Over at /r/WearOS, we're running our first-ever Watch Awards to find the most-loved watch. If you are a Wear OS/Android Wear user, we need you to rate your watch(es)! Soon, we'll average out all the ratings to determine the wearable (and brand) you all love the most. Here's where to rate your watch.

In a few weeks, the results will be posted to /r/WearOS, so stay tuned there!

How I finally got rid of Google Assistant!

Fri, 11/16/2018 - 16:57

So a while ago I posted this screenshot and asked how to stop Google Assistant appearing. It usually only appears when using the home button, but for my phone the shortcut is when you swipe up. This means whenever I am scrolling, Google Assistant occasionally pops up and gets in my way.

For those like me who want Google Assistant to go away, and don't have the option to uninstall this is how to get rid of it.

Samsung: Settings > Apps > Three Dots > Default Apps > Device Assistance App > Device Assistance App > None (or select another shortcut if you want).

Huawei: Settings > Apps & Notifications > Default Apps > Assistance and Voice Input > Assist App > None (or select another shortcut if you want).

Honestly this has been such a pain in the ass for me, I'm really happy to finally have it gone.

[Dev] Backdrops v4.0! - Promo Codes Inside!

Fri, 11/16/2018 - 09:59

Hi! I'm Kxnt (kant), one of the devs of Backdrops. It's a little wallpaper app you might've heard of. It has exclusive designs created by us along with a curated Community section featuring nothing but high quality user shots.

After a couple of months in alpha, and a few weeks in beta, we just finished rolling out Backdrops v4.0! We've updated and redesigned the entire app with our own flavor of Material Theming, including a new color scheme, iconography & a bold new font. We think you guys are gonna like it.

Here's an imgur gallery with some preview shots of the new look.

To celebrate this delicious update, we're giving away some Promo Codes for Backdrops Pro. Going Pro removes all ads, and unlocks some other features such as collections, saving exclusives and applying from notifications.

Here's a Google Sheet doc with 40 Pro codes. First come, first serve! Go! (To use a code, just install Backdrops. Then open up the Play Store, slide out the left drawer and select Redeem). Once these are all gone, I'll be posting more codes in the comments throughout the day.

Let us know what you think of the new update!
