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.

The changelog for the latest Lens update (which should have appeared on most devices by now) has a single item that's a bit difficult to parse.

Google used this ridiculous 5-phone case to fine-tune the Pixel 3’s portrait mode

Thursday, November 29th, 2018

We were pretty impressed with how the Pixel 2's portrait mode worked, and Google's deep dive into the technical details was easily one of my favorite reads of last year. The company must have recognized what a hit it was, as a new explanation for the differences behind the Pixel 3's depth-sensing tech was just published. As always nowadays, a big chunk of the changes are due to the magic of neural networks, but Google also has a "Frankenphone" 5-Pixel case to thank for the Pixel 3's Portrait progress.

Google Photos site updated to match the app’s refreshed Material UI

Thursday, November 15th, 2018

Google Photos' Android app was updated back in September to Google's hot new, mostly white aesthetic. At the time, the site still lagged behind with older iconography and layout, but no longer. Today Google has pushed that same Material Theme/Material Design 2 look onto the Google Photos site.

Of course, the site already used a white background, so the most immediately noticeable change is the updated iconography and font.

Thursday, November 8th, 2018

An update to Google Photos began rolling out late last night.

We will be getting some new informative boxes that can explain why backups aren't running, plus we may finally get back the much loved option to only perform backups while charging.

The Pixel Stand photo frame mode is busted for some people

Friday, November 2nd, 2018

Google's Pixel Stand does not come cheap, but you'd naturally expect it to work flawlessly if you decided to drop $70 on it. Well, Google might have some work to do there. Some Pixel Stand owners are beginning to complain that photo frame mode, one of the exclusive Pixel Stand features, just doesn't work.

In the Pixel Stand settings, you can configure your Pixel 3 or 3 XL to show a slideshow of your Google Photos content.

Update Notes for YouTube, Google+, YouTube Music, Google Camera, Photos, and Wear OS (October 28, 2018)

Sunday, October 28th, 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.

Friday, October 19th, 2018

Google's Pixels have some of the best cameras around in our opinion, but there's one avenue in which that pixel-peeping photo performance can still fall short: Once in a while, that snapshot you remember taking won't be saved. And, so far as we can tell, it's still an issue on Google's new Pixel 3 and 3 XL.
