Back when Google unveiled the Nexus 5, it previewed an upcoming feature for the Google Search app that would allow users to directly open search results inside of relevant apps, rather than taking to their website.
So, if a user would search for a movie name on Google search for Android, he would get an option to directly open the search result inside the IMDb app.
Earlier today, we reported the various issues Nexus 4 owners are facing after updating their handset to Android 4.4 KitKat including Bluetooth connection dropping, random reboots and more. If you are also having trouble with KitKat on your Nexus 4 and are looking to downgrade to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, here is a quick guide on doing so.
Google has successfully managed to roll out the Android 4.4 KitKat update for all the supported Nexus and Google Play edition devices within a couple of weeks of the OS being announced. Sadly, the current build of KitKat is not without its issues and contains a lot of bugs and issues, especially on the Nexus 5.
Google has already stated that it is working on an update that should fix most of the issues with KitKat. Turns out, the update might just be around the corner and might land before Christmas arrives.
It was widely expected that the Nexus 5 from Google would also include the always on listening feature as seen on the Moto X, since the Snapdragon S800 processor has a dedicated core for audio processing while barely sipping any power. While the Nexus 5 does have the ‘Ok, Google’ feature, it only works on the home screen, and not when the device screen is turned off.
As it turns out, there is more to Motorola’s Touchless control feature than what meets the eye.
It was widely expected that Google would be unveiling the successor to the Nexus 10 as well, when it announced the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat. However, its been a month since Google put the Nexus 5 up for sale, but there have been no signs of a Nexus 10 successor being launched.
Well, it looks like Google is either done with 10-inch Nexus tablet form-factor, or it is on the verge of releasing a successor sometime soon.

Lately, Motorola has been making all the right moves that a consumer could hope and wish for from an OEM. The company managed to update the Moto X to KitKat on all the major carriers in the U.S. last week itself, and then, decided to ease up the warranty rules on its developer edition devices.
Now, the company will be offering an absolutely stellar deal on the unlocked Moto X on Cyber Monday, making the handset irresistible.
Got yourself a Google Play edition HTC One but still waiting for the Android 4.4 KitKat update? Worry not. If you are impatient enough for the OTA update to arrive, you can always manually install the update on your phone in a few simple steps.
Sony has always been slow in updating their devices to the latest version of Android. While Motorola has already updated the Moto X to KitKat, OEMs like HTC and Samsung have promised to update their flagship devices to KitKat by January end. Sony, on the other hand, has only confirmed the devices that would be getting the KitKat update.
OmniROM, developed by ex-CyanogenMod members and talented developers like Chainfire, have started rolling out the official nightlies of their ROM based on Android 4.4 KitKat. Initially, the team is bringing their nighties to fifteen Android devices including the likes of Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Galaxy S4, S3, Note 2 and more.
