Google Recorder app with new transcription-based editor now rolling out (APK Download)

It's been a hot minute since Google announced a big v2 update to its Recorder app for Pixel phones. With it comes the ability to make edits not just around waveforms, but by words in the automatically-generated transcript. Well, that update is rolling out in baby steps right now, but it's also available to sideload through APK Mirror.

Google Reminders editing is functional again

Google Reminders editing is functional again

Google has fixed a bug that hindered many people from editing their Assistant reminders for some time yesterday. It was possible to create new reminders via voice, but manual editing via the reminder overview was broken, potentially globally. Luckily, there were workarounds if you absolutely had to change something about existing reminders during the period.

Google Photos v4.38 fixes bug preventing edited H.265 videos from being saved (Updated)

Google Photos v4.38 fixes bug preventing edited H.265 videos from being saved (Updated)

Some Android phones offer a nifty video solution called HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) that records your creations in the H.265 format instead of H.264. This takes up less space on your phone and in your cloud library, so it's something many people toggle on (it's not on by default on a Pixel, for example). Unfortunately, Google Photos isn't currently able to edit and save these H.265 videos, much to the dismay of many users.

[Update: Only on Pixel 2] Android P feature spotlight: Screenshot editing is now native with 'Markup'

Google recently started rolling out a screenshot editing popup for the Google app beta that also made its way to other apps for some. But it looks like that won't be necessary for devices running Android P, as a native screenshot editing tool, dubbed 'Markup,' has been implemented. It's not bad.

Images in Allo chats may now include an edit button for some users

Images in Allo chats may now include an edit button for some users

Say what you will about Allo, good or bad, but don't suggest that the developers aren't busy with new features. Each update typically brings some change to the interface, and sometimes it happens even between updates. The latest example is a new edit button that now appears at the top right of images and custom stickers (not regular stickers) in the chat window. It can be used to quickly take an image from chat, make changes, and post it for others in the conversation to see.

Google Calculator v7.3 enables text editing and memory actions in the expression field, tweaks the launcher icon, and more [APK Download + Teardown]

One great thing about major updates to Android – and the developer previews leading up to them – is that a lot of the smaller, often overlooked apps tend to get some renewed attention. Google's Calculator app has seen a few builds with each developer preview since it went from v7.21 to v7.3, and each one has included something of note.

Google Photos v1.21 Prepares To Give Free Unlimited Original Quality Backup To Nexus Devices, Sorting Options For Albums, And Add Exposure And Contrast Controls [APK Teardown]

Google Photos v1.21 Prepares To Give Free Unlimited Original Quality Backup To Nexus Devices, Sorting Options For Albums, And Add Exposure And Contrast Controls [APK Teardown]

Google I/O has taken its toll. At least that's the way it looks based on the fairly quiet week we've seen for app updates thus far. The biggest update to arrive was for Snapseed, which gained some fairly useful improvements for editing. The focus on images continued with an update to the Photos app, but it didn't appear to bring any notable new features, rather just a bug fix. However, a teardown of the app reveals quite a bit more. Google is lining up some cool improvements to the app, including new sorting methods for albums, new editing controls, and a pretty amazing promo for Nexus devices.

Photos v1.17 Enables Non-Destructive Photo Editing, Hints At Motorola Promo, Smart Rotation Recommendations, And A New Launcher Icon [APK Teardown + Download]

Photos v1.17 Enables Non-Destructive Photo Editing, Hints At Motorola Promo, Smart Rotation Recommendations, And A New Launcher Icon [APK Teardown + Download]

An update to the Google Photos app just rolled out, bringing the current version number up to v1.17. This release is pretty straightforward with just one notable change: photos can now be edited in a non-destructive fashion. In other words, you can make changes to a picture and still return to the original version if you like. That feature alone is certainly enough to make this a worthy upgrade, but a teardown provides some good clues about features that are probably coming in the next couple of releases, assuming they're not already here.

[Android 5.1 Feature Spotlight] Contacts Gets A Few Welcomed Tweaks

[Android 5.1 Feature Spotlight] Contacts Gets A Few Welcomed Tweaks

We've already posted plenty of interesting tidbits and changes from Android 5.1, but of course there's still more to uncover. It looks like in the latest version of Lollipop, Google has given the Contacts app a few welcomed tweaks.

With Lollipop 5.0, most of the Contacts app graduated to a slick new experience inspired by material, but for some reason the contact creation/editing screens clung to old holo paradigms.

The newly tweaked editing layout in Android 5.1 makes a decidedly more thoughtful use of horizontal lines and adheres to material design's standard keylines (at 16 and 72dp) making for a cleaner, clearer interface with helpful iconography highlighting each type of field.
