[MUSIC] Delicious. So delicious. What's going on, Brian Tal here with your Googlicious for everything Google we can pack inside of a show. And yes, the craze is all about Pokemon Go right now. At least if you're in the US, New Zeeland or Australia with launched in Europe and Japan coming soon. But wait, hold on guys Just making sure my egg has hatched. Now according to Similar Web only two days after its release on July, 8th, Pokemon Go was already installed on over 5% of Android devices in the U.S. If that doesn't seem like a lot, it's already more installs than Tinder has on U.S. based Android phones. And we're all swiping right for Pokemon go. Plus sixty percent of the people who are using it daily means three percent of the entire U.S. android population is also using it daily. Now the latest data showed that Pokemon go is expected to have To have more daily active users than Twitter by the time you see this video. But like any great thing, there's also some downsides. Most people are setting it up with their Google account but Adam Reeve has found it could be a huge security risk because Pokemon Go Has full access to your Google account including reading and sending emails as you, accessing your Google drive doc, looking at your search and maps navigation history, accessing your private photos and more. Now some of you may not care and say Take over my life, Pokemon Go! It's not like they're really trying to take over your data, but access like that from any app is rare, and it's something you should be aware of. Its enough where some people are refusing to download the game, and if you want to, you can go to your Google security page, you can select Pokemon Go, and REMOVE to revoke all access. Now most cases, the game still works after this, but for others It doesn't, so youre experience may vary. Now, in a little bit of catch up from our hiatus last week, Android Police has posted a render of what the next Nexus phones will look like based on their sources. They claim there will be no camera hump, it will be entirely flush and there will be a gentle curve on the edges of the backside of the phone. Both phones will have aluminum bodies, not polycarbonate. And the G logo may, or may not exist on the final design. The code names for the two phones have been confirmed as Marlin for the 5.5 inch phone, and Sailfish for the smaller 5 incher. But we still do not know. Their final official names, expected release date, and how much they'll cost. Now, we've also heard rumblings that Google is working to control the hardware and software just like Apple for a future Nexus phone. But Android police reports that Google is building two of their own Android Wear smartwatches with Google Assistant integration. The two watches will possibly be Nexus branded with the target release some time after the new Nexus phones are announced. The report also says one will be larger, sportier and full featured with LTE and GPS connectivity, that one is known as Angelfish. The second one will be smaller in size without mobile data and GPS and is know internally A swordfish. Both watches are expected to have circular displays and will not feature that ugly flat tire interface. Google might be looking for a signature Android wear watch to be in the same conversation as the Apple watch or [INAUDIBLE] That's two, so we'll see how this all comes together. And the Android world is waiting to see Samsung release the new Note seven, and here Steve Hemmerstoffer gives us the first real look of the phone that backs up a lot of the renders we've seen, but this time And it's photos believed to be an actual prototype of the Note 7. Rumors expect it to include a 5 point HQ display, snap dragon 823 for the US market or an SNO S8890 internationally. 6 Gigs of rams, and 32 gigs of internal storage, with a micro-SD slot for expansion, plus a larger battery. Now, August 2nd is still believed to be the official date for an announcement, with an edge version of the Note 7 being a possibility as well. And a new report from the information says YouTube is making progress on an online TV service that won't require a cable subscription. Content partners at our firm leaked expected to be included are, ABC, CBS and ESPN, but Google is still in negotiations with NBC, Viacom and Fox. Now, as far back as May, the Unplugged service was rumored to cost under $35 per month. Another aspect of this service would include topic-specific YouTube channels that would be loaded with things like home improvement videos that could take place of TV networks like HDTV. Google's TV package is expected to launch in the next six to nine months. The report also says YouTube Red hasn't taken off the way they had hoped for with trial subscriptions now being extended from 30 days to four months. To attract more customers, yikes. And Google also confirmed its recent acquisition of video and broadcasting platform Anvato. Not to be confused with Aviato. I am a fan of Dorr. Have been ever sense you were at the helm of Aviato. You know Aviato? Yes. [FOREIGN] My [FOREIGN]? Is there any other [FOREIGN]? Like I said, not to be confused. Now Anvato is a fully automated platform for media encoding, editing, and publishing, it also has software for live streaming and broadcasts. And it's current customers include NBCUniversal, CBS, FOX Sports and others. Google has not said how it specifically plans to innovate on Anvato's service, but it could potentially play into its upcoming TV One. All right, that's gonna do for this week.
