  • Google updates search app with several search and browsing features

The vice president of Engineering at Google, Shashi Thakur said that " Now you can see many cards which may include Trending News, Sports, Music, and Celebrities, etc. The mobile app feed also contains things such as boarding passes and calendar events based on things taken from Gmail and Google calendar.

Machine learning, a type of artificial intelligence, requires a lot of data to train algorithms to address individual-level peculiarities and interests. A new "Follow" button will also be appearing on a topic card when you search for it. While it sounds a little bare, Google is trying to capture more of its users' attention and keep them in touch with relevant content, ideally building fresh lifetime value. Google is working to change the way in which people discover information. If you are feeling bored, here is good news for you, Google coming up with the new homepage. Hence it will be useful to the users as they can view only the news which matters to them or in which they are interested. "It is competing with other ways of accessing content". This is quite nice, since it helps you stay away from tons of useless information and be up-to-date only with something that really interests you.

USA to ban citizens from visiting North Korea
On July 16 that deadline came and went, and USA government officials have apparently decided that Beijing was not doing enough. Around 6,000 Westerners visit the reclusive country every year, so USA tourists represent only a sixth of this particular pie.

Hopefully, this gamble of Google will pay off and will also aid in the fight against Fake News, a problem that mostly stems out of Facebook and Twitter. To start introducing feeds would be very odd. At present, the Google made this feed available to the users in the United States only.

It is now available in the U.S. and will be rolled out in other countries soon. First, it will launch the Google US; later it will launch through out the world.

Google is known for its sparse homepage, which, though mostly white space, has, according to analytics firm Alexa Internet, become the world's most-visited website.

The company did not divulge whether it would insert advertisements or sponsored posts into the feed, but Mr Littunen suggested the focus of the service was to make Google more useful and drive users to its other services.
