Google seems to be horrible at implementing social media and messaging.Another try might be on the way, as Android Police have found proof, albeit very unofficial, about a new iteration of messaging on Android.According to reports, Google is developing its own game streaming service that would allow users to pay a monthly fee and play all the games available in the service. Streaming is apparently Google's choice rather than hopping into processing power competition against the likes of Sony and Microsoft.Games would be streamed over the internet and played with relatively cheap device.Even though Google's mobile operating system, Android, is arguably not as open source as the company wants you to think, many of the building blocks of it, thanks to AOPS or Android Open Source Project, are everybody's game.
If you want to look for surprises, you could maybe call the camera setups one.
Android's default messaging apps are probably used by a minority small enough to fit on a palm of a regular sized human hand. In most cases you either pick up Whats App or Facebook Messenger both owned by Facebook, mind you and only open up Messages, or whatever it's called, when absolutely necessary. Apple has managed to capture many, perhaps even most, i Phone users with their i Message.
And I say capture, because it really limits their options moving forwards as there is no i Message for Android, and likely never will.
It usually starts with a bang as many of the biggest players on the market reveal their latest and greatest smartphones.
Last year, though, arguably the biggest of them all was missing as Galaxy S8 was released a month later in a standalone event.
