Just like .com or .org, Google has now rolled out “.app” top-level domain (TLD) for app developers who can book the domain name from Google Registry.

A TLD is the last part of a domain name, like .com in “www.google.com” or .google in “blog.google”.

“.app that comes with added security is the first top-level domain (TLD) to require HTTPS encryption,” Google said in a blog post on Tuesday.

A key benefit of the .app domain is that security is built in.

“The big difference is that HTTPS is required to connect to all .app websites, helping protect against ad malware and tracking injection by ISPs, in addition to safeguarding against spying on open WiFi networks,” Google said.

Till May 7, users can register “.app” domains through Google’s “Early Access Programme.”

Users can also pay more to secure other domains before the general public can get to them, the search-engine giant confirmed.

Google acquired the top-level domain (TLD) “.app” in 2015 for $25 million.  (IANS)

Google is set to release a new system update called the “H Update” to its “Wear Operating System (OS)” with features like the battery saver, body efficiency and smart app resume.

“In the next few months, you should soon see a system update on your device labeled ‘System Version: H’,” a Community Manager at Wear OS, Google wrote in a blog-post on Thursday.

The new battery saver mode that would come with the “H Update” to Android-based smart-watches would extend the device battery further by turning on “Battery Saver” to only display the time once your battery falls below 10 per cent.

“Additionally, after 30 minutes of inactivity your watch will go into deep sleep mode to conserve battery,” the post added.

The search-engine giant is also included a 2-step power off functionality that would enable users to turn off their watches by holding the power button until they see the power off screen and then choose to either “power off” or “restart.”
