BREAKING NEWS

The Next Nexus device from Google will be a phone or a tablet, or another kind of internet enabled device of some kind. It will be made by an OEM that Google either has, or has not worked with before. 

Regardless of whomever makes it the device itself will set be used as the then benchmark device.

It will divide a lot of people.

Many of you will not be happy with it.
Many of you will have expected more. 
Many of you will sit behind your screen and complain about it.
Many of you will vow to never buy it.

All of this will happen before Google officially announces anything. Before you see what the device looks like. You will be basing your views on fake renders and wishlists of what those who do not know anything make up. 

Please note this model can be applied to other phones and tablets, it is not not exclusive to the Nexus brand.

This PSA was brought to you by me since so many of you need to be reminded of it.

I doubt very much that they have done it. Amazon support Android in a way that users what? That's madness.

I don't see the problem here. The law says you cannot operate a device that has any kind of telephone connectivity while behind the wheel of a car. This guy did just that. He was caught and rightly fined.

Crying like a baby does not change the fact that he broke the driving laws in Canada.

+Robert T. Best​ mine was a general question I have no idea about the details of this case.

+Laura Feaga​ if you don't want anyone to disagree with you I suggest you stay away from the internet. Having said that have a nice day no offence was intended :)

In saw this out on my travels tonight. Next time someone saysnthe Nexus 6 is too big a phone show them this iPhone.

+Derek Ross​ mentioned earlier about a 100 inch Nexus device coming next year. You just know the Apple faithful will complain that they did it first.

I just want to thank +Carphone Warehouse​ for making my step fathers upgrade smooth and painless over the phone. He rang up, explained what his budget was and the member of staff was "beyond pleasant and helpful".

After reviewing the deal myself I was happy what was sold to him. A man in his 60's and he was not treated like an old fool.

Thank you again. I am sure he will be very happy with his new LG G3 S.

It even has an IR Blaster. A nice touch I think. At the end of the day it will be great for him. It is all he needs.

Google Developers originally shared to I/O:
 
If you’re looking to drive usage and grow a mobile app, you’re probably testing out referrals, recommendations, and the user onboarding experience. We know that this can be pretty resource intensive, so we’ve released in beta an App Invites toolkit. This lets both Android and iOS app developers increase their reach, deep link new users to custom experiences, and tap into your users’ Google-wide contacts as a source to drive referrals, and we’ve been working with +PicsArt Photo Studio +Yummly  +The CW Television Network +UrbanSitter and more. 

Check out our blog post below to see more examples of how partners have integrated App Invites, and get started at https://developers.google.com/app-invites/ 

At #io15 ? Come join "Grow your app via new word-of-mouth tools from Google" with Ranjith Jayaram and Raghavan Menon. The talks are today at 9:30 and 11:30 in Develop Talk 3 (L2).

Following +Adnan Begovic post https://plus.google.com/+AdnanBegovic/posts/a81bJMYXgwq, I enabled the Multi-window capability on Android M first preview, running here on a Nexus 9.

Hopefully, Google engineers will succeed to complete the implementation of this feature for the final release of Android M.
Today, it is experimental and unstable enough that they kept it hidden by default.
It wasn't mentioned at all during any keynote either.

Enabling the feature requires to switch the build type in build.prop to userdebug instead of user
I did that manually after fastboot booting twrp, but an easier alternative should be to flash this update.zip by sithrebel15
