Google not locking down Android, coming to TVs and cars in the near future

Google will soon take over the world. The search giant is bent on bringing its Android platform into other devices aside from smartphones, tablets, and smartwatches. Soon, we’ll see Android-running cars, TVs, appliances, and more. When it comes to cars, there’s already the Android Auto being employed in the latest Honda vehicles. Android Wear can now be found on watches while the OS version for Android TVs is still being developed.

MyGlass 3.3.0 update hides wallpapers, keyboard input inside

As promised, Google has rolled out an update to Google Glass, or to be specific to its MyGlass companion app, that enables users to see regular notifications from their phone right in Google Glass. But as seem to be the practice with Google's updates, version 3.3.0 of the MyGlass app also includes features that are not actually available yet but do prefigure that things that could be coming next once Google flips the switch, most likely on Glass' firmware itself.

Nexus 6 to arrive on T-Mobile this November

Fresh from the announcement from Google of the new Nexus devices and Android 5.0 or Lollipop, T-Mobile announced today that the Nexus 6 smartphone will be coming to the network by November. Already, people are buzzing about the new device, as it is probably the first Google phone that can be called a phablet and it is also the first Nexus device to be produced by Motorola. It will also be running on the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop (darn, we were hoping for Lemon Meringue Pie) with its Material Design look.

Androidify update: animated GIFs, more sharing options

If you've ever felt like the Android mascot should have a version more like you, then you probably have been enjoying the app Androidify, where you can make caricatures of the green robot to look more like you or any other character. The newest update from Google makes the app even more fun by letting you add even more animation, turning the images into GIFs, and even giving a chance for your creations to be featured in a TV commercial or YouTube ad.

Android Lollipop brings new kill switch feature to smartphones

Much has been said about kill switch especially after the California kill bill switch passed the State Senate last May. Apple went ahead of Google last year by introducing Activation Lock as opt-in but the feature was made made opt-out for the new iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 phones. We learned back in June that Android would be getting its own kill switch feature soon and it has arrived together with the Android Lollipop.

Android Lollipop statue unveiled, sweet ads released on YouTube

Android 5.0 is finally here and it’s sweeter than ever. We were expecting Lemon Key Pie, Lady Finger, or Licorice but never really thought it would be very simple: Lollipop. Actually, the first time we heard about the Android 5.0 being the Lollipop was September last year when a concept video for the next Android OS was released.

Android 5.0 Lollipop: what kinds of sweetness to expect

Google today dropped a load of goodies, from the expected Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 devices, to the surprise Nexus Player Android TV contraption. Tying all of these together, however, is one that has been, sometimes rather comically, speculated on since June. Android 5.0 is in town, and its name is Lollipop. But before you go making fun of this seemingly unassuming name, first try to hear out the sweet things that the latest Android version will bring. At least for those devices that are fated to receive it.

Nexus Player is your Android TV in a not so boxy circle

What is it with Google and round Android-powered media players? Calling into mind the ill-fated Nexus Q (odd) ball, Google today has dropped a surprise for those who were just expecting the Nexus 6 smartphone, Nexus 9 tablet, and Android 5.0, christened Lollipop. Hopefully, however, the unexpected Nexus Player is here to stay especially since it is based on a more established yet still new Android TV platform, though the question remains whether how much need there is for a dedicated Android box for the living room.
