Google Assistant on phones can finally send videos and music to Chromecast

Google Duo and Photos are set to get massive updates, latest APK teardowns reveal

For those who aren't aware, Google's Photos cloud-storage service allows users to save their photos/videos in two forms: original and high-quality. With that Google also said that users of both these smartphones will get unlimited photo/video uploads in original quality, but, only till January 15, 2021. It is available through a separate icon above the exposure slider on the right side of the screen.

First and foremost, the native Pixel 2 calendar widget is arguably an underrated feature of the Pixel Launcher, getting lost among the other nifty highlights such as the always-on display, the squeezable frame to launch Google Assistant, Google Lens, and many others. If you already have the Pixel Launcher installed, this should install on top of it.

The top toolbar containing shortcuts for flash, autofocus, HDR+, and other functionalities now spans nearly all the way to the hamburger menu in the top left corner of the user interface. Once you tap on the hamburger menu, nearly all the tools are present except for a minor change, i.e. the "Lens Blur" option is now represented by a tulip icon instead of the shutter. There is also a slightly different animation when expanding folders.

As for the screen sharing feature, it's something that Google is possibly working on for updates after the latest v20. This is a feature that is supposed to enable Google Pixel and Nexus users share their screens, something that should be handy when trying to help your mom solve a problem on her phone while you are away.

Developers have found a way to pirate cloud storage from Google Photos. The company has added a few additional features in its Android app to see how users are managing their own albums and watching sideshows.
