Now any developer can make Instant Apps for Android


20 May, 2017

Google has now officially added Bluetooth support to their Google Home speakers, allowing for users to connect their phones to the speaker directly for playing music and also taking calls, through any Android or iOS device.

We're enabling IT managers to enforce app scanning and blocking of potentially harmful apps device-wide by policy and making it backward compatible for earlier versions of Android. Android Go phones will also come with well-optimised and lighter versions of key Google services so that the overall experience on a budget phone with low-end hardware is good.

That being said, Google will be looking to target Indian handset manufacturers like Micromax, Lava, and Karbonn to develop smartphones with Android GO. The second question is - why would a developer go the lengths of creating additional versions of their application, instead of what they ought to do, which is slim down their existing application? It's packed with new features: notification dots on app icons, Chrome autofill across apps, smart text selection and potentially better battery life through background process and memory management, for instance. Hoffman announced that Assistant will now be able to understand typing and over the next few months you'll see some more nifty Assistant features. With the new feature Suggested Sharing, Google Photos will not only remind you to share- it will automatically select the right photos and even suggest who you should send them based on who was in the photos. He said if his wife would have said the same thing, Google Home would have called Rishi Chandra's mother-in-law. Suppose you don't want your family members to see all the photos, you can only make some selected photos visible which you want that your family members should view.

Google Play Protect also scans apps for threats and risks.

And Google knows just how important it is to keep the Play Store up and running smoothly all the time. The feature is already available. As emojis become an increasingly common tool for sharing emotions, the difference between Google blobs and other emoji platforms was causing communications breakdowns for users.
