Google Photos tries on a new side-scrolling share menu

Friday, January 4th, 2019

We've been nothing if not critical of Android's slow and wildly inconsistent share interface, and Google has promised that fixing it is "a priority." In what is likely to be related, updated versions of the UI have started rolling out to a handful of apps in the last month, and the latest to see a taste of something new is Google Photos. Calm your excitement, though, as it's still in limited testing.

Chrome 71 brings web apps to the Android share menu

Sunday, December 9th, 2018

Slowly but surely, Chrome is trying to converge native and web apps. Chrome 71 came out a few days ago on Android, but one new feature flew under the radar — web apps can now appear in the system share menu.

Chrome 61 enabled the Web Share API last year, which allows web apps to share text or images to native apps. For example, you can share links to tweets by tapping a button in the Twitter Lite web app.

Google Photos rolling out new album sharing button for ‘People and Pets’

Tuesday, November 20th, 2018

Google Photos is magic (and my personal favorite service/product to come out of the company), but one thing that can be a little bit tedious is sharing content in it with others. A small step to ease that process seems to be rolling out, though, as a new "Share as album" button has appeared for some in the Google Photos Android app when browsing the People and Pets albums. Inundating your coworkers with pictures of your cat will never be easier.

Google Podcasts can now share links to shows and episodes

Tuesday, November 6th, 2018

Google Podcasts is pretty widely regarded as lacking in features its competition has — notably, you can't mark multiple episodes as played at once or set the app to automatically download new episodes of shows you're subscribed to — but it's gradually improving. Case in point: the app can now generate links to podcasts and shows for easy sharing.

Sharing a podcast works pretty much like sharing anything else on Android: tap the three-dot overflow menu button in the corner, then Share.

Google is rolling out v8.22 of its self-titled app. You'll now find a new widget for Sound Search hidden away, and a teardown includes several topics related to auto-downloading podcasts, Google Assistant for Households, a page for your contributions, and an animation to promote the upcoming Pixel Stand.

Google Photos v3.15 prepares to add Likes to shared photos and videos, exporting Motion Stills as GIFs, and adds another layer to Austin’s cryptic clues [APK Teardown]

Thursday, March 1st, 2018

A fresh round of updates to the Google Photos app began rolling out this week. Aside from a few small tweaks to wording, you're probably not going to see any noticeable changes as a result of installing the latest version, but as is often the case, there are at least several topics to cover in a teardown. We can look forward to counting up Likes on our shared photos, easier sharing of Motion Stills, and of course, the wider rollout of Google Lens.

Twitter trying new share button on Android in server-side test

Friday, January 19th, 2018

Twitter is no stranger to server-side tests, and now the company appears to have another in the wings. AP's own Artem noticed a bit of a tweak in Twitter for Android in recent days, with a new three-dot share button appearing at the bottom of tweets. All the sharing options previously present in the arrow menu to a tweet's top right have been relocated to this button, and the previous "send privately" option is now gone.

Artem notes that he was running a recent beta when he noticed the new icon, and though I tried installing the last few beta versions to trigger it, the change appears to be server-side.

Wednesday, April 26th, 2017

Google_Trips_Static_Post_0000_Blog-Post-1.width-1000

Google has just pushed out a blog post that indirectly outlines a few changes to Google Trips. We reported last month that manually adding reservations and support for bus and train tickets had been added to the app. This latest post by Google shows off some additional features, like easy itinerary sharing and new reservation types like restaurants and car rentals.

For those out of the loop, Google Trips is a pretty sweet way to keep all your itineraries and reservations together in one place on your phone.
