Freeform multi-window mode won't be enabled on the Pixel C or any of the Nexus devices in Android N

Android N is introducing multi-window support in a limited way. A split-screen option sits apps side-by-side, so you can see more than one at once. But if you want to resize and drag windows like you would on a PC, it can be done, but it takes a bit more work.

We didn't expect to see freeform multi-window support in the upcoming version of Android, but it would be nice to see the feature appear as an optional flag. That won't happen either.

Google Maps v9.31 Beta Part 2: multiple waypoints, notifications about indoor maps and transit disruptions, and more [APK Teardown]

The update to Google Maps v9.31 brought a couple of fixes for users on Android N developer previews, not to mention some other small changes for everybody. But the most interesting things about this version are still buried below the surface. Yesterday, I covered support for offline maps to be installed on an SD card, and now it's time to dig into the rest of the teardown. If SD card support weren't enough, there are a couple of other features here that have been hotly requested for some time, so it's pretty clearly the Maps team is working hard to fill out the feature set for users.

[The Android Police Files #12] i am alone now

 

Much has changed since the last installment of the Android Police Files. The 5X and 6P are the latest Nexus devices. We know a great deal about Android N. Google's founders formed a new company and made Google a subsidiary.

But one thing hasn't changed — we still get some hilarious emails. Here's your latest glimpse at some of the more absurd corners of the Android Police inbox.

Never Alone comes to Android phones and tablets a year after Android TV release

I'm a big fan of atmospheric games that immerse you in their gameplay and story - Machinarium, The Wolf Among Us, and Lifeline are some of my favorites on Android. After being available on Android TV for almost a year, Never Alone, from developer Upper Line Games (published by E-Line Media) is now available on Android phones and tablets, and it looks like it's going to hit it out of the park.

Never Alone is based on Native Alaskan culture and experiences, with the Cook Inlet Tribal Council, a non-profit organization that works with indigenous people, assisting with development on the game.

Rodeo Stampede: Sky Zoo Safari, the latest casual game from the makers of Crossy Road, mixes endless runners with park managers

How do zoos procure the exotic animals that they care for and exhibit? In the real world it's a complex process of identifying wild animals that can be captured without danger to themselves or the environment, often requiring cooperation with conservationists, universities, and private dealers. In Rodeo Stampede, you rope them like a three-day-old calf, jump on their backs, and try not to run into a wall.The latest game from Crossy Road developer publisher Yodo1 and developer Featherweight Games isn't claiming to be anything close to authentic, but it's a lot of fun.

OnePlus says Dash Charge binary for ROM builders will be released by end of July

OnePlus managed to integrate a fast charging solution into the OnePlus 3, but it's a non-standard one called Dash Charge. It's a licensed version of Oppo's VOOC, so it requires special code on the device and hardware in the adapter. Some OP fans were bummed that custom ROMs would not be able to support Dash Charge, but that will change next month when OP releases the code.

Android Pay v1.4 prepares to launch streamlined loyalty signups, Transport for London integration, and discovery for apps and local retailers that accept it [APK Teardown]

If the presentations at Google I/O last month were any indication, Android Pay is growing quite quickly. Several new features were announced, but most were still only demos, not available to the public. A fresh update to the Android Pay app came out yesterday and a teardown reveals a few of those key features are either ready to launch or getting closer. There's also work being done on a map that will show merchants in close proximity that accept Android Pay, and a shortcut already showing up that will direct users to apps with Android Pay integration.

Twitter and Vine video limits expand to 140 seconds

Twitter isn't just a place for spitting out sharp criticism and inane musings. Okay it is, but those expressions aren't limited to text. The social network allows for up to 30 seconds of video.

That limit is changing. Twitter is bumping up the max length of a video up from half a minute to 140 seconds.
