Google I/O 2015: New Android developer tools announced

Jason Titus discussed the development lifecycle of apps with Google, including news that developers can now have their own homepage on the Google Play Store

Android Studio 1.3 Developer Preview

Android Studio 1.3 was announced with faster build speeds and a new memory profiler.

There will also be full developer support and debugging support for C and C++.

Cloud Test Lab is also a new announcement, which will automatically run tests on behalf of app developers for the 20 most-used devices. Cloud Test Lab will then send a report back to the developer with crash reports and other information. This will be available soon.

Cloud Messaging is now giving users the chance to subscribe to notifications from particular apps or shows so a developer can send out a single notification to all subscribers.

Universal App Campaigns will be automated in a few months time. This is a system that allows Google to control the ads on your app after you’ve set a cost limit, leaving you to concentrate on further development.

Developers will now be able to have a homepage on the Google Play Store, allowing companies with more than one app have a home for all their products, driving loyalty between developers and users.
