+Kendall Cabrera Or at the VERY least, hide them so they don't take up space in your app drawer. Then you have a Settings page that says "here are your hidden apps if you want to unhide them." Like what Windows Update has.

It's weird that the most important UIs in an Android skin are the notification panel, recent apps, and settings. The rest can be replaced.

THEY KNOW.
 
It has been a long journey till here. And it is just getting started. There is some amount of pride to see something you started reach such a huge milestone. But most of it is the responsibility of meeting and exceeding user expectations. Your feedback, be it here on G+, or in Play Store reviews or via in-app mechanism helps drive our roadmap. So please keep it coming.
P.S. Unlike what the /r/Android subreddit says, the Hangouts team does come to work every morning trying to make it better :). Good stuff is coming.
Not many Android apps can say they've been installed a billion times. In fact, before today there were only ten - and out of those ten, only three of them... by Michael Crider in Applications, News

Hey I know, let's use an $80 HTC phone in the promo for our luxury smart home app. DAT BEZEL. (a Desire 510)

Every single Nest product costs more than this device. I guess when you spend $500 or whatever on outfitting your home with smoke detectors you don't have a lot left over for a decent phone.

Can't say I'm impressed with iOS 9.
iOS 9 takes a lot from its biggest competitor—and something from Windows 8, too.

Here's the show!
 
Last night's show was a doozy in so many ways. But it gave birth to the concept of a Hot Tub Piano Machine. So there's that.

With +Ron Amadeo joining +Jason Howell and +Ron Richards.

We discuss the end of Eclipse support, the end of Jason's Moto360, the end of battery's that suck (wishful thinking), the end of an awesome app... man, on second thought, last night's show seems like a bummer. But I promise it's not. You'll also discover a segment devoted to "leaky rear dimples." And for that, I'm truly sorry.

+Salvatore Barrile Sorry, I don't mean to ignore anyone. G+ notifications are so spammy nowadays that it's easy to miss stuff. =)

But no, I don't have a Mipad.  Is MIUI any different on tablets?

What's new in iOS Hangouts 4.0

If you're like me and don't use the iOS version of Hangouts much, this before/after gallery of the 4.0 update is helpful. There are some iOS-specific things (like the top menu) that will probably stay on iOS.
Lots of UI tweaks put an emphasis on sending your friends more than just text.

Xiaomi Mi 4i Review
Go price out another 1080p Snapdragon 615 phone. Go ahead. How many hundreds of dollars more is it than this?

Xiaomi's got a store in the US now. It seems inevitable that someday they'll be for sale here. 
A Snapdragon 615 and 3120 mAh battery are a steal, but the skin needs updating.

Let's kick off E3 with a YouTube Gaming deep dive!
A slick interface, huge user base, and tons of content should have Twitch worried.

Id say twitch was the ultimate twitch killer, they trashed themselves with no help from others.

+Jake Weisz It's legal I suppose. And they do it well. Many people seem to hate them day in day out without any good reason or a life of their own.
