“Be Together. Not the Same.” Android’s new motto is pretty much perfect. It describes the dual nature of Android and it’s a great reminder that, at the end of the day, we’re all just tech fans no matter the brands or models we prefer.

Google’s last Android ad had cute animals, lots of them. But for this newest project, Google’s getting back to the funky Androidified characters first introduced in the days before Lollipop’s arrival.

Google’s Japanese team set up a mesmerizing rig comprising 300 Android phones and tablets, each with its own animated character, each singing their part in the ultimate Android chorus. The result is an exuberant interpretation of Ode to Joy, sang in a distinctly… Googley fashion.

If you happen to be in Tokyo, you can see the Android chorus for yourself at Omotesando Hills until this Sunday.

Now, how can I make this my ringtone?

    It would be legit if they sang the song in different languages in sync. It would show more diversity!

  • thereasoner

    Over at PCMag they have decided that the new Android slogan “Be together, Not the same” is a celebration of “fragmentation” not the obvious abundance of choice in hardware that Android users enjoy. What a bunch of morons!
