AndroidNova.org proudly brings you a summary of what;s launched/covered at Google I/O conference on 15 may 2013.Hold a deep breath as Google Entertains you with their breathtaking updates.Lets start the summary from Google Play Game services.
Google Made the Games much more better
Any gaming platform has its own social network, and Google’s cannot be left behind. Your Play Games identity will be managed by—you guessed it—Google+, but that’ll bring a whole bunch of social features to the table. The new app includes matchmaking and mulitplayer game options, an achievement system, saves that sync between devices linked to your account, and leaderboards in both “global” and “friends only” flavors. Basically, everything you’d expect to find rolled into a console gaming experience, for this generation anyway.
Of course, these features will only apply to Play-powered games, which will be tagged with a little controller-shaped badge for your identification convenience. Google Play Games will be lauching to Froyo+ device today, via a Google services update.
Better Google Maps with great battery backup and awesomely accurate location service
Fused Location Provider is a new feature present in Google maps which will use all your phone’s sensors to find your location. Google’s claims that the location mode will use less than one percent of batter per hour when activated. However, we don’t know what battery capacity Google’s talking about, and also that it would be an awesome achievement.
Second best about maps is improved geofencing. This is a an extreme leap in the app current update. since it will let your phone know when you enter an area that it should turn on functions, or perform certain tasks, but Google didn’t say much more than that it’s working on it. It’s been a big need on Android for a while now, though, so it’s encouraging.
And lastly is a smart detection of activity, which means your accelerometer will know when you’re walking, running, biking, or driving. Nice feature for people interested in activites where enormous movement is involved.
Google Play Music Subscriptions
You can now buy a music subscription from Google.Google Play Music subscription launches in the US today. It costs $10 per month. Everybody gets a 30-day free trial, if you are early birdie then only 8$.
During today’s Google I/O keynote, Google introduced All Access, which it is better for music discovery than its competitors like spotify. At first, it seems like a simple on-demand-meets-radio service with the personalization options you would expect. It works on phones, tablets and web browsers.
From a design and UX perspective, the innovation comes from the degree to which it’s easy to switch between the hands-on and hands-off experiences. If you don’t know what you want to listen to you can just hit “Listen Now” and start listening to something like we do for FM Radios or internet Radios ,”hear whats being played on air”.
The best part of the offer is You can get to keep the awesome features that came with Google Music. They’re totally integrated. It’s on-demand music, radio, and online storage locker for your personal collection all in one place.that’s icing on the chocalate cake for us
Google has never tried a streaming music answer to services like Spotify and SoundCloud. Google has the infrastructure to make this sound service a success. We’ll have to wait and see which service comes out on top.
Recon Instrument’s Jet: Google Glass by a third party manufacturer
Three years ago Recon Instruments came out with one of the first goggles with a HUD. And today at I/O, Recon is debuting the Jet, a Google Glass-like set of shades that the company says is comparable to a tablet or smartphone (or Glass).
We don’t have much specifications about Jet other than a set of specs that include:
Wi-Fi, GPS, a dual-core processor, ANT+, Bluetooth, GPS, a HD camera and multiple sensors.Recon claims to have native apps built that allow users to browse the web, stream video, connect to Facebook, keep track of your activities and the like.
Whatever Google does it does that in style. Yeah that what it proved with the Google Layered Samsung Galaxy S4 ie S4 Google Edition. If you have been an regular and advanced android user then you might have noticed that bloatwares like Touchwiz ,Htc Sense slow you phone down. Google understood this and released it own version of the Samsung Galaxy S4. Yes. The samsung galaxy S4 is the new Nexus. The phone will be launched on June and will comprise of latest Android 4.2 Jellybean.
The new S4 with pure Google costs $649. It will be available on Google playstore from June. Being a Nexus now Samsung Galaxy s4 will receive all the android updates like the other Nexus Devices. Samsung galaxy s4 is the first phone withexynos octa ie 8core processor(though 4 cores cud run simultaneously) packed with a 2GB of ram and Full HD display. The main feature of this s4 is that it would bootloader unlocked and factory unlocked thus custom rom development will be awesome.
Google Play for Education
Google Play for Education sorts apps by grade level and subject matter, making it easy for teachers to find exactly what they want to teach to their student. It can also push content to any associated tablets—think books, lessons, and relevant YouTube videos—all at once, through the same mechanism.
But this feature requires every student to have a Google Account, which means they’re more likely to use Google’s other services and become entangled in Google’s cloud environment. It would be insanely wrong to run Play for Education without student accounts, and there’s nothing wrong with marketing your products to people freely. But it’s worth noting that the sooner you start leaning on Google for your apps and content, the harder it is to switch down the line if you’re so inclined.
Google Play for Education launches this fall , while app submissions will be accepted as soon as this summer.
Google Hangouts the new era of unified messaging
The long-speculated Babel all-in-one chat service has finally been revealed as Hangouts.
Google Talk, Hangouts, Voice, Google+ messenger: all of it is finally integrated into one monster of a unified chat service. Taking on the Google Hangouts name does make sense, too, since Google has been recently for trying to add as many users onto Google+ as they can.
Users finally get a synchronized chat across virtually every single one of your devices, with the ability to go back through chat history, delete messages, and grab files on every single one of them. You can hold group chats with any number of friends, and just like the Hangouts you know and love, you can also move straight into video chat from the text based or image based hangout.
What’s more, the new Hangout version will be hitting multiple platforms, coming on Android, Chrome, iOS and of Gmail.Sorry! blackberry users.
The BEAST….The BEAUTY….The PURE GOOGLE ANDROID SMARTPHONE is finally officially approaching India.
LG seems to be planning to launch it in Indian markets. The device is found available for pre-orders with official LG INDIA warranty at well known Indian e-commercial shopping site, FLIPKART! with a price tag of 25,990 INR which is a bit high as compared to its US price.
