Derek Ross1,093,727The original Android Hangout Show returns!Hi. I was the first guy on Google+ to start doing live Hangout Shows for Android news and discussion way back during the Hangouts on Air beta days. My team and I ran a successful Android related Hangout show for for 74 weeks in a row before our hiatus. Our show was watched and listed to by thousands every week via Google+, YouTube, and various Podcast platforms.The band is getting back together... ...or at least the lead singer.I've come to realize that the shows offered today just don't cut it. They're not professional. They're boring. They don't offer any value such as show guests or giveaways. They're just not what my team used to provide and it angers me.I'm going to try my best to change that for you guys. I'm tentatively going to relaunch our Android on Air show next month. The time and date are subject to change pending renovations to my office. If everything can be completed by then, I'll be back in business providing you with quality HoA Android goodness.The original Android Hangout Show returns!2014-06-06 03:00:00100

Gregg Lantz2,962Tomorrow is a taxing day here in the United States. You get to decide if you want to buy Glass (sorry IRS). If you're not sure and would like to know what others are saying, add this circle.  You'll be able to look at public posts from people that use Glass and people that purchased Glass and put it on the shelf while software was being developed. You'll get both sides of the story. Hopefully this circle will help make the decision process a little easier. Don't forget to post your questions with #askanexplorer  so  people can chime in and help answer your questions. #glassexplorers   #throughglass   #sharedcircles   #circleshare   #wearables   #wearabletech   #glasswaiters  2014-04-14 21:08:59425105

+The Verge says Android 5.0 is better than iOS 8

While many on Google+ might call them #iVerge, it seems they've ruled in favor of Android this time around. The Verge gave Android a score of 8.7 and iOS a score of 8.2.

1TB of free Google Drive storage

I don't know about you, but I live in the cloud. If you do too, you'll be happy with Google's latest push to get you to use their storage services. Google is giving away 1 TB of Google Drive storage to those that purchase a new Chromebook this holiday season.

It's also worth mentioning that some people are having luck activating this promotion on already owned Chromebooks. Visit http://goo.gl/C1O5Na to see if the promotion is available to you.

Hey, is that a Nexus 6 in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

Today's the first day that I've worn jeans with my Nexus 6. Yes, it's a big phone. Yes, it feels large in my pocket. Yes, it still fits in my pocket without issue.

Photoshop Streaming

This morning I received my invite to Adobe Photoshop Streaming from Chrome. While you can't really tell from the screenshot below, you'll have to trust me that it's being streamed through Chrome. True Chromebook screenshots and performance testing will come tonight as I don't have my Chromebook with me right now.

This is exciting and brings me one step closer to being able to fully kick Windows out of my home computing life.

The previous announcement was here: http://goo.gl/rmoQ3O

Avoid the madness, Amazon's Black Friday sales start tomorrow

Amazon's Black Friday deals http://goo.gl/JlmVNB start tomorrow and run for 8 straight days. They also plan on dropping new deals every 10 minutes throughout each day. They're offering 20% off on tablets, desktops as well as 30% off laptops and tons of other great deals. I may pick up a new TV...

As for Black Friday shopping in general, I do all most of my holiday shopping via Amazon anyways. Only on extreme rare occasion do I put myself through the madness that has become Black Friday. Shame on any store that is opening on Thanksgiving.

Non-scientific Nexus 6 Photo Test

Today at work I stepped outside to take a few photos with my Nexus 6 for the first time. I took 4 in normal mode and 4 with HDR enabled. I didn't try to get amazing shots. I just did quick point and shoots. I'm happy with the results.

Nexus 6 will install carrier apps, but there's a way around it

Don't like carrier apps to be automatically installed on your Nexus you purchased from Google Play? Try this simple trick. Insert your SIM card after you've already setup your device. Thanks for your help +Jeremy Waite.

Random Nexus 6 thoughts...

I've only used the Nexus 6 for a few hours last night and a few hours today, about 8 hours in total, but I have a few more thoughts beyond my Nexus 6 Unboxing and First Impressions.

Size
Holy shit this is a HUGE phone. I was in bed last night using my Nexus 6, in standard phone over head position, and I was half afraid it would fall on my face and knock me out.  It's a damn big phone.

Is it conformable to use? Eh.. It's not unconformable, it's just a feeling that you'll have to get used to if you're not used to these larger devices. I'm not used to it, but I can see myself getting used to it and no longer caring in a week or two.

Battery
I'm at 42% right now, with 2 hours and 15 minutes of screen on time, with 13 hours off of the charger. That's very acceptable for thef... more »

Battery
I'm at 42% right now, with 2 hours and 15 minutes of screen on time, with 13 hours off of the charger. That's very acceptable for the first day of use and first full charge.

Performance
While I haven't used the Nexus 6 all that much, I haven't noticed any lag or jank that some have mentioned. My Moto X 2014 had a lot of home screen and overview lag after I encrypted it with Lollipop. I'm not seeing that on the Nexus 6. It's fast for what I've done with it thus far. I'll need to test more heavily intensive apps and tasks as time goes on.

I miss my Moto X
I don't miss the size. I miss Moto's tweaks. I miss Moto Assist and I miss Moto Display. I think I'll be able to get by with the new Lollipop notifications and interruptions features in lieu of Moto Assist for the most part, sure they won't be automatic based on the time of day or an event, but I'll get by I believe. As for Moto Display, I just miss it plain and simple. Being able to have the screen stay on while I'm looking at it, wave my hand to see the time or check notifications, those are some simple, yet useful features that I used constantly. Lollipop's Ambient Display is nice, but I miss what I had. Picking up the Nexus 6 does activate it, so it's similar to the Moto X, just not fully as convenient.

Camera
I've only taken a few photos so I can't comment. Plenty of testing will follow.

Speakers
I'm loving the dual speakers. I jammed on my commute to work this morning like a rock star. As always more testing is needed.

Review coming in a week or so
That's really it for now. Back in July, I wrote this piece http://goo.gl/heG6mi publicly stating how much I did not want a 6 inch phone. Will I keep the Nexus 6, who knows. I need a whole lot more time with it before I come to any conclusion.___

Mozilla Firefox to make Yahoo the default search engine

For the past 10 years, Google has been the default search engine in Firefox. That's going to change come December. Yahoo and Mozilla just signed a 5 year deal to make Yahoo the browser's default.

According to w3schools, Chrome is now the most-used browser in the world, with 60.4 percent market share. Firefox is No. 2 with 23.4 percent and Microsoft’s Internet Explorer has 9.5 percent.

I'm curious if the default engine will change for existing installs that get upgraded or if this will only change for new installs. It seems kind of a sneaky move to change the default without at least notifying their users.

Either way, congrats to Yahoo, this is very significant.

+Nokia N1 revealed, it looks like an iPad, and that's okay.

The real meat and potatoes here is the fact that this table DOES come with Google Services, has an unlockable bootloader if you'd like to run stock Android 5.0 Lollipop via custom ROMs, was built with Nokia designed hardware and software specifications and not just Nokia branded, comes in at a very wallet friendly $250, and fills a craving that's been brewing for years.

Who cares that it looks like an iPad. The Nexus 9 resembles an iPad too. The fact of the matter is this: tablets looks similar because they're tablets. We need to stop criticizing Nokia and give this device a chance to shine. I mean, look at the amazing feats Nvidia is doing with the Shield tablet. This could be that good, if we just let it happen.

Developers: Start your engines with Android Auto

We haven't heard much about Android Auto since the announcement at Google IO back in June. Today, +Timothy Jordan took to the +Android Developers page to let developers know that now's the time to start making your applications ready for the inside of a vehicle. Now, where are these cars and when can I buy one? Great video by the way.

Google Play Services update adds Trusted Places Smart Lock

For those that don't know, Smart Lock is essentially what Motorola used to call Trusted Bluetooth Devices on the Moto X. These devices are paired Bluetooth devices that when paired will disable your lock screen security so that you don't have to constantly enter your PIN, Password, or Pattern while a Bluetooth device you know and trust is connected. Smart Lock was just updated to add Trusted Places as well. This means, while at let's say work, home, or another GPS location, your lock screen security will be disabled too.

Motorola's Spotlight Play app updated, incoming Duet

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Duet. In fact, it’s been quite a while since we got our first look at Duet back at Google IO in June. During the Google ATAP presentation, Regina Dugan noted that part of the reason behind Duet was not only that after Glen wanted to draw again, but they were hoping to breathe life into an art form that is almost lost. Glen Keane retired in March 2012 after being at Disney for 38 years.

If you haven't seen this short animation yet, you need to watch it. It's beautiful.

+Marques Brownlee reviews the Nexus 6

Here's another Nexus 6 review from someone I trust when it comes to mobile tech. The Nexus 6 isn't perfect, but no phone is perfect. I'm confident that any little issues that exist such as random jank or battery life can be improved with software updates. As for the video, it's long, but it's worth the watch. Marques does an amazing job as always.

My Nexus 6 hasn't shipped yet... hopefully this week. I can't wait to put it through the paces, review it, and compare it to my Moto X 2014. To me, the Moto X is perfect, so it's going to be a fun comparison and ultimately a hard decision when it comes to picking my final daily driver.

I noticed none of the blogs said it was actually available to buy. But considering they had a sign up at I/O they might be white-listing emails.

We did it G+! Thanks to everyone that helped spread the word. Hopefully someday Google will offer better communication and more transparency so issues like this don't arise as often as they do. Thanks again.

Firstly, I would like to personally thanks, in this particular order:
• +Wayne Piekarski, Senior Developer Advocate at Google (focusing on Android, Wear, and Glass) and moderator of the Android Wear Developers community on G+, who reached out in less than half a day.
• +Derek Ross, writer for Phandroid and Android Enthusiast among many others passions, who showed compassion and did a simple but efficient post reshare creating many ripples.
• +François Simond alias supercurio, a french mobile engineer mainly known for his work on Project Voodoo and recently involved in mobile camera and display calibration, who took the time to wrote a pertinent post and chatted with me via Hangout. He clearly shows his interest in preventing these critical issues for any developer, in improving the transparency concerning the removal process and above all, in understanding.

Secondly, my thanks goes to everyone who wished me luck, +1 and re-shared my post. I cannot cite you all because I do not want to be accused of any spam (obvious reason), but I am sure you will recognize yourself.

Thirdly, a little recap including where I think I failed. It may sound a bit paranoid, but I have no precise idea of what went wrong. Thus, I tend to see it as a sum of factors which triggered the removal instead of one big factor alone.
better safe than sorry, right?

Nov 10, 2014 at 2:36 PM - Receipt of a mail entitled "Notification from Google Play"
This is a notification that your application, Reversi for Android Wear, with package ID org.quet.android.wear.reversi, has been removed from the Google Play Store.
REASON FOR REMOVAL: Violation of the spam provisions of the Content Policy.
Your title and/or description attempts to impersonate or leverage another popular product without permission. Please remove all such references. Do not use irrelevant, misleading, or excessive keywords in apps descriptions, titles, or metadata.

First potential mistake might be in the title itself: "Reversi for Android Wear".
Quoting the brand guidelines, "[...]Android™ should have a trademark symbol the first time it appears in a creative.[...]". Additionally, there are no specific guidelines for "Android Wear" together, so it might be entirely forbidden.

Second mistake is in the description(s): "Reversi (sometimes known as Othello) is a classic strategy board game ported to Android Wear."
According to Wikipedia, Reversi is marketed by Pressman under the trade name Othello. Also, "to Android Wear" is not compliant with the guidelines, it could have been "for Android Wear" (think as a term referring to a platform) but again there are no specific guidelines on it, it might be forbidden. Moreover, I did not included the mention "Android is a trademark of Google Inc.".

We are now only at the second line of the description: "This game will only run on Android Wear, including non exhaustively:".
Again "Android Wear", no further explanations needed except the redundancy of the same word increases.
Below this line was a list of supported Android Wear devices (ASUS ZenWatch, LG G Watch, LG Watch R, etc...), it's probably too short to be considered as a keyword list (and was not intended as being
one) but excess of the word watch might have also increase the weight of one of these unknown factors.

I will skip two paragraphs ("features" and "how to use it") because I do not see anything problematic except few redundancies with the word "player" to the last line of the description:
If you are using Wear Mini Launcher, its drawer will not interfere at all. As expected, Wear Mini Launcher will be properly restored after you exit.
Here again, I am pretty sure I made a mistake in citing "Wear Mini Launcher" which is a popular launcher for Android Wear, this can clearly fall into "Impersonation or Deceptive Behavior" even if the developer of WML is aware of that line. It also appears after all that this is not really relevant to the description of the application.

I did not go to appeal for the removal of Reversi, but instead re-uploaded another version with a minimalist description "Reversi, the classic strategy board game at your wrist." and nothing more (maybe too minimalist to be relevant for describing properly the app).

However, I have around 7 applications for Android Wear and around one day after the removal of Reversi, I edited the description (sharing the same mistakes) of another app to add a troubleshooting part:
Wait 10 to 20 seconds after install in order to be able to select it via Start or your app drawer on your wearable.
If it is still not available, open the Android Wear app on your handheld and select Resync apps in the settings.
If it is still not showing in the list, uninstall and then install it again, and be sure to have free space available on your smartwatch.

Again and mainly, citing "Android Wear" app might have triggered something.

Additionally, I have few alerts on my developer console concerning two old "unpublished apps": _We have determined that your app uses a library or SDK (com.mobfox.sdk) that is in violation of the
Developer Program Policy. Please note that beginning Aug 1st, 2014 the Developer Program Policy requires all updates and new apps uploaded to be compliant with the advertising ID provision of the
Developer Program Policy. Apps in violation may be subject to permanent removal from the Store._
I should have fixed that but since they were unpublished I totally ignored them, and that might be another mistake which I am going to fix.

Nov 12, 2014 at 9:02 AM - Notification of Google Play Developer Account Suspension
REASON FOR TERMINATION: Multiple violations of the Content Policy and Developer Distribution Agreement as outlined in previous emails sent to the registered email address of your Publisher account.

Of course, I went to appeal. And quickly (less than two hours after I sent my appeal form) received that the the initial decision was confirmed and that my developer account will not be reinstating.

Later on, things changed again.

Now I would like to give few hints, and I also really hope something can be done to improve the removal process.

• First thing after receiving any removal notification is to calm down ("don't panic" or "don't go berzerk").
It is totally normal to be angry or feel something. But being too much emotional instead of rational will not help you when you will write your appeal form.
Same goes for any social post, be respectful and describe things clearly instead of only being aggressive.

• Do not give up so easily and do not harass everyone you know and everyone working at Google, that is probably counter-effective.
Read stories about your case and gather more information on how they succeeded to regain their account. I did not lost hope despite I estimated a really low probability to fix my issue.

• Try to prove your good faith by already being involved in one or more communities related to Android developers, and by being involved I do not mean only +1 posts and saying "wow, great" to official representatives but more by helping each others out without any distinction.

• Social pressure is also a lever, I am not famous at all and I do not know personally anyone close to the Play Store but this can help to shed a light on your issue.
However, this is also a matter of luck since it will not work if everyone is using this lever, it will not work for everyone and we certainly do not want a place crowded with people trying to get a large audience in order to solve their issue (this should be handled by the support).

• Do not be mad if this is happening to you but not your neighbors (we can see plenty of app which are not very compliant, and on purpose).
That is indeed unfair, but wishing that others fall with you will not really prevent your fall anyway. This is another story, in fact.

• Finally, as strict as it sounds, remember that if the Terms of Service are violated, Google can Terminate an account at any time, for any reason, with or without notice.


About improving the removal process and content policy enforcement, non exhaustively:

• Highlighting in red the non compliant paragraph, or even better anything which might trigger a removal.
This would be a great improvement to know more precisely what is problematic in a title/description of a submitted app, even better before publication.
Some might argue that this will help spammers and other evil actors to bypass the rules. But like in IT Security, it has now been proven that obscurantism is not a viable solution anymore.

• Following the highlighting: allowing the developer to not have to re-upload the application under a different packagename, which leads to many issues including losing ratings, losing users, paid
customers will not like it, broken links on the internet, etc. 
Because even if we can appeal for a removal of an application, this is only if we believe the process made a mistake. For instance, it is impossible to access its description in order to fix it:
"_This particular app has been disabled as a policy strike. If your developer account is still in good standing, you may revise and upload a policy compliant version of this application as a new packagename._"
This could be done by branching only one additional step, first having a chance to fix everything and update the problematic application, then if it is still not compliant, continue with the existing
process flow (re-uploading a new version, policy compliant).

• Having a points system, like certain countries do with the driving license, so you can know if you are really close or not to lose your account. Being able to regain lost point at a slower rate will also
mitigate the issue any developer could have in, let's say, more than 10 years.

• Providing more humans for developer support, as an example Google Checkout is extremely efficient for resolving issue or even asking questions.

Having a tool, or something embedded in the developer console, to do a pre-check of the description probably internally based on what triggers a removal policy. This will/should not guaranty everything is compliant, but that will certainly help.

• Making a survey which ask Android Developers about how to improve this particular topic.

• A last note on being more careful with the fake ratings and reviews, and the reputation system:
We all know that some shady developers pay for having false ratings and reviews on their application, and I am glad the detection of this bad behavior has been improved across time.
However there is a major flaw, what will happen if someone pays for false ratings and reviews to be posted on its competitor and how can the competitor prove he is being framed and has nothing to do
with all these suspicious ratings and reviews.

Google Wallet API for Digital Goods is closing, move along, there's nothing to see here.

There seems to be a lot of panic right now surrounding Google Wallet closing something without actually knowing what that something actually does. It's an API for digital goods, not physical goods. Think in-app purchases for online games. You'll still be able to buy physical goods from online retailers that support Google Wallet. For the most part, this will affect virtually no one, which is why Google is shutting it down.

So, do you use Google Wallet? I'd like to fully ditch PayPal myself, but still have to use it from time to time for certain things.

Nexus 4 OTA "locked and loaded

According to Google, the Nexus 4 OTA is all ready to go. Let's hope that's sooner than later. Interestingly enough, we're told the update is build LRX21T which is a few builds ahead of those updates rolling out to devices now.

And another one bites the dust. Do you remember the amazing Void Watch Face for Android Wear? This is the developer behind that glorious app.

Unfortunately, this happened to me recently: "_Your Google Play Developer account has been terminated due to multiple policy violations by this or associated accounts._".

REASON FOR TERMINATION: Multiple violations of the Content Policy and Developer Distribution Agreement

Now, I suspect this is because I used the term "Android Wear" in the description of my recent applications, most of the times to explain that the applications were only for android wear (people ending rating 1 star because they did not see the app on their handheld since it was for Android Wear).

This happened one day after I pushed a free Reversi for Android which received a removal notification: REASON FOR REMOVAL: Violation of the spam provisions of the Content Policy. and which I reuploaded with a 1 line description to avoid any issue. I also updated the description of another Wear app (Advanced Wear Visualizer) including troubleshooting and asking to open the "Android Wear" app on your handheld and "Resync all" from the settings if the application was not visible on the watch.
It looks like I received a ban hammer trying to help my users.

+Wayne Piekarski If you remember, you even saw (and replied to me) that I proposed my help to clean this community from spam in a previous post (happens almost daily with watchfaces which even infringe copyright of famous brands).

I am feeling distraught right now about what I can do since it is final after automated appeal rejection. However I read stories (but indeed I am just a little indie developer, not cyanogen or others big groups) where few succeeded at re-establishing their account.

Of course, if someone from +Google or close enough could help to reinstate my +Google Play account, I engage myself to keep the description as minimalist as possible, remove any Android words, etc. +Larry Page +Ellie Powers +Android Developers  +Romain Guy +Derek Ross +Artem Russakovskii___And another one bites the dust.

Nexus Player thoughts after one evening

This is nowhere near a review, but the Nexus Player is just what I was expecting. I've used the developer Android TV device, the ADT-1, for months in my living room and I see no difference thus far between the two. I've watched Hulu Plus, Netflix, Plex, and played a few games all with great success. I was happy to see all of my game data transfer between the two devices with ease.

I'm not sure why all the initial hate on this device existed, maybe the OTA that came out as reviews were flying fixed all of the issues. Anyways, a full review will follow in about a week as I use this as my main entertainment gadget over my Chromecast. (I don't have cable TV service.)

HOWTO: manually flash Android 5.0 Lollipop images

Plenty of users are reporting issues using the flash-all batch script included with the Nexus factory images. Google says if you're using the latest fastboot you should be good to go. I personally didn't have any issues (I'm using the latest fastboot) but if you're having issues, you forgot, or just don't know how to flash the images manually - something every flasher should know how to do in case things break - here's a quick and dirty guide. Enjoy!

Well, those people are assholes. I don't care how short people thought the game was at launch. Developers should get paid for their work.

+The Verge says Android 5.0 is better than iOS 8

While many on Google+ might call them #iVerge, it seems they've ruled in favor of Android this time around. The Verge gave Android a score of 8.7 and iOS a score of 8.2.
