The Tale of 3 Google’s Innovations

Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) always has the element of surprise to it. From cool apps to smart gadgets, our favorite search engine and internet giant has it all. Some have even been caught in class saying that “Google knows more than God”, but let’s leave that statement for a different discussion. Currently, the news entails three new developments that will undoubtedly have fans swooning. A Google Chrome experiment that will take us through Middle Earth; rumors about Chromebooks incorporating voice command; and Youtube’s special appearance on the Xbox.

So let’s peek into each of these exciting items and see what this company has in store for us.

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)

Off to Middle Earth

Tonight, after dinner and before tucking into bed, take about 20 minutes time and drop by Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG)’s latest Chrome Experiment. The “Journey through Middle Earth”, as they call it, will allow users to explore the world of Lord of the Rings, by recreating the full map of Tolkien’s imaginary kingdom. Recreated with HTML, JavaScript and CSS technologies, the adventure is supposed to give Google fans and newcomers an accurate idea of the browser engine’s power. Also, they probably want to entertain you, since you can also play mini games while you discover the map route.

Rumor has it

We were all excited when Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) first announced that its newest version of Android would be taking our commands by saying “ok Google”. But now, Chromium evangelist François Beaufort stated that the vocal feature could extend even further. Although we’ll have to wait a while before the voice addition fully develops, Google could take the basic phrase and add on commands like “open Gmail”, or “chat with Samantha”. The soon-to-come voice function will eventually be able to receive orders for your Chromebook, so keep your ears peaked for this development.

YouTube meshes with the Xbox One

In case you were wondering whether Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s latest game console, the Xbox One, would still be featuring the popular YouTube app, then wonder no more. The answer is yes. As Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) announced today, the user interface of this editions YouTube app will be like the Xbox 360’s version, but with better voice control and gesture navigation. Apart from displaying play, pause and skip forward controls by saying “YouTube”, you’ll be able to scroll through the videos using gestures. Another perky addition: the app will also provide channels, subscriptions and trending videos.
