Google Express: Perfect for Moving

One of the coolest things about my recent relocation to California is all of the amazing services that are now available to me. Coming from a small town near Cincinnati, even things like Uber were out of my reach.

Today I was really impressed with Google Express. For those not aware, Google Express is a shopping service that allows you to select items online from local retailers and then have those items show up at your door - often on the same day.

I spent today moving into a new apartment, so I needed the core essentials to get me started. I don't have a car yet,, so I looked for options to have those items delivered. Google Express seemed to be interesting, so I gave it a go, and I have to say that it was extremely smooth.

There were a couple items marked as "sold out" after placing my order, but I have a feeling that was a retailer issue (since Google Express actually goes to the retailers to buy the items before bringing them to you). I plan on re-ordering those items later in the week.

I'm also very happy with the packaging job they did. I bought things like pillows, towels, and an air mattress. Unlike Amazon, there was almost no wasted space in the boxes at all, which I really liked.

All in all, I'm thrilled with the service and will be placing more orders as I discover things that I'm missing. For the record, I love Amazon Prime, but Google Express may still get my money when I need things faster than my Prime's 2-day shipping speed.

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:

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

Chromebook-Ready VPN Options To Protect Your Privacy

VPN services are often touted as useful tools for securing your connection when using public Wi-Fi and evading location blocks on content, but what options are available for Chromebook owners?

+Austin Voecks totally agree. The lack of ovpn support is an amazing oversight, which I can only put down to the fact Google has addressed this using their internal systems, so none of their users feel our pain!

"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.

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

Chrome OS version 43 is rolling out now to most Chrome devices, and it brings a handful of new features. One of those is…

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

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

You can upload new photos or see the photos you previously uploaded at 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:

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.

It's time for something new: I've joined Google!

I'm thrilled to share that I recently joined the gTech Ads team at Google's Mountain View campus. It's a tremendous opportunity and I'm honored to be joining such an excellent team (they also happen to be really great people, which is a huge plus!).

Unfortunately, this does mean that my involvement in the Chrome OS communities will be smaller moving forward. More details on this will emerge in coming weeks.

I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who reached out after I announced my job search. I really appreciated all of the leads, and I'm very thankful for the interview advice, resume help, and other assistance that so many of you offered.

I also want to thank everyone who has helped to make the Chrome OS communities here and on reddit so strong and inviting. Those communities played a huge role in building my skill set, and I owe everything to the fantastic members who shared content, provided feedback, and were so kind to each other.

I look forward to really digging into this next step of my career. Thanks again, everyone! :)

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.

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!
