After using the characters in their latest commercials, Google updates Androidify to V2.0

Androidify
We’ve all had fun creating our own custom Android characters with Androidify, we’ve even seen Google use them in their latest commercials – one of which apparently showed off the Nexus 6. Google has updated the app to version 2.0 and there’s a heap of new accessories and fashion items, as well as sharing options and animations to check out.

The app is pretty different to when we last used it, so if you haven’t installed it for a while it’s time to check it out again. There’s a whole heap of new accessories, like phones, (Android Wear) watches and desserts (Lollipops!) to customise your character with. Google also lets you breathe life into your character with new actions now available which let your Android move, and you can share all these new characters as animated GIFs…or emoticons.

The Androidify.com website also gets some love, with the ability to upload your creations to the site and share them with the world. If Google likes them, you may even see them in a new Android TV commercial. That’s right, some new ones could be coming soon.

The full Changelog from the update can be found below:

  • Pick a move and watch your Android character laugh, dance, cheer, rock out, or all sorts of other moves.
  • Share your characters as emoticons & GIFs.
  • Share your characters on Androidify.com and they could get picked to be in an Android TV commercial or YouTube video.
  • Lots of new clothes & accessories to choose from.
  • A new and improved UI.
  • Translated into English, Japanese, Korean, French and German.

The app is rolling out now, so you should be notified to update the app shortly. Check it out, it’s a lot of fun.

The app was not found in the store. 🙁

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Missing from your article, this new version is portrait mode only, and it breaks some droids created with earlier versions.
