[APK] Chrome 37 Brings Material Design Makeover, Camera Gets Minor Update

Another Wednesday has come, and in most parts of the world gone. As is more often than not the case, the day was marked with a few Google first party Android app updates. Today’s updates come in the form of a massive visual makeover for Chrome (Stable), bringing it to major version parity with July’s Chrome Beta update, as well as a minor update for Google Camera.

Although today’s updates aren’t too numerous, they’re still certainly exciting. Starting off today’s updates, we have Chrome Stable 37.0.2062.117. Similar to the beta channel update we saw a little over a month ago, today’s update to Chrome (stable) 37 brings us the Material Design UI elements and feel that we now know and love. This consists of that new start page, cleaner iconography, improved spacing, and more.

In addition to the rather significant update to Chrome stable, we also have a minor bugfix update to Google Camera, bringing us to version 2.3.020 (up from 2.3.017 about two months ago). As one would expect from such a minor version number bump, there’s not much in the way of changed features. However, it can reasonably be assumed that there are some under-the-hood bugfixes in there somewhere.

Both 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 Google Drive for your sideloading pleasure:

XPrivacy for Android Lollipop – XDA Xposed Tuesday

Have you ever been on the Google Play Store and saw an app that you wanted to try, but the sheer amount of permissions put you off? Why does a LED Color app need access to my calendar? Sometimes app developers tell you that it’s because of the ads. However, other times, apps don’t explain why they are spying on your text messages. In this episode of XDA Xposed Tuesday, XDA TV Producer TK reviews an Xposed Module that enables...

XDA Office Space: Frankenstein’s Perfect IM Client?

The portal’s decentralized XDA office lies in a Hangouts chatroom, where we discuss the latest developments that hit the blogosphere, critique them and figure out what we can do to add a new or original point of view. We came to love this little virtual office, which sees messaging 24/7 due to the international nature of our team.
