Lawmakers in several regions including in the United States, United Kingdom and Singapore are weighing privacy and data rules that could limit how Google tracks consumers and distributes information. We can expect that to start happening with the 2019 Pixel phones when they launch late this year. In a calculated response to these developments, Google is rolling out "Incognito" mode to maps and YouTube.

Google officially announced the Pixel 3A and the Pixel 3A XL at a Keynote event held yesterday.

Revealed ahead of Google's I/O conference, taking place from today through to Thursday, the phone-based in-car infotainment system will receive the update in the summer - aimed at streamlining the software's functionality.

Liverpool stun Barcelona to make Champions League final
People were in utter disbelief of the goal, as Barcelona continued to struggle against a stubborn Liverpool team. Once again the Catalan giants, who last won the Champions League in 2015, wilted when the stakes were highest.

"Privacy must be equally available to everyone in the world, Google's approach is to make privacy more democratic", Pichai wrote on Tuesday. In between these ground-breaking revelations, the Tech Giant also announced that Android now powers over 2.5 billion devices. We are saying this because Google pixel 3A is just similar to pixel 3 at half the price. As soon as speech is detected, captions will appear, without ever needing Wifi or cell phone data, and without any audio or captions leaving your phone.

Enhanced digital wellbeing and parental control features were also mentioned, including more tools to disable apps users find distracting, and tools to give parents more control over the amount of time children spend looking at screens.

The best part is the integration across apps, meaning you could, for example, use voice to reply to a message, send it, open photos, search, pick a new image and send that over to the person you're messaging. Should you get a phone call during your drive, you'll see it pop up in this bottom dock too, and you can ask Google to answer or reject the call. Focus mode will be the one that will help users to select distracting apps and silence to focus on what they are doing. Allowing users to keep the classic navigation buttons will make Android devices more accessible, by helping people who have trouble swiping, or those who don't want to adapt to the new gestures or haven't had time to yet.
