Happy Birthday to you...... Google Earth is 10 years old today and to celebrate head on over to a desktop near you to catch the Voyager feature.

There are five new sections to explore and they are:

Street View: highlights from Street View, including the Taj Mahal and the Grand Canyon

Earth View: striking landscapes around the globe as seen from space (more below)

3D cities: a showcase of cities and towns available in photorealistic 3D (don’t forget to tilt!)

Satellite imagery updates: a map of our most recently published satellite imagery

Highlight tour: with thousands of Voyagerlocations to choose from, take a quick tour of a few to whet your appetite

Google Earth is an amazing programming achievement even though it has been around for 10 years and showcases just how great Google are at bringing services to us.

Oh oh Ever sent an email in haste and wish you hadn't? If you're using the Inbox by Gmail app for Android, the web and iOS.

Just after you hit the send button you'll have a few seconds to tap the undo button in a calm fashion before a picture or a few choice words end up in front of someone you rather they didn't.

There's a video showing it in action below. Get the app from Google Play here - https://goo.gl/8bWCBw

BBC Newsbeat Remember when you listened to Radio 1 all those years ago and Newsbeat came on at the top of the hour? You can now get it on your smartphone whenever you want.

It'll bring the same biased news as the BBC News app but with bits on music, entertainment and what Kim Jong-un is doing and I suspect the Kardashians will make an appearance too.

Get the app from Google Play via the below link.

John Lewis now selling mobile phones They've been selling tablets for a very long time, they have also been selling iPods forever.

Now you'll be able to pick up a smartphone via John Lewis and they have quite a mixed bag when it comes to choice. Dedicated stores will open in their Oxford Street and Cheadle Manchester stores with more planned if it's a success.

Vodafone will be their contract partner of choice and to keep things easy you'll have two contract offers to choose from one with low data, unlimited texts and minutes, and a high data tariff with unlimited texts and minutes but you will be able to opt for any tariff Vodafone sell if you prefer.

What will set John Lewis apart from other retailers is all handsets sold will come with free insurance and 2 years warranty. This coupled with their super customer service should see this venture work very well. It will certainly fill a void left by Phones 4u and allow them to take on Dixon Carphone. John Lewis have massive buying power so expect it to work and work very well.

The below link takes you to their SIM free handsets and they include the Galaxy S6, HTC M9, Xperia Z3 and more.

Can someone get that BT are looking to get shot of the traditional phone network so they can compete with the likes of Apple and Facebook. You can read more about that over on The Telegraph here -
goo.gl/EunzW2

Before you go though here's a question for you.

Do you still use a traditional phone from the likes of BT?

Ad supported radio via Google Play Music It's US only to start with as if you're surprised but hopefully we'll see it rolled out to other regions very soon including the UK.

For those in the US or for those that want to know more head on over to this Google blog.

Opening up with VPN after clearing data gives you access in the UK too. I've not had any ads yet either but do only have 6 skips.

Android news for the UK, all things Android in the UK
Introduction
UK based Android blog hoping to bring all the news for Android users here in the UK. You won't find us on a website, after a trial with Google + we have decided to use what has to be a more fun, interactive and easier way to post. Most of my 'blogging' will be done using nothing more than a Nexus 7 3G tablet, great for posting on the go and takes full advantage of all the services Google has to offer. I may also use the super Nexus 4 to add content, 

Please feel free to get in touch if you have anything you'd like shared with our followers
