Android Authority this week

by John_A

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge-30

Android fans, this was a bit quiet on the Android front (unless you count the outrageous April Fools’ pranks that made the rounds), but Google made it up to us with some interesting developments on the Chrome OS front. Google and its partners launched cheap new Chromebooks, a new Chromebase, the Chromebit TV dongle, and a tool that allows just about any Android app to run on Chrome OS. In other news, we heard rumors about the Xperia Z4 and the LG G4, Lollipop updates hit several popular devices, Google updated some of its apps, HTC introduced the One E9+ and the One M8+, and OnePlus finally released its new Oxygen OS.

It was no April Fools’ joke, but it was announced on April 1, naturally creating a little confusion. Experienced tech journalist, prodigious Twitter user, and all around jolly good fellow Nirave Ghondia is joining Android Authority. Based in the UK, Nirave will contribute features and opinion pieces on the hottest developments in the tech world. Here’s to a long and fertile collaboration!

Spearheaded by Gary, we’re doubling down on our developer-focused content. By the way, if you’re interested in developing for Android and IoT, you should give our weekly developer newsletter a look. It’s all hand-picked resources that  – we hope – will help improve your skills.

We’re also pushing hard with our new app and product database, so hopefully we’ll have some good news to share in the next weeks.

A PSA from my colleagues doing our podcast: we’ve published last week’s edition (Sci-Fi tech of today) – sorry for the delay! We’ve also put up this week’s edition (Chrome OS), so happy listening!

As always, Sunday brings you the chance to win a cool new device from our weekly giveaway (we’ve changed up the raffle widget, by the way, hope you like the new one). This week it’s a Galaxy S6 Edge.
