Google Maps makeover: Material Design, better travel features

It's the season for makeovers for a lot of apps, particularly Google products, in preparation for the arrival of Android 5.0 Lollipop and also for the expected glut of new devices during this Christmas season.

Open files from Google Drive on to your preferred program

The rise (and permanence maybe?) of cloud storage has practically changed the way we use and interact with our files. Google Drive in particular has allowed you to preview and edit files from your browser without having to open the particular program associated with it. But what if you actually wanted to use a program that is not supported by Google Drive, but is necessary for you to work on that file? A new extension is now available for Google Chrome which will give you the option of opening the file to your preferred compatible program.

Android turns 7: Happy Birthday to the little green bot

Seven years. That's how long Android has been in existence. Or technically, the Open Handset Alliance that gave birth to Android. Although we didn't get the very first stable Android release, 1.0 Cupcake, until a year later, November 5, 2007 was the date when the ball started rolling. And that ball has been rolling up and up since then, with no stopping it from dominating the mobile space, from smartphones, to tablets, to watches, to TV, and soon, to cars as well, and probably any other device that can house a mini computer inside.

8 more countries can now access Google Play Movies

Do people still go to actual movie theaters? Do people still watch TV on the actual TV set? Some would say there are still "old school" media consumers who prefer to access their movies and TV shows in its original format. But a lot would say that digital content has already eclipsed movie tickets and TV viewership, or at least it's getting there. Google Play Movies continues to expand its reach of bringing this digital videos to your Android devices, and now 8 more countries have been added to their list.

Google to replenish Nexus 6 stocks every Wednesday

The Nexus 9 and the Nexus Player have both formally launched but the Nexus 6 is still curiously unavailable. It seems that Google indeed has inventory issues based on their latest update about the smartphone. The Android maker promises to move quickly to fill inventories to meet the presumably high demand for the device and has tipped users to check every Wednesday for that update. Those who want carrier subsidies however, will have to wait later in November to get theirs.
