PSA: Your Android phone can now handle two-factor authentication without any codes.

If you use two-factor auth (and you should!), this is well worth enabling.

Step 1: Go to https://myaccount.google.com/security.

Step 2: Select "2-Step Verification" and confirm your password.

Step 3: Select "Google prompt" and enroll/confirm your device.

That's it! The next time you try to sign into your Google account somewhere new, you'll automatically receive a prompt on your phone asking you to verify the sign-in. All you'll have to do is tap "Yes" in the prompt to proceed.

More security, less hassle. That's a winning combination.

So happy to see this seemingly small change in +Google Docs: When copying a file, the copy now stays in the same folder as the original by default.

Seems like a trivial shift, but man -- it's gonna save me a ton of time and irritation. Really does make a lot more sense this way.

Some really powerful new features coming to one of my favorite Wear faces!

I´m extremely excited to present you the next Pujie Black (https://goo.gl/MYe0Yd)! I think (deeply hope) you will like what is coming.

Custom watch hands & background (no images)
Starting version 3.4 Pujie Black has it's own vector drawing tool inside, allowing you to draw your own watch hands and backgrounds (and hopefully more in the future). These watch hands and background will be fully vector, meaning they will be crisp at any resolution. You can also share them with other users!

Individually change indicator size and position
You can now change the size and position of the indicators freely. Look in the Shared tab to enable this feature.

Backups
A better backup method has been implement. From the settings you can send yourself a backup file and import this on another device or just keep it as a backup (which will contain your presets, watch hands and background).

Icon pack support
For the tap drawer you can now assign icons from the icon packs you have installed on your device.

Sharing
Sharing has been slightly changes too. To account for the increasingly long share codes. When you share, the codes are uploaded to the cloud, which allows you to share with a much shorter share code. This does mean that share codes are not really meant for back-upping any more, please use the backup mechanism for that.

To help you get started with the watch part designer, please have a look at the manual:

https://pujieblack.com/help/watch-part-designer.html

check out this video to see a quick 3 min demo of how to design a watch hand:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rnr9MyeL7LI

The update is rolling out now, you should receive it soon!

Full Change log
- Design your own watch hands and backgrounds
- Share your watch hands and backgrounds with others
- Free placement and sizing of indicators
- Improved backup mechanism
- Icon pack support for tap drawer
- Longer tick marks
- New date formats
- Optimizations & bug fixes
- Much shorter share code (for presets and watch parts), by storing them in the cloud___Some really powerful new features coming to one of my favorite Wear faces!

Take a second to +1 Kevin's original post (https://plus.google.com/+KevinBarry/posts/9nQzgKAsBc3) if you want to show your interest in getting Google Now integration in third-party launchers.

On the Google Now Launcher API

There’s been a lot of discussion about this so I wanted to acknowledge it.
We’d love to have Google Now as a page in Nova Launcher. Unfortunately that’s not practical (at least not yet).
Google added an API to allow device manufactures to include Google Now in their launchers, but currently the Google app limits clients to just system apps (the launcher that comes preinstalled on your device) and potentially it’s legally licensed just to Sony.

What about the patriksletmo’s github repository?
This is simply decompiled code from the Sony Launcher. It’s not legal for anyone to distribute and it still only works for system apps. It does not change anything.

What about root?
Technically, in theory, it’d be possible for a cleanly rewritten implementation of the API to be used by a third party launchers like Nova Launcher, if root was used to install the launcher as a system app. But this is not a good idea.
1) It might bother Google. The limit in the API is intentionally done, bypassing that restriction might cause some issues on their end, and make them less interested in working with third party launchers at all.
2) Google could easily break it at any time, either intentionally or accidentally. The API is likely still in development, they might make breaking change and notify Sony but not anyone unofficially using the API. They also easily could block third party launchers in other ways if they decided the system app check was no longer sufficient.
3) It’d break other things. Installing another app as a system app breaks OTA updates, breaks Android Pay and breaks uninstalling. Additionally, most users, even root users, don’t know the implications of installing an app as a system app and don’t know how to do it. +Cliff Wade would be overrun with support requests.

What about the future?
That’s the glimmer of hope. I can’t think of any long term reason why Google would not want third party launchers to include Google Now, and if they’re supporting the API for OEMs anyway they likely will open it up. Hopefully this is a test run, and they release support for third party launchers in the future, without any root shenanigans. Unfortunately things like this don’t always move quickly and it could easily be another year or two before we’d see such a thing.

What can we do?
Plus one this post if you want Google to open the API up for Nova Launcher to use. I’ll send them a link so they can see the interest and hopefully that encourage them to prioritize opening up the API.

Off-topic or obnoxious comments will be deleted.___Take a second to +1 Kevin's original post (https://plus.google.com/+KevinBarry/posts/9nQzgKAsBc3) if you want to show your interest in getting Google Now integration in third-party launchers.

One of the key ways we're going to harness the power of our journalism is to have an optimization group. This Tronc team will work with all the local markets to harness the power of our local journalism, feed it into a funnel, and then optimize it so that we reach the biggest global audience possible.

Theory: "Tronc" is actually an elaborate joke intended to teach employees the dangers of bad branding and meaningless buzz-speak.

Seriously -- that's the only way all of this makes any sense.

Huh. Well, that's a new one. Feeling a little delirious today, are we, Google?

"Welcome to the McDonald's drive-through. This drive-through works better if used at a McDonald's restaurant. Want to go to McDonald's now?"

This new Google app looks cool. You should check it out, especially if you have kids. (But even if you don't.)

The former Googler who led development of the Moto X and Moto 360 has left Motorola -- to focus on self-driving trucks.

New beginnings.

I've spent the last year thinking how can I bring everything I've learned to date to the benefit of society. As a technologist, I believe there will be no technology more transformative over the next decade than self driving cars.

The future is almost here, but it is time to accelerate it. Its time to rebuild our transportation system, stop the carnage on the road and make our economy scale, its time to take action.

Thrilled and humbled to finally be able to share what kept me up for the past few months. Lets move!
