On the Eve of Google I/O, Netflix rolled out a new redesign for their app. It looks a bit more flat now and is mostly black with the “Netflix” logo being red. I have to say, I’m really liking the redesign, but now it’s time to redesign it for Android L, am I right?

This week, Google rolled out a new version of their Search app as well. This one is v3.5.14 and brings the “OK Google” hotword every where in the app. It also now features audio playback history. So if you use Google Search to play music often, it’ll grab it from your history now.

Microsoft OneDrive Gets Search

Yes, we are for real. Microsoft’s own cloud storage app did not have search. But it does now. It also has pull to refresh and a new nav drawer in this week’s release. This comes just a few days after the company upped their cloud storage to 15GB for free.
