Android Messages can now send calendar files, in case you ever want to do that

Saturday, December 15th, 2018

I don't think anyone anywhere has ever said the phrase, "Let me text you that calendar file." Perhaps it was commonplace practice before the era of Google Calendar and other cloud-synced tools, but it's hard to see a case for texting calendars in 2018. Still, someone at Google must have thought that functionality would be useful, because it just arrived in Android Messages.

The latest update for Messages, version 3.9.039, includes "You can now share calendar file formats" in the changelog.

Chrome OS 71 includes new Camera app, improved app launcher, and more

Friday, December 14th, 2018

Chrome 71 arrived for desktop platforms and Android earlier this month, and now Chrome OS 71 is starting to roll out. This release includes a ton of new features, but many are limited to Google's Pixel Slate at the moment.

Most of the changes in this release are Pixel Slate features being ported upstream into Chrome OS. This includes Android P, the new native Google Assistant (the Pixelbook's Assistant runs in the Android layer), fingerprint scanner support, and Portrait Mode on the camera.

Google finally rolls the new Discover out to the Google beta app

Friday, December 14th, 2018

Google probably has an internal logic for rollouts that makes all the sense in the world to the developers running things. However, the process can seem bizarre and illogical on our end. Case in point: Google started turning the Feed into Discover back in October, but accounts on the Google beta app never got the update. Well, now they have.

We've gotten tips (and confirmed in our own testing) that Discover has suddenly appeared on devices with the Google beta app.

Google is testing a new UI for Assistant that puts Explore and your visual snapshot in the bottom bar

Friday, December 14th, 2018

Google has toyed with Assistant's interface on Android countless times so far, adding a keyboard input method, Google Lens, then the Explore section, and finally the Now-like interface of upcoming cards (aka "visual snapshot"). But two things have puzzled me about it: one is that Explore and Visual Snapshot were almost invisible to people and I always had to explain where the icons were and what the did, and two is that getting to your Assistant's settings was an even more obscure process, and it was almost easier to just do it from the Google Home app than Assistant.

Google Maps now features Lime bike and scooter transit in 13 cities

Thursday, December 13th, 2018

The shareable scooters and bikes from Lime have taken over dozens of cities around the world. You've probably seen them yourself, sometimes being ridden and other times discarded like trash. Now, Google Maps will help you find Lime bikes that haven't been dumped in a lake. Lime is now a Google Maps transit option in 13 cities.

Lime offers bikes and electric scooters for rental, but they can drift around a city as people take them from point A to B.

Thursday, December 13th, 2018

With technology ingrained in every facet of our lives, or so it seems, parenting has come with a new set of challenges on top of the ones that were already there. Managing your children's screen time is one of them, and Google is here to help you with that — Family Link is rolling out to Chromebooks on the stable channel (i.e. most of them).

Previously in the beta track, Family Link is Google's attempt to help parents successfully manage their kids' technology usage.
