Marshmallow update now rolling out to T-Mobile HTC One M8 and LG G Stylo

28

If you're using an HTC One M8 or LG G Stylo on T-Mobile, your wait for Android 6.0 Marshmallow is now over. T-Mobile's support documents indicate that the Marshmallow update has started rolling out for both phones, bringing along a number of improvements, including features like Doze Mode, granular app permissions and more.

According to T-Mobile, the update for the HTC One M8 should bring it up to software version 6.20.531.5, while the LG G Stylo will move up to software version H63120b. Keep in mind that, since the update only just began rolling out, it may take some time to reach everyone. Once you do get your hands on the update, however, be sure to shout out in the comments below, and chime in on our forums with your thoughts on the update!

Choosing when to use Google Cast on Android TV

27

Google Cast and native app performance are rarely the same.

There are few modern streaming technologies as well-executed as Google Cast when it comes to getting a knowledgeable user from wanting to watch something to actually watching it. If you've got a Chromecast or Android TV box on the same wireless network, it doesn't get much simpler for those of us with our phones always in our hands. For users who went the Android TV route for their entertainment center, there are two options for streaming just about everything. You can use the Google Cast mode from your phone, or you can open the native app on Android TV and use your controller to select the video you want to watch.
