Any chance of getting some media controls for the videos and vines?

Wait did they just try and say that the Play Store will remove apps on its own?

It always could, they've done it before. Play Services is malware, I've said it before, I'll say it again.

Can we stop tweaking the UI? I feel like everyone wants to be a UX designer but few understand that the job isn't just sitting in Photoshop/Sketch/GIMP or whatever flavour whomever prefers.

Personally I love the latest iteration of Phonograph, so thank you +Aleksandar Tešić​ for that. But I also loved the previous designs as well. I find Phonograph to be lightweight and it acts like how it should act in most cases. However it's the cases where it doesn't that mean I can't use it as my Daily Driver. These include no Google Cast/Chromecast support, not being able to fetch covers/album art for itself, not being able to share files to instant messages, not being able to open audio from gmail and not being able to modify pre-built playlists.

I like the fact that Phonograph stays in memory when I pause it unlike Shuttle. In fact it's because of that bug in Shuttle that I found Phonograph, however sadly since that day, the same usability issues and missing features have been present while the UI continues to supercede progress. Can the UI take a break to allow the functionality to be finished?

What is missing is the option to choose the artist image manually

It happens to me as well, and I have to do the same as you to get it to work again.

+Paul W. Google is going to pretend as hard as they can what they provide is adequate, because as soon as people start to realize it's not, they're out of business.

I play my music split between headphones and chromecast audio. I'm having a nightmare time at the moment due to shuttle randomly deciding to stop playing songs. It'll sometimes stop halfway through a song or sometimes refuse to switch to the next song. This is even when I've left shuttle we the active app. The problem seems worse when it's inactive. Anyone else seeing the same problems?

+Tim Malseed ​I'll describe today. I opened shuttle, connected to my chromecast audio, pressed play. Halfway through the song it stops. I pick up the phone and press play, it plays through the phone. I go back into shuttle and it connects to the chromecast again. Then I finish the dishes, start checking stuff on my phone, three apps away and the shuttle app icon disappears from the notification bar. I bring it back and keep it two as a minimum and it keeps disconnecting from the chromecast. I then head to the shower, play through the chromecast audio in there and leave the phone app active and it disconnects on its own.

Randomly disconnecting from the chromecast is more frequent than disappearing from the status bar but both regularly happen.

- Daydream is a new VR platform with enhanced performance and plausibilities
- Improved graphics, security and productivity in N
- Android Studio 2.2 with various improvements and a new layout editor

Some of my shows are missing. If I search to add them, they're already added but they're not in my list of shows and they're not showing on the schedule.

I'm guessing this doesn't surprise you +Jake Weisz​, what with Windows sending screenshots to Microsoft data centres every ten minutes.

+Paul W. I didn't think he was anymore. But when asked for their position, Microsoft indicated it's membership in an organization opposed to government surveillance and that organization's statement. The views of Bill Gates are certainly not the views of Microsoft.

Duplicate Finder not finding two identical mp3 files. The only difference between the files is one has a hyphen in the filename while the other doesn't.

Please make it so you can long press links everywhere. You can currently only do it on the timeline, but you can't do it with links on profiles/in bios or in direct messages.
