Announcing updates to Google’s Internet of Things platform: Android Things and Weave

Today we are announcing a full range of solutions to make it easier to build secure smart devices and get them connected. We are releasing a Developer Preview of Android Things, an operating system for connected devices that has the support and scale of existing Android developer infrastructure. You can now develop IoT software using Android Studio and the Android SDK. We are also updating the Weave platform to provide an easy way to add cloud connectivity and management to devices, and enable access to Google services like the Google Assistant and many more over time.

Learn more about Google’s IoT platform from our blog post at https://goo.gl/eENGtu, and join our new Google+ community at https://g.co/iotdev.

Tip: Try slowing down the animations on your phone!

I'm working on some animations and accidentally left my phone on "animator duration scale" 5x over the weekend. I was about to turn it off but decided to keep it on as an exercise in zen and to observe movement. I always perceived that my phone moved, but I've been surprised how detailed many system animations are! My favorites so far are the lock screen in pattern mode, everything in the Search app, and this Hangouts FAB animation.

* You can see a drawing artifact if you look closely -- not sure if it is just on N!

In this codelab, you'll learn about ConstraintLayout—a new type of layout available in the Android Support repository built on top of a flexible constraint system. By the end of this codelab, you'll be able to play with the layout editor in Android Studio and build a relatively complex layout.

In addition, we are releasing a number of enhancements including updates to the Complications API, launching the new WearableRecyclerView to better take advantage of circular displays when displaying vertical lists, inline actions for notifications, Smart Reply as well as fixes for a number of bugs you helped us identify (theatre mode anyone?). Let us know what you think and please send us your feedbacks!

I've barely used (with success) Not On Tap either to be honest, but I'm hoping Assistant will be a cool addition, and if it becomes too intrusive I imagine you can reduce the noise somehow.

Hey all,
Having many read articles and implemented myself various different application structures for use with Dagger I'm curious about the preferred implementation. In particular regarding sub-scoping components for different features, and component persistence.

Do most people prefer to go for the application/activity scopes or for feature based? and where to store the component if not using the application/activity style?

This is only rumour, but the idea has started gaining some traction, I'm not really sure what Google would want to obtain by doing this. The Nexus line is already a very strong brand and the hardware manufacturers generally build very reliable handsets.
Yet another "non-Nexus Google smartphone" rumor misses the point.

So now we have SMS Messenger, Hangouts, Allo and Duo, Google seem to be continuining their trend of application duplicity.

Quite possibly the best hotel I've had the pleasure at staying in, the staff are wonderfully attentive, and pleasant, the rooms were clean and topped up. The staff were propably the nicest people I've ever actually met, highly recommended.

We came here on a Sunday afternoon, overall a nice place, the staff I found to be friendly although a little impersonal, very quickly attentive. Personally I liked the music, mostly 90s pop/dance. I had a Kennedy burger, whilst not very seasoned was still quite tasteful and enjoyable. Not a fantastic beer selection buy I would say the drinks and atmosphere make up for that.

Absolutely outstanding staff here, great drinks and great atmosphere, the only downside is that it can get a bit crowded on the weekend. Smoking indoors and often have free popcorn for available.

One of my favourite bouldering halls, partnered with südbloc and many other bouldering halls around Berlin. Offering drinks and home made snacks very well welcomed after an intensive session of climbing.

Not one of my most preferred places despite it being quite popular with the "in" crowd. Toilets are often non functioning and they offer no drinks on tap. Typically overcrowded and uncomfortable.
