Google+ Photos

Au revoir, Google+ Photos. In a post to Google+, ironically enough, Google has (unsurprisingly) announced that starting on August 1st, it will be sunsetting its Google+ Photos app in favor of the recently launched Google Photos. First the Android version of the app will stop working, followed by the iOS and web apps shortly thereafter. The company says the move to axe Google+ Photos is being made in an “effort to ensure everyone has the best photos experience we can deliver.”

As of today, Google Voice has been added to Google Takeout, a service which allows you to quickly export data from specific Google applications. You can now export voice communications (transcripts too) with voicemail and greetings as mp3s, phone numbers as a vcard, and text messages as html.

The service lets you create a quick full archive of all your data, or select just Voice or another service. You can check out Google Takeout now, which also allows you to download data from other applications including your contacts, stream and circles from Google+, Picasa Web Albums, and your Google Profile info. expand full story

Check out that fresh navigation bar!

In correspondence with Google’s release of Plus, Google has released a new service called Google Takeout. Google Takeout allows users to take their data out of the cloud from a few of Google’s products. The products so far included in Takeout are Buzz, Contacts and Circles, Picasa Web Albums, and Profile. The data from these sites are put in a small .zip file, and inside you’ll be able to view your data. This service is directly related to Google’s Data Liberation Front. What a nice little tool, Google.
