Sundar Pichai took on the U.S. house judiciary committee for several hours of questioning.
We've got a full highlight package up on our YouTube channel.
Long story short, Pichai said the company does not have any political bias.
He also said Google does not have any current plans to launch a product in China.
Pichai also said that the company had looked into the concept internally With a team of over 100 people.
Otherwise, we also learned that technology is still a very difficult concept for certain lawmakers to handle.
It's not a trick question.
You know, you make $100,000 a year.
You ought to be able to answer that question.
Does Google know, through this phone, that I am moving over there and sitting next to Mr.
Johnson, which would make him real nervous?
Google announced that Assistant is getting even smarter.
This time, Assistant will proactively tell you If your flight is predicted to be delayed, you will also see why the flight would be delayed.
Google says, it uses historical flight status data combined with machine learning to make predictions about flight delays.

This is the part of the show where we shine a spotlight at the most amazing audience the world you guys Angelo asks, what happened to Project Loon.
That's a good question.
We haven't covered a major development of loon for a long time.
Last I checked loon signed a deal with telkom Kenya.
To provide Internet services by balloon.
The service should go live in 2019.

X is Alphabet's research and development unit.
apagoogoo says, I will really miss Google plus.
It was really versatile and handy, and useful for everyday toggling between my work life and personal life, And of course I'm kidding, I find it annoying because it kept trying to conflate the me that makes music videos with the me that does everything else.
Never signed up for it, never used it, and still it managed to negatively impact me.
Well stated thanks to everyone for riding in if you've enjoyed your stay in alphabet city please like and subscribe.
