Google Updates Biweekly Post

Publication Date: June 11, 2014

Google Apps

Updates to core Google Apps and the major services like Google+. Also major updates that may affect the Macalester community.

Google Calendar is a wonderful tool. While many people may know that you can import pre-made calendars with lists of various holidays in them, there's a ton more cool stuff you can do.

If you’re looking to add some excitement to your Docs (and plenty of other sites), you need to check out this Chrome extension.

Check out this recap of Gooru’s 7 favorite updates from the month of May, complete with images, videos, GIFs and more!

Several accessibility improvements have been made to Google Sites, ranging from new keyboard shortcuts for editors (like Alt+Shift+F for opening the editor toolbar) to better viewing experiences for readers.

Google launches several features aimed at improving integration between Google Sites and other products.

A date picker has been added to the advanced search function in Gmail

Download the Hangout plugin for Microsoft Outlook® and you will be ready to add, manage and join Hangout video calls.

Gmail got a small update on Android today, adding a "Save to Drive" button, spam improvements, and a few interface changes.

You can download new, standalone mobile apps for Docs and Sheets—with Slides coming soon. Don’t forget to add a passcode!

Good-bye party, anyone?

You can adjust and customize images you have added to Google Docs and Slides by cropping or masking them, and by adding borders.

No more sifting through photos for your best shots, racking your brain for the sights you saw, or letting your videos collect virtual dust.

Google Technology

News about other Google products and technology.

That’s why we’re adding support for multiple accounts to tablets with Google Play for Education.

Google Business

Google Business news, including policies, user privacy, politics and legal issues.
Google is making it far more difficult — and far more expensive — for the National Security Agency and the intelligence arms of other governments around the world to pierce their systems.

It’s been a busy week for entertainment junkies, with the return of [oitnb] and a (yet another) huge episode of [game of thrones]. But people searched for more serious subjects, including the anniversary of [d-day] and a changing of the guard in Spain.

Some email is more secure than others.

Put simply, Google is not where we want to be when it comes to diversity.

Google Extra

Other Google side projects, including art, science and fun stuff.

There are more than 4,000 works included in a vast new online gallery of street art.
