A brand new instrument from Google was once registered with the FCC this week below the obscure descriptor of “Wi-fi Tool.” In response to the proof to be had, we presented somewhat a couple of believable explanations for what this thriller Google product may well be, together with a brand new Nest instrument.

This leads us to consider that as of late’s Google “Wi-fi Tool” is most probably one thing within the Nest lineup. Whilst Google successfully confirmed its hand at Google I/O for what to anticipate from Pixel within the fall, the corporate has no longer teased a lot of its subsequent technology of good house audio system, cameras, and extra.

With only a few days left till its legit unveil, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 gave the impression in a complete Amazon record this week. As you’d be expecting, the record integrated somewhat a couple of legit product photographs, specifications, and different information about Samsung’s subsequent foldable telephone, maximum particularly a divulge of the remodeled S Pen.

The opposite symbol presentations a brand new S Pen case for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 in a green-ish grey colour that looks to check the telephone inside. The stylus additionally fits that colour. That’s without a doubt notable, as black was once the one and best possibility for remaining 12 months’s S Pen. The case additionally has some type of line along the S Pen, nevertheless it’s no longer right away glaring what goal that serves.

Breaking from the standard agenda, Google’s Pixel telephones didn’t obtain the August safety patch this previous Monday. Whilst a “Pixel Replace Bulletin” detailed the adjustments coming in that August patch, the one factor that has to this point launched is a minor repair to the July patch.


Google lists 40 CVEs throughout “Kernel parts” and “Pixel” which are addressed by way of the 2022-08-05 patch stage. Vulnerabilities vary from average to vital and canopy parts just like the kernel, modem, and digital camera. 

Then again, this replace was once clearly postponed as OTA photographs didn’t arrive at 10 a.m. PT. Further proof of a extend comes from Verizon, which revealed information about an sudden replace for the (*13*)Pixel 6 and (*10*)6 Professional. 

Our APK Perception group found out this week that Google TV is getting ready to release a collection of fifty loose streaming channels. An in-app graphic (*9*)printed a listing of over part of the ones channels, with choices to be had for information, sports activities, TV presentations, and flicks.

To be transparent, those are distinct from different choices to be had on Google TV as of late, as the ones integrations require you to download an app, whilst the brand new textual content says the channels are to be had “with out the want to […] download.” Extra explicitly, the launcher refers to those as “Google TV Channels.”

In different places in Google TV information, a fortify web page has printed that the Chromecast with Google TV would possibly quickly be getting an replace in response to the August 2022 safety patch. Then again, the hyperlink to the bulletin for that replace results in an error web page, making it onerous to make certain of Google’s meant timeline.

At the one hand, it might be a bit of sudden to peer Google replace the Chromecast once more so briefly. That stated, remaining month’s replace best featured the Would possibly 2022 safety stage, that means the August patch can be subsequent within the agenda because it falls precisely one quarter of a 12 months later.
