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.

Hulu Shows Off Its Fancy New Auto-Generated Watch List For Movies And TV Shows

A list of things that you’d like to watch in the future isn’t exactly breaking new ground for streaming video services – hell, Netflix was doing that back when they were just a mail-order DVD rental company. But the software engineers at Hulu think they’ve significantly improved on the idea with the new Watch List (capital W), which is apparently cool enough to warrant both an intro video and a press release.

Outlook 2.1 Brings Email To Your Wrist With New Android Wear App

If you use Outlook as your email app of choice (or of obligation) and you sport an Android Wear watch on your wrist, you'll be happy to know that these two now work even better together.

The latest Outlook app, version 2.1.0, includes a new Wear app component that installs on your watch and allows you to check your unread emails and send template replies or dictate them. This goes even further than the simple notification interaction that was accessible before, as it lets you launch Outlook on the watch even if you don't have an unread notification on your phone.

Google Drive Can Now Selectively Sync Subfolders On Windows And Mac

For a while, desktop Google Drive's selective sync functionality has been rather, well, selective. You could only select top-level folders. This meant you could select all of your music, or all of your photos, but not a specific set of albums.

Now that's changing.

PSA: Google Maps For Android Can Navigate To Multiple Destinations (With A Little Help From A Desktop)

Officially, the Android version of Google Maps can't navigate to multiple successive destinations, which is something that the desktop/web version of Google Maps has been able to do for some time. (It's possible to search for stops along a single route, but not to add new destinations further down the line.) If users try to send directions for multiple destinations to a phone or tablet, they get this discouraging little message:

Google Play Music Podcasts Are Apparently Coming On April 18th

Play Music will soon let you listen to podcasts. No, I'm not trolling you. I know we ran a headline that said this way back in October. But we were just repeating Google's words. This time, we have a date: April 18th.

Google Photos v1.18 Adds Manual Backup For Local Photos And Video [APK Download]

Cloud storage is probably the greatest thing to happen to casual photography since manufacturers started putting decent shooters into smartphones. There's nothing like snapping a couple of group shots and throwing them up on Google Photos without the hassle of hooking a computer to a phone just to move them over first. The catch is that most of us choose not to sync pictures over cellular, instead waiting to get back within reach of Wi-Fi so our data plans don't feel too much abuse. However, there are times you still need to back up a few shots right away, and that's where the latest Google Photos update comes in.

Vine Update Lets You Watch An Entire Channel With One Tap

I am no Vine watcher, but I've heard that there's a lot of cool content on the social network especially if you figure out which users are the most interesting to follow. Lots of creative people have found their niche within the constraints of its short video format and that's what everyone who's sticking around likes about it.

Now Vine is getting updated on Android to allow you, the spectator, to watch an entire channel from start to finish with a single button instead of manually moving from one video to the next. The option is visible in the latest version of the app when you open a channel: there's a new Watch button next to the Follow one.
