    As Android users are only too aware, Google's been pushing Google+ pretty hard. If you've decided to go ahead and embrace the service and all it offers, that means you've probably got Auto Backup enabled, loading all the pics you shoot with your Android phone's camera to the cloud. Already, that's meant opening yourself up to a bunch of cool features, like Auto Awesome and Auto Enhance, but today we learn of one more, with the debut of a new ability for Gmail. This is the web version of Gmail we're talking about here, and not the Android app, but seeing as how you use your phone to load ...

    The Google app updates we just shared with you – those for Keep, Play Movies, and Newsstand – are already on their way to users' phones. But there's one more update we've heard people talking about today that isn't quite ready for prime time, and its changes aren't yet set in stone, still the stuff of rumors. Although that puts us in a slightly less-than-enviable position for talking about it, it's such a major component to how many Android users get things done on their smartphones that it's worth giving an early look: it seems like Google's been hard at work cooking up a new version ...

    Google already takes advantage of the connections between all the services it offers to provide its users some convenient, time-saving tools. For instance, when you get a message in Gmail that mentions a time or date, Google automatically detects that text, underlines it, and gives you a quick way to add the event directly to your Google Calendar. From the looks of things, though, Google may be about to take this kind of automated system and really run with it, letting Google Now detect events in conversations you have from sources beyond just Gmail, and then suggest you add them to your ...

    In the last couple of months we've seen tremendous growth in the privacy sector of mobile devices, and that's logical given all the recent issues that surround certain US government agencies and the surveillance they practice. Products like the Blackphone couldn't be more timely in being launched at a time when people don't know who to trust with their most personal information, and now it seems that other bigger companies like Google are joining the wagon. Google has just announced that Gmail will be more secure in every single aspect. In the past, an HTTPS connection went from being ...

    Despite the dozens and dozens of apps under its belt, spanning multiple platforms, Google manages to keep a relatively steady stream of updates coming, stomping-out bugs, delivering new features, and refining user experiences. Today we've got three such updates to check out, coming to both iOS and Android. The first update to cross our desk is the new version 3.0 of Gmail for iOS, hitting the App Store today. The big news here is background mail fetching for iOS 7 users, letting the app retrieve mail from Google's servers even when it's not open – that means that you'll need to have ...

    In a world like the one we have today, the importance of your email is both significant and common. Sadly, bugs on mobile applications are just as common, and the probability having both of these mix together can lead into very unpleasant surprises. Google has just alerted its customers on a major bug that it faces with its iOS mobile application. If you launch the app you'll notice that the company is giving you a notification regarding the possibility of some of your email being deleted. The bug was apparently sending your desired email to the trash or your spam folder during January ...

    Just about a month ago, we heard from Google about a significant change coming to the way it handled images embedded in emails – not those sent as attachments, but ones using HTML to display inline with the rest of the message. With the old way of doing things, it automatically blocked the display of any such images from unknown senders, prompting you to choose when and if you wanted to see them. But last month Google announce a new service wherein it would serve as proxy for those images, scanning for malware, and preventing a direct connection between your computer and the sender's ...

    So far, Gmail across all platforms has offered users the feature whereby it blocks the display of images embedded in a message from all but trusted senders. There's a good reason why that is, as unlike with the text of an email that gets delivered to you through Google's systems, when you view images in an email, you're connecting directly to someone else's server. That not only can be used to verify if you actually read the email, potentially violating your privacy, but reveals your IP, and by extension, your rough location. Google finally thinks it has come up with a way to both keep you ...

    We've been hearing about a bunch of stuff Google's been up to with its Play Store app selection today, and maybe the most interesting tidbit to cross our desk has concerned a new update landing for the Android Gmail app. Let's get right in to looking at what's new. Sure, there are any number of cloud-based services you can use to store and transfer your files, but for millions of users, the easiest and most reliable way to send someone something is as an email attachment. In the past Android Gmail attachment support was seriously limited, but this update finally lets you attach and save ...

    Mid-week slump got you feeling down? Tired about hearing of far-off smartphone launches and craving something new and interesting that's here now? We might have just the thing for you, at least if you're an Android user, with Google announcing some significant updates to both Gmail and its Hangout apps this afternoon. Hangouts replaced Talk this past summer, and that transition was met with more than a little resistance. One of the bigger frustrations it led to was users no longer being aware if the people they were attempting to contact were even online in the first place. This new update ...
