Google is introducing a new Messenger application with Android 5.0 which replaces Hangouts or Messaging as the default app for SMS and MMS. And users have to wait until the Android 5.0 Lollipop update starts rolling out to get a feel of this new app. But thanks to a few keen and curious developers, the app has been extracted from the latest developer preview of Android 5.0, meaning that the apk file is now available for download. Fortunately enough, the installation of this app doesn’t require root access. So all you have to do...

The HTC One M8 smartphone on T-Mobile will start receiving an update tomorrow which will bring the Eye Experience features to the device. The good news was given away by an HTC representative on Twitter. Although the rollout of the update officially begins tomorrow, it could take a while to appear on all compatible devices, so maintain patience if you don’t see it early tomorrow. The manufacturer started rolling out the Eye Experience feature to the One M8 starting early October, and it was only a matter of time before the carrier...

The OnePlus One smartphone will finally go up for pre-order starting next week, according to a release issued by the company. But there’s a caveat here. The pre-orders will go live only for an hour, which means that there will only be a limited number of units on offer. This is the company’s way of making up for the invites fiasco which left fans red faced. OnePlus promised to begin pre-orders for the smartphone in October and it’s good to see the company is living up to its word, albeit in a slightly unconventional...

The Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 smartphone is launching via AT&T later this week, according to a statement issued by the carrier. The smartphone will be made available for $474.99 off contract or $149.99 if you’re looking to sign a 2-year agreement. The Galaxy Mega 2 can also be had under the Next 18 plan for $19.80 a month while the Next 12 plan will set you back by $23.75 a month. It’s clearly not the cheapest smartphone available out there and the specs sheet isn’t all that convincing either. The Galaxy Mega 2 is...

Android 5.0 Lollipop is expected to bring a flurry of changes to the system. And one among the many changes is going to be made with the Gmail app according to a new revelation. The app which currently supports only Google accounts will finally support email accounts from other providers like Yahoo or even Outlook. Users with both Google and non-Google account can perform a simple swipe to switch between accounts. It’s quite a nifty addition and one which will make lives a lot easier for customers, especially if they rely on Exchange...

Interested users can now download the Android 5.0 Lollipop keyboard through an apk file available on the XDA forums. This features a flatter design and an overall cleaner look compared to the Android 4.4 keyboard, so it’s certainly an upgrade from what users are currently accustomed to. The keyboard will appear by default on stock Android devices when the Lollipop update arrives in November, but OEM devices will probably never see it as they have their own keyboards. The likes of Samsung, HTC and Sony are expected to start rolling...
