Craving to spam stickers to your friends on Hangouts from the desktop? You'll be pleased to know it is now possible thanks to an update reaching Hangouts on the web and Chrome app. All the stickers you know and love (or not...
I've been uploading my photos from my PC hard drive to a folder called "Google Photos" in My Drive. I see now that the new Google Photos section is showing many of the photos. Are these duplicates? My uploads are in folders named, "date-location" (for instance 20150523 San Jose). I guess I'm confused on how photos are handled in Google Plus vs. My Drive vs. Google Photos. Are they just one file synced or duplicates? Should I be uploading to My Drive or Google Photos or does it matter? I use Drive on my Win 7 desktop and my Chromebook.
+Tom Husband That's a judgement call on your part. I wouldn't pay Google to store large photos, unless there were no place to let me store them for free, which I believe there is.But that is just me. :)
Question about Hangouts on Chrome/ChromeOS. Does having the Hangouts app and the hangouts extension cause them to conflict with each other? I assume that if I get rid of the extension that the app will continue running in the background. Should I delete one of the two?
+Matthew Valeri yeah after several tests, notifications with the app were not working on either computer and loading the app was slowing the chromebook's start up time, so I've uninstalled it and I'm sticking with the extension.
Cardboard looks interesting and I might be interest in the Japanese flash cards would be interesting if I wanted to learn Japanese. As for the rest, I'd be more interested in watching dancing kittens on YouTube.
finally made the jump to the Chrome OS Canary channel. Maybe some fun things will come being this far upstream. I'm liking the tweaks to the little details throughout as well. Sitting pretty at version 45 goinginto I/O tomorrow afternoon.
I use Chrome OS exclusively and don't have Photoshop or any of that post processing software. Is there a way for either my camera or G+ to add a small watermark or copyright text? Or would just naming the picture suffice? Thanks.
Computers are all-purpose machines and, sometimes, it looks like they have some kind of intelligence. Tonight my desktop computer with Linux Elementary decided, on his own initiative, to cook some fried eggs. I don't like fried eggs in the morning; so I trashed eggs and computer. It's a good excuse to get a Chromebox, isn't?
Hello world! I just bought my FIRST chromebook! Acer 11 G3 to be exact. Got it for 214 after tax. Loving it so far, always wanted a chromebook for almost 3 years....folks kept saying no. So i bought my own! I really love how insanely fast it boots up and the beauty of its simplicity. I already have a regular laptop for gaming, this is more for On-The-Go. Theres only 2 things that bug me though...the remote android proximity lock wont work along with my nexus 7...dont know why, maybe perhaps it isnt a cellphone, but a tablet...and secondly the fac the chrome icon isnt material like the rest of the icons...feels out of place. Other than that, i love this piece of hardware!
What better way to get pumped up for it but with FREE music for your device of choice.
Firefly Music Festival would like to give you a unique preview of this year's lineup. Download to hear some of the Firefly acts we're most excited about. - from site
25 great songs, all free, no catches. Unlike Google Play, no credit card needed just an email address. You have to agree to get occasional emails from Bandcamp, but it is easy enough to give them a fake email address if that is an issue.
Just head on over to Bandcamp and prosper. You can preview all the songs there and buy tickets to the festival too. (If they haven't sold out yet)
