Use Google Now with Viber and more Saying OK Google to whizz off a text, email or Hangout Message. All very handy but if you're using Whatsapp or the likes of Viber you still had to bash away at your devices screen.

Rolling out now is support for Whatsapp, Viber, WeChat, Telegram and NextPlus. All you need is the latest version of the Google app and the messaging app.

For now only English is supported for now with support for other languages will be added in the near future.

Wish Motorola were doing the next Nexus That Moto Play sounds like a cracking phone. It comes with a 21MP camera, a 5.5 inch and a  3,630mAh battery. You can get a full list of specs from the Motorola website here - http://goo.gl/4TV4rZ - plus you'll be a to use the Moto Maker to make it uniquely yours and have it in your hands come August.

Next up the Moto X Style. Here you have a 5.7 inch screen, zero shutter lag when using the 21 megapixel camera and 3GB of RAM with either a 32GB or 64GB storage option. There are plenty more specs and would find those on the Motorola website here - https://goo.gl/gCIXTw - and it can be yours come September. 

The ever popular Moto G had a new look. They've always been one of the handsets that wipe the floor of the competition when it comes to value for money.

This time round you can as with the Play and Style take to the brilliant Moto Maker to give your Moto G 2015 the personal touch. Specs for this include the option to build your own with either 8 or 16GB of storage. 

The 8GB will set you back a mere £179 and the 16GB will set you back £209. Before you do buy from elsewhere it might be worth noting that here in the UK via Quidco you can 3% cashback plus a £10 off voucher on any order over £75 plus free postage. To take advantage of that offer click here - http://goo.gl/RLaZps - and make sure you do before 30 September. The code applies to any purchase so not just to the Moto G. It will also need to be done from a desktop.

You can even use the Moto Maker if you go to the likes of Three to buy a Moto G. simply buy a Moto Maker Pin Card and head to the Moto Maker website. 

Other specs include a 5 inch display, 13MP camera and 4G. Other specs and how to go about making yours yours can be found on the Motorola website here - https://goo.gl/TigfTO .The Moto G is available today.

All three handsets will be clutter free so you'll have as close to Android as you could get. Expect details on pricing hopefully soon.

Kenu Airframe+ Portable In-Car Mount & Stand This is a very simple design and does just the job when it comes to using Google Maps on your device to get you to that job interview on time or around town.

The link below takes you to the Kenu Airframe+ for those with larger handsets such as the Nexus 6 or Samsung Galaxy Note Edge. With the Nexus 6 mind you will have to take it out of a case, not a real problem as it will be held in place securely on your vent.

Grab it from Mobile Fun via the below link for £24.99 As usual you'll get great customer service and people who know what they're doing when it comes to mobile and mobile accessories.

Deals of the week Is this new, haven't seen it show up before so it is to me but has anyone else seen the Deal of the week?

If not it looks like Google are going to be chucking in various apps at is for a knockdown price. This week you can pick up Smart Launcher 3 from Google Play here - https://goo.gl/y7fBkq - for just 10p.

In the Games section you can pick up Game of Thrones for the same 10p down from £3.97 here - https://goo.gl/1ljEr8

Guess this will be a Thursday to Thursday offer as is the free children's game found under the Family section so you've got a few days to decide if you want them but no time like the present as they say.

Three have the Moto G 3rd Gen from tomorrow If you want to pick the Moto G 3rd Gen from Three UK but still want to design your own look and feel all you need to do is buy a Moto Maker pin card from Three either online, on the phone or from a visit to one of their stores.

When you've got it make sure you head over to Quidco for 3% cashback plus £10 off any order over £75. This is the link you'll need to hit - http://goo.gl/RLaZps

When you get there you can make sign in to your Google account so it is all ready to go, have your name on the back plus choose your own start up screen.

After you have paid your new phone will be with you in about 5 days after. It couldn't be easy. Keep an eye on the Three website for more info - http://www.three.co.uk/

Amazon Prime Music launches in the UK If you're an Amazon Prime member and aren't yet streaming music from the likes of Google Play, Spotify or Deezer Amazon would like you to consider their service.

It isn't going to cost you anything as It will be bundled with you Prime subscription so you'll get the movie and TV streaming along with the delivery aspect of being a Prime member.

For £79 per year Amazon Prime ioffers a good range of services including cloud photo storage, video streaming and e-book lending. The only downside is the number of tracks will be smaller. The likes of Abba, Katy Perry, Kanye West and Eminem have withheld their music over royalty payments. Kayne West is also missing but I doubt that'll be of concern to many.

Download the Amazon Music with Prime Music app from Google Play via the link below.

App update - OnTrees

A super app now that you can edit transactions and hide accounts if you don't want them included in what is displayed.

If you haven't already downloaded the OnTrees app hit the link below. It comes from http://moneysupermarket.com and has been designed to give you an overview of what you're spending your money on.

The security conscious out there keep in mind that you'll be putting in you bank login details so OnTrees can get access to your monies.

Once you're set up choose from pretty much all of those who offer a bank account and you'll also be able to keep track of your credit card from the likes of Capital One.

The update is live now and I love the name and I wish it did.

Fill Up & Go What a brilliant way of paying for your fuel. All you need is your smartphone, a PayPal account and the Shell Motorist app. Sign up, link your PayPal account with the Shell app and then choose how much you want to fill up, scan a barcode and you're off.

The beauty with Fill Up and Go is the pump will only dispense the amount you choose to pay and there is no need to leave the forecourt as once you have put your cap back on just drive off. If you need a receipt an email will be sent so you can hand it in for an expenses claim.

+Shell​ have put together a handy How it Works, hit the link below for that and tap here - https://goo.gl/1D51gj where you can download the Shell Motorist app.

#Android #Shell 
Registering for Fill Up & Go is simple. Just make sure you have the Shell Motorist app on your mobile.

Bournemouth Echo app Now you can catch up on how much my fellow towns people hate cyclists and renewable energy direct from your smartphone and tablet.

When you come across a story you can share it via the usual means, Google+, Twitter, Facebook and more with the share button found to the top right of the screen. Next to that is where you can change the size of the text.

Making your way from one story to the next is as easy as simply swiping left to right or hit the menu button to the top right and select from the available options that include news, sport and even letters to the editors where you can read what locals think of what's going on.

There is no option in this version to view comments or comment on stories and if there happens to be video you'll have to leave the app and head over to the website. One very annoying feature is the back button doesn't work, you have to use the Back button to the top of the screen which on a tablet is a slight pain.

You can grab it via the Google Play store now. You need just over 10 MB of space. Before you can jump in and catch up with the local news you will have to sign in with your email and password.

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,
