Google Shopping is getting a major overhaul in the US across both offline and online mobile sites and includes new features, including options to shop from local stores, track prices and find style inspiration through Google Lens.

The new homepage is now more personalised to your specific shopping preferences, and will automatically suggest reordering products you’ve previously bought and recommendations based on your Google activity, The Verge reported on Thursday.

The idea is that now, you’ll simply search for whatever it is you’re looking for, and then order it from wherever most makes sense, be it online, from a local store or from retailers selling directly through Google, the report added. (IANS)

Google has introduced a new feature ‘Focus Mode’ for Android devices designed to prevent its users from being consistently distracted by their smartphone.

The feature allows users to turn off distractions – like social media updates or email notifications – for a period of time, so a user can get things done without interruption.

Focus mode was first announced at Google’s developer conference in the summer as part of Android Q/10.

“Focus mode is a new Digital Wellbeing tool on Android, now out of beta, that helps you get things done by temporarily pausing apps so you can focus on the task at hand. You can select apps you currently find distracting (like social media or games) and if you try to open them, Focus mode will remind you that app is paused.
