The next time you do a search on your phone, you may notice something unusual—the search history drop down has a new look. Well, it's new for some people. It's more compact with search terms in a series of blocks. This appears to be the default for a few users, but everyone can try it with a little keyboard trickery.

The search history appears when tapping on the home screen search widget or the search widget in the Google search UI.

Students are heading back to school. That means phones are leaving the careful confines of home and venturing back out into the world... Okay, I was going to insert a joke about nerds not leaving the house over the summer, but this year, this happened, so I'm just going to move on.

googleplus-new-website-hero

Back in November last year, Google rolled out a new-look Google+ and deemed it a 'preview' of what was to come. It was generally assumed that at some point this would replace what has become known as 'Google+ Classic,' and that day has now arrived, with the announcement that the Web preview will be the default look from today onwards.

This isn't entirely a surprise: last week Google issued a reminder saying that today was the day, so we were prepared for this eventuality.

pixel

The Chromebook Pixel 2015 (or the Pixel 2, as it is more commonly known), is just as interesting a device as its predecessor. It offers a fantastic build quality, touchscreen, dual USB Type-C ports, and more recently, the full Google Play Store. The Pixel 2015 was sold in two configurations, the base model for $999 discontinued in April, and another at the $1,299 price point with a faster Core i7 CPU, 64GB of on-board storage, and 16GB of RAM.

googlephotos

Google updated the photos app a few months ago to add proper support for burst photos, and it looks like the web version has now done the same. We're not sure when this happened, but the change seems to have gone mostly unnoticed. So, we're just letting you know.

Photos taken in burst mode and auto-uploaded to Photos will include a tag in the file name that identifies them as part of a burst.

InboxSearchUIHero

Another day, another A/B test has come our way at Android Police. This time, Google is testing out a new Inbox search UI, replacing the dropdown search menu that's been ever-present since Inbox launched.

The UI shows three categories: contacts, businesses, and refinements. Contacts and businesses show people or companies that you regularly contact, while refinements highlights other options you may be likely to search for, such as 'sent emails from last week,' or 'attachments.' These are side-scrolling, with what looks like six options in each row, although it could be more.

If you're getting started with a smart home setup or working on an upgrade, your wallet is probably feeling pretty light. While you're still on your own for all the connected devices, Amazon has the best price we've seen on Samsung's SmartThings Hub at $79, $20 below the typical going rate.

The hub sets up by simply running the included ethernet cable to your router. You can manage your devices via the free SmartThings Hub app.

xa ultra

If you're in the market for a phablet with an amazing selfie cam (God, I hate myself for using those terms), you'd better check out the Sony Xperia XA Ultra. The 16MP camera up front has a higher resolution than most smartphone rear-facing cameras do. Now, you can pick one up on Amazon for under $300 with a free 64GB Sony microSD card.

The XA Ultra (which I'll be referring to as the Ultra from now on) is a very strange Xperia.

Casting to QBR Hangouts

Google has been testing Cast support in Hangouts for over a year, with the most recent sighting back in July. The feature never rolled out widely or was officially acknowledged by Google, until now. Casting directly to Hangouts is coming to everyone soon thanks to full Google Cast integration with Chrome on the desktop.

You no longer need to have an extension installed to Cast content in Chrome, but you can still have the Cast shortcut installed.
