Google looks to be the Netflix for mobile Apps
Brian Tong here with that Googlicious for everything Google that we can pack inside of a show.
Let's jump into it, and the big news this week starts from Google's division for connected home products.
No they announced their new nest came which is the newest iteration from their drop cam acquisition.
It's a 1080p resolution.
130 degree field of view camera with infrared night vision and a new nest aware cloud service to ave your recordings and it works with a new nest app to watch the video stream from anywhere.
And come on Who wouldn't want a camera owned by Google in your home watching 24/7?
I'm only kidding, just a little bit.
But I'm just glad these things didn't exist when I was a teenager because, yeah, this sucks for you all.
Now They also announced their second generation Nest Protect smoke detector, but they were no new updates to the Nest thermostat.
Nest also released this general video about smarthome automation.
The video features things like lights, fans, doors and kitchen products.
Rumors have already pointed to Nest working on sprinkler management and front door security products, so it could be a hint at other areas they're focusing on in the future.
Now, in the mobile safety information reports that Google secretly bought the app streaming startup Agawi late last year, but it wasn't reported until this week.
Agawi stands for any game, anywhere, instantly, and think of it like the Netflix of apps, where users can stream games.
And apps to their phone without having to download them first.
This could allow people to try apps before buying them, and Agawi can also stream Windows PC games to Android, iOS, or connected TVs.
Now, they say it's still at least a year or more out, according to the reports, so we'll see how this gets implemented down the road.
Plus, some more details about the OnePlus 2 phone have been trickling out thanks to their website.
And I mean trickle because they announced them one by one.
Just what everyone wants for an upcoming phone.
But the latest is that the phone will use Qualcom Snapdragon 810 processor and it will be version 2.1 of the chip set that they collaborated with Qualcom engineers to fine tune for the one plus two.
Now according to them, the overheating issues that have plagued the 810, won't be effecting the latest phone.
It's also confirmed the One Plus 2 will cost more than $322 dollars, due to the increased price of the chipset.
But they didn't give an exact retail price because, why would they do that?
That's For another ady.
ANd yet you still need an invite to get this phone when it releases.
Alright Android ware 5.1.1 is finally rolling out to the Motorola 360 with an over the year update to get some of the new features like flick of your wrist to see notifications or drawing emojis.
Also mobile games Samsung is rolling out their game recorder plus app on some of their devices.
It's an app that can record your screen Up to 1080p full resolution, with a floating UI that records your face and lets you record game commentary over it, and it can be edited afterwards.
Now, it's available for the S6, S6 Edge, Galaxy S5, S4, and the Note 4, Note 3, and Note 2.
And, in the biggest news of the week Twitter is testing out something that could change the course of history.
Yes, they've used the Android app to test out new ideas in the past and this one is a biggy.
They're experimenting with changing the favorite star icon with a heart.
Stars are now hearts, believe that.
All right, that's gonna do it for this week's show.
