The Drive Android API has added Completion Events to tell you when actions are committed to the server and make it possible to respond to conflicts. Check out this Google Developers Live video for an overview of Completion Events and Conflict Resolution from +Jen King, technical lead for the Drive Android API team:

Background events and the DriveEventService 

Other changes include an updated File Picker UI which uses Material Design and adds Recent and Starred views, a new setParents() method, and Contents has been replaced with a simpler DriveContents class.

The Drive Mobile Web UI has been massively improved!
There may be a time when you need to view a file in Google Drive from a phone or tablet that isn’t yours. When that happens, you’ll likely visit the mobile version of Google Drive in the browser. Starting today, you’ll find a much improved mobile web version of Drive that’s faster and easier to use. The apps are still the most optimized experience, but if you find that isn’t an option, the mobile web will do the job better than ever.

The new version is rolling out over the next several days. Visit http://drive.google.com from your mobile browser to give it a try.

Street View (including Business View) and more control over indoor maps is now available in the Android Maps API v2. It's great to see +Runtastic and +Walgreens already taking advantage of these new features :-)

Drive Android API updates are rolling out now!
Google Play services 4.3

We're now rolling out a new version of Google Play services to Android devices worldwide. This update includes new APIs as well as a number of new features to existing ones:

Analytics API (new!) - Google Analytics and Tag Manager are now part of Google Play services

Google Play Games services update - Our new Game Gifts API enables games to send virtual in-game requests to anyone in a player’s circles or through player search. Details at http://goo.gl/2mwM1o.

Drive API - Change notifications, offline content, and more

Address API (new!) - Let your users provide complete addresses in a single click

You'll be able to get started with the new APIs as soon as the Google Play services rollout is complete -- a process we expect to take several days. We'll then release the updated Google Play services SDK and you'll be able to download it through the Android SDK manager. Watch for more information coming soon.
