Google adds Home speakers to its software preview program

  Google adds Home speakers to its software preview program Google is giving you a way to get updates for its Home speaker before other people do. To sign up for the Preview Program, fire up the Google Home app on your phone and go to Devices to find your Home speaker. Tap the hamburger menu on the upper right corner of the device you want to enroll, click Settings then Preview Program. After that, you'll just have to choose to get email notifications to get pinged whenever you can download an update, and you're good. If the option isn't available for you, it's possible that all the slots are currently taken. Try another time in case Google opens up more.

We’re big fans of the Google Pixel’s camera, which uses some complex software to take its fantastic images. A Ukrainian app developer has found a way to port that software to any device that uses a Hexagon 680 digital signal processor, so users can take their own HDR+ pictures without the Google Pixel.

The developer, who goes by the name B-S-G, posted up a modified version of Google Camera, that brings the HDR + image processing to any device using a Hexagon 680 digital signal processor, which includes ones equipped with a Snapdragon 820, 821, or 835 processor. XDA writer Adam Conway reported that he tested the revised app on an variety of devices — an LG G6, a OnePlus 3, a OnePlus 3T, a OnePlus 5 and a Samsung Galaxy S8 — and found some real improvements with the resulting images.

XDA also looked at the code to make sure that there wasn’t anything malicious in it, and proclaimed it safe to install. While doing so, they found references to Muskie (a rumored Pixel device that appears to have been shelved) Pixel XL2, which leads them to suspect that the modifications are tricking the app into thinking that it’s running on the Google Pixel’s successor.

While this is a cool improvement, it should be noted that the software in the Google Pixel is specifically tailored for the camera hardware in the device. This isn’t going to give you a perfect Pixel camera, but it does look as though it can put Google’s software to work for your images if you don’t have one.
