Google Maps Finally Gets The Incognito Mode

Search engine giant Google has finally started rolling out the Incognito mode feature to its Google Maps users. The feature had firs made its debut in the Google Chrome browser more than a decade back. The privacy-focused feature was first announced during the Google IO developer conference in May, 2019. It was first seen in Chrome in 2008 as a way to shop for presents for loved ones on a shared laptop or desktop PC without Chrome tracking the user’s web browsing history or Google searches, or any other web activity.

The feature was also rolled out to YouTube earlier in 2019 as a way to search for clips and video channels without leaving a trace. Now it is all set to come to Google Maps. When the Incognito mode is enabled on Google Maps, any activity that takes place during that session, from the places the users search for, the route that is planned for the journey, it will not be saved to the Google Account. The search engine will not be using the information that it gleans from the activity to personalize the user’s experience in Google Maps either.

This means that the restaurants the users look-up while in Incognito Mode will not appear in recommendations or points of interest on the map in future. However, it is otherwise very different from Google Maps’ usual behavior , that uses the activity and searches to try to tailor the experience for the users to go forward. This is not something the users will necessarily want if they are looking up a sensitive location like a hospital, a place of worship, or a family planning centre. This is crucial especially when the device is shared with someone else.

The Incognito mode can be made active by tapping on the profile picture in Google Maps. The feature is due to land within the Android app in the coming weeks and on iPhone and iPad soon.

Danger Close 2019 Sinhala Subtitles

South Vietnam, late afternoon on August 18, 1966 - for three and a half hours, in the pouring rain, amid the mud and shattered trees of a rubber plantation called Long Tan, Major Harry Smith and his dispersed company of 108 young and mostly inexperienced Australian and New Zealand soldiers are fighting for their lives, holding off an overwhelming enemy force of 2,500 battle hardened Main Force Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army soldiers. With their ammunition running out, their casualties mounting and the enemy massing for a final assault each man begins to search for his own answer - and the strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honor, decency and courage. The Battle of Long Tan is one of the most savage and decisive engagements in ANZAC history, earning both the United States and South Vietnamese Presidential Unit Citations for gallantry along with many individual awards. But not before 18 Australians and more than 245 Vietnamese are killed.

Google Pixel 4 Review: Hands-on

Google Pixel 4 review: Hands-on The Google Pixel 4 adds a second rear camera lens and hands-free motion controls, but otherwise this feels like a small step forward - but at least it's cheaper than last year's model.
Should I Buy The Google Pixel 4?
The Pixel 4 doesn’t feel like a transformative upgrade, but iterative camera improvements could still be enough to help the Pixel reclaim its crown as camera king after some fierce competition this year.
Elsewhere, the Pixel 4 isn’t a specs powerhouse to rival the best in the market, but tight integration of Google Assistant into the OS could make this one of the most user-friendly phones around - so long as you can turn the gesture controls off.
