  • Android Dev Summit

Anyway, given its success-the app is used by over 30 million users each month-Google is rebranding Files Go to Files by Google.

Naturally, I go into Google Play to see if there is an update, only to find almost half of the apps on their phone in need of updating.

In order to give users and Android developers more controls to ensure the App compatibility across all devices, Google has added new In-app Updates API to the Android system.

Divisive Trump era ushers record number of women into House
In New York's 19th Congressional District, we will be at the camps both Democrat Antonio Delgado and Republican incumbent Rep. More women than ever were running, along with veterans and minorities, many of them motivated by revulsion over Trump.

"We attribute this to many factors, such as continued platform and API hardening, ongoing security updates and app security and developer training to reduce apps' access to sensitive data", said the Android Security & Privacy Team in a blog post today. Google has introduced new tools and features at Android Developer Summit.

As detailed in the Android Dev Summit, The API comes in two flavors: immediate and flexible. One is a full-screen update where the app user is prevented from using the app until the update has been completed. Google has added widely requested features in the latest In-app Updates API. Well, despite the announcement, there's no exact time given by Google as to when we will see the API working on Android devices. In flexible app update function, it allows Android users to keep using the app even while it is being updated.

Sure, the Play Store isn't flawless and you can still install a malicious app once in a while, but Google says that "Android devices that only download apps from Google Play are 9 times less likely to get a PHA than devices that download apps from other sources". Now, in keeping with its view of the future for the Next Billion Users (Google's capitalization), the app has a new UI as well as a new name.
