With Entry Into Interest Curation, Google Goes Head-To-Head With Facebook

Google has taken steps to prevent another massive phishing attack

Users in the USA can enjoy the updated news feed in the Google app on Android and iOS right now. However, change is inevitable, and today, Google has announced that Google Now is now being replaced with "Feed". For now, it will only pop up for new apps, but Google did say that it plans on expanding it to existing apps in the coming months as well. If available, you'll be able to fact check an article and see information from different perspectives.

Google Now has always been the center of the mobile search experience, offering relevant information as well as things you're interested in.

For example, the feed might show the latest weather, followed by stories or videos based on search results.

Google has advanced its machine learning algorithm to provide a more personalized news feed to Google Search mobile app users, according to a Wednesday blog post from vice president of engineering Shashi Thakur. Another way to buy into this symbiotic relationship is by choosing to follow results that pop up when you use the search bar in the "Google" app.

Feed for thought: Google is constantly seeking ways to keep us immersed in its world of search and information, and the personalized feed is a natural extension of that mission. Google expects that Feed could make Google app as popular as Facebook and Twitter. For instance, if a news post is about the healthcare bill, related news from other sources will appear beneath it. Just search your favorite music band, sports team, movie or TV show and click follow.

In the meantime, Abbas is in touch with Arab and global leaders to try to "prevent a deterioration of the situation", it said. The report also said Netanyahu invited Saudi officials to come visit the site themselves but has received no response.

Once you go through the intro, seen in the GIF above-right, you will be asked to activate the app, then allow Google to access your location.

By mentioning "your interactions with Google", the search company hopes to bring all of your actions on various Google properties (Calendar, YouTube, etc.) and bring them into one place. Years ago, Google Senior Product Manager Karen Corby geeked out on "The Glass Castle", a 2005 memoir by Jeannette Walls.

The feed will takeover wherever Now was previously seen, including the Android and iOS Google Search apps, as well as the left-most page on your homescreen for devices like the Google Pixel.

Building off the feed feature launched in December, Google is now giving searchers the option to follow specific topics of interest.

Google previously tightened its developer registration systems shortly after the "Google Docs" incident in order to reduce the chances of a rogue plugin getting through.
