From today you can distribute apps that are Android Auto enabled!
If you've got content in your app, start integrating App Indexing to help users get back to it.
We're now rolling out a new version of Google Play services to Android devices worldwide. This update brings the latest and greatest APIs from Google including a new Location Settings Dialog and new Places API:
Location Settings Dialog - We’re making it easy to check for optimal location settings and offer a one touch control for users to change their settings with the Location Settings Dialog.
Places API - Brand new to Google Play Services is the Places API, giving you access to all of the places and business details through the Place Picker dialog or through your own UI using the getCurrentPlace() API and our autocomplete search results.
Google Fit - Fit is slimming down their memory usage and splitting the Fitness.API into multiple separate APIs as well as added support for body fat percentage and sleep data.
Google Mobile Ads - Google Mobile Ads SDK integrations will now automatically provide Google Analytics integration, giving you extra insight into your users.
Google Play Games - Announced at GDC (http://goo.gl/6ewnwr), this release adds the Nearby Connections API, allowing games to seamlessly connect smartphones and tablets as second-screen controls to the game running on your TV.
App Indexing - We’ve simplified the App Indexing API to make it even easier to get your app into Google Search results.
You'll be able to get started with the new APIs as soon as the Google Play services rollout is complete -- a process we expect to take several days. We'll then release the updated Google Play services SDK and you'll be able to download it through the Android SDK manager. Watch for more information coming soon.

I learned today for the first time that he was a photographer too...
Actor Leonard Nimoy passed away today at the age of 83. While famous for his role as Spock in the original Star Trek, what a lot of people may not know is that Nimoy was also a passionate photographer.
My main aim for photography is to have photos for my home that remind me of great experiences in my life.
Perhaps the more I've learnt about photography, the more conscious I am of my attempts, leading me to put up fewer photos of my own.
