Google have announced that YouTube, one of their biggest services, has been a video contest spanning 8 years, and tomorrow will be the last day for entries.
It’s almost certain that the Nexus 5 will be revealed in the coming months, but at this point there is merely speculation as to what its features and specifications could be. This concept paints an interesting picture as to what the future could hold for the next Nexus device, but it might be a little too good to be true.
The Nexus 4 is one of the most beautiful phones on the market, however the glass rear means that many owners are reporting that the device has slipped off a desk or flat surface, causing pretty serious damage.
As of yesterday, an update to Google+ is available to be downloaded in the Google Play Store. The update brings a number of small user interface tweaks to make the overall use of the app a much more pleasurable experience.
It’s been just over a year since Google re-branded the Android Market, naming it the Google Play Store. The new name also came with a new design, which after a few minor tweaks, has remained largely the same for the past year or so. Droid-Life have gotten their hands on the next big update of the Google Play Store, which has a new Holo design and incorporates the card layout which Google have been pushing since the release of Jelly Bean.
After a couple of leaks earlier this week, Google Keep has officially launched to the public. The service is a note taking application for Android which syncs with Google Drive, meaning it can be accessed on mobile, tablet or desktop.
Google has released another 4 adverts for Chrome, one of which features the Family Guy scene where Stewie is trying to get his mother’s attention.
Google has many messaging services, all of which work very well. Google Voice, Google Talk and Google Hangouts all work to serve their purpose, but they don’t work very well with each other. According to reports, Google is going to try and remedy that by releasing a new unified messaging app to combine all of their services, under the delightfully named ‘Babble’.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I simply love adverts made by Google. Come to think of it, I’ve probably started an article off with that line before. But that’s because each time one is released, they remind me of how good technology has made our day-to-day life, and how it should be used a lot more than we use it at the moment.
If there is one thing the internet loves, it’s a GIF. Google, being one of the internet’s largest companies, has recognised this, and implemented a new search option in Google Images, to help find the moving pictures.
Starting (apparently) today, users can find an ‘animated’ selection in the type filter of Google Images. I say apparently, because I am yet to receive the feature in my location. I’m sure it will arrive soon enough.
