Five months in, Android 6.0 Marshmallow is only on 2.3 percent of devices

Android 6.0 Marshmallow launched in early October 2015, a bit over five months ago, and yet it’s only installed on a mere 2.3% of Android devices that access the Google Play Store. The version with the largest installed base is the previous one, Lollipop, at 36.1%.

Meanwhile, iOS 9.x, which was released just two weeks before Android 6.0 in mid-September 2015, is installed on 77% of all iOS devices that accesses Apple’s App Store. Android enthusiasts, analysts, and bloggers have been talking about Android fragmentation for years now. But, as evidenced by the current market share for Android Marshmallow, Google does not seem too concerned about the ongoing fragmentation problems.

Let’s take a look at how bad it is by combining a few numbers. If you combine the installed base for the last two Android releases (Lollipop and Marshmallow), the total is 38.4% of all Android devices. If you combine Apple’s last two iOS releases (8.x and 9.x), it accounts for an installed base of 94% of all iOS devices. The Android version with the largest installed base is Lollipop, which was released in November 2014. However, if you go back one more version to KitKat, released in October 2013, and combine its installed base with Lollipop, you’ll find these two older versions of Android account for 70.4% of the platform’s installed base.

While this fragmentation is probably not perceived as a problem by the vast majority of casual users, it remains a serious consideration for Android developers. Would you, for example, want to expend a lot of time, energy, and money getting up to speed on the latest Android APIs if you know nearly all potential customers won’t be able to access those features?

It’s no hypothetical question, now that Google has announced a preview release of the next version of Android, currently referred to as Android N. That version adds multi-window (really a split screen like iOS 9 allows on iPad devices), direct reply notification, and bundled notifications, among other things. If history is any indication, Android N will still have very low adoption six to 12 months after release; developers will likely focus their efforts elsewhere as a result.

Android apps are coming to Chromebooks this year

The company has announced that users will be able to download and run the apps that can be used on Android phones and tablets on Chromebook laptops.

All Chromebooks will eventually support the Play Store but initially, only developers will be given access.

The Play Store will be compatible with the M53, ASUS Chromebook Flip, the Acer Chromebook R 11 and the Chromebook Pixel from June. More than 60 models will support the store and apps later this year.

“This means you’ll be able to download and use Android apps, so you can make a Skype call, work with Office files and be productive offline — or take a break with games like Minecraft, Hearthstone or Clash of Clans,” the company said in a blog post

The announcement is not completely unexpected. In April, eagle-eyed Reddit users spotted an option that would allow the apps to run on Google’s Chrome OS.

Google Android N Download and its Full Details

Hi Friends! Today We are here with a topic on Google Android N Download and its Full Details

What is Android N?

Here’s everything we know about the forthcoming Android N update, including all the new information from Google IO 2016.

Android N is Google’s next phone and tablet operating system update that’s been so thoroughly refined, the company is officially more than halfway through the English alphabet.

You can now download Android N Developer Preview form and test its new features that didn’t make the cut in November’s Android 6.0 Marshmallow launch alongside the Nexus 6Pand Nexus 5X.

You can name it  as the developers team are asking for  suggestions to name it and You can help them by giving suggestion regarding naming the Android N by clicking here.

The Features of Android N :

Multitasking

Android’s lack of split screen multitasking felt especially pressing last year with the underwhelming release of the productivity-focused Pixel C tablet, and now N is putting things right. The split screen feature works on phones, too, and is accessed by holding down the task-switching button. It’s pretty intuitive, and on a Nexus 6 is kind of like having two BlackBerry screens at once.

Google Android N Download and its Full Details

Apps don’t necessarily need to be updated to use this feature. Some, like Instagram, aren’t selectable at all yet, but others like Twitter and The New York Times load fine in the smaller format even though they flash up a “may not work” warning first.

The task-switching button has another trick in Android N, too: double-tap it to instantly switch to your most recently used app. Google calls it Quick Switch, but it’s basically Alt-Tab for Android.

Oh, and if all this hot multitasking ability has made you open just way too many apps? Now there’s a Clear All button so you can close everything at once.

Notifications

The notifications shade has been completely revamped in N. Things are much tighter visually, with a full-width design and smaller icons making better use of space. Notifications are more functional, too — you can now expand them twice successively to see more information and take action. There are also little buttons to expand each notification if you don’t feel like swiping.

Another neat feature is the ability to long-press on each notification to control how you’ll receive alerts from the app in future. Getting too many thirsty messages begging you to go back to that free-to-play game you abandoned weeks ago? Long-press the notification and you can choose whether to display them silently in the future or block them altogether.

Google Android N Download and its Full Details

And my favorite update to the notification shade so far is the way quick toggles are integrated. On Marshmallow, you had to drag down the shade and then swipe down a second time to access things like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggles, but N includes a row of five icons above your notifications. You’ll still need to swipe again to see the rest, but the icons are customizable so you can pick the ones you use the most.

Settings

The settings menu has also undergone a welcome revamp. The first thing you’ll notice is at the top, where there are now suggestions for things you may not have done with your phone yet, like set up email accounts or voice commands. Each option on the list also gives you a little slice of relevant information, which could save you some menu-diving — you can check your storage capacity, current Wi-Fi network, data usage, and so on right from the menu.

Another change sees persistent settings reflected in the list itself when activated — for example, turning on tethering or the new Data Saver feature will give you a hard-to-miss turquoise toggle right at the top of the list. This can be swiped away, just like a notification.

Virtual reality

Although there’s nothing really new in the current public beta, VR is a big piece of the Android N-puzzle. Google is launching an entire new Android-powered platform called Daydream that succeeds its Cardboard initiative. You’ll need a Daydream-certified phone with the right kind of display and sensors, and they’ll work with a new VR mode in Android to improve performance inside headsets.

Google Android N Download and its Full Details

 

About that headset — Google is only showing off a reference design right now, along with a simple wireless motion controller. Companies will be able to produce their own headsets that fit the Daydream standard, and Samsung, HTC, LG, Xiaomi, Huawei, ZTE, Asus, and Alcatel are all on board to make Daydream-compatible phones.

Google Android N Download and its Full Details

As for content, Google is working on VR-ready versions of its own apps like YouTube, Street View, and Photos, and it’s collaborating with partners like Netflix, Ubisoft, and Electronic Arts. The Daydream platform is set to launch this fall.

Keyboard themes!

Okay, so this might not be the biggest deal in the world, but there are now a ton of themes for the stock Google keyboard. You can choose various colors, add or remove the borders between keys, and even set a photo as a backdrop. It’s honestly kind of neat.

Performance

Google claims performance increases in various directions with just about every version of Android, and this one’s no different. N is adopting a new graphics API called Vulkan, which is also starting to see use in PC gaming and should help deliver more efficient visual performance on phones and tablets.

Android N also has a new JIT compiler, which Google says will improve battery life and result in apps that can be 50 percent smaller while installing 75 percent faster.

New emoji

Google is updating its set of emoji for Android N, giving its quirky blobs a more uniform appearance. The company is also proposing that the Unicode Consortium adopt 13 new emoji to better represent professional women in the universal character set.

Battery times (talk time, standby time and more) are subject to network and phone usage. A Standby time specification (“specification”) is an industry standard that is only intended to allow comparison of different mobile devices under the same circumstances. Power consumption in a standby state is strongly dependent on factors including but not limited to network, settings, location, movement, signal strength and mobile traffic. Comparisons of different mobile devices using such a specification can therefore only be done in a controlled laboratory environment. When using any mobile device in real life circumstances for which the mobile device is intended, the standby time could be considerably lower and will be strongly dependent on the factors mentioned above.

Moto G (Gen 4), Moto G4 Plus May Launch on June 9

The rumoured Motorola Moto G (Gen 4) smartphone and the Moto G4 Plus have leaked quite a few times recently via videos and images. Now it has been reported that at least one of them will finally see the light of the day as soon as June 9 this year.

Moto G (Gen 4), Moto G4 Plus May Launch on June 9

On Thursday during the launch of the Zuk Z2 Pro smartphone, Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing confirmed that Motorola will launch a smartphone on June 9, reports GizmoChina.

To recall, Zuk is Lenovo’s brand, while Lenovo completed its acquisition of Motorola from Google in late 2014. Yuanqing did not give any more details as to what the company will launch at the given date. However, with the increasing number of leaks and rumours for the Moto G 4th Gen. and the Moto G4 Plus, it is likely the company might launch one of them.

Earlier this week both the Moto G (Gen 4) prototype and the Moto G4 Plus leaked separately in a video and an image. The leaked image showing the white-coloured Moto G4 Plus shows a square-shaped fingerprint sensor placed as a home button, a speaker grille, a front-facing camera, and the rear camera with flash and autofocus sensors enclosed in a pill-shaped module and a dimple with the company logo below the camera.

The video published on YouTube showed the alleged Moto G (Gen 4) lacking the fingerprint sensor seen on the Moto G4 Plus. The black-coloured smartphone was compared with 2014 Moto X model and clearly seemed slightly bigger in size than any other Moto G handsets. The video also showed its Active Display technology, something that has been there in the Motorola handsets since quite a while.

Moto G (Gen 4), Moto G4 Plus May Launch on June 9

How to Track & Find Your Android Phone Any Time You Lose It

Hi Friends ,In present generation Phones have become a part of Our life and If You lost Your Phone.,let me tell You How to Track & Find Your Android Phone Any Time You Lose It  we recommend using Google’s own Android Device Manager. Here’s why.

What Is Android Device Manager?

It wasn’t all that long ago when Lost and Founds were our only hope whenever we would misplace our mobile devices. Locator apps existed back then but were  primitive and unreliable, and if your device never turned up, you’d have to write it off as a loss and hope that your insurance would cover it to a useful degree.

But in August 2013, Google rolled out a new feature for all Android devices version 2.3 and above called Android Device Manager, which should be enabled by default on all new devices, but if you aren’t sure then you can follow these instructions to check:

How to Track & Find Your Android Any Time You Lose It

  • Navigate to Settings.
  • Find the Permissions section and tap Security.
  • Scroll down and tap Device Administrators.
  • Tap the checkmark to enable Android Device Manager.
  • Confirm the permissions popup to complete activation.

If that doesn’t work for you, there’s a second way to enable this feature:

How to Track & Find Your Android Any Time You Lose It

  • Launch the Google Settings app.
  • Scroll down and tap Security (you may not need this step).
  • Under Android Device Manager, enable both checkmarks
 ILet’s take a look at what these features actually do and how you can make use of them once Android Device Manager is ready.

How to Use Android Device Manager

The very first step is to visit and bookmark the Android Device Manager dashboard. It will ask you to log into your Google account if you aren’t already. Once in, you’ll see a list all of the devices connected to that account.

How to Track & Find Your Android Any Time You Lose It

 

For each listed device, you’ll see the last known location, the last time it was detected as being online, and four actions you can take:

Locate Device, at the top right, which tries to find your device on demand.

Ring, which forces your device to ring at max volume for 5 minutes. This will work even if your device is set to silent or vibrate! A very handy feature considering that GPS locations are little more than rough approximations.

Lock, which prompts you for a password, then immediately locks the device with that password — even if someone is currently using it. The lock screen is more secure than most third-party lockers, so this feature is especially useful.

Erase, which is basically a self-destruct button. It forces a factory reset on the device, erasing all apps, music, photos, and settings. And if the device isn’t available when you issue the command, it will happen the next time it comes online.

Obviously, the nuclear option should only be considered as a last resort when you’re positive that retrieving your device is no longer possible. As long as you still have a hope of finding it, the lock function will suffice as adequate protection.

The other caveat is that you should always back up your Android data. That way, when you do go through with the nuclear option, you can still salvage whatever was backed up. (Ideally, that would be everything.)

How to Track & Find Your Android Any Time You Lose It

 

One alternative to the Web dashboard is to install the Android Device Manager app, which is freely available on the Play Store. It’s a lightweight app (clocking in at less than 2 MB). You’ll need to grant it permission to use your location data (obviously), and you’ll have to log into your Google account (just like with the web dashboard).

The two methods are essentially the same, so it’s up to you which one you decide to use.

Third-Party App Alternatives

The two that I most recommend are Lookout and Prey.

LookOut :

How to Track & Find Your Android Any Time You Lose It

Lookout  provides a wide range of security features beyond just anti-theft. The free version keeps you safe from malware and viruses, locates your device, allows for a remote alarm, automatically saves device location when the battery gets low, and saves a backup of your contacts so you can download them elsewhere.

The premium version ($3 per month) is where things get interesting. Lookout will snap a photo when it thinks someone is tampering with your device and email it to you. It also blocks suspicious URLs, limits the information that apps can access, and allows you to remotely lock, self-destruct, or post messages to your device.

 Pery :
How to Track & Find Your Android Any Time You Lose It

Prey is a cross-platform solution that acts as an anti-theft measure for smartphones, tablets, and laptops. Any device with Prey installed will be monitored in case it ever goes missing, and it works on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, and iOS.

Free features include remote locating, locking, and wiping for up to 3 devices at a time. Upgrading to a paid account (starting at $5 per month) increases the number of simultaneous devices and introduces a few other features like report generation, Active Mode, and SSL encryption.

Regardless of whether you go with Android Device Manager or a third-party solution, the best defense is to practice good security habits — but no one is flawless, which is why these fallback measures exist.

Now lets take a look at ways to recover a lost or stolen android phone.

2 Easy Ways to Recover A Lost or Stolen Android Phone

Missing Phone Level 1:  No Big Deal, I Know It’s Around Here Somewhere

How to Track & Find Your Android Any Time You Lose It This method should be used if you’ve simply misplaced your phone somewhere within earshot, like if it’s under a couch or in the pocket of a jacket.

How to Track & Find Your Android Any Time You Lose It

With the help of Where’s My Droid application, you can easily find your phone (even if it’s on vibrate or silent mode) by texting it a special code. When your phone receives the code, it will play an alert at maximum volume until you discover the missing phone.

Where’s My Droid also has the ability to reply to you with your phone’s GPS location and a link to it on Google Maps

Step 1: Download and install the free Where’s My Droid application from the Android Market.

Step 2: You’ll want to change the default “secret message” that activates your phone’s alarm since anybody could trigger it if they knew the default setting.

Open Where’s My Droid in the app drawer and change both the Attention word and Attention word GPS.

How to Track & Find Your Android Any Time You Lose It

 Be sure to note that for the GPS feature to work, you must have GPS enabled on the phone.

Step 3: When you can’t find your phone, simply send a text message to your phone from another phone with the secret message you set in Step 2.  Your phone will immediately play an alert at maximum volume so you can easily find your lost Android phone.

Missing Phone Level 2: It’s Really Lost (or Stolen)

Missing Phone It’s Really Lost (or Stolen)

This method should be used if you’ve left your phone in a public area, or somewhere out of earshot. This is especially useful if you left your phone at a bar, restaurant, taxi, or at a friend’s place – somewhere that a person might be holding it for you to pick up.

With the Mobile Defense application (which Ryan previously covered), you can remotely track your phone using its GPS from any browser. You can also perform advanced features like remote lock, backup, or completely wipe your phone to protect your privacy.

How to Track & Find Your Android Any Time You Lose It

Step 1: Download and install the free Mobile Defense application from the Android Market.

You will need to complete a brief registration process after installing Mobile Defense to activate it. Once Mobile Defense has been installed, it will run silently in the background so nobody will ever know it is installed.

Step 2: In the event that you lose your phone, head to the Mobile Defense online dashboard and log in with your account. Click the Map tab to open the remote controls.

On the right side of the screen, you will see any phones you have registered with Mobile Defense. Click Connect to Phone to activate the Mobile Defense software.

How to Track & Find Your Android Any Time You Lose It

When a connection has been established, you will see your phone’s location embedded in a Google Map. With this menu, you can view details about your phone and issue commands. Since this is based on Google Maps, you can view traditional maps, satellite imagery, or a hybrid of the two.

How to Track & Find Your Android Any Time You Lose It

The Details menu contains everything you need to know about your phone’s location, including latitude, longitude, and speed. You can also monitor the phone’s connection status and battery level.

How to Track & Find Your Android Any Time You Lose It

Going back to the main Mobile Defense map, you can click the Alert button to send a message to the phone. If you enable the Sound option, your phone will play an incredibly loud car alarm which will definitely get the attention of whoever has it. The Sound feature could also be useful if you’re physically near the phone but in a large crowd.

The Require Pin feature keeps your message on the screen until a special code is entered.
