Google's constantly adding little server-side updates to its app in an aim to make things just a little bit easier. The latest addition a reader has spotted is a card entitled 'People also view' that shows up while you're reading through a webpage that you've clicked on from the Google app.

As you might be able to guess from the card's title, it tries to show you what other people who searched for the same thing as you have clicked on.

Google is testing a 5-tab design for the Google app

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

It's a crap-shoot when you open the app, and some users are getting something completely new in the last couple days. The new 5-tab layout bears some resemblance to a UI we've seen before, but it's a bit cleaner. So, add this to the list of things you might see when you swipe over to Google.

Oh Google, you and your server-side tests. You cause so many people to have different interfaces on their Google apps and create mass confusion, yet we still love you.

Google says recurring reminders on Android Wear are fixed (again)

Friday, October 27th, 2017

The saga of recurring reminders on Android Wear has been a long and dramatic one. For the uninitiated, some saw their recurring reminders on Android Wear being regularly marked as done and disappearing without having seen them. First, it was broken, then it was fixed, then it wasn't actually fixed. But today it's fixed. Again. Probably. We'll see.

We've been following the support thread for the issue over on Google's product forums for a while, and recently a Googler spoke out in the thread claiming that this bug had, in fact, been fixed.

When you search with Google on your device, either with the home screen search box/pill, in the Google feed pane, or directly in the Google app, you'll often see predictive search suggestions as you type your query. These come not only from the web, but from your contacts, songs in your Play Music account, and so on.
