OnePlus Sets Dates For The One's Lollipop Update: OxygenOS On March 27th, CyanogenMod On March 30th

Owners of the OnePlus One tend to be among the most dedicated (read: rabid) Android fans out there - they have to be, since it still takes no small amount of legwork to actually buy the phone. That being the case, those owners have waited a long time for the final, official update to Android 5.0. They won't have to wait much longer: an official OnePlus representative told members of the company forum that the updates will begin on March 27th, just a little over a week from now.

Google I/O 2015 Registration Is Open Now

Right on time, Google has opened up registration for Google I/O 2015. For the chance at a ticket, head over to the registration page below and complete the process. To prevent registration stress, Google is leaving the form open until March 19th at 5:00pm PDT. Presumably, Google will also have a few registration codes hidden across its various web properties just like last year.

Of course if you can't make it to I/O 15 in person, just drop by AP for all the coverage you need or join an I/O extended event.

HTC Publishes BoomSound Connect, HTC Connect, And HTC Tasks In The Play Store Ahead Of One M9 Launch

HTC has published a trio of their own apps in the Play Store, each relating to device-specific functions that we will see in the HTC One M9 and probably all devices running Sense 7.0. BoomSound Connect claims to be an app dedicated to managing streams to AllPlay speakers, while the similarly-named Connect serves the same purposes, but for Bluetooth, DLNA, and Miracast streaming of audio and video. HTC Tasks is, well, HTC's tasks app.

Google Now Lets You Send Hangouts Messages Using Voice Commands

OK, Google, let's have a talk. No, not the two of us. I mean, let me talk to someone else, using you. I heard you're willing to let me send Hangouts messages without opening the app now.

OK, Google, let me start over. No, no, no, that wasn't a command. Ugh, OK.

Google, send a hangouts message.

Samsung Quietly Announces The Mid-Range Galaxy Tab A With Metal Design And A 4:3 Screen

The Galaxy Tab A has been whispered about for the last several weeks, and now it's official... at least in Russia. Samsung's newest tablets are slotting into the space previously occupied by the Galaxy Tab 4 line, so they're mid-range devices. However, it's important to note these tablets have 4:3 screens like the Nexus 9 or the iPad. That makes them instantly more interesting in my opinion.

Google is making two changes to the Play Store today, although one of these changes technically happened a few weeks ago and you didn't notice. Apps will soon carry content ratings so parents can make more informed decisions about what their kids have access to. Google also announced a manual review process for apps. Don't panic! Google has been doing this for weeks and no one has complained.

Productivity App Swipes Comes To Android With Material Design And Evernote Integration

We have spotted a real unicorn: an established iOS app has come to Android with a smoothly functioning app that boasts Material Design from the get-go. It's neither a port of their Apple predecessor nor a half-baked effort just to claim cross-platform compatibility. If you're into a relatively minimal interface and an Inbox Zero type of approach to task management, Swipes is worth a look.

The workflow, if you want it to, can be a lot like Google's Inbox is for Gmail. Speaking of, the developers promise integration with Gmail soon for Android users. Also, Google Calendar is on the way, but with less clear of an arrival date.
