Greetings testers! 
For a better reading experience, open this issue in your browser 🌎
As you probably noticed, Google is slowly preparing to adopt its own Material You design concept across a huge list of its Android apps. These changes are rolling out gradually so it will likely take some time for everyone to get updated. So far I only got my Gmail being redesigned, what about you?
Apart from this, YouTube rolled out a bunch of features to all users, including comment translations and descriptions that are visible in the landscape mode. And then, there is a Google Assistant update that makes its driving mode more accessible to everyone. 
The top 3 charts of our newsletter are fully occupied by Google apps and there lot more updates that are coming soon.
What’s new?
  • 📲 Google Assistant got a way to enter driving mode from anywhere and a new UI
  • 📲 Google keeps rolling out its Material You update to more Gmail users
  • 📲 YouTube now allows you to translate comments on Android

TestingCatalog project
I am slowly exploring crypto projects for publishers. Already testing A-Ads on some pages. These are anonymous ads where publishers can earn Bitcoins. Another cool project is called Presearch and it even has its own coin called $PRE. You can earn tokens by searching and publishers can stale their coins to place ads on certain queries.
Also, before I started accepting them, I didn’t know that receiving news tips from the community could be that exciting. And it motivates a lot also! Thanks to everyone who is sharing new features with TestingCatalog, you are the best! ❤️
Happy Testing!
