Just as most smartphone cameras now allow users to focus on a single object among many, it may soon be possible to pick out individual voices in a crowd by suppressing all other sounds, thanks to a new Artificial Intelligence (AI) system developed by Google researchers.

"We're working on some major updates to Gmail (they're still in draft phase)", a Google spokesperson told the site.

U.S. tech giants see Africa as a relatively untapped market for smartphones and services such as web search and social media. Other new features are expected to include the ability to snooze emails, and Google Inbox-style automations that pull out relevant content such as order tracking numbers.

Though not much details have been forthcoming from the company, observers link this move to the new design already unveiled in the Google Calendar app that saw new bright colors and modern icons and so on. Exposing them to regular email users is less common, though with Google pushing its service not only to the public but businesses as well, Gmail's additions could make it more alluring for companies looking to jump ship with their email service.

Smart replies, a carryover from Inbox, are being added to Gmail. You can just tap this calendar panel, check the date, and reply back to the email.

Gov. Abbott pledges to send 1400 troops to Texas-Mexico border
California Governor Jerry Brown said the 400 members from his state would not build the wall or enforce federal immigration laws. Karisch said the agencies were developing a "planned, phased approach" for using the National Guard troops on the border.

If you take a photo of a dog or cat that's not yours and you want to know what breed it is, you can use the Google Lens preview from within the Photos app.

What's up with the new Gmail?

The new "More results" button will allow mobile users to load additional search results beyond the first set that are displayed.

Google Go is available today in 26 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa through the Google Play Store for devices running Android v4.3 (Jelly Bean) and above, and will come pre-installed on all Android Oreo (Go edition) devices.

Tech giant Google has now rolled out a new "More Results" in Search for its mobile users. If your boss asks if you've completed one of your Google tasks, you can scroll through those without closing the email. As the original, official smartphones that were manufactured and sold under the Google umbrella, the handsets generated a fair bit of buzz when they were announced and when they hit the market.
