Gboard for iOS will now let you share YouTube clips and locations on Google Maps

Google is updating its Gboard keyboard app on iOS to add some pretty nifty features. The app now gets YouTube and Google Maps integration. So aside from being able to do web searches right from the keyboard, you can just now tap on the G icon and look for something. If the YouTube clip shows up or a location or address of a specific place from Maps is pulled up, you can just send it to the person you’re messaging. Aside from that, the app will now also let you draw or doodle with its new Ink feature. All you need to do is tap on the emoji button and tap on the pen icon. The keyboard app now also supports three new languages: Arabic, Hebrew, and Farsi.

iMCO Watch is the newest Alexa-powered smartwatch

You may or may not have heard of CoWatch, an Amazon Alexa-powered smartwatch that launched last year. The device just got rebranded and is now called iMCO Watch. It just launched in India via Yerha.com, an Indian e-commerce startup. The iMCO Watch also brings Alexa’s voice assistant feature to the wearable and will let you do what most smartwatches do, such as asking for the weather or controlling your smart home. It can be activated via a crown button on the side of the device or tapping on the Alexa icon on the display. You don’t get voice activation here, though. It runs on Cronologics OS, which is an Android-based operating system. It works for both Android and iOS but with the computing happening on the watch or the cloud, you really don’t need a phone for it to work all the time.

The iMCO Watch is made with mostly stainless steel and it sports a ceramic ring. The smartwatch also comes with water and dust resistance. It has a 400 x 400 pixel AMOLED display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB onboard storage, and a slew of sensors, including an accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, and heart rate sensor. It comes in Mineral Silver and Carbon Black for ₹14,990 (around CA$300).

Netflix brings ‘Choose your own adventure’ format from books to the screen

If as a kid you’d love reading the “Choose your own adventure” books, this new format Netflix is introducing is bound to be popular with the young ones of this digital generation. After two years of testing it out, Netflix launches its first of two Interactive Storytelling titles: Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale. Coming on July 14th is the second story, which is Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile. Netflix partnered with the likes of Dreamworks, American Greetings, Robot Chicken, and Stoopid Buddy Stoodios to help bring these complex, non-linear stories to life. Puss in Book has already launched globally, making it the first of its kind to be available on such a large scale.

The story will have the viewer make a choice at certain points and you’ll be given around 15 to 20 seconds to choose. If your kid is watching on a TV, it’ll be by using the remote, while if you’re on a tablet, they can tap on their choice. At launch, the right-to-left languages (like Arabic) won’t be supported but they will be coming soon, according to Netflix. It’s available first on TVs and iOS with Android, Apple TV, and Chromecast not yet in the works. However, the two shows will be available on those platforms as a linear story. We can’t say how popular the format will be but it does show us how Netflix is stretching its tech side and how storytelling can evolve in the future. While launching first with children’s titles, Netflix isn’t ruling out trying it out with adult content, too.
