Google Drive Now Lets You Disable Shared File Notifications On Android

Google Drive has been giving us notifications about new shared files and requests to access our files for several months, but the notification setting was only accessible from Drive on the web. If you were wondering how to turn it off after you saw it on your phone, you were probably stumped. That's why the Drive team is rolling out an update that adds a Notification pane in the app's settings, which allows you to toggle them on or off.

The settings also let you pick a sound, enable vibration, and choose whether you get notified only for new shared items, or for requests for access, or both.

[APK Download] Gmail 5.10 Fixes The Broken Hotmail Account Sync (But Not All Of Gmail's Syncing Issues)

Since the release of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Gmail users have been reporting some syncing problems on their app that appeared simultaneously with their update to Android's latest flavor. (Very few users mentioned being affected on Lollipop, but it's worth pointing out.) The problems seemed to be divided in two categories: one that specifically stopped Hotmail accounts from being synced inside the Gmail app and another that caused a lot of delays in syncing and notifications regardless of the account type.

Gmail 5.10, which started being pushed to users on January 20, fixes the first issue. A Google employee explained on the corresponding Help Forums thread:

Hi everyone,
I can confirm that upgrading to the Gmail Android app 5.10 should fix this issue, however it's rolling out slowly so is only available for a small number of people right now.

Some Nexus Owners Are Having Syncing Issues In Gmail, Inbox, And Other Apps

If you've been experiencing some intermittent problems getting timely email alerts on your Nexus phone, you're not alone. According to lengthy threads on both Google's official Nexus Help Forum and the AOSP issue tracker, quite a few Android users running Android 6.0 and later builds on Nexus hardware are seeing similar issues. The problem seems to result in late or missing notifications for Gmail and Inbox, as well as less frequent alerts for other apps, and less definable errors with some Google services like Google Now.

The issue tracker entry has been starred by 140 people at the time of writing, indicating a fairly widespread problem, though it isn't universal.

Here's How The Notification LEDs On The Nexus 5X And 6P Work

Google is committed to the ambient display feature as the main method of alerting you to notifications on Nexus devices, but it's an imperfect solution. And indeed, some users simply refuse to buy a phone that doesn't have a proper notification LED. This year's Nexus phones both have an LED, and they offer a lot of functionality.

Maps v9.15 Adds A Toggle To Turn Off Traffic Event Notifications [APK Download]

Google Maps received a fairly minor update last night, bumping it up to v9.15. There aren't any big visible changes, and even the teardown was pretty light, but there is one addition to the Settings screen that's worth mentioning. Under the Notifications section is a new checkbox titled "Traffic information." Obviously, it lets you shut off traffic notifications, which might be fairly handy if you already know they're coming or there tend to be a lot of false positives reported in your area. It's not the most exciting feature, but it will certainly matter to a few users.

This is the only noticeable change to the interface we've seen so far, but there may be some others lurking in a corner we haven't checked yet.

The Nexus 5X Does Have A True RGB Notification LED Just Like The 6P, But It's Missing From The Spec List

Nexus launch day is a cutthroat time when mere moments can make the difference between a speedy shipment and weeks of waiting. While quickly comparing the Nexus 5X and 6P to decide which one to order, many have noticed that the 6P lists an RGB notification LED, but the 5X doesn't. Well, we've confirmed there's an LED on the 5X too. How? We bothered Google VP of Engineering Dave Burke via email. He was kind enough to explain what's going on.
