Google debuts privacy controls, principles at I/O event

Google debuts privacy controls, principles at I/O event

One of the best things about using an Android powered smartphone is the fact that you will always be the first one to access Google's latest software updates.

At Google I/O 2019, apart from making announcements regarding Android Q, the Mountain View-based tech giant has also announced what we could call as "budget Pixel devices".

Google has said that users will be able to manage their Personal References and delete them at any time, or simply not use the feature if they have data privacy concerns.

Google says that its intelligence assistant will get a collection of updates including one that lets movie tickets and it book rental cars to you.

With revenue growth slowing and costs largely growing, Alphabet has faced questions from investors about the threat of new rules and its ability to commercialize newer services such as the Google Assistant.

Connectivity options in the device include a single SIM slot with 4G VoLTE capabilities, although you also have the option of an eSIM which is supported only by Airtel and Jio in India.

Facebook Bans Alex Jones, Louis Farrakhan & Milo Yiannopoulos For "Dangerous" Activity
Trump attacked Twitter and other social media accounts for teaming up with the Democrat party to censor conservatives. Trump's retweets included a range of commentary blasting Facebook's ban as politically-motivated censorship.

The new releases will still keep the most lived features like the Google assistant which will allow users to text, get directions, set reminders and much more through a simple voice command. If you don't want to take my word for it; try all two of them out for yourself.

Google is a big brand, a company that has the power to change the world just like Facebook and Microsoft, and Apple!

The new Maps Incognito mode comes later this year. You can tap on any of these apps to change them from "allowed" status to "denied", or vice versa.

Duplex on the web is coming later this year in English for the USA and United Kingdom on Android phones with Assistant. Unlike the Do Not Disturb mode that is nearly system-wide, this mode will let you choose which apps you want to pause for a certain period of time to help you focus on what needs to be done.

Speaking with Variety, Google seemingly confirmed that the Android TV won't be seeing the Q update anytime soon.

The Pixel 3a is equipped with a 3,000 mAh battery, while the Pixel 3a XL has a 3,700 mAh battery, according to Google.
