In their pursuit of connecting the “next billion”, Google’s focusing more heavily on entry-level devices. And when I say entry-level I’m talking about super-entry level devices. That’s where Android Oreo (Go edition) comes in. It’s a version of Google’s operating system that’s designed to run on cheap Android smartphones.
For many, YouTube has become the source of video entertainment because of how convenient it is to use on-the-go and the wealth of content that gets uploaded to it. However, watching those videos require a lot of data. If you’re someone who’s broke af and can only afford the most basic mobile data plans, your YouTube watching ability becomes severely limited.
This is where YouTube Go comes in with the goal of alleviating some of these data consumption concerns.
Isn’t it really annoying when you’re on your smartphone in a public space and out of the corner of your eye (or when your spidey senses start tingling) you notice someone looking at your smartphone’s screen. You make eye contact with them and they immediately avert their gaze in guilt.
How long have they been looking? What have they seen? Did they manage to take a look at that awful selfie you took yesterday before you deleted it from your gallery? Suddenly, you’re super self-conscious.
The good news is that that may not be a problem for much longer because a group of Google researchers have found the solution.
I mean, that’s what Google does best right? They take mundane things, dress them up, give users a slick new interface and suddenly everyone’s using it. Well, except social media and chat apps, they just cant seem to get those right (RIP Google Plus and Allo + Duo).
This time, they’re tackling a topic that plagues pretty much all of us: Limited mobile data quota. With their new app Datally, it looks like they want to make it so anyone can easily save data effortlessly. Good guy Google.

I’m really happy Google’s now making hardware because if there was any company with a taste for what good products should look and feel like, it’s everyone’s favourite search engine. One of their latest products is this guy, the Google Home Mini and it’s the cutest smart home device I’ve ever seen.

Waze is awesome (for the most part). It has come to a point where I cannot imagine life without Waze telling where to go and which route is the least congested during peak hours. But, while Waze is awesome for people who drive cars, they’ve always left out our fellow road buddies, the motorcyclist.
Now, that’s about to change.

With Android One, Google is trying to deliver the best stock Android experience at various price points. Now it looks like Google could be introducing a phone that promises the best YouTube experience in the palm of your hands.
Google’s shooting out a whole bunch of great deals for the upcoming Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales and Malaysia’s far from exempt.
That’s right, Google Maps is getting a fresh new UI and icons with an upcoming update that will make it easier for users to navigate.
Seems that Google‘s Pixel 2 phones can’t catch a break, with the latest problem with the smartphone being the cameras behaving rather oddly when presented with LED lights.
