11 Weeks Of Android – A Recap from Bottle Rocket’s Developers

Every year, Google I/O happens right around this time in June. But this year, due to travel restrictions and COVID-19 concerns, Google decided to try something a little different. Instead of one action-packed week of announcements, keynotes and sessions, the 2020 version of Google I/O has taken on a new identity. And this time, we get a deep dive into one of 11 different announcements over the course of 11 weeks that coincide with the launch of Android 11. If you’d like to see what all is on the docket, you can visit the Android Developers page here.

Each week, our expert developers will be recapping the week’s information and offering up everything you need to know to stay abreast of all that Android 11 has to offer. Here’s the line up: 

  • Week 1 (June 15-19): People & Identity
  • Week 2 (June 22-26): Machine Learning 
  • Week 3 (June 29-July 3): Privacy & Security
  • Week 4 (July 6-10): Android 11 Compatibility
  • Week 5 (July 13-17): Languages
  • Week 6 (July 20-24): Android Jetpack
  • Week 7 (July 27-31): Android Developer Tools
  • Week 8 (August 3-7): App Distribution & Monetization
  • Week 9 (August 10-14): Android Beyond Phones
  • Week 10 (August 17-21): Games & Media
  • Week 11 (August 24-28): UI

*Each week, we will add new insights and topics to this article. Please check back each week to get the latest in Android announcements from your experts at Bottle Rocket. 

CURRENT WEEK:

Week 8 - App Distribution & Monetization  (August 3-7)  

This week we focused on what’s new in Android 11 about App Distribution and Monetization. Google has made improvements in the following areas: 

  • Fully redesigned Play Console in beta: 
    • Clearer and easier to use - the new console is equipped with updated navigation, new releases overview, managed publishing and updated status view  
    • More / faster ways to get answers needed - by offering the new inbox feature, access to new education pages for new features without having to sign in and console-wide unified search  
    • Better understanding of performance over time - by providing Improved reports and more benchmarks  
    • Better team management - with different access for different users that enables more granular control   
  • Android app bundle for optimized app distribution:  
    The console now has App bundle explorer. For games, Google Play Asset Delivery offers free dynamic delivery of game assets including three delivery modes (install time, on-demand and Fast follow.) 
  • Enhanced Play Commerce:  
    Focuses on building a trustworthy ecosystem to help retain users, and support a great developer experience through a modern platform. Google Play billing is focused on increasing your access to more customers around the world.  

This week again is packed with valuable information. All the changes made in the new Google Play Console are aimed to help reach and engage more users. For example, the Pre-launch report will help identify issues with the app before your users see them; Subscription report helps optimize the revenue growth and Acquisition report helps you understand how to grow your audience. Also, it’s important to note that new apps and games will be required to publish with the Android App Bundle in the second half of 2021. But no need to worry! There are lots of improvements made to help you develop, test, and publish with app bundles! 


Week 1 - People & Identity (June 15-19)

We just wrapped up week 1 and here’s what we learned. 

One of the key goals of Android 11 is for our phones to be more people-centric. Some of the new features introduced in Android 11 will allow the people in you life to feel like they’re right there with you. 

 These new features include:

  • Conversation Notifications - it’s meant for real-time conversations with real people and automatically cached by the system. A dedicated persistent space for these notifications is added with a section header marked as “Conversations” so you can quickly see and respond to them.
  • Bubbles - Graduated from developer preview to full user feature! You can grab a conversation that you’re actively engaging with and convert it to a bubble that lets it float on top of everything else you’re doing.
  • One Tap - Sign in and sign up are even easier and more secure through this new cross-platform sign-in method.
  • Block Store - A new token-based sign-in mechanism eliminates friction from sign-in flow.

At the center of this release is the Android Conversation Shortcut API and Identity Services Library. More information can be found here

The pattern of Conversation Notifications and Bubbles help put conversations front and center and give users quick access to the people they care about most. If your app offers any sort of communication, even through support channels, you should consider moving towards this new pattern. Chatting with a support representative while continuing to use your device makes the experience feel much more personal, like talking to a friend.

Week 2 - Machine Learning (June 22-26)

We just wrapped up week 2 and here’s what we learned. 

Machine Learning capabilities in Android 11 have been updated quite substantially.  The Neural Networks API (NNAPI) has been updated to version 1.3.  With this comes the expansion of operations and controls available to developers. 

  • Quality of Service APIs support priority and timeout for model execution.
  • Memory Domain APIs reduce memory copying and transformation for consecutive model execution.
  • Expanded quantization support, added signed integer asymmetric quantization where signed integers are used in place of float numbers to enable smaller models and faster inference.

Additionally, the Face Detection portion of MLKit now ships with Google Play services, so you can use it without increasing the size of your APK.

There is an early access program for MLKit as well that lets developers preview upcoming MLKit features.  There are two new APIs that are now a part of this program.

  • Entity Extraction - Detect entities in text and make them actionable.  There is support for phone numbers, addresses, payment numbers, tracking numbers, date/time, and more.
  • Pose Detection - Low-latency pose detection supporting 33 skeletal points, including hands and feet tracking.

There is also now custom models that can be used with the Image Labeling and Object Detection and Tracking APIs.  This allows for more tailored solutions that let you build an implementation from scratch instead of relying on Google’s models.

MLKit has almost infinite possibilities in terms of business functionality.  A good example is using OCR to translate a camera feed to real text.  Additionally, the project that Rocketeers completed as part of the #AndroidDevChallenge is a great example of practical functionality offered by the MLKit.  The project, named Path Finder, is meant to help people with visual impairments navigate complex situations by identifying and calculating trajectories of objects moving in their path.  Those trajectories are then process and audio instructions are given to the user. You can learn more about Path Finder here.

Week 3 - Privacy and Security (June 29-July 3)

We just wrapped up week 3 and here’s the summary of what we learned. 

Android is evolving as a privacy-centric Operating System and protecting user’s privacy is a shared responsibility between the Android system, the users and apps.  

There are many new features in Android 11 that focus on giving control of data to the users: 

  • One Time Permissions 
    Evolving permissions to give more control by allowing user to grant permission for one-time use only.  App developers will be more successful getting access to the user’s location because users know that it’s only for something right now. 
  • Background location request 
    It is now far more difficult to request background location permissions.  It must be done through a system UI popup, not an app custom UI dialog. No company should plan on being able to track users while their app is in the background, except in very limited scenarios.  
  • Permissions auto-reset 
    Android will automatically revoke all runtime permissions for apps that aren't used frequently. Users will be notified of this through a notification. If you follow the recommended UX patterns, your app will re-request the permission again the next time the user launches it.  
  • Google Play system updates 
    This was introduced in Android 10 and the main benefit of this new update approach is to increase the modularity and granularity of platform subsystems within Android so the core OS components can be updated  without needing a full OTA update from your phone manufacturer. For app developers, this means that they can use the latest features with even more confidence! 
  • BiometricPrompt API 
    The new BiometricPrompt API can be used to specify the biometric authenticator strength required by an app to unlock or access sensitive parts of the app. For apps where a biometric login is more about convenience than security, the restrictions can be a little looser. 
  • Identity Credential API 
     This will allow new use cases such as mobile drivers licenses, National ID, and Digital ID. In the new releases, this is being done by having the data stored offline in a secure environment with using security hardware to secure and control access to the data. 

From a security perspective, the Android 11 release is all about fit and finish what’s already started in the previous Android releases. Android 11 focused on making sure the internals got plenty of attention and includes the followings:  

  • Project Mainline (introduced in Android 10): a critical vulnerability was fixed in the media decoding subsystem 
  • New modules were added, and the security properties of existing ones are maintained 
  • Biometrics API mentioned above, where different levels of security can use the biometric authentication in different ways. 

With better security and privacy controls, apps can instill even more trust with their users. It also keeps them from worrying about a rogue app on their phone that may be collecting information that they are unaware of, or more likely have just forgotten about. Google is taking a stronger stance on security and privacy, and making good privacy practices the recommended default behavior, instead of only providing the option and letting users decide.  

Week 4 - Android 11 Compatibility (July 6th -July 10th) 

This week the android team is focusing on app compatibility. 

As users update their phones to the latest version of android, or buy new phones, changes required by the newer OS can break existing applications. App compatibility is the idea that an application works correctly with the version of android on the user’s phone. 

For a certain amount of time, Google allows app developers to avoid many of changes required by the newer Android OS by “targeting” an older operating system. Thereby ignoring many of the changes required.   

With Android 11, Google seems to be taking a more aggressive stance on requiring apps to support the newer android system features. However, they are also adding some new features to make the transition to Android 11 easier. 

Specifically: 

  • Google strongly implied that they intend to make all apps in the Play Store support Android 11 more quickly than for previous OS versions 
  • For at least the first year, instead of having to support all the Android 11 changes, the Play Store will allow apps to “opt in” or “opt out” of specific features individually. * 
  • Google is adding a “compatibility framework” to allow developers to turn breaking changes off and on individually using the developer settings on their devices 
  • They are also adding features to automated testing and the software where developers write their code to make it easier to test OS changes 
  • *Not all features will be toggle-able. For instance, many privacy and security changes will be required of all apps immediately.    
  • Google is formalizing this split by markings some features as “affecting all apps” vs “based on targetSDK” 

The detailed and technical list of changes to the OS is available at:
https://developer.android.com/preview/behavior-changes-all

With the newly added process and tools in Android 11 that helps with compatibility testing, it’ll be easier to make sure the existing apps will continue to work properly after system update which will greatly help with user experience through device OS upgrades.  

And as mentioned above, while Google doesn’t typically force apps to support the latest OS version, Google has strongly implied that they intend to make all apps in the Play Store support Android 11 more quickly (especially for privacy and security related features introduced in Android 11.) Thus, it’s important to plan for the existing apps to comply accordingly.  

Week 5 - Languages (July 13-17)  

This week the android team is focusing on Languages.  

Last year, Google announced that Kotlin is the preferred language for writing Android code. In Android 11, Async tasks are now deprecated and Kotlin coroutines should be used to handle asynchronous operations, for a few key reasons:  

  • Prevent memory leaks 
  • Multiple instances on one thread 
  • Flow is built on the foundation of Coroutines and inherits some of the best properties such as cancelation, structure concurrency, exception transparency 
  • Shard flow is coming, sharing a single flow between multiple subscribers. Useful when a flow is costly to make or you want to save resources by sharing 

For projects utilizing C and C++ as the programming languages, Android 11 includes the following solutions to address memory corruption bugs:  

  • Use-after-free, double-free and heap buffer make up 65% of high/critical bugs for both chrome and android 
  • HWASan (Hardware_Assisted Address Sanitizer) is a replacement for ASan (Address Sanitizer)  
Use-after-free bug detection with memory tagging.

Also, in Android Studio 4.0, Native libraries are now exposed the same way Java libraries are using Android Archives:  

Native libraries

Prefab is the tool that facilitates all of this by performing compatibility checks to find suitable libraries for build configuration.  

Android Gradle Plugin 4.0 now supports certain Java APIs and third-party libraries such as the followings that were once only available on newer android devices:  

  • New Java Time API prevents concurrency issues and works with time zones much easier 
  • Streams allow for functional style operations on collections but do not store data or modify the underlying data structure 
  • New additions to Map, Collection and comparator interfaces 
  • New methods for AtomicInteger, AtomicLong and AtomicReference 
  • Bug fixes for ConcurrentHashMap, thread safe compared to HashMap 

For end users, the enhancements included in the Android 11 Languages will greatly improve user experience as well. General performance is improved with Kotlin Coroutines, ensuring that even a complex UI is always responsive smooth. With additional support for APIs in the OpenJDK, it’s less likely that users will see crashes, even on devices that have been heavily customized by the manufacturer. The standardization by Google is resulting in a more robust and stable OS, leading to better user experience and higher satisfaction. 

Week 6 - Android Jetpack (July 20-24)  

We just wrapped up week 6 and here’s what we learned.                                       

Android 11 Jetpack updates help provide more efficient ways to create better applications. The new features include: 

  • Hilt – A new Android library, built on top of the popular DI library Dagger, that simplifies dependency injection in your app. Hilt allows you to focus on just the important parts of defining and injecting bindings without worrying about managing all the setup and wiring usually required. Hilt provides containers for every Android class in your project and managing their lifecycles automatically for you. 
     
  • Paging Library Updates – The Paging 3 API provides support for things you would usually need to implement yourself when loading data. Better error handling, easier transformations of data(map, filter, etc.), and support for common features (list separator, headers, footers, etc.). Paging 3 is backwards compatible with Paging 2 so you have the option to migrate to 3 over time. 
     
  • CameraX – A new library designed to help you develop camera apps easier that also carries support for older Android devices as well. CameraX comes with easier implementation, and consistency across 94% of Android devices starting with API 21. 

By utilizing the Android 11 Jetpack components, productivity can be increased, and more focus can be put on how to make the application unique as the common infrastructure code is provided by the Jetpack libraries. Take CameraX mentioned above as an example, it provides quite a few compatibility fixes to help make the developer experience consistent across many devices. Thus, adding camera capabilities to the app can be done without having to worry about device specific details such as the form factor or camera configurations! 

Week 7 - Android Developer Tools  (July 27-31)  

We just wrapped up week 7 and here’s what we learned.  

This week is all about Android development tools for different development phrase including Design, Coding & Deployment, Build, Emulator, and Profiling. Some highlights: 

  • Layout Inspector - allows for debugging like chrome dev tools. This allows you to inspect the hierarchy and all view attributes included ones inherited by parents.  
     
  • Database Inspector included in android studio 4.1. The inspector allows you to make changes and see them live if the app is running. The inspector also lets you test pure SQL queries within the inspector rather than in the code, allowing you to create queries you want faster.  
     
  • Compose Design Tools - currently available in Canary channel. Allowing for testing UI with sample data and comparing different types of configurations.  
     
  • Other Android studio improvements Dagger and Hilt navigation support has been improved in AS 4.1 and 4.2 along with improved system tracing.  

Having a good understanding of the developer tools available to the development team in the latest versions of Android Studio will greatly help increase team productivity in all different phases of the app development workflow. Take the Database Inspector feature mentioned above as an example, it allows developers to modify data in app database in a way that is not much harder than editing a spreadsheet and prevents requiring using a 3rd party solution for database inspection. This significantly reduces the time and effort needed for app database inspection/manipulation, improving efficiency and help developers build even better apps!

Does a Raise or Remote Work Sound Better?

Telecommuting is emerging as a coveted perk. Workers and their companies see the benefits, but how will they feel in 2021?

Dick Black still remembers the guy he worked with years ago who logged on remotely from a beach in Bali.

“He’s like, ‘I got strong Wi-Fi,’ ” Mr. Black, a 38-year old senior engineering manager, recalls. By late February, Mr. Black was ready to give the work-from-anywhere dream his own shot. He asked his employer, tech firm Twilio, if he could move from his Denver office to the Atlanta area.

Bottle Rocket’s Calvin Carter: ‘We estimate we are 10% more efficient working from wherever.’

Bottle Rocket CEO & Founder Calvin Carter discussed with Dallas Innovates how the company is adapting to the future of work and business. Carter provides insights on the company’s new “work from wherever” model and how it’s maintaining a collaborative spirit in a Q&A.

Dallas Innovates: How is Bottle Rocket adapting to COVID-19 and changing the future of work?

Calvin Carter: Bottle Rocket has always been an innovator. A decade ago, we pioneered the concept of working cross-functionally versus departmentally in pods surrounded by whiteboards, which later became the norm for many companies around the globe.

But like everyone else when COVID-19 hit, we shifted to a work-from-home mandate to protect employees and their families. What we quickly learned is that we don’t have to all be under the same roof to do game-changing work for our clients, and we don’t all have to sit together to maintain our normal level of collaboration and cross-functional work. Through the use of technology, advanced tools, and revamped processes, we have been able to continue “business as usual” while still delivering immense value to our customers. This led to our new future we call “work from wherever.” To us, this isn’t unique to this time. We are always challenging and iterating on everything in our business. The pandemic simply forced us to embrace a new way of working much faster, and after just a few short months, we knew that the time was right to make this a permanent shift.

What I feel is different from other work-from-home announcements is the very specific and purposeful use of the word “wherever.” Wherever indicates the sense of place is less important than some other element. In this case, we are sending a strong, fresh message that the “work” is more important than the place the work is done. This honors the employee as a person of craft and skill, and trusts them to act as the adult they are to make the best decisions based on all the valid information they have, which includes ways of working that are uniquely effective to them. Wherever could mean at home, in our amazing office space, across the country, or outside in a park with an internet connection.

We estimate we are 10% more efficient working from wherever. This has allowed people to trade the stressful, expensive, and time-consuming commute to more time working productively or spending time with friends and family. This doesn’t mean we’re getting rid of our office. Physical interaction is still very important, but it’s not the most important thing.

DI: How do you maintain your sense of culture and collaboration, and continue to grow as a team through remote work?

CC: I’ve been nothing but impressed with our team’s ability to really come together during this challenging time. I believe our success can be attributed to our balanced focus on tools, processes, people, and culture. We’ve leaned on many terrific tools such as Slack, Zoom, the Atlassian suite, and Salesforce, but we’ve also brought on many new ones in the past few months, including Miro (virtual whiteboards which are simply awesome), Lattice (employee engagement), Teem (office space reservations and hoteling), and VacationTracker.io (vacation management), that have helped us manage our business efficiently and effectively.

I define culture as the space between the people in an organization. It’s how you treat one another, speak to one another, honor promises, socialize, and empathize. That space is just as important in a work-from-wherever environment, but that space is redefined to not just be in person, but through a whole host of other experiences that we are able to make possible by properly leveraging technology and ensuring our staff is always connecting with one another. We have open-sourced our culture and invite ideas from all corners of the company. Leveraging the power of diversity, we can ideate and execute much better ideas than more traditional organizations.

DI: What trends are you seeing in the types of apps companies are creating (or additions to existing apps) as a result of COVID-19?

CC: The types of requests we are receiving from clients is really not too different from how it was pre-COVID-19. However, the reason why clients are coming to us has changed dramatically. Pre-COVID-19, digital was seen as a competitive differentiator for most of our clients. Since the pandemic, digital delivery of services has become table stakes.

In a future world greatly changed by COVID-19, being able to conduct simple actions digitally is a requirement, and finding points of differentiation will require more continual investment and dedicated focus from the entire executive leadership group. In this new world, we are seeing three main types of customers.

First, there are the digitally mature. These organizations have made prior investments in digital and have established digital customers; think Chick-fil-A or Chipotle. Chick-fil-A moved on mobile ordering long before it was an industry standard. Chipotle has easily been able to flex the power of its digital platform and has seen 50% growth in its loyalty enrollment and digital sales soaring 80.8%.

Next, there are those that were early-stage digital—firms that had started to digitize backend processes and develop customer-facing digital touchpoints. These companies have had a low rate of digital purchases as a percentage of total sales (less than 5%). These firms can compete and drive rapid acquisition of net-new digital customers and retain those customers with relevant experiences and digitally delivered services. In order to do this, however, these companies will need to find a way to prioritize significant spending on customer-facing digital experiences in a time when every single dollar spent is scrutinized by the entire leadership team.

Last, there are the disrupted firms, organizations that had established business models that were performing well before COVID-19 and now have to completely reinvent themselves. When is the next time you plan on going to a music festival or live event with densely packed crowds? Firms in this camp also include discount retailers with variable inventory that doesn’t make sense for digital, such as Nordstrom Rack or TJ Maxx.

Within this camp, we are seeing two variants: those that have been disrupted by COVID-19 and consumer behavior changes (i.e., movie theaters, live events, discount retail, etc.), and those who are utilizing the pandemic as a time to disrupt themselves (think Frito-Lay’s recent launch of Snacks.com). Either way, digital is a journey that requires years of maturation, and these firms have to adapt, test, and learn at light speed.

I realize I may be biased, but what I’m saying is the truth—there is likely nothing more important to the survival of your firm than to invest in meeting customers where they are. It’s not just about COVID-19, it’s about very clear and quantifiable changes in consumer behavior that are mandating changes in the way business is universally conducted. Digital is a tool; how you use that tool to accomplish goals, retain existing customers, and attract new customers is what will determine the winners and losers in this new-world order.

This Q&A is part of an ongoing series of Dallas Regional Chamber interviews with representatives from our member organizations about how they are facing the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bottle Rocket Engineers Create Finalist App for Google’s Android Challenge

The Android Challenge reemerged in December 2019 with a new global ask of the developer community. The goal was to create helpful innovations powered by on-device machine learning (ML). Not ones to shy away from any challenge, a team of Bottle Rocket engineers, along with our friends at Google, collaborated to create a one-of-a-kind app that not only earned them a finalist position in the Android Challenge, but also solved a key issue for the visually impaired.

The goal of the Path Finder app is to help users navigate through public environments and all the unknowns surrounding them. Leveraging the ML capabilities of Android, Path Finder helps people with visual impairments by identifying and calculating the trajectories of objects moving in their path. Custom alerts then inform the user of how to avoid these obstacles and what actions they can safely make.

"What started as a simple idea among Rocketeers was selected as one in a handful of finalists out of over 500 applicants," says Colin Shelton, Lead Android Engineer. "Our ML club is always looking for new opportunities to flex our technical chops and experiment with technology in new ways and this challenge was the perfect opportunity to do just that while also doing something good for the world."

The app brings together object detection and depth mapping and uses TensorFlow Lite to calculate distances of surrounding objects. It is designed to augment the user's experience, share information, and give support, not overwhelm them in difficult situations. Both audible and haptic feedback are part of alert system, while a range of pitches and frequencies communicate each object's distance and direction. Audio patterns, like Morse Code, are then layered and combined for sharing further information. The app helps visually impaired users gain the advantage of foresight, making public environments easier to navigate.

"I am so impressed with this team of engineers and other Rocketeers who worked hard to produce the Path Finder app," says Calvin Carter, Bottle Rocket's Founder and CEO. "It's proof that a small group of committed and passionate people all leaning in the same direction can achieve big things together."

The Path Finder app is currently featured among other finalists in a curated ML collection by Google. Download the app here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.br.ml.brpathfinder.
