Derek Ross1,155,718*The 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

Google+ is not dead, long live the Stream!

Apparently today is the day that we claim Google+ is dead, since it's being referred to as Google Stream, Google Photos and Hangouts. It's really just media fluff, in my opinion.

The social stream on Google+ has been referred to as a stream since day one here, 3 and a half years ago. Hell the UI used to say 'Stream'. In fact, when talking active users, Google always referred to those users as active users in the Stream.

If Google+ is rebranded to Stream, no one should care. It's not going anywhere. Facebook was branded after a few years too. It used to be called The Facebook. Though I hate to compare the two networks as they're vastly different. The name of the platform should not matter. It's the community that makes the platform.

As for Google+ being decompartmentalized,... more »

Report: Google's wireless service to only work with Nexus 6

If this report turns out to be true, this makes perfect sense. Google plans on innovating, using a different approach to wireless by marrying hardware, software, and the data connection. They couldn't do this with just any phone off the shelf. The less variables in their experiment, the better. Besides, they need a phone that can connect to both T-Mobile and Sprint. I wonder if the Nexus 5 will join the ranks as well, since it can connect to both networks. Chances are if +Huawei is making the next Nexus that they'll support it as well. We should know more soon.

The battery life debacle: form over function

Jony Ive says the reason your battery life sucks is because the iPhone is pretty and feels elegant in your hand, making you want to use it more. A larger battery would have made it heavier and uglier.

You're using it wrong! correctly!

I don't know why we race to have the thinnest phone. I want my phone to last for two full days through constant use. The Nexus 6 can't do that. It barely gets me through the day anymore. Come evening time, I'm looking for my turbo charger.

Use +Appeer to find new apps thanks to custom tailored recommendations

Finding new apps can sometimes be difficult given the sheer size of the Google Play Store along with the amount of new applications hitting the store on a daily basis. Is Appeer something that I’ll continue to use in the long run? I’m not sure, but for now, it’s an interesting idea and the whole swarm notification feature is pretty cool too.

Hands-on with the Nokia N1

Kudos to Nokia for their first Android tablet, which looks a lot like an iPad on the outside. If you recall, this tablet is designed by Nokia, carries their branding, but was assembled by Foxconn - hey, just like an iPad! Not bad for their first tablet. I'm impressed.

The display is 7.9-inches at 2048×1536 resolution. It’s powered by an 2.3GHz Intel 64-bit processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a 5300mAh battery. On the back is a 8MP camera, with a 5MP camera on the front. One really cool spec is the USB Type-C reversible charging cable. This is the newest standard that allows the USB cable to be plugged in at any orientation.

Ding Dong the witch is dead! Softcard to shut down March 31st!

File this under things that should have never existed anyways. Isis/Softcard aka the ones hindering +Google Wallet adoption, will finally be laid to rest at the end of the month. This follows recent news that Google had acquired Softcard technology and made deals with AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile to have Google Wallet included on all Android devices.

NICE.

Here's a quick hands-on of the Huawei Watch!

I don't know about all of you, but I just cannot wait to see this Android Wear watch for myself. I'm impressed. It comes in silver, black, gold, has plenty of straps available, and it has no flat tire at the bottom like the Moto 360. And speaking of the Moto 360, this watch from +Huawei Device is slightly smaller, coming in at 42mm in diameter and 11.3mm thickness. The Moto 360 is 46mm x 11.5mm. But, this doesn't mean the Moto 360 isn't amazing watch. The 360 won an award at MWC for being the best wearable!

Holy crap! Pebble Time is the most successful Kickstarter ever!

Pebble Time has over 60,00 backers, has raised over $14 million, and has over 23 days left on their campaign. It seems they're onto something with their 7 days battery life, 6,500 compatible apps, and very affordable pricing at $179.

While that battery life is nice, I'm okay with charging my Moto 360 every night when I charge my Nexus 6. If I'm already charging 1 device, I don't mind charging another. It's second nature at this point. I like the additional functionality and integration with Android Wear and I won't be buying one, but damn, if I didn't already have an Android Wear powered watch, the Pebble Time Steel would be tempting.

Well, the latest version of Google Contacts aims to make life a little easier, and goes a little material design in the process. I'm a fan.

Maybe the screen didn't turn on when you moved your wrist upwards or maybe your hands were occupied and you needed to check your watch's notification, whatever the reason, I've done this numerous times. I can't be alone here, right?

Google backtracks on Lollipop device encryption

Remember last fall when Google announced that all new devices that ship with Lollipop would ship with encryption turned on by default? Well now we're seeing new devices at Mobile World Congress 2015 and they don't have encryption on by default. It seems that Google even updated their Android device policies. It's not a requirement now, but encryption may be required in an upcoming release to be enabled out of the box.

Google+ is not dead, long live the Stream!

Apparently today is the day that we claim Google+ is dead, since it's being referred to as Google Stream, Google Photos and Hangouts. It's really just media fluff, in my opinion.

The social stream on Google+ has been referred to as a stream since day one here, 3 and a half years ago. Hell the UI used to say 'Stream'. In fact, when talking active users, Google always referred to those users as active users in the Stream.

If Google+ is rebranded to Stream, no one should care. It's not going anywhere. Facebook was branded after a few years too. It used to be called The Facebook. Though I hate to compare the two networks as they're vastly different. The name of the platform should not matter. It's the community that makes the platform.

As for Google+ being decompartmentalized, that's fine by me. I use all 3 areas: Photos for storage and editing, Hangouts for communicating, and the Stream for staying up to date with news, communicating with friends, and sharing my thoughts to the world.

In the end you should all follow me on Twitter at twitter.com/derekmross because we all know that Google+ has been a ghost town for years.

Just kidding. Long live the best social network on the planet. Google+ changed my life and helped fuel my Android reporting passion.

Seriously though, follow me on Twitter, just in case. And Instagram too:@derekmross.___

+Sundar Pichai confirms Google MVNO (wireless carrier) at MWC!

We really don't know all that much besides that fact that it's confirmed to be a real project at El Goog and that Google isn't looking to become the next major players in the game. They're looking to focus on innovations and new technology such as seamless call hand-off between WiFi and cellular data. Google sees value in hardware, software, and mobile connectivity all working well together and plans to explore that route.

I will be forever in your debt if you snag as many of these Androidified pins as you can. There are 124 available. I didn't go to CES and missed out on most of those and I would prefer not to miss out on the MWC pins too. From one Android fanboy to another: If you can help me out, I'll be forever in your debt.

You can see all of the pins here as well as their locations:

Could Huawei be making a Nexus phone?

Well, it's about time to get this Friday hypebeast started, isn't it? There's been a report that Google has been looking at Chinese OEMs for the next Nexus phone. Yes, the Nexus 6 isn't even 6 months old yet and we're starting rumors about the next iteration... Don'tcha just love Android fans? Anyways, let's play this out here.

I actually heard last fall that Google wanted a Chinese OEM to be an Android Silver player, and that it was still schedule as a go. I had heard that they were looking into Huawei. So there's that.

The larger point here than the actual OEM is that Google would be choosing a manufacturer that isn't really known outside of China. Oppo, Huawei, ZTE, and Xiaomi all produce extremely high quality devices for their flagship phones. The build quality is top notch and at often... more »

I actually heard last fall that Google wanted a Chinese OEM to be an Android Silver player, and that it was still schedule as a go. I had heard that they were looking into Huawei. So there's that.

The larger point here than the actual OEM is that Google would be choosing a manufacturer that isn't really known outside of China. Oppo, Huawei, ZTE, and Xiaomi all produce extremely high quality devices for their flagship phones. The build quality is top notch and at often times comes with a very wallet friendly price point. Choosing an "unknown" OEM could really help introduce those devices to parts of the world that they normally wouldn't see. That would be good for Android as a whole, providing more quality consumer choices for OEMs that can't enter other markets because they lack carrier support. Now, if Google pushed these devices the same way the Nexus 6 is being pushed, on all carriers, that would be a large win for these OEMs that normally wouldn't get that type of exposure.

These Chinese OEMs know what the hell they're doing when it comes to hardware and I'd use one if I could find one with stock Android. That's the problem right there. The user interface and experience on these phones is something that, well, doesn't really remind me of Android a lot of the times. It's highly skinned and highly customized. And, that's okay for their region of the world. I don't think that those UI/UX's would fly elsewhere. Marrying this hardware to a Nexus software experience sounds like a dream. A dream that I'd love to become a reality.

What are your thoughts? I'm going to go celebrate this news with a Chinese buffet for lunch. Be back soon ;)___

Google buys .app top level domain for $25 million

Being in the mobile business and in the app business you can see how the .app TLD could come in handy. Google just paid $25 million for the .app TLD. While they have no immediate plans, I'd like to think they'll put it to good use in the future. Who knows? Maybe we'll see .app domains show up in Google's new domain registry one day?

Android 5.1 with VoLTE support out of the box? Sounds like Verizon was waiting for a good reason. They wanted a stable phone with VoLTE capabilities and Google wanted a Nexus without third party software.

If I was a betting man, and I am, I'd say we'll see Android 5.1 between now and March 12th. Unless there's another push back, which can always happen.

Moto 360 to get Moto Maker support next month!

You can customize your smartphone on Moto Maker, so why not your smartwatch? That’s Motorola’s line of thinking who, starting in March, will reportedly make the Moto 360 customizable via their online tool. You'll be able to customize the band, watch color, and the default watch face - which reportedly includes a few new ones. Awesome.

dbrand skins for the Nexus 6

Recently I posted a poll on G+, asking you all for your feedback about phone skins. Did you use them? I wanted to know. Well, they're certainly cheap enough to try out. I decided to take the plunge.

Being a bit of a perfectionist, I was worried that the dbrand skin for my Nexus 6 wouldn’t line up perfectly, have gaps, or just wouldn’t look good. I’ve been using this skin for a few days now and can say that I’m happy with the results. The entire skin screams precision as the cutout matches up perfectly on all sides and even around the Nexus logo too. The back of the Nexus 6 is a little slick, so I’m also enjoying the added grip and feel thanks to the carbon fiber texture as I’m not really a case type of guy.

Congrats developers, sponsored apps come to +Google Play

Sponsored apps also known as advertisements, are coming to Google Play. They're done tastefully and are clearly indicated in your app search results. This minor change allows Google Play to continue to move forward in being a viable place for developers to flock and make a living while bringing in a little revenue for El Goog. It's a win, win here.

The Google+ mobile web app has been updated. The mobile web app now resembles the Android app, except the mobile web app has a nice slide out drawer, which is missing from the Android.

We also now have 3 different user experiences when using the web app on your desktop, mobile phone, or the Android/iOS app. I don't know about you, but this is annoying. We need a unified design. I thought Material Design was to allow a unified and seamless experience between various sized screens. Cmon Goog. Follow your own guidelines.

To the team behind the mobile web app: Great job. I really like the design.

Verizon Nexus 6 promo materials are a comin'

It should be just a few more weeks and Verizon customers will be able to finally purchase a Nexus 6 on contract (and easily activate Nexus 6's without a hassle). According to my dude in the know, you shouldn't have to wait much longer.

What I find most exciting about this, is the fact that Verizon isn't just supporting the phone on their network. They're actually going to market the hell out of it in typical flagship fashion. Stores will have tons of promo materials and posters. Sure, everyone loves to hate Verizon, but they're the largest carrier in the US and they can push a device over the top if they want to. More people need to know about the Nexus 6. That camera is absolutely amazing! This is good news.
