Pro tip: enable App Indexing API debug output with: adb shell setprop log.tag.AppIndexApi VERBOSE so you can inspect it with adb logcat -v time -s AppIndexApi:V

not that I know of +Jacek Modrakowski but I'll ask. Also note that we're making it easier for apps to publish deep links and now support using the API - https://developers.google.com/app-indexing/android/publish

25% of installed apps are never used (source: https://goo.gl/DobWiy) . Implementing App Indexing can help: Cookpad, a Japanese recipe app, has increased mobile app active users by ~15%.

App Indexing drives growth for Daily Mail / MailOnline, Cookpad, and Tabelog

Driving engagement with your app can be tough. The average app user has 36 apps installed, but ¾ are used less than daily and ¼ are never used at all. Luckily, Google is here to help with App Indexing, which helps you get your app discovered in Google Search, for free.

Cookpad, a Japanese recipe app, has increased mobile app active users by ~15%, while Tabelog, a Japanese restaurant reviews app, increased restaurant pageviews in their app by 9.6%. Daily Mail has gotten a 22.2% boost in Search impressions for their app users. To read these stories and others, visit https://goo.gl/alIjWB.

Great campaign! And great to see +Julia Ferraioli​ too.

The 100 days of Google Dev are in full swing so I thought I'd highlight a few of my favorite videos you may have missed. The list is obviously biased and highly subjective, but you already knew that. Over the past several quarters our Search team at Google has been busy adding capabilities that ...

Add people metadata to notifications to influence notification ranking and priority mode
Pro-tip by +Ian Lake

Android notifications always try to order notifications by importance. For a long time this was determined only by the notification’s priority and timestamp. With Android 5.0, a number of new metadata fields were added that influence ranking decisions. One of the most important of those is the option to associate people with the notification, via addPerson()
(http://goo.gl/LQw8J0)

addPerson() takes a URI in one of three forms:
- a CONTENT_LOOKUP_URI (http://goo.gl/2xA4ph) or the “permanent” link to an individual contact already in the user’s Contacts content provider
- a tel: schema for phone numbers, which will use ContactsContract.PhoneLookup (http://goo.gl/K6C36e) to find the associated user
- a mailto: schema for email addresses

This search results in one of three outcomes for each notification: no match found, a match found, or a starred contact found. Notifications from starred contacts are deemed the most important, while any match is deemed a higher priority than no contact at all. This means that adding people information may break a tie between similar notifications, favoring the notification that includes people in the user’s contacts.

If you’ve used priority mode to filter out notifications to only the essential, you may have noticed that one of the options there is to only receive calls or messages from starred contacts - this uses the same people metadata to determine whether a notification should interrupt a user. Adding this information can be key to ensuring that user’s expectations in priority mode are honored.

You don’t need to build your own contacts provider (http://goo.gl/4lwvU4) or even have the Contacts permission to take advantage of addPerson() - adding what information you have in the form of email addresses or phone numbers can be enough to improve the user’s notification experience, leveraging the contacts they already have on their device.

Get the Do’s and Don’ts for Notifications from Game Developer Seriously

Notifications on Android let you send timely, relevant, and actionable information to your users' devices. When used correctly, notifications can increase the value of your app or game and drive ongoing engagement.

/via +Nagesh Susarla +Ido Green 
This post is all about WeChat, but it's also about more than just WeChat. While seemingly just a messaging app, WeChat is actually more of a portal, a platform, and even a mobile operating system depending on how you look at it. Much has been written about WeChat in the context of messaging app ...

A nice new use case for voice actions and messaging apps. If you have an Android app in the Play Store and would like to voice-enable it, check out https://g.co/VoiceActions
