New Nexus Rumours Surface

We have some big news about the upcoming Nexus by Motorola. It seems like the phone won’t be called Nexus 6, but instead, it will use a new, much more intriguing name. The report suggests that the upcoming Nexus will be called Nexus X. However, we would like to point out that the name isn’t official as of now and is basically used by Motorola only for the moment but we hope that it gets to be the official name since the conventional Nexus naming game is a bit of a bore now.

The chances of ‘Nexus X’ becoming the official name are quite high, as for the model number, the Nexus X is supposed to have ‘XT1100′ as the model number. That being said, we don’t have more information on the naming scheme at the moment.  Continue Reading →

LG released the much awaited LG G3 back in June, earlier this year. The smart phone quickly became the favourite one for both the users and critics alike.

Google Voice Search Updated With Multilingual Support

Ever since the Google Voice Search made its debut on Android, it has come a long way and it just keeps improving. The latest update brings the much awaited multilingual support for the Google Voice Search. Users can now add multiple languages and then use them for voice searches. Google Voice Search will now allow the users up to 5 different languages based on their own preferences. However, the best feature that comes with this update is the ability of Google Voice Search to differentiate between different languages between your searches. If you still don’t understand how this works. Ask Google something in English and then use some word from your other listed language and Google Voice Search will have no issues recognising it. Quite amazing.

This update is pretty nifty as it doesn’t make you skim through several menus just to access the languages you want. You can simply add your 5 preferred languages. However, if you are willing to use the ‘Ok, Google’ command in those languages, then sadly it won’t work. Google Voice Search currently supports that only in English but are hoping that Google blesses us with that feature in near future. The update is currently rolling out and will take some time to reach all the device, keep an eye out on your Google Play Store or on the status bar for a notification and let us know what you think of the latest update.
