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.

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: 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: 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.

Reminder tip: Disable Wi-Fi during sleep to dramatically increase idle battery life on tablets and devices you don’t often use

Monday, August 7th, 2017

Many of us have a tablet or an extra phone (or more) that we keep lying around the house or office for media use, for reading or browsing, for testing, or maybe even as remote controls for smart home appliances. Thing is, 8 times out of 10, when you pick up this tablet or phone to use it, you discover the battery is completely drained because you forgot to put it on the charger and you haven't used it in a while so you didn't notice the low battery level.

[Small Tip] If the keyboard is your preferred Assistant input method, you can switch to voice by triggering Assistant again

Saturday, July 1st, 2017

Many of us were happy to see the recent addition of a keyboard input method in Assistant and the setting to choose it as a preferred method. After all, many of us don't like to shout at our phones all the time because we either need some privacy, we're often in public, or we may simply not feel comfortable talking to an inanimate object.

But what if the keyboard is your preferred input method and there's that one time where you would rather use voice instead?
