You know how the volume/do-not-disturb combination of things in Lollipop drove almost all of you nuts? Google heard you loud and clear and have attempted to fix the volume situation with Android M. We now have simplified volume controls that actually make sense and work like they used to.
As you will see in the video below, you can once again press the volume down button on your phone to take you all the way to vibrate, but another tap then jumps into silent mode, which really is now Do Not Disturb mode (again). That mode makes everything quiet, outside of alarms, which is exactly how it should be and should have been. (more…)
Hey, look at that, the next version of Android being mentioned in an official Google I/O session description. Yep, Android M is coming at Google I/O at the end of this month. Seriously, a new version of Android is already here, even though Lollipop is only on 10% of Android devices. (more…)
That’s right, in the latest Android 5.0 “Lollipop” preview build that went live today, Google brought back the “clear all” notifications button. If you weren’t running either of the previous Android L previews, then you likely do not care at all. However, if you did, you already realize how big of a deal this is. Having to individually clear away 10+ notifications after not looking at your phone for a lengthy period of time is not fun.
Thank you, Google. Thank you for bringing it back.
Maybe next, next, next time, Oreo.
Best. Android. Reveal. Video. Ever.
