Facebook has started rolling out a more diverse set of emojis to its Messenger service on the web, iOS and Android. 
Facebook Messenger has always allowed you to use the diverse emoji offered via your smartphone or computer. Now, these diverse emojis are baked into Messenger. 
With this new update, users will be able to access over 1,500 new emojis — 100 of which were designed “to better reflect gender and skin tones” with gender-agnostic options and multi-colored emojis.

“We’re diversifying the genders to create a more balanced mix that’s more representative of our world,” Facebook wrote in a blog post. “Now, using Messenger emojis, you’ll see a female police officer, runner, pedestrian, surfer and swimmer for the very first time, and we’ll keep rolling these out.”
Whatsapp already has an update like this and now Facebook Messenger has joined in on the fun and will let you set the skin color you prefer your default emojis to be. 
Another significant aspect of this roll-out is the placement of emojis within the Messenger app. Before, the emojis on Facebook Messenger’s web app were buried in the back. In the iOS app, they were virtually nonexistent.
Now, the Messenger composer will include an emoji picker located on the left side.
So there you have it, enjoy your new Facebook update and have fun with the new emojis

Space conservation has always been an issue with phones or devices in general, that's why we have Hard drives i guess. 
But Hard Drives are for your laptops, how about your phones? You could get a large memory card perhaps but space will still run out eventually, that's just how it is.
But Google to the rescue! The idea with Google Play's new proposed feature is to help you conserve space. You know how annoying it is to want to download a new app and meet that annoying 'Not Enough Space' message, and then you have to go to your app manager to start manually removing apps that you either didn't even know you still had or had downloaded for a specific reason and are no longer using.
The Play Store plans on introducing a new Uninstall Manager feature that will intelligently suggest neglected apps and games that you should delete if you don’t have enough space available. 
From the looks of things, the play store will show you apps that you haven't used in a while and from all indications you will be able to delete the offending apps from that menu.
There’s no word as to when this new feature will roll out to everyone, but it looks like it will start sometime soon and when it does, we'll let you know.

Google will not be making their own Nexus phones according to CEO Sundar Pichai who said this to Walt Mossberg during an interview at the Code Conference. 
Pichai did say that Google will be more involved in the design of future Nexus devices, though even with that Nexus handsets and tablets won’t really offer the full Android experience.
“Our plan is still to work with OEMs to make phones,” Pichai said about Google’s involvement in Nexus hardware. But the company will be “investing more effort” into overseeing Nexus products, and it’ll be more “opinionated” about Nexus phone design.
Nexus buyers are fans of the Nexus devices because they run an unadultrated version of Android, they are also the first to receive the latest updates from Google, including beta versions of upcoming major Android releases.
But from reports it seems Google will add various things on top of Android or Nexus devices. 
Google wants to according to Pichai “thoughtfully add more features on top of Android or Nexus phones,” as there’s plenty of “software innovation to be had.” 
Pichai kept his cards close to his chest and gave nothing away in terms of what kind of features Google would want to put on top of Android, or why these features won’t be included in stock Android in the first place.
So all we know is that new Nexus phones won't really have the pure android running on them anymore, which is somewhat of a shame.
