It's monthly update time for Nexus users! (and a few other devices) Google just has released the Android Security Bulletin for May 2016 [1]. The new release fixes a whole bunch of critical issues (and yes: this yet again includes two that were found in the mediaserver)
Note that this Bulletin has been renamed from Nexus to Android Security Bulletin which also coincides with covering issues that affect only non-Nexus devices. (there is one of those in the current notes). Also Google now explicitely lists which Nexus devices are vulnerable to certain issues. For instance there is a critical issue in the Nvidia video driver that only applies to the Nexus 9.
Also say goodbye to the Nexus 10 - it is now officially unsupported and won't get any updates anymore.

Some good improvements for Google Photos

New redesigned search experience, customizable movies, and more

Rolling out now, the latest Google Photos update helps you find your photos faster with a new search bar. Start searching in one tap, or scroll down after tapping on the search bar to see faces, places, and photo types from your library.

In addition, Google Photos now offers the ability to customize automatically created movies with your own music, photos, and videos, so it’s easier than ever to make the perfect video after a holiday or trip. It’s also perfect for Mother’s Day – which you knew was coming up on May 8, right?

Finally, it’s now possible to rename or delete device folders you’ve created and manage your photos on SD cards by adding a new folder, copying, and moving photos.

These changes make Google Photos faster and easier to use than ever, and will be coming soon to iOS.

Here is another recent article of mine that I forgot to post (oops), in which I argue that Google is preparing for automatic system updates with Android N. Think: Installing the monthly security updates over night. All the pieces are there: With Direct Boot [1] it will be possible to have important apps like the alarm clock running before entering your encryption passphrase. Also there already is a "automatic system updates" switch in the developer settings. But most importantly: This is a very necessary improvement. Now that we have so frequent updates this becomes a real hassle for regular users, to which automatic install is the answer.

Secure those bits!

The Android security team has been hard at work building new tools to help developers protect user data in transit.  :)  Yesterday Alex posted about two great features that shipped last year in M:

https://security.googleblog.com/2016/04/protecting-against-unintentional.html

I'm particularly proud of the strategy I came up with to help detect any plaintext traffic leaving an app using a complex pile of iptables rules.  It's super easy to enable detection in your app with just one method call to this new StrictMode API:

https://developer.android.com/reference/android/os/StrictMode.VmPolicy.Builder.html#detectCleartextNetwork()

And here's the guts of where the iptables rules are generated using the powerful u32 module to do "shallow" packet inspection, both IPv4/v6 and TCP/UDP are supported:... more »

Since it does bit banging to sniff out the explicit SSL 3.1 (TLS 1.0) signature, I don't recommend shipping it enabled in production, as that version number might increment in the future.___

Interesting observation: Microsoft's patent licensing revenue is down by 26 percent compared to last year. Businessinsider is attributing this to shifts in the Android market (towards a lower median price point and manufacturers that don't have patent agreements with MS). Personally I don't buy that reasoning, 26 percent seems waaaay too much for those trends, also usually afaik those patent fees haven't been coupled to devices prices.
A way more likely explanation (and one that has been rumored for quite some time): MS has dropped (or severely reduced) the patent licensing fees for those manufacturers that ship Microsoft apps by default on their devices.

tl;dr: The LG G5 and the HTC 10 break the USB Type C spec. sigh

Can Qualcomm QC and USB Type-C coexist on the same connector?
I get this question sometimes, so I wanted to do a quick post to address it.
tl;dr : Type-C Spec forbids it.

Longer explanation:
Qualcomm's QC2.0 and 3.0 use variable voltage on Vbus in order to get more power over the same USB A-to-microB cables. My #Nexus6 , for example, comes with a Motorola Turbo Charger which outputs at 5V, 9V, and 12V. QC 2.0 allows for up to 18W charging over an A-to-microB cable by using the combination 12V * 1.5A.

18W is no slouch, actually, and right now, that's actually 3W more than the 15W that USB Type-C 3A charging can do.

The difference is that Qualcomm's solution is very proprietary, and it takes over the D+/D- (usb data) lines for good, so that Type-A port can't be used to communicate to your PC at the same time you fast charge.

USB Type-C doesn't have that restriction. You can have a hub with a 3A charging port that also hooks up all the data lines as the negotiation is separate from D+/D-.

When the USB-IF got to specifying Type-C, at the same time, considered higher voltages and much more dynamic power requirements as well. That is when the USB Power Delivery was introduced as well. Power Delivery will be able to handle much higher voltages (up to 20V) and higher currents (up to 5A) in a non-proprietary way.

This section of the Type-C specification 4.8.2  calls out chargers and devices that want to use a proprietary charging method and restricts them specifically from modifying Vbus (which is what QC does to get to 9V and 12V), and from altering roles from source to sink.

The idea is to reduce the confusion that could happen because PD does all of these things in an open and non-proprietary way.

If you're looking for an explanation why the Nexus 6P and 5X do not support QC of some kind, it's because of the final line in the section I've screenshotted here.

Also, any USB Type-C charger that purports to support QC2.0 or QC3.0 out of the same Type-C port is also breaking this section of the spec as well.

Hope this has been helpful!

The rumors were true after all. For the first time a non-Nexus device gets an Android developer preview. Great to see that happening.

Today, we’re excited to announce that Sony will join the N Developer Preview family of supported devices with the Xperia™ Z3.

The Xperia™ Z3 joins Nexus 5X, 6, 6P, Nexus Player, the Pixel C tablet and General Mobile 4G (Android One) in giving you an early look at the next version of Android. Sony has been working closely with us to bring you the N Developer Preview on Xperia™ for early testing and development.

To get started, you can download the latest N Developer Preview from Sony (currently Developer Preview 2, available at the link below) and manually flash it to your device. You’ll then receive future Developer Preview updates over-the-air, direct from Sony.

We’re continuing to work toward giving you more options for early testing and development on N Developer Preview. Stay tuned!

This must be some kind of record. Google has now released not one, not two but three Chrome extensions to save links over the course of a few days. All adding different workflows and save locations. This is getting ridiculous fast. Very fast.

Really like the Material redesign of the Chrome browser's - uhm - Chrome. Still some parts to go for a full redesign, though.

Some really great additions to Inbox. Especially the event bundling looks like something that could be highly useful.

First footage of what using Magic Leap is supposed to look like. Pretty impressive, but I still can't shake that feeling of this being a really elaborate hoax (given the investments they got over the course of the last years this is highly unlikely, but something about this just feels crazy)

As expected: here we finally have podcast support for Google Play Music. Now let's hope that the APK shows up soon, so we can give it a proper test run.

Wil be interesting to see if Google used the six months since announcing this to actually provide a proper UI for podcasts. Somehow I have my doubts...

Multi Window support is much improved with developer preview 2 for one very specific reason: Videos don't stop anymore if you change focus to the other side. This also means that you can now let any video run in the background (audio only) while you look around for another app on the home screen - which might not be the intended usage but it's still pretty nifty.
To clarify: While looking around the home screen in multi-window mode the primary window is shifted to the very edge of the display and only hinted at through a few pixel rows on the side.

That's very, very unfortunate.

Intel's documentation implies that Skylake devices may die early under Linux, so probably best not to buy one until that's fixed___That's very, very unfortunate.

Folders got a new design in the second developer preview for Android N. Looking good in my opinion.
