Google has a special keyboard app called Gboard, which is getting more cool. They are bringing something called “Conversation Starters.” This new feature will be like a helper that suggests funnier things to talk about when you are chatting with your friends.
As per the Telegram channel where they hinted about this feature, which is secretly put into the Gboard app. The company has already been working around this to make sure everything goes right when it is released for everyone.
Gboard already fixes your writing and changes how you sound when you talk. Now it will help in your chats. Suppose you are staring at an empty box where you are basically typing a message. You need to just tap on the button that says “Proofread,” and then lots of different things come on the screens like Travel, Music, News, Sports, Movies, Food, and many more cool topics.
Apart from this, there is another secret because Google is still working on it to make it work more perfectly. The developers at Google are trying their best to provide better fund conversation in the app.
However, Google’s Gboard is becoming more helpful than before, and it’s turning into more than just a simple keyboard. It will become your friend to help you while chatting.
Currently, this feature is still being tested so might get even better as time goes on. So we have too little more for this when Google releases this version of Gboard for everyone.
Netflix Co-CEO Rules Out App for Apple Vision Pro for Now
Recently, pre-orders for the Apple Vision Pro were started. According to Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst has reported sales of around 160,000 to 180,000 units of the Vision Pro. In context to the sales of Apple Vision Pro, Netflix Co-CEO Greg Peters revealed in an interview that there is no need for the Netflix app in Apple’s VR headset.
In that interview, Peters also defined that the number of subscribers can’t justify the attempts to port an app for a platform. In the future, there may be a Netflix app for Apple’s VR headset, but currently, Netflix is adopting a wait-and-see approach. For now, YouTube and Spotify have no plans for dedicated apps.
As we also mentioned in the recent post of the Apple Vision Pro, you can use the apps via the browser in the Vision Pro. Apple’s own Apple TV+ streaming services are available on the Apple Vision Pro, which features “Apple Immersive Video” with Spatial Audio and 180° 3D footage in 8K resolution.
Similarly, Netflix has also a VR app which was launched in back 2015, that also offers VR Content and includes a 360° video for the Stranger Things Series, but for now, it’s not available in Apple Vision Pro. Netflix has a ton of VR movies that you can also check out.
