[APK] Google Wallet v2 Brings Order Tracking, Translate 3.0.5 with 13 More Handwriting Recognition Languages, and Chrome Beta Gets Crash Fixes

It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means: It’s time for another round of Google first-party Android updates. Last Wednesday, we were happy to report about major updates to Chrome Beta, Google TTS, and Google Play Games. And this week, the updates are for a pair of applications that don’t always receive the most update love from Mountain View: Google Wallet and Google Translate. Oh yeah, and there’s also a very minor update for Chrome Beta.

First up, we have Google Wallet. Today’s update to version 2.0 is as big of an update as you would expect from a new major version. This update now aggregates and displays your online orders and their tracking information. This appears to work for nearly all online orders, in a manner similar to what we’ve already seen in Google Now’s Order Cards.

Next up, we have Google Translate. Today’s update bumps up the version number to 3.0.5, and in doing so brings handwriting recognition for thirteen new languages: Arabic, Bosnian, Cebuano, Gujarati, Hmong, Kannada, Maltese, Mongolian, Persian, Punjabi, Somali, Tamil, and Telugu. It also features fixes for a few unnamed crash bugs.

Finally, we have a very minor update to Chrome Beta, which simply consists of a few crash fixes. This is obviously nothing major like what we saw last week with the added Chromecast support, but at least they’re doing something—and you should probably still update your app.

To get started, simply make your way to the Google Play Store entries for Google WalletGoogle Translate, and Google Chrome Beta. But since these updates are being delivered in the form of a staged rollout, your device may not receive the update immediately. Those looking to get in on the update action a bit early can do so by visiting our Dev-Host mirrors below:

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
