Google Photos Hide-Clutter feature

Gmail is one of the most popular email apps on Android, and it is regularly being updated with new features and improvements. One of the latest changes is the introduction of a navigation rail for Gmail on Android tablets.

A navigation rail replaces the bottom bar that Gmail used to have on tablets, and it offers some advantages. Now, the navigation rail and the compose button are always visible and do not disappear when scrolling. This makes it easier to switch between Gmail, Chat, Spaces, and Meet, or to start a new email.

When the tablet is in landscape mode, the navigation rail is on the left side of the screen, and it shows the icons and labels of the four tabs.

The new feature for Gmail on Android tablets is rolling out, and it may not be available for everyone yet. It is available with version 2023.11.12.x of the app.

Google Messages Selfie GIF feature

Google Messages is enhancing its messaging service by introducing a new feature that allows users to create a Selfie GIF. This feature enables users to record animated GIFs of up to three seconds directly within the messaging app.

The search giant also integrated a quick-access prompt within chats for creating these GIFs, similar to other interactive prompts for sharing photos or initiating video calls.

To use this feature, one must long-press the camera icon in a message thread, which will bring up the camera viewfinder and gallery. The Selfie GIF option is separate from the app’s custom camera.

The recording process of Selfie GIF is very intuitive with a countdown to guide users in Google Messages. Although there are no editing options, users can manually start and restart recording. The completed GIFs are automatically saved to the user’s camera roll, making sharing easy.

The support documentation for the Selfie GIF feature is already available, but the feature itself has not been widely released on either the beta or stable versions of the app. Hopefully, Google will soon make it available for Android users.

Google to sync permissions across Android phones and Wear OS

Android Wear OS sync feature

Google is planning to introduce a new feature for Wear OS that will allow app permissions to be synchronized between an Android smartphone and a Wear OS smartwatch.

Initially hidden within the Pixel Watch companion app, the feature will allow users to grant permissions on their phone, which will then automatically apply to their smartwatch. The “Sync permissions from phone” option is part of a new “Device details” submenu within the companion app.

According to the information via the Google News channel, the new feature is developed to simplify the user experience by removing the need to individually set permissions for apps on different devices.

For example, if a user allows a navigation app to access their location on their phone, the same permission will be set on the smartwatch without any additional steps.

While the “Sync permissions from phone” option remains inactive for now, its activation could significantly enhance the Wear OS experience. This feature is expected to extend beyond the Pixel Watch to other Wear OS devices.
