Google Now On Tap Can Share Clean, Notification-Free Screenshots

Android (6.0): It’s no secret that Google Now On Tap was a little disappointing when it first came out. Now it’s getting one handy feature. You can use it to easily share screenshots. It even removes all the clutter in your status bar.

Normally, to take a screenshot on Android, you have to hold down the power and volume-down buttons at the same time. While this is workable, it can be a little awkward. Now On Tap has added a share button that takes a screenshot after you simply hold down the home button, which is considerably easier. As a bonus, the screenshot won’t include anything in your status or navigation bars. So, if you’re annoyed at having to remove notifications or dislike the clutter, this method will be way better. The new method requires the latest version of the Google app, which you can download from APK Mirror here.

Google Launches Shared Albums in Google Photos

Google To Start Showing Tweets in Search Results in Real Time

Google announced the release of Shared Albums in Google Photos, allowing users to easily share related photos and videos with multiple users in a single space.

With Shared Albums, users can invite others to add their own photos and videos to a specific album. Once multiple users have joined an album, participants will receive notifications when new items are added. Users can save the photos and videos in a Shared Album to their own Google Photos library, even if they weren’t the original photographer.


To create a Shared Album on mobile, users can select some of their own content and tap the Shared Album option instead of creating a normal album. From there, users can send the album link to anyone they’d like to join. Shared Albums can be accessed by users on iOS, Android and the Web.

In addition, Google brought its “free up space” button to Google Photos on iOS, following its release in Google Photos on Android last month. The feature allows users to quickly delete photos and videos from their device if they’ve already been backed up to Google Photos.

Google Photos is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store and Google Play.
