Will generative AI chatbots really replace Google?

Despite being synonymous with searching (and the most visited website in the world), complaining about Google Search has become increasingly common. The gripes generally centre around both the plague of sponsored links, and the fact the top result is rarely the most credible source. SEMrush found last year, for example, that almost 30% of people are having to redo their Google searches, either by refining or extending queries. (This is without […]

Google has developed a music-making AI bot

As AI slowly creeps it way into every facet of our digital lives — from essay writing to conversations with therapists to the generation of original art — it's the least bit surprising that artificial intelligence would also take a step into music. It's also not surprising that tech giant Google would be the first major player on the scene. The company is reportedly building an AI bot that can create "original" music(Opens in a […]

With new Pixels, Google’s going it alone

At an event where Google launched two new Pixel phones, showcased a Pixel smartwatch, and teased a Pixel tablet for next year, one element was conspicuously absent. Throughout the event, there was no obligatory nod in the direction of Google’s other hardware partners—the Samsungs, Motorolas, and OnePluses that largely keep the Android ecosystem humming along. Their names never came up, and a large chunk of Google’s presentation covered features that will […]

Android Uses Drake’s “Texts Go Green” to Keep Pitching RCS to Apple

To start the weekend, Drake released a new album titled “Honestly, Nevermind,” a super vibey summer dance album that is unlike almost anything the rapper has released. Whether the singsongy form of Drake is your favorite or not, at least one of the songs helped spark an Android moment.

Google Assistant Driving Mode Gets Sweet New Home Screen

Google first showed off the Google Assistant Driving Mode back at Google I/O in 2019, promising that it would arrive later on in that summer. It’s now the end of summer 2021 and that same Driving Mode, at least in the way it was first revealed, is now here. 2 years later…whatever. The new Google Assistant Driving Mode is more of a stand-alone experience than the one we first received last November, […]

Google remembers android tablets exist, adds a new media hub

A surge in interest for large-screen slates has prompted the company to inject an “Entertainment Space” into the user interface. Last summer Google introduced a content hub for select Android tablets called Kids Space to help children and their parents find age-appropriate books, games, and videos. Now the company is doing the same thing for adults.  In what's possibly the biggest change to the Android tablet experience since 2011, Google's new Entertainment Space is […]
