Project Fi now lets you share credits with other group plan members

Those of you who have a Project Fi group plan might have been frustrated by finding that your promotional credits couldn’t be used to bring the cost of your overall bill down. Thankfully, that’s now changing as Google is letting users share credits with other group plan members.

A verified Project Fi Googler took to Reddit to announce the good news, and this support page backs it up. If you’ve already opted into Fi credits, you shouldn’t have to do anything else and sharing should already be possible.

Withings is back with the Steel HR Sport, a hybrid smartwatch with advanced multisport tracking

Although its watches don’t run Wear OS, we’ve followed Withings closely for a few reasons. For one, it makes beautiful minimalist watches with some smart fitness tracking features added in (I own an Activité Steel and I love it). The French company has also been in the news a lot due to Nokia acquiring it, turning it into its Digital Health Division, and then selling it back to its co-founder.

Jaybird X4 review: Great earbuds without much new to offer

A confession: I gave up on my previous pair of Bluetooth earbuds, Jaybird’s own X2, after about a year. It wasn’t their fault; they sounded good, they were comfortable, and the battery lasted long enough. But keeping the things charged (with microUSB, no less — yuck) and juggling connections became a chore. I gave them away and cozied up to a pair of no-name wired buds. Once I got a Pixel 2, I was living the dongle life. Read MoreJaybird X4 review: Great earbuds without much new to offer was written by the awesome team at Android Police.

ZTE put a screen on the back of the Nubia Z18S, because why the hell not

Just last year, ZTE came out with the Axon M, a phone with two screens that merged to form one giant nearly-square display when it was unfolded. It looks like one awkward dual-screen phone wasn’t enough for the company, judging from leaked photos (and video) of the ZTE Nubia Z18S.

Whereas the Axon M aped the Kyocera Echo’s foldable concept, the Nubia Z18S follows the standard candybar form factor that every other phone does – just with another screen on the back.

[Deal Alert] 4K Fire TV on sale for $40 ($30 off) for Prime members

You can swing by Amazon’s website any old day and purchase a Fire TV Stick for $40, but that’s just the 1080p version. The 4K-compatible Fire usually costs $70. That’s not the case today. Amazon Prime subscribers can get $30 off the 4K Fire TV right now.

The 4K Fire TV is a bit larger than the 1080p Fire TV Stick, but it still just dangles behind your TV. It runs Fire OS, so you have access to Alexa and all the usual Amazon content.

Chrome OS v69 stable introduces Linux app compatibility, finalized Material Design changes

The long-awaited Linux support for Chromebooks has just hit the Stable channel. According to the Chrome Releases blog, the consumer-facing release channel is in the midst of being updated to v69, which includes Linux application support — at least, on supported devices. The update also includes other features, such as a refreshed UI for browsing the filesystem, expanded dictation support for text entry, red-tinted Night Light, and some tablet-centric tweaks (among other smaller changes).

LineageOS 15.1 Oreo now available for Moto X4, Wileyfox Swift, Moto Z2 Play, and others

The last time we visited the LineageOS project, official Oreo builds for the Nextbit Robin, Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1, and other devices became available. In the two weeks since that post, even more devices are receiving Oreo, including phones from Motorola and Wileyfox.
Without further ado, here are the new additions to the LineageOS 15.1 Oreo roster:
YU Yuphoria (lettuce), updated from 14.1
Wileyfox Swift (crackling), updated from 14.1
Wileyfox Storm (kipper), updated from 14.1
Motorola Moto X4 (payton)

A few of the above phones already have official Oreo updates, but it’s nice to have custom ROM options as well. Read MoreLineageOS 15.1 Oreo now available for Moto X4, Wileyfox Swift, Moto Z2 Play, and others was written by the awesome team at Android Police.

Google just struck a deal with a major auto alliance to run Android on millions of future cars

Google’s been at work on infiltrating the automotive industry for a long time. It’s managed to wedge its foot firmly in the door with Android Auto, which runs on a wide range of in-market cars from popular brands — but that was never the ultimate goal. After all, Android Auto essentially just mirrors features from an Android device to car’s infotainment system, it’s not Android running on a car. The latter, more desirable implementation is (somewhat confusingly) called Android Automotive.

Google shares control of AMP with the development community

Accelerated Mobile Pages, or AMP for short, has been a controversial project at Google since it was initially announced. The lack of any opt-out mechanism, poor cross-browser compatibility, and Google’s de-prioritization of AMP-less sites in search results are all major problems. However, the platform might improve in the coming months, as AMP is will no longer be fully under Google’s control.
You can find the long explanation at the source link below, but to summarize, AMP will no longer be completely controlled by Google. Read MoreGoogle shares control of AMP with the development community was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
