Android update: what’s the point?

Android update: what’s the point?

Google releases another new version of Android and I have to ask: what is the point? Why continue to allow the public to be misled? We asked this question a few years ago, suggesting that Google should never have promised Android updates in the first place. They called it the "Update Alliance" - a group of manufacturers and mobile carriers that promised quick updates to Android whenever Google had them available. It was absurd then.

Do not download Android N

Do not download Android N

Google's new Android N Developer Preview software shows off new features as well as plentiful reason why it's not meant for general users. Google has made clear that this update to the operating system is made for developers - not for everyday average Android device owners. As such - and since it's been released so very early - Android N is not for you. Unless of course you're a developer. A developer who likes to find bugs.

How to download the Android N update

How to download the Android N update

This week a bit of a slip of the publish button seems to have revealed a whole lot of details about the next version of Google's Android. The dessert known as Android N, more than likely Android Nerds, or Nougat, will be launching this week as a developer preview on multiple devices. If a leak (now pulled) from Ars Technica is to be believed, this will include the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Pixel C, Nexus 9 (tablet), and a single Android One phone by the name of General Mobile 4G. Strangely enough, this is not the first time this has happened.
