[Update: Live in Pie with ADB] A future version of Android will have a manual device backup option

Monday, October 8th, 2018

Google has offered some rudimentary backup functionality in Android since the 2.0 days, but it improved backup functionality in 6.0 Marshmallow. However, you still have to trust that the Google Drive backups are happening as there are no user-facing controls. That's going to change in a future version of Android, though.

This news comes from Google itself in an issue tracker thread, and for once it wasn't the product of an internet mob adding hundreds of stars.

Google Drive for Android is about to get a Material Design refresh

Friday, October 5th, 2018

Google is continuing to slowly update all of its apps to a refreshed Material Design style (MD 2.0, to some) and the latest product to get this treatment is Google Drive on Android — the web version has already been updated. It's not actually live yet, but the code is there ready to go, so we can expect it to roll out to users soon.

The screenshots come courtesy of XDA Developers in collaboration with Kieron Quinn, and there aren't too many surprises in view of Google's other recent redesigns.

Google Drive is getting an AI-powered ‘Priority’ page, currently available in beta

Wednesday, September 19th, 2018

Google rolled out Quick Access in Drive back in 2016 as a way to surface the files you're most likely to need. After debuting on Android, the feature later launched on the web. The latest Drive feature is an evolution of Quick Actions—it's called Priority. This feature is live in beta for select G Suite customers, but it will eventually come to everyone.

The Priority page is accessible via the left-side navigation menu.

This doesn't replace Drive, mind you, it's just the new name for the various price tiers associated with Google's products, as we noted in the original announcement post.

Update Notes for YouTube, Duo, Drive, the Google app, and more (September 16, 2018)

Sunday, September 16th, 2018

Every week, I examine somewhere in the neighborhood of a hundred app updates while looking for changes. The most interesting things turn into APK Teardowns or Download posts. Many of the remaining updates are unremarkable, amounting to a few bug fixes, routine updates to libraries, or even just pixel-level adjustments to layouts and images. However, there are usually a few updates that land somewhere in between. I don't want to spam readers with dozens of short posts, but I hate to ignore things that people might want to know about, so I'm going to wrap up the leftovers for a little weekend reading and call it Update Notes.

Google is sending $5 Play credits to some users prematurely invited to Google One

Thursday, September 13th, 2018

The rollout of Google One was complicated. The service was announced and the app made available for download in May. Emails went out saying that the service was available to everyone in the US in the middle of August, but that still wasn't the case by the end of the month. Now, Google is trying to make amends by sending some users affected by the messy launch $5 Google Play credits.

Google One will expand to Argentina, Brazil, and Mexico in the coming weeks, more regions later

Wednesday, August 29th, 2018

Google One's launch has been fraught with delays and pseudo-announcements. The unifying storage service was introduced in May, but only select users got invited to try it out, then Google re-announced it again a few weeks ago, saying it was available to everyone in the US. But we all know that just meant it was starting to be available to all. Now comes the news that One is finally stepping outside the borders of the USA and going south to Mexico, Brazil, and Argentina.

[Update: Still waiting] Google One is open to everybody in the US starting today

Tuesday, August 28th, 2018

Google One, Google's new cloud storage management and product support service, has had a strangely protracted rollout. It was announced all the way back in May, and showed up on the Play Store shortly thereafter. It wasn't long until invites started going out to a select few, but now, in mid-August, some users still don't have access to it. That's changing, though, as Google has announced that "people in the U.S.
