New Version of Android Includes YouTube, Picasa Uploads

The new version of Android, version 1.5, includes the ability to upload multimedia directly from the mobile device. Here's what can be done:

  • YouTube: record and easily upload videos to YouTube
  • Picasa Web Albums: upload photos directly to your Picasa Web Albums
  • Gmail: multiple-thread selection to easily archive, delete, label or mute several threads at once
  • Search by voice: improved speech recognition

Google released the Android 1.5 SDK for developers last week.
