Tip: YouTube shows which videos have subtitles when you mute your phone

Thursday, February 14th, 2019

One of the most useful features of YouTube are the auto-generated subtitles. Say you're watching a video in Spanish and you can barely recognize your "como" from your "cama," the captions can help you put words in perspective and better understand what's being said. However, it's usually difficult to know which video has these subtitles before you start playing and try to turn them on. Today we learned of a neat trick that can help with that issue.

Tip: Google teaches you how to pronounce a word slowly and in different accents

Tuesday, December 11th, 2018

Google can help you learn a lot of things, from the definition of a word to providing you links to pages that explain quantum computing. The feature we're focusing on today sits closer to the former than the latter — how to pronounce a word.

For a while now, if you searched for the definition of a word on Google, you'd get a small speaker icon that lets you hear how it's pronounced.

How to find your recently uploaded pics on Google Photos, even if they date back many years

Saturday, August 18th, 2018

I love Google Photos and I keep recommending it left and right to anyone I know. But Photos isn't perfect and there's still a lot that the service could do to improve the user experience. For example, the ability to order photos in different ways is missing — you get reverse chronological and that's it. If you're only backing up recent images as you take them, that's not an issue, but if you're uploading older photos, it becomes near impossible to find those images and edit, share, or make albums of them.

Tip: Google Photos can find all the photos you’ve taken at “work”

Tuesday, June 19th, 2018

Photos is one of Google's most amazing beasts. Ever since its announcement, this app and service has been improving and adding useful features, the last of which is a new smart option that groups similar pictures and suggests the best one to keep. But did you know that you can search Photos for "work" and get all the images you've snapped at work? I didn't.

We're not sure how new or old the functionality is, but we just ran across it and it seems very helpful.

Tip: Get a shortcut to Bookmarks and Downloads on every new Chrome tab page

Thursday, June 14th, 2018

Yesterday, I shared with you a Chrome flag that lets you minimize the Articles for you recommendations on Chrome's new tab page. But there is a whole world of Chrome flags worth discovering, and one of them is very useful but might be unknown to you: an option to show quick shortcuts to your bookmarks and downloads. This should ease the pain of losing that handy Chrome bottom tab the team tested last year.

Tip: You can collapse the ‘Articles for you’ recommendations in Chrome’s new tab page

Wednesday, June 13th, 2018

Chrome's new tab page has been showing article recommendations it thinks are interesting to you for quite a while now. Some users find them useless and full of clickbait links, others see some good articles in the mix. If you feel like your new tab page is cluttered by them and you want to clean it up without completely disabling the recommendations, there's a Chrome flag to do just that.

Look closely at the screenshot above and you'll notice a little drop-down arrow next to Articles for you.

Tip: The new Gmail supports @ mentions, adding email recipients as you type their name

Friday, May 18th, 2018

Gmail's new interface has been a thing for the past few weeks. One change that we didn't notice when it first rolled out and that, as far as we can recall, wasn't mentioned in the official announcement or leaks beforehand is the addition of @ mentions.

If you're typing an email and you mention someone that isn't yet in the list of recipients, either by typing @name or +name (Google+ supports both too, remember?) in the body, you will see a list of suggested contacts to add to your email.

How to remove your Google voice search history and opt out of future collection

Tuesday, April 24th, 2018

Google's speech recognition technology is insanely good - perhaps the best in the industry. But did you know Google stores all your voice searches? Every time you say "Ok Google" or "Hey Google," a snippet of audio containing the command is sent to the company's servers, where it is deciphered. These audio snippets are stored indefinitely (to improve accuracy), unless you delete them and opt out of future collection.

Delete audio recordings

If you want to permanently delete these recordings, Google makes it easy to do so - if you know where to look.

Reminder: You can double tap Recents to quickly switch to your previous app

Saturday, April 21st, 2018

Android is full of wonderful little touches here and there that we either forget or have never come across in the first place. One of these is the very neat time-saving ability to double tap the Recents button to switch to your previous app. The functionality was added way back in 2016 with Android N, and has been saving us time for two years now. If you didn't know about it though, and many of you did not, this will be your new favorite thing.
