They currently have no direction. They are just throwing shit around now. Some of it good. Some of it bad.

PiP mode doesn't seem to work yet and the custom lock screen apps also don't work.

New ambient display though just a small update though.

I think beta 3 for N was stable. Will wait.

I am fully expecting all mobile communication to be done by emojis in the future.

Only real bug I've found on the Pixel C O beta so far is that when I get a dialogue box in Chrome, like pressing the Inesrt Image button on a GAF post, it pops up a quick view of a tab I've already closed.

Holy cow, just restarted the Pixel XL to see if the boot times are better. What thell did they do in Nougat? I've never seen a phone booting up this fast o_O
Even my friends S8 took 2 secs longer.
My Pixel went from 35 to 15 sec boot up.

Well, times don't matter as I'm rebooting my phone once a month for the update, but nice improvement.

That was a pretty shitty conference. Not much for Android at all tbh. Still no meaningful work on backup. No battery diagnosis for users, no theme engine expansion, no one-hand use shrink service, no notification mirroring etc etc.

Google uncouple updating emoji from the system but don't understand that there are lots of parts of the OS that need the same.

Glad they sorted the Daydream/S8 mess though. And the old emoji sucked, so I'm not sorry to see them go.

Depends what country they're in. In the UK, it launched yesterday and has only 3 banks supporting it and almost every store has NFC payments now. I use Android Pay for almost every purchase I make now. Nowhere uses mag-readers except for a huge backup.

Exactly. Practically everywhere takes contactless payments these days, so by extension Android Pay.

It's one of the main reasons I can't wait to have my 5x back once it's repaired.

i want to live in this future also, but these American companies keep fucking up.

almost two years later and half of the places i go to still have swipe terminals and many of the ones with chips have NFC disabled.

it seems like only fast food places really care. you would think it would be the opposite since who CC scams a 20 piece nuggets?

This IO was fantastic. I'm not disappointed because I expected nothing. It also demonstrates Google isn't focused on these things right now. That means they're working on something else. Great news. Perhaps we'll get a taste during Pixel 2?

So big android o changes in beta.

Pixel now boots up at the speed as any other android device.

Picture in picture for YouTube but only red. S8 can already do this for any youtube.

Auto fill passwords from your chrome save passwords in apps is nice.

Should they really be encouraging that feature? I thought the database protection on Chrome saved passwords was almost non-existent at least on desktop, not sure on mobile.

the blobs were kinda cute but too out of place in the emoji-verse so I'm not sad to see them go.

Ha probably. Frankly, this IO just reinforced my recent decision to switch to iOS. It's Apple time now and I'll jump back to Android if Google regains the lead. Still haven't turned on iMessage or went fully iCloud.

Some interesting stuff. I don't really understand the enthusiasm for kotlin. I would have thought a better idea would be native support for a google language. Or hell anything but another java connected language. Even swift would be better.

Like the new AndroidTV home screen. Reminds me a lot of the AndroidTV YouTube interface.

The newhome stuff is looking nice.

Installed the O beta on my 5x. Seems to be running ok so far.

as much as i liked the blobs this is a necessary change for the bigger crowd. less confusion. and tbh they don't look too bad, better than iOS at least

The voice calling feature made me sad in that it will end up US only probably forever like Google Voice.

Otherwise though I'm pretty happy. Probaby will buy a second home when it releases in Australia.
