Google's health-tracking wristband will do more than the Apple Watch

Services & Software
[MUSIC] What's good? Brian Tong here, with all that Googliciousness. Everything Google that we can pack inside of a show. Let's get to it, and the G-Men and women are aiming directly at Apple Music, with the announcement that they'll be adding a free tier to its Google music play service. Now it will be ad supported radio option with stations curated by people. So it's basically their answer to iTunes radio. To be clear, this does not give you the ability to create your own custom playlist and listen to them for free. You'll still need to pay the $9.99 monthly fee to do that. Now the ad supported radio is launching in the US, it's available right now on the web and rolling out to android and iOS devices soon. Now that's not the only thing google is up to this week, the Google app team likes to surprise us with one of their top secret projects they've been working on the past couple of years And this time, it's a health-tracking wristband that can monitor heart rate, heart rhythm, skin temperature, and environmental conditions like light exposure and noise levels. Sure, there are plenty of smart watches out there, but Google's life sciences team hopes for this device to be eventually prescribed to patients or used in clinical trials with the medical-grade information it can collect. Google says it's still in a very experimental phase. All right, switching to wearables, and Android continues to pump out new bells and whistles for its users. This time it's 17 new watch faces from brands like Rubik's Cube, Angry Birds, and my niece's favorite but one that I would never care about at all because it's too cutesy. Hello Kitty. Now these are all available to download for free through the Google Play store. Google also recently announced a new effort to use their resources and technologies for what they're calling News Lab. It combines things like YouTube videos, maps, data, image search and pulls from Google Trends, which has been revamped and the new version was built specifically with journalists in mind. It's an effort to really collaborate with journalists using Google tools. Data and programs. We all see how storytelling is constantly innovating, thanks to tech. And this is their way of being part of it. At Google I/O, one of the big reveals was Project Jump and the Big G's commitment to bringing virtual reality to the mainstream by making it cheaper. to produce content and publish it on YouTube. The company now has a sign up if you're a creator who wants to be a part of this movement. It requires you to fill out a long form and how you currently use media and I'm just crossing my fingers that they let someone who produces video content and allows them to get on board and try this out. Also, Android TV isn't dead, yes it's taken time to start rolling out new TV sets But Sony just announced their new 4K Android TV based X900C TVs with 55 and 65-inch configurations that start at $2500. And if you've ever lost your cool or started writing out something really emotional that you wish you never sent and that you wish you could take it back but now it's too late when you told her and You can't take it back and things wont be the same. Well, I haven't but Gmail is finally making the undo send feature standard on Gmail, and it allows you to cancel the sending of an email within a specific number of seconds after it's sent. Now if you don't see it, just go to the 'Settings" page within Gmail, go to the general tab and then "Enable Undo Send" and you can choose how many seconds you have to cancel it as well. Thank you Google. Alright guys and gals, that's going to do it for this weeks show. You can always e-mail us at googlicious@cnet.com or tweet me @briantong. Thanks for watching. We'll see you all next time for some more of that googlicious. [MUSIC] Googlicious.
