Advertisement
#1
Google is testing its virtual assistant – Google Now – to add new features to it. According to a report on Android Police, Google Now will get ‘Explore Interests’ feature that will allow users to customise updates they are interested in tracking. The site put out screenshots sent with the new ‘Explore Interests’ tab. Users can choose from a number of categories like Sports, TV, Movies, Musicians, Movies, People and Stocks.

Google Now’s ‘Explore Interest’ tab has a strap which says, “Customize your interests.” The tab further reads, “Get updates on your interests. Pick teams, bands, movies, and more.” After a user clicks on categories they are interested in, the feature displays sub-categories under ‘Popular In Your Area’ section. For example, there’s Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead and more in ‘Popular In Your Area’ TV section. There’s Donald Trump, Hillary Rodham Clinton and Bernie Sanders in People category. Users can simply click on the plus sign besides these sub-categories to track updates.

According to the site, the Google Now update is rolling out slowly for users. We’ll have to wait and watch if it comes to India anytime soon.

Voice-assistants are increasingly becoming popular and have found their way other devices apart from smartphones. The Google Now update comes at a time when companies like Apple, Microsoft and Amazon are working to make their virtual voice-assistants more user-friendly. Apple recently announced that it will bring Siri to Mac. We’ll have to wait and see how it works out for users once it is rolled out commercially. Though Cortana for Windows has been there for a long time now making it easier for users to browse through stuff on their system. Also, Cortana has made its way to Xbox One, which has made searching for features during game play a lot easier.
