The Huawei made Nexus 6P is a beast of a smartphone and has been winning rave reviews for its potent performance and of course Google's stock Android Marshmallow software. However, it is not faultless and it seems to have some microphone issues when users are trying to make calls, a problem that has been reported by numerous Nexus 6P users.
YouTube Music launched today for users of Android and iOS, downloadable from those platforms respective app stores. This is the latest music streaming service that will be taking the fight to the likes of Spotify, Apple Music, and Pandora. Google's YouTube Music has a potential ace card in that it also delivers video content, building on the services roots as an online video portal.
While Google Maps has been the go to navigation package for most people over the years, there are rival packages that sport features that Google's offering lacks. For example, Nokia's HERE Maps has been offering offline navigation for a very long time and since its debut on Android last year it has given users on the platform a very potent alternative to Google Maps.
Google has got into a tangle with some of its Nexus customer thanks to a tweet the company sent out last night. The social media excerpt in question saw the company say that Nexus orders are being fulfilled in the order in which they were received. Nothing wrong with that you may think, but many customers took to twitter to say that the statement was simply untrue.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the latest full release of Google's mobile operating system, is making its presence felt on the market through the first week of November.

Get the party poppers out and dance the night away as Google is celebrating an important milestone in the life of Android.

Huawei does not typically release flagship smartphones in the United States, but when the Chinese brand collaborated on Google on the Nexus 6P it gave U.S. consumers a rare chance to get a Huawei made device. And it seems those customers are digging what Huawei and Google cooked up together as Nexus 6P shipments have apparently been delayed in the U.S. due to high demand.
Google has rather quietly changed its app price limits around the world, meaning that the ceiling for the most expensive apps on the Google Play Store is now higher. The obviously results in consumers potentially paying more for the high end applications, but it is also good news for developers and users alike.
It seems that a yellow tint showing up on a smartphone screen is a cross platform occurrence. We first seen it way back on the Apple iPhone 4 and have since seen a similar problem crop up on some OnePlus One units as well as the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5.
When we think of mobile security we think of BlackBerry's BB10 or at a push iOS, we rarely consider Android because of the numerous problems the platform has had. Forced to pick the most secure manufacturer on Android we would say Samsung with its robust KNOX security suite, which is pretty spiffing. However, a new research paper out of prestigious Cambridge University in the United Kingdom disagrees.
