Google Teaches You About Google Apps on Your New Nexus 7


Moments ago, Google uploaded this video to keep the momentum moving along in this line of tutorial videos for new Nexus 7 owners. Since the heart of the Nexus 7 is all about apps, Google goes hands-on with their own portfolio of applications including Gmail, Google Earth, and Google’s Chrome browser. These videos are certainly geared towards the Android newbies, but hey, we all have to start somewhere.

Cheers K!

    That hand in the background is either edited in or that person can still insanely still.

  • That hand is unmovable

    • How does he do the 1-handed phone flip @ 1:03… sorcery.

      • Must be on a pole of something

    I’m holding out for an LTE radio. When you pop it open you’ll notice a slot for one.

    I think this thing has tricks up its sleeve. Why I love Google.

    • Hollow space where red arrows are? Slotted in with all the other radio/antennae?

      • Your arrow making skills are unparalleled

  • The production style of these things is reminding me more of those embarrassing Microsoft clips than cooler Apple videos or even Google’s better stuff.

    When the guy says “grocery store” in the middle, the Nexus 7 suddenly felt less than premium.

    No offense, but today has got to be the slowest day on Droid Life.

      A slow day on Droid Life is better than a busy day on iPod Phone life. 😛

    • If only there was a new device coming out every day of the year! 😉

    Offline maps please. The Nexus 7 has a GPS receiver right?

    • Michael_NM

      Yes it does, and the offline maps work great.

      • nightscout13

        I wasn’t specific, I meant downloadable Google maps, like the entire state of California, the way Google had mentioned a few weeks ago…..Pre-cached maps works, but i want solid 100% data including POI’s.

        • Michael_NM

          Lots of good options for that, but most of them cost some coin. Try Navfree USA for a decent free app.

      I used the offline maps for a 200 mile trip the other day without internet and they worked great. The Nexus 7 is a great little (big) GPS unit

      • nightscout13

        Yes, but that would be maps only, not POI’s
