The tech giant also promised that new editing features will be added to Google Maps on an ongoing basis.

However that may be an issue of the previous because of Google ’ s new AutoDraw software, which turns your ugly doodles into clear graphics. It’s extremely easy to make use of, and an entire lot of enjoyable.

But that might be a problem of the past thanks to Google ’ s new AutoDraw tool, which turns your ugly doodles into clean graphics. Click on one of the suggestions, and the app will replace your sketch…

It’s incredibly simple to use, and a whole lot of fun. Start drawing, and Google starts guessing what you’re trying to draw with a banner running atop the page. Basically, imagine a robot trying to play pictionary.

Click on one of the suggestions, and the app will replace your sketch with a nice clean bit of artwork. It will then suggest some other artwork that might more closely approximate what you were looking for.

Google's next smart speaker may double as a WiFi router

  Google's next smart speaker may double as a WiFi router If you're Google and you want the next Home speaker to clearly one-up the Amazon Echo, what do you do? Stick another device inside, apparently. The tipster also maintains that the original version of Google WiFi had a microphone and speaker for Home-style interactions, but that Google axed it to avoid confusion. It's possible that this version would come back, the source says, but there don't appear to be any definite plans.

You can color in the graphics and apped other shapes and objects as well if you’d like, before exporting the file as a PNG

Still, it’s a pretty awesome proof-of-concept, and with the included rudimentary editing techniques to color in and modify the graphics, it might just be useful too. 

Google wants better international rules for data requests .
<p>We know governments send requests to Google for our data. We know they sometimes get a court order, and they've even done so secretly.</p>And though Google puts out a semiannual transparency report giving us a broad sense of how often governments are asking to access private data of its users, Google says a new problem has cropped up: The number of requests from governments outside the US is growing.
