when are you (AP) gonna talk about the other upcoming [alleged] changes to Android???+Paul Burke
Hey man, I think you had got all wrong.
""You pop open the Hera multitasking"
Sounds just like opening an app to me. Actually, it sounds like it adds an extra, unnecessary, step."
How can that add an extra step when is REPLACING the multitasking view. Instead of opening the hangouts app or any other app, or go to the app through the multitasking view if you had it already opened, you will have a card in this new multitasking view which with you can interact directly. It saves you steps.
"The point is to provide a way to quickly and easily access the things that matter to you across a range of devices."
Sounds like Android, and also Google Now.
Hera will be part of Android so...obviously sounds like Android. Again, instead of provide that access go into an specific app, it's gonna trough the multitasking view, which you can access anywhere in the UI.
"Instead of opening up the Hangouts app, you pop open the Hera multitasking interface"
Why?! If you just were using Hangouts, its easily resumed from the multitasking button. Hera adds nothing here.
Dude what are you saying requires that you had already open the Hangouts app and still have it open in the multitasking view. Supposedly with Hera you won't need any of that. As the example explain, if you use Hangouts on the PC, you will can continue your chat through the multitasking view without had opened never before the hangouts app on your smartphone.
"You've forgotten the name [of the restaurant]"
Again, simply reopen maps from your multitasking bar, or pull down your notification shade. Google Now already takes care of this.
This is the same that with the Hangouts example. If you searched that restaurant on your PC, why would you have opened the Maps app on you smartphone? OH WAIT, this is EXACTLY what Hera is, except that you DON'T REOPEN any app (for what you need to already had opened it before) And gives you more option and interaction than a notification.
I think that all your complaint proves that you really don't understand the thing about Hera and all your response are beaten by the own Hera functionality. Or supposedly functionality anyway.
