Google is now integrated into the iMessage apps drawer

  Google is now integrated into the iMessage apps drawer Google has announced that its app for iOS is introducing several new changes today. For starters, the Google app for iOS now supports an iMessage extension that lets users search for and share things like videos, businesses, and more when messaging others. In the example below, icons like “Food” or “Nearby” can be tapped to discover and then share locations directly within iMessage. To the right of the search bar is a dedicated button which switches things into GIF Search mode. If you already have the Google app, as long as you’re updated to the newest version, it should automatically appear in the iMessage apps drawer.

Google and LG are set to present an 18-megapixel 4.3-inch OLED headset display with 1443 ppi and a higher refresh rate of 120Hz during the Display Week 2018 It’s still unclear if Google and LG will be able to deliver such an extremely high - resolution VR display in a consumer headset this year.

Google and LG are set to present an 18-megapixel 4.3-inch OLED headset display with 1443 ppi and a higher refresh rate of 120Hz during the Display Week 2018 trade show in late May. The display will have a wide field of view and high acuity. The advanced program for the expo was spotted by Android Police via OLED-Info.

Those specs make the forthcoming headset better than most of what’s on the market. Screens like the new HTC Vive Pro and Oculus Rift only boast total resolutions of 2880 x 1600 and 2160 x 1200, respectively.

While the advanced program doesn’t reveal the panel’s resolution, we can speculate based on the pixel density and size that the screen’s resolution could be within the 5500 x 3000 range.

Google brings voice calling to Home speakers in the UK

  Google brings voice calling to Home speakers in the UK It's taken a while, but finally Google Home speakers in the UK can be used to make hands-free voice calls. The feature was announced at Google I/O 2017 and introduced in the US last August. Brits have waited patiently since then (or switched to Alexa, which has offered voice calls since October) for the same functionality — today, that mental fortitude pays off. To get started, simply say "Ok Google" or "Hey Google" followed by the person or business you'd like to call. You don't need your phone either — the speaker will use Google Contacts as an address book and place the call over Wi-Fi.

The next step for virtual reality could be headsets with pixel-dense displays, which could solve problems like when the boundaries between pixels are visible or when diagonal lines look rough and sharp. It’s still unclear if Google and LG will be able to deliver such an extremely high-resolution VR display in a consumer headset this year.

You can finally send money to your contacts by asking Google Assistant .
Google is rolling out the ability to send peer-to-peer payments with Google Assistant. Starting today (only in the US), iPhone and Android users can say something like “Send Lauren $2,” and Assistant will take you through the steps to send the money via Google Pay. Your recipient will also need to set up Google Pay to receive the funds.In January of this year, Google finally ended the Google Wallet / Android Pay confusion by merging them into the Google Pay system. Although, the confusion still exists: for the next few months, there will still be a separate “Google Pay Send” app for peer-to-peer payments.
