Project Tango Tablet is on Google Play Store, not yet for sale

Ever wanted a super powerful tablet with powerful cameras and an understanding of the world as we see it and not as flat 2D images? If so, then Google's Project Tango might just be for you and, coincidentally, the tablet has just shown up on Google Play Store. That said, the device isn't actually available for purchase just yet, and neither is Google letting on how much it will cost. But given the features and purpose of the tablet, we expect it to cost quite a lot.

Androidified ads herald the platform and arrival of Lollipop

As Google finally starts officially rolling out Android 5.0 Lollipop to the Nexus devices and other selected smartphones and tablets from various OEMs, four new videos appeared on their YouTube channel.

Google updates Keep app

One of the many apps getting an update from Google is Google Keep. As expected, it will get some Material Design lovin’ from the Internet giant as the Android 5.0 Lollipop is slowly rolling out.

Google Search app just got smarter

The Google app has just received a special update in time for the arrival of the Android Lollipop. One of the most notable changes in design is the search results page. It’s more Material Design-ish now with a simpler layout, fluid animations, and bolder colors. This will be more obvious on Android Lollipop-powered smartphones and tablets.

Google rolls out new Messenger app

After the main Google app and Google Keyboard are updated, here’s a new Messenger app from Google. This is a new app that is meant for SMS messaging so you can stay in touch with family and friends all the time. This also allows MMS messaging to any phone, as well as, group texts. If you still want to share more media, you can do so and send photos, audio messages, and videos.

YouTube now brings easier music search, subscription service

If you're one of those who leaves a YouTube playlist streaming on your device or desktop while working or studying or reading, then the newest update from the video network might make you dance like Taylor Swift in Shake It Off (Hi Spotify). The app will now make it easier for you to look for your favorite songs (and even albums) from your favorite artists, and will now even offer a streaming subscription service. Just think of it as Google Play Music but with videos.

Lollipop OTA, Images for Nexus devices now rolling out

Nexus owners, if you've been a bit jealous of the Moto G and, now, the Moto X getting their Lollipop on, you no longer need to feel unloved. Google has finally started the rollout of Android 5.0 to its blessed line of smartphones and tablets, so all you'll have to do is to wait for it to land. But, if you're really excited to get the dessert now and don't mind starting from scratch, there is always the Factory Image path available for you to take.
