Google started launching devices with its branding with the first generation of Pixel smartphones. Some praiseworthy devices that the company has launched since then include the Google Home smart speakers and Pixel range of smartphones.

Google suspended the overly ambitious Project ARA in 2016, putting the dream of getting a fully modular smartphone to rest. Since then, we have seen smartphone makers try and recreate modularity and to an extent, they have succeeded too. Motorola launched the Moto Mods in 2016 as a way to attach accessories to improve the functionality of the smartphone. Now fresh patents filed by Google show that they are also working on a similar project to make a smartphone fully modular.
The patent was filed at the World Intellectual Property Organization or WIPO and was published on January 31, 2019. The patent is titled “MODULAR DEVICE AND METHODS THEREFOR”. This [...]

The Google Pixel 3 Lite is the ‘Lite’ variant of the Pixel 3. The smartphone is much cheaper and as a result, packs in a lot of compromises over its predecessor, like a plastic frame and a mid-range processor. What the phone doesn’t compromise upon, is the stellar camera and the constant software updates that are promised with every Pixel device. The phone also has a headphone jack, something that is not available in the more expensive version.GoogleSort Read MoreGoogle Is Planning To Launch Atleast Five Products in 2019

Google has already given us a view into the future, where augmented reality can be integrated into phone cameras. This happened at the Google I/O 2018, where Google showed off a demo with an advanced navigation system. The new nav system could guide users by showing pop-ups regarding nearby shops and businesses.Google Maps: The AR Version

The Pixel series has been known for their stellar camera performance and stock Android. The Pixel series also has been called the iPhone of the Android world because of their simplicity. But last year, when the Apple iPhones were announced with Dual SIM connectivity in certain markets, Google had nothing similar to offer. Looks like this is all going to change as the Pixel 4 is reported to have improved Dual SIM functionality.
The Pixel devices theoretically support Dual-SIM, when the Pixel 2 launched with eSIM in 2017. The phones have an in-built SIM and can take an additional SIM card separately. The problem with that was, that only one SIM could function at the same [...]
Google Glass launched back in 2012 with a lot of promises. The tech that the smart glasses offered was ahead of its time but didn’t connect well with the audience. The Google Glass was a flop in the consumer market. Google then tuned the Glasses into an Enterprise model, where it found decent success. These Glasses were meant for better focus and faster completion of tasks in the workers of Enterprises. Looks like Google is all set to release the next iteration of the Glasses. Named the Google Glass 2 Enterprise Edition, these could make their way to the market soon.

There have been several data breaches over the past few months which have made people anxious about privacy on internet. Google aims to minimize that anxiety by launching an extension called Password Checkup.

The extension can be added to the Chrome browser to track login details every time a sign in occurs. It then searches through approximately 4 billion compromised credentials. The extension will then alert if the credentials have been part [...]
Google is on the roll again. This time, it reportedly took down 29 suspicious Google apps from the Play Store. And the surprising thing was the fact that these applications had already been downloaded over millions of times. Read on to find out more.What Do These Apps Do?
As reported, several apps which are downloaded from the Play Store tend to display objectionable links and content on their screens. The links and clickable content then redirects the users to ‘scam’ websites, where information is misused. Supposedly, these ‘fake’ apps can access remote ad configuration servers for performing their phishing attacks. Previously, Google banned some [...]
Just after a few days of banning Facebook’s notorious internal apps on its iOS, Apple has now blocked Google for the same. The company can no longer run its internal apps on Apple’s platform following a privacy scare. This was reported by TechCrunch and Bloomberg’s Mark Bergen.
The main reason cited behind this decision is Google and Facebook’s use of these apps to monitor users activity. Apple’s move to block Google’s developer certificate comes just a day after Google disabled its Screenwise Meter app following press coverage. Google’s app also relied on Apple’s enterprise program. The program enables the distribution of internal apps within a [...]
