WatchON, one of the more useful services that comes baked into Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface for Android, is being wiped out in all but two markets, the South Korean company has confirmed today. Users will be able to keep content they’ve purchased through WatchON, while the Galaxy Note 4’s new Smart Remote app is expected to replace its IR remote functionality on other Galaxy smartphones.

Chromecast is already excellent value for money at its regular retail price of $30, so Amazon’s Black Friday discount, which brings the price down to just $22.99, makes it an absolute steal. And is if that wasn’t enough, the device also comes with two months of Hulu Plus absolutely free.


Yesterday, at an official Gamescom press conference in Cologne, Germany, Microsoft announced and detailed the contents of both its upcoming updates for the Xbox One and SmartGlass companion application.



Today, Google started pushing out an update for its official Google+ application via the Play Store. In terms of added functionality, this upgrade brings users the ability to cast their timeline to any Chromecast connected TV, in addition to a handful of bug fixes, stability improvements and speed optimizations.


Google updated Chromecast this week to finally enable Android Mirroring, a feature which lets you beam everything you see on your Android-powered smartphone or tablet to your TV. It’s great for showing off your photos, surfing the web on the big screen, and for enjoying content inside of apps that don’t yet offer direct Chromecast support.
