I/O 2014


Finally, some confirmations. It's now officially confirmed that Google will announce a New Version of the Android OS featuring a nickname that starts with the letter "L", tomorrow at the Google I/O 2014 event.




Senior Vice President of Google, Sundar Pichai, has indicated that he will preview the newest Android OS (v4.5/v5.0) during Google's keynote tomorrow. This is a fresh move for the Mountain View company. The next major Android updated isn't expected to drop until later in the year, and this is the first time that Google has previewed its operating system so early on. Stay tuned for our full coverage tomorrow!


We already got a leaked screenshot from Android "L" that was leaked earlier today. You can also check this list What to Expect on the Google I/O 2014 ?



Google I/O 14


Google I/O 2014 is only 3 days away from us (25,Jun). What to Expect from this major event ? What Google is cooking for us ? Here's what to expect:



Android 5.0 Lollipop


Android 5.0


Google's I/O 2014 starts on Jun,25th which is nearly 9 months after Google presented the Android 4.4 KitKat to the world. With no big Android events that we know of, this seems like a perfect occasion for the next major version of the world's most popular operating system to get unwrapped. We've been hearing rumors about Android 5.0 Lollipop for quite a while now, but will Google really announce it ?



Android New UI "Quantum Paper"




The biggest upcoming change in the next Android version seems to be in its looks. Android Police uncovered plans for an all-encompassing (web, desktop and mobile) redesign of Google products to a new language referred to as "Quantum Paper". A flat interface with dominant whites and contrasty visuals, we've seen it leak for future revisions of apps like Calendar and Gmail, but it's only logical to assume that it will affect all native Android apps.


These new "Quantum Paper" visuals are linked to the upcoming Android "L" release, but expectations are for a gradual launch, with the new visual style appearing in updated apps one by one, rather than in one sweep.



First Android Wear Smartwatches

While all the planned changes to Android are massive, nothing excites more than new hardware, real devices that you can touch and play around with. Luckily, multiple source indicate that there will be some freebies for all Google I/O attendants in the form of the first Android Wear smartwatch the LG G Watch.

Google's idea of the smartwatch is not of an independent device, but rather as a companion to your smartphone that can listen to your voice, and display quick and relevant information in one glance. It will also have an always-on display, so you would not need to worry about turning it on just to glance the time.

Google Project Tango is a project that works with specialized devices running Android to track 3D objects and spaces in real-time and generates a vital map of it, which can be used for various purposes.

Considering the hardware, it's not surprising that the tablet is priced at $1024 and you'll have to sign up from Google's website to be able to get your hands on one.




Google Chrome 64-bit

Google Chrome has been a 32-bit Application since its version 1. Now, Finally, Google has released a 64-bit version of Chrome for Windows (Chrome v37). Currently available only for testing, latest build can be downloaded from Google's Canary and Dev channels.


Google Chrome 64-bit has a 25% improvement in performance than the 32-bit version, and its also more secure. The 64-bit version will take advantage of the High-RAM PCs (8GB and more). Also this version is 50% more stable with almost half the crashes of the 32-bit version.


Chrome 64-bit


Chrome 64-bit change-log :


Speed: 64-bit allows Google to take advantage of the latest processor and compiler optimizations, a more modern instruction set, and a calling convention that allows more function parameters to be passed quickly by registers. As a result, speed is improved, especially in graphics and multimedia content, which sees an average 25 percent bump in performance.


Security: With Chrome able to take advantage of the latest OS features such as High Entropy ASLR on Windows 8, security is improved on 64-bit platforms as well. Those extra bits also help better defend against exploitation techniques such as JIT spraying, and improve the effectiveness of existing security defense features like heap partitioning.


Stability: Google has observed a marked increase in stability for 64-bit Chrome over 32-bit Chrome. In particular, crash rates for the renderer process (i.e. Web content process) are almost half.




Chrome v36


As the Stable channel of the Google Chrome has reached version 35, the BETA channel has been updated to version 36. Chrome 36 BETA has a new revamped Chrome app launcher for Linux, along with many new APIs for chrome Apps and extensions to give more ability and tools to the developers.

Chrome 36 beta Change-log by Google:


- Chrome no longer sends touchcancel on touch scroll, improving compatibility with other browsers and making it possible to add touch UI effects like pull-to-refresh without re-implementing scrolling and fling physics in JavaScript.

- Some CSS properties such as scrollTop and offsetHeight will now return fractional values in browser-zoom situations.

- The new WOFF 2.0 Web Font compression format offers a 30 percent average gain over WOFF 1.0 (up to 50 percent in some cases).

- DevTools now faithfully emulates touch with mouse, allowing you to test touch interactions on Chrome for Android using the mobile emulation feature of DevTools.
