Instead, the UI loads, you go to tap what you want, and suddenly the direct share contacts appear and all the app share links get pushed down out of view. See the animations below for the Android 6.0 and 6.0.1 behaviors side by side - the broken version is on the left.

Pixel C Team Holds Reddit AMA, Discusses Name, Android N, Multiwindow Support, "OK Google" Hotword Update, And More

Like the original Chromebook Pixel, the Pixel C (which became available on the Google Store for a starting price of $499.99 yesterday) leaves many people scratching their heads.

[Deal Alert] Declare A Truce In The War For The USB Port With This Tronsmart Quick Charge 2.0 4-Port Car Charger For Just $10 After Coupon

This month millions of people will be travelling to see friends and family for various holidays. And that's great.
