Android has long allowed us to access certain settings using our voice, but in the latest Google Search update for Lollipop, you’ll actually be able to change them, too. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and the flashlight can all be toggled simply by talking to your phone.

Action Launcher 3, one of the best third-party launchers for Android, today received a terrific new update that adds a bunch of welcome new features and improvements.

It’s now incredibly easy to resize your icons, set your default home screen, and backup your layouts, while the awesome new Quickpage feature puts your favorite apps and widgets just a swipe away.

Facebook-Android

Facebook today became the first third-party Android app (not build by Google) to surpass 1 billion installs from Google Play. It’s even more popular than a number of Google’s own apps, including Hangouts, Google Search, and even Chrome.

Google voice search on Android now has the ability to detect up to five different languages in just one search. Designed to help people who speak more than one language, it allows you ask one question in Spanish and another in French, and it will automatically understand both requests.

Google is in the process of quietly rolling out a server-side update for its official Search application via the Play Store. Once updated, users will be able to receive train and bus reminders from their Gmail reservations. They will also notice that flight cards now produce information about alternative travel measures when delays occur.
