You don’t need to touch the screen to get things done. When on your home screen* or in Google Now, just say “Ok Google” to launch voice search, send a text, get directions or even play a song.

Android 4.4 takes system performance to an all-time high by optimizing memory and improving your touchscreen so that it responds faster and more accurately than ever before. This means that you can listen to music while browsing the web, or race down the highway with the latest hit game, all without a hitch.

The new phone app automatically prioritizes your contacts based on the people you talk to the most. You can also search for nearby places and businesses, your contacts, or people in your Google Apps domain.

Custom URL's for Google+ Profile and Pages!  Get Yours Now!



What is a custom URL?
Instead of having a long link with tons of numbers linking to your Google+ Profile or Page, you can have a shorten link such as Google.com/+YourURL.

What is it good for?
- Each Profile or Page will have a unique URL featuring his name.
- This will help help people remember your URL
- It looks much better when sharing.

Who is eligible to get a custom URL?
Profiles need:
- Profile & Photo.
- At least 10 followers
- And account older than 30 days.

A custom URL is a short, easy-to-remember web address that links directly to your profile or page. For example, YouTube can direct people to google.com/+YouTube to visit their page rather than https://plus.google.com/115229808208707341778.


In order to get a custom Google+ URL you need to meet the following criterias:

Profile:
  1. Profile & Photo.
  2. At least 10 followers
  3. And account older than 30 days.

Pages:
- Linked website or verified local business.

  • If you meet the above criteria, you'll see a notification at the top of your Google+ page or Profile. 
  • Click Get a custom URL button to get started. 
  • Alternatively, from the "About" tab on your Profile, click the "Get" link located under your Google+ URL. 
  • You'll see the URL(s) you've been approved for. 
  • If you see more than one option, select the one you like best. You may also be asked to add a few numbers or letters to make the custom URL unique to you. 
  • Check the box to agree to the Terms of Service. 
  • Click Change URL. 
Important

At the moment, many pre approved custom url's will have an annoying ending such as Blogspot or Com. Note that you can only change the custom URL once, so think twice before you accept move to google.com/+YourCustomURLBLOGSPOT or google.com/+YourCustomURLCOM. We might see this change in the future, so perhaps it's best to wait.

Google Hangouts + SMS support, animated GIFs and auto enhance for video calls


This is BIG news - SMS integration is coming to Google Hangouts!

"You can have one place to manage all of your communication," said Google's Vic Gundotra on stage. That means you’ll be able to use Hangouts as your default app both for traditional texting and web-based instant messaging, effectively replacing the default SMS app.

The same update will also introduce a one-tap location-sharing feature. “How many times have you been in a conversation with a friend, and the question has come up, ‘Where are you?’” Gundotra said. “There’s simply a button at the bottom, a place button. You click it, and we will get your location from Google Maps and inject it with a single click.”

More announcements from today's event include:

- HD hangouts available to all users across all devices.
- Automatically removes people in the background of your photos.
- One-tap location sharing for its Android app.
- Hangouts adding support for animated GIFs

More updates to come...!
