Google on Wednesday announced a new tool “Work Insights” that entitles admins with more visibility and monitoring control into the ways that G-Suite is deployed and utilised in their organisations.

“Work Insights” comes with “adoption charts” where admins would be able to analyse trends, track deployment progress over time, monitor apps that are most adopted by teams and identify which ones may need additional training on applications.

“With ‘Work Insights,’ admins can quickly surface organisational insights about G-Suite deployments at the team level — aggregated at 10 people or more — and understand adoption patterns for G-Suite apps,” Reena Nadkarni, Group Product Manager, G-Suite, Google wrote in a blog post.

The new tool is built specifically to help businesses measure and understand the impact of internal digital transformation and also for when organisations transition from legacy tools to G-Suite apps.

“You can also use ‘Work Insights’ to learn how your teams are collaborating across your organisation — working together in meetings or co-creating documents. This insight can help executives identify opportunities to strengthen collaboration and reduce siloes,” Nadkarni added.

The search engine giant also announced the general availability of the “Investigation” tool in its “G-Suite Security Centre” to help organisations simplify their security management.

Google said Thursday it will start giving European Union smartphone users a choice of browsers and search apps on its Android operating system, in changes designed to comply with an EU antitrust ruling.

Following an Android update, users will be shown two new screens giving them the new options, Google product management director Paul Gennai said in a blog post.

The EU’s executive Commission slapped the Silicon Valley giant with a record 4.34 billion euro (then $5 billion) antitrust fine in July after finding that it abused the dominance of Android by forcing handset and tablet makers to install Google apps, reducing consumer choice.

The commission had ordered Google to come up with a remedy or face further fines. The company, which is appealing the ruling, said the changes are being rolled out over the next few weeks to both new and existing Android phones in Europe.

Android users who open the Google Play store after the update will be given the option to install up to five search apps and five browsers, Gennai said. Apps will be included based on their popularity and shown in random order. Users who choose a search app will also be asked if they want to change the default search engine in the phone’s Chrome browser.
