5 Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week – Android Apps Weekly

Facebook is the latest company in the game streaming space. It wants to offer mobile game streaming through its official Android Apps and on the website. Some of the launch titles include Asphalt 9: Legends, WWE SuperCard, and PGA Golf Tour Shootout.

The feature is currently rolling out regionally across the US and there are some restrictions as well. For instance, you need a good Internet connection in order to use it. More areas are coming soon as well as more games. Netflix is potentially experimenting with an audio-only mode.

XDA-Developers found evidence of such a mode in a recent APK teardown. It may seem silly since Netflix has a bunch of TV shows and movies. However, the service also has a bunch of comedy stand-ups and documentaries that might work pretty well in an audio-only mode.

We’ll keep you updated if we hear more. Google Play is testing out a comparison feature for apps. It’s only available for media players right now and lets you compare things like resolution support, whether or not it streams, and whether or not it works offline.

It only works in version 22.4.28 of the Play Store and even if you have it, Google probably needs to flip a switch for you to see it. Hit the link to learn more details.Sony revamped its PlayStation app just in time for the PS5 launch.

The new version of the app includes a dedicated store, the ability to voice chat (similar to the Xbox app), and remote control capabilities for the upcoming PS5. You can also answer and send messages to other players, launch games, and manage your storage.

It’s actually a fairly huge update and brings it more in line with Xbox’s already excellent mobile app.Apple is likely working on a search engine to rival Google. It’s only a rumor, but one with a lot of steam behind it. Google is in the middle of an antitrust lawsuit with the US government and that may bode poorly for Apple.

Additionally, it’s likely the company doesn’t want to rely on Google for its search functionality. In any case, you can hit the link to learn more about it.
