What’s better than listening to podcasts that reflect your interests and the ingrained things into your routine? Google has done it once again! Now users can also easily listen to the content they like through automatic updates on the application of Google Podcast. The success of Your News Update by Google led the company to furnish its idea of machine learning and bring about a whole new personalization feature to the world.
The process of personalization is a complex method that enables the system to understand your likes and dislikes depending on the data they keep of you. Once the system makes itself familiar with it, it starts throwing in suggestions for you according to your preferences and traits. Google Assistant, however, takes orders from its users and performs the task. According to Google, the content in your browser and apps become more personalized when you use Google Assistant more than your search engine. The main purpose of all Google-related applications is to keep track of all the activities performed by you. The data stored in your browser allows Google database engines to run and show only relevant data to the user.
If you wish to keep this feature off, you can easily go to the settings of your cellphone and switch it off right then. However, in most cases, users prefer to keep this feature enabled, so they only come across content that is regularly followed by them, be it a book, a newspaper from the Google News, or a specific location.
To conclude, the personalization feature has brought tremendous success to Google, and with the launch of better inventions each year, the progress has multiplied even more. Google Assistant, Your News Update, and many similar features have made headlines in the past decade, and as promised by Google, more headlines are on their way shortly with even better services.
