Android 12 could be getting this Windows 95 feature

Android 12 could be getting this Windows 95 feature

Last year, Android 11 picked up a "hidden" feature straight out of the 90s: A "trash can" for deleted files. At the time, trashed files weren't actually user-manageable. Apps could mark items for deletion (they'd bite the dust 30 days later) and offer their own ways to restore them, but it wasn't the sort of centralized "trash can" or "recycle bin" for actually deleted files we're used to from other platforms. But based on a recent report, that could change in Android 12.

The curious case of Google Pay's disappearing American Express cards has been fixed

Apparently no one from YouTube warned Google about the 'comments section'

Apparently no one from YouTube warned Google about the 'comments section'

User reviews are a big part of any storefront. Whether you're shopping on Amazon or directly from a manufacturer, being able to see what other buyers thought of the product can help you make an informed decision when buying. As Google continues to expand its online shop to include Pixel phones, Nest devices, Fitbit trackers, and more, it's vital for the company to add standard features to the site. Review pages for many of its most popular devices are now appearing on its storefront, but in typical Google fashion, they're launching half-baked and hidden from most users.
