Google confirms that rootless custom themes aren’t making a comeback in Android 9.0

Android Oreo was a theming wonderland. We could use Substratum to theme the entire operating system without even having to root our device. That sounds wonderful, doesn’t it?

Unfortunately, this doesn’t work in Android P and Google confirmed that it never will. In the Google Issue Tracker, the company marked the issue of Substratum not working in Android P as “Won’t Fix (Intended Behavior).”

“We appreciate the feedback and would like to share some background information and clarifications.

New from Google: Google Lens, Mid-range Pixel Phone, Redesigned Gmail

Google, as we all know, always has the tendency to change from time to time. Some call it an adaptation, improvement, investment, or just plain inconsistent. Whatsoever people want to call it, we still love Google more than anything.

This year, a lot of things are going on around the Android phone and that’s all thanks to Google. Two honorable mentions for these changes is the launch of YouTube Music which makes two Google music-streaming app and Android P beta, buggy and less savvy, but already available on some Android phones.

However, the company is not done yet. More of these changes will be coming and here are three of them that is happening, about to happen, and will…

Did You Know That Google Has 7 Messaging Apps?

Google recently announced their latest music-streaming app making people think that the company was redundant since they already have Google Music. We can’t imagine their reaction if they realize that Google has seven messaging apps!

Google started off a search engine and e-mail. There is no doubt that the company would emphasize people’s ability to communicate. But, we never thought Google would emphasize ‘communication’ this much.

It was in 2004 when Google launched its first messaging app – Google Talk. Then followed by Gmail, hangouts, and so on. This can be quite confusing, but Google proves in history that they have the tendency to disable services, rebrand o…

Google explains why typing the1975com in your Android phones Google app brought up your messaging history

A weird glitch was noticed on the Google app for Android last week, when a Redditor mistyped the name of a band and instead typed ‘the1975..com’ in the search field on the app. The search result displayed the user’s SMS history for some peculiar reason and it was later determined that the same was the case when someone searched for ‘izela viagens’, another case of a user mistyping the name of a Portuguese travel agency. We tried it too and weirdly enough, the Google app on Android gave us our SMS history in the search results and we, a…
