auto_menuVLC, the desktop favorite of local video enthusiasts for more than a decade, doesn’t have quite the same kind of universal acclaim on Android. But the developers are still hard at work making improvements. According to a blog post from Geoffrey Metais, the 2.1.0 update to the beta release adds a ton on new features, notably including compatibility with Android Auto (for audio, not video).

Other changes to the interface include a new standard audio player, compatibility with Google’s native voice search feature, global library search and filtering, 360-degree video controls (with full Cardboard/Daydream support coming later), better grid animation, and a revised design for Android TV that includes picture-in-picture support.

After nine months of existence, Google is throwing in the towel on group messaging app Spaces. It's going read-only on March 3rd and will be completely offline on April 17th. So, that's one Google messaging app down, like a dozen still to go.

Spaces was launched last May after a confusing early leak. We couldn't figure out why Google would bother with such an app. The idea was that you'd create group chats around a certain topic, then add content via Chrome, YouTube, and Google search.

For all of you Galaxy S7 and S7 edge users out there (on Nougat), Samsung has officially released the Secure Folder feature that we saw on the Note 7 for your devices. You can download it from the Galaxy Apps store and get to protecting all of your sensitive files. You can shove documents, images, and even apps in there to keep them safe.

If anyone doesn't know, Secure Folder works by sandboxing your stuff separate from everything else on the phone.

Google released Messenger in the Nexus 6 days as an alternative to Hangouts for SMS. As Google continues to gut Hangouts and push the SMS-free Allo messaging platform, Messenger has become more important. Now, it's getting a new name. It's no longer Messenger, it's Android Messages. Why? Reasons.

Here's the changelog from the latest version. It's not very informative.

  • A new name! Messenger is now Android Messages, the messaging app built for Android
  • Bug fixes and stability improvements
  • Simpler sign-up for enhanced features on supported carriers

The name change is the only change of note I've seen, but supposedly the setup process is better now.

Google announced Allo at Google I/O last year and people were strangely excited about it. Maybe this would finally be the Google chat app to rule them all. When it came out, Allo was lacking in... well, a lot of things. One of the most unsightly gaps in Allo's feature set was the lack of a web version. Google is working on that, and VP of communications products Nick Fox has given us an early glimpse at it.

There's a new version of Play Music rolling out to users and this one includes at least a couple of things to smile about. This release cuts the size of the app by a good amount and fits in a few interesting changes to navigation and appearance. But the really important change can be found in the Teardown. It looks like Play Music will finally become available to Google's Clock app to sound off for alarms.

Talking to a company's customer support rep isn't often a pleasurable experience, and sometimes it's made even more automated and less personal when getting replies from a nondescript "support" or "help" social media or email account without a face or name. That's an issue you could face on Twitter, when multiple reps are in charge of a company's account and presence, but depending on the company's policy, they either hide in anonymity or have to remember to sign messages with their initials or names to seem more approachable to users.

I'm a fan of Synology. I've had their DS416Play DiskStation for a while (review coming) and I never fathomed the idea of having my own "server" but they made the process as simple and fast as possible so that even someone like me, with no background whatsoever in server management, could be up and running in a matter of minutes.

Beside their DiskStation lineup, Synology also makes a couple of routers and tries to simplify many a router setup process and hurdle with smart add-on packages.
