Here is some good news for those who like to travel by air -- Google is introducing a new functionality to its Google Flights search engine that will start to include information and even advance warnings with regards to flight delays. The really cool thing about this new feature is that it does not only retrieve flight schedule information and updates directly from airline companies, it will also take full advantage of machine learning algorithms and historical data in predicting flight delays.
Every year’s end, the world’s most popular search engine publishes its annual Year in Search report, which basically shows which topics and stuff Earthlings most often Google in their waking hours. The most searched term is literally a force of nature in itself, Hurricane Irma, which is considered by many as the strongest Atlantic Ocean storm in a dozen years (specifically, since Hurricane Wilma in 2005).
Just recently this week, Google has rolled out a number of new updates to its mobile app for the iOS mobile operating system. One update takes care of bugs that should make the app more reliable than ever, another update now lets users in-search YouTube video content, while the third one offers a new incognito mode. Basically with this new functionality, iOS mobile users will not have to worry anymore about other people knowing their browsing history on their iOS powered devices.
Google has recently announced that it will be rolling out an update to its mobile search results that once again will boost the search results rankings of web pages that are optimized for mobile browsing or viewing over those pages that are not made mobile friendly. As stated by Google via an official blog post, it is planning to start deploying the update some time in May of this year.
Google recently unveiled Purchases on Google, a new feature that allows consumers to purchase items directly from mobile search ads. Specifically, mobile users will be able to see a BUY button in certain promoted search results on mobile, directing them to a page where they can purchase the item being advertised.
In an increasingly mobile world, it was kind of inevitable. And now Google, the foremost expert on web searches, is confirming it -- searches done on mobile devices are now surpassing those made via personal computers.
