Google has rolled out a new update for its Photos application aimed at the tablet users. Most popular Android phones fall into the "certified" category, but there are exceptions.

Android There is a new secret function provided by Google for mobile phones around the world, which has been revealed for some time, but the USA company has so far avoided offering it. According to the report, the original feature was scrapped because the system would record accidental taps, but the new, more refined version of Columbus will require a firm tap on the back.

9to5Google dug through the code of the most recent version of Google Duo and noticed that those with uncertified Android phones may soon be presented with warnings that say "Duo is going away soon" or "Because you're using an unsupported device, Duo will unregister your account on this device soon".

Fifthly, any issues involving other regional states must be discussed separately, and not as part of the nuclear talks. That approach can work elsewhere, but not with Iran, ' Mohammad Yavad Zarif, Iranian Foreign Minister, said.

Here's a nice little surprise: Google has quietly made the Google Photos UI more optimized on tablets. It's a much better use of a tablet's screen size.

Right at the top, there is the search field, making it easier for users to search for their images and videos. While for bigger devices like Chromebook, it appears at the left with a hint/prompt and alongside the Upload button. Google released the first developer preview for Android 11 in February previous year so we should be hearing about the new OS in just a few weeks. However, there is no change in the People, Places, and Things carousels. Beyond that, the Explore and Sharing tabs remain. Quick access to On Device, Utilities, Archive, and Trash, now open in full-screen pages.

A new update to the Android app may just change that for me and, if you're anything like me, for you as well. It is yet to go live for all users across the globe and is not available for everyone.
