Well needed redesign looks great.
Google announced today a partnership with the Detroit Institute of Arts to showcase it’s Project Tango augmented reality technology. Visitors to the DIA will be able to use a Lenovo Phab 2 Pro phone to experience enhanced installations throughout the museum.
Great move by Google. This provides a unique and valuable introduction to augmented reality and Tango.
Because Hangouts is built on a Google account, because it’s deeply integrated with Google apps, the Apps suite [things like Drive, Docs, etc.], Gmail, Calendar and so on, it’s seen much more success in the enterprise.

Apple might be getting rid of the 16GB iPhone in September, but we’re not quite there yet, and in the meantime Google has created a fantastic Google Photos commercial that showcases the app’s “free up space” feature. The ad features one missed photo after another — selfies, graduations, birthdays, Bigfoot sightings, etc. — all because of a phone that has run out of storage. (And yes, this is a headache that some Android users also face.) Google wants you to know that it’s come up with a solution to this potential crisis: once they’ve been backed up to the cloud, Google Photos can erase the local copy of photos and videos captured with your smartphone.
