YouTube is finally blessing us with higher frame rate, Google is updating another app with Material Design and Pebble brings new features.
We have been waiting for 60 fps support to come to YouTube for a while, and today seems to mark its arrival date. As first spotted by our gaming friends at Kotaku, some videos have started showing up in 60 fps frame rates.
Users must watch the videos in HD for this feature to be activated. It also only works with Chrome and Safari. Give it a go with the video below!
Opinion: I must say I am loving the new 60 fps support. The video below does look buttery smooth and offers a much more pleasant experience.
Google is going all out with their Material Design updates. Today’s focus is all over the Google Drive app for Android, which has received a nice re-design, as well as some other features.
Added improvements include the activity stream additions, easier file management, sharing improvements and the usual flurry of bug fixes.
Opinion: The new app is looking very snazzy, so go download it straight from the Google Play Store to see what these changes are all about.
New features have arrived for Pebble users, but not everyone will be able to enjoy them just yet. The new Android beta app has finally arrived and it offers some features we have all been hoping to hear about.
For starters, a Notification menu now allows you to get notifications from any app in your device. Support for certain notifications was limited before. In addition, users can now end in-progress phone calls from their watches.
Opinion: It’s nice to see these slight discrepancies being worked out, especially as we see more complex smart watches jumping in the market. You can be part of this beta too! Just go sign up at Pebble’s website.
