API & Tooling news
Announced: Gmail Add-ons Developer Preview — A new way for developers to bring the power of their app into Gmail with just one tap, across devices.
Launched: Classroom API enhancements to coursework endpoints — These updates add new management capabilities that allow applications to create and update questions, modify and delete coursework, and add Drive items and YouTube videos to coursework and student submissions.
Launched: New Metrics on Hangouts and Changes to Google+ Activity Metrics — The new Hangouts metrics have been added to the Reports API and can now be used to track video calls by platform. In addition, Hangouts, YouTube Comments, and Photos have been unbundled from core Google+ product usage, so you may see a decrease in overall Google+ usage at your domain.
Launched: External Directory Sharing Setting — In September, we added two APIs to the recently launched External Directory Sharing Admin console setting. The sharing setting is already enforced in the Google People API, and we will now also enforce it in Google CardDAV API and Google Contacts API v3.
Launched: App Maker Early Adopter Program — App Maker is G Suite's low-code application development tool that lets you build powerful, custom business apps in days, not months. It's currently available as part of an Early Adopter Program (EAP) to G Suite Business customers. You can apply to join the EAP today here.
Launched: Gmail API: New Endpoints for Settings — The new feature extends the Gmail API with new endpoints for managing settings such as filters, signatures, out of the office settings, and more.
Launched: Cloud Speech API — The new feature, now in beta, enables users to convert audio into text using standard HTTP GET and POST constructs. The API recognizes over 80 languages and variants, supporting a global user base.
Launched: Cloud Natural Language API — The new feature, now in beta, lets users easily reveal the structure and meaning of their text in a variety of languages. It includes sentiment analysis, entity recognition, and syntax analysis.
