Google’s letting you share your Play Store purchases with your family

Published

on

Nutshell:

Google launched a new feature today called Google Play Family Library that lets you share your Play Store purchases with up to five other family members.

More:

It’s a good move for users, even though Google is playing catch up here – Apple’s been allowing this for about two years – but right now, only people in the US are eligible to use it.

A wider rollout to Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom will follow.

Well, luckily for you, we’ve put together this list to point you in the right direction.

It’s worth noting that some of the devices/services in the list below have been announced, but not yet implemented – and other products haven’t yet gone on sale, but when they do, they’ll work with Apple HomeKit and the HomePod.

  • SAVE ENERGY WITH NEST: Nest introduces the 3rd generation Nest Learning Thermostat. With four beautiful colors to choose from and an easy to read display, this thermostat will help make your home not only smart but energy efficient. With just a few manual adjustments, the Nest Thermostat can learn your habits and start to save you money by automatically adjusting the temperature.
  • READ THE DISPLAY FROM ACROSS THE ROOM: The Nest Thermostat does something new. It's called Farsight, and it lights up to show you the temperature, weather or time. You can even choose a digital or analog clock face. Farsight is big and bright on the beautiful display - you can see it from across the room.
  • A STYLE FOR EVERY HOME: The Nest Learning Thermostat now comes in four fantastic colors; Copper, Stainless Steel, Black, and White. Choose copper to add a warm touch. Stainless steel is perfect for a classic, versatile look. Black blends in with dark walls and stylish decor. And white looks great in simple, modern homes.
  • WORKS WITH NEST: Nest has worked hard to design thoughtful devices to help keep you safe and secure. Nest devices not only communicate with each other but also with the other smart devices around your home. Your Nest Secure can use your smart light bulbs to help get your attention in the event of an emergency; your smart washer and dryer can take the data from Nest and run the next load of laundry when energy demand is low. Look for the Works with Nest badge and let Nest handle the rest.
  • THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE A NEST HOME: We love home. It's the best place in the world. But not everything inside our homes is lovable. Some things beep at us; fail without warning; keep us in the dark. There are things we've learned to ignore. We think these things should do more. Nest is focused on making simple, human, delightful things. That's how we're creating the thoughtful home: A home that takes care of the people inside it and the world around it.

Product Description

The Nest Learning Thermostat is here to help make your home work for you. Using smart learning technology, the Nest Learning Thermostat can learn what you like and automatically adjust itself to your comfort level. After a couple of days of manual adjustments, the Nest Learning Thermostat can anticipate when you would want to turn the temperature up, to help keep you cozy in the morning, and set the temperature down as you head to bed. The Thermostat also works in combination with your Nest Cellphone App. Remotely change the temperature so that your house can be warm when you come home or, turn the temperature down to save energy while you're away. The Nest Thermostat is just one part of your heating and cooling system. But it can keep an eye on the rest of it. You’ll get an alert on your phone if there’s something wrong – like temperatures are so low your pipes could burst. And if it looks like your furnace is acting up, the Nest Thermostat will send you an alert. Nest is focused...

Google Home gets one of its missing key skills, but still ‘months’ away in UK

Published

on

Google announced today that its Home smart assistant is getting an update today that brings support for up to six individual people in a household, thereby allowing each person to hear their own schedule, music, reminders and other Home-controllable services.

While that’s rolling out in the US from today, it’s due ‘in the coming months’ for owners in the UK, which leaves anyone without voice range of your Home able to hear your schedule. That’s probably not a huge problem for anyone living with their family, versus a shared apartment, for example, but it’s still a frustrating limitation that will quickly see your Spotify playlists and taste profile ruined by general household use.

If you’re in the US, you should (soon, if not already) be able to see a card within the Home app telling you that the option is available. Once each individual voice is registered – and tied to a different Google account – it’ll be able to recognise the different voices and return the appropriate information specific to that person.

Of course, with Home still not able to do things like adding a calendar entry – it can read one back to you, but not add one – supporting multiple people in the home is a necessary, if not meteoric, milestone towards making the device genuinely useful.

Best new Early Access Android games to download today

Published

on

Finding new games on the Google Play store is a never-ending challenge, so we’ve put the effort in for you to find some of the best new and currently unreleased Early Access games available.

Naturally, as they’re unreleased, you might still find some issues and errors. There shouldn’t be anything too major, but you’ve been warned. This list will be updated over time, so feel free to bookmark it for future.

SUP Multiplayer Racing

Up to 4-person, live multi-player racing with a bright graphical style you’re either going to love or hate. To race your way to the top, you’ll need to upgrade your cars – and once you’ve had enough of everything the game has to offer, you can start creating your own tracks too.

Super Sticky Bros

If platformer games are too frustrating for you generally, try Super Sticky Bros – it’s not easy, but there’s no limit on the number of times you can die and you’ll never have to go back too far when you do.

The controls are ridiculously simple too, with just left, right and jump buttons on-screen. Your goal, ultimately, is to reach the top of the screen, which continually extends upwards. It’s a pretty addictive, free, little time-killer.

Forward Assault

Forward Assault is more of one to watch for future potental than it is one to play right now if you like your games polished. Or finished.

The game is the follow up to the hugely popular (between 5 and 10 million downloads) Bullet Force, and keeps to the first-person shooter genre. With realistic graphics for both locations and weapons, what Forward Assault offers is worth checking out.

Antidote

If facing wave after wave of foes in a tower defense game is more your speed, Antidote is one of the better new pre-launches to hit Google Play.

In essence, you need to defend the body from attacking infections, bacteria and other bodily ne’erdowells by tactically deploying your defenses. With 17 levels and 14 different abilities to check out already, it’s not far from release.

Bonus game!

Battle of Polytopia

This one is no longer an unreleased game, but it’s been taking so much of my gaming time lately that it’d be remiss not to mention it.

Battle of Polytopia is a turn-based strategy game that pits your tribe, with unique starting talents, against other tribes on a square map. When you start, only your own small patch of the map is visible, but as you explore and research new abilities you’ll come up against rival tribes.

How you deal with them is up to you.
