Google Pixel : Pose by you, Phone by Google

Google is on a roll ever since and even before October 4 when it launched the first phones “made by Google.” The Search giant is really ramping up its advertising skills (and budget) for the Pixel and Pixel XL while we wait for the phones to ship starting October 20th in the States and 26th in India.

Additionally, you can use emoji (yep, really) to search your uploads, and the folder view page and Windows 10 Photos app have also gotten an overhaul. Microsoft’s love of Pokémon Go is on display here too: screenshots from the game will be grouped according to pocket monster, using machine learning to ID and group them. Now that shot of a Pidgey sitting on your BFF’s shoulder will only a couple of taps away.
