Adoptable Storage Devices!

The M Preview released earlier today has a powerful new feature that allows you to "adopt" an external storage device (like an SD card or USB drive), enabling users to move both app code (APKs) and private app data to that device.  When a storage device is adopted, the platform wraps it in a layer of encryption and formats it similar to internal storage.  (In contrast, the original Apps-on-SD feature launched back in Froyo could only move app code, not private app data.)

Also, to help users free up internal storage space, they can choose to migrate their "primary shared storage" (living at /sdcard) to any adopted device.

If you flash the preview build onto a phone/tablet, you can enable the adoption feature for testing with USB OTG devices by using the command described here:

http://developer.android.com/preview/behavior-changes.html#behavior-adoptable-storage

Normally only storage devices in long-term stable locations (like an internal SD card slot inside a phone/tablet, or a USB drive attached to a TV) are supported for adoption.

Along with all of this work, the platform now has much better support for USB OTG storage devices (think USB flash drives).  When a new device is inserted, a notification appears offering to "browse" that device along with simple options to manage/copy contents.

Please kick the tires and file bugs!  :)  #io15 #android

Did I just get a new version of wear? 5.1.1
it seems that the watch notifications are tied to the notifications settings on your phone now. This is terrible. I can't silence my phone without silence my watch now.

Well, in the Android Wear app you can set it up to automatically silence your phone when a Wear watch is connected. So you get the same thing you want I guess. I dislike the Lollipop volume controls. Without a watch you can not silence your phone without ignoring. You can only set it to vibrate, this bothers me less since I have a Wear watch though.

We just updated our Espresso Cheat Sheet to 2.1[0][1]. In this version we added the new entry points intended(Matcher)/intending(Matcher) and Matchers for Espresso-Intents. We also finally got around to add onData() to the cheatsheet, enjoy!

First impressions of the Pebble Time.
An interesting take on a smartwatch, hindered by an attempt to fit in with the flashier and better designed interfaces of Android Wear and Apple Watch.

Wasted space and animations everywhere, ultimately dramatically slowing down how you use the device. Notifications have up to 50% less text visible compared to the original.

+Joseph Cappellino not pixel density. The wasted space it just a lot of added white space and banners/icons.

The icon for a notification takes 1/3 of the screen. While in the timeline, you generally have white space equal to 1/3 of the screen so you get an item at the top and 2 lines of the next item at the bottom.

It should all be fixable in software, but I'm not sure if they are going to give up their "pretty" ui

Yeah. This wasn't a great choice for mini sessions

This year there are less rooms and more open space, so people are hanging around like this watching the sessions.

I think I'm going home and watch live streams from there.

Data Binding is one of the most exciting things out of IO this year. We'll be going more in depth soon, but after using it for a bit, the entire WillowTree team is pretty excited. Here's a quick overview of MVVM to get you started. :) 
This year’s Google IO introduces an awesome new framework for Android developers that allows for “binding” of views to fields on an arbitrary object...
