UPDATE: Now sold!
Any of my UK followers want a twin pack of new sealed Google WiFi units for £219 ONO including postage? Could possibly sent to other EU countries if you pay postage.

Selling below RRP as I got them as part of a larger bundle but don't need them as my apartment isn't that large.

Oh my. These are beautiful!
Made a quick comparison of Android's notification redesign from N to O.

Ongoing Notification: N
• Not visually distinguished
• Doesn't always appear at the top of the drawer
• Inconsistent customization.

Ongoing Notification: O
• Rich color pulled from the app
• Systemized typography and iconography
• Always appears at the top

+--+

Media Notification: N
• Feels generic
• Differs most from other templates, but looks the same

Media Notification: O
• Designed to showcase the album artwork
• Color extracted background and controls

+--+

People Notification: N
• One line snippet of the message is insufficient
• Reply from the drawer

People Notification: O
• Read more without expanding
• Will be topmost section in the drawer most of the time

+--+

Extra Notification: N
• Visually equal to any other notification
• Heavyweight presentation for lightweight content

Extra Notification: O
• Lightweight for users = low risk for developers
• Functionality remains (full color and actions on expansion)

+--+

You got to hand it to Google: the attention to detail and obsession over UI/UX is admiring. This is one area where Google continues to excel at over everyone else.

My US-import Google Home just started supporting UK English! Yes!!

I swear Gmail is the only truly good Google app left on Android. Google seems to have broken everything else with inconsistent UI and UX designs, apps which don't work on tablets, apps with duplicate functions, apps which are slow or buggy etc
