Android Jelly Bean


Google has already released Android 4.1 code name: Jelly Bean

here are a few of the new features in Jelly Bean and a few Tips and Tricks as well that you can try out on Jelly Bean!

 

Google Now

This is one of the most highlighted feature of Jelly Bean. With this feature you can now get all you information like weather, location, sports,news, searches etc all in one place, which save a lot of effort in going to various apps for doing different things. Users can quickly launch Google Now from the home screen or from the lock screen, by long pressing the home button a white semicircle pops out with the Google logo printed on it. Now, just drag your finger towards the logo and it will instantly launch Google Now. The Google Now function can also be launched by pressing the Back button on the home screen and then moving your finger towards the same semicircle and logo that appears on the screen.

Google Now

You can also talk to Google now same as Apple’s Siri ask random questions and “Now” will answer back or search the web for relevant information. not as good as Siri though, but it’s a start in that direction.

Google Search History


how many of you did know that all the searches you do on Google are actually stored and can be viewed too.!! ?

Shocked? It’s true. You can view your Google search history by clicking on this link:

Google Search History

This search history will be associated with a Gmail account i.e only those searches will be saved here which are done by you when you were actually logged-on to Google through any of the Google’s products and will be linked to your Gmail account. How to know that you are logged on or not? Simple – go to www.google.com and see at the top there will be something like this :

there will be your name at the top right side (This is for the new look of Google in which they have integrated it with Google+)

many users won’t be too happy on knowing that their history and actions are being recorded and saved by Google (for privacy or whatever reasons) so, for them there is an option to turn of this feature by clicking on the ‘Pause’ button in the Web history option as shown below.

Optionally you can also delete all of your previous history (by clicking on Remove all web history) or only some selective items (by clicking on Remove)

In the screenshot above, it shows “Your current search history is currently empty” because I had paused the feature of web history and hence no history was being saved.

Enjoy! 😀

Google: Trick #4: Recursion


Trick #4: Recursion

Hey guys, the Google trick for today is recursion its a very small trick, and for those of you who do not know what recursion means, this might help. It’s basically a thing or a function which repeats over itself again and again.

So, go to www.google.com

type “recursion” in the search box. (without the quotes)

and press enter.

notice how Google will give a suggestion to you like this:

 why is that? you have typed the spelling correctly still it is giving you a spell check suggestion? click on the suggestion, you will notice that nothing happens and you get back to the same page with the spelling suggestion still being shown.

This is a trick by Google in which it shows recursion in the search. as, clicking on recursion will again lead you to the same page and will still keep you giving the spelling suggestion even though your spelling is correct – i.e. recursion.

Enjoy! 😀
