Pixel 6 Tensor CPU design revolves around Machine Learning

This shouldn't really come as much of a surprise.

Google Play Data Safety starts accepting developer submissions

Privacy has become a hot topic in tech in the past few years, especially on mobile. Apple has even made it an important selling point for its products, especially iPhones and iOS.

Stadia Controller and Android TV will soon play nicer with each other

Stadia Controller and Android TV will soon play nicer with each other

Stadia has always been an odd duck among Google's myriad products. While it does have ties to the company's expertise in cloud computing and ML-based optimizations to network communications, it was Google's first major foray into the mainstream gaming industry.
