"As speech-to-text technology continues to improve, we'll be able to provide new features like automatic subtitling, which is especially helpful if you are hearing impaired or in a noisy area without headphones", Reneau-Wedeen says.

The Wi-Fi Map feature shows you all the nearby Wi-Fi network with which you can find the best quality network nearby.

Also arriving this week are Smart Replies, suggesting quick text or emoji responses to your messages and the ability to see an inline preview for URLs included in your Messages conversation. You can also copy one-time passwords directly from the message without having to open the app. To get started, go to messages.android.com in your web browser where a QR code will appear.

The feature will become available for users this week, and can be enabled by selecting "Messages for web" under the More options menu in the mobile app. There's also a toggle to "Remember this computer". For instance, 20% of mobile data is used in the background by apps they haven't opened in over a month, and the Unused Apps feature displays the apps which you're not using, but that are consuming data in the background. When it's ready, your phone will vibrate.

What sets Google Podcasts apart from other podcasts apps? If you don't use your Android Messages account for 14 days, you'll automatically be signed.

Action man Mooy impresses in Australia's valiant defeat to France
Australia delivered a gritty display that bodes well for its next two matches. "I'm going away with 23 of my brothers, so we all get on well".


When you use the Google app to search for podcasts, you can launch directly into the Podcasts app (left) and it offers personalized recommendations (right). As for the messages pane, this is where you type out and manually send your messages. As per Google's blog post, text, images, and stickers are all supported on the new Web version.

The Messages icon will display a red notification on the browser tab when there are unread messages.

The new feature is being rolled out over the next week, and it works in much the same as WhatsApp Web.
