Google's Gmail controversy is everything people hate about Silicon Valley

  Google's Gmail controversy is everything people hate about Silicon Valley Developers blaming you for not knowing about data collection is why it’s so hard to trust tech right now.Don't like how Facebook shares your data with third-party developers? Too bad, it's right there in the privacy policy. How about how Twitter tracks your activity across websites? The company spelled that out in its data policy. (What? You didn't bother reading it?) And maybe you were upset when you learned last year that Unroll.Me was selling information taken from your email inbox. The company's CEO found that "heartbreaking," but that's how businesses make money from a free service.

After roughly nine months since Apple’s full-screen iPhone X hit the market, Google has at last updated its Inbox email app to support the device. In a 144MB update pushed out on the App Store today, Google says Inbox now supports Apple’s pricier iPhone variant, with little else by way of changes in the update text.

Effectively, this update just removes the black bars on the top and bottom of the screen so it more naturally fits the iPhone X’s display, with its funky 19.5:9 aspect ratio. For months now, users have been complaining about the lack of support, and Google acknowledged it was working on it back in April following the Gmail redesign.

This isn’t all about Google listening to users who’ve been clamoring for edge-to-edge support for Inbox for months. Rather, it’s likely that the company is abiding by Apple’s new iOS 11 requirement, effective this month, that “all iOS app updates submitted to the App Store must be built with the iOS 11 SDK and must support the Super Retina display of iPhone X.” Still, it’s nice to see the iOS version of Inbox get the love it deserves, even if its still missing key features like an “all inboxes” view, which it has on Android.

Google’s Phone app can now prevent some spam calls from interrupting you .
Google’s Phone app can now automatically filter out calls that it detects to be spam, sending them directly to voicemail. Your phone won’t ring, and you won’t even get a missed call notification for any calls that Google weeds out. If the spam callers leave a voicemail — you know, like the usual spiel about charges being filed against you over back-owed taxes — that will still find its way to your voicemail inbox. But again, there won’t be a notification about it. “You’ll still see filtered calls in your call history and be able to check any voicemail you receive,” Google says on its help page.
