nexus2cee_n6_thumb.pngThe Nexus 6 is the first Nexus phone to have an official home on all four big US carriers. That means there are bound to be some carrier-specific updates, even for a Nexus phone. T-Mobile recently hinted that 5.1.1 was on the way with WiFi calling, and now we've got a leak from Sprint that says 5.1.1 (LMY47Z) will be out on May 26th.

Maps-ThumbIf you're looking for a nearby place to eat and want directions on how to get there, open Google Maps first. If you try using the Google Search app or the web, you probably won't get the results you want.

You see, Search is currently having a hard time giving out directions. If you tap the icon underneath a restaurant, it will open up Google Maps, but after that... nothing.

music_app_iconSony's decision to drop the Walkman brand from its music app left people strangely upset, but maybe this will cool some hot heads. The latest update of the beta music app adds Google Cast support. It's "experimental," but it's better than nothing.

Here's the full changelog for the new version. It's more than just the casting support, but not much more.

  • Google Cast support (Experimental feature)
  • Crisper album art in lock screen (Lollipop devices)
  • Download music info moved to Settings
  • Misc bug fixes

You need to be using a  Sony device to use the music app, just like when it was still called Walkman.

Google is no stranger to testing new features or design tweaks on its live products, and search has been receiving quite a bit of attention lately. It doesn't necessarily come as a surprise, then, to see new design tweaks appearing for some users in Google's image search results.

The new design, which so far appears to be in very limited testing, offers a brighter layout for individual images - the background is a light #eeeeee as opposed to the solid black seen in its current iteration, and there's a relocated "close" button along with a new way to show image details.

LGGWatchR-ThumbOne of Android Wear 5.1's key new features is the ability to connect smartwatches to Wi-Fi networks directly. This lets them receive notifications and sync actions even if your phone isn't nearby, as long as both maintain active connections to the Internet. The thing is, this feature doesn't automatically kick in with the 5.1 update (or 5.1.1, though it should for the Moto 360, Sony Smartwatch 3, and Samsung Gear Live).

TWRP-ThumbTWRP has officially come to two more devices, and they're quite an odd pair. One is the Oppo R5. This is a phone so thin that it lacks a headphone jack.

The second is the Nexus Player. Yup, official TWRP support for your set-top box. But experience won't exactly be the smooth one you're expecting. The maintainer says you will need a USB OTG cable and a USB mouse to navigate TWRP on the device, and even then, the graphics will be a bit laggy due to a lack of optimization for x86.

Nexus6-ThumbAndroid 5.1.1 is working its way through Google's lengthy list of Nexus devices. After coming to Wi-Fi tablets first, this week we saw it start to hit cellular devices like the Nexus 5, N4, and N9 LTE. As you may have noticed, Google's latest smartphone didn't make the list. With any luck, the Nexus 6 will get an over-the-air update sometime this weekend.

T-Mobile Product Evangelist Des recently sent out this tweet.

If you had eagerly waited for Project Fi's announcement and requested an invite as soon as they were public, you've likely been sitting over the past weeks tapping your foot impatiently and anticipating that acceptance email to hit your inbox so you can free yourself from the shackles of your operator.

The wait might be longer than expected though. An email is being sent to those who requested invites letting them know that due to the service's high-demand, invites might take until mid-summer to go out to everyone, but that there'll soon be an online tracker for checking the status of your request.
