Google Glass Will Soon Get Notification Sync To Bring All Your Android Notifications Straight To Your Eye

Google Glass is inviting users to "stay connected to your favorite phone apps with notification sync on Glass." The new feature, as you might have guessed by now, grants Google's MyGlass app notification access, relaying all your Android notifications up to your eyeball for quick and easy viewing/interaction. Previously, only apps compatible with Glass (like Gmail and Hangouts) could send up notifications.

The Glass team says the new feature (which the team admits you "may have already seen" on Android Wear) will come in an update to the MyGlass app that will be available tomorrow (an already jam-packed day from the looks of it), and posted a quick tutorial video to show what the setup process is like.

Here's A Look At The Nexus 6, Courtesy Of @evleaks

Evan Blass may be retired from leaking, but don't count him completely out yet – he just dropped the first official render we've seen of the Nexus 6.

While there are a few differences here and there, this looks quite a bit like our render from late last month, especially on the hardware side of things.

[Deal Alert] Refurbished 2013 32GB Nexus 7 LTE Up For Only $199.99 On Groupon

It won't be long now until the 2013 Nexus 7 is no longer Google's newest tablet. Depending on who you are, that makes now the best or worst time to buy one. If you don't care about having the latest stuff and would rather save some bucks, then this is a good time to do precisely that. Groupon has a refurbished version of the 32GB Nexus 7 with LTE (otherwise known as the expensive one) marked down to just $199.99.

Google Advertises Its 'OK Google' Voice Search With Clever Physical Ads At Iconic New York City Locations

Pay $29 for a ticket to the top of 30 Rockefeller Center in Manhattan, and you can expect to see a few things: excellent views of downtown and Central Park, a few tidbits of NBC broadcasting history, some kid trying to surreptitiously drop pennies off the roof. But one thing you might not expect to see is a contextual ad for Google's latest search campaign unobtrusively hanging out on one of the coin-op binoculars.

Google Play Services Updated To 6.1.71 With New Google Settings Icon, UI Tweaks [APK Download]

Just over a week after its last update, it seems Google Play Services is receiving another bump - this time up to 6.1.71.

Of course, Google hasn't posted an official change log for the update quite yet, but we've already got the APK and can point out a few differences. The most obvious one is of course the new launcher icon for Google Settings, which follows Google's yet unspoken launcher icon design guidelines

New Hangouts App For Chrome Goes Live With Chatheads-Style Interface For Desktop

Recently, we took a look at Ultra Violet, a new Hangouts app for Chrome that - at the time - was still in testing. It promised floating chats similar to Facebook's Chatheads feature, but for your desktop. Today, that app is finally a reality and available for download.

The premise is simple - as the video below demonstrates, a Hangouts bubble floats on the side of your desktop, opened from Google's Chrome app launcher, and subsequent conversations float above that.

Galaxy Nexus Gets A New Lease On Life Thanks To Updated GPU Drivers

Google announced last year that the venerable Galaxy Nexus would not be getting any of that sweet, sweet KitKat action. Well, not officially anyway. Owners were not pleased, but they couldn't properly flood the internet with complaints because their phones were already dead. There have been a few KitKat ROMs that work well enough, but now some developers have created a kernel and GPU driver combo that could keep this device chugging along through the L release.

[APK Teardown] Chromecast v1.8 Includes Support For Guest Mode, But It Might Not Be Ready For Action

Back at Google I/O 2014, we learned about a pretty neat feature called Backdrop that gives your Chromecast a little more pizazz with localized weather, news, and photos. It turned out to be a bit of a tease, because Google waited until earlier today to actually enable it through an update to the Chromecast app for our phones. During the same presentation, another feature called "Guest Mode" was announced promising to allow visitors to cast from their devices to a Chromecast in the same room without being on the same Wi-Fi network.

Google Updates Play Games SDK With Real Time Multiplayer For Cross-Platform C++ SDK, Dev Console Improvements, And More

Excitement over products like the Ouya, nVidia's Shield line, and even numerous gamepads proves that gaming on Android has entered the mainstream. Developers have been jumping at the opportunity to build games that work across many of the different operating systems; and thanks to the Cross-Platform SDK, they're able to integrate most of the Play Games services into their products on Windows, Mac, and Linux. Until now, this SDK has lagged behind the SDKs for Android and iOS on one specific feature: real-time multiplayer support.
