Now on the Google app for Android, even if your search fails, Google will deliver your results as soon as a connection is available—so you can keep searching with a single tap.
Now on the Google app for Android, if your search fails due to a spotty network, Google will deliver your results as soon as a connection is available so you can keep searching with a single tap.

Phew!
 
Ever wanted to download adb or fastboot without having to download the whole of Android Studio?

...but didn't want to download executables from some random warez site?

Good news this week:

https://dl.google.com/android/repository/platform-tools-latest-darwin.zip

https://dl.google.com/android/repository/platform-tools-latest-linux.zip

https://dl.google.com/android/repository/platform-tools-latest-windows.zip

These links will always return the adb/fastboot binaries currently shipping with Android Studio. No need to guess what the current version is, or update your own links: just follow these and get the latest binaries, direct from the source.

This is thanks to +Siva Velusamy and Kevin Quinn, not me.

I hope offline mode would include calling people, opening apps and setting alarm without internet connection. Google assistant should also call the default number set for the contact.
 
Google is server-side testing a new "Recent" tab, "Offline Search," and a Lite mode in the Google app.

First, tapping the new "Recent" option in the navigation drawer will open a horizontal-scrolling list of all your recent searches with large thumbnails for each search result page. Thanks to the large thumbnails, you can quickly and easily check out an answer if it's there, or you can tap the thumbnail to perform the search again. In addition, search results where you have viewed multiple pages are grouped together with a blue page indicator to identify how many pages have been grouped.

Second, Google has added a new "Offline Search" option for situations where your connection is spotty or are offline. How does it work? With the "Offline Search" option toggled on in settings, Google will perform searches that have previously failed (once you have a better connection) in the background, and will notify you when the results are ready. You can also manage your pending searches in the new "Manage searches" section in the navigation drawer.

Third, the "Lite Mode" option that appears in the navigation drawer is a pretty handy feature for people who are on a slow connection. "Lite Mode" will strip out nonessential content from pages and keep the important parts so that pages use less data and load faster. Tapping the "Lite Mode" option on the navigation drawer will open up the feature's settings and allow you to configure "Lite Mode" to your liking. Once inside "Lite Mode" settings, you will be able to choose from three options: "On" (Always use Lite mode to save data), "Automatic" (Use Lite mode only when a slow connection is detected), or "Off" (Don't use Lite Mode).

The Motorola E was really laggy and it would be even worse on Android N. I don't think running Android N on budget devices is a good call.

In Google Allo, the Google Assistant already features the ability for users to type to communicate with the Assistant. However, with the Google Assistant on phones like Pixel, the only option to communicate with the Assistant is by voice. Now, a teardown of Google app v6.10 beta reveals that Google may soon feature a keyboard icon in Assistant that, when pressed, will bring up a "Type something..." text box for users to type their queries.

The Internet of Things (IoT) will bring computing to a whole new range of devices. Today we're announcing two important updates to our IoT developer platform to make it faster and easier for you to create these smart, connected products.

We're releasing a Developer Preview of Android Things, a comprehensive way to build IoT products with the power of Android, one of the world's most supported operating systems. Now any Android developer can quickly build a smart device using Android APIs and Google services, while staying highly secure with updates direct from Google. We incorporated the feedback from Project Brillo to include familiar tools such as Android Studio, the Android Software Development Kit (SDK), Google Play Services, and Google Cloud Platform. And in the coming months, we will provide Developer Preview updates to bring you the infrastructure for securely pushing regular OS patches, security fixes, and your own updates, as well as built-in Weave connectivity and more.
