Google removes Duo access for G Suite users (Update: Working again)

Despite getting lots of extra features, G Suite users often feel like they've drawn the short end of the stick when it comes to any of Google's general consumer-facing options and services. Over the past year alone, we've seen G Suite users get shafted with code redeeming and app reviews on the Play Store, Stadia access, and several Assistant features like reminders, messages, and the new UI. Here's one more to add to the list of inaccessible features: Google Duo.

Google's cloud gaming service, Stadia, begins trialing on November 19 — you'll need to buy a $130 Founder's Edition kit to get access — and is expected to expand to the general audience sometime in 2020.

Stadia will soon have 4K on the web, support for additional Android phones, 120 new games, and more

Google launched Stadia late last year for those who bought the Founder's Edition bundle, and not much has changed since then. You still need to buy a spendy Pro bundle to unlock access to the game streaming service, and the feature set is limited. However, Google says it has big plans for Staia in Q1 2020. Many of the promised features will bulk up web support, but you'll also be able to play on more phones.

Now, Google has announced upcoming changes that will enable users to browse and compare clothes from multiple retailers with a single Google search.

The Advanced Protection Program is arguably the best way to secure access to all of your documents and information you've stored in your Google account. Until now, though, you were required to consign two security keys in order to get those extra safety measures and only one of them could be an Android phone. Those requirements seem to have changed today as Google has started allowing iOS devices to act as keys and letting users enroll into the program with just their mobile device, no backup key needed.

Google acquires Pointy to make it easier to find what your local businesses are selling

Online shopping and delivery have made it easier than ever to find and purchase new products, but those benefits haven't fully carried over to physical stores, especially for smaller merchants. In an effort to help out, a company called Pointy has developed some tech that it's been using with Google to let local retailers maintain an up-to-date online catalog of their in-store inventories. Now Google's looking to bring Pointy's assistance to even more stores, as it announces its intention to acquire the firm.
