Google's Android For Work App Hits The Play Store

 

In February, Google proclaimed "Android is ready for work," marking an official opening to the Android for Work effort first introduced at Google I/O 2014. Today, Google's official Android for Work app has hit the Play Store, ready to help users running Android 4.0-4.4W (since setup is built into Lollipop) and working with Android for Work partner solutions set up their device for work use.

For those out of the loop, Android for Work is Google's take on dual-persona device management, allowing users to have two copies of the same app - one for personal use and one for business.

Do you get a lot of work done using Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides from your smartphone? Probably not, but it's pretty easy to keep tabs on other people being productive using those three apps. That's the idea behind one of the latest changes to hit Google's office suite.

What's New?

In the latest version of Docs, Sheets, and Slides, you now have the option to approve or reject changes that other people make to your documents.

[Update: APK Download] Chrome v42 With Site Notifications And Home Screen Links Set To Roll Out On Android Over The Coming Days

Google has announced a new version of Chrome for Android is hitting the stable release channel, and this one is a rather big deal for a few reasons. There are some interesting features, but it's also the last release for Ice Cream Sandwich. At least there's some good stuff.

[Really?] Huawei Blatantly Photoshops Screen Bezels Out Of P8 And P8max Marketing Renders

False advertising is a pretty slimy thing, and with rendered product images being commonplace on the web now, the temptation to virtually nip and tuck your new gadget to beauty is stronger than ever. Case in point? Huawei's new P8 and P8max micro-sites, which pretty brazenly portray the new flagship devices with nothing but a metallic glint of a display bezel. Pretty impressive and, more importantly, good-looking. Too bad it's not real. The real Ascend P8max, for the record, looks like this. Now, compare that to the image at the top of this article. See a problem?

As is clearly visible on the left and right-hand sides of the live photo from Androidworld.it, the P8max has a very real vertical bezel.

AT&T Samsung Galaxy S5 Active And Galaxy Alpha Get Lollipop OTA Updates Starting Today

The nice thing about Samsung's product line is that it's so wide, they're bound to have at least one phone you like. Take AT&T's Samsung offerings for example: in addition to the usual Galaxy flagships, they have smaller versions, bigger versions, cheaper versions, and even Galaxy phones with gigantic camera zooms strapped to the back. Today two of those variants get upgraded to Lollipop: the tough-as-nails Galaxy S5 Active and the svelte Galaxy Alpha.

The incoming build for the S5 Active is LRX21T.G870AUCU1BOC5, and while it's technically an "over the air" update, AT&T probably won't send the 1.4GB update to your phone unless that air includes a Wi-Fi connection.

[Deal Alert] Refurbished Chromecast Just $20 On Groupon With Free Shipping

The Chromecast is cheap. But even when something only costs $35, it's still nice to be able to cut that price in half. Okay, Groupon's offer isn't actually 50% off, but it's close. For the next five days (or until supplies run out), you can get a Chromecast for just $20.

These are refurbished units, but in the case of Google's streaming stick, that really doesn't matter. Even if it's scratched, it's going in the back of a TV where you will never see it again. Though I'm kind of curious how someone even goes about scratching a Chromecast in the first place.

[Update: Potential Nexus 6 Case Spotted] Exclusive: Google Exploring 'Google Workshop' To Take Customized Smartphone Cases To A New Level

Google hasn't exactly had a spotless track record when it comes to official Nexus accessories. Accessories have been teased or shown off only to arrive months later or not at all (remember that Nexus 10 dock?).

Recently, though, Google has done a much better job - there are a bevy of case options available for both the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013) in a variety of colors, catering to almost all tastes (though at times the quality may not be ideal).
