The team behind Google Photos has recently announced the launch of a new app - called 'PhotoScan' - for the Android and iOS platforms. The app, available with effect from November 15, gives users the ability to convert their old photos into digital prints, and save them to the cloud with a single tap.
With the help of the new PhotoScan app, users can easily scan their old prints which can be saved with all other digital photos that they have stored in their Google Photos collection.
In a post published on Thursday, November 3, US tech giant Google has resolutely defended its practices, rebuffing the European Union (EU)'s antitrust claims against the company's advertising and Internet shopping services.
The users of Google's new Pixel and Pixel XL flagship handsets in the US can opt for Clear Cases for their devices if they want to purchase a case which neither makes the handset look bulky nor obscures its color.
Clear cases are apparently a perfect choice for the owners of Google Pixel and Pixel XL handsets because they are slim and light cases which minimize extra bulkiness. Such cases are ideal for discreet protection of handsets, even though they provide a comparatively lesser level of protection than rugged cases.
According to indications from two separate YouTube videos, the newly-launched Google Pixel handset is apparently more water resistant and more durable than what is conveyed by Google's meagre IP53 official rating for the handset.
The IP53 rating with which Google has equipped the Pixel handset implies that, technically speaking, the device is not actually meant to withstand even splashes of water. As such, going by the mentioned rating, Google Pixel handset would be best kept away from any source of water, unless it is protectively encased in a waterproof case.
On Wednesday, Google rolled out the Android 7.1.1 'Nougat' Developer Preview files for the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P handset, and the Pixel C tablet.
The release of the developer preview build of Android 7.1.1 by Google is an apparent indication of the fact that the Google Nexus devices are getting Android 7.1 concurrently with Google's new Pixel and Pixel XL handsets. The new devices, with Android 7.1, are scheduled to arrive in Verizon stores probably on Thursday, October 20.
In an announcement made via a blog post released on Sunday, tech biggie Google said that it has rolled out a new open-source font called 'Noto.'
The new font has been named 'Noto' literally for "no more tofu." Noto is essentially a single typeface family which covers more than 800 languages and 100 writing scripts, and ensures a "harmonious look and feel" for all supported languages.
