It seems YouTube is making its mobile live streaming feature more and more available to all users by reducing the number of subscribers needed for one to enjoy access to the functionality. But Google is making it clear that it still is not made available to everybody. Officially, YouTube mobile live streaming can only be accessed by a limited number of account holders for now.
Google unveiled some pretty awesomestuff during this year’s I/O developer conference. But perhaps the coolest one is Google Lens, which can be described as a sort of software platform that can basically read text and even identify objects either from an image or through the view of a camera sensor. It then processes whatever it recognizes in real time and of course, tells the user what it has detected.
A few days ago, rumors started circulating that Google was planning to bring its Assistant digital assistant to mobile devices made by tech rival Apple. Well, the company has recently made an official announcement during its annual I/O Developer Conference, stating that Google Assistant is indeed on its way to iOS handsets. But wait -- doesn’t iOS already have Siri?
Well, just to be clear about everything, Android O, the upcoming newest version of Google’s Android mobile operating system, has actually already been made available for several weeks now but as a developer preview, which meant that only app developers can access it. But during Google’s annual I/O conference, the tech giant took the opportunity to announce to the rest of the world that it is now releasing a beta version of Android O.
Some may remember that back in February earlier this year, YouTube had started to allow users to directly live stream to their channel from their mobile devices. That capability, however, had only been made available to people with at least 10,000 subscribers. Well, here is some good news -- the world’s most popular source of video content has since reduced the requirement to just 1,000 subscribers.
Google recently took the opportunity to announce new partnership deals its Android Pay service had struck with a number of banking institutions from across the globe. The deal involves having these partner banks integrate the tech giant’s mobile payment system into their respective mobile apps. The banks include Bank of America, USAA, Bank of New Zealand, and mBank.
Here is some good news for frequent users of Chrome when surfing the information superhighway using their mobile devices -- Google has rolled out a new update to its browser that from now on will make mobile browsing a more smoother and frankly, less maddening experience. Mobile users may have already tried to browse the web using their smartphones and tablet devices and observed how web pages sort of jump while they are in the process of loading.
According to a recent report published by Yonhap News, Google is said to be planning to pour an $880 million investment (at least) in LG Display in order to increase the production of OLED display screens for its Pixel devices. The aim of the move is to find a reliable supplier of panels so that the tech giant can minimize its reliance on Samsung Display.
According to a report recently published by web analytics firm StatCounter, Google’s Android mobile operating system is now the most widely used OS in the information superhighway. StatCounter’s research shows that Android has now captured a bigger share than Windows in terms of web usage, marking the first time ever that Google’s OS had overtaken Microsoft’s offering.
Just this week, Google launched the developer preview of the upcoming new version of its mobile operating system, nicknamed Android O for now. Because this release is still a developer version, only developers and early testers will get to personally enjoy its features for now, but most Android mobile users should be able to experience them soon enough. So what can people expect from Android O?
