Today we’re launching Google Camera, a new app for your Android phone or tablet that makes it easy to take quick photos and videos. And being behind the lens just got more fun with new creative picture modes.

Sleek Design. The 100% viewfinder gets out of your way while capturing the maximum resolution of the scene (no dropped pixels). And the extra large capture button is easy to press so your eyes never lose sight of the subject.

Lens Blur. Emphasize the subject while blurring the background for an SLR-like shot with shallow depth-of-field (or bokeh). You can even change the subject in focus after taking the shot.

Improved Panorama. New higher resolution panoramas capture the full width and detail of a scene.

Photo Sphere. Immersive 360 degree photo spheres let you look up, down and all around...now at up to 50 megapixels! For the first time available on non-Nexus devices.

Google Camera is now available on the Play store (http://goo.gl/llsZjx), and works on all phones and tablets running Android 4.4+ KitKat. We’re just getting started, and in the months ahead we'll make Google Camera available to more devices, helping make photography easier, faster and more fun.

Check out our Research Blog to learn more (http://goo.gl/lUDfi8).

Yes, I admit I was rather surprised that +Gmail would pull this particular prank on its users.
Email is a means of communication. Sure, it can be used for personal means; having fun or whatever. But many people, including myself, use it for business too. And so, I expect my email provider to be professional and reliable.

Thank you +Gmail
 
Thanks to new improvements in how Gmail handles images, you’ll soon see all images displayed in your messages automatically across desktop, iOS and Android. So what does this mean for you? Simple: your messages are more safe and secure, your images are checked for known viruses or malware, and you’ll never have to press that pesky “display images below” link again.

Time to switch to Direct TV! It's probably Lassie, Rin Tin Tin and Caeser followed by QVC that is only doggie products! Perfect!

What!? "Surprisingly, this is the third time a cow has crashed through a roof in the area."
 
Holy cow! A Brazilian man is dead after a 3,000-pound bovine fell through the roof of his bedroom.

I heard about this on the radio this morning... apparently there's a hill nearby that an animal could wander from the hill right onto the roof.

Some great stuff announced at Google I/O yesterday.
 
*Welcome to #AutoEnhance  & #AutoAwesome *

Earlier today at Google I/O, +Vic Gundotra announced #AutoEnhance  and #AutoAwesome  - two new features to help make sharing your photos more fun and more creative. To help you become more familiar with these tools, here’s a brief Q&A along with some sample images to enjoy. 

Can you give me some more details on how Google+ will enhance my  photos?
Sure! Auto Enhance analyzes your photos as you upload them, then optimizes brightness, contrast, details, noise, focus, and many other factors in order to help them really shine. Just click on the Enhanced hover button on newly uploaded photos to see the results. You can also manually turn on Auto Enhance on older images by clicking on ‘More’ and select ‘Auto Enhance’.

Will the Auto Enhanced version overwrite my original photos?
No. We will never overwrite your original photo and Auto Enhance can be removed and reapplied at any time.

Will Google retroactively apply Auto Enhance to all of the photos that I’ve already uploaded?
Auto Enhance will only be applied to new images that you upload (via Auto Backup or to your Albums) and every image you add will always be private until you’re ready to share it. We will never apply Auto Enhance to images that you’ve already shared.

That’s great! So what’s Auto Awesome?
Whereas Auto Enhance helps make your uploaded images shine bright, Auto Awesome will look at your photos and create fun, new images to share your favorite moments. When we find the right arrangement of images, we’ll generate new Auto Awesome images and place them alongside your original photos. Just like Auto Enhance photos, they’ll remain private until you choose to share them, and we’ll never replace your images. 

What sort of photos can I expect to see with Auto Awesome?
With Auto Awesome, we’ll create animated images with our Motion photos, ultra wide sweeping scenes with Pano, and even help you show all of the details in your image with HDR. On top of that, if you’re at a party or with a group of friends, we’ll make it easy for you to create photobooth style collages with Mix and put together great looking group shots with Smile photos.
