Thought I'd let everyone know about showing cool I saw on the Phandroid site. Some time ago google released an update to the Google Now app that allows the "Okay Google" hotword to activate the Google Now app from any other app including the lockscreen.
Well originally you had to wait for an update to the app which is being rolled out by account not area.
Call it a little summer cleaning or what have you, but it seems Google is tidying up their device listings, specifically the Google Play editions of some popular Androids. The LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play edition, Sony Z Ultra Google Play edition, and HTC One (2013) Google Play edition have been officially removed — […]
Google finally opened the Chromecast up to developers in a meaningful way, releasing the Google Cast SDK and integrating the relevant Android API into Google Play Services, the ever-growing backbone of Google's Android-based offerings. The update has already begun its rollout.
Without missing a beat, the new Google Play service has launched on Google TV. It was previously mentioned that roll out would occur over the coming weeks but my Google TV received the update immediately after powering it on this afternoon. Google TV came first for once! To me that sort of makes sense given the entertainment centric connotation of Google Play.
Google just pushed out Calendar as its own app download in Google Play. I'm excited to see this since there were a couple things Sony did to the Calendar I wasn't a huge fan of (colors didn't match what I saw in my browser, etc.) It's also cool to see this app getting direct updates from Google.
