Google Drive v2.4 Adds Inline Uploads And User-Selectable Colored Folders, May Soon Add Various Smart Recommendations And More [APK Teardown + Download]

While Google has been pushing out a ton of OS and app updates, the Drive team got out one of its own. This is a perfectly good update on its own, but it also includes clues to some upcoming features, too. In this update, you'll find a newly revised look and operation for uploading files, and there's even a color picker for folders. (Yey!) On the teardown side, we can look forward to recommendations for files, a shortcut to "Team Drives," and possibly even another form of device backup. Oh yeah, and the FAB changes color.

YouTube App Starts Introducing A New Record And Upload Screen And Updated Camcorder FAB For Some Users

Have you compared YouTube on your phone to YouTube on a friend's phone lately? There are better than average chances that the two are at least slightly different. The video consumption app is a bit like a snowflake, at least in the sense that it's not the same experience for any two people. The latest experiment for some users is introducing a new icon for the floating action button (FAB) and an entirely new screen for uploading content to YouTube.

Left: older look. Right: new look.

There's not much of a change to the FAB itself, just a new icon. The somewhat generic upload icon has been replaced by a camcorder.

Flickr 4.0 Introduces Auto-Uploadr (For Photos And Videos), Camera Roll, A New Look, And More

Magically uploading every photo you take on your phone isn't a new feature these days. The major cloud storage providers all prompt you to fill their servers with shots of your lunches, vacations, and nudes. Now you can add Flickr to the list with the release of version 4.0.

Except this isn't actually the first time Flickr has announced the new feature for Android. The feature originally known as Auto Sync is now named the Auto-Uploadr (those pesky e's). Okay, it isn't just a rebranding. You now have the ability to automatically upload videos as well.

This move coincides with the launch of Uploadr for Windows and Mac. You can use Wi-Fi or cellular networks, and images are private by default.

Todoist 4.0 Introduces Native File Uploading Support, Audio Note Recording, Dropbox/Google Drive Integration, And More

Today Todoist has rolled out an update for its Android app that introduces the ability to attach files to notes natively. This includes data stored locally, along with audio recordings created on the fly. More appropriately for a cloud-based to-do list service, the app can also pull files directly from Dropbox or Google Drive. To give it a go, just hit the paper clip icon when creating a new note.

Twitter Update To Allow Tagging Up To Ten Users In Photos, Multiple Photo Uploads Coming Soon

In an announcement on its official blog today, Twitter said that "photos just got more social." What has actually happened is that social just got more photos. In an update to both iOS and Android mobile apps, Twitter will allow users to tag each other in photos, with the ability to upload four photos at once starting on iOS and coming to Android and the web "soon."

Users will be able to tag up to ten other people in their photos, while maintaining all 140 characters for brief, micro-blogged commentary. When you attach a photo to a tweet, a new button labeled "who's in this photo?" will appear, as shown below.

Google Play Books Again Able To Upload PDF Files On The Go With New Update [APK Download]

Last December, Google Play Books saw an update that allowed users to upload PDF and EPUB files to their libraries from their mobile device (by way of Gmail attachments or downloads). A subsequent update to version 3.1.23, however, removed the ability to add PDFs. At the time, Google confirmed to us that the functionality was removed because it was "experimental," but we were told it would return at some point in the future.

It seems that point has come, as an update to Google Play Books has begun rolling out which brings back the ability to add PDF files from your mobile device, while also moving around some navigation options and of course fixing some bugs.

Google Play Books Update 3.1.17 Finally Lets You Upload Books Directly From Devices, Open Books Faster And Smoother, And More [APK Download]

Google Play Books update 3.1.17 is slowly rolling out, and I'm glad to report that it finally brings a feature a lot of you have been dying to see - book uploading directly from your devices. As always, we have the APK which you can install if you don't see the update just yet right below.

What's New

As I already mentioned, you no longer need to go to Google's website to upload your own books - 3.1.17 allows you to upload PDFs and EPUBs directly. Just open a book in any file manager or from an email, and you'll see a new option to "Upload to Play Books." From there, it's all smooth sailing.

[Hands-On] Play Music Is Now The Template For All Future Music Services (Even If It Takes A Little While To Love)

At the start of this review, I was simultaneously excited and frustrated. Now I'm just plain excited. For a bit of context, I have been bouncing between cloud music services since Lala was still a thing. I had one simple desire: I wanted to pay a monthly fee for unfettered access to a large library of content, but still wanted to be able to bring my own. I know that $10/month is not going to get me every song in existence, but if I can pay for most music, and then supply the rest, I'll be happy. Today, Google finally gave me what I wanted and, make no mistake, this is the model that other apps are going to follow for a long time to come.

Titanium Backup Updated To Version 5.8 With Web Server Backup Upload/Download, Support For USB MTP, And More

Titanium Backup, perhaps the most popular and powerful root backup solution available, got an update to version 5.8 today, an update that brought with it fixes, added support, and new features.

Probably the most significant new feature is the addition of web server backup uploading and downloading (for Pro users). If that sounded like a sentence written in Greek, we'll try to expound – what this means is that your device can now start a web server right from the Titanium Backup interface. You can then download and upload backups on your PC by accessing the server (in a method similar to AirDroid).

Google Finally Brings Scan And Match To Play Music, Doesn't Require Uploading Your Whole Friggin' Library Anymore

While Google's been working feverishly to build out its Play Store, bringing it to other countries and expanding its offerings, the company's music store has been lacking one crucial feature that its competitors have: library matching. Where Amazon and iTunes can scan your current collection and add the songs to your online storage, Google has, until recently, required users to upload every individual track manually. A long and tedious process. In mid-November, the scan and match feature came out for Europe, and today it arrives for US residents.

Where Google differs from Amazon and iTunes, however, is that this scanning and matching service will be entirely free.
