Google often launch applications that are US only for some reason or the other. Why the Google Photo feature grouping similar faces together is a US only feature I’m not sure, but I assume it’s related to the fact it’s done server side.
Two months ago I wrote a post about the Google Calendar Birthdays and my annoyance with Google pollution og G+ everywhere and their annoyingly bad address books.
3. Google Calender now has a setting to ignore google plus birthdays
.. and this both the web and on android.
Ok, I’m sure my annoyances are not unique to me – but thank you Google for listening for once.
