Android Wear Apps are here!

Services & Software
[MUSIC] What's up? Brian Tong here and welcome to Googlicious for all the Google goodness that we can pack inside of a show. Let's get to it. And the flood of Android Wear apps has started. You can check them out on Google Play Store with some intriguing ones like the popular Duolingo for learning a new language, Golf Shot GPS, and Allthecooks recipes. Because seeing a recipe on a tiny screen on a wrist is what we all really want to do. Now, in addition to apps, custom watch faces for Android wear have appeared on the Play Store as well, like this one called premium watch face, to give you that added flare. But that's just the simple stuff developers are working on. Check out this project by developer Doug Gregory, who appears to be associated with DCK Automation, by using the OK Google command. He shows off a demo where he's able to turn on a living room lamp, and turn on and off a living room fan all with his voice through Android ware. He also demos the concept of opening and closing your garage door and an information card about the current status of his home. Now, this is just a pretty slick early demo of what developers have been able to put together in such a short time, so. We know they'll be plenty more fun things coming and sticking around the home, a report by Rico which says Google is investing $500 million to expand it's Google shopping express service beyond San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York City with plans for a national roll out. Google acts as a delivery service for products that are actually supplied by local retailers, including Target, Costco, and Toys-R-Us in case you want to get the latest Guardians of the Galaxy Lego set with Rocket Racoon and Groot and set it up next to your TV set in your bedroom. The service is still free to customers for the first six months and Google is planning an Amazon Prime style option that would be an annual fee somewhere under $100 for unlimited deliveries. All right, let's change things up a bit with a really cool how-to for printing from any Android phone or tablet. First, head to your computer and launch Chrome. You'll need the browser to make this work. Open the menu and first check to see that you're signed in with your Google account. It should be the same one you associate with your Android device. Once you're signed in, go to Settings and scroll down to expand the Advanced Settings. Here, under Google Cloud Print, click Manage. Click Add Printers, and check the boxes for the printers you wanna use. In this case, it's my Epson. Now, head to your Android and download Google's Cloud Print app, which is actually more of a plugin that enables you to print from applications like Chrome and the Gallery. Once that's installed, you're ready to print. So I'll go to Chrome, and pull up a web page that I want to print out. Tap the Menu button, hit Print, and there's my Epson. In this window, you actually have a few options for things like paper size, color and orientation. All that's left to do is hit Print, and there it goes. Just keep in mind that your computer does have to be turned on for this to be able to work. If, for whatever reason, it's not, the documents will print once your computer powers up again. Or if you have Cloud Print ready printer, you can print to it even if your computer is switched off. Just go to Google support page for instructions on setting up your specific printer. Thank you for that Sheryn. Now, onto the Quick Hits. Google is putting a significantly stronger focus on the business and enterprise market, according to Fortune. Google has made key hires to grow that area of business. And spent more time on enterprise features like, drive for work and upgraded cloud storage offerings for businesses. Android work and Android's own business security feature for mobile devices that people use as work and personal phones at Google IO. Also still plenty of rumblings and buzz around Samsung's Galaxy F premium phone with this GSM Arena photo showing a familiar bezel that we've seen on a phone from a certain fruit company. And no, it's not Chiquita. And Royal Caribbean International has partnered with the Googs for the first of its kind street view tours on its cruise ship. Now check this out, you can tour their ship to find plenty of shirtless middle-aged or retired guys. Cruise by the aqua theater if you wanna see more guys, this time in Speedos. And I'm only messing around. This is actually really cool to get the layout and the different areas of their cruise ships because look, I just found the merry go round. All right, guys, that's gonna do it for this week's show. Email us at googlicious@cnet.com. Or Tweet me at briantong. Thanks so much for watching and we'll see you next time for some more of that Googlicious. [MUSIC] Googlicious.
