Google Now On Tap In Android M Preview Is Back To Saying 'Coming Soon'

If you've been following the Google Now On Tap saga in recent days, you'll be happy to know we've come full circle. A new version of the Google app last week enabled On Tap for the third dev preview, but it stopped working soon after. Now it's back to displaying a cheerful "coming soon" message. Why do you taunt us, Google?

Google just sent out the invitation below for an event in San Francisco on September 29th. This will almost definitely be the venue for the unveiling of the next Nexus phones, rumored to be manufactured by Huawei and LG.

Google OnHub Is Back In Stock On Amazon And $5 Cheaper ($195.72)

The Google OnHub is a really neat router that might not be worth $200 right now, but it's got tons of potential. Of course, you haven't even been able to consider buying the OnHub since it came out—it sold out immediately. Now it's back on Amazon, and it's a few bucks cheaper.

Google Street View Takes A Camera On A Journey Through The Philippines

Here in the States, we largely take Street View for granted. Sure, Google hasn't sent cameras down our large web of rural roads, but it has covered the bulk of our cities and large towns.

These days, the search giant is making its way to other parts of the globe. Not too long ago it took pictures you can only find deep in the Amazon or in a kayak around Malaysia. Now it's showing off the footage it got from carrying a camera through the many streets and diverse environments of the Philippines.

This means you can pick up Google's little orange avatar guy and drop him onto the many roads of Manila, the country's capital.

A Deep Dive Into Google Photos: Not Your Grandma's Photo Album

At Google IO this past June we saw the launch of many new products from Google, including Android M, Android Pay, and Project Brillo. The tech giant also launched Google Photos as its own service, which was previously tied down to Google+. Today we're going to dive into every corner of Google Photos and my experiences with it over the last few months.

Intro & tests

Over the last eight years I have used iPhoto, Aperture, Lightroom, and Photos on Mac to organize my photos. While each worked for a period of time, I never truly felt like my photos were properly organized.

Latest Google App Offering Up New Notifications For Some Users

In case you aren't getting enough Google Now inside the normal interface, it looks like the Google app is bumping out into some users' notification trays with new, richer, higher priority notifications.

While it's hard to say when the rollout began, some users on version 5.2.33.19 of the Google app (myself included) have begun noticing new notification settings in the Google app, toggling notifications for "substantial changes in weather condition," sports, places, and "stories and videos." Other users' settings lists still stop at "priority notifications."

So far we've only seen weather notifications - which offer temperature changes or other condition changes expected for the next day - and sports notifications in person.

Googler Says Dark System Theme Won't Be Included In Marshmallow, But Might Be Considered For Future Releases

Do you remember how happy everyone was when the first Android M developer preview had a dark system UI mode? Get ready for the exact opposite of that feeling. A reply to the issue tracker thread indicates that Google won't be making the dark theme available in Android 6.0. It might still happen in the future, though.

Google Is Testing Proper Post Sharing To Apps In Google+ For Android, Which Rather Annoyingly Wasn't A Thing Already

Google+ is a pretty great social media platform - it allows content of all lengths, many types, and it presents in a readable, ad-free way. But not everybody uses Google+, and that's understandable, we've all got plenty of social media in our lives at this point, and Google+ is just another platform to keep track of. But sometimes you want to share a great Google+ post, and if you were to do that on your Android device, that meant just copying a link to the post to your device's clipboard. Not ideal, necessarily, given that Android has literally been built upon sharing content between various apps seamlessly and with as few taps as possible.
