#io16: New features in the Google Play Developer Console

Enable the pre-launch report to receive a summary of issues found when testing your alpha or beta app on Firebase Test Lab for Android on a wide range of devices.

We’re making it easier to gather feedback and insights from reviews with review benchmarks and review topics. You can also take advantage of the new reply to reviews API to integrate replying to reviews into your own customer support solution. Zendesk and Conversocial customers can now reply to Google Play reviews today on those platforms.

The user acquisition performance report now has the ability to see user acquisition data by country and will soon show user acquisition benchmarks to compare your app’s conversion rates to similar apps on the Play store.

When you’re setting prices for apps and IAP, the Developer Console will now automatically round prices to local conventions in each market.

Finally, you can now get the Google Play Developer Console on mobile! Install the Play Console app today.
Access your Google Play Developer Console data from your Android device. Re...

Building for billions
Announcing developers.google.com/billions.

Over half the world’s smartphone users access the Internet over a 2G connection. Even more may want to access content while entirely offline — whether between stations on the subway in Tokyo or to cope with a flakey connection in a rural part of Rajasthan.

To reach billions of users, developers must address core challenges: limited or intermittent connectivity, device compatibility, and high data costs. Today we’re unveiling developers.google.com/billions and related Android and Web resources to help developers deliver exceptional performance across a range of connections, data plans, and devices.

We’ll also be talking about this on stage every day at I/O - join us online or in-person:

Multiple Tasks with Concurrent Documents

Concurrent...documents? What’s important is what it does: allow your app to create separate tasks for independent parts of your app, expanding the ability to multitask through the Overview screen or, in the split-screen world of Android N, display side-by-side.

For context, it probably makes sense to watch/read through the Tasks and Back Stack post from earlier today: https://goo.gl/Xtd6nE

So watch the video and read the blog post (https://goo.gl/hZlzxB), but always continue to #BuildBetterApps.

Faster builds with Dex In Process in Android Studio 2.1

Android Studio 2.1 includes a new feature: Dex In Process, that can dramatically increase the speed of full clean builds as well as improving Instant Run performance.

To take advantage of Dex In Process, you’ll need to modify your gradle.properties file and increase the amount of memory allocated to the Gradle Daemon VM by 1 Gb, to a minimum of 2 Gb.

Details:

Security security check... to my brothers in Uganda, I pray you do the update o'er VPN...
 
Please update to Android Studio v2.1.1

We wanted to make you aware of an important security update for Android Studio.

Today we released the Android Studio 2.1.1 update. The incremental update addresses two security vulnerabilities in the underlying IntelliJ platform that affects all previous versions of Android Studio:

Built-in WebServer Vulnerabilities: A Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) flaw in the IDE’s built-in WebServer could allow an attacker to access the local file system from a malicious web page without user consent.

Internal RPC Vulnerabilities: Over-permissive Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) settings could allow an attacker to access various internal API endpoints; gain access to data saved by the IDE; gather various meta-information, like IDE version; or open a project without permission.

We have had no reports of active customer exploitation or abuse of these newly reported issues, but it’s important that you update to this new version now.

JetBrains notified Google of two security issues that affect all versions of Android Studio and we worked together to develop a solution. These issues not only affect the Android Studio development environment but all JetBrains products built on IntelliJ Platform including IntelliJ IDEA. See JetBrains security posting here: http://blog.jetbrains.com/blog/2016/05/security-update-for-intellij-based-ides

We are offering security patches for versions 1.5.1, 2.0, and 2.1 of Android Studio to upgrade to v2.1.1. Simply go into Android Studio and check updates (Help → Check for Update [Windows/Linux] , Android Studio → Check for Updates [OS X]).

If you need to stay on Android Studio 1.5.x, we are also offering a zip file of v1.5.2, which includes the patch for the security vulnerabilities. Download the zip from Android Studio tools website (http://tools.android.com/download/studio/builds/1-5-2/) and manually install the zip package over your existing Android Studio installation.
