Despite competition from tech giants like Google and Microsoft, Dropbox has remained one of the best cloud storage options because it just syncs files. However, the desktop app was recently overhauled to become a hub for all your work, and now Dropbox is introducing a new feature for people collaborating on a project.

Google Play adds one-tap options for leaving all beta programs, clearing wishlist, and more

Google Play now has quite a few opt-in features for apps. You can join a beta program, add apps to your wishlist, register to get notifications when apps/games are released, and so on. If you want to wipe all of these settings at once, now you can.
A new ‘Google Play preferences’ section in the Play settings is now visible for some users (it seems to be a server-side rollout). Inside, you’ll find one-tap options to clear your wishlist, leave all beta programs, unregister for all upcoming events, and remove all app/game pre-registrations.

Twitch app gets new coat of paint in v8 beta release

I can’t think of any complaint I’ve ever had with the Twitch Android app, but Twitch isn’t resting on its laurels. A beta for the 8.0 update is now available on Google Play with a refreshed design and other minor changes.
The design has been refreshed to match other modern Android apps, with copious amounts of white and larger fonts (don’t worry, there’s still a dark mode). The actual stream viewing experience isn’t much different. Read MoreTwitch app gets new coat of paint in v8 beta release was written by the awesome team at Android Police.

Gboard 8.4 rolling out with taller emoji keyboard and dictionary import/export for some [APK Download]

Gboard has long become more than a simple keyboard app. It also allows you to send rich media files like GIFs, emoji, ASCII symbols, stickers, and even little Google Search cards for quick reference when chatting. So many different options to choose from threaten to make the keyboard feel overcrowded; to help alleviate that, Google is testing a taller media picker for the new Gboard 8.4 release.

As you can see in the screenshots below, the taller keyboard lets you view many more emoji, stickers, and GIFs at once, although the added space naturally comes at the expense of real estate for the rest of the screen — Google Keep looks outright cramped.

Google Photos product lead confirms manual face tags, timestamp edits on Android, and other features in the works

Yesterday, Google Photos’ product lead, David Lieb, took to Twitter to ask users for direct feedback about the app. The goal, as he said, was to be made aware of outstanding bugs, possible performance improvements, and most importantly feature requests. The conversation lasted for many hours, during which David replied to many of the messages sent, confirmed a few features are coming, and heard what everyone had to say.

Topping the upcoming features is the ability to manually tag a face, which is said to be on the roadmap. Read MoreGoogle Photos product lead confirms manual face tags, timestamp edits on Android, and other features in the works was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
