Finding community and customers through Growth Academy: Women Founders

11 August 2022 @ 12:00 pm

With thousands of highly-valued tech companies, a global-first market approach, and a strong economy dominated by entrepreneurship, it’s clear why Israel’s nickname is 'The Startup Nation.'However, this thriving startup ecosystem isn’t equally supportive of all aspiring founders. According to the latest Israeli Tech Gender Distribution Report, spearheaded by Google for Startups and IVC Data and Insights, only 2% of startups with a woman founder raised above $50 million between 2018 and 2021. While the number of entirely women-led companies has doubled in the past decade, they still only comprise 6.3% of Israeli startups — and only 13.9% of startups had at least one woman co-founder in a mixed-g

Help kids learn to read with Read Along, now available on the web

9 August 2022 @ 4:00 pm

Over the past three years, more than 30 million kids have read more than 120 million stories on Read Along. The app, which was first released as Bolo in India in 2019 and released globally as Read Along the following year, helps kids learn to read independently with the help of a reading assistant, Diya.As kids read stories aloud, Diya listens and gives both correctional and encouraging feedback to help kids develop their reading skills. Read Along has been an Android app so far, and to make it accessible to more users, we have launched the public beta of the website version. The website contains the same magic: Diya’s help and hundreds of well illustrated stories across several languages.With the web version, parents can let their children use Read Along on bigger screens by simply logging into a browser

Ask a Techspert: What’s breaking my text conversations?

9 August 2022 @ 3:00 pm

Not to brag, but I have a pretty excellent group chat with my friends. We use it to plan trips, to send happy birthdays and, obviously, to share lots and lots of GIFs. It’s the best — until it’s not. We don’t all have the same kind of phones; we’ve got both Android phones and iPhones in the mix. And sometimes, they don’t play well together. Enter “green bubble issues” — things like, missing read receipts and typing indicators, low-res photos and videos, broken group chats…I could go on describing the various potential communication breakdowns, but you probably know what I’m talking about. Instead, I decided to ask Google’s Elmar Weber: What’s the problem with messaging between different phone platforms?First, can you tell me what you do at Google?I lead several engineerin

How Google Assistant helped me spend more time outside

8 August 2022 @ 3:00 pm

Summer is my favorite season, and whenever it comes around, I always try to soak up as much sunshine as I can. But with my schedule, it can be tough to carve out quality outdoor time. So as we hit the end of summer in the U.S., I set a challenge for myself — to get outside every day during the week. And as a member of the Google Assistant team, I knew Assistant could help give me that extra nudge out the door. Here’s how it went.MondayAfter a full day of meetings at the office, I needed to clear my head. Instead of just heading home like I normally would, I asked my Assistant, “Hey Google, what parks are nearby?” It showed a handful of options near me. I ended up heading to Murphey Candler Park, one of my favorites in Atlanta, for a long walk to help me recharge my batteries.

Meet the team responsible for hacking Google

8 August 2022 @ 1:00 pm

Creating safe and secure products for everyone is the top priority for Google's security teams. We work across the globe to keep up with current threats, improve security controls, conduct attack detection/prevention, and eliminate entire classes of vulnerabilities by driving new and better frameworks. Our teams also actively monitor adversaries, making sure we have all the intelligence to be prepared for malicious activity and targeted campaigns against our Googlers or the people who use our services daily.Today, we would like to shine a spotlight on one security team at Google — the Red Team — that supports all of these efforts in a way that might initially seem counterintuitive: by hacking Google.The term “Red Team

Celebrating India’s Independence on Google Arts & Culture

5 August 2022 @ 7:30 am

Information can empower people, their cultures and their sense of history. It can also help us understand the world around us today. That’s why we built Google Arts & Culture — to put the world’s cultural treasures at anyone’s fingertips and help museums and other cultural organizations share more of our diverse heritage with the world.Today, ahead of the Independence Day of India on August 15, we’re launching a new collection: ‘India Ki Udaan’, published in English and Hindi.
