The Android One train stops in Africa!
We’re excited to announce the debut of Android One in Egypt, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Morocco and Nigeria . This means many more people in Africa will now be able to access high quality and affordable smartphones supported by us. 

The software on Android One devices automatically updates to the latest version of Android and will get the Android M release after release. The goal is to provide a consistent and uncompromising smartphone experience, for everyone. 

Find out more on today’s launch here- http://goo.gl/ilcMFt

PLAYING POKER: When or if you've ever played Poker you know you have to "ANTE UP" (to put money on the table) in order to get in the game. You wouldn't play with someone that didn't "ANTE UP". In Las Vegas you need to first bet some money before you can play the slots or any of the games. 
Now, years ago when our Great Nation was formed the only people that could vote were the land owners.  Our wise Forefathers knew the colonist's would fight for this Nation because they had a stake and an allegiance to it.   
Our Father God operates like this. If you make the first move and openly confess you're a sinner and you believe in Jesus Christ then you're in the Family of God, you're part of the Family and you r home is in Heaven.  Paul

Google, in collaboration with  #DigitalMatatus, has for the first time in Kenya  launched #GoogleTransitKE - a feature on maps.google.co.ke, which helps people plan public transport trips quickly and easily - in an effort to provide Kenyans, out-of-town visitors and tourists get instant access to useful information on buses and matatus within their respective areas as well as public transit directions  in a central place. The new Google Maps  feature, will enable anyone searching for directions within Nairobi to have the option of planning their trips around the capital as public transportation routes will be made available as alternatives to driving and walking directions.  
Check out Nairobi transit info on  maps.google.co.ke

Getting people online in Africa
Introduction
Mission

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful.

Google Sub Saharan Africa (SSA)

The Internet is a powerful source of information. Google's strategy in Africa is to get more users online by developing an accessible, relevant and sustainable internet ecosystem.
  • Reducing access as a barrier to all potential users
  • Making the Internet relevant and useful to Africans
  • Helping strengthen an Internet ecosystem in Africa that is vibrant, and sustainable and self-sufficient in the long-term
Our Google+ Page

The Google Africa team will be sharing interesting information about our events, product launches and other activities in the region.  We may from time to time post information from other places which we think you will find interesting and useful.

We hope that you'll find the content and interactions here fun, engaging, interesting and most importantly, valuable.  

We want your feedback so don't be shy to tell us what you think and how we can do better.

Look out for open hangouts with Googlers on the team.
