Google’s ‘.new’ shortcut now works with calendar entries

  Google’s ‘.new’ shortcut now works with calendar entries Google has added a new way to quickly create calendar entries when using a browser. If you head over to “cal.new” or “meeting.new,” you’ll find it takes you to a blank Google Calendar entry, ready for you to fill out its details. It’s a small feature, but it means you don’t have to open up your entire calendar if you just want to add a single meeting.I’m a big fan of Google’s “.new” top-level domains. The company already lets you use them to create G Suite documents (I literally use “docs.new” every working day), and the company recently extended the functionality to creating Google Keep notes with “keep.new.

Facebook is releasing a new tool today that will allow its users to transfer photos directly to Google Photos.

The tool is being released initially in Ireland, and will be available worldwide in the first half of 2020.

“For almost a decade, we’ve enabled people to download their information from Facebook,” explains Steve Satterfield, director of privacy and public policy at Facebook. “The photo transfer tool we’re starting to roll out today is based on code developed through our participation in the open-source Data Transfer Project.”

This Data Transfer Project also includes participants such as Apple, Google, Microsoft, Twitter, and others. Facebook says it’s starting with Google Photos initially, but other services could be included in the future. Facebook is testing the tool in Ireland, and it will refine it based on feedback from users.

This tool will be useful for Google Photos users that don’t automatically backup pictures from their phones. If you’re a Facebook and Google Photos user who does backup photos, then it’s likely that most photos posted to the social network are already backed up on Google’s service.

Latest Google Messages beta protects users from spam text messages .
Google this week started rolling out Verified SMS, a feature aimed at protecting users from spam and phishing attempts, to the Messages application. The latest beta version of Google Messages, the company's dedicated text messaging app, now includes a feature that will verify whether received messages were sent by an authentic business or not. This tool, called Verified SMS, was covered first by Android Police earlier this year, but at the time, it was unclear what the feature would entail. Now that the feature has been spotted rolling out, the purpose of it has become clear.
