Lot of people are using youtube and are also use too the offline feature of youtube. They save their favorite videos offline and watch them as many times they want without worrying about the internet usage.
Youtube had also launched an app of its own known Youtube Go. Using this app you can watch all those videos which you can 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 save the videos offline or download them then will 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.
3. Google Photos
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 may get damage 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.
Getting the pictures printed into a photo album is a better option. A photo album will definitely stay with you for a longer time without being damaged.
Google is preparing an update to Google Photos app which will 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.
4. Google Lens
Often we click photographs of monuments, restaurants, hotels 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, time 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.
