Google Australia likes to refresh their advertising for Android from time to time and they’ve published a couple of new advertisements onto their YouTube channel which show off Android and some of the features – new and old – on the Nexus 6P, as well as what appears to be the Galaxy S6 Edge +.
There’s two videos that have been added a full length, minute and a quarter long video called Android: Ready for You, and a shorter more TV-friendly 30-second ad called Android: Free-Wheeling You. Both videos show off Android features like Music, Photos – including that smart burst feature that lets you snap 30fps then choose to create animations or collages from the resulting stream as well as Google Play Music, though the longer version shows Google Now cards and search as well.

What struck me about the videos is that while the Nexus 6P makes an appearance, it’s the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge + that stood out as the focus in both. It’s an interesting twist, but with the popularity of Samsung handsets, especially the retail appeal of the Edge models, it’s not surprising.
The ads are pretty good, so sing out if you’ve seen these on Australian broadcast TV.
