Gmail's Smart Compose Now Available On All Android Devices

For the longest time ever, Smart Compose is a feature that can be found on Gmail on the desktop. For those unfamiliar, basically Smart Compose will help users complete sentences that they type in their email where Google will be able to make suggestions on how your sentence should be completed.

It later eventually found its way onto mobile where for a while, it was exclusive to Google’s Pixel smartphones. The good news is that if you’re not a Pixel owner, it seems that Smart Compose is now making its way onto non-Pixel handsets. This is according to a report from Android Police who discovered that the feature (previously exclusive to the Pixel 3 and 3 XL) is now available on other devices like the Pixel 2 XL and the OnePlus 6T.

Nintendo Has No Plans For A Switch Successor Or Price Cuts For Now

Nintendo Has No Plans For A Switch Successor or Price Cuts For Now

From what we’ve seen from other console makers, usually a variant of the flagship console is released a few years after the main release. This usually represents an update to the design of the console, more storage options, or slightly upgraded specs. So far we’ve seen Sony and Microsoft do this with the PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro, and the Xbox One S and the Xbox One X.

This is why there have been rumors that suggested that Nintendo could be planning a refresh to the Nintendo Switch, possibly even this year. For those hoping that the rumors were true, you might be disappointed to learn that will not be the case. This is according to an interview Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa did with The Sankei News (via Nintendo Everything).

Apple Music Support For Android Tablets Now Exits Beta

Apple Music Support For Android Tablets Now Exits Beta

Designing apps for tablets is not as easy as you might think. Tablets have a larger display which means that you can’t just scale up an app for smartphones and stuff it into a tablet. However due to the way we interact with our tablets, you can’t design a UI that you would normally use on a laptop or desktop computer either.

Now Apple has been working on an Android tablet UI for its Apple Music service for a while now, and the good news is that it is finally out of beta. This means that if you did not participate in the beta before that, you should be able to look forward to the new UI in the latest update to the Apple Music app.

Google's Public Dns Will Now Work With Android 9.0 Pie

Google's Public DNS Will Now Work With Android 9.0 Pie

There are many reasons why users will want to change their DNS. A good reason is privacy where using another DNS could prevent your ISP from tracking what you are doing. Another reason is that it allows users to bypass certain blocks or restrictions that their ISP might have in place, like access to certain websites.

Google’s Public DNS is one of the more popular ones available at the moment, largely thanks to the fact that it works and is free. Now it seems that Google has made some changes and updates to it (via Android Police) where it will now be fully compatible with Android 9.0 Pie. “We implemented the DNS-over-TLS specification along with the RFC 7766 recommendations to minimize the overhead of using TLS. These include support for TLS 1.3 (for faster connections and improved security), TCP fast open, and pipelining of multiple queries and out-of-order responses over a single connection.”

Not Content With Capsule Hotels, Japan Now Offers Capsule Offices Too

One of the many things that Japan is known for are its capsule hotels. These hotels are designed for the office worker who might have worked too late to take the train home, and just needs a relatively affordable place for a hot shower and a good night’s rest. However it seems that Japan has taken the capsule concept and expanded it to now offer capsule offices too.

These capsule offices can be found in East Japan Railway’s Tokyo, Shinjuku, and Shinagawa Stations. Known as “Station Work”, these are little pods that can be used for free and up to 30 minutes at a time. Each pod will provide the user with WiFi, a desk, a monitor, and also USB charging outlets.
