Earlier today, Motorola’s latest flagship — the new Moto X — went up for pre-order on AT&T as well as on the company’s own website.

Now, in order to create awareness and promote the device, Motorola has uploaded a bunch of adverts for it on its YouTube channel showing off its key features including the 13MP camera, Moto Assist and Moto Voice.

Billy, a new Android app for music lovers, helps you keep up with current music trends by presenting you with the latest Billboard chart and allowing you to sample each and every track. It also gives you handy links to official YouTube videos, and helps you find albums by the artists you enjoy.

Google has confirmed plans to bring an offline mode to YouTube that will allow users to download videos and watch them later without a data connection. The feature will be rolled out to users “in the coming weeks,” but there is a catch.

When Samsung first unveiled the Galaxy Note in 2011, a lot of people laughed. Heck, I know I did: I said at the time that Samsung’s ginormous new product was a rip-off of the Apple Newton.

However, with the iPhone 6 Plus landing on Friday, I’ll be the first person to admit that while I still think a 5.5-inch smartphone is ridiculous, a lot of people seem to want one.

So when Samsung releases an ad, serving up claim chowder to all the journalists like Mashable, Boy Genius Report, and the Wall Street Journal who laughed at the Note three years ago, I have to say, they have it coming to them. They were right!

Check out Samsung’s full ad after the jump, in which Samsung talks a little bit about the many useful things you can do with a larger display.

Google has published a pair of new ads on YouTube that remind us how awesomely powerful its “Ok Google” search function is on Android. The simple yet meaningful clips demonstrate how the feature is used every day to quickly access all kinds of information.
