September was a busy month for Google, and we have prepared a brief collection of the most interesting products they have unveiled.
Google has announced new Android version called Android Marshmallow. This time around Google is not making a complete overhaul but it is rather building on its predecessor 5.0 Lollipop. Focus is on feature and performance enhancements and power optimization. It is rumored that standby time of the Nexus 9 tablet has been extended by up to two times over Android Lollipop`s. Preview of Android M is already available for developers with full release expected to come later this year.
NEXUS 5X AND 6P
Right now there are 4.000+ Android mobile devices available on the market and Google has announced two new Nexus phones, the 5X and the 6P. Both phones will run best on Android Marshmallow and feature 64-bit processor, 12.3 MP camera, USB Type C port and high display resolution screen for best possible experience while watching video content.
CHROMECAST AND CROMECAST AUDIO
The new Chromecast has an all new and fresh design with three different colors to choose from, and it is easier to plug into TVs with crowded ports. But the most important announcement was, that it supports the latest Wi-Fi standards and adapts more easily to changing Wi-Fi conditions in your home. As Google said, “High resolution videos with shorter buffer time”.
Chromecast app is being upgraded too. The new app has a universal search functionality to show recommended content that’s already Cast-enabled on any service. Now you can go to a single place to browse or search content from across apps you already use,” said Google.
Chromecast Audio is a smaller of the two devices that plugs into your speaker for streaming music through WiFi. It works just like Chromecast from anywhere in your home with your favorite devices, including Android, iOS, and laptops.
All Beenius Mobile Applications today already offer Chromecast support.
Pixel C is the first Android tablet built end-to-end by Google. The new tablet brings together the benefits of portability of a tablet and a full-size keyboard. The tablet and Bluetooth keyboard attach magnetically so it’s easy to switch between typing and using the touch screen. The connection looks really firm and is detected automatically. It comes with beautiful aluminum design, great display and USB Type-C port.
First year after the launch it is clear that Google is working really hard, making Wear to be viewed as a viable platform. They`ve presented many smaller updates that have nicely smooth out the platform, making it faster, easier and more fun to use. Library already contains more than 4.000 apps with new ones coming out each day.
We haven`t heard as much about Android TV as we would like to but there was one good news for its users. HBO Now is coming to Android. No more Apple’s exclusive access apparently.
