Google: First sub-$50 Android Go smartphones will be unveiled at MWC

Google announces Android Enterprise Recommended program

Google is keen on launching the developer preview of the new Android 9.0 P. Developers who have been building AR apps with it can now publish their work to the Google Play Store.

ARCore 1.0 is available for three development environments: Java, Unity and Unreal. Google is now partnering with Android manufacturers like Samsung, Huawei, Motorola, Sony and Xiaomi, to ensure that their devices coming out this year will support ARCore.

Potentially more interesting when it comes to general goal use is the updates to Google Lens which in my opinion is one of the coolest things Android does right now. Currently, I find that Lens is quite adept at differentiating between various types of flowers, but struggles at more hard things like picking a specific auto model or identifying other types of greenery. Following two developer previews, ARCore will officially be exiting its experimental phase of development at Mobile World Congress 2018 scheduled to start next week, as was previously rumored.

Update at 8:03PM ET, 2/23: Added statement from Google clarifying that a dark mode for Android is not in fact on its way, and that the company miscommunicated it on the initial Google Issue Tracker thread.

EA Officially Announces Burnout Paradise Remastered Releasing in March
But Electronic Arts soon moved Criterion Games over to work on the Need for Speed franchise, putting Burnout on the back burner. Burnout Paradise Remastered will be released on Xbox One on March 16th, 2018 for £39.99 or regional equivalent.

According to Google, ARCore is supported on over 100 million Android smartphones, which cover 13 specific models from a number of manufactures. "As these technologies continue to grow, we'll see more ways that they can help people have fun and get more done on their phones". The company says that within the next few weeks, Lens will be available to all English-language users of the latest Google Photos on Android and iOS.

Meanwhile, Google Lens, a feature that is now available Google Pixel devices and uses computer vision to quickly recognize objects, businesses, and other things around you, is said to release for both Google Assistant and Google Photos in the next few weeks.

Since Google Lens' launch, the company has added text selection features and the ability to create contacts and events from a photo with one tap. Google specifically mentions that soon it will be able to identify specific dog breeds in photos, types of flowers, and more.
