Google starts rolling out a new refreshing UI for the Play Store

Google is known for its regular updates and since the introduction of Pixel, the first ever phone made by Google the company showed off a new Play Store UI in a support video for their  flagship device. Now, users are reporting that the new UI is slowly rolling out to devices. This update includes new colors and a revamped install page. The first change you’ll notice is on the home page of the Play Store. A new shade of green has taken over for the Android-y shade we’re used to seeing. The big featured carousel across the top has been shrunk down and moved underneath the “Apps & Games” bar. However, some screenshots show the carousel has been removed completely. Moving on to the install page, the “Install” button is much bigger. The ratings and installs information looks completely different. They’ve removed the category icons, which makes it easier to read. The “More Information” section has been moved lower on the page, and developer info has been slightly reworded. All in all, these are simple changes that make the Play Store a little easier to use. So what do you guys think of the new updated interface? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below. Cheers!! Source:...

WhatsApp Beta gets Video Calling feature with latest update

WhatsApp Beta gets Video Calling feature with latest update

WhatsApp just got a new major feature today in its latest update – The ability to (finally) make video calls. The video calling feature is currently only available for the beta version of the world famous messaging app so if you’re one of the beta users, you might very well be among the first people to try out the new video calling service. Early reports claim that even though the video calls worked perfectly, some users were complaining of a slight lag which they felt even on a 50Mbps Wi-Fi network. Of course, WhatsApp is likely to address that; it asked for quality feedback on video calls, so hopefully it’ll take that into account before making the feature available on stable builds. For those of you who are interested in testing out the new video calling feature can download the latest version of WhatsApp beta from APK Mirror. Do share your experience with us in the comments below. Cheers!! Source: The Next...
