plus is the more-powerful of the two 2017 Moto G phones. It has a 5.2" 1080p display with Gorilla Glass 3, a Snapdragon 625 processor, 12MP back camera, 5MP front camera, and a 3,000 mAh battery.

When the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge launched in March of last year, they received fantastic reviews. Everyone, including the notoriously-critical David, raved about their fantastic AMOLED displays, water resistance, more grown-up software, excellent cameras, and so much more. Virtually any and all niggles that the Galaxy S6 warranted were fixed in the latest iteration. The S7 edge, in particular, received extraordinarily high praise for its gorgeous curved screen and excellent battery life.

However, Samsung devices aren't exactly well-known for holding up well over time.

Multi-window was one of the biggest and most useful additions to Android 7.0 Nougat. It made its debut on Android with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 all the way back in 2012, but it took a full four years to make its way into stock Android. It's since become a staple for many people; the convenience of watching a YouTube video while simultaneously scrolling through a Twitter or Facebook feed just can't be beat.

In late June of last year, Amazon introduced its Prime Exclusive program, which offered unlocked phones to Prime members at a discount in exchange for a few Amazon apps and ads on them. It was a rather intriguing concept, and it's proven to be a success. David even used a BLU R1 HD in $60 Prime Exclusive guise for a month to see how a smartphone that cheap would fare.

LG has already announced the G6, its flagship for this year, but people on a budget are not to be left out. The Korean manufacturer unveiled the K20, the successor to last year's K10. The specs are pretty low-end, but that is to be expected. Strangely enough, the T-Mobile version (K20 Plus) and the Verizon one (K20 V) have some slightly different specs from each other.

Here is what you can expect:

Specs

Display 5.3" IPS LCD HD 1280 x 720
Software Android 7.0 Nougat; LG UX 5.1
CPU Snapdragon MSM8917 @ 4 x 1.4GHz
Battery 2,700mAh (Tmo); 2,800 (VZW)
Storage 32GB (Tmo); 16GB (VZW)
RAM 2GB
Cameras 13MP rear, 5MP front
Connectivity Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2

Either carrier version has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and both have microUSB ports and support HD Voice where available.

Once upon a time, I was able to get most of my communication done through Hangouts. Between its support for standard SMS, Google Voice, and normal Hangouts conversations, it was an incredibly useful tool. It even could even merge SMS and Hangouts conversations into the same thread, much like iMessage on the iPhone.
