Flipboard has announced a major update with their v4.0 update. The new update is focused on what Flipboard calls Smart Magazines.
After a few leaks, Google and LG’s smartwatch collaboration was finally announced. Together they have revealed the first two watches that will be running Android Wear 2.0, the Watch Style and Watch Sport.
To give you a better overview about the new update, Google released this video.
With launch of Android Wear 2.0 imminent (on February 9th), it’s about time we see leaks about what the first smartwatches running the new update will look that.
As 2016 comes to a close, it’s that time of year for the annual “best of …” or “favourite things of 2016.”
This post will be focusing on the apps that I used the most this year, so much that I consider them my favourite apps of 2016. Some of these apps might not have come out in 2015 but some have been significantly since last year’s post: Favourite Apps of 2015.
Some of these apps are just available on only one platform (just Android or just iOS) but some of them are multiplatform in which they are on both Android and iOS and have a web app as well.
The links to download these apps will be in the form of “Get on Google Play” or “Get it on the App Store” picture after each app description.
Google has made quite a few announcements, including two Pixel phones, more details about Google Home, and much more.
In case you missed the livestream or you want to rewatch it, here you go.
When I reviewed the Nexus 6P last year, I said it was one of the best ways to experience pure Android. Now, about one year later, I still hold that claim.
If you were to go out and buy the Nexus 6P off-contract, you’re still getting a beautiful display that looks great, an awesome camera and pure Android (and you’ll be getting Android 7.0 before any other Android device).
Google has announced that the final version of Android 7.0 Nougat is rolling out to Nexus devices and tablets, today. It is coming to the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, the General Mobile 4G (Android One) and the Pixel C.
There’s been devices in the past that would try and turn your Android smartphone into a laptop (Motorola Atrix anyone?) but that was back when Android smartphones were severely underpowered. But smartphones have come along way since then and they’re more powerful than ever.
To follow up to the OnePlus 2’s VR launch, OnePlus announced the OnePlus 3 in a virtual space called The Loop but if you didn’t catch the event, all of the details of the new phone are now available.
Google made quite a few announcements during their I/O 2016 keynote. From a new way to talk to Google to an Amazon Echo competitor called Google Home and of course a looking at upcoming versions of Android and Android Wear.
For those who might have missed the keynote:
Google also had the keynote available in 360 video:
