Android Overload: Draw Something Plans To Inlcude Chat and Save Features, Google Patents Ads That Listen To Background Noise and More


Greetings, my fine Phandroid friends. I think it would be safe to call this Angry Birds Space Day and aside from tonight’s big announcement, we brought you a ton of Android news throughout the day. In case you needed a little bit more… we’ve piled up a few more that we didn’t feature on our front page, here — in the Android Overload.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. “Background noise” huh? Pretty soon my phone is gonna be recommending me anti-gas products. 

  2. Only if you need Alex…only if you need them. Ahhh this is off subject but whats up with the coming soon Phandriod extras? I mean having they been coming soon for like.a year now??..??

    1. We’re actually scrapping the current app and starting completely fresh. I’m excited because quite frankly, I’ve never been a big fan of the current app. =p

  3. Background noise huh? So Google is going to start listening in on people’s conversations? How is that legal? Privacy is almost gone people, and one day it will be gone completely. Don’t leave it up for the government to protect us/stop this because governments too love to spy on their citizens. Governments buy or demand access to companies like Google’s data. Watch the CNBC special “Big Brother, Big Business”. I love Android, but Google’s motto of do no evil is complete BS. That was old, and anyone who still believes it is delirious. It is starting to get creepy people. Oh the times, they are a-changin’.

  4. doesn’t the spectrum have an unlocked bootloader? I would imagine that would help them.if development kicks off for it I’ll be getting one

  5. I love Android, but if the ads get any more intrusive than they already are, I may have to start looking at alternatives.

  6. You get to closer to see Google’s true face everyday.

  7. And when is Blackberry going to start? I just read on 
    http://www.draw-something.com/draw-something-on-blackberry-is-coming/ that a blackberry version is coming, is this true?
