Welcome to The Connected Church news!
Our first big news is from Google.
Our first big news of this week is from Google. Last week, Google held its annual developers conference. This is the annual conference where Google makes major announcements each year. And this year they had multiple products and services released.
Many of the features that they released were related to Android. They are releasing Android 12 very soon. Android is going to get features like television remote control built into the phone, you’re going to have the ability to unlock your car using your phone, you’re going to have the ability to translate text – just point your phone on a text and click a picture with it using Google Lens, and it will translate it into various languages, 100 different languages. So things like that are mostly coming to Android. But the key feature that I wanted to bring to your notice is the feature called Smart Canvas.
Please check out this particular feature in detail, because I think it’s going to be useful for many churches, ministries, and nonprofits. Because many of you use Google products, including G Suite (or) Google workspace, this product is going to really make things easier for you. Because they are bringing together Google Doc, Google Sheet, Google, Meet and all these functionalities into one document.
