Upgraded to #windows10  on one of my machines today. Chrome, Google, etc seem to be working fine. Also the Windows Store seems to be filled with extremely helpful apps for almost any possible query!

It’s safe to say that as a consumer product, Google Glass wasn’t quite ready for masses. That’s not to say it didn’t excel in some fields, the business sector for example (healthcare, manufacturing, and energy) where Glass was the perfect fit for busy folks on-the-go.

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.

If you use Google Cloud Messaging (GCM), please note that ClientLogin has now been shut down (https://goo.gl/SElINf). This is a followup post from an advance notice we sent out in March. ClientLogin was officially deprecated (http://goo.gl/KGbhfG) on April 20, 2012, and was shut down on April 20, 2015 (http://goo.gl/wrT5Jz). Since then, only GCM users have been able to use this service, but that is also ending now.

We understand how important it is for you to connect with your users’ Android devices, so if your server is using ClientLogin to authenticate itself and your app is currently registering with GCM without using Sender ID, you will have to follow these steps:

1. Update the app and register with Sender ID. The app on the device will receive a new registration token. See Getting Started for the respective platforms on how to obtain a Sender ID:
Chrome: https://goo.gl/LaQYmm
Android: https://goo.gl/oQE6yj
iOS: https://goo.gl/iMw6U4

2. Once your server has received the new registration token, the server can stop authenticating itself using ClientLogin when trying to send GCM messages to the app on the device. You can find instructions on how to send GCM push messages without ClientLogin here for HTTP (https://goo.gl/635Xkn) and here for XMPP (https://goo.gl/Xj47TC).

tl;dr: Facebook moved to FlatBuffers in its Android app.The results:
* Reducing story load time from disk cache from 35ms to 4ms (per story)
* Transient memory allocations are reduced by 75 percent,
* Cold start time is improved by 10-15 percent.
* Storage size reduced by 15 percent.

cc +Colt McAnlis 
In last six months, we have transitioned most of Facebook on Android to use FlatBuffers as the storage format.

Great new office on Route 1! Their new office has a lot more space and it is super comfortable and modern. The dental chairs have back massagers built in. They also have big screen TVs for viewing your x-rays and helping explain things. The staff is incredibly courteous. I have been a patient for years and highly recommend their practice!
