It took a couple of hours, but the Android Beta page is finally live. There, you'll be able to sign up for the Android Beta Program and enroll any or all of your eligible devices.Read More
If you have long documents inside Google Docs, you've probably been annoyed many times by the lack of an easy way to skip through different sections or chapters. You could spend over a minute swiping through a long story for example to reach a chapter toward the end.
Google Docs' new outline feature solves this problem on both the web and Android. On the web, clicking Tools > Document outline triggers a pane to the left of the document that lists clickable headers for all the different sections. Even if headers aren't manually applied, Google will still recognize changes in formatting and detect the logical separations between sections.Read More
We interrupt your regularly scheduled Android N 24/7 coverage to bring you this important breaking news segment.
Do you work in a big office building of several floors with hundreds of others employees and dozens of different divisions interspersed without any logic? Do you find trouble navigating that office when you have a meeting or lose time looking for the coworkers you need to collaborate with? Then Sony has the solution to your woes.
From Xperia Labs comes Smart Office, an app that requires "Sony mobile's indoor positioning" installation. What that hardware is or how your boss can get their hands on it, I couldn't tell, but the app's developers say you can get in touch if you're interested in installing it in your facilities.Read More
Earlier today (before the Android N deluge), we reported on the Nexus 5X update, which included a few important bug fixes. Now there's a new build for the Nexus 6P that apparently offers the same improvements. It's build MHC19I, and it seems to have some noticeable performance improvements.Read More
Google is celebrating the launch of the Android N developer preview today with... a deal? Well, a deal for developers, specifically on the Pixel C. Google is shaving 25% off the MSRP of the device for developers who request a discount code through this URL.
However, it appears it's just for the 64GB variant - meaning you'll still pay $450. We're reaching out to Google to see if it applies to the 32GB version as well, but it doesn't look like it at this time.
Preview images? What preview images? Oh, those ones. Yeah, we've got those. Check out the direct links for each Android N preview image download below (all devices shown except the General Mobile 4G, which will get images at a later date).
Did you expect to wake up to a new version of Android this morning? Probably not. But that's exactly what you're getting, and Google's letting the information fly fast and hard (... and in some cases, slightly before we expected) about the latest iteration of their mobile OS, at this time only known as "N." Like previous... previews... N doesn't have a version number or name yet, but it's chock-full of new features for users and developers alike, and the list of those features will grow as we near the final release. Let's break down the key facts.
In between selling iPhone cases (yes, really) and paying for product placement on the latest season of House of Cards (yes, really), OnePlus seems to have achieved something rather cool on the software front. They've partnered with Canonical, the people who make the popular Linux desktop distribution Ubuntu, in order to bring the mobile version to the original OnePlus One. Neat! OnePlus made the announcement on Google Plus.Read More
Most of the monthly Nexus updates are security patches, but Google is pushing out an OTA to the Nexus 5X right now that's actually got some substance to it. While other phones are just getting the March security update, the Nexus 5X is receiving a raft of bug fixes and tweaks in the update too.Read More
