Google released a second Android N developer preview two weeks ago for the Nexus 5X, 6P, 6, 9, 9 LTE, and Pixel C. That's quite the list, but there was one circular Nexus device that didn't make it.

Evleaks Says HTC Is Building Two Nexuses - M1 And S1 - And We Think They're Codenamed Marlin And Sailfish

Evan Blass, aka @evleaks, has just revealed that HTC is working on two Android N-running devices, model numbers S1 and M1, in cooperation with Google. The strong implication there? These are Nexus devices, probably both handsets.

We can corroborate that this story is likely accurate, and that HTC's internal model numbers are probably based upon the codenames Google currently plans to use for the devices: Marlin and Sailfish. Google has a long history of naming Nexus devices after aquatic life, the current 5X and 6P are Bullhead and Angler, respectively. The Nexus 6 was Shamu. The Nexus 5 was Hammerhead, and so on.

Twitter Supports Direct Share On Marshmallow: Send DMs To Your Recent Contacts With One Tap

Twitter has a bit of a love/hate relationship with mobile platforms and Android in particular. On the one hand, it's so aggressively possessive and wants an exclusive relationship devoid of any third-parties, on the other it updates its apps at a nice pace and adds new features to them. Oh well, it did let Android users hang behind iOS more than once, but we're not holding grudges.

After adding a share button to send tweets as Direct Messages, Twitter is working on another feature to make DMs easier to use in its app: Direct Share support on Marshmallow. So just like you can immediately send a photo to a specific WhatsApp contact or a link to one Pushbullet device, you can now share those or any random data from other apps directly to a Twitter DM conversation.

Google Releases An Android TV Remote App For iOS

Android TV may not have caught like wildfire, but it's still an affordable and interesting set-top box offering. If you've already bought a Nexus Player or SHIELD TV unit for example and you've been met by glares from a couple of your family members who own iPhones and iPads and can't control the darn thing with their devices, then you're in for a small surprise today.

Almost two years after it first unveiled Android TV, Google is now releasing the corresponding remote control application to the iTunes App Store. The app looks exactly like the Android app we all know and works in the same way.

With last month's release of the Android N Preview, the Tools team launched a preview release of Android Studio 2.1.

As of today, Android Studio 2.1 has been promoted to Stable and is available to all developers.
