Google Assistant is getting a new interface on Android devices that will make it easier to get things done and cut the number of steps as well. Google has announced that it will add touch-interactive elements to replies within Google Assistant for better and quicker interactions with your phone. New Overview look For example, when you ask Google Assistant to dim your lights, it will now show you the relevant slider and will let you adjust the dimmer right from the Google Assistant screen. Ask it to show you photos of something, and you'll get more than just a link with previews - the new update would let you scroll through a gallery of Photos rather than direct you to an image search result.

Google adds Smart Bidding for search partners

Google adds Smart Bidding for search partners

Google Site Search
Google announced Tuesday that auctions on search partner sites may use Smart Bidding instead of smart pricing when an advertiser has conversion tracking set up. Why you should care Google says Smart Bidding can offer better performance because it takes into account more contextual signals “to optimize bids for each and every auction.” Smart pricing, which has been used to power manual bids for search partners, looks at signals such as the keyword lists or concepts that triggered the ad and the type of page on which the ad was served. With Smart Bidding, Google says, the bids are automatically optimized on search partner sites, using the same signals as smart pricing plus attributes about potential customers. “For example, bids may be reduced if the potential

Google wants to make the transition back into civilian life smoother for U.S. military veterans by adding tools that help them find jobs or promote their businesses. One new feature is an initiative of Grow with Google, the company’s career development program. It helps veterans discover job openings relevant to the skills they learned while serving by entering the phrase “jobs for veterans” into Google’s search engine along with their military job codes. Employers and job boards can also enable the feature on their own sites by using Google’s Cloud Talent Solution, a machine-learning based job search platform. In a Google announcement, Matthew Hudson, a Google Cloud program manager and former Air Force civil engineer who served three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, wrote that vet
