5 Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week – Android Apps Weekly

Welcome to the 419th edition of Android Apps Weekly. Here are the big headlines from the last week:

  • Twitter had an outage this week. It wasn’t a huge deal and it was over in a little while. Still, it disrupted enough that it was noticeable to some folks. Most of the issues were on the west coast, but people all over the place felt some disruption.
  • Google TV is apparently getting a restricted mode at some point. An APK teardown revealed some code that alluded to the changes. The restricted mode is mostly for kids so parents can sign them in and then the kids can watch whatever they want. Google TV Channels also seems like it’s coming soon. Hit the link to learn more.
  • Signal Private Messenger launched a new feature this week. You can now switch your Signal phone number, but still keep your chats. There is a process to port your data to your new number and an alert in the chats that will tell your friends that you’ve switched numbers.
  • Google may make the Android 12 dynamic theme support mandatory across all devices. It’s not at this point and some OEMs don’t include it. However, this may change. Google may go so far as to hold out support for Google Play Services until OEMs support it.
  • Google officially announced the first developer preview of Android 13 this week. Some of the changes include changes to dynamic theming to include app icon theming, a native QR code scanner, Bluetooth LE support, and a tap-to-transfer system. We’ll be covering it more in the coming weeks so stay tuned.
