Android Auto Wireless is now enabled for Nexus and Pixel devices

Friday, April 13th, 2018

Android Auto's Wireless mode was rumored for months before we got official confirmation of it. JVC and Kenwood introduced a total of 7 Auto head units with Wi-Fi connectivity as an option at this year's CES, but until now even if you just got one of these new units, you couldn't use the mode as your phone wasn't ready for that. Now Google has flipped the switch: wireless mode for Android Auto is enabled on Nexus and Pixel devices.

Foodmoji and Text AR Stickers get their own Play Store listing [APK Download]

Thursday, April 12th, 2018

Google's AR Stickers began rolling out in December of 2017 to Pixel devices. At the time, users had 5 sticker packs to choose from when adding imaginary things on top of their real camera shots: Star Wars, Stranger Things, food, blocks, and text. Blocks were separated from the main app in February (Winter Sports were added then) and now food and text are seeing the same fate. The latest v1.2 update to the AR Stickers app shaves off about 28.5MB from the file by removing the two packs, which can now be downloaded separately.

The 2016 Pixel phones are no longer available on the Google Store

Tuesday, April 10th, 2018

Google changed tactics in 2016 with the launch of the Pixel and Pixel XL. The Nexus brand was gone, and the phones were more expensive. Still, the Pixel turned out to be a fantastic phone. Google kept them around on the Google Store even after the Pixel 2 launched, but now that's over. The first-gen Pixels are gone.

The landing page URL for the 2016 Pixels now redirects to the phone category on the store, and that page includes just two links: the Pixel 2 and accessories for the Pixel 2.

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

Whether you're selling phones or powering the platforms behind them, there's little that's more exciting for a company seeking out growth opportunities than a rapidly expanding market. As other markets around the globe see slumping projections or sales threatening to plateau, India's doing gangbusters, and last year sales of smartphones were up 14 percent. This growth hasn't gone unnoticed, and today we're checking out some signs of Google's increasing interest in India, including rumors of a possible new Pixel phone targeting India and other “price-sensitive” markets.
