Update 1: 2018/10/24 2:26pm PDT This one sure had us scratching our head when we first unearthed it, but only now is the picture properly coming in to focus. Google has confirmed that the Earlier this month, Google pushed up a Play Store listing for its new Search Suggestions app for Pixel phones, which powers — as you'd likely guess from the name — both the search functionality inside the Settings app and the suggestions which appear at the top. Now three more Pixel-specific apps have hit the Play Store: Pixel Tips, Connectivity Health Services, and Voice Action Services. Pixel Tips powers an animated guide that introduces you to your Pixel 3, Voice Action Services is connected in some imprecisely defined way to voice-based Assistant actions, and Connectivity Health Services does... something, probably. The first two apps (Pixel Tips and Connectivity Health Sevices) are exclusively compatible with the Pixel 3 so the app listings likely won't appear if you … [Read more...] about [Update: EU Assistant alternative] Google releases trio of new system apps to Play Store, including Pixel exclusives

Gingerbread users need not apply).

After the initial launch buzz, we haven't heard much about Ingress . The game is still going strong (though we gave up on it, because the innate repetition of a MMORPG got boring for us), and it has millions of players around the globe; but, Ingress is still in closed beta. There are Ingress events planned around Google I/O, which is making us wonder if a wider release of the game is imminent; and if so, what does that mean for the game that exists right now? If you don't know, Ingress is the first game to be released by Google (not counting Doodle games, of course). It was built in-house by Niantic Labs (the same guys who made Field Trip) and exists in two distinct parts. There is Project Niantic, which is the story side of the experience. There are documents, audio files, videos, and photos that have been released each day since this past November. The story is intricate with the pieces all coming together to tell a strange and mysterious story about a secret project at CERN, … [Read more...] about Ingress parties scheduled around Google I/O: what would it mean if the game goes live to all?
Buried under all the excitement around the Note 4 and Sony unveilings today come some great news for all Android owners. Nokia's Sean Fernback gave an interview for the Wall Street Journal, confirming that Samsung won't have exclusivity on its Android app version for long.I'm convinced people are looking for alternatives. Google Maps is a good solution for many, their maps work very well, but it has looked the same and done the same for a long time.In fact, he says, Nokia's mapping software will land in the form of an app for all Android and iOS device by the end of the year. If your heads are spinning at the moment, we don't blame you, as Nokia gave billions to acquire NAVTEQ a few years ago, and created arguably the best offline navigation solution for mobile devices, which until now was exclusive to Windows Phone devices. Wait, there is more, as the HERE Maps navigation suite will be coming free of charge, which would really throw a monkey wrench in the venerable Google and Apple … [Read more...] about Move over, Google Maps, Nokia’s free offline navigation coming to Android and iOS before year-end
Google has released standalone apps for its office suite: Google Docs (Word alternative), Google Sheets (Excel alternative), and Google Slides (PowerPoint alternative) arrive with offline viewing and editing baked in. There’s quite a history with Google’s office suite: the company first launched a unified Google Docs package, then rebranded it to Google Drive, mixing it up with full-on cloud storage functionality, and now, by releasing Docs, Sheets, and Slides, it distances them from Drive, leaving the latter appearing as a cloud file management box, similar to say, Dropbox.With the new Docs, Sheets, and Slides, Google brings more recognition to its office suiteThe three apps remain heavily integrated with Drive, of course, but graduating into standalone applications they will get more recognition. Simple fact is that not everyone was aware that Drive actually features a full-on office suite, and that could have been a force driving such a decision.Slightly confusing, … [Read more...] about Google releases standalone Docs and Sheets (Word and Excel alternatives) apps for Android and iOS
