Welcome to the 272nd Android Apps Weekly Edition! Here are the big titles from last week:
- Microsoft has some big plans for Microsoft Edge. For starters, it replaces EdgeHTML for the much more popular Chromium. Microsoft claims that changing them helps to put more updates and work better on different platforms. The good news is that it can allow some serious developments like MacOS support. But that also means that Chrome has attacked another competitor. Opera also uses Chromium as the basis for its work. In any case, you can click on the link to learn more.
- Google Chat Apps have a bad week. Google Hangouts becomes a chat platform similar to Slack or Discord. The change should take place by 2020. Once there were a few features that were not the Android messages, so it's an amazing change. Google then announced Google Allo formwork. Google transfers many of the features of Android Messages, SMS application with RCS support. It seems that Google thinks RCS is the future. These are two more Google social platforms to bite the dust in 2018, along with Spaces and Google+.
- Epic Games had an exciting week. Fortnite received a new game feature. Now there is a creative mode similar to the Minecraft creative mode. The company also announced a competitor to Steam and the Play Store. The Epic Games Store stores computer and mobile games in the same place. This can be a great job because no other store covers both platforms. This is also not a half bad idea with how many games in India get both PC and mobile versions. We'll see how this works.
- Google officially announced Hummingbird this week. The Hummingbird platform is a simple idea with a sophisticated performance. It allows developers to build an application that runs on different platforms, including iOS, web and Android. All-in-one tools are generally fake with support for a single platform with several functions per second. Hummingbird has the opportunity to be the first of its kind to avoid being terrible.

- Google has announced its choice for the best 2018s in the Play Store. There were many winners in a number of categories, including PUBG Mobile (favorite and best game), YouTube TV (favorite fans), Avengers: Infinity War, Drops (best app), Fire and Fury by Michael Wolff (best ebook), 12 life rules by Jordan B. Peterson (best audiobook) and The Walking Dead (the best TV show). You can click on the link to see all the selections and check them on Google Play!
Gorogoa is a new puzzle game in India. It features elements similar to the "Noodlecake Games" series. The game features a bunch of comic-style panels that players are stacking and combining in a complete story. It includes hand-drawn graphics, fun stories and simple mechanics. The game itself is quite fun to play. However, carefully crafted animations and history are the real story here. Those who love rational stories should enjoy this. The game is a little short, but most people do not mind. It runs for $ 4.99. without in-app purchases or ads. This is also the same developer of Florence – a story about life.
Yahoo Play is the latest app from, well, Yahoo. This is an application for pop culture and has tones of celebrity, pop culture and entertainment. He also does a bunch of other things. This is basically an application for news with pop culture news. However, it also includes original video series along with trivia and test games. Honestly, there are a lot of things to do in this app. However, it suffers from bugs and slow loading time. She definitely needs some work. This can be fun for those who have fun, but we recommend waiting a while until Yahoo does not solve the problems.
Command and Conquer: Competitors saw their global launch earlier this week. This is a duel-style battle game. Players choose a hero, build an army and fight other players online in one against one battle. Game mechanics also includes strategic elements. Players must control the battlefield and re-supply their troops to win. Of course, your army can also be personalized. The game has some serious balancing problems at the moment. Low level players combine with players significantly more powerful and a little annoying. Otherwise, this is not really a half bad game.
Google's annual Google Tracker application is live in the Google Play Store as well as on the web. It has the same content as last year. This includes a bunch of mini-games for kids, a countdown timer to the big day and some other little entertainment. The app then follows Santa on Christmas Eve to enjoy the young children. Minigames are not inspirational or nothing, but are good enough for most younger children. It's a colorful, fun way to track Santa Claus every year. It's also completely free, with no ads or in-app purchases. Thanks, Google!
Absolute Drift is the latest game from Noodlecake Studios. This is definitely a mobile game with a racing theme. Players are worn around the corners, avoiding obstacles and collecting a little red balls for points. The game is not fast, but it is surprisingly intense. There's also a relaxing soundtrack to bring it all together. The game also features six cars, three game modes, night mode, charts and even support for a Bluetooth controller. This costs an extremely reasonable $ 2.99 and there are no ads or additional in-app purchases. What do you dislike?
