Google is doing a great job showing everyone why slow app rollouts suck

You probably have no location sharing tools from Google right now.

Unless you’ve received the most recent Google Maps update, with all of the fun new integrated location sharing features baked right in, you’re kind of screwed right now. Instead of waiting until the Maps update was totally pushed out to every Android user, Google flipped the switch and killed location sharing on Google+ for just about everyone.

That means you have no Google-based location sharing option  [Read More…]

Now, after 7 months of waiting Google is finally rolling out for Audio calls for its Duo app for users worldwide. The announcement was made by Google’s Head for […]

Google Talk is dead, Hangouts is the new Slack, Project Fi users are screwed and everyone hates Allo

It is impossible to go seven or more days without some messaging news from Google.

Google seems to understand that it needs to pare its messenger story down to a few apps that cover everyone’s needs (so it’s easier for people to ignore them all and use WhatsApp anyway). And, to some extent, that’s what is happening, but everything feels so chaotic and is changing before replacements are ready.

It just feels like Google has gone off  [Read More…]

Everyone is talking about Google’s AI-powered game that guesses what you’re doodling

Can a neural network learn to recognize doodles? Google intends to find out.

Google has always had a vested interest in developing and exposing people to the growing power of machine learning technologies. Their most entertaining way of doing this is through their A.I. experiments, which invite the public to explore machine learning by playing with pictures, music and language.

Their latest experiment, Quick, Draw! lets you play a virtual game of pictionary against a neutral  [Read More…]

Android Central 312: A win for Google, a loss for everyone else

This week, Jerry, Daniel and Andrew dive deeper into the Pixel and Pixel XL, discussing the phones’ best and worst features after two weeks of use. It’s also good and bad news on the earnings front, as Google pulled its most profitable quarter ever while LG and Samsung would rather forget about 2016 altogether.

There’s a big gap between smartphone-based VR and desktop-based VR. The most you’ll pay for great smartphone-based VR is around $ 100, and desktop-based  [Read More…]

Google’s control of Pixel updates isn’t great for everyone

The value of carrier updates is sometimes overlooked.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Updates straight from Google = good. Updates that go through carriers, which have to pass certain quality control and network performance tests and are therefore mired in delays and bugs = bad.

That’s the story that we often tell people, directly or indirectly, and as a straight narrative it’s largely true. But like any narrative in this world, there is  [Read More…]
