Inside Scoop: Inside Scoop: Google updates Gmail, streams music, and counts calories

3:08 /

It's been a busy week for Google, with the company rolling out updates and changes to its services. In this Inside Scoop, CNET's Kara Tsuboi and Seth Rosenblatt discuss Gmail's face-lift, the music-streaming service soon to be available on iOS devices, and how Google wants to improve your health.

-Hey, everyone. Welcome to the Inside Scoop. I'm CNET's Kara Tsuboi joined by senior writer Seth Rosenblatt. Seth covers Google and Google has been on the headlines a lot this week. -Uh-hmm. -Let's start with the Gmail update. -Uh-hmm. -As a Gmail user, I'm really interested in these new tabs that are coming out. -Yes. So your Gmail will soon have tabs across the top, which will automatically filter your primary e-mail. It'll filter your social network e-mails, it will filter your deals updates and it's really quite an interesting look for Gmail. It's a new thing to help people filter the e-mail better, because in the past you've had to create filters-- -Right. -This is all automatic. What's nice about the new Gmail is that you can turn it off, and the old interface is still there. -Will these tabs be available on both the browser version and the mobile version? -Uh-hmm. So they absolutely getting an update for Android and iOS and the web-browser will also update. -And as we'll be rolling out-- -In the next few weeks. -Okay. Also, Google made an announcement about their new music service becoming available for iOS. -Absolutely. -Tell us more. -Again, we don't know too much. They haven't said much at this point, but Google's all-access will be available for iOS sometime in the next few weeks possibly as late as June or July. They haven't said. -This is a new music streaming service has announced earlier in May. -Uh-hmm. -And how was it then received so far for Android users? -So far it seems like Android users like it. When you sign up for it-- and it's separate from the standard Google Music, which allows you to get all of your music when you want streaming over the cloud. This is more like Spotify for Google, although it's all run out of the same app. If you sign up now, you'll get 30-day free trial and if you sign up before June 30th, it's 7.99 per month. Thereafter, it's 9.99 per month. -All right. So we'll keep it-- an eye out for that one. And finally, Google has also announced that they're sort of getting into the nutrition or calorie-counting business. -Yes. There's nothing that they don't touch apparently. -How is this going to work? -So basically, Google Now, which is their knowledge graph made real, it's this enormous database of almost 600 million things pieces information and data and all the-- and the ability to tell the difference between the king's team and the king of Thailand, stuff like that. -Wow. -Will be available-- nutrition information will now be available in Google Now. So you can look up say, how many calories are in an apple and it will pull up a card that says how many calories are in an apple. -And how is that going to work? Do you use your voice or do you type it? -Oh, it can do both. -Okay. And the point of this? -I guess Google wants people to live longer so that you can continue to buy their services. Get people locked in longer. -But this is a free service. -This is free. This is part of Google Now and Google Search. -And we expect it to roll out in the near future. -Again in the near future. Google has been very non-committal recently on its announcements. -All right. Fascinating stuff, a lot to look forward to. Thank you so much. -Thank you Kara. -Senior writer Seth Rosenblatt. I'm Kara Tsuboi. Thanks for watching the Inside Scoop.
