– Sep. 30th 2022 6:55 am PT
The Pixel Watch is set to debut in less than a week, and we know it’s going to be a pricey option. Now, we’re getting a clearer picture as to what the Pixel Watch will cost in the UK and Europe, as price details surface.
To recap what we know so far, we first reported that the Pixel Watch’s cellular model would cost $399 in the US. Later, we further learned that the Bluetooth/Wi-Fi model would start at $349 in the US, as backed up by retail sources.
Now, Roland Quandt of WinFuture reports on Twitter that Pixel Watch prices in the UK will line up with what we’ve heard so far.
According to Quandt, the list price for the Pixel Watch in the UK is £339. From that, he claims that the price of the Pixel Watch in Europe will be €379 for the Bluetooth/Wi-Fi model and €419 for the cellular option. That’s pretty much what we expected, given the US pricing, but ..
Twitter for Android officially rolling out revamped UI for direct messages [U]
– Sep. 30th 2022 11:23 am PT
If you send a direct message on Twitter for Android this week, you might see a new look.
As spotted by Max Jambor yesterday, Twitter seems to be testing out a new UI for direct messages in its Android app.
Update 9/30: Twitter has now officially confirmed this new redesign is rolling out widely. We’ve added further details to the post to reflect this, as well as more images from Twitter.
The new design puts the message text box in a row of its own, instead of being lumped in with the image attachment, GIF search, and send buttons. There’s also a rounded look to this box which feels much more in line with the design of Android in recent years.
Our Dylan Roussel was quick to point out that this new look comes as a result of the redesign using Google’s Jetpack Compose tools. He previously found the UI in development as early as June of this ye..
What’s the plan for Stadia exclusive games? Here’s what we know so far
– Sep. 30th 2022 9:58 am PT
Google Stadia shuttered its first-party studios barely a year after it debuted, meaning no first-party exclusive games were ever announced, much less released. But there were several games that were released only on Stadia, and we don’t yet know what the future holds for these exclusives. Here’s what we know so far.

September’s Google Play system updates: Play Store redesign on Wear OS, new Wallet features [U]
– Sep. 30th 2022 11:15 am PT
Google has laid out some of what Android fans can expect from the September 2022 Google Play system updates, including improvements to Kids Space on tablets.
Update: This latest set of updates also includes new audio switching features for Wear OS and improvements to the Play Store.
A significant portion of what makes Android so useful is the way so many apps are integrated with Google Play Services. In recent months, Google has grouped together Play Services, the Play Store, and the “Google Play system updates” introduced in Android 10. Every month, the company lays out what changes to expect from this trio, which they’ve dubbed “Google System Updates,” and they steadily add more patch notes over the course of the month.
The easiest way to check whether you need to update Google Play Services on your phone is to follow a di..
