Family Star An easier way to find a movie, a book or app that is family friendly. Tap the Family button on Google Play and Peppa Pig, Dora the Explorer and more family oriented content is just a click away.

Google Play well also give parents now control over what content is downloaded so parents can restrict downloads, purchases or streaming.

The updated Google Play should be rolling out over the next couple of weeks but you can read more via the link below.

The only place you need to be to watch Google I/O if you won't be there in person.

I'm hoping for the new Pictures app and I'm very intrigued about the possibility of a new smaller Nexus as my wife will soon be needing a new phone.

It all kicks off at 17:30PM here in the UK. You can turn in via the link below. Think I'll whizz it via my Chromebook to my TV this time round.

Brilliant on the Moto X 2014 Now they'll be just as super on other devices. It'll be a case of seeing which handsets will be compatible, Google have advised that they are working towards bringing other devices in on the fun.

The really fantastic thing with Spotlight Stories is you are in control. Move you phone to follow what's going on or take a look around where you might come across a few surprises. 

The animation for Duet was directed by Disney's alum Glen Keane, who has worked on films including The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and Beauty and the Beast.

Windy Day was created by Jan Pinkava, the co-director of Pixar's Ratatouille.Buggy Night is the third instalment and was released only a few weeks back.

The latest story is called Help where you'll find yourself dropped in to Los Angeles in the middle of a meteor storm.

Help is directed by Justin Lin from the Fast and Furious franchise who is also directing the new Star Trek film.

It's working a treat on my Nexus 6. You'll notice that is listed with in-app purchases so Google may well offer more for a small fee. The fact that Help is free for a limited time pretty much cements that.

LG G4 shipping tomorrow The camera on this thing is pretty impressive as is the Tan Leather look. Clove Technology will be shipping orders tomorrow so you'll have it with you on Thursday if you reside in the UK.

I had a quick go with the Tan Leather one a week or so ago and really liked it. Clove have had a great deal of interest in the LG G4 and if you want one head over to their website via the link below.

Until I can get a permalink to a picture as easily as I can in DropBox, I won't be putting many photos in Photos.

It used to be reasonably easy in the old g+ photos to get the hosting link. That's gone in the new version.

I DropBox I just stick the picture in my Public folder, right-click it and select Get Public Link. Done. I can put that on a Forum, in Twitter or an email.

Google Photos will be available across Android, Web and iOS. The link below gives you a run through about what to expect and how it will work.

It's been a long time coming and what's more you get free unlimited backup with a 16 megapixel resolution limit for photos and 1080p for videos.

I like the ability to search via day, week, month, or even year simply by using a pinch gesture and if you want to share your pics or videos the usual sharing methods are available.

I selected to use the full size of photos and use up the capacity on my Drive, but my photos are 13MP which is now under the new max for free storage, 16MP. So I wonder if it will now give me the storage back those photos have been taking up, if they're under that limit.

Free Classical album I don't know anything about classical music but sometimes there is nothing better than tuning in to Classic FM to help you relax apart from a free album.

Hit the link below and you'll be whisked over to Google Play where you can bag a free album - 20 Classical Essentials.

No idea how long the album will be free for so I'd hit the link now.

The Tan Leather is my favourite and Clove are selling it for £509 including VAT plus shipping. Check out their prices for the Metallic Grey and Shiny Gold here - http://goo.gl/GnBDoD .

That is one sexy looking HTC M9 There are loads of other phones that can be skinned. Ideal if you aren't keen on a case but want some protection for your shiny new phone.

You can choose to have a wide range of devices covered from the Nexus 6, Sony Z3, Samsung Galaxy S6 and even a PlayStation. How about getting your Sky remote or GoPro done?

The guys running the show are based here in Bournemouth on the South Coast of the UK and ship to every corner of the world.

Take a look at all devices available here - http://goo.gl/L7To9l - where you'll also get a price for your particular device if supported.

#Android #UKKarbon

This product can be shipped today. For additional colours images please refer to our iPhone 6 page Why buy a skin from us? Not only will you add superior scratch protection to your HTC m9, you'll give it that 3D look that will make it look x10 more attractive. Our skins are made from premium quality 3M material which are easy to apply and leave NO sticky residue if removed. Not only that, it's impossible to get any air bubbles during application ...

The Sony Z3+ Sony have announced the Z3+ and I'm not all that sure it's going to be generating a great deal of interest considering what the updated specs bring.

The only real difference that many will notice is the Snapdragon 810 octa-core 64-bit processor. Sony say that the battery on the Z3+ should see you get up to 2 days use but I guess that'll be with no heavy gaming or streaming.

It's kept the waterproof rating and still has a camera that will no doubt take some rather super shots via the rear 20.7 megapixel camera and the front camera has been upgraded to 5MP

Not a huge update from the very popular Z3 but if you're coming to upgrade time with your airtime agreement and have been looking at the Z3 I'm sure you'll try and justify the expense.

What does puzzle the mind is the battery. In a smartphone world where people are battery conscious Sony have dropped the battery size. Even with stamina mode it's not a great move.

Expect to have it with you around the end of June for a price of £549 sim free and unlocked.

I find it ridiculous that they lowered the battery capacity just for the sake of having a thinner phone to differentiate it from the Z3. Especially since the S810 is battery hog.

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,
