Chromebooks recently gained the experimental ability to print to local printers with the release of Chrome OS Version 57 to the stable channel. That’s great news if you want to use a Chromebook with network printers that don’t support Google Cloud Print.

After A Year Of Silence, VLC For Android Is Updated

After A Year Of Silence, VLC For Android Is Updated

When an app goes silent for more than a year, it’s reasonable to assume that it has been killed off — but that’s not the case with VLC. The Android version of the popular media player has been updated to version 2.5 after getting stuck at 2.0 for 13 months.

Work has been going on for VLC 3.0, but you would have been forgiven for thinking that the app had just been forgotten about. With the launch of VLC 2.5 there are a number of new features to enjoy including a new dynamic UI, a night mode, and picture-in-picture support for Oreo users.

VLC is famous for being able to handle just about any video format imaginable, and now there’s support for 360° videos. Bringing things into the Oreo age means that there’s not only PiP support, but also a more dynamic Material look to everything — complete with blurred backgrounds.
