Didn't expect this to hit and be available so quickly, but here it is.

Basically you can sync all of your passwords with Chrome, and if apps have set themselves up right you can sign into them with a single tap if you've already signed into their website (and vice versa).
Google quietly rolled out a new password service that builds on its existing Chrome sync system. With the announcement of Google Play Services 7.5 during all of the Google I/O fun yesterday, Google quietly slipped in a new password syncing feature that developers can take advantage of. What we didn't know is that it'd be going live for anyone to use so quickly, and now the new...

+Andrew Martonik is that on desktop chrome as well? I always thought that was one of those things that needed fixing. Maybe the fixed it and didn't send me a pm :)

So Google Photos is just a nicer looking interface for what we used to call Google+ Photos.

Oh, and the app is actually standalone, rather than part of the Google+ app.

Still has plenty of the same problems that the old version did... without adding too much extra.

I used some method I found for transferring albums from flickr (think I think http://www.flickrtoplus.com/) which worked pretty well except all the dates are messed up. And I can't find a way to fix them.

+tobby o You still get the ability to forward your number to other phones, just like google voice, but you do lose a few features. Not entirely sure how the process works if you want to drop Fi entirely, though.

So all of this happened. LOTS of analysis and round-ups coming to make sense of it all.
Google I/O is the company's yearly developer conference, held at Moscone West in San Francisco's South of Market district. It's where thousands of developers, partners and press come together to see the latest announcements on Google's platforms, services and (usually) products. If history repeats itself, we'll get a bunch of new Android news — and probably a peek at the upcoming M...

Google Photos is pretty good, and will work for a lot of people, but it still needs to more clearly separate from Google+ and improve some of the main features.
 
Google Photos is finally here, and that means we have a new photography tool to play around with on our phones and computers. After being tied completely to Google+ (woefully) for some time, Photos has finally been broken out into its own apps for Android, iOS and the web. Google Photos,… #android

It seems as though Google Wallet won't be disappearing completely, but its functionality is going to be seriously decreased to make way for Android Pay.
When Android Pay was unveiled at Google I/O, questions swirled about Google Wallet — now we have a better idea of what's going on. Android Pay is a new initiative from Google that seems to be a more comprehensive effort at a payments system, hitting key points and features that Google Wallet never did. With Android Pay, you'll be able to have multiple debit and credit cards associated...

This is the Android TV box to get, and it isn't even close. I'm seriously enjoying my time with this thing.
While there isn't a ton of competition in the Android TV device space, NVIDIA has a clear leader in its Shield Android TV box. The quick take The Shield Android TV meets nearly every requirement when it comes to an all-in-one set top box for your entertainment center. You get 4K video support, surround sound pass-through, HDMI-CEC control, an infrared port, and support for all of the...

A very neat idea, actually. You don't even have to choose what to sync — anything in your clipboard gets copied over.
This morning, an unannounced app by Microsoft for Android, iOS, Windows Phone and Windows 10 was revealed. OneClip leverages OneDrive to easily copy and paste documents, photos, text, phone numbers and more to share between your devices. We go hands-on with the apps on Android, Windows 10, and Windows Phone. Watch our video. Setup is easy. You synchronize devices by using...
