Google Keep shows 4 new colors on the desktop, nothing yet on mobile

Call this a teaser or a weird rollout that hit one platform before another... or just typical Google behavior. Google Keep is showing users 4 new possible color options for notes, for a total of 12, but only on the desktop version. If you're using Keep on Android, even if you're on the latest v3.4.881, you get none of these and you still only see 8 colors.

The 4 new colors are dark blue, purple, pink, and some sort of light brown. I think the first two actually look good, though contrast with the black text isn't ideal, but the latter two just look too light and dull in my opinion.

Snapseed v2.18 revamps the UI with lighter theme and bottom toolbar [APK Download]

Most Google apps are constantly getting small updates, but Snapseed tends to get fewer updates with more stuff in each one. Today, Google is rolling out Snapseed v2.18. It's a strange version number to choose for such a major update (the last one was 2.17). You get a new, lighter interface with a bottom bar for access all the app's editing tools. There are still a lot of sliders, though.

Google adds "Open in Play Store" button to Play Store mobile site

When you tap on a link of a Play Store app listing on an Android device, you're supposed to be taken directly to the Play Store app. But occasionally Android doesn't properly redirect links to the respective app (or the browser you're using doesn't handle those actions), leaving you on the mobile site. Should this ever happen to you, you'll be happy to know that Google has added a button to the mobile site that will take you right to the app.
