An update is rolling out now to the Google+ Photos app for Chrome that officially disables all functionality.

With the recent launch of Google Photos, we were told that Google+ Photos would be shutting down. The time has came, and version 1.580.2 turns the app off for good.

When launching the app, users will now see a brief end-of-life message, and are then prompted to visit Google Photos on the web.

If you are missing the automatic backup functionality that this app provided, you may want to check out the Cloud Import feature built into the Chrome OS Files app. Please note that backing up photos using this feature will count against your Drive storage, regardless of your Google Photos upload settings. Learn more here:

https://support.google.com/chromebook/answer/6206527

If you have any feedback about these changes, please send it to the Chrome team by pressing Alt+Shift+I on your keyboard, and to the Google Photos team by selecting the "Help and Feedback" option in the Google Photos menu on the web.

For now, it seems that you can uninstall the old Google+ Photos app. It's no longer going to be useful :(

I'll have to pay more attention to how downloads are being dealt with on the Photos web app. I've been using it, but never use removable media with my Chromebooks (my phone is my camera), so I haven't run across the difference in how Google+ Photos and the Photos app deals with an SD card, for example.

It's becoming increasingly apparent that Google just isn't caring much about Chrome OS...or the web platform... anymore. (An outcome I've been worrying about ever since they started talking about running Android on Chromebooks.)

I guess you're just supposed to run the Android Photos app on your Chromebooks... o_O

An update to both the App Runtime for Chrome (Beta), as well as ARC Welder are rolling out now.

This update, between version 44.4410.370.0 and 45.5021.398.0 includes a number of fixes, but the big news here is that ARC is now based on Android Lollipop (5.0) instead of Android Kitkat.

The Chrome team will be contacting developers to let them know of the change soon, but they do expect some things to still be unstable for the time being. If you currently use ARC to publish your Android app for Chrome OS, you may want to give your app a test with the new version.

Please note that you should only receive this update if you are running Chrome M45 or greater, which is currently the developer channel.

"Because you can" doesn't always mean you should.

Yes, that's a Toshiba Chromebook 2 docked into an old Apple Multiple Scan 17 Display (M2494).

The display uses DB-15, so I have a small direct adaptor to VGA, then a proper conversion adapter to go from HDMI to VGA. Sadly, when I daisychain in my USB Type C to HDMI adaptor, it fails to work properly, so my Pixel can't power this for now. Apple sells a Type C to VGA convertor, but it's too expensive for my taste at the moment :)

Thankfully I'm able to report that the spacetime continuum remains intact despite my best efforts to disrupt it.

One of the cool new Chrome OS feature is auto correction for physical keyboards.

This feature is rolling out now with Chrome OS version 43. The gist is that it will automatically correct misspellings as you type, without the need to go back and right-click to use traditional spell check. It appears to be disabled by default, however. If you're the type of person that wants to opt in and give it a spin, I have the full instructions up on Medium.

https://medium.com/@craigtumblison/how-to-enable-physical-keyboard-auto-correction-on-your-chromebook-4c6de5d99d3d

Please feel free to send feedback to the developers using Alt+Shift+I after you have had a chance to use it.

Sunsetting the Google+ Photos Chrome app.

It seems that in light of the recent Google Photos launch, the Google+ Photos app for Chrome will be shut down on July 21, 2015. The following information is from the help center announcement.


What's changing

The Google+ Photos app won’t work anymore. Any photos that you've uploaded with the app are safe and won't be deleted. You can see the photos you previously uploaded at photos.google.com.

You won't be able to view photos or upload new ones with the app after July 21, 2015. View and upload photos using photos.google.com instead.

You can upload new photos or see the photos you previously uploaded at photos.google.com. You won’t be able to view your photos offline at this time.

If you're on a Chromebook, you can also upload your photos to Google Drive with Cloud Backup.


What isn't changing

Google+ Photos isn't going away. We're launching Google Photos to give you an even better way to manage your photos online.


You can find the full details here:

https://support.google.com/plus/answer/6238059


You can learn more about the Cloud Backup feature built-into Chrome OS devices here:

Any idea why they did'nt implement text search into the photo's app either from the description/comments or even OCR within photos. One would think it would be the most obvious and easiest starting point for search. Finding text in street signs, pictures of menus, comments, descriptions seems like some great context but was completely omitted. Running a search on Sheet should pull up this image but doesn't. https://goo.gl/photos/okYAVmJL4NZcBvdY8

Meet the brand new Hangouts app for Chrome!

The Hangouts for Chrome app is getting a large update today that includes a brand new view. To be clear, this update affects the Hangouts app (the floating bubbles) and not the older Chrome extension.

The bubbles aren't gone, however, and you have the choice to easily switch between them in the settings. I'm finding the new view feels more like a true messenger app, which I've always wanted Hangouts to be.

You can force the update right now by opening a new tab, visiting chrome://extensions, ticking the "Developer Mode" box, and then clicking the "Update Extensions Now" button.

What do you think of the new view? Do you prefer the floating bubbles, or a more app-like design?

The Chrome Dev Editor app is no longer being actively developed.

Don't worry though, the team says the project will continue to live on Github and they plan on accepting pull requests from the community.

In their own words, the team says that the goals of the project have been met, namely that they were able to build a complex app on top of the Chrome platform. Now that it is complete, they want to start investing in new things. That's not at all unusual for the way Google does business.

Hopefully some enthusiastic developers will step in and either officially take over the project or create a popular fork. I would really like to see the work that was done continue to be useful.
 
When we started the Chrome Dev Editor project, our goal was to prove that a native app as sophisticated as an IDE can be built on the Chrome platform. In building the Chrome Dev Editor, we have pushed the Chrome Apps platform forward for all developers by introducing new features such as directory write support and improving existing features such as syncable file system. As we achieved that goal and as Chrome DevTools has been improving continuously, we felt it made less sense to continue investment in Chrome Dev Editor. To that effect, we’ve decided to stop our active investment in Chrome Dev Editor and we don’t plan on further development. However, we’ll do our best to merge your Pull Requests from our GitHub site. Many thanks for your feedback and support.

It's time for me to start something new - a job search!

As some of you may know, I recently completed my degree program at Miami University. I'm proud of the work I was able to do there while working as a student tutor and earning my degree. As that phase of my life has come to a close, I'm preparing for the next.

If I may borrow a few minutes of your time, I have attached a public copy of my resume below along with a cover letter written specifically for you (a random Internet user).

This community has been incredibly kind to me over the past few years and I feel honored to play a role in overseeing the communities that I do. My ideal job would allow me to continue to engage in the Chrome OS community, while also bringing new challenges to the table. Whether that means working with a Google Apps Reseller to help businesses see the benefits of Chrome, supporting Chrome in the field, or even simply managing a much larger community, I'm ready.

If you know of an organization that seems like a good fit, or may be looking for an applicant like me, please feel free to let me know. I deeply appreciate any extra leads that the community can provide.

Thanks to you, Internet user, for everything you've done. Let's do something really cool together soon :)

Can't make it to Google I/O? That's okay, you can still join a live chat and discuss the keynote as it happens with other fans!
 
You're Invited to a Google I/O Live Chat!

Fellow Chromie,

What's better than watching a Google I/O live stream video? Talking about what's being announced with fellow geeks!

Following the success of the last couple of years, the Google+ and reddit Chrome OS communities will be jointly hosting a chat room on IRC for all our fellow Chrome OS enthusiasts. Think of it as one big party, and you're all invited.

We've picked IRC because it is a neutral platform that is better suited for real-time discussion than either Google+ or reddit truly is. It's also super easy to use, doesn't require the creation of new accounts, and will work on Chrome devices with ease.

Speaking of the "ease" aspect, if you're new to IRC we've compiled a getting started document that offers you the choice of installing a Chrome Packaged App, or connecting directly from a browser tab using a web version. Either way, your Chrome device will be a portal to the party.

Feel free to ask any questions you may have in this thread.

We look forward to seeing you this Thursday!

Spending some time with the Amazon Dash button: a mini review.

You may have heard about the Amazon Dash button around April Fool's day. It was announced a little early, and many people automatically assumed it was little more than a fun hoax. It wasn't - and the buttons are now shipping to early adopters (clickers?).

Three arrived on my doorstep today, and I've spent some time trying to size them up. These are my thoughts so far.


Unboxing

The packaging is designed quite well. The buttons themselves are small, and the packaging was too. It has a clear plastic window on the front allowing you to quickly spot which button is which before you open them. Each button is marked with a brand name, and from my testing they don't appear to be programmable.

As is common with many Amazon branded products, it comes in "frustration free packaging", which I found to be a correct assessment.


Setup

These buttons are WiFi devices. Yes, that's right, WiFi devices. To set them up you need to install the Amazon Shopping app on your mobile phone (not simply the "Amazon" app - it failed without an error message several times until I realized I needed a different app). Once you have the correct app, set up is a breeze. It guides you step by step to activating the button, connecting to your WiFi network, and then choosing which quantity of the product you want to order.

The setup works by connecting your smartphone directly to the button, and then passing along your WiFi network credentials. Chromecast owners will recognize the process.

For those curious about the internals of the device, Matt over at Amateur Radio has a tear down with some interesting details. He speculates the cost to make them are probably higher than what Amazon is selling them for. Are brands making up for the difference, or is Amazon taking the loss?

http://www.amateurradio.com/inside-the-802-11bgn-amazon-dash-button/


Canceling an order

My biggest question revolved around canceling an order once it has been placed, because let's face it, if you use of these you're going to need to at some point. The process is the same as any Amazon purchase. It does send you a notification to your smartphone after an order has been placed, but it took mine almost 10 minutes to arrive. Depending on how quickly Amazon can process orders, that may be too long for an accidental press.

There is a setting that prevents multiple presses from registering multiple orders. It can be overridden, but by default it is designed to save you from 30 orders of Tide showing up at your door.


Conclusion

I'm probably not going to be using these things, at least not yet. There is limited brand selection at the moment, but hopefully it will be expanded soon.

I can imagine a future where the inside doors of pantries are lined with these in a vending machine like fashion, allowing us to quickly reorder chips or popcorn when it is running low. Detergent and paper towels are handy too, but they don't appeal to me when I'm hungry, and that's when I'm most likely to press a button :)

Want your own? Stock appears to be low, but hit the link below to keep an eye on the availability of the Tide version:

http://www.amazon.com/Tide-Dash-Button-Limited-Release/dp/B00WJ12MQ8/


Here's the official landing page for the Dash button program:

https://www.amazon.com/oc/dash-button


As always, I'm happy to answer questions! :)
