Google is now integrated into the iMessage apps drawer

  Google is now integrated into the iMessage apps drawer Google has announced that its app for iOS is introducing several new changes today. For starters, the Google app for iOS now supports an iMessage extension that lets users search for and share things like videos, businesses, and more when messaging others. In the example below, icons like “Food” or “Nearby” can be tapped to discover and then share locations directly within iMessage. To the right of the search bar is a dedicated button which switches things into GIF Search mode. If you already have the Google app, as long as you’re updated to the newest version, it should automatically appear in the iMessage apps drawer.

Google and LG are set to present an 18-megapixel 4.3-inch OLED headset display with 1443 ppi and a higher refresh rate of 120Hz during the Display Week 2018 trade show in late May. The display will have a wide field of view and high acuity. The advanced program for the expo was spotted by Android Police via OLED-Info.

Those specs make the forthcoming headset better than most of what’s on the market. Screens like the new HTC Vive Pro and Oculus Rift only boast total resolutions of 2880 x 1600 and 2160 x 1200, respectively.

While the advanced program doesn’t reveal the panel’s resolution, we can speculate based on the pixel density and size that the screen’s resolution could be within the 5500 x 3000 range.

The next step for virtual reality could be headsets with pixel-dense displays, which could solve problems like when the boundaries between pixels are visible or when diagonal lines look rough and sharp. It’s still unclear if Google and LG will be able to deliver such an extremely high-resolution VR display in a consumer headset this year.

Android P Could Block Many Apps From Working .
Google is imposing stricter rules for Android apps, so many apps could be blocked from running when Android P comes out.The Mountain View giant announced last December that it is implementing new requirements for Android apps. Part of which is demanding developers to ensure that their apps in the Play Store would have to target an API level no more than 1 year older than the current codename release. According to Android Police, this would mean that apps submitted to the Play Store following Android P’s release need to target for Android 8.0 Oreo or above.
