Lot of people amongst us are using youtube and are use too the offline feature of youtube. We save our favourite videos offline and watch them as many times we want without worrying about the internet usage.
Youtube had also launched an app of its own known Youtube Go. Using this app you will watch all those videos which you watch in youtube. You can also save your favourite videos and also can download them. This app consumes comparatively less data to stream videos over internet. If you go with saving the videos offline or downloading them then it shows the exact amount of data needed for it.
Suppose you have a video saved offline in the youtube go app and a friend of yours want that video but does not have internet connection.
Till now there was no feature present in youtube to share offline videos but now it is possible with youtube go. Now you can share the offline videos saved in one youtube go app to another youtube go app. The feature is same as share it app allows you to transfer files offline and youtube go’s offline sharing is same as share it.
You can only share youtube videos which are already saved offline in the youtube go app.
We all click pictures from our smartphones and most of us store their photos in digital memories like memory cards, smartphones, etc. Memory cards also have a average life span. They do get damaged over time. If you think to store all the pictures in memory cards, think what will happen to our photos if the memory card gets damaged. All the pictures which you had stored will be lost forever.
Google is preparing an update to Google Photos app which an provide an option to print photos into a photo album. This will cost nominally, photo albums will serve great quality detachable printouts.
This feature will be rolled out first in the US and will be expanded to more parts of the world.
This feature is expected to launch through an update later this year.
More updates are yet to come in google photos with the update of photo albums. All this extra updates will come later this year.
Often we click photographs of monuments, restaurants, hotels we love but after some time we forget the place where the picture was taken. Google is launching a system called the google lens. Google lens automatically identifies the monuments in the picture and will give all the regarding it like the phone number, timmigs of visit, etc.
Suppose you saw a banner and wanted to call to the number written in that banner. Now when you sit to call, a big problem is that we cannot copy anything from a image. Google lens will help you and automatically show a option to call on that number in one click. We do not know the date of its launch but is expected to launch with Android O. Google has not confirmed anything about its launch so do not get misguided.

Hi friends, many of you must have used the autofill feature of chrome ?
For those who don’t know about autofill, it is a feature of chrome which saves the information you enter and allows you to type that information somewhere else in a single tap. Suppose you have logged in to you Facebook account through chrome browser, now whenever you will again try to log in to your facebook account the I’d and password will be filled in a single tap. This is the functionality of autofill.
In Android O, you can use autofill in third party apps like twitter, evernote, gmail, etc. It means that not just chrome but all other apps of your smartphone.
