Opera adds WebRTC, updated design to Android browser

Opera has updated the Android variant of its web browser to version 20, and has included support for WebRTC, a technology that can support browser-based video conferencing. The update also adds a new customizable interface, a flat-design Speed Dial, upgrades to the search and address bar, an update of the Chromium core to version 33, and a number of other minor updates. The updated Opera for Android is available to download now from Google Play, for devices running Android 4.0 or higher.

Motorola adds command to read notifications to Touchless Control app

Motorola has updated the Touchless Control function of the Moto X and current Droid range of devices, allowing it to read notifications aloud. Phone Arena reports that the function has migrated from Motorola Assist, and can be triggered by the verbal command "Read notifications" or "What's up?" The app also includes an update to its end-of-speech detection system, which in theory will allow for faster responses and improved accuracy.
