[Update: Third-party support coming] Google limits Pixel 3 wireless charging rate to standard 5W for third-party charging pads

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018

We already knew that Google's Assistant UI would only work on the Pixel Stand. This decision by Google, while annoying, is understandable. Less understandable is the recent discovery that the Pixel 3 and 3 XL will only wirelessly charge at 10W on the Pixel Stand, with all third-party wireless chargers limited to the much slower 5W.

Less understandable is the recent discovery that the Pixel 3 and 3 XL will only wirelessly charge at 10W on the Pixel Stand, with all third-party wireless chargers limited to the much slower 5W.

A reader recently purchased a 10W Anker wireless charger to wirelessly fast charge his Pixel 3 with, only to discover that the phone was only getting a maximum of 500mA via the charging app Ampere.

BeyondPod has been removed from Android Auto, but a fix is in the works

Saturday, August 11th, 2018

In an interesting twist, BeyondPod, a podcast manager that has been around since seemingly the beginning of Android, has been removed from Android Auto. This isn't entirely surprising - prior to this April, it hadn't had a public update in two years, and people had been complaining about the huge amount of bugs.

BeyondPod was once one of the greatest podcast managers out for Android, and it still has its fans.

[Update: Maybe not] The Pixel 3 will only have gesture navigation, with no option for standard nav buttons

Tuesday, August 7th, 2018

As we all know by now, Google's implementation of gesture navigation is pretty lackluster. Given that it still takes up the same amount of space as the regular nav bar, it doesn't have any real benefits and just makes things confusing.

This is Google’s (rather boring) statue for Android 9 Pie

Tuesday, August 7th, 2018

Android 9 Pie was officially released earlier today, but there was one thing missing from the announcement: the statue. You see, Google creates a statue to put on display at its Mountain View campus for each new Android dessert version. Lately, the statues had been getting pretty stale, though the Oreo one showed some improvement. The statue for Android 9 Pie, however, marks the return to boring bugdroids.

The statue, which was unveiled at 3:14pm PT, only consists of the bugdroid waving with a pie to its left and a slice of pie to his right.

The Pixel 3 will only have gesture navigation, with no option for standard nav buttons

Monday, August 6th, 2018

As we all know by now, Google's implementation of gesture navigation is pretty lackluster. Given that it still takes up the same amount of space as the regular nav bar, it doesn't have any real benefits and just makes things confusing. You'll probably be disappointed to hear that the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will ship with gesture navigation, and there won't be an option to use the standard three-button layout that's been used for years.

[Update: Google responds] Google still hasn’t fixed the Pixel 2’s 8-month-old panorama issue, so someone made a workaround (root required)

Friday, July 13th, 2018

As we all know, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL use the same camera hardware. But while the Pixel 2 XL hasn't had any major camera issues (at least recently), the Pixel 2 has been having problems with its infinity focus point essentially since launch, leading to blurry panoramas.

As we all know, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL use the same camera hardware. But while the Pixel 2 XL hasn't had any major camera issues (at least recently), the Pixel 2 has been having problems with its infinity focus point essentially since launch, leading to blurry panoramas. It's been eight months since the issue was first reported, but because Google still hasn't fixed it, an owner decided to take things into his own hands.

YouTube TV goes ded in the middle of fancy soccer game

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

Yes, you read that right: YouTube TV has gone down amidst a major sports game yet again. This last happened during Game 2 of the NBA's Eastern Conference Finals, and it seems like Google's streaming service just isn't built to handle all of the World Cup fans either.

You'd think that Google would try to strengthen its service before such a big game, but apparently not.
