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.


Google has introduced a new “People” section to the Play Store that helps users discover new apps, games, and other content based on what their friends like. It presents you with a whole bunch of titles that have been rated or reviewed by the people in your Google+ circles, and suggests other users you may wish to follow.


If you live in the U.K. and you’re thinking about picking up a new Sony Xperia Z2 in the coming weeks, then you may want to consider getting it on Vodafone. The company is currently giving the first 3,000 customers who pre-order the device a free 32-inch Sony Bravia TV.

Virgin TV Anywhere App

Virgin Media has today uploaded its official TV Anywhere Android application to the Google Play Store, so Virgin Media TiVo subscribers in the U.K. will now be able to watch live television or recorded programs on their Android devices, anytime, anyplace, anywhere! In order to download and install the application, you need to have a non-rooted phone or tablet running Android 2.3 through to Android 4.3. Strangely, there is no support for 4.4 KitKat at this time.


LG may not think the Galaxy Round is a real curved glass smartphone, but Samsung certainly does. In fact, its first Galaxy Round TV ad is all about things with curves… such as a baby’s hand, an avocado, an egg, a glass, and a hip flask.

It’s quite possibly the strangest smartphone ad you’ll see this week.
