Updates are the news of the week. Specifically, updates from Google. It seems they’re pushing out many of the changes discussed during Google I/O 2013 in the past couple weeks, and I’d expect even more. Hangouts, Gmail, and Chrome Beta were a few of the Android apps to receive updates this week. In other news:
- BlackBerry Messenger is coming to Android, sometime. The rumor was June 27, but that’s being pushed aside by BlackBerry execs who say a U.K.-based tweet from T-Mobile specifying a US release date isn’t true. Too bad.
- Evernote updated its app with reminders. They’re cool, just like Evernote.
- If you’re having Gmail trash can withdrawals, check out this post to bring it back. Don’t forget about my how-to posts here and here.
- Comic book aficiandos will want to check out this post from Lifehacker on the best comic book apps for Android.
- I might be one of the thousands of people in line to see The Internship movie. CNN has discusses why Google loves the movie.
- PC World shares 15 great Google Chrome experiments.
- Google’s bragging about it’s predictive capabilities. Apparently, it’s a box office success-predicting machine.
- The “Google experience” is finally becoming a reality for Android users. Google’s taking control of devices and offering Google versions of the newest released phones. That means less crapware, near-instant Android updates, and an overall more satisfied user.
- And finally, I’ve been there, done this. Unfortunately, I didn’t have YouTube or Google Search.
Have a great week!
