Google Photos archiving rolls out with AI-powered suggestions

  Google Photos archiving rolls out with AI-powered suggestions The new Archive feature recently spotted in Google Photos is now rolling out to all users, but it has an extra trick. While the Archive button lets you push more mundane photos (scans of receipts, screenshots of a random tweet, or maybe particularly personal photograph) out of the main Photos display without deleting it, there's also a new suggestion in the Assistant tab that will use its machine learning skills to find likely candidates for you.

With Gboard ’s built-in GIF and emoji search , you can quickly find an appropriate GIF for the best reaction and find the perfect emoji to express your emotions in chats. Rodney Coleman. And this is why Google runs better on iPhone…

Because now I can search for emoji and GIFs directly from Gboard . And it’s super easy. Basically, if you ’re using the newest version of Google Keyboard—which is now called Gboard —then the emoji keyboard got a bit of a makeover.

  Google Gboard now lets you draw to search emoji because why not © Provided by The Next Web Google’s excellent Gboard for Android is getting a few updates today meant to speed up your conversations a little bit.

Most notably, you can now draw emoji. No, this doesn’t mean you get to turn your scribbles into your own emoji, but Google will recognize what you’re trying to draw and offer up some suggestions. The feature likely builds off of the technology in Google’s AutoDraw app introduced a couple of months ago, which similarly turns your doodles into clean clip art.

Of course, you could already just search for an emoji, but the new feature comes in handy if you’re looking for a particular emoji but don’t know what it’s call. Plus drawing stuff is fun.

Google just fixed an annoying freezing bug with its Pixel phone

  Google just fixed an annoying freezing bug with its Pixel phone Google today released its monthly security update for Pixel and Nexus devices. A post on Google’s product forums confirms that the fix “should address many of the freezing issues that have been reported.” Count me as one of the unlucky ones; my Pixel has been completely locking up at unpredictable times — at least once or twice a day — for months. And it rarely recovers or snaps out of it, so I usually have to hold down the power button for a hard reset whenever the freezes occur. (Yes, the Pixel’s camera is so good that it makes putting up with this stuff worth it.) Not all Pixel devices exhibit the issue.

Meet Gboard , a new app for your iPhone that lets you search and send information, GIFs, emojis and more, right from your keyboard. Now whether you ’re a low key fan or a true culture vulture, Google can help you become an art expert with two new features across Search and Maps.

That said, in a blasphemous move, Google demonstrated the feature using the classic ‘blob’ emoji, knowing all-too-well they’re about to kill them off for a vastly inferior redesign.

Type “What do” and google will suggest “you think,” for instance. I can’t see myself using this feature all that much – I hardly ever autocomplete words, let alone entire phrases – but it might be useful for slower typists, or if you’re using a device with one hand.

No word on when these features are coming to iOS, but you’ll see them in Gboard for Android starting today with version 6.3 of the app.
