Hangouts Dialer

With a simple app update, Google has just fixed one of the biggest gripes with the Hangouts Dialer — it's now actually identifying itself to the system as a dialer app. Prior to today's update, you couldn't quite fully replace your normal phone app with Hangouts because if you ever needed to initiate a phone call from another app — like a restaurant in Google Maps or a phone number in a text message — it would always kick you out to the phone app, with no choice to choose Hangouts.

Santa Phil Day 3: Win a Nexus Player and game controller!

Nexus Player

The Nexus Player has a tough hill to climb. For one, it's tripling the price of the Chromecast while duplicating the functionality. But it also does a lot more. Namely, you get apps — full Android apps, tailored to the TV experience — on the big screen. It's still early in the Nexus Player's life, and we'll definitely see more of this experience built into TVs in 2015, and probably other boxes as well.

But I've been enjoying the hell out of the Nexus Player. Now it's time for one of you to do the same.
