Google releases a slew of minor app updates
Today Google released a number of small app updates to its Android apps that alone aren’t all that much, but are still worth noting.
The updates all bring small features to various Google apps. Well, most of them bring some new small features. Others simply fix a few unspecified bugs. There’s really no point in belaboring the description, so let’s just get on with it.
Also handy is the subtle change to the preferred transit menu. Now users can select multiple preferred transit types if they like using both the train and subway, but hate taking the bus.
Next up is Google Drive, which adds a few minor features. First, there is a new 1×1 widget added to the app that opens the document scanner. It’s incredibly useful for add physical documents to your Google Drive. Second, is the support for animated GIFs, which is neat and a great addition for those who have a massive collection of GIFs.
The app also now has the option to translate whole feeds and individual stories for those who like to subscribe to foreign language news sources.
Finally, there’s Hangouts. The new version of Hangouts simply squashes a few bugs.
Have you had a chance to try out any of the small new features yet?
