Warning: Google Photos saves photos without your knowledge, even when app is deleted

We were excited that Google has separated the Photos app from Google Plus and Google Drive because it now serves as a lone app for storing photos. Not that there are no alternatives but the Photos app is very much dedicated for cloud storage and photo backup. This has been tipped way back in 2014 when we heard Google+ Photos may be spinning into its own service and as a new web photo sharing service.

New minor updates for Google Docs, Slides, Sheets coming up

For apps that we constantly use for work and productivity purposes, updates, no matter how minor they are, are always welcome. Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides has been used by a lot of people as replacements for Word, Excel, and Powerpoint, especially in companies and organizations that rely a lot on Google products. There are upcoming updates to these apps that may not be that big of a deal, but they are still improvements nonetheless, especially if you're always on the go.

Android M Developer Preview updated, platform permissions modified

Not much has been said about the upcoming Android M to be released this fall but I'm sure you've been guessing and betting on what the 'M' could possibly stand for. Muffin? Merengue? Milk Shake? I'm going for Android Muffin because it's much easier to remember and illustrate. But let's not waste our time thinking about the next dessert Google will be serving us. Developers who recently got to experience the Android M Developer Preview will be happy to know that an update has been released.

Google Messenger updated with stickers, location sharing

Google officially launched the Messenger last year but it's only now that the instant messaging app is getting a significant update. This new version now comes with new stickers and  location sharing features. This messaging app already boasts of a modern user interface but the addition of new features makes it more convenient, easier, and more fun to use.

Next Google Glass in the works, might have an external batt, run Intel Atom CPU

The Google Glass Project is not totally over. The search giant is already working on the next version which we expect will be better than ever. So far, we learned that Italian eyewear company Luxottica started working on the next Google Glass. We also know that it will be an “Enterprise Edition” and it will be powered by an unknown Intel Atom processor. All these we learned after the Google Glass division went under new management earlier this year.

Google launches Ethernet Adapter for Chromecast, now sold out

Don't get your hopes up as there's no new Chromecast yet. Google knows its current digital media player is still doing great in the market. It's almost two years old and yet support for the service is only expanding rapidly the past few months. The only disadvantage we see is that it only works over WiFi. Not that it's big problem but there is the reality of getting a poor WiFi connection at times. To solve this, Google has introduced a new adapter with built-in Ethernet port.

Smart contact lenses and teeth may be coming your way soon

If Google had their own way, all our body parts may eventually turn into "smart" and digitally enabled objects, at least based on some of the patents that they have been trying to get lately. A patent that was leaked showed that they are still hard at work on coming up with smart contact lenses, and a lot of other body-mountable devices will be coming our way, if they do get the patents and they get it to work.
