I changed my username, and I get the connectivity issues too. Had it also a day before I changed.
@Wood Man

Well I haven't changed my username, and I don't know if this is a connectivity issue, but when I tried to download an app (neutriNote) , it said it does not exist, we're working on fixing the connection something.. and the app disappeared from the marketplace.

The most likely explanation seems that the app was removed from labs.

Other than that I have no connectivity issues.

I haven't experienced any connection issues, it's just that labs gives me this error in the sidebar.

I realize that the source code isn't available yet... But I've tapped the link for it in the about section at least 4 times now before remembering that it's unavailable. Please either remove the link until it is available, or add a notice that its not available at release time. Even redirecting it to this thread would be better than a 404 page...

I just noticed that the news articles haven't been updated in two days in the XDA lab.
I cleaned cache and tried again but it's the same.
Verified on two separate phones.
Also there is no way to force refresh of that page by swiping down.

Same here, Neutrinote stable 1.9 disappearing, alpha 1.6.5 is fine (the app still shows up in search results).
Other than that, everything is fine.

We don't have the same issue.
In my case, it's not just a "connectivity" error message in navdrawer, I also can't download apps in Labs store (the download button spins forever). I've previously attached logs for this donwload issue HERE.. It began the same day I've changed my username.

Did you try to download apps from Labs store? If we have the same problem, I'm pretty sure you won't be able to do that.

Hmm, I almost never use the labs part... Checked now and the news didn't refresh and downloads didn't work.

The news refreshes fine for me.

Update: Sorry, I was mistaken.
The latest post is from two days ago, about software being the main part of the Pixels.

might that be because there are no new news posts? For me on website the newest one is the same as in app and that's 2days old.
Yes that's it. False alert news feed works fine. I can see a new one.

It would be really nice if Sent messages would show to whom it was sent, rather that who sent it. As it stands there is no way of knowing whom the message was sent to.
This would bring it in line with the web version.

I agree, but it's a limitation of the API (it doesn't have the sent alias). It's on our list of backend nice-to-haves but there's no timeline for it at the moment.

    12/31/20: Important update: XDA Labs if officially discontinued. Read about it here.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Hi everyone,

    We (at XDA) have been working on something. :eek:

    This is XDA Labs. The name isn't final, and this is not the "official" launch... but we are (quietly) giving you guys a chance to try it out so we can get some feedback. So....what is it?

    First and foremost, it's a speedy way to access the forums (ad-free!). You'll see a lot that's familiar with XDA One, because we merged the code into Labs and made a handful of much-needed improvements.



    Second, it's a new way to access all the Xposed modules you love.

    And third, it's a way to distribute apps-- and eventually all sorts of stuff that people upload to XDA. It is 100% pro-developer in that 1) we allow all types of apps (including stuff not allowed on Play), 2) we don't remove apps without warning and without communication to the developer, 3) we enable developers to sell apps, receiving 100% of the proceeds directly, 4) we accept Bitcoin payment, which is fast, easy, and low cost, and 5) we utilize alpha, beta and stable release channels so devs can have control in how they distribute apps to users. :highfive:



    If you are a developer and want to add your app, go here:
    https://labs.xda-developers.com/

    Labs is discontinued. Read about it here.

    Otherwise...use the app, and tell us what you think! Again, Labs is very much Beta right now so keep your expectations in check! :D

    FAQ
    Q: Where's the source!?!?
    Not available and no ETA. It's not up to us (the team behind Labs), so please don't ask as we're not the ones to answer.

    Q: Notifications seem a bit inconsistent or delayed! What gives?!
    Labs uses a very light-weight notification service that uses MQTT instead of Google Play Services. Due to the changes first found in M, Android has made Google Play Services the only way for apps to reliably get notifications. You can get around this by manually adding Labs to the "Don't Optimize" list in Settings -> Apps -> Special Access -> Battery optimization -> All apps. The term "Don't Optimize" is misleading, Labs won't drain your battery and you'll get notifications properly. Read more about it here.

    Q: How do I disable the Apps/Xposed part of the app? I only want forums!
    Right now you can't! We're looking into letting the user disable parts of the app, but in the meantime you can enable the XDA Forums launcher icon. When loading directly into the Forums none of the App/Xposed sections will be loaded into memory. See this post for more info.

    Q: Since this app is part-store and it won't be allowed on Play, how do I get updates?!
    Good question! Labs has OTA self-updates that will notify you when a new version is available.

    Q: I'm getting a Parse error when installing apps, what gives?
    This is a Package Installer issue. Check out a workaround here.

    Q: I have updates from GroovyAPKs/GoogleAPKs for apps I haven't even installed via Labs! What gives?!
    From the explanation in the app itself:
    In addition to indie apps, Labs also contains staged roll-out versions of popular big-name apps. This means you can get the latest release of Hangouts before it's available on Play for your device or country. Updating via Labs still lets you get future updates. You just get the newer version sooner. Yay!

    These staged roll-outs are snatched as soon as the roll-out begins and made available immediately in Labs. They're hand-picked by cyborgs at XDA (GroovyAPKs/GoogleAPKs) and are identical to the versions eventually pushed out on Google Play..
    You can block apps by clicking on the circle with a / slash through it above the Apps tab.

    Q: Can you change the paged layout of threads to endlessly scroll instead?
    Sorry, this change requires a substantial amount of backend work done first and as such is not planned for any time in the near future.

    Q: How can I add an App?
    Simply visit labs.xda-developers.com and login using your XDA username.

    Q: I'm an Xposed Mod dev, how do I add a banner, screenshots, etc to my mods?
    Xposed Mods are still added/edited on rovo89's repo.xposed.info. Once your Xposed Mod is added there, you can log into the Labs console to add a banner, screenshots and more to your mod!

    Q: How can I add my Wallpaper??
    We're working on expanding our dev console to support the upload and management of user submitted wallpapers.

    Q: I found a bug! Fix it!
    Yea yea, sure sure. First, if possible, download the latest debug build. Second, recreate your issue while capturing a log using logcat. Third, post a brief description of how to re-create your issue, with your device information and the log attached. It's that easy! EDIT: This has been roughly outlined in this post. Feel free to use it as a guide but do not ask support related questions on adb or how to capture logs.

    Hi folks, a quick update on some recent changes.

    We've successfully migrated the backend from Amazon to GCP. This includes an updated & more modern CI/CD that will improve the process to build/deploy the backend services. It also means we can scale and monitor those services better.

    The app itself is now also tied into a new build process which automatically signs and generates builds for testers. With that in place, we'll be able to get additional developers on board and have their contributions be merged in with proper testing to prevent regression issues.

    So what's next? Well, the notifications will finally be fixed and switched over from our homegrown MQTT setup to FCM.
    After that a slew of modernizations will be merged in to pave the way for some of the changes & additions you've been asking for over the past few years.

    This is all happening with the help of @Wood Man and I'll do my best to keep updating this thread as new builds are finally released and changes to the app itself are rolled out.

    Thanks for your patience and support <3

    Signatures are courtesy of @Faiz Malkani. Hey did you know he did the Labs icon/logo too? What a great guy!

    If you're viewing this in Labs, the NOPARSE tag won't be working and you'll see the image instead of the code. I realize the irony ;)
