Google starts deep linking iOS apps from Safari, throws shade at Apple

Apple usually isn’t all that subtle when it comes to putting down competitors, especially Google. But, Google tends to be a bit more passive aggressive with its jabs, and that shows again in the new announcement to developers talking about how to deep link to iOS apps from Google search results in the Safari browser.This means that a search result for a location will show as a deep link that bumps users directly to that place page within an app like Yelp. 

Of course, in the announcement Google couldn’t help mentioning that not only has Android had this feature for a long …

Unannounced Motorola Droid Maxx 2 mentioned by Google, could be released soon

Google has seemingly confirmed the fact that the unannounced Motorola Droid Maxx 2 is nothing else but a re-branded Moto X Play (a handset that’s been available since August in various markets outside the US).

On a list of devices optimized for Android Screen casting, Google is showing that the “Droid Maxx 2 (Verizon)” and the “Moto X Play (rest of the world)” are one and the same phone. Of course, this doesn’t tell us anything about the launch of the Droid Maxx 2, though we expect Verizon and Motorola to officially announce and release the smartphone in the near future.

Google Photos for iOS receives an update allowing you to label faces, share animation, and more

Google Photos for iOS has been updated to version 1.4, allowing you to share animation via WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger. In the U.S. only, you can label people who are pictured in photographs. Once you have these people labeled, you can merge face groups, search for specific people, and even combine specific search terms (Fred at the ballpark in Cleveland).

Other changes allow the app to open faster, and the new version comes with bug fixes and performance improvements. One thing missing is support for Chromecast, which Google promises is coming soon.

ZTE executive calls Google Nexus 6P a ripoff of ZTE Grand S

ZTE blames Google of copying its design, claims Nexus 6P is a clone of ZTE Grand S (Anthena)

It took only a few days for ZTE to make a claim that Google and Huawei copied of its smartphone design after the Nexus 6P was announced. Google had unveiled two Nexus smartphones, a flagship smartphone called Nexus 6P which is being made by Huawei and a budget smartphone model, Nexus 5X which will be made by LG.

Not even waiting for Google/Huawei to begin shipping of its flagship, Nexus 6P, the ZTE’s Marketing Director Lu Quin Hao took to the Chinese microblogging website, Weibo to accuse Google and Huawei of copying its smartphone design.

ZTE blames Google of copying its design, claims Nexus 6P is a clone of ZTE Grand S (Anthena)

The post is in Chinese and roughly translated, Hao is accusing Huawei and Google indirectly of blatantly copying the ZTE Grand S Anthena design for the Nexus 6P. Hao used sarcasm to pan Huawei and Google because the post says the phone “pays heavy tribute” to the ZTE Grand S and is directed at Huawei’s Yu Chengdong.

From the looks of it, Nexus 6P and Grand S Anthena seem similar. Other than the looks, Nexus 6P also has a black bar on the back of the device encasing the camera which very similar to the Grand S. However, the similarities end there. The Grand S does not have a fingerprint scanner located on the rear. Neither is it as sleek as Nexus 6P, which is made of metal.

ZTE’s smartphone was launched in 2013 with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon S4 Pro processor under the hood, and 2GB of RAM on board. While Nexus 6P is yet to be shipped to customers, comes with a 5.7-inch WQHD AMOLED display and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 Octa-Core, runs on 3GB RAM and has Google’s latest operating system, Android 6.0 Marshmallow aboard it.

Till the time of writing of this article, Huawei or Google have not reacted to Hao’s accusation.
