  2. Google announces Flutter 2 with support for the web and desktop apps Google LLC pushed out a major update today to its open-source Flutter framework that’s used to build applications that can run on multiple computing platforms.

Flutter is a framework that’s used by developers to build “native” apps on operating system
  3. Google plans to stop targeting ads based on your browsing history It's a big step towards becoming more privacy focused. NurPhoto via Getty Images In a major change for its core business model, Google said today that it plans to stop selling ads that rely on your individual web browsing history. Additionally, it won't build any tools to track your data across its products in the future. The announcements come after Google has committed to removing support for third-party cookies in Chrome, a move that would effectively kill the main source of data tracking
  4. What are these suspicious Google GVT1.com URLs? Certain Google-owned domains have caused Chrome users, from even the most skilled researchers to regular users, to question whether they are malicious. The domains I am referring to are redirector.gvt1.com and gvt1/gvt2 subdomains that have spun many questions on the internet. After receiving multiple concerned questions over the years, BleepingComputer has dug deeper into the domains' origin and whether they should be something to worry about. What are these suspicious gvt1.com domains? The doma

Less than two years later, that dream has collapsed.Photograph: David Paul Morris/Bloomberg/Getty Images In March 2019, Google CEO Sundar Pichai took the stage at the Gam
  6. Google funds Linux maintainers to boost Linux kernel security Together with the Linux Foundation, Google announced today that they would fund two Linux kernel developers' efforts as full-time maintainers exclusively focused on improving Linux security. "While there are thousands of Linux kernel developers, all of whom take security into consideration as the due course of their work, this contribution from Google to underwrite two full-time Linux security maintainers signals the importance of security in the ongoing sustainability of open-source softw
  7. Samsung to supply foldable OLED panels to Google, OPPO, and Xiaomi Samsung is by now a veteran in the foldable smartphone space, culminating with the company’s excellent Galaxy Z Fold 2. It’s no wonder competitors would look to the company as they look to develop their own foldable devices. According to The Elec, Samsung is going to supply foldable OLED panels for devices from Google, OPPO, and Xiaomi. All of the panels are expected to be “in-folding,” with sizes ranging from 7.6 inches to 8.03 inches. As of now, all three of these companies are said to be
  8. Microsoft throws Google under the bus in European news fight Google has blasted "link tax" proposals as antithetical to the open Web. Robert Scoble / Flickr Microsoft is throwing its weight behind a European effort to force Big Tech companies to pay for the right to link to news articles. Google and Facebook have strongly opposed such proposals in both Europe and Australia, describing them as an attack on the open Web. Microsoft disagrees. "Access to fresh, broad, and deep press coverage is critical to the success o

Photo: Google Google told employees Friday it has wrapped up its investigation into the ouster of prominent AI researcher Timnit Gebru. The company declined to say what the internal inquiry found, but said it is making some changes to how it handles issues around research, diversity and employee exits. Why it matters: The treatment of Gebru, both before and after she was forced out of the company, has outraged people within Google's Ethical AI team and others inside and outsid
  10. Google’s Nearby Share now lets you share Android apps with friends Google’s Nearby Share feature in Android is a convenient way to share links, photos, and more with friends and family.

Enlarge / Close-up photography John Lamb | Getty Images Google and Facebook are rushing to agree to deals with Australian publishers, offering them the most generous licensing terms in the world in an attempt to persuade Canberra not to apply rules forcing tech groups to pay for news.

  12. Google is working on a “One-Handed Mode” for Android 12 Over the years, smartphone makers have made taller and taller devices. While that has made media consumption more enjoyable on mobile, it has resulted in making many phones impossible to use one-handed. To compensate, several phone makers have developed software solutions to improve one-handed usability: most notably Apple with its Reachability feature. Now, Google is set to bring its own version of one-handed mode in Android 12. XDA has now learned that Google has been developing a one-handed mode fea

  14. Google proposes way for Fuchsia OS to run Android and Linux programs ‘natively’ For years now, Google has been developing Fuchsia, an operating system that is distinctly not based on Linux. The latest proposal for Fuchsia OS shows how this “not Linux” operating system could run “unmodified” programs for both Android and Linux. One of the bigger issues with making a new operating system, particularly one that’s being built from scratch like Fuchsia, is that people will rightfully want to be able to run their favorite apps on that OS. In the case of Fuchsia,

  17. Google Launches Database for Open Source Vulnerabilities Google last week announced the launch of OSV (Open Source Vulnerabilities), which the internet giant has described as a vulnerability database and triage infrastructure for open source projects.

Google starts paying Australian publishers under its News Showcase program Google suspended in October of last year the launch of its News Showcase program in Australia amid regulatory hurdles in the country.

  19. Google's Payout to Bug Hunters Hits New High Over 660 researchers from 62 countries collected rewards for reporting bugs in Chrome, Android, and other Google technologies.

  20. Google may be working on a folding Pixel phone Samsung dominates the folding smartphone market, but nearly every other company are working on their own challengers, and it appears Google’s Pixel team is also planning to join the growing list. WindowsUnited has uncovered a number of patents describing the most important element of a folding phone – the hinge, and Google appears to have two ideas, with both inward and outward folding designs.

Google salvaged Robinhood’s one-star rating by deleting nearly 100,000 negative reviews Unhappy users have been review-bombing the app Google is actively removing negative reviews of the Robinhood app from the Google Play Store, the company confirmed to The Verge.

  22. Google shares its view on the impact of Apple's Privacy Policy changes on its partners Apple’s new app privacy notifications and user tracking changes introduced with iOS 14 have seen mixed reception from companies that rely heavily on ad revenue. Facebook, for instance, said that the changes will affect its business adversely since the challenges with collecting identifier for advertisers (IDFA) data affects the ability to serve personalized ads for users. Today, Google has shared its view of what the impact of the changes will be not only on it
  23. Google Cloud boosts security with general availability of zero-trust BeyondCorp Enterprise With enterprises rapidly reconfiguring their workforces and IT systems, new complexity is being introduced that risks expanding security vulnerabilities.

To counter that, over the past year Google has been releasing BeyondCorp, a version of its internal security that it developed over more than a decade. Now, Goog
  24. Weeks later, Google still hasn’t added privacy labels to its most popular iPhone apps Some of the apps that have the disclosures are unexpected Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Three weeks after Google promised it would add Apple’s mandatory app privacy labels “as soon as this week,” none of the company’s main apps have the labels, including Gmail, search, Photos, Docs, and YouTube.
