Last night, Google released six new Android apps under its digital wellbeing program to balance your digital diet. These apps ranges from a special launcher to serve up relevant apps based on the time of the day and location, to a group game that challenges you and your friends not to unlock your phone.

However, the most simple, and perhaps the most effective app is a live wallpaper app. Unlock Clock, as the name suggests, is a live wallpaper that’ll show you the number of times you’ve unlocked your phone on a particular day.

Rich Communication Services (RCS) has been a long time coming. Billed as the future of text messaging and the technology that will eventually replace SMS and MMS, it’s been Google’s pet project as the way to ‘fix’ messaging on mobile devices ever since the company gave up on Hangouts and Allo. Instead of using a separate messaging app, RCS works just like regular old texting, except it adds a bunch of features usually only available in apps like WhatsApp or Messenger.

As a reporter, I often need to record interviews or Q&A sessions. But it’s painfully tiring to go back and manually transcribe the recordings. Surely, there are few apps that can help me out. However, most of them have a limit on free transcriptions and you usually have to go through the whole process of uploading your recording.

According to a report from XDA Developers, the recorder app leaked from Pixel 4’s code has transcription and audio search abilities. What’s more, these features also work without an internet connection — which means no more times wasted on uploading recordings on external services.
