If you haven’t had a chance to really dig into it yet, don’t worry. We’ve got a hands-on video that covers all the high (and low) points of Google’s new messaging app that’s almost as good as playing with the app yourself. Be sure to check it out below. Read more
Building and analyzing databases is a big part of software development, whether that be in local system applications or web-based applications. With that in mind, it’s important to understand how they work and how you can build one yourself, especially if you’re looking for a profession within the technology realm. Getting this type of knowledge can be expensive, unfortunately. But thankfully, we’ve got a Database Administration Super Bundle over on Talk Android Deals that’ll teach you all about things like MongoDB, MySQL and so much more.
Later this year, the HTC Bolt will launch exclusively on Sprint’s network.
We have an image of the device that we’re sharing with you today.
Google launched its highly anticipated smart messaging service Allo last night, and it’s pretty much turned out to be a disaster from the start. The premise behind Allo is that Google Assistant will add seamless contextual information to conversations, but with Assistant only being a “Preview Edition” it certainly doesn’t work as intended.

Searching for files or folders on the cloud is usually only as good as the terms you are typing in, which means if you are incorrectly spelling a word, the results may not show what you are looking for. For Google Drive users at least, the act of searching for an item has just become a little easier thanks to Google integrating its search technology with it, enabling users to find files or document with greater speed and ease.

Google is rolling out its new messaging platform to Android and iOS devices worldwide after months of waiting by the public.
Allo, which was announced earlier this year at Google I/O 2016, is finally live. The company is positioning the platform as a “smart messaging app” that uses internal and external information to create meaningful conversations between people.
Speed, expression, intelligence, and privacy are the areas that Allo focues heavily on.
It seems like such a small thing, but adding a reboot button to the power menu on an Android device can be a big deal. Manufacturers like Samsung and LG that put their own user interfaces on Android devices include this option, but for some reason Google has held out on supplying this option in stock Android.
