Last week, Google added several long-wanted features to Inbox by Gmail, like signatures and swipe-to-delete. That server-side update also brought along trip bundles, which will group all the emails you get about a single stretch of travel into one place to help you keep track of things. Today, Google was kind enough to give a formal walk-through for those of us who haven't received any qualifying emails since the update rolled out. Read More
There are a lot of choices for weather apps on Android - you can see the best in Rita El Khoury's roundup from yesterday. But if you prefer to have as few apps on your phone as possible (because Windows RAM-saving behavior dies hard), Google has just improved the built-in weather function of its mobile search. Read More
Remember that "Voice Access" talk that was supposed to happen at I/O but was removed from the schedule? It turns out that, while it wasn't the full-on in-app voice craziness we had hoped for, Google did have some news about voice interactions to share.

Google took the somewhat unprecedented step of lowering the price of the Nexus 6 in the Google Store earlier today. It rarely put things on sale when hardware was in the Play Store. Now Amazon has followed suit and matched the new price. The company is now asking $499.99 for the 32GB Nexus 6 and $549 for the 64GB. Read More

After opening up the Dads & Grads sale, Google has apparently reset the free rental deal, which gives Chromecast and Nexus Player owners the chance to select a movie to rent from a special collection on the Play Store. Read More
If you're on the fence about a Nexus 6 or Nexus 9, Google's got a deal going this morning for both devices, though of different types. The Nexus 6 is $150 off on all models, bringing the 32GB version down to $499 and the 64GB to $549. The deal doesn't have a stated expiration, but "save $150" does seem to imply it's probably temporary, as part of a larger father's day promo. Read More
You have two options when you sign up for Project Fi. You can buy a SIM card with a new Nexus 6. Or you can just buy the SIM card and stick it in your own Nexus 6. Want to use another phone? You can, as long as you tether it to a Nexus 6. Read More
Do you like your phone to be almost the size of a tablet? Are you of the opinion that all phone names sound better with the word "Nexus" in them?
