UK users can now play tunes from YouTube Music on Google Home and Assistant

The switch from Google Play Music to YouTube Music hasn't been a very smooth one. Google is still ironing out the kinks, and one of the features that fell by the wayside was support for the new service on Google Home. See, even though YouTube Music has started rolling out in many countries, it can't be set as a music provider on Assistant or Home speakers in most of them. Only the US, Australia, and Mexico supported it until a couple of days ago, but the UK is joining them now.

[Update: Brazil too] Google Search job hunt feature now available in the UK

Finding the right job is pretty hard, as I'm sure we can all attest to. It's also not an easy task for employers looking to find the best candidates, as proven by the statistic that 75% of them struggle to hire people who are the right fit.

It only started out three years ago, as a celebration of Amazon's 20th birthday, but Prime Day has now turned into the summer's biggest day for deals.
