Google Maps 7.5 Brings Gmail Integration for Reservations!

As of late, Google’s been pumping out first party Android app updates like nobody’s business. We’ve seen updates to Google BooksGmail, Google Translate, and Androidify. Now, the company is rolling out an update for Google Maps bringing it up to version 7.5 (from 7.4), and it packs many new features such as Gmail integration for various types of reservations.

Similar to the integration that was recently added to Google Search, the Gmail integration in maps is able to query your Gmail for information relevant to certain topics. In the case of Maps, this functionality is used to read into reservations for restaurants, hotels, and airfare. The information is then shown when viewing a place related to your reservations. There is not yet an official changelog, so it is entirely possible that there are other changes that have not yet been discovered.

The update is being delivered in the form of a staged rollout, so your device will likely receive the update in the next few days. However, we’ve gone ahead and mirrored the update with our friends at DevHost. To get in on the action early, download the appropriate APK matching your Android version below:

Once you’ve installed the update, be sure to share your thoughts in the comments below!

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
