A quick list of Google devices that will launch in the next months
Just summarizing what is already known, looks like Google will have a very busy time until the end of the year:
+ 2 new Nexus / Google phones
+ Google Home
+ Daydream VR
+ 2 new Nexus / Google smartwatches
+ Project Ara dev edition
+ Maybe a new Chromebook Pixel (the current one has been discontinued, and a new model would fit perfectly with an official Android on Chrome OS launch to stable)
+ Maybe a new tablet? (if only to do another push for the convertible market now that we have split screen support)

Add to that major software launches with Google Assistant and Allo and I can't shake the feeling that we might see a bigger launch event in a few weeks...

This should be really interesting. Btw if you don't know who David Reveman: He is the original Compiz developer, now working on Chrome OS for Google

Really really excited about XDC in Helsinki next month! Not least this from David Reveman:
'This talk will give an overview of the pieces that make up the ARC++ graphics stack, describe how Wayland is used as a compositor protocol and explain how we achieve the goal of running Android applications on ChromeOS with native graphics performance and window management capabilities expected from an application running on a Chromebook. It will also provide some basic pointers for running Wayland clients on ChromeOS, and future direction.'___This should be really interesting.

So basically the old Chrome Extension will now look exactly like the Chrome App (which will be phased out because of the end of Chrome Apps). So everybody should switch back to the Chrome Extension. Did I get this right?

Some interesting extra technical tidbits about Android 7.0

Working on FK for the Nexus 5X's Nougat release and noticed three things:

1 - default I/O scheduler is now noop
2 - new cpuset core configuration at the platform level. There's a new "top_apps" node and cpu3 will be used exclusively for the top_app

# update foreground cpuset now that processors are up
# foreground gets all CPUs except CPU 3
# CPU 3 is reserved for the top app
write /dev/cpuset/foreground/cpus 0-2,4-5
write /dev/cpuset/foreground/boost/cpus 4-5
write /dev/cpuset/background/cpus 0
write /dev/cpuset/system-background/cpus 0-2
write /dev/cpuset/top-app/cpus 0-5

I wonder why cpu3 for the top app and not a core from the high perf cluster.

3 - new power profile measurements which shows radio scanning for signal consumes WAY less power than before. ~90% reduction!___Some interesting extra technical tidbits about Android 7.0

Google is making its WiFi Assistant available for Non-Project-Fi users. Neat. This basically provides you with an automatic VPN that gets activated when you connect to a (supported) open WiFi. Right now this is limited to a few countries, still good to see that move.

Keep your connection speed high and your data bill low with Wi-Fi Assistant, a feature that allows you to automatically and securely connect to more than a million, free open Wi-Fi hotspots. Originally a Project Fi exclusive feature, we are now expanding Wi-Fi Assistant to all Nexus users in the United States, Canada, Mexico, UK and Nordic countries. This will roll out to users over the next few weeks. Learn more: http://goo.gl/8I4wcA___Google is making its WiFi Assistant available for Non-Project-Fi users. Neat.

Sony is the first big manufacturer to detail which devices will get Android 7.0. Suprisingly the Z3 (which was part of the developer preview) is not on the list, but I guess this most likely just is a an oversight.

Sounds legit.

The Marlin leak is based on N maintainence release 1. Nmr1. With Googles announcements today of doing quarterly maintainence releases leads me to believe the upcoming nexus devices are going to be launched along side mr1. Probably around the same time they were last year. Current version of Android N that is being pushed to nexus devices is based on developer preview 5 and does not have any of the "proprietary features android police and myself have been leaking" expect a developer preview of mr1 with these changes soon... ___Sounds legit.

Android getting regular maintenance releases, another Nougat update already in works
Here is a really interesting tidbit from the official Android 7.0 announcement for developers:
We’re moving Nougat into a new regular maintenance schedule over the coming quarters. In fact, we’ve already started work on the first Nougat maintenance release, that will bring continued refinements and polish, and we’re planning to bring that to you this fall as a developer preview. Stay tuned!
My money is still on Android 7.1 coming with the new Nexus devices.

Indeed. A pretty strange move.

It's interesting/odd to me that Google is openly participating in a push for the V20 to be the first phone to ship with Nougat.

This means the first device to ship the new Android version will be one with a big weird manufacturer skin over it, touching all that stock goodness.

But then again, Nexus phones won't be so stock anyway from what we've seen. Hmm.

Google Duo rollout seems to have started. At least I could push it to my device via the web client for the Play Store. Unfortunately being available in the Play Store doesn't mean that it actually works. Right now the initial number verification seems to only work with US numbers.

Fun stuff: The Chromebook Pixel just got updated to Chrome OS 54 (dev channel) which also contains another update to the Android environment. And this already comes with all the security fixes that the Android team has actually scheduled for next month ;) So the new release doesn't only fix the last remaining QuadRooter bug, but also delivers a lot more security relevant fixes that even Nexus devices will only get next month.
Edit: See the comments why my initial QuadRooter mention is bogus.


Fun stuff: The Chromebook Pixel just got updated to Chrome OS 54 (dev channel) which also contains another update to the Android environment. And this already comes with all the security fixes that the Android team has actually scheduled for next month ;) So the new release doesn't only fix the last remaining QuadRooter bug, but also delivers a lot more security relevant fixes that even Nexus devices will only get next month.

Yet another service is getting decoupled from Google+. (not really a surprise in this case, though)

Guess a whole lot of us are going to become "business customers" for Google soon ;) Let's wait and see how Allo turns out in the end but right now and especially with the lack of a desktop client I doubt that I will make that switch any time soon.

Google's new video chat app Duo incoming. Personally I never use video chat and I doubt Duo will change that.

Google Duo: Rolling out now
Duo is all about video chat. In fact, that's the only thing it has. Sign in with your phone number and start video chatting right away, based on the contacts and phone numbers you already have in your phone.

The fact that you can have very high quality video chat even on bad connections is a testament to how much effort the Duo team put into really making their core experience great right from day 1.

There's certainly a few things I'd add (a tablet app for one), but keeping it simple, stable, and totally reliable is a huge plus and reason enough for me to keep using it.

You can pre-register on Google Play and get a notification when Duo is ready to download: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.tachyon___Google's new video chat app Duo incoming. Personally I never use video chat and I doubt Duo will change that.

I think the most interesting bit of information here actually is: Those devices are still going to use Linux Kernel 3.18. Also the US version won't properly work in most European countries (due to the lack of LTE band 3 and 20 - which are used here in Austria for instance). So much for the hope for one global model. Double-meh.

Dear Internet: Please don't flip out because of bad photos of an unreleased device. We've been through that last year. And in hindsight it was pretty ridiculous. So: Breaaaaaathe.

A late addition to the Android 7.0 preview program from Sony - and this is time it's even a recent device! Good.

Some really interesting news. Turns out Google is working on a totally new OS called "Fuchsia". Open Source, newly developed from the ground up, app development happens with Dart. Oh and some well known former OS developers from the likes of BeOS, webOS, Android and iOS are part of the developement team.
See my linked article in german for lots more details or head over to OSNews (who did the original reporting) and the very insightful Hacker News thread:
