Google has accidentally leaked a new Pixel device called “3a” on its website, media reported.

“Pixel 3a” is being speculated to be Google’s long-rumoured “lite” version of the “Pixel 3” smartphone, The Verge reported on Friday.

While Google has taken down the information page from its website, as per the screenshots floating in the media, the search engine giant has bundled “Pixel Buds” and “Pixel 3a case” with the “3a” device.

“The phone were listed as ‘midyear experiences’ suggesting we wouldn’t have to wait until Google’s traditional October launch window for Pixel devices, but might see them as soon as this summer, possibly at Google’s I/O developer conference in May,” the report said.

The name “Pixel 3a XL” has also previously appeared in Android Q’s beta code, the media had reported.

“Neither the actual ‘Pixel 3a’ product page, nor a new ‘Pixel Compare’ page were live as of when we checked, so this leak has only really confirmed the name of the phone for now,” the report added. (IANS)

US based search engine giant Google has added ‘key moments for videos’ in search, to highlight the most relevant parts of longer videos, based on timestamps provided by the video creators.

With the new feature, users will be able to find key moments within the video that have multiple steps, long speeches or documentaries.

This video indexing would initially be available only for English searches involving YouTube videos.

“Starting today you can find key moments within videos and get to the information you are looking for faster, with help from content creators. When you search for things like how-to videos that have multiple steps, or long videos like speeches or a documentary, Search will provide links to key moments within the video, based on timestamps provided by content creators,” Prashant Baheti, Google Search product manager, wrote in a blog post on Tuesday.

“You will be able to easily scan to see whether a video has what you’re looking for, and find the relevant section of the content. For people who use screen readers, this change also makes video content more accessible,” Prashant added.
