    At this point have SMS and Google Voice baked in would be great. This way something like Go SMS pro would just work and not need a third party app like GV integration to work with Voice. I know we are supposed to have this in Hangouts, that though seems like a badly fading light ATM.

    Notification badges that say how many texts/mails/etc.
    Texts integrated into hangouts. A universal feature where texts are synced via Chrome and available on all platforms would be hard for competition to overcome.

    Auto on/off setting, native alert/notification profile options. Those are two of the things I miss most from my Blackberry. There are some options to do some of that in the play store, but none that work well enough on my S4.

    Some improvements in the notifications drawer. I can't think of what to add but something new would be nice. The drawer hasn't got anything new in a long time. Mini widgets for the drawer? I don't know.
    And by the way do you think kit kat will be available for the Nexus 4? Or a Nexus 5 exclusive at launch?
    Based on how Google has done things recently, one could guess that the release of the next version of Android (4.4) will coincide with the release of the next Nexus phone and 10" tablet, both due in late fall.

    Once that happens, factory images for all other recent Nexus devices should be available almost immediately, which at the very least will include the current Nexus 4, N10 and N7 (with OTAs rolled out a short time later). Some older Nexus devices may be supported as well, but it's hard to speculate past that.

    Yeah, universal message-count badges like in iOS would be great. It is nice that some of the launchers let you do this for selected applications, but it should be baked in to Android so it works for everything.

    Hangouts integrated into the stock messaging application.
    Just more optimizations. I want the one-all do-all applications that work smooth and flawlessly.

    Also having the ability to change the notification bar or nav buttons would be amazing.
    And I want the new moto X features with active notifications, and "ok google now"

    They wouldn't do that. That encourages piracy.

    If anyone on the Google or Android team is listening:

    1. SMS/Hangouts integration. I don't see why these are two seperate apps. Merging these two together gives Hangouts a wider possible userbase and also cleans up the cluttered Stock Android OS.

    2. Auto-home rotation. It's on the Nexus 7, why not any Nexus phones? Make it mandatory Google.

    And on a whole other level...

    3. For the love of God, make your own cheap phone network. You have the money, you definitely have the power to gain infrastructure. Screw Verizon and AT&T and Sprint. Bring on G-Mobile!

    Yes, I was surprised that Android didn't have a native text messaging app when I switched over. I didn't realize how much iOS had over Android in even the basic stuff. Bizarre. Hopefully they get a move on with Hangouts and allow me to send pictures and video without over compressing the damn files.

    Screen rotation by a gesture.
    I would like to be able to shut off auto screen rotation and use two fingers to rotate the screen.
    Also - A QUIT BUTTON!
    I hate that some apps require me to use the "back" button 20x to exit.
    Others (Browser & Chrome) have no way to quit.
    At least someone wrote a quit button ad on for Firefox.

    Oh, and release it for the older Samsung Galaxy S2 and S2 Skyrockets.

    Phablets too. My major reason for wanting to get a Phablet is muli-screen. Multi-screen windows might be too small on a 4.7" device though.

    Landscape for the home screen must be included, considering the leaked Nexus 5 has horizontal "Nexus" branding on the back!

    Only Samsung devices have multi-window support as of right now. There is talk and demos of Rockchip having a multi-window solution. This is one of those things that would really offer increased productivity and functionality on Android Tablets over iPads...

    Chromecast does not close, it absolutely blows Airplay away! They just need to release the SDK out of beta so developers can release apps. Then get it implemented directly into Android, GoogleTV, and third party hardware solutions. Once this is done you will understand why Chromecast is soooo much better then Airplay...

    Agreed!

    2. Auto-home rotation. It's on the Nexus 7, why not any Nexus phones? Make it mandatory Google.
    Just use a third party launcher (Apex or Nova). It's the first thing I do on every Android device I have simply for the advanced options and backup/restore functionality.

    And on a whole other level...

    3. For the love of God, make your own cheap phone network. You have the money, you definitely have the power to gain infrastructure. Screw Verizon and AT&T and Sprint. Bring on G-Mobile!

    I have Multi-screen on my S4 (5 inch screen) and NEVER use it but I would use it all the time on my Nexus 10...

    How about give us the ability to move all of the bloatware onto the SD card.
    And the ability to ignore certain apps in the update available notifications.
    I don't use a lot of the apps I am stuck with (thanks to AT&T and Google).
    I would like to be able to choose "Update All" and have it ignore the apps I choose to ignore.
    Or, put check boxes next to the apps in the update list (Google Play > My Apps) so I can
    select all the ones I want to update and say "Go"

    That was my impression when trying them in a store that the windows are too small to be useful on a S4. It just becomes barely usable on a Note 2.
