    After all of these a bit annoying server-side tests with many of their apps, including YouTube, out of the blue, Google has decided to launch a dedicated beta program for it today. Certainly, we cannot say how things are going to proceed, but we hope that from now on they will do client-side feature releases instead, because the current testing methodologies that they are using are quite confusing for many people, including me, due to all of those random changes happening unexpectedly. But, enough with the rambling!

    Let's see how you can join this beta and what it is all about. The first thing to do is visiting the YouTube Beta page on TestingCatalog.com. Next, go ahead and look for the 📲 Beta test on Google Play magical button and click on it.

    Telegram X, one of our favorite messaging apps on Android, after a month and a half of testing, finally got an update on the stable channel. There have been in total twenty-one beta/release candidate versions released to all testers, with numerous fixes and enhancements, including tons of improvements around devices running Android Pie, translations and more. Let's go through our, kind of quick, updates round-up:

    Translations

    Telegram X is now available in ten languages (English, French, German, Italian, Malay, Malayalam, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Spanish and Ukrainian) and whenever your local language gets added to the list, you will be asked to switch to it, without an app update required.

    Google Chrome got some very handy design improvements this year and now it is time for a new feature, which benefits only Indian users for the time being. What I mean by this is that the new 'Explore' tab is a content discovery page, where it suggests the user websites and right now they are all India-specific. Of course, this may be subject to change, knowing Google's track record. Some theories say that 'Explore' might become official with suggestions, based on the user's browser usage patterns and needs. Also, this may get removed too, because it is indeed totally experimental.

    Signal, the open source, simple and secure messaging application with more than five million installs on the Play Store, received a series of updates in the beta channel, with the latest one being version 4.29.0 dated from October 12.

    The improvements are focused around taking pictures with the included camera. It was quite limited before, with the camera preview window showing up only in the bottom half of the screen, so you were missing quite a lot of the scenery. The new camera UI works in full-screen, still has a shutter button and a button to toggle between the main camera and the selfie shooter. There are a couple of simple photo editing tools available, but they are very limited.

    Chrooma Keyboard, "the best Android app released in all of 2016" according to Android Authority, is inevitably the most unique keyboard app for Android. The selling point of it is, of course, the adaptable theme and to be precise, the way it changes its color in certain apps, to better streamline the used colors in the UI.

    What happened?

    A new update hit beta users in the Play Store, adding a number of new features, which are part of their new Chrooma Business Suite package, available for purchasing. It includes add-ons such as Translator, Event Creator, Encrypt message and Google Now integration, and each of them can be bought for roughly a couple of dollars, but of course, prices are different depending on the country you live in.

    Let’s see what are the newly added plugins for in detail, so you can decide if they are worth it, or not:
