Google has announced a new feature which would make personalised recommendations of what to watch, including both TV shows and movies, to make its search tool more user-friendly.

The new tool appears only when users search for things such as “what to watch” or “good shows to watch” from their smartphones. Google is making it easier to help users to watch by swiping left to dislike or right to like a particular show or movie.

“When you are settling in for a movie night or figuring out which shows you might want to binge before they return this fall, it’s not always easy to choose from all the options out there. If you’re like me, you have a few different streaming subscriptions, and you might find yourself spending more time browsing across multiple apps than actually watching a movie or TV show,” Matt Sheets, a product manager at Google Search, wrote in a blog post introducing the new tool.

“That is why we created an easy way for you to find recommendations on Google when you search for things like ‘what to watch’. To start, you can choose which TV and movie subscriptions you already have. You will not only get personalised recommendations for what’s available to you but also quickly see where to watch your picks.”

The new search feature is currently available in the US and it is likely to launch in the UK and other markets in the coming months. (IANS)

Google Pixel fans can expect a brighter camera and beefed up processing power in the upcoming Pixel 4 XL, according to new leaked images of a pre-release Pixel 4 XL provided by Vietnamese phone shop D Store Mobile, the media reported.

The primary rear camera will reportedly snap shots with a brighter f/1.73 aperture. Last year’s Pixel 3 had an aperture of f/1.8.

“Leaks of the upcoming camera app suggest that the phone will shoot in 16:9 by default so that photos can take up the entire camera screen, despite the sensor remaining 4:3. The effect is similar to what Apple is doing on the iPhone 11 models, which take advantage of the phone’s extra wide-angle lens to fill the screen,” The Verge reported on Saturday.

The details of the telephoto camera aren’t available as of now but it can be safely presumed there would be significant improvements to low-light photos and close-ups.

The speedy 90Hz OLED screen remains the highlight, but one will also get a Snapdragon 855 processor with 6GB RAM, a 3,700mAh battery (on the XL) and 128GB of UFS storage on at least one model, according to Engadget. (IANS)
