Google announced that it’s removing the account owner name from the Google Bar, and Box announced new upcoming descriptions to the Admin Console’s Group Settings.

Removing Account Owner Name From the Google Bar – In the past year, Google has made some changes to the Google bar that is displayed across the top of most Google apps. For instance, if a user has a picture associated with their account, they’ll see that picture in the Google bar; if they don’t have a picture, they’ll see their initial. Because these changes have made it easier for account owners to identify the account they’re currently signed into and using, there’s no longer a need to display their name in the Google bar as well. With that in mind, starting today, account owner names will disappear from the space next to the app launcher in the Google bar in any Google apps where they previously appeared.

Grouplevel Settings Update – In the next couple weeks, Box will add new descriptions to the Admin Console’s Group Settings to better educate admins on their function and value. Admins will see an updated label for each group setting option, and can also hover over each Group setting to see an information bubble with a description. No functionality will change.
