Android Authority this week

It was the week when Lollipop began trickling out to eager Android fans. Google began feeding our Lollipop craving on Wednesday, when system images hit servers and the much anticipated OTAs began rolling out. (If you still haven’t got yours, our handy guide shows you how to sideload and skip the wait.) CyanogenMod announced plans for the Lollipop-based CM12, and several Lollipop-based ROMs hit XDA. The Nexus 6 finally went on pre-order on US carriers, and Sprint is actually shipping it. Google launched Messenger in the Play Store and kicked off Material updates to some of its apps. And finally, Samsung introduced Flow, its cross-device connectivity feature, and showed off the sensor-packed Simband.

Inside AA HQ

We’ve made it easier for AA readers to dig deep in our content, be it news posts, features, reviews, or videos. With infinite scrolling, the next post in the category loads up automatically when you scroll down to the end of a page. The idea is to remove as much friction as possible from viewing our website. And from at the analytics, it looks like you guys love it, with average time on site jumping 40 seconds since the addition of infinite scroll. Let us know what you think about this new format in the comments.

This was another blowout week in terms of traffic and engagement, and for that we thank you! Of course, it didn’t hurt that Lollipop began trickling out to users this week, and the interest is simply incredible. Google really hit this one out of the park. Plus, it’s great to see OEMs competing over updates, to the point that some Nexus users felt frustrated they weren’t first. That’s a (first world) problem we never thought we would have to deal with… Speaking of first world problems, make sure to check out Andrew’s hilarious piece on fanboys.
