[APK] Google Replaces Dogfood Translate Version and Updates Play Movies & TV App

Yesterday, we had a rather healthy dose of Google Update Wednesday, thanks to updates to Chrome Beta, Drive, Hangouts, My Tracks, and Translate. This was promptly followed by a new Google Email app, which unfortunately also meant the potential loss of yet another formerly open source application. Now, we have an incremental update to Google’s Play Movies & TV app, as well as yet another update to Translate–this time without the dogfooding.

First up, Google issued yet another update to its Translate app. You may recall that yesterday, a dogfed version of Translate unintentionally made its way out to certain consumers via the Play Store. This version, which came in at 3.0.8, has been promptly followed up by a non-dogfood 3.0.10. This unfortunately means the loss of the cute dogfood icon in both the application icon, as well as when switching translation direction in the app. Aside from that, there are no known changes between this and yesterday’s release.

Next, we have Play Movies & TV, which actually began rolling out late last night. Just like most of the app updates we saw yesterday, this one is pretty minor by bringing only one noticeable user-facing feature, which is wishlist support. This list can be viewed both in the app’s Watch Now section, as well as in the slide-out “hamburger” menu on the left panel.

All of these app updates will make their way out to consumer devices through the Play Store via a staged rollout. Naturally, not every device will be in initial wave. However, we’ve gone ahead and mirrored the APKs over on our DevHost account for your sideloading pleasure:

Which OEM Would You Like to Help?

Most manufacturers have moments of greatness and moments of decadence, and in the past few years we've some of our favorite companies' tables turned. Some are stagnating, some are struggling, some lack direction. Despite this, we often hold them dear to our hearts. Many of them could use a hand, be it with design, marketing, or other tasks. If you could help out an OEM and take it back to its golden days, which one would it be?

Root T-Mobile S6/Edge on 5.1.1 Without Tripping Knox

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process. It's a slippery slope...
