YouTube Has A New Pseudo-Drawer For Subscriptions On Tablets

The YouTube app's hamburgerless layout has been with us for a while now, and while it's gotten a mixed bag of reactions, Google is still iterating on it slowly but surely. It seems like the latest development is a new layout on tablets for the subscription tab.

Previously, a strip of avatars lined the top of the content area, with blue dots to indicate whether the channel had a new video for you. In the new layout - which seems to be rolling out pretty quickly from the server-side judging from our inbox - subs have their own sort of pseudo-drawer on the left of the screen.

Nexus 4 Lives On Thanks To Official CyanogenMod 13 Nightly With Marshmallow

A few months ago, Nexus 4 owners felt a little bit abandoned when their darling device was left out of the Marshmallow party. While the Nexus 5, 6, 7 (2013), and 9 all got their new dessert flavor, the Nexus 4 was left with a used Lollipop that didn't taste just as sweet as it did when it was first released. But fret no more, you old-school Nexus warriors, CyanogenMod is here to save you from descent into irrelevancy thanks to the latest CM 13 nightly.

Released a few hours ago, this CM 13 nightly for the Nexus 4 (mako) weighs about 277MB and brings a build of Marshmallow to the device.

[Deal Alert] The 32GB Motorola Nexus 6 Is Just $250 On Amazon, $300 For 64GB Version

We've been seeing some fantastic prices on last year's Nexus phone leading up to and following the launch of the 2015 devices. This is almost the cheapest yet: $249.99 gets you the Nexus 6, which is still very much a powerful and desirable phone, from Amazon. This is a new device, with the stock 32GB of storage and either the blue or white color option, plus a standard warranty. It's a full $400 off of the retail price at which the Nexus 6 launched a little over a year ago.

If you need a little more storage, the 64GB model is also available at $299.99, though at the moment it's only being sold in the white version.

The Gold Nexus 6P, Exclusive To Japan At Launch, Is Coming To Indian Retailer Flipkart On December 21st

When the details of the Nexus 6P started to leak, several colors were spotted: aluminum, white, black, and gold. As it turns out, the gold-colored version was exclusive to the Japanese market. We never found out why the gold phone isn't available elsewhere - a gold option has been popular for flagship phones across most major manufacturers for several years now. Whatever the reason, customers in India will soon have a crack at the gold Nexus 6P, courtesy of online retailer Flipkart.

Manufacturer Huawei posted a teaser for the gold-colored 6P on its Facebook page, which indicates that it will be exclusive to Flipkart in the region.

Sundar Pichai Says Google Might Conduct An Online Poll To Name Android Version N

Sundar Pichai, lately the CEO of Google and a huge figure in the world of Android, is apparently considering the advice of his dear mother when it comes time to name the next release of Android. That's according to a question and answer session Pichai gave at Delhi University, where topics such as football (soccer) and cricket were also broached. But he won't be considering his mother's input alone.

If Pichai is a notable figure for Android enthusiasts, he's a positive celebrity for tech fans in his home country. During the packed session at the University's Sri Ram College of Commerce, he endeavored to answer every question he could, both from live attendees and social media.

[Update: All Current Fi Customers Eligible] Device Protection Is Now Available With Phones Ordered From Project Fi

It seemed a little odd that Google's first-party extended warranty program, Nexus Protect, didn't work with Google's own MVNO effort, Project Fi, when it was announced. New buyers of the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P could apply the Nexus Protect warranty to their phones if they bought them from the Google Store, but not through the Project Fi site. Now it looks like that lack of synergy has been rectified: Nexus Protect, or at least something very much like it, is available with new phone purchases from Fi.

Google Docs, Sheets, And Slides Get Access to File Templates On Mobile [APK Download]

In an APK Teardown many moons ago, Cody noticed a few common strings in the mobile apps of Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides, that hinted at the release of templates. It took a few months, but the feature has finally gone live on all three Drive apps.

Tap that and you'll be able to pick any of the readily available preformatted styles that you've had access to on the web version of Docs, Sheets, and Slides.
