With Fuchsia, Google’s upcoming OS for phones and computers, comes a chance to revamp and rebuild existing Android experiences and build them deeper into the operating system. In this week’s Fuchsia Friday, we’re looking closer at how Fuchsia has replaced the app drawer, and what seems to be an exciting reimagining of Instant Apps-like functionality.

Today we’ve got a Chrome extension that brings the ‘view image’ button back to Image Search, some Google Pixel 2 owners reporting poor battery life and phones running warm after February security patch, and Google rolling out tools for editing and sharing screenshots in the Google app.
In April of last year, the Google app began testing a built-in screenshot editor. Over subsequent updates, the app made some tweaks to the functionality, however it has yet to rollout to everyone. Today, the feature is finally doing so with version 7.21 and provides users with sharing and editing tools for screenshots taken in the Google Feed and Search.
As Google noted during its Q4 2017 earnings call earlier this month, the company is planning on hiring thousands of more people in 2018, which will require office and data center expansion. The company further detailed those U.S. plans today as it breaks ground on its first of several new facilities.
