If you’re unfamiliar with Link Bubble, it’s a unique browser released early this year from the developer of the popular Android launcher, Action Launcher Pro. The app allows users to click links in apps like Google+, Twitter, and more that opens links in a “bubble” while loading that allows users to save time. If you want to learn more about the app, check out my full review. Since it launched, it’s been popular but hasn’t seen any big updates, until today. Link Bubble version 1.2 brings some incredible new features and tweaks to make the app better.
The first major feature added is “OK Google” support. This allows you to use the voice hotword to open up a Google Search. This is something that you might now have expected to work well with a browser, but as you can see in the video below, it works really well. This feature does require the pro license which for a limited time is 50% off.
The second new feature is a reading mode. Similar to what is seen in Safari on iOS, you can activate this mode to clean up the view of a page that you might be reading to remove ads and clutter for a better reading experience. This feature also requires a pro license.
Other new features include controls to configure which apps Link Bubble will intercept links from. Along with that the free version of the app now allows for links in any app to be opened without requiring a pro subscription. Some improvements include stability fixes and opening a link only once if it is clicked twice. Also the status bar and navigation bar are now blacked out when inside an app that uses translucent navigation and status bars.
If you haven’t tried Link Bubble yet, this is definitely the time to do so. Make sure to get it from the Play Store at the link below.
