Troubleshooting  - 
 
Anyone else have issues with mic quality? Callers can't hear me well and voice control works intermittently.

I don't have mic issues but since the March update my volume controls don't work when I'm listening to YouTube Red with screen off. Very inconvenient

So, I tried the developer preview for android N on my 6P today and I liked it. Notification shade is my favourite improvement so far, buy it's early days and I didn't want mess up my daily driver, so I reverted back to M. The reversion gives the option to install as new, so I thought I wonder how i would get by using just Google apps and Stock android.
I immediately encountered some issues. Two services I use a lot are Pocketcasts for podcasts and Feedly for RSS/newsfeed. As Google no longer offers apps for these purposes (RIP Reader and Listen) I feel justified in using them.
I don't like the stock wallpaper so that will have to go, and most of the widgets are boring, ugly or useless. I particularly don't like the weather widget, Google Now cards are nicer and more informative.
I recently moved over to Play Music from Spotify and am enjoying that recently, so okay in the music dept.
I'm on an Inbox push at the moment, trying to tame that beast is proving fun.
Overall I feel quite optimistic, and coincidentally hoping to reap battery life benefits from having less apps. We'll see....

Do any of you use daydream, what do you think of it? I've got it set to news and weather, but only showing top headlines. Should it rotate through stories/interests?

Who would choose the dark side?
Awaken the Force within you. Choose a side and your Google apps will follow your path.

It's a bit snide of Windows Live Blog to jump on the new 'Google are Evil' privacy non story, especially then to tout Facebook integration as one of the benefits (have you seen what they do with your data!?) also some of these 'can't do that in GMail' reasons are plain wrong.
Still, I was (and still am) thinking of making the move, Hotmail keeps getting better and SkyDrive/Office 365 is starting to shine.

How can I control what g+ shows me in trending, all I'm getting at the moment is animals attacking each other. I don't want that.
