Google Play Services 6.5 now rolling out to developers

6

Google has announced the release of Google Play Services 6.5 for developers. Because of the way Google has broken things out of Android and uses Play Services, this makes each and every update a pretty big deal.

The new Play Service 6.5 will allow developers to build better apps for phones and tablets on Gingerbread or higher — which is just about every Android device in use today. The updates to Google Services 6.5 offers more flexibility to developers to use and manage the APIs they need with Drive, Maps, Fit, and Wallet.

Multitasking on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Galaxy Note 4 multitasking

Samsung offers a wealth of multitasking features on the Note 4 — but there's a learning curve involved

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4, like many modern Android phones, has an enormous high-res display. Arguably, though, it's the Note's unique multitasking setup that helps you get the most out of that vast visual realestate. Features like windowed mode and multiwindow bring desktop-like capabilities to Samsung's latest oversized phone. However it's not always obvious where these features live, and there are a few different ways to interact with the Note 4's unique multitasking setup.

Hands-on with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G

It's big, it doesn't cost much and it's actually pretty good

Despite limited global availability, Xiaomi has enjoyed a meteoric rise to success and is now one of the world's biggest smartphone vendors. While in Europe and North America the company's presence is virtually zero, in its native China and now India, it's a very different story. In offering good hardware at extremely competitive prices, Xiaomi is definitely doing something right.

The Redmi Note is one of the newer smartphones made available, and is imminently India bound. Coming in two flavors, one with 4G and one without, the Redmi Note is a large smartphone with a small price. And you know what? It's actually really good.

Cyanogen pledges continued OnePlus One support (Update: Unless you have an Indian phone)

77

Update: ... and on Dec. 7 Cyanogen Inc. rolled things back again, saying that if you bought a OnePlus One in India, updates aren't happening. If you're using a global device in India, you should be fine.

Here's the full take:

Since we clarified our support for OTA firmware updates for OnePlus One global devices, we've received a number of inquiries regarding OnePlus One devices sold in India.

As we had pledged to our users, OnePlus One global devices will receive our OTA firmware updates. If a user in India purchased a OnePlus One global device in channels outside of India, they will receive our OTA firmware updates. However, this excludes OnePlus One regional devices sold directly in India. We are committed to our exclusive partnership in India with Micromax, which will be launching its first Cyanogen OS device under their new YU brand.
