Google Now adds real-time package tracking, improved settings menu

An update to the Google Search app on Android has added package tracking to Google Now. New cards will show updates to shipped online orders from retailers in real-time, including an estimated arrival date, according to Droid-Life. Individual cards also have an info button, providing quick settings for the card's contents, while the overall settings menu for Google Now has been reorganized with each section having their own toggle options, and a separate "My Stuff" section for quicker alterations to sports teams and stock choices.

Chrome for Android version 26 includes password, Autofill synchronization

A new version of Chrome for Android has been released to Google Play. Version 26 introduces a number of updates, according to the official Chrome Releases blog, including password and Autofill synchronization with desktop counterparts, a fix for instances where a blank page loads instead of the chosen URL, as well as other performance and stability improvements. The proxy-based SPDY speed boost flagged previously does not appear to be included in this release.
