Google I/O audio is making my Home freak out. (And the TWiT common-taters have triggered my Alexa a few times as well.)

"Lens" looking interesting - integrating vision through the camera into Assistant. Works with Photos, too.

The "superchats" demo somehow made them seem even creepier than the first sounded.

If they mention how many users they have one more time they're going to start sounding like POTUS talking about Electoral Votes.

Dang. I ended up repairing three phones at around 1:30, so I missed most of the thing. I'll have to get the run down in a bit. Thanks for the tidbits.

Wasn't so very much exciting user-facing stuff this time.

Also, I did get the (mo' memory, no problems version of the) Moto G 5 for the kid and started setting it up last night. So far I like the Family Link stuff. It lets me approve any app installs. It lets me set time limits (total allowed + enforced bedtime). It lets me see where the kid (or the phone, anyway) is at any time. All-in-all seems a decent batch of training-wheely tools for a parent to supervise a new user.

An iOS version of the supervise-y app just came out, so the wife can see/manage this stuff as well, which is nice.

Couple caveats: 1 - at present, one has to create a brandy-new login to work with Family Link. 2 - this login won't work to access a Chromebook. (I presume that the tools to manage/limit access don't exist on that platform, so Google disallows any login at all to close off the potential giant loophole.)

Quite pleased with Family Link so far. Haven't used all the limitations available, but good to know that they're available.

This is my (not the kid's) phone - OP3T. Any idea why "System Data" is taking up ~1/2 of my 64 gigaroonies?



A bunch of that has to be reclaimable junk. Is factory reset the way to go? Would like to avoid having to re-install and re-set-up all my stuff if possible.

Can you try rebooting to recovery and wiping your cache and dalvik? Second, in your apps settings, you can possibly sort by storage space usage. It may alternatively be located in the storage settings as well.

Interesting. It seems that data saved within apps (music in Google Music, podcasts in Pocket Casts) is categorized as "System Data", not as "Apps". (Was able to see this under settings/storage/apps.) Clearing out the junk there brought System Data down a good 11 Gb. Thanks!
