Icons
FAB Buttons

And also snips of code such as:

  • android:name=”com.google.android.gms.games.ui.client.videos.ClientPrepareRecordingActivity
  • android:name=”com.google.android.gms.games.videos.PREPARE_RECORDING_ACTIVITY“/>
  • android:name=”com.google.android.gms.games.ui.restricted.videos.RestrictedVideoCapturedActivity
  • android:name=”com.google.android.gms.games.VIEW_VIDEO_CAPTURED“/>

Conclusion

Google seems to be getting in the market of content capture just like the iOS, PS4 and the Xbox One have done except they’re centering it around Play Games over have support for services outright. Hopefully this isn’t limited to phones and tablets and would make the most sense as part of the 10 foot experience on Android TV.
