Google Backup & Sync now works again with HEIF images

Sunday, April 22nd, 2018

Google's Backup & Sync desktop app, formerly known as the Google Drive client, has received several major updates lately. It added advanced file syncing controls in December, and NAS support in February. Google has now released another update, with the major change being a fix for syncing High Efficiency Image File Format (HEIF/HEIC) pictures.

At some point in the past, backed up HEIF images stopped being visible in Google Photos - they could only be located in Drive.

[Update: Google is working on a fix] Downloading Motion Photos via Google’s Backup and Sync is broken for some

Downloading Motion Photos via Google’s Backup and Sync is broken for some

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

For many people, especially those of us here at Android Police, Google's various backup tools are an integral part of our daily workflow. Frankly, I'd have to entirely restructure how I do things without the convenience of Google Photos and Google Drive/Backup and Sync. For some, the combination of those two services isn't working as expected when it comes to Motion Photos, and backup synchronization to a desktop fails for those MVIMG-labeled images. 

This isn't the first time Motion Photos have introduced problems with Google Drive.

Google Drive is getting AI-powered organization for shared files

Monday, March 5th, 2018

Google Drive tends to pick up a lot of shared files, especially if your place of business uses G Suite. The "Shared with Me" section can end up rather messy as a result, but Google is now looking to clean it up with the help of artificial intelligence. In the coming days, Drive will begin guessing which files you want to open.

According to Google, searching for shared content by owner is the most popular way of finding things.

Google Drive File Stream update adds bandwidth limit settings, sync pause, and more

Saturday, February 24th, 2018

The Google Drive desktop client isn't very great (at least on Windows), and if you want to access a file, it has to be stored on your computer at all times. Google announced a new client called 'Drive File Stream' last year, which adds all your files to your computer, but only downloads the data when you want to open something (similar to OneDrive on Windows 8). Unfortunately, Drive File Stream is only available to G Suite users, so us normal people can't try it out.

Tuesday, February 13th, 2018

Version 3.14 of Google Photos just started rolling out a little earlier today. This one doesn't appear to have any new features or major changes, but it might possibly be leaving behind some older versions of Android. This update could also be preparing to launch the Favorites feature spotted in a previous teardown. Looking further into the APK's resources, there are also signs of more options related to Shared Libraries. And finally, Austin's Mysteryer feature takes yet another turn.

Google Drive users can now comment on MS Office files, PDFs, and images

Wednesday, February 7th, 2018

Google Drive is pretty great, as long as your files are in Google's format. You can certainly open other types of documents, like Microsoft Office files or PDFs, but you can't do much more than look at them (or convert them to Google Docs format). If you regularly work with non-Docs files, you'll be happy to hear that you can now comment on more types of documents.

Drive users can now add comments to Word, PowerPoint, Excel, PDF, and image files.

Monday, February 5th, 2018

It's been almost a year since Google accidentally pushed out the first buggy release of Backup and Sync, which was officially announced a few months later and later replaced the old Google Drive client last July. Since then, Google's been pushing out new fixes and features for it at a steady clip, with around one a month. This weekend saw another update to v3.39, with the addition of NAS support, optional Apple Photos Library metadata inclusion/exclusion, and a pile of improvements and fixes.
