We're excited to officially launch Nearby: a new proximity API for iOS and Android. Devices--even older devices as far back as Gingerbread and the iPhone 4--can now find and talk to each other. We believe this will unlock new types of interactions and turn interactions that used to be cumbersome, into single-touch transactions.

It's the same technology we used to build Chromecast Guest Mode, but we're making it available to all developers.

The API is part of Google Play Services on Android and a CocoaPod on iOS. Developers will find familiar publish-subscribe functionality--that relies on copresence. The API is free, unauthenticated, and flexible--allowing developers to control the user experience of their proximity feature.

We hope you like it and we're excited to see how developers can innovate with it!

We're very excited to launch it to the world today!  I've been working on this since October, when I left Google, and we had a lot of breakthroughs and engineering accomplishments to reach the launch today.  And I think all the work paid off.  The articles I get in my stream are truly relevant to my work and represent the diversity of my career interests.  I hope everyone will give it a go and let me know what you think!

Check out the next generation of Gmail!

I've been using this now for a little while, and I really like the reminder, snooze and grouped conversation features.
 
Today, we’re introducing something new. It’s called Inbox. Years in the making, Inbox is by the same people who brought you Gmail, but it’s not Gmail: it’s a completely different type of inbox, designed to focus on what really matters. 

 Inbox is a new product from the Gmail team. Come try it with us.

This past week I attended a family reunion in Brian Head, UT.  While there I got to go on some great hikes and see some really pretty views at Cedar Breaks National Monument.  It's a beautiful place!

7 Things To Love About the New Google Photos App

I’m super excited about today’s Google Photos launch! The team has been working hard to deliver a wonderful experience across Android, iOS, and web. I wanted to highlight a few of my favorite features for those of you who might not have had a chance to play with the app yet. So without further ado; 7 things to love about the new Google Photos app.

Never lose a photo again. Auto Backup is one of my very favorite features. Google Photos can upload every photo you take and store it securely in the cloud so that you can view it across devices, and keep your memories safe in the event that you lose or break your phone. You can even install our desktop uploader (https://photos.google.com/apps) get quick access to your entire photo library in the palm of your hand.

Store all your photos and videos online. Forever. For free. We’ll store all your photos and videos in high quality (16mp and 1080p respectively). at 16 megapixels, that’s big enough to print at 24x16! Oh yeah, and it’s completely free :)

Search your photo library like a magician. Looking for that photo of your dog playing in the snow from 5 years ago? No problem! Google Photos’ new search feature will help you find it instantly. Search your photo library just as easily as you search the web. Seriously… it’s amazing.

Never run out of space on your phone again. I don’t know about you, but I get really tired of having to delete photos and videos from my phone every time I run low on space. The new Photos app can detect when you’re running low on storage, and will offer to help clean up old photos from your device that have been safely backed up to the cloud.

Share photos anywhere. Want to share on Facebook? Instagram? Twitter? No problem! You no longer need a Google+ account to get all the Google Photos goodness.

Easily make gorgeous movies with your photos and videos. Google Photos comes with a beautiful movie creation and editing platform. Just pick the photos and videos you want to include, choose music and visual effects, and you’re done! Google Photos will make a beautiful, professional-looking movie in seconds that would take minutes or hours in traditional movie making apps.

Your very own personal assistant. Everyone who installs the new Photos app will also get a personal assistant. Your assistant works around the clock to make cool things from your photo library like stories, movies, animations, collages, and more. These creations show up automatically in your Assistant view and you can choose whether you want to keep them or not. All you have to do is use your phone and let your assistant do the hard work!

So those are some of my favorite things about the new Google Photos app. There’s still a ton of other cool stuff to discover. What are your favorite features?

There is no people-tag functionality, perhaps because new +Google Photos is not a "social network". So can I search for people in my photos? It will be nice if I could.

In today's mobile world, fast and reliable connectivity is almost second nature. But even in places like the U.S., where mobile connections are nearly ubiquitous, there are still times when you turn to your phone for that split-second answer and don't have fast enough speed. Or you can't get calls and texts because you left your phone in a taxi (or it got lost in a couch cushion for the day). As mobile devices continually improve how you connect to people and information, it's important that wireless connectivity and communication keep pace and be fast everywhere, easy to use, and accessible to everyone. 

That's why today we’re introducing Project Fi, a program to explore this opportunity by introducing new ideas through a fast and easy wireless experience.

I saw some deer this morning on the way to work (in the middle of a residential neighborhood).  That's not unheard of in the northwest, but I don't see them every day!  Beautiful creatures.

Ah, yes, I should have said I don't see them every day :-)  Eugene is really pretty.  I grew up in Portland and went to Eugene a few times.
