Weekly Update - March 4, 2017: YouTube TV, Keep, Google+

This week’s big news is YouTube TV. It will offer live television on all the major networks, regional sports and many other cable network channels. Put that together with unlimited cloud DVR and availability on all your devices, and it sounds like a winner. US only though.

My top updates this week:
  • YouTube TV: live TV wherever you are, plus cloud DVR with no storage limits (US only)
  • Google Keep integration with Google Docs 
  • G+ Android version 9.6.0: Support for GBoard Animated GIFs
  • Hangouts update: Jump right back into the conversation with redesigned unread messages indicators
Plus updates and tips for YouTube, Blogger, AdSense, Google+, Photos and more.
