Google has been doing so many things we don’t even know about. We are only aware about those things that are much discussed about Google and those which we use in our daily life.
Have you heard about the Google car?
If some asks this. So many are unaware about it as they are not discussed much. But if you ask people about the version of android Google is going to launch, most of them are aware about it.
So its about what we discuss about in everyday life. Android has been able to reach to most of the people and the competition between mobile OS may also be the reason for Android versions being more care about.
Here we have included some things that Google has been doing and has done this year including the ones we know and we don’t know:
1. Google working on bringing Android to desktop:
Google has been working to make Android Apps compatible with any machine that can run the Chrome browser. The tools name is Arc Welder. It serves as a wrapper for apps designed for smartphones or Tablets, allowing them to run in a desktop environment. It was targeted for chrome OS but not it has extends its compatibility to chrome browser. It is going to very helpful as the payments and integration with maps can be done easily. It will also help the developers. However all the API doesn’t work and they are still in the process of making them completely work. But those that do work are OAuth2, Google Cloud Messaging, Google+ sign-in, ads, and maps/location. The future of chrome has also taken a step upward after this as it was already widely used browser.
2. Google field trip app on your smartphone:
Google’s Niantic Labs has made its Field Trip tourist guide App to also work on Android Wear smart watches. The app use to be in android smartphones and then the I phone and now it is also available for smartwatches. It is not just for tourist but you can do other things also with the App.You can find information on historical places and get some pace to eat, shop and have fun.
3. Google taught chrome to sing A new extension in Google chrome named as “tone” which broadcasts the URL in any tab through your machine’s speakers as a little blast of bleeps and bloops. The idea is to easily allow teams to share documents and links without copying and pasting links in chat boxes. Tool is the first tool to share links and document in this way. It can be very useful for sharing links in podcasts and other medium.
4. Google maybe Planning to kill the Space bar Google may kill the space bar too introduce a new design. The reason is Google got a patent for building keyboards without them. Google was awarded a new patent to remove the physical space bar so that there can be a room for a hybrid track pad. However it still not 100% sure but we might be expecting for this soon enough. As google is innovative with everything they got, they might go for making few other changes as well.
