BE AWARE that “Unlimited video storage at Google Photos has a catch” – Android Authority

If you are posting videos on Google Photos that have a file format that is not listed below; then, the file size will count against your online storage total. Video file sizes can add up quickly.

The Google Photos app icon.

If you use Google Photos to store video files, you likely are happy you have unlimited space (with some compression). However, there’s a new limitation to this unlimited storage.

The new policy took effect on December 6, 2018.

The supported video file formats are: .mpg, .mod, .mmv, .tod, .wmv, .asf, .avi, .divx, .mov, .m4v, .3gp, .3g2, .mp4, .m2t, .m2ts, .mts, and .mkv.

According to Android Police, Google Keep gets expanded canvas for hand-drawn notes…

Google’s note-keeping app, called “Google Keep”, just “keeps” getting better… This is by far one of my favorite, most used, apps on my devices…

According to the Android Police, “Google Keep is getting a small update today on both Android and the web, but it’s an important one if you use hand-drawing notes a lot. From now on, you won’t be constrained to a single screen for your drawing — instead, Keep will add more space at the bottom of the note so you can keep going. The first time you get to the bottom of the screen while drawing, you’ll see a pop-up explaining that more space has been added.”

From Gizmodo: These 22 Malware-Riddled Android Apps Might Be Draining Your Phone’s Battery

Malware is finding its’ way on people’s Android devices through apps that are downloaded from the Google Play Store. Google does a pretty good job of tracking these apps down, but sometimes it is to late and the app has already made its mark. Many of these apps had strong reviews. The battery draw occurs due to the app being on a constant run time of reporting back with information and possible grabs of your data.

On Thursday, anti-virus provider Sophos published a report describing its discovery of 22 Android apps that contained a variety of malware the company has named “Andr/Clickr-ad.” The apps come from a variety of small developers, and Sophos said that Google removed them from its Play store at the end of November. One of the offending apps, Sparkle Flashlight, had been downloaded more than a million times and many of them had strong reviews, according to Sophos.
