      Peter, this is definitely something we want to add in the future and has been on our list for a while. We’d like to add an iOS native lightbox where you can easily pinch to zoom and save or share an image. There might be some technical issues that …

      > Replacing the color background with an image related to the topic might help with that - although potentially at the expense of readability and an increased moderator workload (to choose and keep up-to date the images). We've actually talked …

      The topic card colors are based on the first letter. It is important for topics to be easily scannable in a list. Color coding them based on the letter made the most sense. One of the benefits of this system is that people can instantly see if a …

      Audiophiles would definitely benefit from that much storage. When it comes to lossless audio like FLAC format taking up six times as much storage as MP3 320, having that 1TB would be handy. I used to be avid lossless music aficionado buying CDs …

      Very minimalistic 8GB of storage won't get you very far especially if you want to get iOS updates. 😜 iOS 12 upgrade is 2.77GB and needs even more space to unpack it (conservatively 5GB of free space just to upgrade). I'm also a heavy iCloud Drive …

      It is official: both Samsung S10+ and SanDisk microSD have introduced us to a new norm, where our phones will soon be coming with 1TB of storage built in. This incremental, yet monumental, barrier is broken and the future of 4K 2 hour videos shot …

      I didn't know about the "Drop In" functionality or "Announce" for that matter! Thank you for pointing these out. I'm a bit uneasy about ordering anything directly by using voice, so I'll start with just adding certain things I need to the cart …

      Hi and welcome to Cake, Nora! We have quite a few Google+ people here especially in the photography and reading / writing topics. You may already know some of them. If you follow or browse a Google+ topic you'll see the conversations we already …

      Ravi, as far as I understand from my teammates, who are more technically savvy, we also experience that bug in Chrome on Android and haven't found a good solution for it yet. Maybe they'll chime in during the week with exact details and I'll remind …

      Thank you for suggesting this, Ravi! We've actually considered this interaction (sticky header) multiple times in the past, but we haven't found a good design solution yet. I think the problem we need to solve is: "Make it easy to switch between …

      I finally got an Alexa powered Sonos Beam for the kitchen, where I've been spending a lot of time lately. My hands are tied up while cooking and it is a pain to drop what I'm doing, wipe my hands, and hunt for a skip song button. It is for simple …

      The best way to improve your feed is by following more topics that interest you. That is what is driving conversation suggestions in your feed. > It seemed to be better before. Would love to know more about this! Was it the number of …

      That chart really nails the bane of all companies: meetings. Back in the day when I worked at an office I realized that pretty much all of my work time was consumed by meetings. Just when I parked my butt in front of the computer I would have to …
