Google Photos v3.14 may have dropped support for Jelly Bean, prepares to launch Favorites, teases Austin’s Mysteryer feature [APK Teardown]

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.

Google Backup and Sync desktop client updated to v3.39, adds NAS support, Apple Photos metadata exclusion, and other fixes

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.

Google Backup & Sync for desktop gets a big update with ignored file types, photo/video-only sync, and more

Wednesday, December 13th, 2017

Google completely revamped the desktop Google Drive client this year with the move to Backup & Sync. The initial rollout was a bit of a mess with Google essentially breaking Drive for some people. It eventually worked all that out, and Backup & Sync has been running smoothly since then. There haven't been many feature additions, but there's a big one rolling out now. In the latest version, you have more control over which files are synced, and it's easier to add new folders to Drive.

The Moon is an all-seeing, levitating robotic eyeball that can control your home

Saturday, October 21st, 2017

We've seen levitating Bluetooth speakers and connected smart cameras before, but the Moon, a fully funded Indiegogo project, melds those technologies in a $209 ($330 at retail) floating robotic eyeball and base that can also act as a smart hub for your home.

The Moon, which comes from 1-Ring Inc., comprises a wide-angle lens embedded in a sphere made of plastic, aluminum, and rubber. When the smart camera is levitating above its base unit, it can give its owner a 360-degree scan of whatever room it's placed in.

Some Nougat users can’t back up their phones with Drive as it incorrectly shows “disabled by admin”

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

Another day, another inexplicable Google bug. This time we have Google Drive and backups in Android's settings. Some users, all of whom appear to be on Nougat, are seeing this message when they delve into their phone's settings to turn on backups to Google Drive: "Disabled by your admin."

You might think that this would happen if a G-Suite account is on the device and there's an admin blocking the feature, but nope.

Google will delete Android backups after two months of no device usage

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

We're all here because we use and like Android, but maybe you've been a little curious and you're thinking of trying out the new iPhone X for a bit. Well, make sure your iOS adventure doesn't last too long. It turns out Google won't keep your Android backups forever. In fact, it only gives you about two months.

Android has been able to sync some apps and data to a new phone since the Eclair days, but the system was vastly improved in Marshmallow.

Google’s Backup and Sync desktop app re-uploads backed up photos, fix coming in three weeks

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

Google just can't seem to get its act together with Google Drive. You may recall back in March that Google Drive for Windows automatically updated to 'Backup and Sync,' which broke syncing in the process. That was an unfinished version of the new Google Drive desktop app, which was officially announced in June. But now that the update is out, a major bug has become apparent.

The reason for the new 'Backup and Sync' name is because the app is no longer just for Google Drive file syncing.

Google announces big improvements to track changes and templates in G Suite

Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

Some changes are coming to Google Docs, Slides, and Sheets today, and they'll make a big impact on your workflow if you use track changes. G Suite users will be able to preview documents with changes, more easily accept changes, and more. There are also some new features in templates, which will probably affect fewer users. Still, it'll save time if your organization needs custom add-ons.

There are four new features in G Suite related to track changes.
