  1. Google has modified the algorithm for issuing the results of its proprietary search engine. Now it will be even easier to get a response to your request — the company has launched a new useful feature that can provide users with the necessary information from the Internet even faster. Usually, when a request is made to Google, a quick response appears at the top of the search results page — a summary of data obtained from the site where the necessary information is published. These blocks are called highlighted descriptions and contain a link to the most popular page related to the search subject. After modifying the search engine, it will automatically highlight the key data corresponding to the query, right on the web page after the click. This allows you to quickly find the information you need without scrolling through the entire material. If the search was performed using Google Assistant, the virtual assistant can read the highlighted description aloud. It usually consists of a text fragment, list, step sequence, or table, contains data about a specific search object, and includes information such as the title of the material and URL links. According to Google, site owners do not need to take any additional actions for the new feature to work. If for some reason the search engine cannot select the desired content or the browser does not support the appropriate options, Google will simply open the page as usual. The updated search engine algorithm was available to some users at the end of May, and will soon be active in all regions.
  2. The Google Lens app is used to recognize objects using the camera and helps you quickly find the necessary information about what your smartphone "sees". With the next update, the Google app has received several useful features that can expand the list of features of Android smartphones. The new version of Lens not only copies the scanned text to the smartphone's clipboard but can also send it to a PC with the latest Chrome browser installed. To do this, both devices must be registered in the same Google account. In addition, users no longer need to open a separate app to find the meaning of a word or phrase. Now, after selecting the text in Google Lens, you can swipe up the Google search tab and immediately get the information you need. The updated version of the app also allows you to listen to any scanned foreign text. With the help of this function, the user can hear the correct pronunciation of unfamiliar words. According to Google, the new features are already available to Android users, and the release date for the iOS version of the app will be announced later.
  3. Google has already released pre-builds of Android 11, but Developer Preview images, according to developers, are not intended for ordinary users. Soon after the announcement of the release date of the new version of the mobile OS, the company published a roadmap with a schedule of releases of more "friendly" beta versions, which all owners of compatible smartphone models can try out. Initially, it was expected that Google will release the final versions of the API for developers and switch to open testing of new user functions in May this year. Later, the situation changed: according to the updated schedule, the place of the long-awaited build was taken by Developer Preview 4, and the first user beta version of Android 11 will appear only in early June. The second and third public builds will be presented in July and August, respectively, and the release of the final version, according to Google, will take place in the third quarter of this year. As the reason for the delay of the public beta, the company points out the need for more thorough testing of the stability of the operating system by developers. The exact date of the official launch of the eleventh version of the "green robot" has not yet been announced.
  4. Google has been testing Android 11 for several months and was supposed to tell all the details about the system at the I/O 2020 developer conference, but the event was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Nevertheless, the search giant still intends to hold a small presentation, publishing an online invitation for everyone. The presentation of Android 11 will be held online on June 3 as part of the Beta Launch Show. During the broadcast, Google employees will talk about the new version of the "green robot". A special aftershow is planned for developers, where the company's experts will answer various questions about the new OS. Questions should be asked in advance via Twitter, specifying the special hashtag #AskAndroid in the message. Along with the presentation, the first build of Android 11 Beta is expected to be released. The final version is scheduled for release in the third quarter of this year. Interestingly, a little earlier, Apple announced the date of its WWDC conference, where iOS 14 will be presented.
  5. When upgrading a smartphone, you have to transfer not only your Google account to a new gadget but also all programs, many of which often require two-step authorization after reinstalling. To speed up the "move", Google has released the first major update of the company's Authenticator app in three years, reducing the entire tedious process to a few seconds. In the new version of Google Authenticator, you can transfer accounts from one device to another using a QR code that must be scanned using the camera of the new device. This will significantly reduce the verification time compared to the standard code request and its subsequent manual input. In addition, the application received an interface that meets the concept of Material Design 2.0, as well as a dark color scheme of the design. The new version of Google Authenticator will be distributed in waves and is already available in Google Play for some regions.
  6. It's no secret that Google collects huge amounts of data about its users. This is not only information about their movements, requests made by the voice assistant, and the contents of emails, but also a lot more. Although Google may use this information for advertising purposes, it still does not cause any harm to users. That's why I always agree with any surveillance that Google requests. However, there are those who are against it, especially when they find out that the search giant can also track the Wi-Fi networks they use. Did you know that Google is following you over Wi-Fi? Google's tracking of Wi-Fi networks is far from new. It is conducted through devices that connect to them. Smartphones, tablets, and other gadgets running Android collect this information and send it to the search giant's database. This is necessary to determine the user's location if the GPS signal is not available, but it is already used for a variety of purposes – from determining the time zone to ensuring the operation of applications that directly depend on navigation systems and geolocation services. How Google is following me Your Wi-Fi belongs not only to you, but also to Google Nothing seems like that. But this way Google can make conclusions about where you work, where you live, and where you just periodically visit. All you need to do is analyze the connection time. If a user's device is connected to the same Wi-Fi network from 9:00 to 17:00, this is most likely their place of work. And if it connects to another access point from 18: 00 to 08: 00 the next day, it is obvious that it is a home. Based on this information, Google can advertise specific products and services. However, if you consider this type of spying unacceptable, you can always prevent Google from tracking your device over Wi-Fi. Another thing is that you can only do this with the access point that belongs to you personally. But with public services, you can't do this, if only because you need to make some changes to the connection name so that your smartphone simply ignores it and does not send the data received from it to Google. How to change the Wi-Fi name Connect the router to your computer via the Ethernet connector (many modern laptops do not have this connector, so you will need to use an adapter); Run the command prompt on Mac, Linux, or Windows (via the start menu) and enter ipconfig (for Window) or ifconfig for Mac and Linux to get the default gateway; Enter the gateway in the browser address bar in the format 192.168.0.1 and wait for the wireless access point control panel to open; Preventing Google from following you is easier than you think Open the section with the name of your access point SSID and add “_nomap” to the existing name without quotes; In other words, if your network is called 123456, then you should get 123456_nomap - save the changes and close the control panel; To check whether the new network name has been sent to Google, launch Google Maps on your smartphone and click on the "My location" icon. Despite the fact that Google carefully encourages operators to perceive the “_nomap” label as a user's refusal to transmit information to the server, the company cannot oblige its partners to do so. Therefore, there is no guarantee that changing the name of a wireless access point will prevent data about your Wi-Fi network and your location from being transmitted to remote servers when you connect to it. However, if you are concerned about your privacy, it is better to change the name of the network and check what will happen.
  7. Samsung is one of the few manufacturers of processors for smartphones. The company even enlisted the support of AMD, together with which it is creating graphics accelerators based on the RDNA architecture for mobile devices. Now it has become known that the South Korean giant is developing a custom chipset together with Google. According to sources from Korea, this year Samsung and Google will release a joint mobile chipset made by the 5-nm process. From the search giant, it will get an image processing processor (ISP) and a neural unit (NPU). This will be an eight-core solution with four energy-efficient Cortex-A55 cores, two Cortex-A76 cores, and a pair of Cortex-A78 cores. ARM's Mali MP20 video accelerator, which was built on the new Borr microarchitecture, will be responsible for the graphics. Probably, the chipset will appear in the new Pixel smartphones from Google. Whether it will be available to other manufacturers is unknown. It is worth noting that earlier this year, Samsung created a new Custom SoC team inside the division responsible for devices. According to available information, it consists of 30 people whose task is to create custom processors. They may be working on a chip for Google.
  8. One of the problems of Android users remains the inability to install fresh firmware versions with insufficient free memory. Another change to the update distribution policy published by Google has warned smartphone manufacturers to support the seamless update feature that fixes the situation. "Violators" may be left without new versions of the operating system or the company's services. Manufacturers will have to take care of supporting A/B virtual partition structure that allows seamless updates. This way users can get updates in "silent" mode while continuing to use the device while downloading patches and installing them. To apply updates, you only need to restart the gadget once after installing all the necessary files. Using this algorithm also allows you to avoid problems and failures in the device after downloading the next patch — all changes first occur in the backup area, and not in the current system. Previously, the use of such a structure was only advisory in nature. But judging by the changes in the VTS policy, with the release of Android 11 and later versions of the mobile OS, the transition to "two-system mode" will become mandatory for all vendors who plan to support Google services and apps on their devices. The seamless update feature is already implemented by many brands, including OnePlus, LG, HTC, Motorola, Google, ASUS, and Sony. The release date for the final version of Android 11 has not yet been announced by developers.
  9. At the end of last year, Google switched to a batch upgrade of the Android OS for Pixel smartphones. The new version of the update called Pixel Feature Drop brought owners of branded gadgets more than a dozen useful features that Google has clearly demonstrated in the form of a video. The list of innovations available to users of “pixels” includes: Cards & Passes. The function allows you to quickly access bank cards, tickets, boarding passes or other cards from Google Pay with one long press. Pixel 4 owners will also have quick access to emergency contacts and medical information stored in the Personal Safety app. Later, such features will appear in Android 11 and for other devices. Adding a boarding pass screenshot to Google Pay. With one click, a boarding pass with a barcode can be added to the appropriate service for future use. Google Pay will automatically update flight information, and on the day of departure, the ticket can be displayed on the screen by long-pressing the power button in the Cards & Passes application. Access to the function will be given to owners of Pixel 3, Pixel 3a and Pixel 4 in all countries where Google Pay is supported. Pause playback using Motion Sense using a gesture without touching the display. Schedule for turning on the dark interface in accordance with the day and night cycles (manual switching time cannot yet be set). Rules for calls and notifications - the smartphone will automatically switch to the “do not disturb”, “silent” or “only vibration” modes according to the schedule, when connected to a dedicated Wi-Fi network or when the user’s location is changed. Emojis 12.1 - 169 new emojis for all occasions. Duo AR Effects. During a video call, you can demonstrate moving elements of augmented reality that respond to the user's facial expressions. The feature is not available to owners of Pixel 2 and Pixel 3a due to the high resource consumption. Improved selfies. In Pixel 4, it will be possible to activate a function that allows you to take "volumetric" pictures on a single smartphone selfie camera. Accident Identification. The Personal Safety application will automatically register the fact of a smartphone user getting into an accident and alert emergency services. In addition to the United States, the feature will be available in Australia and the UK. Officially, only Pixel 4 owners will receive it, but the Personal Safety APK file from Android 11 Developer Preview can also be downloaded to other models in the line. Live caption allows you to convert real-time audio recordings played on your smartphone into text. The function is already available for most Pixel smartphones, but with the March update, it will be received by all users of Google gadgets in this series. So far, only English is supported - in addition, the function is not available for recognizing words in music, during a telephone conversation or VoIP conversation. Improved recognition of long presses. According to Google, now a strong long press on the screen will allow you to quickly "get help from applications" Adaptive brightness setting. The image brightness will automatically increase in bright ambient light. Distribution of the update will be made in waves - owners of Pixel smartphones will be able to download it in the coming days, depending on the region of use.
  10. For the first time in the last four years, new languages have been added to the Google Translate service, according to a press release from Google. From now on, Tatar, Turkmen, Uyghur, Rwanda, and Oriya (Odia, an Indo-European language, which is spoken in the Indian state of Orissa) became available to users of the translation service. “Google Translator now supports 108 languages,” the press release said. “In each of the five languages added, using Google Translate, you can translate both texts and websites. A virtual keyboard is also available for Tatar, Uigur, and Rwanda,” the company said. They also added that while the quality of translation into new languages is imperfect, "however, we hope that despite this, our service will help millions of people." The press release also says that users who speak one of the recently added languages can join the Google Translate community (a community of enthusiasts who improve the service) to help improve the quality of machine translation. The company explained that they are training Google Translate "on existing translations on the Internet." "But there is not much online content in some languages, so it’s harder to add to the system," a Google statement said. Google Translate is an online service and translator application for mobile devices. The service is also integrated into the Google Chrome browser and allows you to quickly translate an open web page.
  11. Google Play store censors are quite loyal to ads placed inside apps, but only if their display does not violate generally accepted rules. During the next sweep of virtual counters, Google specialists removed about 600 applications that were too aggressive in advertising. To detect such applications, Google used a special algorithm based on neural networks. It is able to detect destructive ads that click on links in which either fraudulently, or in the case of displaying banners on top of the home screen, even when the program is closed. Among the points that are considered a gross violation of the policy of fair advertising in applications, Google notes the following: the user must know what specific software displays ads; ads that overlap the system windows of the Android OS; announcements, the context of which will re-read the program topics (for example, if a banner related to the dating service appears in a child’s game). Google has even set up a special censorship group to track such applications. Having found violators, the company's specialists immediately delete the program or game from the store.
  12. Google, which is part of the Alphabet holding company, has published a financial report for the fourth quarter of 2019. One of the most interesting points in the document was the profit from YouTube video hosting. In particular, Google told the revenue generated from advertising. For 14 years, during which the YouTube service is owned by Google, the company has never published data that reveals the site's revenues. According to a published report, last year, advertising on YouTube brought the company $15 billion - an amount that is 10% of Google's total revenue. At the same time, over the past three months, advertising has brought the service $5 billion. Thus, Google's revenue from YouTube is about 20% of Facebook's revenue level and six times higher than Twitch's financial results. According to the company, about 20 million users have chosen a premium subscription that allows you to view videos without ads. Another two million preferred the paid TV service YouTube. Google earned $5.3 billion in sales of smart speakers and Pixel smartphones in three months. At the same time, Alphabet's total revenue for this period was $46 billion, which is 17% more than in 2018.
  13. Every year, the first day of April is accompanied by jokes and pranks, to participate in which it-corporations are not averse. This year, OnePlus retrained into an electric car manufacturer, Google created an application to clean the screen of the smartphone from dirt, and NVIDIA came up with its own voice assistant. We collected the most unusual announcements on April 1. OnePlus Warp Car The company OnePlus is known as a manufacturer of inexpensive flagship smartphones, but this does not prevent it from starting to produce its own electric cars. The company was going to use 3D printing technology to allow drivers to add new features to the car and replace worn parts. To the announcement of the new product OnePlus published a special statement: Restroom on call from Ola Indian taxi service Ola presented a new service Ola Restrooms — call toilet on wheels. By analogy with a taxi, in the mobile application of the company you can order a specially equipped van-restroom. "Snake" in the cards, talking Tulip and cleaning the screen from dirt in Google services In traffic or during a long trip Google offers to pass the time in the famous game "Snake", where you need to collect passengers by train. You can have fun in the browser or mobile application by selecting a special section in the side menu. Google also introduced a useful update of the proprietary application "Files". It includes the function of cleaning the smartphone screen from any dirt and fingerprints. For this purpose, micro-vibrations are used, allowing to remove all unnecessary from the display. In addition, upon completion of cleaning, the application generates a thin magnetic field around the smartphone, which protects it from dirt and emits a sweet smell. Another unusual development of the search giant was the Tulip project. His idea is to be able to translate the language of tulips into dozens of human languages. It is enough to plant a flower in a special pot and connect it to the smart column Google Home. After that, you can communicate with the Tulip. Google Gbroad keyboard supports several ways to enter text, but in the Japanese division of the company has developed another. The company's engineers offer to print the text using a special flexible spoon. Depending on the flexure force, the desired letter is printed. Nokia 9 PureView with X-Ray Vision Representatives of Nokia finally revealed the purpose of the mysterious element on the back of the flagship smartphone Nokia 9 PureView. It turned out to be a sensor for x-rays. To use it you need to download a special application. Marble selfie-smartphone by HONOR The HONOR brand announced a smartphone with a 68-megapixel front camera, an 8,000 mAh battery, six speakers and a marble case. TV remote for four-legged Roku American media player manufacturer Roku took care of our smaller friends and introduced a remote control for dogs. It has two buttons with quick access to the channels about animals so that during the absence of the owners' Pets do not get bored. Competitor Google Assistant and Siri from NVIDIA NVIDIA has long been engaged in developments in the field of machine learning, neural networks, and artificial intelligence, so the release of its own voice assistant has become a highly anticipated event. Virtual assistant GeForce RTX R. O. N "lives" inside a small smart speaker with a holographic interface. Among its unique features — the optimization of game settings, writing posts on forums instead of the owner and the transformation of angry cries of the gamer in an encouraging comment for the party members. PlayStation Key Rings In honor of the 25th anniversary of PlayStation, Sony presented a limited line of trinkets in the form of different generations of consoles, made in the scale of 1:1. They can be hung on your keys, phone or backpack. Real notifications from Duolingo The developers of the popular application for learning Duolingo languages are sure that regular exercises are necessary for effective learning. To do this, the users constantly get reminders and notifications about the need to pass a lesson. But many people simply ignore the push. Therefore, the application was introduced a new premium feature — Duolingo Push. Its essence lies in the fact that instead of the usual notifications in the user's smartphone begins to pursue a giant green owl.
  14. Google is known not only for its search engine: in the arsenal of the software giant, there are many proprietary applications. The analytics company Sensor Tower published statistics on the popularity of mobile application in 2019 - and for the first time in several years, Google turned out to be the most popular publisher - although not without some nuances. In the last quarter of 2019, the company Google overtook Facebook in terms of the number of downloads of its application - for the first time in five years. According to analysts from Sensor Tower, during the reporting period, users downloaded the company's applications about 850 million times against 800 million downloads from the competitor. At the same time, in the context of the past year, Google nevertheless ranks second - about 2.3 billion downloads versus 3 billion. It is worth noting that Facebook owns four of the five most popular mobile applications in the world: WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger. The absolute leader in the number of downloads was the WhatsApp messenger, the number of downloads of which increased by 39% compared to the same period in 2018. TikTok short video publishing service took second place in the overall ranking. In the fourth quarter, its popularity peaked in its entire history - the application has been downloaded about 220 million times. Sensor Tower Company clarifies that TikTok's profit in the 4th quarter grew by 540% compared with the same period the year before last. At the same time, analysts also noted the growing popularity of the Disney + streaming service in the US - almost at the very start, the app was downloaded more than 30 million times. The most popular mobile game in the last quarter of 2019 was Call of Duty: Mobile, followed by Sand Balls. The top 10 also included PUBG Mobile and the Mario Kart Tour.
  15. In order to improve the security of users, Google is constantly working to improve the algorithms of the Android operating system. One of the ways to combat the leak of user data is to encrypt traffic that arrives on or leaves the smartphone. The company announced a new version of the “transport layer” security protocol TLS 1.3 and demonstrated how the security of Android devices has grown compared to last year. The company Google said that as of the end of 2019, at least 80% of Android applications encrypt all traffic by default. This figure applies to absolutely all smartphones running various versions of the mobile OS. If we take into account only versions of Android 9 and Android 10, then the proportion of applications using encryption will be 90%. To demonstrate the dynamics of the use of traffic encryption in applications, Google provided a graph. If at the beginning of 2018, applications did not encrypt transmitted text at all when sending and receiving from a smartphone, now only one out of ten applications does not. Google noted that it added a warning to the Android Studio development environment that reminds the programmer that refusing encryption makes the application less secure. Activation of encryption allows you to make the interception of information sent by hackers useless because it will be impossible to find out about the contents of the information block without a key stored on the smartphone.
  16. Summing up the year, Google has published its own ranking of the best apps, games, TV shows and movies that users remember. The list included an impressive number of nominees, but as usual, only the most popular regulars of Google Play and other services of the search giant were recognized. Google representatives noted that all the applications, games and movies included in the rating managed to surprise the company. To determine the winners, Google conducted a two-week vote, which took place from November 11 to November 25. App of the Year: Spotify: Listen to new music, podcasts, and songs Game of the Year: Call of Duty: Mobile Movie of the Year: Marvel Studios' Avengers: Endgame Book of the Year: Everything Is F*cked: A Book About Hope The company also highlighted the Ablo application - a service that allows you to make new friends around the world. The developers also noted the application "Habits", thanks to which users can develop good permanent habits, such as daily charging, meditation, and consumption of sufficient water. View the full list of nominees on the official website of the event.
  17. The Android mobile operating system uses a special version of the Linux kernel, which has undergone a number of changes from smartphone hardware manufacturers. But soon the situation may change: according to representatives of Google, the company plans to minimize the difference between Linux and Android, making the popular OS even more versatile. At the Linux Plumbers conference, Google developers said that the company is interested in bringing Android as close as possible to the Linux kernel. This will allow you to solve a number of technical problems, abandoning the thousands of software changes in each new firmware. In addition, the company will be able to withdraw support for fixed versions of the Linux kernel for six years, as it is now implemented. The transition to the ARM Linux kernel, according to the developers, will be advantageous for the average user, as it will have a positive impact on the performance and autonomy of devices. Google is now working to integrate as many Android modifications as possible into the main Linux kernel. As of February 2018, the Android kernel had about 32,000 additions and 1.5 thousand deleted fragments compared to the original Linux 4.14.0. During the conference, the Xiaomi Pocophone smartphone, running Android 10, built on the basis of the main Linux kernel, was demonstrated. Google’s idea is to create a universal interface that allows you to activate the hardware elements of the device in the form of plug-ins with the installation of the necessary drivers. At the same time, changes to the OS kernel itself are not required. The Corporation has not yet announced the timing of the project to switch to the "desktop" core of the operating system.
  18. Google announced its intention to expand the range of financial instruments for users of its services. In addition to the Google Pay payment system, the search giant will soon launch the function of opening bank accounts within the framework of the corporate ecosystem. According to The Wall Street Journal, Citigroup and the Stanford University Credit Union will participate in a project called Cache with Google. The company itself will not open special banking units and act as an intermediary between the bank and the user. “Our approach is that we will work closely with banks and the financial system. Maybe this is a somewhat longer way, but also more sustainable, ”Caesar Sengupta, head of Google’s payment services, told reporters. Similar projects are being implemented by other US technology corporations. So, Apple issues its own cards in conjunction with Goldman Sachs, Amazon is negotiating with JP Morgan, and Facebook is betting on its own cryptocurrency. It is expected that the service will be presented at the beginning of next year. Terms of opening accounts and regional availability of Google Cache have not yet been announced.
  19. Application development for Android due to the fragmentation of the system and a large number of various devices is not an easy task. In particular, programmers constantly have to use the Android Debug Bridge (ADB) command line, which is extremely difficult and inconvenient. Google decided to significantly simplify the life of developers and enthusiasts. With the ability to generate logs, work with APK files and enter the shell, ADB gives professionals great control when testing and debugging applications through a PC. Although it is possible to use a wireless connection to the device via TCP/IP, many developers are not aware of this using a wired connection. In addition, data transmission over a wireless connection is in the form of text, which is not secure. As it became known, Google is working on an improved implementation of ADB. Sources claim that it will use a secure wireless connection over Wi-Fi by default. There is no exact information about the implementation of data encryption in this case, but apparently, this feature is under development. A new "wireless debugging" switch will reportedly appear in developer preferences in future versions of Android. Synchronization between the mobile device and the PC will occur by scanning a QR code or entering a six-digit code. It is expected that the new version of ADB will appear in Android 11 OS, the official presentation of which will take place at I/O 2020 next spring.
  20. Gaming smartphones have already become a separate category of gadgets - but it seems that soon they will have to prove their right to be called gaming devices. A document appeared on the network according to which Google will make certification mandatory for this category of Android devices. The first documented mention of the new Google program was found in the leak of the Google Mobile Services (GMS) document version 7.0. One of its sections describes in detail additional certification requirements for Android gaming devices. In particular, such gadgets must pass the latest tests for compliance with the requirements of OpenGL ES and Vulkan. In addition, the smartphone should be able to allocate at least 2.3 GB of RAM for gaming tasks, which after starting other applications will not be used for the needs of the system and background processes. Mention is also made of the need to provide game application developers with access to all processor cores to avoid loss of performance when launching "heavy" applications. The specified certification program has not yet been announced by Google, but, according to insiders, preparations for the publication of a new edition of GMS are already underway. The date of the appearance of the first certified gaming smartphones is unknown.
  21. The world-famous search service began its work in September 1998 after two years of work in the status of a research project. Today, the search giant is celebrating its 21st birthday - in honor of the event, an anniversary “postcard” has already appeared on the search engine’s main page. With the release of the new doodle, Google decided to recall what a typical computer looked like in those years when the founders of the company published an article with the complex title “Anatomy of a large-scale hypertext search engine on the Internet”. Then they described a prototype base, which should contain at least 24 million pages. “We chose the name Google, because it was in tune with the spelling of the googol number, and looked like a combination of numbers 10100. This name corresponded to our plans for creating large-scale search engines,” said Sergey Brin and Larry Page. Today, the Google search base processes billions of queries per day, and from a simple search engine, the company has grown into an influential corporation led by the parent company Alphabet, which is related to a number of industries - from mobile applications to car-to-car driving systems. Interestingly, periodically Google celebrates birthdays on different days. In 2018, a festive doodle was published on September 26, in 2004 a significant date fell on September 7, and a year earlier, on September 8. It is believed that this is due to various key events that occurred with the company in the first year of its existence.
  22. Just a few months before the presentation of the new Google smartphones, almost everything was known about the news. A review of the Pixel 4 XL has already appeared on the network, the gadget has been tested in Geekbench and almost everything is known about the new product. Finally, Google has officially announced the date of the presentation of new devices. Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will be shown on October 15 in New York. At the Made by Google event, the company will also introduce an update to its other product lines. The event’s tagline remains the same: “Look at a few new things Google has done.” The live broadcast of the presentation will be broadcast on YouTube. Of the interesting features of the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL smartphones, gesture control is worth noting - the result of four years of work on the Soli "radar", whose work has already been demonstrated to insiders. New items will also receive advanced cameras with proprietary software, displays with a refresh rate of 90 Hz, and the appearance of a smartphone version with 8 GB of RAM is also possible. Other expected announcements include the Nest Mini smart speaker and the new Pixelbook, codenamed Atlas.
  23. Despite the expectations of users, Google has introduced a smartwatch, Pixel Watch along with the third revision of the corporate smartphone. But although the company has not announced the release of the gadget, the network has already received information about the development, which in the future will be able to compete with the solutions of other manufacturers of wearable electronics. Dutch portal LetsGoDigital published patent documentation, which describes the model of Google smartwatches codenamed Camera Watch. They are notable for their unusual design: the device received a camera built-in or embedded directly into the display. In the future, it will give users the opportunity to shoot or communicate via video communication without taking the smartphone out of pocket. Although the document does not directly indicate the absence of a bezel, the watch will presumably receive a touch ring around the perimeter of the display as the primary control. This is hinted at by the absence of visible physical buttons on patent images. Technical characteristics of the gadget are not disclosed in the accompanying documentation. The patent was filed in the spring of this year, but Google has not yet announced the release of smartwatches. The estimated release date and price of the mysterious new items are unknown.
  24. Google is testing a new feature in the company's search service that makes it easier to find the right information on the Internet. It allows you to quickly find the answer to a search engine question in a large article. However, the innovation is not available to everyone. When searching for information through Google, some users noticed that when you open sites from the issue page are moved immediately to the right place with the answer in the article and the latter is further highlighted in yellow. The presented examples show that when you request the difference between 4K and 1440p in the open site immediately highlighted a piece of text that describes the difference between the two resolutions. It should be noted that this feature works on mobile devices when opening some AMP-pages since 2018. However, it is now available in the desktop version of the search engine. It works only in Chrome. Google employees said that the new option is currently available to about 5% of users. The timing of the global release is not reported.
  25. In recent years, YouTube has ceased to be the usual "warehouse" of videos. By its capabilities for communication, it largely resembles a social network - but it was precisely one of these “non-core” functions that gained popularity among users that the hosting management unexpectedly decided to disconnect. The function of direct messaging between users of Youtube appeared two years ago. But soon this possibility will disappear - according to the publication in the technical support section of the service, this will happen on September 18th. According to representatives of YouTube, the innovation is connected with the new concept of video hosting: it is proposed to discuss videos on the pages of the videos themselves, and not in private messages. According to numerous comments on the news, many users are not enthusiastic about the new service policy. Some even noted that they found new friends only through communication in a "personal". The YouTube manager who posted the post noted that the ability to share videos will continue to be available for sending links to videos on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, and other sites. Those who wish will have the opportunity to discuss the video outside the comment page, copy the link and send it to the addressee.
