Google Adapts The Google Play For Education Platform For Use On Chromebooks

Microsoft OneDrive App Gets Updated With Search (Yes, It Really Didn't Have That), Pull To Refresh, New Nav Drawer

A quick glance at the OneDrive 2.6 changelog on the Play Store probably would have you saying "meh," but if you actually read it closely, it's more of a "seriously Microsoft, are you kidding me?" The multi-billion dollar software giant's Android app for its cloud-based storage service was apparently lacking a little something called "search" until its most recent update.

Here's the problem: you don't have a headset. Google I/O attendees are getting free headsets that they can build out of cardboard, which then holds their phone at optimal VR-viewing distance.
