[APK Compendium] Minor Updates for Google TTS and Google+, and the Rest of This Week’s Updates
For yet another week, Google is seemingly intent on demonstrating that the previously dependable “Update Wednesdays” have now come to an end. Despite this, we still received quite a bit of first party Android application love from the mothership. This began with Monday’s update to Gmail 4.8, which brought the ability to save attachments directly to the cloud, and continued with Tuesday’s updates to Google+ 4.4 and Chrome stable 35. And then just yesterday, we saw a few backend updates to Google Search that brought several newly supported voice commands.
In addition to all of the updates above, Google also pushed out updates to Google TTS and yet another round of updates to Google+. The Google TTS update, which first started making its way out to consumer devices two days ago, comes in at version 184.108.40.2062895 (up from 220.127.116.110024). Nothing appears different in the UI, nor are there any changes listed in the Google Play Store listing. However, installing this update forced my own personal device to re-download all saved voice data. Because of this, it’s likely that something in the voice handling functionality was changed. We also have two new bugfix updates for Google+. They come in at versions 18.104.22.168636377 and 22.214.171.124714770 for Android 4.1+ and 4.4+, respectively. And just like for the Google TTS update, it seems like this primarily only brings bugfixes.

OnePlus is one of those companies that appear one day and next thing you know, they are all over the internet. Their original OnePlus One phone was a major success in the mobile space due to its low price yet remarkable specifications - the ultimate goal of the company and their “Never Settle” slogan. We love talking about “the little OEM that could”, not necessarily because they are good or bad, but because their business and marketing strategies are very...
