As we get closer and closer to the Annual Android Handset Giving Period commonly known by many as Christmas, another week of Android news grows to a close. This week has brought a number of new stories, including reports that YouTube are delaying their streaming music service, the news that Chrome apps could be coming to Android as early as January and more information about Google’s mysterious barges that first hit our headlines last month. Let’s take a look!
Do you feel “Scroogled” and want to show it with a range of trendy-as-ever Microsoft-branded clothing? Or are you more of a quiet type who simply wants all their subscriptions to be tied together in a single app that bears an identical name to the iOS service that does a similar job? This week’s for you so let’s dive in and take a look at what’s been going on in Mountain View!
Wearable technology is tipped to be the next big thing and so naturally Google, who never likes to lack in the innovation department, is seemingly getting ready to enter the incredibly young market head-first using Android.
Android’s version 4.4, KitKat, was just recently announced and the long list of under-the-hood internals are sure to please Android users everywhere. But amongst this long list of enhancements, certain features stand out to me for the reason that they are the exact type of improvements or additions that a wearable device needs, and would benefit greatly from. This is what leads me to believe that in the coming months we will see Google disrupting the wearable market like no other company can. But what will we see from them? I’ve done my best to decrypt the hints left in Android KitKat to find out!
Leaks, leaks and more leaks. That’s the word of the week in the Android world over the past seven days. This one-time run of week 42 of 2013 has hosted Nexus 5 leaks on the Google Play store, giving us a glimpse of the design and pricing of the device. We’ve also had a sneak peek at the future of SMS in Android post-KitKat and an unofficial glimpse at a redesigned Google Play Store for Android. Let’s jump in and take a look!
It’s time to bid farewell to jealousy of those iPhone 5S owners who can unlock their device with the mere print of their fingers with the announcement of the alleged announcement of HTC’s Fingerprint-Scanning HTC One Max. If that’s not quite your thing, HTC’s otherwise attempting to attract you with a new metallic variant of the existing HTC One. Let’s take a look!
If you’ve been having trouble with your Nexus 7’s multitouch display or have a hankering for comparison shopping while you’re wearing Google Glass, this week might have brought you some answers and solutions. Let’s jump in and take a look at the week’s best news in Android! (more…)
Google Glass and Moto X fans, this is your week once again. Stories this week include updates to everyone’s favourite Google-made wearable computer, new accessories for the Moto X flagship smartphone from Motorola and some Nexus 7 defects thrown into the mix. Let’s take a look!
Last week we had Nexus 7s and Chromecasts. This week, the fun rolls on with Kindle Fire rumours and Google Glass expansion. Let’s take a look at what’s been going on! (more…)
The signs have been here for a few years. Being a services company with reach spanning from your web browser to your mobile phone, Google has been pushing for a better integration of all of the digital aspects of your life. For a long time now, you could visit the Play Store from your computer and click one button to have an app installed on your device. Or if you used Google Talk on the web and on your phone, you might have noticed that it only received notifications on the device you most recently used to send a message.
But apart from these rare examples, it always felt like the digital pieces of our lives were synchronizing together, working the same way with the same set of data, but never in intelligent tandem. Synchronous but not unified. That’s what I had been waiting for, and this year’s I/O as well as this week’s Google event got me excited. The wheels are in motion and we’re finally moving toward a future where all the digital fragments in our possession become one entity.
Another week, another set of Android news. In the run up to Google I/O we’ve had a week fairly bare of news yet full of speculation. There’s been some new apparent developments in Google’s Wallet product, including the departure of Osama Bedier, the company’s Wallet Vice President, in addition to the delay of the retail Ouya, a number of app updates and more.
