This is CNET and here are the stories that matter right now.
Google Hangouts is rolling out two new features that are designed to improve communication and productivity.
First is Meet which will allow users to seamlessly jump into a video conference just by clicking a link.
Second is called Chat which lets coworkers message each other in specific chat rooms Similar to how Slack is designed.
The new features are live now to all G Suite customers.
Android users who felt left behind when it comes to GIF support in a keyboard, finally have something to cheer about.
The latest update to Google's keyboard app brings with it GIF and emoji suggestions Oddly enough though, these features were present in the iOS version of the keyboards since it first launched almost a year ago.
And finally, owners of the Google Pixel and Pixel Excel smartphones that have microphone hiccups are now being told that their gripes with the devices are due to hardware issues.
It took a foreign post of nearly 800 complaints But Google now says customers can replace their phones using the product warranty.
