Google Calendar Web And API Now Support Adding File Attachments To Events Via Google Drive

No longer a labs option, file attachments in Google Calendar are going to the stable channel. A feature oriented towards shared events, this can allow you to share important information that can't be captured in a written description. It is live now on the web and the API is ready for use, which means we should see app developers taking advantage in the near future.

You'll see that "add attachment" option when creating a new calendar event, and when clicked you will see something like this:

That should look familiar if you've shared files on the web with any other Google product in the recent past.

'Google Notifications' Panel Gets Filtering Options

Before bits and pieces of Google+ departed from Google's web toolbar earlier this month, the bar's notification panel began labeling notifications according to their origin. G+ notifications for example got a Google+ icon, while notifications about a user's photo library got the Google Photos badge.

Tonight it looks like Google is rolling out another change to the panel, adding a settings button which allows users to filter out G+, Photos, or YouTube notifications individually.

Interestingly, not all sources appear for all users - it's unclear exactly how the panel knows which options to show, but it appears that the presence of Photos or YouTube options partially depends on whether you've opted to receive those notifications in the Google+ settings.

Google Trends Now Provides Real-Time Data Following Biggest Update Since 2012

Google Trends has received a big redesign in what is its largest expansion since 2012. Perhaps the most striking change is the inclusion of real-time data. Users can now turn to Google Trends for minute-by-minute views at how people are currently using the web.

To make Trends a better tool for journalists and researchers, Google has added in the ability to search by more niche topics and smaller geographic areas. Not only can I see how many people in Virginia have searched for Android M in the past few hours, I can compare views between the people in the Roanoke Valley with those in the DC suburbs.

Google Announces Android Security Rewards, Will Pay You To Find And Fix Vulnerabilities Afflicting Nexus Devices And The Broader Ecosystem

Google pays people to find and close the flaws in its systems. This is pretty common throughout the tech industry, largely because it motivates people to approach from different backgrounds and with contrasting ways of thinking, something you can't get from internal employees. With Google products getting into the hands of billions of people and serving mission critical roles, it's crucial that services and information are safe.

Over the past five years, Google says it has paid over 1.5 million dollars to people that discovered vulnerabilities in Chrome and other products through its Security Rewards program. Now it will expand this program to cover Android.
