Android O – New Features revealed at Google I/O 2017

Android O – New Features revealed at Google I/O 2017

Google I/O 2017 comes to a close and as expected we got to know more about the upcoming Android O, though we still don’t know exactly what Google going to name its new Android operating system. At Google I/O, Android’s Vice President of Engineering Dave Burke took the stage to talk about some of the upcoming release’s biggest features. They’re user facing stuff falls under something they’re calling Fluid Experiences. Picture-in-Picture Because traditional multi-window techniques don’t translate to well to mobile devices (they’re clunky, hard to navigate, and not quick enough to enable on-the-go), Google is introducing Picture-in-Picture. Just like on your TV, videos on YouTube or even specific apps like Maps navigation or Google Duo will automatically be shrunken down into a tiny window when you press the home button. This allows you to still see what’s going on, while getting stuff done in other apps. Notification Dots Notifications on Android are about to get even better thanks to a feature Google is calling Notification Dots. They essentially work much the same way as Badge Icons on iOS (only they’re not numbered) and place a little dot on an app icon to let you know when you have a notification. Long pressing the app icon will show you the most recent notification and you can swipe it away in the notification tray to remove it. Autofill with Google Autofill now extends into apps themselves, with Google being able to populate text fields — be it passwords, addresses, or anything else — away from the Chrome web browser. For instance, if Google knows your login info on Twitter.com, it can also autofill this info in the Twitter app. It’s opt-in, so you its up to you to enable it. Smart Text Selection Copy & paste is getting supercharged in Android O. It’s now intelligent and can recognize phone numbers, addresses, or even the names of businesses, automatically highlighting them with a long press so you don’t have to fiddle around as much with those tiny handles. The best part is once highlighted, Smart Text Selection will suggest apps to use to open that information be it Google Maps for addresses, Dialer for a phone number, or Gmail for an email address. Since it’s all done on the device, so no data leaves your phone. Android O is faster This was more part of Vitals, Android features that look to keep your phone secure, healthy, and optimized for performance. Google says they’ve done a ton of stuff behind the scenes to ensure apps are 2x faster than they were in Nougat. This is thanks to extensive changes they’ve done to Android’s runtime. What’s more, you’ll...

CyanogenMod will now be known as LineageOS after company decides to close down major operations

CyanogenMod will now be known as LineageOS after company decides to close down major operations

It is indeed with a very heavy heart that we are posting this, but as you all must be knowing by now, our favorite CyanogenMod have officially decided to call it a day. In case you haven’t heard, Cyanogen Inc.is going through some big changes. The company is consolidating all of their efforts to a single Palo Alto office in California in order to better work their future endeavors. But with that also came word that some key personnel will be taking exits. Actually, “some key personnel” would be a vast understatement — Steve Kondik, for whom Cyanogen was a brainchild, is leaving the company. Thankfully, Cyanogen Inc. isn’t looking to screw over the development community with this move. While the company will be shutting down their efforts on CyanogenMod (not Cyanogen the OS) at the end of this year, they will make the source code available for anyone who wants to continue building on it. So, of course, a new team arrives to take that task: meet LineageOS. We’re not sure where LineageOS will go from here. We know the team consists of some folks from the original CyanogenMod project who either didn’t or couldn’t join in for the corporate hell ride, but we’re not sure who, exactly. We don’t even know for sure if Steve Kondik will be joining in, though a Tweet with the hashtag “Lineage” on his timeline seems to suggest as much. In any case, CyanogenMod is gone, and if you want to continue following the spiritual successor to that then here are the accounts you’ll want to pay attention to: @LineageAndroid on Twitter Lineage on Facebook +Lineage on Google+ LineageOS.org Source:...

Google starts rolling out a new refreshing UI for the Play Store

Google is known for its regular updates and since the introduction of Pixel, the first ever phone made by Google the company showed off a new Play Store UI in a support video for their  flagship device. Now, users are reporting that the new UI is slowly rolling out to devices. This update includes new colors and a revamped install page. The first change you’ll notice is on the home page of the Play Store. A new shade of green has taken over for the Android-y shade we’re used to seeing. The big featured carousel across the top has been shrunk down and moved underneath the “Apps & Games” bar. However, some screenshots show the carousel has been removed completely. Moving on to the install page, the “Install” button is much bigger. The ratings and installs information looks completely different. They’ve removed the category icons, which makes it easier to read. The “More Information” section has been moved lower on the page, and developer info has been slightly reworded. All in all, these are simple changes that make the Play Store a little easier to use. So what do you guys think of the new updated interface? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below. Cheers!! Source:...
