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:...

The next Android OS is called Android 6.0 Marshmallow [Official]

The next Android OS is called Android 6.0 Marshmallow [Official]

We are just a month away from Google showing off its new Android 6.0 operating system code named Marshmallow.  They will do so, with the launch of the two new Nexus devices. One is made by LG (Nexus 5 2015) and its brother will be bigger like the Nexus 6 but built by Huawei. Google had kept a lot of people guessing what their next Android OS will be named, when early this year, Android M as introduced. If the preview builds are to be considered. Android 6.0 Marshmallow brings with it a number of changes, visual and internal. The first thing you will notice when you turn on an Android 6.0 running device is the new boot animation, next you can see that the app launcher  has changed, it now comes with a search option which could turn out to be very handy, if you have many app screens. Home screen rotation is finally here (though some app launchers have done this job for us in the past). Also, Quick settings tab can now be arranged. Now talking about internal changes, Android 6.0 will let users give the power to choose which permission you want which app to have. So, if you do not allow an app to use your mic, it wont be allowed to use it. Finger print scanning is also built in the OS’s architecture, which means improved finger print scanning in supported devices. Lastly there is a cool new function which lets you decide what notifications to show on the status bar. For example if you always have your bluetooth on, and do not want the icon to take the space then simply remove it.  This means a much cleaner looking status bar. Now it is just a matter of waiting until Google shows off the final build of Android 6.0 Marshmallow to the world in...

Android 5.0 Lollipop – A Sweet New Take on Android

Android 5.0 Lollipop – A Sweet New Take on Android

Google has finally made it official, the much awaited “Android L” is…*drum rolls please*… Android 5.0 Lollipop. Not only that but Google also announced the Nexus 6 made by Motorola, Nexus 9 made by HTC and Asus’s Nexus Player. We had received a glimpse of the new operating the system at Google I/O earlier this year and couldn’t wait for it to get officially released. Now that it is finally here, lets get straight into the nitty gritties! Material Design Android 5.0 Lollipop, as its called has visually been modified quite a bit (much to our hearts content) thanks to the Material Design language used. A lot more bolder colors, new icons and animations breathe new life to the look and feel of Android. The multitasking has been given a very nice overhaul, resembling the Tab switching in Google Chrome. Not only does it look more beautiful, it has become much more fluid. Notifications Next in the list of changes is the new notifications, specially found on the lock screen. It includes the ability to hide sensitive content for these notifications. You can control which apps are allowed to pop up notifications, either you can prioritize them, hide sensitive content or turn them off completely. If you are watching a movie or playing a game, incoming calls are no longer a bother, a notification will slide down where you can either accept the call or ignore it. This way you will not get disturbed from what you have been doing. Project Volta It helps better manage batter life, with Android 5.0 Lollipop you now get a nifty battery saving mode. This function extends the battery life for 90mins longer. Also, the time left for the charge to be completed is also shown, which is quite handy, if you are like me looking at the percentage every 15mins. New Quick Settings The quick settings panel which was introduced with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, has received a much needed change. Now the quick settings toggle displays the most frequently used settings first, then the rest if the list. Now straight from the quick settings menu you can control the flash light, hotspot and cast screen controls. Pretty handy no? Device Sharing Google has taken the use of cloud storage to a whole new level. Now as Google does back up, your contacts, photos and messages, you can access them from any device running Android 5.0 Lollipop. You just need to log in to your own profile on nay phone and you access all your info which has been backed up. There is a nice little feature called “Guest User”, where you can just allow the content...
