Google’s web notifications widget will be discontinued on March 7, 2019

Wednesday, February 6th, 2019

If you read the title of this post and didn't really understand what it was about until you saw the screenshot, you're not alone. Most of us on the team had to do a double check when we caught the news because we didn't immediately recall what this web notification widget really was. But now that we do, we're heartbroken about the news... not!

The widget showed up when you tapped that bell icon near your avatar image in the toolbar of any Google site.

Thursday, January 17th, 2019

In a busy week of updates, Google Photos is joining the pack with the v4.8 release. As is fairly usual, the visible changes appear to be limited mostly to minor tweaks to wording.

Pixel 3’s Top Shot can choose a better photo than the one you took, and here’s how it works

Thursday, December 20th, 2018

Google's Pixel 3 and 3 XL have some of (if not the) best cameras of the year, and paired with that generally impressive performance are a handful of pretty nifty software features. One of them, called Top Shot, makes those great photos even better by helping out when you make a mistake and snap a photo just a bit too early or too late. And while we knew a little bit about how Top Shot worked, there were pretty large gaps in our knowledge.

Google Photos bumps album limit up to 20,000 pictures and videos

Wednesday, December 19th, 2018

Live Albums, announced in early October of this year, offers Google Photos users an easy way to create albums that automatically add new photos of specific people and pets. Shortly after it was announced, however, it became clear that, for many users, the 10,000 photo limit on private albums was far too low. Thankfully for those users, Google has now raised the private album limit to match the shared album limit at 20,000 images.

Google Photos will no longer provide unlimited storage for unsupported video files

Tuesday, December 11th, 2018

When Google rolled out the revamped Photos service in 2015 with a bold promise: free photo and video uploads from your phone as long as you let Google compress your data a bit. Google is making a slight change to that deal now. As of December 6th, videos in unsupported formats are no longer included in the free storage deal.

The only indication of this change is on the Google support site, where someone added the following notice.

Tip: Google Drive tells you if backed up photos and videos are using your storage quota

Friday, December 7th, 2018

Google Photos makes it easy to back up every photo and video you capture on your phone, but some of those files might eat into your Google storage allowance. You can let Google compress files or get a Pixel if you want unlimited storage, but it can be hard to keep track of all those files. If you want to know which files are taking up your space, Google Drive has the answer (both the app and website).

Google Lens now has an album shortcut to search photos

Tuesday, December 4th, 2018

Google Lens made its debut in the Google Photos app on select devices a while back, but now it's available everywhere. You can still search from the Photos app, but Google just added a new shortcut to make it easier to scan your photos. From Lens, just tap the album button at the top of the screen, and you're all set.
