Android |OT8| ConFuchsia say beta is better

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.
 
Which is how it should be. I want to live in this future.
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?

working on ways to get more user data lol

the blobs were kinda cute but too out of place in the emoji-verse so I'm not sad to see them go.
 
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.
 
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.
Lead in what way....I'm still not seeing an apple lead anywhere.
 
all apple is doing for the most part is catch up to android lol. Seems like jesus phone will get capacitive nav buttons lol.

Still trying to figure out what features ios has that android is missing besides imessage and faster browser.

heck can ios load webm's yet?

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

Today's Google Assistant keynote was amazing. I wonder what 2012 will bring.
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.
