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.

You can now share an image from any app to Google Lens [APK Download]

Wednesday, September 26th, 2018

Google Lens, the app that makes you search the visual world around you as easily as if you were typing a couple of words on a computer, has received an update recently to v1.1 that adds a new sharing intent. This makes it even easier and more practical to find things with Lens.

Previously, you could trigger Lens in one of three ways: from Assistant, Photos, or the Camera (on devices that support the latter).

Google removes ‘Save to Inbox’ feature from Android app, but it’s still available on the web [Updated]

Friday, August 17th, 2018

Even though Inbox by Gmail has always been a testing ground for Google's main email client, many users now prefer it — myself included. It was already dismaying to see the removal of certain snooze options (place and someday) in June, but now it looks like the 'Save to Inbox' sharing option on Android has been axed as well.

App windows in new Android P Recents screen are now interactive for some reason

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018

Probably the most divisive new feature in the Android P beta is gesture navigation. Aside from there being no Recents button with a swipe up of the home button now the way to see your open apps, the UI is now a horizontal scrolling affair — much like the current behavior in iOS. Another curious feature is that the app windows in the Recents screen (also known as Overview) are now interactive.

Google, please fix Android’s slow, bloated share UI

Saturday, May 5th, 2018

Sharing from one app to another has been a mainstay of Android for years and years. It was one of the features that first drew me to Android: no more copying and pasting, no more having to open Twitter or WhatsApp to send a picture I just saw in my Gallery. Apps could talk to each other and the experience felt more cohesive and seamless.

But with time, the Share UI in Android has languished, stuck with the same features and same problems.

Google Photos gets new sharing previews for users who don’t have the app installed

Wednesday, February 7th, 2018

Towards the end of 2016, Google introduced an API called App Preview Messaging. It debuted with Allo, where it lets you message anyone regardless of whether they have the app installed. They receive a preview message, handled by Google Play Services, which they can respond to as though they do have the app.

Duo recently added support for this, too, so you could receive and answer a video call from a contact even if you've never heard of the app.

Google Photos v3.13 adds search filter for Motion Photos, notifications for Photo Books, and a shortcut to set up reciprocal sharing [APK Download]

Tuesday, January 30th, 2018

We're getting a new version of Google Photos today, and breaking from the recent theme, this one actually has a few changes, though most of them don't stand out all that much. It's now easy to search for Motion Photos with a convenient search category. There are new notifications related to Photos Books, plus the settings to turn them off. And if anybody is auto-sharing photos with you, there's now a shortcut for setting up the same arrangement with them.
