    Revamped My Devices page will help users find and manage their devices

    Posted: 18 Nov 2019 12:30 PM PST

    Quick launch summary 

    We’re making some updates to the My Devices page. Users can go to the page to see the devices they’ve used to log in to G Suite and then manage those devices. It includes detailed device information, an option to log out of the device, and an option to wipe the device. You may notice:

    • A new URL, as the page is now found at mydevices.google.com, rather than google.com/apps/mydevices. Soon, we’ll start to redirect users from the old site to the new site. 
    • The page now includes both mobile and desktop devices. The old page only showed mobile devices. 
    • Detailed device information. This is the same as the previous site. 
    • Options to manage device access and wipe the device if desired. This is the same as the previous site.

    Set profile picture for Gmail and all Google apps

    Posted: 21 Oct 2019 01:34 PM PDT

    What’s changing

    We’re combining the Gmail photo with the Google account profile photo for G Suite users. Now, when you go to change this setting in Gmail, you’ll be directed to the “About me” section of your Google profile settings to set your profile picture.

    Who’s impacted

    Admins and end users

    Why you’d use it

    Currently, profile pictures set in Gmail are only displayed in Gmail. This means your profile picture in Gmail may be different than your Google account profile photo, which can make it difficult to know which picture will be displayed where. This change simplifies things by allowing you to set a single profile picture in one place and then displaying that single photo across all Google apps.

    How to get started





    • If your Gmail and profile photos are currently different, and you have permission to edit your photo, you’ll  see a pop-up when you visit your About me settings which will prompt you to select one of the images or choose an entirely new photo. 


    Additional details

    This setting gives Admins who have disabled photo editability in their domain greater control, as users can no longer change their Gmail picture independently of their Google profile picture. 

    Note that users who do not visit their "About me" settings will not be prompted to select a single profile picture and will continue to have different profile pictures.

    Directly click on chart elements to move and delete them in Google Sheets

    Posted: 15 Oct 2019 07:29 AM PDT

    What’s changing 

    We’re adding new features that give users more options to easily customize their charts in Google Sheets. Now you can click directly on data labels, chart titles or legends and drag to reposition them. Or you can easily delete these elements using the delete or backspace keys.

    Deleting chart elements in Google Sheets

    Repositioning chart elements in Google Sheets.

    Who’s impacted 

    End users

    Why you’d use it 

    These features give you more ways to control the look and feel of your charts. For example, you can now easily reposition data labels that overlap to avoid clutter and ensure that key data points stand out. Or you can reposition the legend inside the chart area in order to maximize chart space.

    How to get started 



    Additional details 

    When clicking on a group of items (like a set of data labels), the entire group will be selected first. If you want to drill down further (for example, to select an individual data label), simply click again on the specific element.

    Note that most chart elements can be repositioned and deleted, except those that derive their position from data. So, you can reposition elements like chart titles or legends, but data points will remain fixed.

    Also included in this launch is the ability to navigate through chart elements using your keyboard.

    • Tab: move between elements 
    • Enter: select an individual element from a group 
    • Escape: go back from an individual element to a group 
    • Arrow keys: reposition the selected elements 


    For those who use a screen reader, chart elements will be verbalized as you navigate through them.
