The technology is being integrated into so many Google products these days, with one of those things being the feed in the Google app. Today, our favorite tech company is improving on this with even more features that will help you get the news that you want out of the Google feed.

Google announces Hire, a new G Suite recruiting app aimed at helping small businesses save on hiring costs

Finding a job can often be difficult, but more and more services have popped up over the years that have helped many (including me) find work. On the other end of the spectrum, it can also be difficult for employers to attract strong talent and fill positions (which boggles my mind, frankly). There are options for those companies to find new employees, but leave it to Google to come riding in to save the day. The company has announced Hire, a solution tightly integrated with G Suite, that is meant to help small and medium businesses save on hiring and interviewing costs.

[It lives!!!] Google Glass emerges from 2-year silence with new Enterprise Edition and wider availability to partners

What's that strange feeling? Almost like I've seen a ghost. Oh, Google Glass isn't dead after all? That'll be it. There have been recent signs that the seemingly abandoned experimental wearable might be making a return in one form or another, more than 2 years after the Glass Explorer Program officially ended. The first was an update to the MyGlass app last month, after lying dormant for nearly 3 years. This was followed the next day by a mysterious firmware update making its way to any Glass Explorer Edition units still in use. Google has confirmed that was regular maintenance to the consumer device, and not related to this fresh news about the Glass Enterprise Edition that Alphabet's experimental X subsidiary (formerly Google[x]) has been busy working on for the last two years.

Google Docs now supports Smart Text Selection in Android O [APK Download]

There were a number of small but interesting features of Android O (Oreo? Octopus??) that popped up at Google I/O back in May, and one of those was Smart Text Selection. I'm sure we've all been frustrated when trying to select text on our phones, and this feature intends to fix that by highlighting exactly what we need with a simple double tap. Now, Google Docs is implementing this feature and it should work for anybody currently running the Android O Beta.

Dein Persönlicher Assistent: Google Home coming next month to Germany

Hot on the heels of the news that Australia would be the fifth country to get Google Home (following the US, Canada, France, and the UK), it seems the smart home assistant has now learned its third language. The official Google blog in Germany has announced that Google Home will be available in the country from next month. It was only a matter of time really, as Google Wifi was made available there last month. This just leaves Japan to come, of the countries Google said would be getting the smart speaker this summer.

Google Home and Wifi will launch in Australia on July 20th

It's been nine months since Google Home launched in the US, but in that time, it was made available for purchase in only three other countries: Canada, France, and the United Kingdom. The story is much the same for Google Wifi, with only those three countries, along with Germany, deemed worthy enough to have it sold there. But in just a few days, our friends down under will be able to have Google Homes and Wifis of their very own.

Google uses World Emoji Day to talk about killing the blobmoji, tries to make up for it with Allo stickers

Google is preparing to kill the blob emoji in Android O, which will feature more conventional emoji faces. I just want to go on record saying I love the Android blob emoji, or blobmoji if you will. As if this injustice was not enough, Google is using World Emoji Day to talk about the death of the blobmoji. It's giving us some stickers to make up for it, but you have to use Allo to send them.

The open source GaleForce project lets you root Google Wifi

Google Wifi came out last year to join the increasingly competitive mesh router market. It has a competitive price compared to the competition, and we found the performance to be solid. It might be nice if it had a few more features, though, right? That's where the GaleForce project comes in. You can use GaleForce to tweak your Google Wifi and gain root access, but it's not for the faint of heart.

We're coming up on a year since Allo launched, and some features we all wanted remain missing. There's no SMS support, no multi-device messaging, and no desktop client. Oh, Google keeps promising the desktop app, but instead we're getting message reactions. Yay?

Duo passes 100 million installs on the Google Play Store

Ever since Allo and Duo launched, Duo has seemed like the more 'complete' app. Whereas Allo is still missing critical functionality (like a desktop client/web app) nearly a year later, Duo has been a pretty solid product since day one. And now it has passed a major milestone, with the Play Store reporting that it has over 100 million installations.
